What do you change?
I would do the decent thing and resign.
let the team get fit and gel
Listen to my maggy mates & family and take the fuckers down
As Bruce is no doubt doing I would chase a striker that is likely to win things in the air (crouch would be ideal as he is also canny on the ground but it is unlikely we'd get him, Gyan would do as well), I'd spend the money to get N'Zogbia and away from home I would go 4-5-1 to avoid being overran in midfield. I would also look at loaning in a keeper for 3 months- I dont think Mignolet looks ready for an extended run in the team at this point, and I dont think it is fair on the lad (if he makes a few costly errors it could wreck his confidence and lead to him never making it here)
Mind, I'd be a shit manager, so we'd probably be considerably worse if I was in charge
Steve is that you?
nah man, its Howard- almost forgot to mention, I'd also push custard up a hill with me fingers
spend - Oops WASTE
another 20 Mill on Defenders
btw 20 Mill was Random figure
Agree with everything (except about Crouch being ideal).
We are in desperate need of someone who can create and right now N'Zogbia is as good as anyone we can get and at a very reasonable price.
A striker who can link up the midfield and attack is also crucial. Whether this should be a Robbie Keane type link up player or more of a target man i'm not sure.
Mingolet doesn't look ready for Premiership football. If Gordon is to return before the end of September then perhaps we can risk it, any longer than that and we need a keeper in.
Other than that it's all about allowing the new players time to settle in to the squad and learn to play together.
Work like fuck on defensive and attacking set plays
John Mensah - Loan
Nedum Onuoha - Loan
Titus Bramble - 750k
Angeleri - 2-3m
Bruce has actually got more bodies into our defence without wasting any money. The only real money he has spent is on Angeleri and considering the alternative was Hutton, if it worked out he has saved us £6-7m.
We only need to keep posession of the ball We've got to learn to pass it to one of our players, that's the hard part
Then eye'd proper kick f**k out of the players if we lost:-D
I'd change the away tactics and go 4-5-1 to flood the midfield and stop opposition players finding space between the lines so easily.
In the remaining days of the window, i'd buy Jamie O'Hara as he'd offer us something different in the centre as he has the ability to pick a killer pass and his delivery from open play and set peices is top quality, not to mention he'd come relatively cheap costing about £3-£5million.
Then I'd secure N'Zogbia meaning we'd have someone who can consistantly go past his man and whip in a good cross.
Finally i'd bring in a front man to play alongside Bent in a 4-4-2 at home. Maybe Jerome or Gyan.
Easy this management business.
O'Hara is a good shout like- would certainly be a good option (but i guess whatever money we have will all be spent on a striker and possibly on the zog)
That was my problem. I think I may have gone over Ellis' budget.
I would read some coaching manuals and join weight watchers.
Aye, we need money to feed the zog, and to pay for a striker. Still, I suppose we could always sell Ferdinand instead of loaning him out (I know no one wants to buy him, but we'll forget about that minor detail for now) and use that money to get O'Hara. Sorted, next, the Middle East
yarrr i'd sign;
O'Hara - free
N'Zogbia - free
Ba - free
i be a pirate and be scary as fuck yarrrr
I'd change my birth certificate and pretend I was born in London and supported Brentford as a kid. That would shut the stupid Mag fixated twats on here up.
