Not Reach, no.  He does have pedigree in the Championship, so that’s an oversight on my part.  Although he’s a player totally lacking any kind of form for a long time now.

 

 

Well I’m not going to start tearing strips off our players after 2 league games into the season.

 

But put it this way, from mid-October to early-November we have 7 league games in 3 weeks.  And from mid-November to 2nd January we have 12 league games in 6 weeks.

 

Having strength in reserve is going to be key this season.

 

Do you think honestly think the squad we have now has enough quality in depth to negotiate its way through that gruelling fixture list?

Agree we need loads more... especially the way monk has them pressing .

Nope, still without a club.

 

Just shows, all these players that people said should be playing can't even get a club on a .free

Bad time to be a free agent, there was reportedly over a thousand of them and everyone wants smaller squads with budget cuts and salary caps.

 

Hutchinson is a very good player but will be in and out of a team and clubs can’t afford that now

Plus he’s known since January that he needed to find a new club.

Think hutch is in the same boat as lots of players. But he was probably on better money than many of them ( so being faced with a bigger cut) and clubs will be even more wary of his injury/ discipline issues than previously. Shame because a fully fit hutch is a bloody good player.

Birmingham City are close to securing the signing of experienced and versatile Spain international Mikel San Jose, according to BBC West Midlands reporter Richard Wilford.

San Jose is currently a free agent after leaving Athletic Bilbao after a decade with the Spanish side where he managed to make over 300 appearances. The 31-year-old has been a key player for the Spanish club throughout his time there, but he was limited to just nine appearances in the league last campaign.

The one time Spain international has the ability to play both as a central defensive midfielder and as a centre-back, which would make him a potentially ideal option for the Blues to provide extra depth and quality in two key areas of their squad.

Sheffield Wednesday remain interested in doing a loan deal for Kenneth Zohore this summer, but it’s emerged that West Brom have slapped an £8m fee on the striker’s head in a bid to raise funds. (The Athletic)

time we move on from this imo. We need someone in ASAP and it seems this is just going to drag on and on.

It seems we have a bit of money to spend, Leko bid, reports we where willing to buy Zohore. Surely we can get someone half decent in up top. Someone like Bonne or Jutkiewicz would be massive improvements imo.

Exactly, it would undo all the sensible work if we desperately splashed the cash on another striker who looked good a few years ago. I'd personally hope we'd be smarter and go for someone on the rise with resale value or make a canny loan signing or seeked out a bargain from abroad or something. We look much improved and only need 3 or 4 more decent signings, an extra bit of quality would compliment our new work ethic and energy in the team. I hope we make more smart signings like Brown and Windass, we don't have to break the bank it would be reckless to do so again, when this season looks like we have built a solid platform to build from for the future.

If we have something to spend, then it needs to be used smartly for around 3 quality players, not splashed out on one signing. Someone like Bonne or similar would offer better value for money with resale value, I hope that will remain our direction, the likes of Sanderson look promising too. There is better value out there, we have showed we can find bargains and make smart signings recently.

So unless a related team want him he stays at West Bromwich on £50k p.w. until they agree to a loan deal at 10:00pm in transfer deadline day where a desperate championship team agree to pay half his wages then

I just hope that we aren’t the team that panics last minute and pays over the odds for players. We need to have signings sorted well before the end of the window so we don’t panic and pay crazy wages.

Just goes to show that so many involved in football are out of touch, Zahore is not good enough for the Premiership and who in the Championship are going to pay 8million and pay him 50k a week especially with no one going through the turnstiles.  NEXT.

That grueling fixture list is the same for every team. Some are better equiped than we are and some probably worse. Don't let our good start fool you, this season is still about survival after a 12 point deduction, anything more is a bonus. We wiill suffer if we get a few injuries, so do all the other teams. Let's wait until the window closes before we start to panic.

 

So far so good.

Depends what feedback we’ve been given re.Zohore.

If the player has indicated he wants to come here then I’d persevere with trying to agree terms with wba.

If the player himself is unsure because he has options then we should probably walk.

Also, if - for arguments sake - it's a choice between a smart buy like Bonne for a modest fee or a loan for Zohore on top dollar, I’d choose Bonne.
