West Bromwich Albion keep on Brunt and Dorrans as club confirms 10 departures

West Brom have kept on captain Chris Brunt and midfielder Graham Dorrans for another year but 10 players have left The Hawthorns including fans’ favourite Zoltan Gera.

Albion have exercised their one-year options on Brunt and Dorrans, who has completed a dramatic return to favour after appearing to be on his way out of the club.

But the Baggies have confirmed the departures of five players in addition to five men whose loans have expired.

Out-of-contract duo Gera and Steven Reid have not been offered new deals while the club have decided not to exercise their one-year option on Liam Ridgewell.

They have triggered a break clause in Diego Lugano’s contract after he failed to make an impact and decided against taking up their one-year option on Scott Allan.

Loanees Scott Sinclair, Morgan Amalfitano, Matej Vydra, Thievy Bifouma and Goran Popov have returned to their parent clubs.

The Baggies also expect Billy Jones to depart when his contract expires in June after the full-back rejected a new two-year deal.

Director of football administration Richard Garlick said: “Chris and Graham have given the club long and valued service and played big parts in getting the team over the line last season.

“We have had ongoing discussions with Billy’s representatives about a new contract since last October, when we offered him a new long-term deal with substantially-improved terms.

“Talks are continuing but they have proved fruitless so far as Billy has yet to put pen to paper.

“Zoltan and Steven have been terrific professionals during their many years with us. They have been a real credit to the football club, both on and off the field.

“We know that Zoltan is looking to find another club while Steven, who is keen to carry on playing but is also doing his coaching badges, is considering his options.

“Liam has made a key contribution during the past two-and-a-half years, which we thank him for. He has been a popular member of the dressing room and we wish him well as he looks for a new club.

“I would also like to thank Diego and our five loan signings for their efforts over the past 12 months.

“Scott Allan has found it difficult to break into the first team since arriving two-and-a-half years ago and we wish him well in his future career.”

do lallytap

Thats a start and no complaints from me for once.

Now, lets talk about who is coming in

ianchrisdavis

Glad Ridgewell is leaving, so basically we need a new defence, strikers and a new midfield. With no manager at the moment its going to be tight for time, especially after the world cup.

baggiebornandbred

for me the only one if keep is amalfitano i wouldnt have kept any of the others but the massive massive concern ive got now is we have 10 players to replave if we buy or loan them all that has too be at least 50-60m and we wont be spending that i have seen some good lads in the reserves, but how many will cut the premier league?

really am concerned we need a manager almost instantly and players coming in before the world cup, for me we might struggle because come june 12th the entire worlds eyes will be on brazil any player had a decent tournament his stock goes up 10m straight away

hope jp has something up his sleeve here

Matt M

I personally don't believe we'll need to spend that much money. I think we need 9 players. If we brought in around 3 domestic loans, 3 foreign or domestic free's and 3 money transfers with the right head coach it could revitalise the club.

Matt M

This is a very smart move by the club. I really didn't expect they'd release all those players but it's a wise move. Sad for to see Zolly and Reidy go but it had to happen for the good of the club. Really pleased there was a break clause in Lugano's contract as he just isn't a premier league player. So we now need 4 full backs, 1 centre back, 2 midfielders and 2 forwards. Free squad numbers 2, 4, 6, 8, 9 & 10 need filling. Exciting times ahead I hope. Boing boing!

CantelloRocket 78

No real surprises - although it does guarantee a busy period of transfer activity this Summer, otherwise we'll have a seriously depleted squad-

I wonder how much input has already been made in a very short period of time since Terry Burton turned up?

He may not have 'officially' started his job yet, but I have a strong suspicion he's been asked for a fair amount of advice already......

Albion4690

Refreshing to see a lot of the 'deadwood' being moved on, however it makes me a little bit nervous that we only have 3 recognised defenders and none of them are full backs.

Whoever takes over, they have got one hell of a job to do in rebuilding the Albion this summer. We need 5 defenders, 3 midfielders and 2 more forwards - and that is just to make sure we've got similar numbers in as last year. JP tends to get his manager selection right in regards to what we are looking to acheive, hopefully this summer is no different.

Exciting times. Bring in the new blood. Ha, ha Dolally , thought you'd be pleased, that your favourite players moving. Boing boing

Ain't we supposed to have a manager before anyone starts buying/selling the players , probably best to just give the job to Garlick and the accounts department as they appear to be running the shambles that it has become !

Cyril

Is this yammie yet another midnight oil-burning Wulfie ? We should be told.

gene o pittsburgh

Lots of work to do for Mr. Burton, 4 fullbacks needed straightaway.Glad we kept those two but think decision to let Jones getaway will prove a mistake

He hasn't gone yet Gene. You're making the mistake of believing that our wonderful press tell the truth.

Gene, be a bigger mistake to keep a player that wants away, don't you think?

You might be wrong there, when it was announced that he was leaving somebody posted that whoever had let his contract run out should be sacked. So apparently there is a way of forcing him to stay against his will. LOL.

Please Cr . no more m8. I just keep laffin. God don't let tnuC . please come on here ever again.

Cr please, no more m8

SurreyBaggie

Quite the clear out then. Promising - what with the recent rumours of JP being back on board I'm hoping for more investment and engagement in signings. I won't miss the loan signings and I only hope it points to us not replacing them with a load more.

Kev in Mallorca

Surrey

I really don't know what the problem is with loan signings?

Don't ask me what loans turned into permanent signing cause me memory's crap and can't be bothered to look it up but I'm sure there's some.

Lukaku wasn't too bad and I ay guna mention what fans would have said if we had signed Sinclair,Vydra or Popov permanently.

I know it's not ideal but we ay got the money of Man City to let signings rot in the reserves>

Adeu

1877wolf

With all the loan signings returning to their parent clubs, Billy Jones, Ridge well, Reid and Gera being released, how many of your regular starting 11 are now at the club? 5,6? Also rumours that Mulumbu will leave for a fee and George Thorn wants to stay at Derby.

Its going to have to be a very busy Summer or you will have reserve players starting Premier League games or at least on the bench? Changing too much too soon can make things worse. The wise think to do would be to improve the weak areas in your starting 11, left back, centre back, left wing and 2 decent strikers but with the way things are you will have to sign at least 9 players?

Mboy

Thank you for your concern. Left back - yes, but we're ok for centre backs (Olsson, Macauley and Dawson) and Chris Brunt is a very good footballer. You don't know a lot when it comes to the Albion, so go and play down your own end.

Thank you!

Baggiepip

Sorry MBoy I disagree - if this season has shown one thing, that is that all three are not good enough. We need a whole new back line.

The Real Bully Hoo.

I think there's something in both arguments. Olsson and MaCauley are both good players still but not getting any younger, the problem was at the end of the season they'd played too many games and could have done with a rest but due to our position couldn't be spared. I bet they'll both look much better at the beginning of next season.

euroboundbaggie

mBoy,sorry got to pull you on Dawson mate,he not good enough IMO.

CantelloRocket 78

1877-

so a dingle gets up at 5 a.m. to put on the Baggies site-

' The wise THINK to do...... '

Do you ever realise what a complete muppett you look like to us......??........ LOL..........

bob.williamsfindlay

Early to bed, early to rise certainly doesn't work for some people.

I'm touched by the concern expressed for our team, by 1877 but some of the comments are premature (wasn't sure if this was the right prefix or not ...), don't you think?

The loan players came in for a season, with only one being a regular. Likewise, apart from Ridgewell, most of the departing players had reduced roles.

The question of players getting to know each other is often raised by pundits, but with a new coach coming in there will be a level playing field.

The real backbone of the team remains in my opinion and I've not ruled out Jones staying either. We've missed a man with a real footballing brain at the centre of operations, let's hope Terry fulfils this role as well as I believe he can. Finally, Albion are already being linked to potential signings of merit, so no need to hit the panic button. The dark side should be more concerned about their own situation where yelps of 'back-to-back' promotion are already being heard. Premature appears to be a consistent theme among Dingles.

The Real Bully Hoo.

I saw that one as well Bob.

We have articles on here about how we'll be lucky to avoid hurtling down the leagues and going out of existence.

On the other side the only problem Wolves seem to have is that WHEN not if they get their back to back promotions it will all have come too quick.

Doesn't it make all you Baggies a bit jealous of their success?

capehill

its because he's got six fingers on his typing hand

The Real Bully Hoo.

No problem lads because whatever we do, we'll be doing it in the PL and despite the artist AKA as 1877's concern for our well being, what wouldn't he give to be able to say that (oh sorry I forgot, he said he prefers languishing in the lower reaches so we're all happy.)

CantelloRocket 78

Bully,

because our 'green-eyed' visitors post on here so early, I became curious and decided to glance at the 'dark side' to see if they were there-

I spotted one Wolves fan saying ' the problem is if we now get in the prem, and Kenny dumps us for Everton......'-

well he's been a Manager for nearly 20 years, and One 'arf claims he's never took a club higher than 9th in the Championship - but they're concerned he's now gonna set Merseyside ablaze in the top flight after steering wolves above Leyton Orient and Peterborough in the minnow-league -

that delusion just never leaves 'em.........

1877,

Talking about all our loan signings returning to their parent clubs, have your big earners returned yet. Somebody will come in for your better players too and you know what Mr. Morgan will do. Your club will start next season with mainly Divi 3 Double-Dropouts and have to find players that are willing to play hoof-ball.

I say, haven't Manchester City been biffed by F.F.P.D., mind how you go.

The char woman has done a wonderful job of spring cleaning our club. Gone is most of the ( Wouldn't and couldn't ) clutter of this season. The time has come for this figurative phenomenon to re-organize the old place and I can't wait.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

THEGREENMAN

Good to see the cull has been done now before the new man comes in. one less problem for him to sort out. Now Mr Peace let's hear that you have reduced the 50 applicants down to 7 and that by the end of next week you interview the final 3. Probably asking too much from a man who will only ever do things HIS WAY, but we can always dream that he has had a new personality implant.

Good to see that Pepe Mel had some influence on JP with Dorrans being kept on. Let's hope he continues the much improved form into next season.

euroboundbaggie

Just a shame that Morrison is staying.

CantelloRocket 78

I'm very pleased Morrison remains-

I often go in there after home games, you get some real bargains at 5 o' clock on a Saturday......

for me euro morrison has been poor this season and we know it but a season or two ago he was immense players have bad seasons look at rvp this season! morrison for me is a wide player not a centre mid im sure he wilk come up good next season

BBB I hope your right, because without Mulumbu we going to need him to be.

nice to see you taking a leaf out jps book 78, buying things cheap and past ther seel by date only good for the rubbish bin.

honestly im really happy we kept mulumbu as long as we have if we can keep him great but i thought he would have gone last year, the one positive of peace is im sure mulumbu will be a tasty payday when he does go

Baggiepip

Mulumbu - gone!

Morrison - headless chicken!

Cyril

Rocket, have you noticed how the 'Trolleys' have started to address each other to give the impression they're for real ?

THEGREENMAN

Morrison needs to hit the ground running next season or he could get a New Years present he doesn't want. Has been a good player in the past for us and has the ability to form a really good midfield along with Brunt/ Dorrans and Mulumbu or Yacob.

Jack the Hat

THEGREENMAN,

I like Morrison when he does the box to box bit but just lately he has been hanging back and that may be because of Mel's instruction who knows.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

Captain Mardon International

Exciting times await us. For me a new coach has to be appointed first, he can then hopefully transmit his philosophy and transfer wishlist.

In response to the wolfie above, we proved that we have strength in depth to keep us in the Premiership, with a struggle I will admit, but nevertheless we did it. Hopefully Jeremy Peace will realise the scale of what needs to be done and sort it quickly.

Albion til I die!

jonathan.willetts.3

Exactly what Pepe Mel said "we need 9 new players". I think it will be a season of loans and kids. What contract has Morrison got left, because he's been a bit lightweight this season, with too many poor games. It's a shame that Billy Jones looks like he's going, but that's how modern day professionals operate now, follow the money. Next season will be a "survive again" season, with a lot of re-building to do over the next couple of seasons. No short term answers here. BOING BOING

simmo54

IF the list is right somebody has started to get it right. Now lets look at what we have, what we need and get some decent blokes in. There will be quite a few out of contract that we could also pick up.

Best of luck to all those on the list who wore our blue and white striped shirt and thank you.

CantelloRocket 78

Simmo,

it's been mentioned that last year we used computer profiles and statistics to target possible signings, but now it looks like Terry Burton's judgement, and our previous widespread scouting system, are preferred as the way forward-

I await with great interest to what they come up with.....

simmo54

CR

Was the use of stats and customer profiles used before or after Dan Ashworth? If after it must have been to aid Garlick. Nice to get back to real basics again eh?

CantelloRocket 78

Simmo,

I think the article on here the other day suggested players like Lugano, Vydra, etc., were the result of 'computer analysis', so it seems to be a recently introduced system, that may now be replaced by Scouts actually watching players...

Jack the Hat

Cantello, Simmo,

If my memory serves me well Ashworth used both of the systems you mention, plus player choice " From the same price range " made by the Head-Coach.

who would we like to see signed then lads? i have always said snodgrass and martin olsson i also would love to see sam byram and alex cresswell from ipswich and leeds cant see them costing the world either would anybody have a punt on mccormack or rhodes? also i know its a lot slower but the italian leagues seem to full of one player wonders is their anyone from there we could attract now the clutters gone it will be exciting to see the signings

The Real Bully Hoo.

BBAB.

The trouble with Rhodes and McComack is that there has been interest in both and they would require a big fee for a Championship player which isn't a problem in itself but you're never sure if they can make the step up. Vydra was a good example of this.

I suppose that's what we've got Terry Burton in for to make these decisions. What we don't know as fans is if Dan's scouting network is still in place and if it is we can hope for some more unknown gems,

baggiebornandbred

perosnally id be sending my scouts to place far and wide the european market has become very expensive the italian league normally have a gem somewhere, id love to see some south american or african talent brought in up and coming football nations

CantelloRocket 78

BB&B,

I remember 'Inside Man' once saying that we had a network of up to 70 scouts spread over many countries - they may be employed by the club, or they may work individually in compiling info., then provide it when contacted by clubs, but I'm sure we could follow such a system again.

Cyril

Nothing too surprising in the list and I for one hope Liam Ridgewell gets fixed up quickly. He always gave his best and 100% for the team rather than just collect the cash as some have done. We have kept the nucleus of the squad so new purchases will know what to expect. Please, no more Anelkas, Odems, etc. Check the man's disposition as well as his playing position. The Sun says Berahino is coveted by Newcastle. That'll be interesting.

Jack the Hat

If true, lets hope they have the coveted money and add on cash they owe us for snaffling our kids, it would be payback time.

Rocket, the East Stand seats are a mite small for fatties of 26 stone so he'd need to pay for TWO seats. And most Baggies know it's cheaper to renew ON LINE, although if he's that big a Hawser Cable might be more appropriate.

CantelloRocket 78

that also immediately crossed my mind-

why would someone who spends every waking hour on the internet, brag that he's wasting his time and paying extra money to journey to the ticket office when he can do it instantly and cheaper online - especially for a seat that's already occupied by a genuine fan?......lol.

We're being linked with a Brazilian international striker from Valencia Goncalves, he's averaged more than a goal every other game for the last three seasons. He'd cost a bit but most Spanish clubs are hard up and fairly open to a deal.

We're also linked with a 24 year old Senegal CH Kouyate from Anderlecht who is 6'4".

Hello Do, it's Don't here, how's it go bro? As previously suggested, the exodus has begun, so agree on that one.

I know we won't be spending millions, but there maybe a bargain or two to be had. There had better be? or it could be another season of struggle.

You need help.

old rocking horse, Not half as much as you Trolls who are like flies round a jam pot after tasting the pooh of two crash seasons.

CantelloRocket 78

Capey,

I don't believe you need help - It looks to me like you're doin' just fine by yourself.....lol.

We're got the usual 'keyboard kowards', Jackettinio, Dolly Alien, and trolly boy europound havin' tea parties together at 3 a.m. each morning, puttin' their usual tripe on here, but it appears they really don't know how to deal with you - great entertainment to relieve the Summer break's boredom......;-)

Just read on a live feed that Arsenals number 2 Steve Bould is beeing courted and endorsed by Terry B. Now that would be great shout with two good links to a club of talented youngsters and a highly respected and talented coach from a football club that likes playing real football like us. Got to be better than Jones, Hoddle and others. Any thoughts folks?

CantelloRocket 78

GOSP,

Trinity newpapers are pushing the story about Steve Bould, but Coral's still have Dave Jones as 3-1 favourite for the Baggies job-

rumours are probably partly due to Terry Burton's link with both men.

Bould has been credited with success in organising Arsenal's defence, and touted as Wenger's successor, but I'd expect the Gunners to look for a high profile replacement instead-

Jones apparently came close to the Baggies job last time out, but would be unpopular with many fans, and hasn't been in the top flight for some time.

I can't even see a Bookies price for Bould yet, but a fiver on both men - one favourite, one complete outsider - could well end up puttin' money in yer pocket, one way or the other........

Cyril

Trinity News. Thank Gawd I buy the Stun ! They aren't interested in Baggies next manager unless it's Sir Alex, Wenger or Kenny Jackett.

euroboundbaggie

He would have to be Bould to take this job on .

Jack the Hat

eurobounder,

Are you after Jackett's top job on here?.

I see a couple of problems with Steve Bould. He could potentially be another Don Howe, great at organising the defence but not good to watch. He would also be kicking his heels waiting to get back to Arsenal. I don't know why I'm worrying as it's only paper claptrap anyway isn't t?

CantelloRocket 78

Bully,

to be honest mate, after mixed fortunes with relative 'newcomers' RDM and SC, and what's been seen by some as a 'failed' experiment with Pepe, I'd put me house on JP reverting to an experienced 'old hand'-

and if Derby miss out on promotion, your shout of McLaren sounds a genuine possibilty - especially as we've heard stories that Albion are planning to slightly delay naming an appointment......??

euroboundbaggie

So it look like a cheap and failed no1 or a cheap and untested no2, here we go again.

baggiebornandbred

euro,

in part i agree with you, having an untested manager is probably the biggest risk in the premier league, but steve clarke was untested and he took us to eighth,

some of these numbers twos have worked with the grestest minds in the world brendan rodgers was a no.2 at one time, sometimes a good number two is better than an average no.1, if we do get a high quality no.2 then he may bring in some high quality talent if JP spares some pounds that is

CantelloRocket 78

BB&B,

don't worry, europound is always talking No.2's.........

Cyril

Rocket, I'm getting to enjoy this !

euroboundbaggie

bbb! Yes he did but with Woys team,we all know what happened when he tried to do it his way.

Cyril

Euro, how many more times, Kenny Jackett will only leave if a BIGGER club than Wolves come in for him. You KNOW that can never be. RELAX.

I heard a rumour that Ciderman, Dolly Alien, (love that one Rocket), euro, Buzarseglo were drinking champagne until 3 am in a flat high up in Troll City. The FUN they had trying to type. I was asked to point out that accounts for the bad spelling, poor grammar and generally appalling saftness. (It was actually Spanish Cava, but Spanish Ray told them it was champagne and they believe everything he says. Not like US).

baggiebornandbred

now lads com'on, maybe these guys have been on the hippy crack with young saido! but surely they dont deserve this level of truth it too much for wolfie minds, seeing as they have been living in an illusion for the last 10 years

CantelloRocket 78

Cyril,

I guess we come from those generations that spent our time actually communicating face to face, meeting family and friends before, during, and after games, also having further discussions at other times with a beer in places like Supporters Clubs, etc., etc.- not to mention getting to know those REAL people, sitting in REAL seats next to us inside the ground-

I'd never even touched a computer until little more than 10 years ago, but sadly whole younger generations are growing up living in a 'virtual reality' world, playing games and competing with each other 24/7 in front of an electronic monitor, knowing they can hide behind the keyboard, pretending to be anyone they wish to be, and taunting good people - but face-to-face, they'd wet their pants and try to run away-

so if they want to play games on here, and the E&S are happy to allow it, I guess we have a right to amuse ourselves occasionally by 'toying' with 'em a little.....?

The Real Bully Hoo.

Cyril.

Rumour has it Barcelona will be after a new coach, I bet the bookies have Kenny pencilled in already but like you say he'd probably turn it down to stay at the mossivest club in the world.

Cyril , having six fingers on there typing didn't help

U.E.F.A. Manchester City knuckle rapper in a nut shell:

MANCHESTER CITY have been hit with a whopping £49m fine for massively breaching UEFA's Financial Fair Play rules.

UEFA have ruled that £32m of the fine will be handed back if City comply with the spending controls.

They also lose £8m of their Champions League income from last season - with the same amount slashed for the new campaign.

The Premier League champions have been told they cannot spend more than £49m this summer - not including player sales.

Manuel Pellegrini will only be able to name a 21-man squad - instead of the normal 25 - for Europe's elite competition.

Ouch.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

Quinton Baggie

JTH - The fine for them was no more than a round of drinks...imo they should have been docked points in the PL giving Liverpool the title,

Jack the Hat

Quinton Baggie,

£17m if they don't break any F.F.P.D. rules next season also being deducted £4m from their Champions league payments for this season and £4m for next is a smack on the chops £25m just for breaking a few rules, it isn't actually a parking fine is it mate?. They will also be four players light in their squad for that competition. F.F.P.D. mean business.

Hope wolves know what is required to fend off the wrath of F.F.P.D.

BOING~~~~BOING~~~~J♣H.

THEGREENMAN

Steve Bould, albeit paper rumours , surely wouldn't want to swap a high profile No 2 position at Arsenal for a risky job with us. We did well with Steve Clarke because of all the experienced managers he worked with previously. Bould hasn't been Wengers' RH man for long so would be a tremendous gamble in my opinion. While it is obvious our defence does need a lot of work to bring in a coach whose expertise is confined to defensive strength would be a big mistake. An experienced coach like Steve Maclaren wouldn't be a bad call at all, assuming Derby don't gain promotion. The sooner JP sorts out his final three candidates the better.

Quinton Baggie

I am hoping JP has sat up and taken notice that our squad is lacking....looks like we may have a busy pre-season in building a better squad...i would expect the manager to be in place before June 1st which is the renewal deadline for season tickets...I seen Tin Sherwood on Goals on Sunday and to be honest he was rather refreshing and 5/1 to be our next manager.

THEGREENMAN

Sherwood did a good job at Spurs having to use several players who didn't perform for AVB even though he had spent a lot of money on them. The fact that Spurs told Sherwood he wasn't going to be involved next season, with several games still left to play, cost them a higher position in the league. I think the players and Sherwood himself switched off a bit. He talks a good game and in time will be a top manager but I think he is a bit headstrong for us. I can't see him and JP getting on.

capehill

QB and The green man, im sure that Sherwood is of to Brighton, apparently one of his closest friends runs the club??.

CantelloRocket 78

I still feel Sherwood will be linked to Forest-

it just feels so right..........

Quinton Baggie

Rocket I a sure there is a pun somewhere lol...we need to settle the ship now.

capehill

Weve also been linked to Fraser Campbell

THEGREENMAN

cape hill

Depends whether Sherwood wants to take the step down a division after his brief management in the top flight. Wouldn't surprise me if he waited for developments at West Ham and Southampton. Big Sam could be out of a job by the end of this week. Who knows ? It's all guess work at the moment and I wasn't for a minute suggesting we would be interested in Big Sam.!!

capehill

TGM no not big Sam please, Cr I see what u did there. boing boing

PS reference needing help, do I go on there site and slag there club off , nope, but they come on here gobbing off, and when we get back at them , they start crying, oh capey , I bet your a bully, in the play ground etc lol,lol, don't like it up em. far from it mate, I could and will ridicule, belittle them and stand up for myself all day, but not at 2 and 3 am , bring it on. ( this is bait , lets see howlong before.............

I see our local James Turner st resident is still here.

did you see further up, where eurotrolly boy said to Mboy 'sorry, I'm gonna have to pull you.......'?

In the same post he said about Dawson, 'he not good enough,' that's how the red indians used to talk in films. Could be the one out of Village People. Altogether now YMCA,

Still think Scott Sinclair is a top quality player who didn't get enough time to shine. Done a lot at Swansea, enough to get a top club like Man City to spend the cash.. Vydra and Thievy looked lively but hardly got game time. Dawson will come good. Still young but i'd play him over the age'ing centre backs. Last few games I've seen him play he read the game well. Definitely would have kept Amalfitano but maybe the new boss who comes in may go back for him. Berahino since his new contract has been useless. It's like we're playing him and hoping he shows quality so he doesn't look like a wasted contract. Billy Jones turning down 40k a week from a team who have made his career? Someones developed an Ego! Craig Gardener in on a free for cover. He's versatile and can sit in at right back or across the midfield. Sam Byram from Derby if they fail to get promoted. I can see Sessegnon having a good season next year. Just needs a bit more confidance infront of goal.. Moyes for next manager. Unrealistic but if not i'd like Laudrupp. Played fast attacking football at Swansea which would suit us. Hernandez from United on loan??

10-30 I shall be in the ticket office, I will be wearing my ' we know what we was' top, please pop along and say hello, no reason why you can't as your all pensioners and your properly going to post office anyway.
