Glad he see's that and well done for admitting that he really did have a poor season.

I remember when he got his one and only goal so early in the season I though great he is going to contribute so much, but little did we know and it was a shame to see the effect it had on Brunnners!

We all knew what we were getting with Flint. He's an average centre back who usually makes himself worth it by popping up with nearly double figures in goals. 

I'd sell but his value won't be great. He's getting on and he will be on a good contract to.

Hopefully with a more attacking style of play his goal return comes back next season.

We're trying to offload for peanuts because we made so many signings recently that we overpaid for and are currently overpaying.  It's going to be a struggle to get rid of a lot of them so being prepared to let them go cheaply is one way of trying to encourage prospective buyers.  I reckon we'll end up paying the wages of some players we sell, if we end up selling them at all that is.

Really we could do with pulis taking over an upper mid table championship team so we can flog off some of our *** to him. He’d have ‘rudy’ and ‘flinty’ I think.

Why those that authorised the purchases are still in a job I don't know. They are clearly unfit for the job.

Maybe it’s the one person that can’t be sacked who’s at fault?

honestly there’s literally no other explanation.

Most of those we desperately wan rid of only have one year left on their contracts apart from Braithwaite. This means we cant demand much for them but also means we will soon be rid of them as well.

It has all the hallmarks of the start of the Mowbray era, we were stuck with the Strachan buys who were overpaid and not contributing enough on the pitch. 

It feels like we need to shift half of the current squad before we start again, I think Woodgate is the new Mowbray who'll be used as the fall guy while the club rebalance the books. 

You wonder if we actually learnt anything from the Strachan era.

Britts DR Congo out of AFCON. Lost on pens. Britt did not take one as he was subbed off at ET. 26 days left before Luton so enough time I hope for him to rest up and be involved.

Did Britt have holidays before afcon or is he still due to be away?

He posted lots of holiday pics so I would guess he did go away already yeah.

    • @Robin Johnson. Can I make a suggestion. Your views on Bolasie are very well known. I and all our fans have been in a similar situation to you where we either sign someone we do not want or sell someone we feel is worth keeping. However, if he signs, can I advise you just see how it goes and we can discuss the pros and cons of his impact at end of season? At the moment you are simply repeating the reasons you are not a fan of the bloke and those reasons are fully known to us all. I say this more for your sake than other posters.
    • If Bolasie had been playing for Everton’s u23’s he could come straight in. No one is denying he’s a decent signing, but if he’s not fit to start and make an instant i pace then I’d rather we looked elsewhere. It does reek of desperation. Hope he proves me wrong!
    • We all get Robin Johnson doesn't like Bolasie, there's nothing new to discuss around that. Hopefully Bolasie proves him wrong, and I'm sure he'd admit it, but I'm not overly hopeful myself.
    • 12:30 KO and an away game to boot...    
    • Mad if I don’t know he is a decent Championship player? Hardly worth biting to this outrageous comment. Lets be clear, on all known knowledge of this guy, his 21 games in the Championship with Villa he hardly covered himself in glory. Dig a bit, the general consensus of his time was he played 2 decent games, scoring 2 goals. So moving on by 2 years you believe he is decent? Comical. What I see is a hope and a prayer from posters believing this guy can do a job for us. Desperation personified.
