Re: Jack Wilshere

So even pellers screw ups are Sully's fault now. Had we not signed him he would be getting pelters for that as well 'imagine if we had wilshere alongside rice now but sully was too cheap to do the deal' This one is of course on Pellegrini. But Sullivan's problem is that he will take credit/throw ma...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Alex Ferguson didn’t need a DOF, and neither did many of the top British managers. In fact the DOF is not new, but our managers were able to compete very well without them. The DOF has become a bandwagon, but it’s success here is mixed to say the least. The clubs with most success in the PL in the ...

Re: David Sullivan - Has he taken us as far as he can ?

I would genuinely like to drop kick Mr Sullivan from one side of the OS to the other I'd happily do it in phases Imagine that. Just an hour before the game, Ozza's got Sullivan in his arms, gives him a little boot and he goes about a foot. Picks him up, does it again....and again, and again. Gets t...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

If we get relegated, it isn't solely down to the players Very good players get relegated every year. Sometimes teams with lots of decent players get relegated Which is why every close season, Premier League clubs purchase players from relegated clubs That isn't to say i think all the players you ha...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Success in the third tier of English football....he is now back playing second tier football. How good has he been? Few options? We've played with two midfielders most games. That was one spot for Wilshere, Lanzini, Noble, Rice, Sanchez. Why would we want to keep him in the squad when You have all ...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

With the exception of maybe Diagana, our academy prospects are not anywhere near that standard [unfortunately] or have anywhere near that level of experience What's interesting will be is what we do with Diangana next year. He's had a year not dissimilar to Mason Mount (and both are similar ages) i...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Just to add to Pinky's post, he's right. The issue is not really the players coming in, more about who goes out. For me, the essential things have to be Premier League standard improvements for Roberto, Reid, Sanchez, Wilshere, Ajet i. 5 players pretty much stealing a living in our squad (apologies ...

Sell Ajeti and Yarmolenko and put whatever you get from that in the transfer pot. How much would Doucoure cost ? Would he come ?
More than we have ever spent on a midfielder.
And no he wouldn't.

Re: Sheffield United v West Ham United: Match Thread

If we get a competent GK in and Antonio stays fit for most of the games then i think we can get six home wins from that lot and a win at Norwich I don't massively disagree. The issue is going to be injuries. We have a mid-table first XI. We have a Championship second XI. He needs to find a keeper a...

Re: David Sullivan - Has he taken us as far as he can ?

The interesting thing is, either by luck or by judgement, at various points in their tenure here, they have got us into strong positions. Europa cup under Bilic. A fantastic first season where we finished 7th and all was rosy. Transfer window:- Sofiane Feghouli Valencia Free transfer [10] Manuel Lan...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

The problem is Moyes and you can't blame him will want proven Premier League players to for this "relegation battle" not potential players from abroad who could be good but out and out proven in the English game, It's sad but true, not a slight on Moyes. It's a good point. Fornals is starting to lo...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

They absolutely gutted the squad in the summer. Sold every none firs teamed they could and didn’t replace them. The keeper situation has already cost us at least 10 points by my rough estimate and right now anyone of Obiang, Fernandes or Kouyate would be walking into our team. The right hand side ag...

Kinda right up our street if Moyes can get him back to his best
I actually didn’t think that Allen would be a terrible signing, but now that you seem so keen I’ve actually gone off the idea.

N’zonzi, please.

If Moyes wants to play 3 at the back, selling Masuaku would be an odd decision.

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Allen for Sanchez, sure, why not. That still leaves us short in midfield though. So Allen plus one I can live with, but we all know that won't happen. Allen plus one would be great. Allen on his own still offers us more than Wilshere and Sanchez. It's a step up. Not a big one, of course. But it wou...

I admire those who saw through it right from the off but I didn't - I cut these parasites slack for years - tell me if I'm wrong TTS but I think you did too - remember all the gradual re-building talk lads and lasses like us tried to get across in say, the Allardyce years? Yep. 100%. I never wanted...

I would say my first and last lines apply to both players. Rice Noble Lanzini Snodgrass Wilshere Coventry Any fancy a game? Fine, see who gets here first out of Josh or Carlos. Would be my order of preference for the central midfielders we have under contract (assuming certain people can get fit en...

Re: The January Transfer Window 2020

Interesting isn't it. We let Leon Britton go when he was 21. He became a pretty decent Premier League midfielder 5 or 6 years later. I think that everyone matures at different ages. Personally, I think Cullen could actually be quite useful in our midfield and think that if we had kept him on this ye...
