  1. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Patrick Roberts is finishing his loan with Celtic this summer. He isn't looking likely to break into the Man City team - perhaps we should swoop in to get him on loan?
  2. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    Not sure about his injuries but he hasn't played a lot. I'm probably leaning more to not wanting us to sign him when all is said and done. Can't think of a good winger who is young, hungry, making the step up etc.

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/39631329 Max Gradel could be leaving Bournemouth. Just what we need on the wing? Issues; high wages, he's 29 and he has not played very much football this season. Plus points; proven at this level and above, can be a travel buddy with Jimmy Danger (you know? YEAH) for Ivory Coast games, would give us more options on the wing where we don't have fantastic depth. Tricky one to call.
  4. Ticket information

    I very nearly bought tickets via them or Viagogo for a Barcelona match. Luckily more tickets became available for about 1/3 of the price they wanted. These websites are morally wrong in my opinion as surely it encourages people to buy tickets and then sell them at a profit. I'm glad I bought my tickets a few weeks back now though!

    Jota from Brentford?
  6. Transfer Speculation Summer 2017

    We don't need to spend massively to get the squad even more ready for a promotion push next season. More of the January type signings (Hourihane and Lansbury) who were key players at this level for their former clubs with their contracts were running down. Those are the deals we should be looking for this summer to reduce financial risk and increase chances of success on the field with players already doing it at this level. Perhaps a loan deal or two as well.

    Maybe Barry will go to Brighton on a one-year deal to ensure he gets appearances up in the PL? He's from down there and started his youth career at BHA. (This isn't linked to any reports or anything just a loose guess)

    Let him go he was terrible here.
  9. The push for the Play offs ?

    I still don't think we will do it. I kind of don't want us to - it will mean another squad overhaul which we could do without. I just want this good run to continue and finish around 8th or 9th.
  10. Andre Green

    I think he could be the best player to come out of the academy since Gareth Barry if he continues in this vein. He appears to have his feet on the ground and the right mentality. If he can keep that he will go very far! I love his play, he's quick, tricky, can take on a player, works very hard to get back and defend and he very rarely wastes possession. He clearly is switched on and bright. Keep it up Andre!
  11. Atmosphere at the club

    Very pleased with last nights result against Bristol City and in particular second half performance. However I was left with a bad taste in my mouth due to some fellow fans sat around me and my mates. One the lads I was with was having a moan here and there notably when Johnstone kicked the ball out in a really panicked way and Gardner was playing poorly at one point. To my surprise a group of fans sat in front of us, one in particular, turned around and started having a go at us. I was quite shocked at how aggressive they were being in their tone and I hadn't actually said anything negative personally. I said to him that everyone is entitled to an opinion and lots of other people are moaning (including them!) at various points during the match. I just got told to F off repeatedly and I was told to "watch my mouth" whilst he was clearly reaching boiling point looking like he could explode at any moment. He also came out with some rubbish about "where have you been for the last 5 years" which made no sense - we'd never met before and he had no idea the amount of games we had been to. Plus, if he thinks Bristol City at home on a Tuesday night is some kind of glory hunting he is completely gone upstairs. It was all getting very silly and about "I'm a better fan than you" type stuff. For well over 90% of the game we got behind the lads and moaning is just a natural reaction to something that happened in that instance. Why am I posting this? I just wanted to get it off my chest and if any of those lads are reading this, I'm not here to trade blows or insult you. I just want to point out that you were wrong last night to act like you did and I hope you learn from it. No one should go to Villa Park and sit with fellow supporters and be spoken to like crap and be threatened. I understand passion but you crossed a line.

  13. Steve Bruce

    My take on this was at the time we didn't appear to be in any danger, so signing these players would give them more time to settle in for next season. Now that we are on a terrible run it does come across as that he is contradicting himself. I'm generally happy with our new signings but we need to play a better system - one with more natural width.

  15. Please tell me when to stop laughing at SHA
