Don't think you'r being cynical at all. I've been there, & when you're a rookie, you don't have the experience to fall back on, to put up a counter argument.

I'm not sure a no-risk financial strategy, is going to give us the quick return to the Premier League we were promised.
I just hope Moore gets what he wants , even more reason for a older assistant to come in with him.
I'll keep my powder dry just yet but 5m plus on a young keeper and cheap tickets won't be enough for me.
Overall I think Moore's job has got harder before a ball is kicked.

Would that be so bad? A return to a league we can't compete in where success in finishing forth from bottom.

That's not competition to me, that's dull and boring watching your team getting beat almost every week.

Granted the top 6 can be painful to play and watch against but we got sloppy against the rest of the teams .
As much as being pasted by City and co was boring I enjoyed beating the Sunderland's , Watford's , West Ham's and co . We never had the cup run we should have but our time at the top table wasn't always bad.
Staying where we are now (if it doesn't get worse ) will only lead to the club going backwards in my view.

Fair enough. I guess it depends on your outlook. I'd love us to be what we once were (more than anything) but realistically we can't compete so I'd rather us try and play football and entertain and win more games than we lose. I'm sort of comfortable with the reality now, tired of swimming against a relentless tide of lack of drive, lack of foresight and lack of ambition.

The point is, we were promised by Jenkins, (I'm assuming acting as a voice for GL) that we would "leave no stone unturned" in a bid to get an immediate return to the Premier League.
Personally, I'm not seeing that.

Also personally, I will miss not seeing Premier League football next season, & as others have said, until last season's debacle, we were competing quite well.
If it was easy, it wouldn't be Albion

Jenkins was brought back for one thing and that was to get finance's of club in order, I would be very surprised if any players with release clauses or are valuable assets will be at club for start of season. Rondon, Rodriguez, Chadli, Dawson, Hegazi Mcclean and Gibbs will in my opinion not play a competitive game again for the Albion, freebies, loans and minimum outlay transfers with low wages will be the norm

Can't disagree (although the Johnstone signing was more encouraging) and you can hardly blame Darren Moore for that. I think the reality for most of us is realizing the transfer pool we are now fishing from isn't that great and it will be taking a risk on unproven players with potential or good championship players. Quality premier league players are not going to move to the championship.

not blaming Darren at all but those who are involved in player recruitment, might as well have kept the three players we left go if we are going to replace with similar aged journeymen. And with regards to identifying new recruits do they have to have played for youth team?

I hope DM isn’t another “work ard and do a job” type coach at the expense of genuine ability. We’ve had enough of those type of coaches.

He said he had an extensive list of contacts so not sure where it is.

We need a new young squad and he was supposed to be spearheading a major transition. Hope for his sake we hit the ground running. He needs to be ready to take the flack if we don’t.

How many times doesn’t it need to be said they are only training with us to help them gain fitness to find another club, we aren’t interested in them.

Darren Moore spent his career playing in the second division and below so he’s up to speed on championship journeymen. I don’t trust him - already incompetent enough to release Yacob for god sake who will cost millions to replace. Whole club is as professional as an episode of dream team.

I agree on this, is/was so obviously too good to let go.
Could have used him as the centre pin to build a team around.

It’s all very noble of us but why not send them to any of our local rivals like walsall or Coventry if they want to get fit.

I’d imagine because we have better facilities and it’s costing us nothing to have them adding numbers to the training camps

doesn't sound right, a team that's just dropped out the premiership having to rely on non contracted players to make the numbers up for training, we'll be using jumpers as goalposts next.😕

when relegated there will always be cut backs, just maybe Darren Moore wants to go down the route of playing kids and its his call, it will be his call to take old men on tour to scotland, all new signings will be his call..easy to blame jenkins as big dave is a legend but when the kids arent good enough and we sign players like roofe and sawyers are probably struggling then it will all be down to Darren Moore. It will be the biggest mistake in our history but fans will back him into league1..enjoy

Not a million miles from the truth and why I believe Darren Moore will be relieved of the responsibility well before bonfire night

One quote about taking players on a training camp and all of a sudden we're relegation candidates? Superb.

The club obviously did take these players on to help them with their fitness, if they've shown the fit in well to the group and potentially have something to add Darren Moore would be foolish to come out in the press and say otherwise, there's no harm in looking at the whilst they're training with us.

How about this quote...

Quote
“We have offers in for players at the moment,” he said. “Now it’s just trying to agree fees with the clubs we are trying to get them from from and obviously personal terms.

“Hopefully we can get them over the line and see one or two new faces coming to the club.”

Don't really understand the anti Darren Moore sentiments thus far, nor the fears regarding relegation.
