Sorry I just needed to see kids as off to London tomorrow until saturday.   Randolph - West Ham tried to renegotiate with us and wanted a loa  as they couldn't be sure with injury... woody s

@Lurker, @diggerlad07 @Smoggydownsouth and all the other ITK posters. Thank you for all the ITK info you guys share. Think i speak for everyone when i say it is much appreciated. Without it the l

Roberts is done. As someone has said, Ayala is on £25k a week. Don’t know what he’s been offered but I can’t believe it would be £5k. Randolph is gone, assume it’s West Ham.    5 more

hardly a utility player mate. He's barely got one good position nowadays, let alone multiple.

Was gonna say, he can't even play another role from his usual in central midfield, never mind another position entirely.

at this moment in time I would class McNair as our most saleable asset, not our most wanted sale but the one player I can see us getting an offer for who has no ties to the area and would bring in some funds.

McNair out pays for Roberts, i'd reluctantly get on board with that.

If Roberts isn't injury prone I'd jump at that. 

Creatively Paddy gives us nothing -  solid Championship players are easy to come by. 

Roberts has that little extra, star quality, that can often change a game on it's own. He's already won us 2 penalties since joining, if I remember rightly that's already twice as many as we've had since the start of the season.

Can’t see a Prem team coming in for McNair. And I can’t see a team paying over 6 million for him. He’s not been that good. 

?! he's probably our player of the season up to this point?! For the first few months of the season he was basically the only player likely to create something offensively for us.

I'd have to disagree with both parts of that statement. Paddy has been one of the few players running through walls for us this season, and some of his performances have been immense. Though I agree his penalty taking needs work!

I think most Championship managers would welcome McNair straight into their matchday 18s, and I think it would be difficult to replace his versatility and commitment. And while I agree he's not a Roberts or Ramirez-style onto-the-attack playmaker, I think he's one of the most important players in our youthful and inexperienced squad. I wouldn't let him go unless someone makes us an offer we can't refuse.

That’s not saying much though. I don’t think he has increased his value here.

Have any of our recent signings increased in value since they joined us?

Either way, it doesn't change Paddy's importance to our paper-thin and very youthful squad.

brum exposed our lack of real defenders last night. there goal was text book for them. get the only cb out wide against their best wide man. put one to the back post for their target man up against a 5ft 9in cm playing in defence. jukes easiest goal of the season.

if ayala was on the pitch with gibbo and fry, they wouldnt have had a sniff all game.

i was watching ry on the left and seen how uneasy he is using his left foot. he often turned back to his right foot when a nice ball down the line was on. its not good having him there. johnson was like the invisible man to. cant remember him being near fry all night. coulson will be back next game thankfully. hopefully with gibbo left side.

    • Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.
    • Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers. Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.
    • It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are.  If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him. Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.
    • I think you are reading and interpreting what you want to get angry about rather than what i actually said. I expect every manager to have his approval on all signings even Warnock, even though he wont be here in a years time. Peltier was signed as cover for Fisher who we knew was out for a long while, we absolutely needed him. He clearly can plug a gap, not ideal, but he did ok at LB. we absolutely needed another CB. McNair is useless in a back 4 but ok in a back 3. Like I say, I expect every manager to plan for their team and have their approval over the choice of an owner. As for Scott, we have no way of knowing how successful he will be, what his Job description is or how much autonomy he will have, you are peeing in the wind if you hazard an answer. Gibson has always been hands on,, i don’t see that changing sadly. Since 2006 the owners vision has been wrong more than right, as have his appointments. Don’t take that to mean I am ungrateful for his efforts, without him, we’d not have a club, but goodness me he is due a right decision. I know he is trying his utmost but is having to do so with an imbalanced squad. He does not sign players, that isn’t his job it is Gibson and Bausor that do a deal or walk away. They have tried hard to fix the final third with more pace, flair and finishing, unfortunately the defence has been holed as a result.    I am not suggesting Spence and Coulson were great players, but they are better than nothing. Are you suggesting Warnock prefers Jones as a LB to Coulson? He doesn’t, he is having to make do and mend.  We have no holding midfielder. Howson is doing a job but it is not his best position. He is not refusing to sign foreign left backs at all, you are spinning his comments. He said they haven’t found anyone that fits the bill after being unable to fund UK based LB’s. Why you interpret it as a refusal is odd when he had no say over Morsy and some other signings is beyond silly. Getting a player to agree to come knowing they are going to be mere cover, from abroad especially, in a pandemic too, when you have no money, will not be a doddle, it isn’t like a pic and mix at the cinema.    Get off his back and support his efforts for now, he is not trying to set us up to fail, he has the best record of any manager in the league, but that was with his mix of players, blame the players for their part in the poor performances too and the goals we concede. Warnock deserves some criticism but it needs to be for his failures, not those of others. You can rejoice his departure come May which isn’t long for you to wait. 
    • Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around. Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously. Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.
