If the contract can be terminated it’s an option we should exercise. Old Father Time has well and truly caught up with Branna. The money could be used elsewhere.

Would rather see Bartley in the team ahead of him and his wages going on a new signing.

Much as I'm not keen on Dowling this is one of Bilic Boys.
Yes on the basis that “we sold Hegazi but the windows closing and your options are no one or Ivanovic “

Bilic sounded very insistent on BI to me outside of that.

Not at all, they sold Hegazi 40 days after Ivanovic signed? Definitely a Bilić pick.

I believe its been reported in the press that the club wanted to sign Duffy but Bilic wanted Ivanovic.

And given the way it’s worked out for him north of the border, then it’s pretty much like choosing which arm you would want to lose

My apologies, wiki says that we have loaned him (hegazi) to Al Hittiad, I could have sworn he was sold ?

Ivanovic might be better hidden behind a midfield that isn't wide open every week , a Pulis system if you like .

I think he might be better hidden down the back of a cushion or something similar.
Whatever possessed Bilic to sign him?

No idea other than we do lack a bit of experience at the back in the top flight .

The website hasn’t been updated. There were multiple news reports that the deal became permanent at the start of this month.

Hindsight is a wonderful thing but, I have to admit, I thought he would do ok, his record prior to signing for us was decent and he'd played enough games to suggest he still had legs. The Prem is obviously a different animal, especially behind a midfield as bad as ours. Need someone with his experience but who still has gas in the tank!
