  1. I’m thinking players like the two Newcastle boys and Iorfa.
  2. I can still see large turn-over for one simple reason - age. if we go into next season with a similar squad, we’ll end up with the same injury pile up. i expect us to sign a few freebies from the fringes of the premiership and a hand full of loans.
  3. I think he’ll be sold before next season’s transfer window closes. Anything around £4m i’d say. Was brilliant and unplayable on his day - but I don’t see him recapturing that form with us.
  4. Of the out of contract players, I would say Westwood and Palmer should be offered new deals. Westwood has showed us what a difference he makes, hopefully he’d take a two year deal. Palmer has stepped it up this season and has earned a new deal - maybe not as expensive as other out of contract players. We simply can’t afford Hooper and Lee now - they are too injury prone and on big money. Assuming that we can, I expect Bruce to wheel and deal extensively over the summer and us to have a very different, younger line up next season. I expect a good few loans too.
  5. We hope he bangs in a few more at Norwich and cash in. Nice guy, great finisher in the past- better for all concerned that he moves on to a fresh start.
  6. I can’t think of a better choice. The most successful championship manager is Colin - not an option for us. Looks like we’ve got the second best championship manager. i genuinely thought he did a decent job at Villa - had his hands tied in year one - sacked early in my opinion. A guy who was at Birmingham City for years (and successful) was never going to be well treated at Villa.
  7. One of our many problems is that all of the big, noisy characters are sat in the grandstand watching.
  8. He should really be judged when playing inside a team that knows what it’s doing. at least with Carlos it was clear that the team were following a clear directive.
  9. I like Holloway - but it’s all pointless. Chansiri has appointed Jos and we are stuck with Jos until he walks.
  10. Utter garbage, Jos has to go. How can a manager with Fletcher, Forestieri, Reach and Bannan at his disposal produce a team so poor in possession. We are getting worse.
  11. I wonder if Jos won’t play Hutch because he can’t train as often or at the same intensity as others? i recall Hutch saying that Carlos let him manage his knee problems and when he could and could not train.
  12. I think if he continues to invest to the limit of FFP, he expects the fans to match him. i hope that once we have rode next season out, he buys younger, hungrier players still spending to the limit. i suppose he can’t come and say that we’re bust next season as that reduces the fees that we might get for Reach / Rhodes / Fessi. I’m not defending him - he made a complete mess of it, post Wembley. But I think he might have learned something and buy a different type of play, once we fall back under FFP.
  13. Chansiri pursued a strategy of signing players with pedigree. At the time Jones, Rhodes, Boyd, Abdi all had excellent records in this league. sadly, for whatever reasons, they turned out ineffective, expensive signings and ruined our FFP position. They continue to ruin our FFP position. chansiri has clearly changed strategy - Jos is explicitly reducing the age of the squad. i think Chansiri and Jos are preparing the team for next season - when FFP will strangle us. Season after that, I think Chansiri will budget to the FFP limit again - but buying talented younger players who are less proven in the championship.
  14. When I look at pictures of Jos and the players after games that we’ve won, they don’t look like strangers.
