West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Nathan Ferguson

I’ve got to say, even taking away all offensive elements to his play, first and foremost his defending (his box, crosses, one-on-ones) absolutely superbly.

New deal please!

The kids a class act. I'm sure he will be the club captain within a year or two.

Agree with this.

When he plays well, we play well. It’s that simple.

After the dross we’ve been served up in midfield these last 5 years or so, it’s a pleasure to watch him play. Long may if continue.

Time to give O'Shea a chance.

I wouldn't fancy playing O'Shea with Ferguson LB - way too inexperienced.

Other than that one ricket, he hasn't played badly this season.

When Hegazi comes back, that's when we may see him depart the first 11.

Anyone care to dare when / if he’s going to keep a clean sheet this season?

Or more so, when are the 'team' going to keep a clean sheet?

Defensively outstanding. Even at Left back he did a fantastic job. It's great having two really competent right backs, after some of the dross in that position that we've had over the last few years.

He also seems a really positive, switched on guy, so keep it up, Nathan.

My concern is that - and I might be wrong here - but is he out of contract at the end of the season?

Ugly, but very good point in the circumstances.

Subs changed it and eventually - eventually! - the ability to press higher up the pitch and take gambles put them under pressure.

I thought Nathan Ferguson was simply outstanding in an unfamiliar position. He actually looks like a very solid defender.

It’ll look a great point if we can turn Huddersfield and the Cowley’s over next week.

Fulham are a good side but we are making them look amazing. No intensity or pressing from us whatsoever.

Too right. Where’s the energy? The gamble? We’re losing here...

No intensity or urgency at the minute (well, all game actually).

Asking Austin to run around on his own. Not sure what the plan was, although Fulham have huge quality.
Sleep walking to a 2-0 loss here.

in my time best Godden worse Johnstone

We've had far, far worse than Johnstone. Pascal Zuberbühler? He was absolutely atrocious. I'd say Carson was worse too.

100% starts for me next game. Looks classy and direct - exactly what we need.

I like Krovinovic but I’d seriously consider playing MP as a no. 10, or even a change of system - 433 - as we don’t need two holding mids in certain games, especially at home.

It’s way, way, way too slow. Defenders and midfielders passing sideways. We’re not learning at all from or first 4 games.

We need to liven up. If a penalty save isn’t enough to motivate you, nothing is.

Two performances against a stubborn Millwall team - both at home too - and we have looked really, really poor.

It is clear Burke cannot play upfront on his own, especially when playing against a team that sits in deep, when he is required to hold up the ball.

Suddenly, after dominating corners against Forest, we now can't defend one to save our lives. It's not like we're lacking the height in the team either.

Expecting much, much better against Luton on Saturday.

Not sure about this - experience is invaluable but we have plenty of options in deep central midfield areas.

And yet people tell me that he shouldn’t go out on loan!

There is a good player in there, one i’m confident will make the grade at championship level, but there is no point letting them stagnate here. Send him out on loan till January, the same as Leko. Both need a run of games.

I feel like I’ve been saying this on repeat for the last three years.

I think both of them have lost a huge amount of development time by sitting on our bench and playing for the under 23s.

Regardless, would you have been disappointed if Johnson had conceded that goal? He would have had pelters from fans and no defender would have been criticised

Not disputing that the goalkeeping was absolutely dreadful - without a doubt the worst part of the goal.

What I was saying was the overplaying at the back caused the clear chance at goal; something we saw time and time again last season.

No, if you watch again, it was poor goalkeeping.

But the overplaying at the back led to the unnecessary chance - as bad as the goalkeeping was.

Luton messing around with it at the back. Where have we seen that before?  ;D

(The goalkeeper did chuck it in the back of the net though...)

Hooters used to be a good spot pre game...

Hooters is the designated Away pub I'm led to believe...

The signing that we've needed the for the last few years - athleticism, technical and can spot any kind of pass. Really looking forward to watching him play.

Outstanding business for that price. He’s a player I desperately wanted us to go for so hopefully he will come up with the goods - whether that’s as a CB or CDM.

Seems a bit arsey from Van Der Sar. Foster would have been in his early 20's at United, I'd hardly say he's an unprofessional footballer during his career.

True, but he’s known to be a poor trainer and especially in his younger days, didn’t take football seriously.

Seems a nice fit for him - really hope it all works out and will follow their results curiously.

Time to just shut it down. We’re getting absolutely nothing from it and any player with a single ounce of talent is simply being hoovered up. It flat out stinks.

West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Jay Rodriguez
« on: June 04, 2019, 07:50:33 PM »
To be honest, a lot of people didn't rate him all season. It's £10 million, most transfers are instalments and this is 10 broken into two payments. Don't understand the problem really. Remember the wages are what kills a lot of clubs.

We signed him for 12 mill two season ago. He’s only 29 and he scored 22 goals this season. Take into account general inflation of transfer fees of the last few years and it only paints a worse picture. As if the Club couldn’t have any worse press at the minute.

Our Club is an absolute shambles - no two ways about it. A laughing stock doesnt do it justice.

So we have effectively got rid of him for 5 mill (+5) and Evans for 3.5 mill in the last two years. Absolutely seething.

There are surely much, much better ways to organise his departure for not going up.
