It will be interesting to see what happens if we finish the season on the back of 8 defeats in a row, which seems more than possible. The Villa game is the only one I can see us picking up any points in, and they are going to want it a lot more than we are.

My understanding is that the 'Transfer Window' will open when the season ends, 26 July, but there is no official confirmation as to when it will close.

I've heard October

Quite literally the post I replied to said “the 100% stark reality is that the only way we can play attractive/attacking football AND stay in the premier is to invest hundreds of millions”. If the barometer is playing like Man City, that might be true.

I want to distinguish between expansive and entertaining - entertaining football doesn’t have to be expansive; there are a lot of direct teams who’s plan is getting the ball forward quickly and overload with crosses.. this can be exciting without ever being expansive. We are neither, for clarity.

It doesn’t matter when it was spent, it’s indicative of the quality of the squad. Our squad is as good, if not better, than most of the bottom half.

Hindsight is an easy thing, but investing £55 - £60m on Benteke and Sakho just hasn't worked out and has led to us spending peanuts in the years since. That's why we have one of the very weakest squads in the division.

 


George Courtney, the World Cup referee, everyone is looking at him. When will he blow....?

So as I said, everyone else falls within 27-30...

Players don’t start declining because they’re nearly 30.

That is simply not true and, as Willo pointed out, we have a lot around the thirty mark. It's also the age that niggling injuries persist. Defensive players can generally eek out a bit longer but we've got an age problem and complete lack of attacking depth or players with the ability to travel with the ball.

Could not agree more, just look at Zaha he looks like he in decline at 27 and yet Cahill is still good at 34/35!

I take it your not a fan of McCarthy? Why is that ?

There is no 2 ways about it. Zaha has lost a lot of pace for some reason.

Is there any Academy player 'Knocking on the door' to replace an experienced PL player?
The sole objective is to ensure we survive in the PL.

As I understand the U23s are bottom of their league which isn't exactly full of big names. Richard Shaw made some fairly sobering remarks before he left as I recall.

Yes we seem to lack talent there as well, they have only scored 27 goals and currently are 2nd from bottom!
