  1. This is so true, McGinn even commented on it in his first season, he said hed spent 6 months just trying to understand where to pass the ball, the runs his team mates would make, etc
  2. I'd assume so, recently made the brazil squad suggests he was being monitored.
  3. Hoped for something more established but this is probably what I was expecting. I wonder if FFP has restricted us.
  4. Disappointing that we didnt make a change until we were 5 nil down. Unbelievably city made the first change of the afternoon when their work was done. I know we dont have options but you simply cant bury your head in the sand, you have to try something different
  5. I agree, for what we paid his assist and goal return is decent. If he was an option off the bench I'd be pretty happy, the problem is hes our starting winger so you expect a little more.
  6. I'd love benteke, call it nostalgia, call it whatever you want I just think that sometimes certain players and certain clubs belong together.
  7. In which case I'd go with what weve got. The reality is we wont sign a top class keeper and we badly need to strengthen up front, thay would be my priority.
  8. Huge blow, what's the latest on steer/kalinic. Weve got 4 senior keepers, we should have options here.
  9. Two forwards now needed In this window, can we recall RHM
  10. Southgate has never rated him, in the under 21s he barely picked him, he wont take him to the euros, he just doesn't value that type of midfield player.
  11. Naaah, they play every day, that's not an excuse. He was either injured or he just didnt care. I'd buy a lack of match fitness if you're asking him to play 90 minutes. We didnt
  12. But surely that's relevant, he wasnt fit enough for 20 minutes, how do you want him to play 90. Was he injured, he looked very bad.
  13. Wow, that we terrible. He looked exhausted. Wed have been better without him.
  14. I feel the same, the turn around is absolutely incredible, we were nearly broke and possibly looking at playing league 1 football. Instead were back in the prem, weve given a great account of ourselves with a branch new team at some of the biggest stadiums in the country and we sell out every week. Keep going Dean, you have my support.
  15. Would be very surprised to see hause go on loan, it would make no sense. Only recently signed, has played the last couple, isnt likely to benefit playing elsewhere.
  16. Me as well, no point in us risking signings from european leagues that will need time to settle though. Wonder if we could get snodgrass back.
  17. It's the sort of signing I'd expect, were desperate and need players that can hit the ground running in the league and improve on the current crop. While I wouldnt personally go for drinkwater, I fully expect to see highly paid fringe players who need to restart their careers.
  18. Give our current crisis should we not be considering chester or does that tell us all we need to know?
  19. https://www.whufc.com/news/articles/2019/december/28-december/west-ham-united-statement Looks like west ham have gone quickly
  20. I think this result will be the end of him. Wouldnt be my choice but it's hard to defend recent results and performances.
  21. Another option is Shane long, out of contract in the summer but Southampton have a price I'm sure. We need someone with his energy.
  22. I loved john Gregory...... I realise that obviously. I just dont think we would improve us enough to keep us up so what's the point. Without better wide players, he would resort to the same as wesley, desperately chasing the ball, isolated from the midfield. Hes not mobile enough to make a difference to our front 3 while we have trez and algazi. I'd rather see davies or kodija get a run.
  23. Barely threaten yesterday against a bottom 3 side with a fresh centre back pairing.
  24. But to put him in our team he has to do the role wesley has been. Be a direct threat, control balls smashed 40 yards down the pitch and bring others into play. Chase across the back 4. Pukki at villa wouldnt get to play like pukki at norwich IMO. Keinan seems to perform better because hes more mobile and our team needs a mobile striker.
