From the outside yes I agree it does seem bizarre that we wouldn't want to knock this one on the head, my only guess is we will assess our options at the end of the transfer window and it could be concluded then.

There's a likely chain here.  We sell Berahino (£20m) and then buy Phillips (£7m). That enables us to sell McManaman (£4m) We still need a striker though, which I think may well be Walters (£4m). Would still have £13m left but now look a fair bit stronger.  Can we then find an attacking CM?

Would have expected Arsenal would want it ended as much as us so they could sort something out for him to go and get games elsewhere as its clear he'll be wasting a year worth of development here. This loan deal currently doesn't suit either club or the player.

Several Championship clubs should want him on loan.  Maybe we should agree to pay part of his wages for rest of the season to get him loaned to another club.  Would free up most of his wages and free up another loan place for us

Berahino, £20m? Dream on.

I think we'll get it. Spurs opening offer will be around £18m and likely to be more up front than last time.  Think it's looking far likelier after they sold Townsend today and also got Adeboyor's wages off their payroll.  They are desperate for cover for Kane with Clinton Njie injured.  Still think Newcastle and Leicester might pounce, which will stop Levy from trying to be too clever on the offer

Time will tell.  The egos of Levy and Peace are the two biggest barriers

I think the biggest barrier is no one in their right mind would stump up the kind of cash we're after for Berahino in this transfer window.
Out of condition, out of form, and out of the team.

It's more than optimism, verging on fantasy. I agree with you, Berahino will still be here at the end of the window, and we won't be buying anyone. Fairly sure of it tbh

I know it's an old article but it is kind of telling about what a waste of a loan this was and you have to question what on earth were Arsenal doing loaning him to us.

It also says a lot about why we get very little entertainment, we stifle attacking play and concentrate on working hard and defending.

Serge Gnabry responds with two words when asked what went wrong at West Bromwich Albion.

Anyone like to guess the two words?

Well how did things turn out?

Gnabry is now playing regularly for one of the best teams in Europe we are in the Championship and Pulis is unemployed or more accurately waiting for his next victim to stumble into his parasitic grasp.

I am just grateful that that era is over.

That will probably be Stoke then.

Gnabry, like Greg is a class player, Pulis just didn't know how to use him and was not prepared to give him a chance. Probably 'didn't work aaaard enough'

Gnabry is indeed a quality player. He also looked disinterested and the best part of a stone overweight compared to what he is now while with us. I don't think the fault for his poor returns here were entirely with Tony Pulis. Thankfully for Serge it appears the penny (or Euro) has dropped for him, I wish him all of the best. I realise it takes two to tango but I can't help thinking it's a pity he didn't appear to apply himself more fully when here.

If you don't know how to use them, they will never be enough.

I'm afraid this just underlines what Pulis does to players. He can't recognise genuine skill, or if he can, he makes the player compromise so much, that it takes the edge off what he's best at. If we'd had Messi under Pulis, he'd probably have been in and out the team if he wasn't tracking back into the defensive block. And Messi probably isn't that good at tackling.
l watch alot of German football and Gnabry has everything you want from a striker. I'd love to have seen him managed by Billic.

As I said at the time, what is Wenger's excuse? We only had him on loan after all...

I can understand Wenger wanting to loan him out because of the better quality players at Arsenal. But yes, he should have known better than to loan him out to a club managed by Pulis.

Young Serge has just put 4 past Spurs. Why was he rubbish at the Albion then?  ;D

When he was here he didn't look anything special, couldn't get near the Arsenal team, maybe his loan spell here gave him the kick up the backside he needed to get his career on track. Easy for players to blame others when sometimes the issue is closer to home for them.
