I must be in the minority but I don't think we've got that much deadwood at all. We've got a big squad but it's not exactly full of the standard of player we had 10 years ago and I don't go along with the fact none of them wouldn't get into many other decent teams in the league either.

I think the squad has been mismanaged, poorly coached and looks devoid of any motivation, which clearly you can't put solely at Allardyce's door as I think the issues run much deeper and longer term than that, but you'd like to see some evidence he can offer a plan to turn things around. He has five months now to show that, with the most talent he's ever had to work with.

Looks like Lennons gone!
Night comes down and finds you alone
In a space and time of your own
Lost in dreams in world full of shadows.

I doubt they'd have Allardyce back.

How is Besic still here?
Did Bosnia make the World Cup?
Does he not need games?

Surely someone in the Scottish premiership can take him.

I guess we did spend just over £45m in this window so far which a couple of years ago would have been unthinkable.

I agree that a few players will need to move on in order to trim the squad, but seriously though, if there is one position that desperately needs addressing, it is left back. Has Steve Walsh not found one in the last 12 months since Oviedo left?

He wasn't looking because Baines was still fairly ace and nobody, presumably including yourself, could foresee the extent of his decline.  I have not given up the hope that he can get back to near his best for another couple of seasons. He is not that old.

Left back? Are you sure?

Take it you didn't watch him over the past 12 months. He's shot
anything but long ball!

Good one.

Some shit in this snippet that had me laughing. Bin bags under the cover of darkness, the amount of clubs his new boss has pissed off etc....

Don’t think his signings so far, Cenk and Walcott are a shambles, am quite pleased with them.

So you think it’s a good idea the club lash out a £26m fee and £145k p/w wage on a player the DoF didn’t have on his radar 6 weeks back but the manager has been following for the last 18 months and most expect to be off in the summer?

Not a great idea for continuity is it? Like when we bought all those slow number tens in the summer and forgot about replacing the centre forward who bolted.
