|Does exactly what it says on the tin - the forum for football-related discussion.
**** him right off. Don't want that poor excuse of a human being anywhere near our Club.
If it's ex decent defenders who would be looking into coaching the defensive side of things then give Rio a bell if we must, but not this lowlife Chelsea loving prick.
To be fair warp Shaqiri did.
Though he may be regretting that now.
Sorry Colours, not saying I want him, merely illustrating that everyone keeps banging on about signing him for his ability to 'bring on our youngsters', if that's what they want hire him as a coach not as an over priced player.
I was being a smart @rse!
of course some may, but not in a "he'd rather go to stoke, get real" way
If he stood in the way of a number 26 bus however ....
This just about sums our lot up. Option to buy a top CH for half a Zaza loan fee and turn it down for the sake of £250k. Meanwhile, we go out and spend £8m on a player who albeit should turn out decent, is about 10 years his senior so will need replacing in another couple of years.

The last paragraph about Chris Sutton - typical !
In (first choice/second choice/third choice)
Adrian/Randolph (would prefer Randolph to leave but i don't think Adrian would want to be a backup keeper)
Sakho/Carroll (which ever one we can ship out - keep one though)
that would be a solid window
lets not judge a player whos done alright in his first season coming from a foreign league.....
I actually rate him higher than Snodgrass but i think the owners would sell him if we got offers of 10m+ for him
Plus we wouldn't get half of our money back from Snodgrass
Even though I'm one of the ones who would like us to sign Batshuayi, he has been very poor today. Would not sign without a loan first.
It's a shame sakho is so often injured, he is the perfect typw of striker for us. Would love to see Chicarito or Giroud here
How would you like to see us line up next season?
Formation, players and manager? Realistic is more interesting, so no Neymar suggestions (you're not David Sullivan)
For me I'd like to to see 3-4-1-2
---------------- Pickford -------------
------ kouyate Reid ogbonna---
Trippier obiang nordveit masuaku
---------------- Lanzini ---------------
------- batshuayi Hernandez -----
Pickford could be our keeper for the next ten years.
I love kouyate at RCB of a three, power pace and can bring then ball out and run with it if needs be.
Trippier is an excellent attacking full back and I think would make a great wing back for us.
We could improve at CDM but realistically won't have any money left.
Lanzini has a free role to find space, run at defences or thread balls through.
Batshuayi has power and pace to counter attach, Hernandez just knows where the goal is.
Realistic spend of:
Pickford - £10m
Trippier - £16m
Bats - £30m
Chicarito - £20
£76m gross spend.
Sell sakho, Valencia and feghouli for £25m.
Net spend of £51m.
Send back loans.
Keep Carrol for plan B... something we haven't had for years.
Promote Burke and Cullen.
Manager would remain as Bilic. He obviously hasn't lost the dressing room yet. One good season and one poor season. 2017/18 is the decider for him.
