    RDL not convinced by at all but would happily give him another chance. McCormack and Gardner can go. We need more pace and energy, not more of a lack of it! Happily give Gil another chance as he's a player I like, but not convinced we will. Gollini hasn't even been playing has he? But I always thought he was a bit harshly criticised. I'm guessing Tshibola isn't gonna make it...will be sold now?

    Bruce has failed, but it's a very fine line of failure. I'll say it again, but my worry is who do we replace him with. We ain't going to get no top manager to drop down a league, and anyone else is a gamble imo. Bruce would be the safer bet, because we know he does have it in him to get teams out of this league. With the money spent, and being the biggest club in the division comes along with that a lot of pressure. I'd be happy for him to go providing we have a good replacement. The reality is that I don't think there is a good replacement available.

    It definitely could be, but we wouldn’t be getting a player anywhere near as good as him as replacement. In the Championship, I think those kind of players make a massive difference - possibly not so much in the Prem. Would I rather have £30m or Jack Grealish? Probably the latter.

    Its easy to say promote a youngens and rely on them but I don't think they are anywhere near ready. Rhm came on against Bolton and looked as though he's never played before, Davis goalscoring record will not help us next season, ohare doesn't look ready just yet either. Sulliman failed in his loan because he is not there physically yet so he'd have no chance in this division. We have some great young talent there's no denying that but throw them all in to early and there careers will be over before they've even started.

    I've always said Gil could be at least a good player at this level, would not at all be against bringing him back in but that said, he has said before that he has no interest at playing at this level so not sure I can see a way back for him, unless his mind has changed... McCormack is too old, expensive and limited for my mind, one of those who is a hindrance to how the team plays overall. Gollini was a car crash first time around, personally think Steer will be fine. RDL I agree should be a solid option at this level. Gardner I guess fine as 4th choice but depends on how much he earns and whether there's someone in our U23's who is at least as capable, which I think there is in Doyle-Hayes and Lyden, so would let him go. Therefore I'd definitely want to keep Gil and RDL if possible.

    If we manage to keep the core of the team and sign the better loan players no reason we cannot win the league. Grealish only played half a season and Kodija a few games. Keep Bruce. If we have to sell a few to balance the books and rely on bringing the youth players through then you need a new manager. I think this team would have got top 2 without the injuries to key players and add in the fact the teams coming down are no great shakes and 2 of the best teams Wolves and Fulham went up there is nothing to fear. No reason we cannot sign Snoddy and Johnson. Amavi money and the saving on Gabbys wages should cover the chunk of that. Bree to replace Hutton. Elphick to partner Chester saving Terrys wages. Kodija to replace Grabben. OHare for Onomah. It sounds easy it's probably not but if that did happen and we keep Jack you would want Bruce to manage.

    Jack Grealish

    Obviously would be great to keep him, but not beyond the realms of possibility that Grealish money could be reinvested smartly so that we're better off overall. It can be done, although I wouldn't trust current management to do that.

    If we are forced to sell, anything less than £50m would be laughable. Although he isn't quite the finished product yet, the "world class" potential is surely there for all to see.

    So with FFP looking an issue and gaps to fill, i think all those players returning now should be kept as part of the squad. We have failed to sell them so i see little point trying again when our need for players is so great. Gollini, RDL & Gil could all play important parts in the squad. Gary Gardner is fine as 4th/5th choice DM. Mcormack, if fit, could contribute. I think our efforts would be better getting them back in than looking for buyers this summer.

    Madness. He gets an easy ride? What should we be on him for? He is MOTM 95% of the time.

    get a better box to box midfielder to play with Hourihane and play 4-4-1-1 or 4-1-3-2

    Also potentially have Gollini coming back
  20. He didn’t need to address it. His keeper helped the team get to the Champions League final. His keeper made great saves during that same game. They finished fourth in the league too - again, he hasn’t cost them. The only time he has cost them has been, unfortunately for Karius, in the biggest game in European football. The difference between Liverpool losing against Real and Liverpool winning was not the fact they didn’t have, say, David De Gea in goal - and even De Gea looked shaky as hell for a season or so at Man Utd. So, yes, garbage.

    He has dodgy moments and is the worst kicker I've seen, but other than that, fairly solid. I have absolute confidence that Jed Steer will be just as effective, I don't think a goalkeeper is a priority for us at all.

    Thing is as long as we don't play him as a 10 (thus blocking OHare) then I don't see how he blocks anyone's progress. There isn't anyone in U23s who has his skill set, pace, strength little bit of technique. Jake Doyle Hayes is the only CM anywhere near the team and he's a very different player.

    Champions League final: Real Madrid vs Liverpool

    To which he single handedly cost them the game, and also made mistakes and let in soft goals throughout the league season. Everyone knows their keepers are a weak link and he has done nothing to address it, that's why they lost the final in the way they did. The only thing 'utter garbage' are your posts in this thread.
