The way Monk has been talking its pretty obvious that players are put off signing for the club due to the points deduction. 

Is this going to be GMs excuse now he’s got everything he has asked for? I was signing messi and aguero until they realised we were on minus twelve.

Still you offer more money and longer contract there will be many takers. When you are offering the same as other clubs or less then yea the -12 has an impact.

 

Its still  just a  short term  job to many players these days. 

Offering More money and longer contracts is exactly why we’re in a financial mess in the first place.

I don't know? How would I know that? Why ask me that?  You should be asking Mr Monk that question not me. I can only answer for myself not for Gazza, let him tell you, I don't know why you're asking me, I'm not Garry.

 

Sorry.

If it’s a loan, players might not give a monkeys as they just want game time and they can escape if it goes badly. That’s where we will get the quality.

 

I notice Kachunga only has 1 year so he’s in the same boat.

 

Only FDB, Windass and to a lesser extent Dunkley are guaranteed for future seasons.

I am not advocating that , discussing that money is king to most players

If I was Kach I would be busting a gut every game so the manager would want to extend my contract or put myself in the shop window to give myself other options.

You’d think a loan deal with an option to buy next summer would be the best deal for us, the player and WBA

Maybe that's what happened in his medical, and why in turn he only got a 1 year contract? 😄

West Brom fans very confused that they have given Zohore the number 9 shirt for the season, it is a bit strange that they have given him it if he is close to leaving?  They really don’t rate him.

Let's be honest doesn't take much to confuse them, ever talked to one? Nearly as bad as Barnsley fans.

It's scary how few players are contracted to us beyond this season. I make it 9.

Agree but that’s what all players should be doing. When signing a player we should be finding out how ambitious they are, no ambition then bin them off

Hopefully that's what the clubs does.   

 

I hope most players realise that they are probably in the best job they are ever going to have, its unlikely that it will ever get any better.

 

So for a few years don't take this job for granted.

If we stay up it’s probably ok as we are flexible to sign players again on an equal footing and hopefully one or two of the young players will have kicked on.

 

But if we go to league one we can only pay them 2.5k a week. So it would make sense to get a few more Windass type deals done if we can.

They will just give that shirt to Deeney when Zohore moves
