Bates, Murphy, Luongo were all signed when Bullen was in Caretaker charge I believe?

I will say they were Bruce era signings.

 

Not sure Bruce or Bullen had much say in it to be honest.

Luongo has been a nightmare signing.

 

The brief Bruce era signings were all really a disaster , some through no fault of their own:

 

Bates - never played and vanished

Harris - Poor

Borner - Poor aside from first 2 months

Luongo - crocked

Iorfa - great player but crocked

Murphy - a good loan signing.

 

 

Add in the recontracting of Westwood in particular on big money, it was a very poor outcome from those decisions.

 

 

The amount of spaffin on here over luongo reached ridiculous levels..never understood it..and Bruce was massivly overated n all while were at it

What a crap player Harris was. So pleased he has been released. 

He lost confidence massively in his time here.  I agree that by last season his form was absolutely dreadful.

Not sure about Iorfa, he just had a really bad injury up until which he was always available. Different with luongo who was just always in and out because of small injuries. I think the latter is more of a sign of weakness tbh. 

 

Luongo never seemed to be injured at QPR.

He came to us and after a fairly decent start picked up an injury, then if I remember correctly Monk made a statement along the lines of "he is not quite ready yet but is really keen to play so I've picked him". He immediately got injured again and has been injured off and on ever since.

You can hardly say that bringing back Westwood into the team was a poor outcome.....he single handedly kept us up remember

I think Luongo will stand out at this level but he’s one of the players I think we’ll struggle to hold on to TBH?

I think because of his injuries even if he gets fit teams would be wary of signing him in the summer. If he can get and stay fit I assume we’ll have him until Jan when he will be off for an undoubtedly tiny fee. If he remains injured his wages will just stay on our books until he’s out of contract as per Abdi.

Which team would take a punt on a player with such a poor injury record?

 

We’re stuck with him.

Ironically the only team who would take that gamble, is us!

Given your names Westfield, when it comes to to health matters, you probably know more than me? 🤣

Bringing back into team under Bruce-  yes a good decision

 

Giving him a bumper new 2 yr deal the summer after season finished, despite being skint - terrible decision.
