Rumour Utd looking at Pickford if they lose degea. Well if Sam is still here in the summer he will probably sell him.
Allardyce is a Championship manager at best, and is clearly out of his depth with us.
If we are going to spend big in the summer, then we need to do it on a manager. One with a history of winning, and who has a history of winning.
Not one who has a history of keeping teams up, and believes a draw is a good result.

Who could blame PIckford for moving to a club that wins trophies and regularly plays Champions League football?


2.) 05 Feb 2018 06:41:33
We will probably lose Lookman, Davies and Vlasic as well. Especially if SA stays.


3.) 05 Feb 2018 11:25:07
Vlasic can go along with B.S.
Pair of charlatans.


4.) 05 Feb 2018 19:34:18
Don't get Vlasic know he's young but light years behind lookman and defensively exposes our fullbacks.


5.) 06 Feb 2018 14:59:37
Vlasic exposes the fullbacks because he isn't a winger, he plays central and that is why he drifts inside all the time. The lad has talent but again is being mismanaged.


 

 

15 Aug 2017 23:38:02
Sigurdsson, Rooney, Keane, Klassen, Pickford and Ramirez so far. How can anybody complain about any of that. A striker and a centre back now would finish it off nicely. Oh and don't forget we have Coleman and Bolasie coming back. 👍👍.

Woburnblue

1.) 16 Aug 2017 07:28:42
It's been a really good window for me WB. Even if we don't get another striker, I think the squad looks good.


2.) 16 Aug 2017 07:35:35
It nicely put there Woburnblue.


3.) 16 Aug 2017 14:32:02
Need a striker without a shadow of doubt, at the moment we can cope with Williams and Keane in the backline, but for me a striker is a must.


 

 

15 Aug 2017 20:14:51
Yes Gareth Barry has been a good player for the club. But he is getting too slow now, and in an area of the pitch where you need pace he is getting found out. Hence the bookings. I wish him all the best at West Brom, but him leaving opens the door for someone else.

Woburnblue

1.) 15 Aug 2017 21:16:23
You should probably study his career history and realise he was always liable to a bunch of bookings and a suspension most seasons. It was his game to break it up anyway he could. Being slower only made the fouls a bit more obvious ;) Good luck Gareth Barry, I wasnt keen but I remember a Villa fan saying that only fans who see him week in week out, get what he was all about. Now go and smash Giggs and put that yellow card record out of sight.


2.) 15 Aug 2017 21:27:18
Finally we have our man! Sad to see GB go, I would have liked him to stay for another season, quality - but Gyfi is pure class. just need some bolstering up front now and maybe the left sided defender - but all in all a very good transfer window! Happy days.


3.) 15 Aug 2017 21:34:03
An area of the pitch you need pace? For real? His job is, and always was, to break up the flow of opposition midfield, stop their forward breaks and keep our line steady. He's a defensive enforcer in my view, someone who always puts his body on the line to make the defence job a little easier. Yes he gets a lot of bookings but because he is brave in any situation and knows the tactical advantage of when committing a foul is more of a benefit to the team. I think he would have been a real asset for us in the last half hour of any game where we are under pressure and need to stop such attacking threats. I wil miss him and wish him nothing but the best at West Brom.


4.) 15 Aug 2017 21:57:44
Pace is a quality worth having regardless of your position on the pitch. Having pace when trying to beat players to the ball and break up play is certainly worthwhile. I'd like to have kept him - but it was right to let him go and play games. Good luck GB!


5.) 15 Aug 2017 22:23:03
Anyone saying pace isn't important clearly didn't see the Goodison derby last year. We were on top until Jimmy Mc went off but Gareth B couldn't deal with the pace.

Good luck to him and thanks very much.
But time to move on.


6.) 15 Aug 2017 22:57:58
Thanks Dave, it would appear sentiment is ruling people's heads at the minute. As I said good player in his time but time catches up with us all, and now was Gareth's time.


7.) 16 Aug 2017 05:53:00
Agree Woburn.
At the match you constantly hear people having a go at him because of lack of pace. But as soon as he is moving the sentiment starts.

Alex Ferguson - and dare I say the reds teams of the eighties knew when to move people on before their performance dipped.
For me Gaz Baz could have gone 12 months ago.

Model pro, very respectful other two others I could mention - but we are aiming higher now.

COYB.


 

 

11 Aug 2017 23:31:05
Don't be surprised if EFC have a go for Leeds Chris Woods. Big lad who can hold the ball up and is not to shabby in the air.
Just saying is all.

Woburnblue

1.) 12 Aug 2017 00:31:37
Height of ambition there.


2.) 12 Aug 2017 07:16:05
Worcester why doesn't it show ambition just because he is from a championship team doesn't mean he wouldn't be a good signing let's have a look Lescott Cahill jags lookman all bought from lower leagues and have turned out ok in my eyes if Walsh and koeman think he can do a job that's fine by me and as for showing ambition I think we are showing more ambition now than at any point since the 80's remember it's not all about fee size or where the player cones from.


3.) 12 Aug 2017 08:20:01
Bluey u forgot Coleman in that.


4.) 12 Aug 2017 08:46:07
Perhaps we are the unknown Premiership club that bid for him 🤷🏻‍♂️.


5.) 12 Aug 2017 09:08:26
He fits the bill but was kinda hoping we'd get kalinic.


6.) 12 Aug 2017 10:23:12
He is a very good player would love Woods he is strong, hard working and know where the goal is.


7.) 12 Aug 2017 11:04:02
shakey good shout with Coleman forgot to add him in.


8.) 12 Aug 2017 11:30:49
Kalinic struggled at Blackburn, Woods would be worth a punt. Big and strong, holds ball up, decent in the air and most importantly, gets the ball in the net.


9.) 12 Aug 2017 12:05:30
Leading goal scorer in the championship last year, hardly see how it lacks ambition signing him.


10.) 13 Aug 2017 00:23:25
He is not premier league quality at all. i'm not surprised you forget this because he was pathetic when he had his chance at both West Brom and Leicester. He is another Jordan Rhodes, great in the Championship but will not succeed in the top division. If anybody honestly wants to say they think he is an adequate replacement for Lukaku then i'm baffled. I think far too many on here just want us to spend for the sake of it, and a select few just like to argue against any point made because you like the drama. I maintain my stance that signing players of the quality of Woods is something that would see us move backwards in the league!


11.) 13 Aug 2017 11:10:17
i think people have to realise that we have apparently been chasing a striker since we sold the belgian and while we have been linked with a few people the season has begun but we are no closer to one. altho we have targeted kalinic who is about to say no according to reports, i mean really no one sounded him out before approaching him, so it is probs the same for welbeck or anyone else we may be attempting to sign, no matter how positive you try to be this is a bad position to be in with less of the window remaining each day. it is kind of going back to the moyes era of transfers he couldn't sign a quality striker either. good defensive start yesterday good in the middle as usual, we need a striker the quality we bring into this position could define our season cause we looked good yesterday, albeit we weren't great in attack. people are right to be negative about a striker coming from the lower league cause one from the prem or europe could propel us higher in the table, imo, we have a striker in the u23 who's better than this guy your talking about, so why buy him. after all the links and all the waiting and hope of good quality strikers he is a bit of an anti climax for sure no matter how good he is or isn't.


 

 

07 May 2017 22:51:49
Any great team needs a strong spine. Goalkeeper, centre half, strong number 10 and a striker. This is what we need to target, not 9 or 10. But 4 maybe 5 if you want to replace both centre halves. Get this and you have the base to build around it. We have Baines, Coleman (when recovered) . Gana, Scneiderlin and Davies in midfield. Think Lookman will feature more next season so there's six. Bring in a new spine and we have the makings of a very strong team.

Woburnblue

1.) 07 May 2017 23:04:40
More or less what I said in a post on the banter page Woburnblue. Strengthen those 4 positions and we will be a force to be reckoned with.


2.) 08 May 2017 01:30:00
Be nice to see any of Keane, Van Dyke, Koulibaly, Sigurdson, Willan Jose, Butland, Pickford, Trippier and Ghezzal at the club. Not all together, but a couple from that list.


3.) 08 May 2017 07:50:14
If Lukaku and Barkley go, we will need the number 10 and number 9 positions filling. Whilst I agree totally about the spine bit and all the points you make, I would add that if those 2 leave, we will lose our top 2 goalscorers. We will also be losing the 2 players with most assists. So we really need to find out asap what Barkley's plan actually is. We also need to make a decision on Lukaku and let him know that under no circumstances is he leaving the club until a replacement is sorted. Same goes for Barkley if he is not signing a new deal. Then we need to get the replacement in ASAP! All the good work done this season needs to be a foundation for next. My fear is the club may suffer unless plans are in place over the next few weeks. Of course as much as Lukaku wants to leave, he still has 2 years contract and most clubs will only sell a player on with 12 months left. It sometimes causes problems keeping an unhappy player (Berahino for example) but I would guess Barkley will be sold quickly because he only has 1 year left. if he does not sign in the next few weeks. Lukaku may prove to be a more drawn out saga. That's my feelings anyway.


4.) 08 May 2017 08:20:36
Lukaku= willian jose, dolberg, possibly that Villarreal striker.

Barkley=gylfi, klassen

Then a gk=pickford or any of the 100 others linked

2 cb=keane, van dijk

Cm=tielemans

Winger= grey or ghezzel.


5.) 08 May 2017 09:02:34
Berkshireblue2, if we were to buy the cheapest options from your list, circa £25 million each that would be £150 million. Add to that you want VVD also so that's £200 million. Naturally it would mean replacing Lukaku and Ross who would get us £100 million at least. So realistically we would still have to spen £100 million. I can't see that happening despite our new spending power. I have to say though, your list is very exciting and what a summer that would be.


6.) 08 May 2017 11:58:23
Dont forget we already have a small squad compared to others around the top 7 (forget 6 now) . We will also likely lose McCarthy, McGeady, Kone and Valencia plus obviously Lennon for some time. wouldn't be surprised to see Jags move on, Mirallas and maybe even Barry.

So an already small squad needs 8 replacements just to stand still. Add to that losing Rom and Barkley and at least one of our keepers and its 11 to stand still with squad size.

For me, Butland, Keane, VVD, Tielamns, Gylfi, Klaasen, and 3 strikers - don't know enough about them to say who. Would also love Redmond to give us some width / pace and a couple more youngsters.

I think the cash is there - we had some spare last year - its just how much we can spend with FFP. Exciting and interesting times regardless.

I really want Silva to succeed, but he made a big mistake tonight. Cups are the only competitions we have a chance in, and felt we just threw it away tonight. Should have played our strongest eleven from the start. Though roughly pissed off right now.

{Ed025's Note - absolutely woburn, they let us down tonight in what was our best chance of success i believe, mind you its not like they let us down all the time is it?... oh yes it is...gutted..

Why could he not play the same 11 that won at the weekend? A huge opportunity for a final or at least a semi final gone. A great chance to keep a settled side and let them grow in confidence. How sad.

Reality check time.
We were never going to win the league, and would be happy if we at least reached a cup final.
So why all the gloom and doom?
This team when at full strength is a cup team at the moment. Nobody can predict the future, but surely we are moving to a better era than we have had for the last twenty odd years.
For anyone who may have missed it our under 23s beat Spurs 6-0. And our under 18s beat Man City. There's where our future lies.
Be patient, we are playing good football, and with a little luck the results will come.
Might even make a cup final.

3.) 25 Sep 2018 16:18:33
Exactly Woburn it was never going to be flick a switch and we are up there competing on all fronts, it’s about laying out the plans for the future and improving the current situation!
Firstly Bill did his part kept us stable when at times we could easily have become like other sides and ended up relegated.

Even Moyes bought some stability on his tight budgets and moved us from relegation candidates to a team challenging for European football just hit his ceiling in what he could deliver.

Bill delivers FM and we have investment, new stadium becoming a reality, better sponsorship shirt deals finch farm etc.
FM has seen to it that we have finances for new players
That we now have a director of football for player recruitment negotiations
We have a head coach now who needs to bed in and have the players adapt to his football.

And with all that we’ve remained as probably the one team that is head and shoulders above the rest in the charitable support EITC brings to those in need
So let’s not be negative let’s show our support and enjoy this journey, we will hit some bumps in the road but things are on the up
NOW COYB!

While I love all the positivity at the moment their is still a big issue with our defence.
Conceding five goals in three games is not good, and is something we have to deal with quickly. We could and should be sitting on nine points now.
We are never going to win the league with this team. But if we sort out the defence then a cup is well within our grasp.
Hopefully the new players we have bought will sort this out. Would love another trip to Wembley.

Woburnblue

1.) 26 Aug 2018 11:49:48
We are back at the level of a couple of seasons ago. When we used to draw too many games that we should have won. Mina and Zouma are yet to play any time so that is one obvious area. Also we have the left back cover sorted now and in fact Baines might not be number one now? So the start we have had is encouraging. The league is a marathon not a sprint and cup games are a bit away (if we can overcome Rotheram) . so on the positive side of things the club has certainly made progress but is suffering a bit from injuries and suspensions now. Luck has not been good so far. but we sis just behind the top few after 3 games. That is progress on last season.

{Ed002's Note - It is a surprise that Zouma has yet to be used - Mina there are clear reasons.}


2.) 26 Aug 2018 13:17:11
You have to put in perspective that we've had two of those three games with 10 men.

Additionally, they will still be getting used to Silvas system, zonal marking and new players yet to come in.

The new players have only been at the club for two weeks and will be even further behind.

I'd judge us more in two to three months time, maybe even more so in January.


3.) 26 Aug 2018 13:36:16
3 of the 5 goals were conceded whilst down to 10 men.
Bournemouth always claw their way back, regardless who they play.
We will improve at the back with the addition of Zouma and Mina so nothing to panic about yet.
Zonal marking should be the norm for the players once we're a couple of months in.
All in all we have made progress.


4.) 26 Aug 2018 14:12:48
It certainly is a surprise about Zouma. I would bow to their greater knowledge but why bring in a lad on loan and not play him. Smit666 again I bow to greater knowledge but prefer man marking, maybe not in tune with the 'modern' thinking but nevertheless works for me. It is refreshing after last season but there are an awful lot of similarities with the Martinez era. The mistakes were there for all to see from Bainsie yesterday but in reality they have always been there its just that his attacking prowess, free kicks and penalties always masked his frailties as a defender, hence why others were always in front of him at International level. Coleman likewise on the other flank, both are wingbacks more than fullbacks, Coleman is ahead because of his relative pace and gnashing of teeth.


5.) 26 Aug 2018 14:47:54
Zonal or man marking, I don't mind as long as we have the players playing who can play the style Silva wants.
It's Silvas plan, get the attacking right then work on defence.
Allardyce, get the defending right and then defend some more.


6.) 26 Aug 2018 19:25:31
I don't have any issues with the back 4 that started the last 3 matches I actually think Silva looked at who performed in preseason and selected the players he thought where the best. Holgate came in for Jags and played okay with Keane so deserved another chance to show what he can do Zouma replaced Keane (hope he has a speedy recovery) so I expect Holgate and Zouma to be the next CB paring Mina will get his change when he is ready. Drawing games while down to 10 men surely must be a seen as a bonus even if we were in a leading position at the time. Far too many positives at the moment to worry about what may or may not happen. The future looks very bright indeed.


 

 

11 Aug 2018 20:00:38
Can we get off Keanes back. I personally think he had a good game, and you could hardly blame him for the second. The guy had all day to make the cross and Keane was marking two in the middle. If you want to blame anyone then blame the midfielders for not blocking the cross in the first place.

Woburnblue

1.) 11 Aug 2018 20:03:57
Schneiderlin should have done more so that goal was also on him. I lost count of the number of times Keane played the ball straight out for a throw though. Thought Holgate looked far more assured than Keane.

I thought both Davies and Keane played well today. Our main weakness is up front. We should have been at least two up by half time. Theo missed a great chance when put through by Davies, and DCL should have just squared the ball to Richarlson for a tap in.

Baffling. Surely we have to give the man at least one full season before we start wanting his head. Continuity is the key, and patience the name of the game. So let's be patient and allow the man some time.
