    Evans

    I think if we are getting Evans and this lad from Barca we will see either Wes or Benny leave. Somehow I can see it being Wes?

    Marlon Santos - Barcelona CB

    Might not be able to afford it. Especially finishing outside of European competition for next season.

    Evans

    Can understand reservations about the Barcelona incident. WBA a mess from top to bottom though and can understand player frustrations with how the club is managed both on the pitch and off.

    Patrick Roberts

    Just like Mahrez then 😎 Saw Roberts in a few Celtic matches last season and he looks the business.

    We aren't going to get a like for like replacement for Mahrez. This kind of signing would be good for us in my opinion.

    Who do you want Summer 2018

    I see what you're saying about Maguire but is one season in a struggling side really counted as proven now? There have been plenty of examples of players moving within the league and performing badly. The silva situation comes back to our recruitment being bad though. He might come good eventually but he clearly wasn't scouted properly or with purpose (a style of play in mind). Man City have done alright with a good chunk of "unproven" players this season. I fear we would just end up like an alardyce/Warnock team of old lumpers if we just go for players with Premier league experience. Our signings since 2016 have been mostly terrible yes but that's because we have brought in substandard players with no real common theme to the recruitment. It hasn't at any point looked like we were buying in players to play a certain type of football. Just a lot of square pegs for round holes. Like multiple number 9's to fill a number 10 spot...

    Proven relegated players? Two of them have terrible attitudes and butland is still prone to mistakes. "Proven" doesn't guarantee anything. It makes zero difference where they are from. We have just invested in dross. As well as a summer of Rudkin/Shakespeare signing off on players. We had no hope. Gross at Brighton came in from a relegated Bundesliga side and has had a great season.

    David Wagner is not the answer to our woes.

    He will probably want about 300k a week.

    Puel Gets Full Backing of the Board

    The only thing we know for certain is that they flew in today and spoke with him. Any talk about a board meeting is just speculation. They are management - of course they will talk. Perhaps they felt that things needed calming down given all the press talk. If they want to back him, seriously, then so be it.

    He brought in Diabate in January through his own work by the sounds of it so who knows.

    Puel Gets Full Backing of the Board

    People bringing out the Ranieri vote of confidence... we were 17th at the time - 2 points from bottom. I have a feeling this vote of confidence is actually genuine.

    Puel

    They are grown adults - if they don't understand something they ask for clarification? I really don't buy that line. And surely Appleton (or even our captain?...) is spending enough time with both camps to be able to translate them for those that don't understand. If something is not understood that is the fault of everyone not just the manager. They have a responsibility to fully understand what is being asked of them.

    Helicopter has landed

    The vote of "Vote of Confidence" is normally taken as a sign a manager is on the edge of being sacked - like Ranieri. Although they might want to just bypass that.
