    Ethan Ampadu

    Have to say loans worked out very very well for Everton. Gomes and Zouma in the bag after excellent loan spells. No transfer agreements in eitheroan. Gomes told Barca he wouldn't sign for any other club. It's incredible that they got him for 20m

    Ethan Ampadu

    Looks like a great prospect. I have no issue with signing loan players. If we could insert an option to buy in the deal it would be brilliant.
  3. Interesting, he's definitely Leeds most improved player. Biesla played him as a DCM and he was pretty much the fulcrum of their team. Breakout season at 23 years of age. One for a few folks on here to take note of when it comes to writing off academy players! Was impressive against us and sems like a really decent guy too. Could potentially be a great signing but not without risk
  4. Best of luck to him. Good guy. Has proven himself at championship level and the deal is good for him and us at this stage. I always wish our academy players well regardless of what club they end up at.
  5. Still potential there. Should be offered a new contract
  6. His goal today could drag Derby into reaching distance.
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. If Burnley insist on picking Joe Hart then loaning Heaton should be easy
  10. 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?
  11. Delighted. Sensible appointment. Fingers crossed he'll be our Eddie Howe. welcome Dean
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. Bunn is easily the worst keeper I have ever seen at this club. Even for Bruce, this is a wtf moment.
  16. 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.
  17. ? 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
  18. Well if we really have cash and ambition then Brendan Rodgers is gettable. Not happy at Celtic. May as well dream
  19. 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.
  20. Fantastic move for him. I always thought the club link up with a lower level Eredivisie team for exactly this reason.
  21. 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
  23. 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).
