Given Max Meyer's record salary for this club, it's clear that his transfer wasn't inspired. Do you know how much he's on per week?

It was a big gamble to buy a player who used to be a promosing attacker, but had played the last 1 and a half year as central midfielder, with medium to no success. Now he's not that good up front either because of the lack of continuity.

Clearly you donít. Unless, of course, you believed the bs in the mail which was shot down quite quickly. In case youíre wondering, itís £80k per week & not the £170k they spouted for click bait.

He was on a free so we didnít buy him either.

His agent wanted 4 years, we only agreed 3.

He needs to get stronger and, by his own admission, improve his English but whatever the future holds, it was hardly a stupid gamble - more a calculated risk.

You never know, he might just become the player he should.

 


Will this be five? It's gonna be five! It IS five!

Nothing has changed, still not quite good enough ..perhaps next season.

Like many a player that has moved to the PL they take some time to bed in. I think Meyer is exactly the same

This was not his kind of game and he should not have started. Nor would he if we hadnít run out of options

My view is he is a good impact sub, best used against a tiring midfield

Meyer isn't great, but we have to play some creative midfielders at some point. For me, I have no idea how JMac continues to start every game. He's a bench player, for depth.

Luka is the only "must start" of our midfielders. The rest are average at best. I have no idea what JMac and Kouyate contribute to our side. They can't maintain possession, make good passes, or score. So what are they doing out there?

Our midfield possession/passing has to be worst in the PL. It's painful to watch.

Meyer is the most creative player we have, he worked hard and passed intelligently, even won a couple of headers.

There seems to be some negativity about him on here as if he is supposed to single handedly win every game for us.

I would start him and Kouyate all the time.

As much as I like Jimmy Mac he had a very poor game and is now being exposed for lack of pace all the time. age catches up.

 


Let's see SP and the board trying to line up for a piss in the AW toilets at half time before peddling the new stand. We're the Arthur over here and the facilities are a disgrace

Meyer IS quality and a far better player than Roy's favourite MacArthur. Give him time please...can pass the ball, can keep it and have a good shot in him.
Next season him together With WZ could be the real deal...

Well, if it's just 80k per week and not 170k, I guess ot would be ok.

But how do you know for sure? I've seen reports that it's a staggering 170. Have you seen any reports that it's 80?

Yes Dom Ffield, very reliable journalist confirmed it. Where have you seen reports of 170?

If he doesn't play against Huddersfield I'll be fuming - why play him away in a scrap at Burnley, but not home against ultra defensive Brighton, then away against Watford but not home vs the worst team in the league? Please let's just see what he can do in the sort of home match where we need to actually do something with a ton of possession.

I agree, rarely gives the ball away, makes himself available, links up well with Wilf and Bats - every time I see him I think he's one of our better players and he creates.
