Just a thought, and maybe Ed002 will blow it out of the water but here goes, what if we signed Zouma on a permanent deal this window, would that be a way of putting us back in the race to get Batshuayi here on loan? Thanks in advance :-)

BigH78

{Ed002's Note - You are living in a fantasy world I am afraid BigH.}


1.) 12 Jan 2019 10:26:26
I had a feeling you'd say something along those lines lol NP Ed. Thanks anyway.


2.) 12 Jan 2019 17:32:38
It’s the plane big h, it’s the plane.


3.) 12 Jan 2019 23:33:51
We would be better going for Batshuayi permanent as Chelsea may well want to keep Zouma and clearly don't want Bats.


4.) 13 Jan 2019 00:10:38
Zouma not good enough.


 

 

11 Jan 2019 00:25:46
There has been some talk about him on here and if SSN are to be believed we are now seriously interested in bringing in Batshuayi on a permanent deal. Given what Brands said I will believe it if and when it happens.

BigH78

1.) 11 Jan 2019 10:53:34
Would be a good signing BigH mate, rags are saying we have to offload first hmmm.

{Ed002's Note - It would be complex given he is registered to Valencia and right now they are discussing him with two other sides about taking him on loan for the rest of the season.}


 

 

09 Jan 2019 15:46:36
Vincent Aboubakar of Porto is touted as being worth a punt to get us a few goals. He is quick and apparently quite a deadly finisher when given an opportunity. Asking price is about £18m according to a piece on HITC.

BigH78

1.) 10 Jan 2019 19:38:57
Wouldn't touch HITC with a barge pole, their stories are all guesses

Chances are that article is saying that a reporter of theirs thinks we should sign him, rather than us having any actual interest.


 

 

07 Jan 2019 12:49:05
Victor Anichebe has apparently said he'll come back and play for us FOR FREE! Any takers?

BigH78

1.) 07 Jan 2019 13:17:10
no thanks, but can he be worse than what we have lol.


2.) 07 Jan 2019 13:55:37
If it means someone else losing their spot then I'd have to say no. If not get him in for training and see if he's improved any and is fit enough, then play it by ear.


3.) 08 Jan 2019 02:00:12
what!

We had a tough game Sunday I know, and it's early days into the Revolution, but some players were well below par last night. If we want to compete with the big boys we need to improve and start showing some consistency. Yes Newcastle were difficult to break down, but we squandered chances to bury them and now the Fat Spanish Waiter is claiming it was a tactical masterstroke on his part. We have to get at Watford on Monday then show City and Spurs we don't fear them.

BigH78

1.) 07 Dec 2018 11:57:20
Agree with that BigH, i also have been saying the same thing, i think the writing could be on the wall for players like Lookman and Tosun who have had many chances to shine, it would maybe be a good time to loan Lookman out to someone like Southampton to get him up to par by playing regular footy in the premiership Tosun might also be loaned back to Turkey, some of the rags today saying we could be on the lookout for a right back due to a few poor performances by Seamus, not sure I agree with that one though, he has been a faithful servant for us and has got more to offer, personally i think Marco and Marcel will have this sorted come the January window especially as we have seen what they did in the last one, i certainly have only praise for what they have done so far ou team has changed beyond recognition to Sam's efforts.


2.) 08 Dec 2018 11:59:13
I just don't get the downer on Seamus tbh. He's always been one of our most consistent players. Yes he was injured and it takes some time to get back to your previous best, but if you watch the games I think you'll see he's trying. Imo he's being let down too often by those he tries to link up like Theo who has trouble holding the ball up and does little if anything to help defensively.

Gomez 4th yellow card makes me wonder if he should be rested against Southampton or given the opportunity to get a 5th and get the inevitable suspension out of the way sooner rather than later.

BigH78

1.) 14 Jan 2019 05:58:25
i may be wrong here mate but doesn't that yellow card count reset on 1st of jan? so would need another 4 before a ban if that was his first yellow since then.


2.) 14 Jan 2019 05:59:54
nope he was booked against Leicester so he's now on 2 yellows needs another 3 for a ban, i think av been known to be wrong before tho haha.


3.) 14 Jan 2019 09:23:11
Nearly right mate lol. The ban is reset 31st Dec so anyone getting their 5th yellow on 1st Jan or later won't get banned. However, if I've read it right (Eds? ) they need to be on 4 around that time to qualify. Seeing as Gomez only got his 4th yellow yesterday (4 came up against his name on tv) he doesn't qualify, meaning the next yellow will put him on the requisite 5 and earn him a ban.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 15:10:43
There's no getting away from it, Bournemouth have caused us one or two problems. Apart from the last 10 minutes we've looked second best all over the pitch. Siggy and Digne have been quiet so far. Better second half required.

BigH78

1.) 13 Jan 2019 16:14:34
Hanging on there a bit towards the end and I thought 'Oh No' but great goale from Zouma and DCL. I hope this hard fought win gives the lads some confidence to push on.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 16:35:54
Confidence is the key word.


 

 

13 Jan 2019 09:49:58
I'm not going to make a specific prediction today. Hasn't worked out too well recently. Suffice to say it should be a good game with us slight favourites to win. COYB!

BigH78

1.) 13 Jan 2019 10:07:00
Off to gym then the game, but I hope you are right BigH, most of all I want to see signs of real purpose and thought. Cross a ball, make sure it misses first man for instance. Do the basics well and everything else will slot in. COYB.


2.) 13 Jan 2019 12:25:27
4-3 win for the blues.


3.) 13 Jan 2019 12:54:42
We will win 3-1.


 

 

12 Jan 2019 10:30:03
Should be an open (ish) game tomorrow and depending on a few results this afternoon a win could see us move up 3 places to 8th. I believe. Do you? COYB!

BigH78

1.) 12 Jan 2019 13:04:52
Good time to be playing them. They are in a bit of a bad patch as are we. Let's hope we can get that win.


2.) 12 Jan 2019 14:28:36
Thanks very much Arsenal! Awful display allows West Ham to snaffle 8th place. Grrr.


3.) 12 Jan 2019 14:32:46
No, I don't believe we can move up to 8th, not unless there is 4 points for a win.


4.) 12 Jan 2019 14:43:25
Oh do try to keep up you blert. 'Before' the West Ham game - which was when I posted - they were on 28 we are on 27 so if they lost or drew and we won tomorrow we'd overtake them and be up to 8th place on 30 points. Obv can't happen now because as I say Arsenal were awful and WH have moved onto 31.


5.) 13 Jan 2019 00:21:56
We should have gone for Pellegrini, I did say so at the time.


 

 

10 Jan 2019 12:32:58
Gonna play Devils Advocate for a minute here. There are 17 games left (if my maths is correct) and we need at least another 15/ 20 points to be safe (preferably more) . If we don't get a goalscorer in the Jan window where are they going to come from?

BigH78

{Ed025's Note - i wish i knew mate..


1.) 10 Jan 2019 12:40:08
Scary thought isn't it.

{Ed025's Note - it certainly is..


2.) 10 Jan 2019 13:10:24
DCL richarlison bernard all chip in.


3.) 10 Jan 2019 13:23:13
Hope so Johny. Gylfi could get some. Walcott could start repaying the blind faith MS has in him and bag a few. It could suddenly click for Tosun and he gets some. Clearly I trust we'll be okay and was just asking the Question. On paper we have goals in us, we just need to start converting some and stop the errors at the back.


4.) 10 Jan 2019 13:43:20
The next 5 games we should win so let's see after them where we stand. Who's going to get the goals? We do need a out and out striker.

{Ed025's Note - i wish i was as optimistic as you penysarn..


5.) 10 Jan 2019 13:48:51
Look at your post again BigH. You say we need 15 to 20 points. if we don't get a goalscorer where are they going to come from? In my knowledge of football, if you stop the other team scoring you get at least one point. Likewise, if you score the same number of goals you get one point. If you score 1 more than the other team you get 3 points. I apologise for making this sound so simplistic, but we have scored 31 goals in 21 games. that's not a bad return really and we should be a lot higher in the table with that stat. Our problem is we have also conceded 31 goals. Even with Harry Kane in our team (prob the best center forward in UK at the mo) we might pick up a few more points, but would prob still be conceding around 31 goals. Chelsea have only scored 38 goals. but only conceded 16. that's why their points tally is 14 better than our own. I agree we need a decent center forward. but my priority would be to tighten up at the back. Specifically at set pieces. Pickford and the center backs have been to blame for many of those goals no matter how good they have looked through some games. We seemed to tighten up when Mina started playing but Silva then dropped him? 3 teams above us have scored less goals than us. Another has only scored 1 more than us. So by tightening up a bit we could be in 7th easily. A good center forward would be nice. but tightening up a bit at set pieces would be better for me.


6.) 10 Jan 2019 13:53:11
Haha that's not like you Ed. Trust me mate 5 wins before the rubbishy game.

{Ed025's Note - you know i will hold you to that mate.. :)


7.) 10 Jan 2019 14:03:04
I know you will mate : (.


8.) 10 Jan 2019 14:23:52
Fair points Degsyp. I am in full agreement that tightening it up at the back has to be a high priority. If we can get that problem sorted we should win more than we lose and be okay. I hope so anyway.


9.) 10 Jan 2019 16:37:34
penysarn am with u all the way pal 15 points next 5 games tgere ya go done haha.


10.) 10 Jan 2019 19:13:46
Tallk about optimistic Penysam / Johny lol. Here's hoping you're right guys, then we can relax and push on for another 30+ in the final 12 COYB!


11.) 10 Jan 2019 22:00:23
We were not that bad just as we were not that great when we won a few games in November. We are inconsistent mid table team. Win and defeats in equal measure at moment. As for goals we have 2 of top 10 scorers in pl this season so not bad.


12.) 10 Jan 2019 21:38:07
39 points is enough to be safe. Is that what you are suggesting when you say safe?
8 home games left, we should win 4 at least of those equalling 12 points. That puts us on 39.
Throw in 2 or 3 away wins and some draws and we should be fine.


13.) 11 Jan 2019 00:19:35
I'm sure we will be fine Smit, and of course I hope we are more than just 'safe' and we finish as close to the top 6 as possible. I was just putting it out there mate.


14.) 11 Jan 2019 08:11:08
Degsyp, I have addressed this before but of we want to tighten up, my solution with the players we have would be a back four Kenny Keane Mina Digne with Zouma in front of the two CB's. Gueye Siggy and then Riccy Tosun/ DCL Lookman. Gomes currently out of form is my reasoning but if in then in for Siggy.


15.) 11 Jan 2019 11:05:32
Who am I to argue DFS. But I also think Pickford has to shoulder some of the blame for dropping points. I also blame the zonal marking situation. But we need to stay calm in all this. This is a situation whereby the manager needs time and space to sort his own things out the way he wants. I trust him at the mo even if I disagree with some of his choices. This is not the same situation as last season where Allardyce split the fans as much as Brexit! We are pretty much united behind Silva and all want him to succeed. that's a positive in itself!


16.) 11 Jan 2019 13:57:45
17 games left and 13 points to get are not the problem. I would be shocked even with Silvas record if we cannot record 4 wins from our remaining. What is a requirement is points, position bring £££'s and importantly the decisions made need to be judged correct.

If we get somewhere near the figure we are looking for for him I think it's the best decision all around. Good luck to him if it happens.

I know different people have their favourites etc Ed and Trev is entitled to like/ dislike whoever he chooses, but if the rest of the squad had HALF of Oumars drive and passion we'd be in the top 4 now.

BigH78

{Ed025's Note - not sure i would go that far mate, but passion and commitment should be the least we expect from every player..

Blimey Trev. Say what's on your mind why don't you lol Just to clarify something. The reason most sane people think Oumar is a good guy is because he is. The s--t he had to put up with from Ronnie K was a disgrace, yet he still tried and often succeeded to score valuable goals when called upon to do so. Yes he was a headless chicken at times and was never going to be number one choice but he showed more commitment and passion than most of the others combined. Is he good enough to be in our first team? No, but to call him crap is a bit harsh imo.

BigH78

{Ed025's Note - im with you BigH, give me a niasse over the likes of mirallas or schneiderlin any day, not the most gifted we all know that but played for the shirt and gave 100% every time....even though the club treated him appallingly..

Fair points BigNev, especially about the fitness levels, but we/ I'm not talking about making 5 or 6 changes, just the one or two who are clearly misfiring. I know before some smart/ a says I mentioned 3 or 4 players but with Seamus he hasn't looked the same since his injury and Walcott, well, is a lazy tw-t who needs a permanant rest imho lol.

I mentioned not long ago that some players could possibly be suffering from fatigue. It happens now and then, even to the best of them. Rest Siggy. Rest Gomez. Rest Walcott and maybe Seamus too. Do it now and I'm sure - except for maybe Walcott - we'll soon see them back at their best.

If Marco doesn't get a striker in the window I guess he'll have little option and DCL will get a run. Especially if Oumar and Cenk go.

I know it should be rocking all the time but it doesn't always work like that unfortunately. I guess if the players continue to show the passion they did second half yesterday it will soon return.
