Better than fat boy slim but that's not saying much and we still have at the moment on the books.UN F BELIEVABLE !
If he's to sit on the bench so we can sell Berahino, it makes some kind of sense.

He is pretty bad, he had a decent Euro's but we've seen over and over again the dangers of buying players based on tournaments.

With this said the only surprise is its taken this long, he's basically a worse version of Jon Walters. Pulis loves that kind of player.

As long as he puts a shift in thats all TP is worried about.

If it looks like we're keeping berahino, and we have Rondon, then at least Kanu is a better option than Vic or lambert.

Really underwhelming though.

Doubt he's any better than Vic and that's saying something!!!
Having Saido still here hardly helps the mood level and now this!
Long hard season ahead by the look of the squad....

Trying to compose myself!

If he replaces Lambert and we bring another quality, pacey striker in then this would be OK business for me?

However, if our forward line tomorrow is Rondon, Berahino, Robson Kanu and Lambet then I will probably need lots of whiskey to sit through most of our games

I will always want Albion players to do well, but from what I've seen he's very ordinary and had a good Euros. I wouldn't even want him as a substitute and think the likes of McClean, Leko are much better.

Get rid of Lambert though and it's not too bad.

The club have brought this on theirselves. Spend all summer hyping up offers for Silimani etc and go and grab a freebie. They just want the backlash sometimes.

Maybe re-sign Big Vic is still a better option than signing Robson-Kanu lol

Cheaper wages I bet, probably half what Vic was on.

Awful signing, flattered to deceive at Euros, his league record is absolutely terrible.
If we sign others, to knock him down the pecking orde,r then what the hell he cost nowt, but if this is our last scrape at the bottom of the barrel then we may as well pack it in.

First game where we draw 0-0 again:

Reporter: So Tony, a 0-0 drw, what are your thoughts?

Pulis: Well we worked hard, stuck to our game plan and played some good football. *adjusts hat* GMac worked well, Daws had a good shift and we just didnt finish our chances.

Reporter: Robson-Kanu came on in the second half, do you think he contributed towards the performance?

Pulis: Well, Hal worked hard. He came on and gave us some options, and the intent was there to play some good football.

Reporter: You were linked with Sissoko/Camacho in the market, do you think those signings would have changed the performance today?

Pulis: Well the backroom team worked hard but it just wasnt to be. We never publically said who we are after.

Reporter: Berahino looked out of sorts again, do you think he is disgruntled about not leaving in the summer?

Pulis: Well with Saido, he will work hard and put in the effort required. He is a WBAplayer this season so we expect him to work hard in the next couple games.

You wait all day for pulis to pull a proverbial rabbit out of the hat and what do we get? A has been championship player who could only be arsed in a showcase tournament, a bit like sissoko, time to sling your hook pulis and take Lai with you,you have took the p1$$ with your statement that they have to be better than we have,I suppose your right though he's better than jacksh1te

This might just be a swap for lambert. If it is then it's good business and decent cover in what is quite a thread bare position.

Am I right that our new striker has career stats of 1 goal every 7 games in the championship!!!

We thought Leon Best was a bad option!?

I believe he played on the wing at Reading, in which case his record is far better than Sess's was tbf

Saido's form has declined since his transfer saga but I'm sure he is still much better than Robson-Kanu.

We are crazy if we sign Robson-Kanu as Saido's replacement.

This is spot on, I was doing his voice throughout too.

Embarrassing.

And Reading would have created more chances than we will!
Does anyone else feel stupid that we got embroiled in the Carvalho, Camacho, Slimani hype and we probably end up with the likes of Robson Kanu and McCarthy? When will we ever learn? :'(

this is desperate, he doesnt even have to sign before 11 because hes a free agent, why is he busting a gut trying to get to us leaving the welsh camp behind
