West Bromwich Albion FC / Re: Matheus Pereira

Grealish go Man City for £100m reportedly close. Opens up the prospect of Pereira to Villa for decent money.
85 million and they can buy a space at the negotiating table. Another 15 million for the chair to sit at it. Then we can talk price for Perreira.

Sometimes appointments just feel right, this is one of them. I also felt the same about Mowbray and Di Matteo so fingers crossed it’s the hatrick!
good in the Championship and an utter failure in the PL? I’m hoping it’s more 3rd time lucky!

Is that Mendes from that lot down the road?
yup, That Jorge Mendes.

Not a great look for Gattsuo thought, it’s the 6th/7th club he’s managed and he’s only 43…

It really is the last chance saloon now for lockdowns. The reason given was so we can get another 10m jabs done. There really is no further justification after this 4 week point.
there is one, but it’ll have to be proven that there is a variant that the vaccines done work on and we’ll have to revert to square one while we isolate the new version again.

Otherwise I agree there is no other reason

Why is the crowd constantly whistling? Sounds awful and kinda ruining the appeal of the crowd being back
To my knowledge it's just what the Turks do. Should only be an issue in their games as no one else really does it to the same degree.

Celtic have found their new boss (Ange Postecoglou) and he's not mentioned on here so thats 1 horse filled on the managerial merry go round. What happened with them and Howe do we know?
had heard he’s waiting on the Southampton job. Don’t know how true though.

Appleton doesn't have any real highs though to offset against his lows.
Wilder has had more successes than failures.

Appleton compares far more closely to Irvine than Wilder does.
got Oxford promoted and kept them there on a shoestring while reducing the age of the team, also got runners up in the EFL Trophy twice in a row. He is unbeaten in the PL (albeit that’s only two games :D)and most recently got a Lincoln City team to the playoff finals (somewhere they absolutely had no right to be, a good season would’ve been to not be in the bottom half) while again reducing the age of the team rapidly and having to rely on youth players and loans to do so. He’s been successful whenever he hasn’t been at a total basket case of a club.

Irvine had literally nothing to his name outside being a good coach. To say Appleton has nothing is disingenuous, just because he doesn’t have the silverware. Clarke and Di Matteo were closer to Irvine than Appleton is.

I don’t think it should be Appy, but he’s not a bad option.

Dalglish and Keegan only ones I can think of
Appleton would be like Irvines appointment
how do you come to that conclusion?

Portsmouth and Blackburn were basket cases before he arrived so he can't be judged on his tenure there. Blackpool had the fiasco with the Oyster owner again can you real judge him on his time there. Oxford and Lincoln are the only two jobs he got a fair crack of the whip, memory isn't great on Oxford but seem to recall he got Pompey job on back of what he did there and as for imps nearly got them promoted in 60 years with a relatively small budget.
Pompey was his first job wasn’t it?

You’re correct. I tend to remember he was involved in the benefits of Turmeric as a benefit to to joint problems.
he's got a deal with Brighton to supply them with those Turmeric tablets if I'm not mistaken.

I'll give anyone a fair crack of the whip but I've always wondered regarding Michael Appleton and Derek Mcinnes would we as fans be discussing them as managers if they weren't former players? Id have to say no very unlikely.
McInnes probably not, but Appleton is extremely well regarded in professional circles. Honestly I'm surprised he doesn't get linked to more jobs.

Can we blame him for the lack of a new kit available to buy?
Seriously though why are we so slow releasing our kits every year.
Most teams play in their new kit last game of the season.
Until we get a new owner or someone on the board above this muppet who has even the smallest amount of knowledge about football we will continue to lurch from one disaster to the next
do they? maybe top 6 but from memory it's not a common occurrence.

10 minutes later, Ireland winning 2-1

Just as a point can anybody come up with a sensible reason why every government in the world would wreck their own economy in a bid to control their citizens. If indeed this is what some of us on here think.
OK our government has dropped some howlers during this pandemic I put that down to incompetency not sabotage. In hindsight some things relating to lock down could have been done better.
For me the biggest clanger was not closing the borders early enough and the issue with the care homes. Again I don't believe this was a deliberate act, but another case of incompetency.
There are those that say the medical advice is wrong. I'm sure a lot of us will have friends and relatives who work in the medical sector, I have, and the stories that they tell are harrowing to say the least.
You've all seen the news reels coming out of India, that's where we would be if the government/medics had done nothing.
Yes there's collateral damage that will take a long time to repair, we have to hope that the government have learnt from their mistakes and get it right sooner rather than later.
#GreatReset  ;) \s

If we start him then find out he’s not up to it we are stuck with him until at least Jan transfer window, can we afford that ?
that's why you have a backup, Button is good enough to cover if that scenario happens. though you'd expect it to be picked up before we get to the season start.

made the most of his very limited ability to become the ultimate journeyman
Journeyman?! he's only had 2 clubs in his career!!

On the flip side to those released today I noticed that we've picked up a new guy back in March, someone called Quevin de Castro (think it's said like Kevin?), quick google shows he had a runout with Chelsea earlier in the season against Brentford B and he has played for Bury and a couple of non League teams but not much else.

Anyone heard of him before?

That rated Diaby fellow has gone too from the young UN's list. Can't have been that good.
he was very good, just constantly injured.

If that's true, then I think the club has been sleeping on the job by not being further down the road than it is. They managed to get things agreed with Allardyce whilst Bilic was still in post.
difference was they actively wanted to keep Sam.

Nuno was at Wolves for 4 years, I don't think that's unrealistic for us if we can find the right person.

Speaking of finding the right person, it seems likely that the Board must have known immediately after relegation was confirmed (if not sooner) that Allardyce wasn't going to stay. Therefore, they should be well on their way to finding a successor by now. The new manager should be here in time to have a say regarding the retained list.
if journalists are correct, interviews will be over the next fortnight.

I have been trawling options and this guy seems interesting "Rene Hake" currently at Utrecht
what attracts you to him? Seems like a not particulary great start to his career and Utrecht have picked up about as many points as they usually do for any given Season.

I'm not so sure about the smaller budget bit, their owner is a billionaire.
so is ours...
