    Burke

    There is no hope for this clown.

    He hasnít the first clue how to position himself on the pitch or how to join in the play.

    Utterly clueless.

    How did we manage to pay £15m for this a r s e clown?

    Mick you probably just highlighted the reason why money is not readily available, when as soon as a bit comes along it gets wasted.

    Looked disappointing ever since he arrived, albeit I understand he scored a couple for Celtic. (Despite that, they elected not to keep him)
    There are a couple of YouTube clips of him at Forest (Oliver Burke the wonder kid) and another headed “the next Gareth Bale” !!!
    There must be talent there somewhere ? His agent must be pretty smart methinks.
    He drives a super Aston Martin

    Without slagging the lad off, I fail to see why we spent a record amount of money on him. From what I've seen so far the only asset that he appears to possess is pace and little else. He is big lad and to my mind should be able upset defences with that pace and strength, but he doesn't. His tactical nous appears to be nil and the phrase 'headless chicken' comes to mind. He also appears to lack control of the ball, a bit of a problem for a footballer! I sincerely hope that he does come good but it's not looking that way at the present moment.

    Watching him last night, he always stands as if he is in a police line up. So when the ball comes to him he has to sort his feet . Watching our Reece ,10yr old train last week. The coach was teaching them how to get the body right to receive a pass , it should be natural and basic.
    Talk of him moving on. On another note Wilfred Bony is training with Newport.

    None of the Millwall players cost more than a million, mind you they have a good manager. Work it out.

    Burke is utter tripe. An embarrassment to the club. There are supposed to be a number of bundesliga teams interested in him. WHY!!!!!
    How does someone this consistently bad keep getting interest????
    He's worth nothing. I wouldn't even have him in the team I played for before I retired. They were a good bunch of lads and they could play football. This guy runs away from the ball.

    I agree Boingy! Whilst HRK is not good enough, he at least tries! Burke could not even make an impact in Scotland where football is at the level of league 1 on a good day!!

    Who is recruiting these donkeys and now we have Zahore?

    How much input does Bilic have into taking these players on, not Burke I know, but all the other players that are not up to standard?

    Come on GLM - itís been two league games and a ****ty cup competition for **** sake!! We were not bad in the two league games considering huge changes!! In answer to your question - who is not up to standard??? The only question mark is Zahore And yes he does not look good but would you judge Messi on two crap games?

    Get a grip and start moaning after 12 games if we are doing crap. I am more positive this season than any other although had Gayle been in our side, we could easily be favourites for promotion and do what two numpties failed to do last year - Dawson - Gayle - Barnes and and Jay Rod all of which are in the Premier League!

    You are way off course again, all I asked was how much input does Bilic have in taking these players on, not a thing about his quality as a manager.

    I would say the same input as the recruitment of Burke! Bilic has a huge job - no Dawson - no Gayle - no Barnes - no Jay Rod all of which are playing in the Premier League plus other huge changes.

    We need to do some sums - how much money has come into the club v money spent including big wages off the payrole? Once done - if two numpties could not manage promotion then we must appreciate Bilic has a mountain to climb!

    Bilic also has Burke ( useless ) and Brunt who is another year older, and the worst keeper seen for a long time! That said, I have enjoyed the first two games with almost a whole new team, as opposed to going to the Vile in the play offs where the tactic was to sit back and waste time even in the first half.

    I am very positive under Bilic but the downfall will be the goals from a ruthless striker like Gayle!

    Absolutely dog sh it of a player.

    Strange how just after a court ruled that tp had to pay Palace over £5m we signed this t urd for who really knows what, but if it was more than a quid then there was something fishy imo.

    But, obviously there is no more corruption in football and brown envelopes died with Cloughie and Revie, that why I was so, so, so shocked by the Monk affair.

    Our Tone would never have stitched us up with a donkey.

    Hope you are well Blood! This piece of **** probably paid via the back door - Toneís plot of land!!! Makes you think if the bald c unt had anything to do with it when robbing the club blind through his consultancy fees! 170 million plus was not enough for him!
