  1. Still potential there. Should be offered a new contract
  2. His goal today could drag Derby into reaching distance.
  3. Aston Villa and Congo midfielder Aaron Tshibola, 24, is wanted by several clubs in Italy's Serie A. Tshibola has been on loan at Kilmarnock this season. https://www.birminghammail.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/aston-villa-midfielder-linked-surprise-15666215
  4. Fair play to him. Put in a great half season. Loan worked out well for us and him. Be nice if Chelsea loaned us Ampadu to make up for it
  5. If Burnley insist on picking Joe Hart then loaning Heaton should be easy
  6. He's playing really well for them and they play much better when he starts. For that reason alone I'd recall him! Is there a recall option in his loan deal?
  7. Delighted. Sensible appointment. Fingers crossed he'll be our Eddie Howe. welcome Dean
  8. I'd imagine the players would welcome Terry as manager, after his impact last season. Owners probably have different ideas. I expect we'll know either way by the wknd. Be very interesting to see who they appoint.
  9. I'd take Terry any day of the week. Now if you asked me before he arrived here I would never have said that. He was an exceptional leader here and his impact last season cannot be over stated. Of course I'd take Rodgers or Smith as quickly. And not realistic but Marco Rose would be the dream
  10. Well he, sort of. He played 90mins for them in midfield (according to match reports) in their 3-0 cup win over a D4 side. He has been on the bench for every game so is in contention.
  11. Bunn is easily the worst keeper I have ever seen at this club. Even for Bruce, this is a wtf moment.
  12. Made his debut in a 3-1 in the cup during the week. Looks like he played midfield. Be interesting to see if he gets a look in tomorrow. Any Dutch speaker in the house who can figure decipher their fans forum might be able to let us know how he played.
  13. ? I don't like the look of that Spainsh geezer managing Citeh. Everytime we're linked with him I think God no! Who wants a manager that advocates a footballing philosophy based on attacking by actually keeping possession and pressing. Oh and he's always coaching players. It's perverse. Either stick with Bruce or get Warnock
  14. Well if we really have cash and ambition then Brendan Rodgers is gettable. Not happy at Celtic. May as well dream
  15. The usual few over the top reactions. Same people write off different players ever week Tuanzebe, Nyland, Adomah, Kodjia etc. I thought he was the best of the starting 11 against Yeovil.
  16. Fantastic move for him. I always thought the club link up with a lower level Eredivisie team for exactly this reason.
  17. Fulham have made a bid for Valencia full back Martin Montoya.

    I really hope the club say absolutely nothing until they either (a) have a new manager in place, or (b) announce Bruce is staying on. If the Board are competent they must be currently looking at potential managers. They can operate in the background, sound out (tap up) potential targets and get a deal done (or decide Bruce is the best candidate) without the need to do so in the glare of the media/fan base/other clubs. Should take no more than 2 weeks
  19. Oliver Burke is not even making the bench at West Brom. He'd be a great loan signing for us (with an option to buy).
  20. What do you mean by this? Steven was Player of year before O'Neill arrived and got rid of him. We should have handled O'Neill better and not let him ship out Davis and Cahill and spend a fortune replacing them with Knight and Reo Coker.
  21. Don't think he's as bad as some people are making out. We have to be fair and acknowledge that of late (4-5 years?) not many players have improved since joining our senior squad (even some of our own youth players have regressed). Unfortunately we don't have the time now to be cajoling performances out of players that are outside of Bruce's plans so a loan move fro him is the only logical option. This is probably also the reason Bruce won't be recalling McCormack. A move to the lower end of the Dutch league would suit this lad and a few more of our younger players. Its a pity we don't have deal with a Juplier Leageu side for this purpose. We would also do with upgrading our sports psychology department. As a last word, I have yet to meet a professional athlete that could be described as lazy. I don't know what folsk mean by bad attitude but most of these guys live like monks and train at a level most people can't comprehend. (just as an aside)
  22. It getting harder and harder to defend him. Our from has not improved at all and we are looking at midtable at best. Its no beyond the realms of possibility that Bruce could turn things around. The return of Kodija should result in goals and a few wins could provide the platform for a run at the playoffs. However he has to be close to running out of time. While I don't normally advocate early season sackings, I do hope the club have at least begun lining up possible replacements.
  23. Cheers forgot it was an 18 mnth loan deal.
