Did Grant play under Wagner? We need him, Grady and Pereira firing next season.

I think Wagner had left by the time Grant came in. Mounier was Huddersfields striker under Wagner from memory.

Pereira wont be here next season.

I agree with you if / when he is sold. I'm hoping we decide to keep hold of him to spearhead our promotion push.

Schalke are a big club in name only their fan base is probably the 2nd biggest in Germany but it is a club riddled with debt and has a legacy of multiple years of mismanagement how Wagner got them to 5th is the surprise not that they flat lined in the 2nd half of the season.

Like a number of German clubs with a large fan base, Schalke are a very hard club to manage. There is no overall majority shareholder and there is a lot of infighting with the fans also having an important voice. Against that backdrop, no manager gets an easy ride. In fact, they incredibly got through 5 managers last season (including one Christian Gross)! In that sense, the job Wagner had there was far from easy.

So if Wagner is appointed as new manager do we start each game with Ride of the Valkyries as players go out onto pitch?

Whoevers decision it was to offer the job to Wagner ( If that is the case !) could have pulled off a masterstroke.

All the talk has been about Wilder and his achievements at Sheffield, Lampard and his possible big name contacts, Appleton and his past association with the club, but we had forgot about what Wagner has achieved.

He got a club like Huddersfield promoted to the premier when really a club like Huddersfield had no right to play 2 seasons in the premier. Keeping them in the premier for a second season is something our own legend , Megson, couldn't achieve.

He is a manager who is worshipped in Huddersfield just as our own Megson is worshipped down here.

Also if things go okay he could be with us for a few seasons giving us some stability.

By all accounts he will get the players as fit as they have ever been which can't be a bad thing.

I wish him all the best and just hope we give him time.  West Brom fans are a fickle bunch and are quick to call for a manager to be sacked when he has a few bad results.

We are not going to play like Man City or Liverpool basically because we are in a lower league with a lower class of player. So for me its horses for courses. If we have to roll our sleeves up to grind an important result out so be it.

Would be nice if he could talk Pereira into staying another season

I have been trying to put together my thought but no need, these some them up completely.

He was not my choice but having spent some time reading different articles about his coaching act. I am warming to the idea.
As for Lampard, the first London club that came in for him he'd be gone, no chance of any longevity there I'm afraid.

I'm all in if it means we can napalm the Vile should we meet them in a Cup this coming season.

West Brom fans have never been fickle tbf. If you want fickle see the Vile fans!
Agree with another poster above, what will be will be. We've been divisive enough with Bilic and Sam. Let's get behind the bloke, get back to the prem (even though we all hate it lol VAR & all) and hopefully Lai can sell up and we all live happily ever after.
When the dust dies down, I think it could've been worse!

Blimey, you're starting to moderate your views Smeth. Last time wasn't it a nuclear strike on Villa park and training ground?  :o

No we don't, we need a quality forward.

Given this underwhelming appointment I won't hold my breath.

Pereira is a class act and owes us nothing; the other two aren't good enough for the Premiership and owe us a good season and the we should be looking to move them on.

He signed a contract with us, he's our player, we pay him. He knew when he signed we might not get promoted / if we did we might get relegated. No one in England knew him until he came here. He owes us plenty, to continue to play and perform until we agree a sale.

Napalm for breakfast, the nuclear option's still on the table for dinner and tea. They can chew on the leftovers for supper as there'll be no fish on offer. And if hell ever freezes over we can sort them on the ice. All to the sound of Wagner's Ride of the Valkyries. SOTV  8) .

Sadly, contracts mean very little in football when the player in question wants to move. Add to that Brazilian players usually go wherever the money is.

I’d start coming to terms with the reality that Pereira will be sold before the summer ‘21 transfer window closes.

I don't know. When I want some plumbing done I take the advice of a plumber, and I know about as much about plumbing as Lai seems to know about football.

By the same token if I want advice about buying a car i would rather talk to the franchise owner than a spotty oik with greasy hair and pearly white smile masquerading as a sales exec.

I think it's ridiculous to suggest that under Wagner the ball will be sailing over Pereira's head. It might be in the Premier League but no more so than under at least a couple of the managers lots of posters seemed perfectly happy with.

The Pereira test is a an interesting hypothetical. Assuming keeping Pereira is a practical option but not selling Pereira means that the manager has a lot less to money to play with to reshape the squad elsewhere what do you do? More importantly is Wagner more or less likely to need the Pereira money to reshape the squad than some of the alternatives? My view is less.

Finally on the Pereira theme if you can't work his talents into your tactical set up you are rubbish as a coach end of debate.
