  1. On the topic of Braithwaite... has anyone watched the training video uploaded today, know its only small clips but he looks a couple of levels above anyone else. If only we could facilitate keeping him somehow, as he really has the talent when playing in a good footballing side.
  2. A canny bit I would imagine, he had it just about every contract he’s ever had. If you think how much some of the staff are on working at the club and picture with even a small % of the Traore fee. Its not even just that supposed clause, its his wages. Looking back how effective was he for what we were paying for him. Shocking.
  3. The buzzwords have been really clear from the social media side - so many beyond obvious instagram posts about ‘pass and move’, ‘keeping possession’ and overall sensationalism around this ‘new’ direction the club is going in. You know what is really shocking, the cut Pulis will of took home from player sales could of avoided them redundancies totally. I’ll forever scratch my head in what Gibson was thinking getting conman Pulis in and sanctioning off on his signings, most of which are now inept to the ‘new direction’ e.g Flint. Was it a last desperate gamble at winning the playoffs??
  4. This may of been posted elsewhere but i just got an email through asking why i haven’t renewed yet from the club. Not sure if this is a regular thing or not but is this a sign of the club finally recognising the unhappiness a***st the supporter base?
  5. £6m and £3.5m in the prem are very low amounts really. Also we made hella profit on players sold after we got relegated so I think it's a little bit churlish to isolate these two transfers and try to throw them back in the face. Gestede without the injuries would probably have been worth the money tbh.. can't predict injuries. McNair remains a prospect in fairness to him, and could yet prove to be a good deal - if we sold him today, we'd probably get our £5m back. Retrospectively now we are pushing the cut the budget lines and that we need to reduce the outgoings - they are truly awful, awful business. Gestede is truly a poor footballer and the wage packages we offer are beyond belief, as a fan that follows the team closely its heartbreaking to see how we’ve spent so much money on dross. Fletcher - wage and price inflated and lacks slightest bit of value. McNair - looks petrified when ever he plays, came from Man U product line But can’t get a game at RB over playing a CB there. How many times can we say ‘oh he’s just adjusting’ Britt - £15million - Forrest must of been laughing all the way to the bank. Saville - long way to go for him, but we said the same about Howson and he’s been awfully underwhelming. Flint - so poor with the ball at his feet and its painful to see him slow moves from the back because of his inability to play out and be composed on the ball. This is very critical i’ll admit but in the current situation its hard not to be - but as a season ticket holder i’m concerned about current proceedings, we’ve simply been awful in the recruitment department and we are really starting to suffer from these short comings. Does our current targets fill you with confidence going forward?
  6. Its really crazy that we paid around £6 million for Gestede plus the wages he’s been on for the past two years. We also paid £3.5 million for Guedioura. £5 million for McNair. Really doesn't install much faith thinking back to all this business we’ve done. I genuinely couldn’t think of anything worse than having Pulis in a DOF type role.
  7. Exactly this, hard to see any different reason. Obviously he takes flak for our recruitment team being totally inept but I've seen nearly every game this season and he's useless - afraid, doesn't offer anything positive, and lacks any drive to do better. IMO anyway. Some might call this harsh or pre-emptively judging, but the large moan when he comes on signifies that people that watch football each weekend know he ain't up to much. People mention Jonny H, who's form has picked up in some key games, but he still goes missing every 2 games. So if Saville ends up like him and we've coughed up 7m in Jan for him I'd be pressing the panic button and trying anyway we can to get out of that deal.
  8. I got to the Nottingham at home game really early and I found it weird Wing was in training kit doing sprints the length of the pitch over and over with just a coach not sure who it was. It looked like fitness tests found it abit weird it was going on pre match.
  9. Should probably clear up what i meant - not to say he's a diver, he's obviously a strong forward but he just seems to end up on the deck alot. Which whenever we do get second balls doesn't really help contribute to the next phase of play or even winning the ball back if he loses the aerial battle.
  10. It isn't moaning. This is a match thread and we're commenting on the game, a game in which Hugill has massively underperformed and thrown himself to the ground at every given chance.
  11. Have to agree, Hugill is so poor. Makes me think how West Ham even thought about buying him but then Moyes works in mysterious ways.
  12. So obvious they are targeting Friend here, Fry has been immense thankfully on that side
  13. This exactly. Most forget he was given chances last season and looked absolutely rubbish to put it nicely. Admittedly I went to Hartlepool and he looked bright but keeping in mind the level of the opposition I'll reserve any judgement. Best case scenario we sell him back to Monk at B'ham
