    Ciaran Clark

    Another rumour!
    Iíve always rated him and despite being in his early thirties he would add some experience.

    The problem with West Brom is the continuous need to recruit aged players or those that come for their last pay cheque.

    So no from me! We need young and hungry players like Conor Gallagher who will cover every blade of grass!

    We also need to rid ourselves of over the hill players like Livermore, Phillips and Bartley!

    Can’t disagree with that ‘hunger’ attribute baggieal buddy. However, I am drawn to some good experience to lead the defence. Whilst Ciaran is not in the same league as Johnny Evans, he should be able to show similar composure.
    Unquestionably Bartley needs to be stepped down.

    Heís a good player Prando and whilst I like hungry young players the RIGHT experienced player can be an attribute!

    I am told Bartley still lives in Wetherby which is crazy with almost 3 hours travel each way. We do need a clear out though and Bruce worries me!! Persisting with Bartley, Livermore, Reach, Zohore, Phillips and Robinson will just get Bruce the sack!! If Bruce canít see this after the dismal performances under him since taking over - then heís naive at best! Why would they come good?

    Grady needs to up his game as what a waste of talent! Reminds me of Koumas in that the talent is there but inconsistently shown!!

    Fingers crossed Prando for a Brentford win!

    Iíve given up with bruce, heís just another dinosaur that doesnít trust youth but relies on old pros, we been there are done that, combined with Lai and co look where we are now
    I d rather see a young promising coach giving youth a chance with a couple of Ď old stagersí even it if meant spending 2-3 years in the Championship
    Bruce can join the likes of Pulis, Pardew, Houghton, Allardyce, Hughes and the rest of the has beens on Blackpool beach

    You mean like Ismael and that worked out well.
    Lots of fans were asking for Hodgson back and he’s a lot older than Bruce.
    Some fans don’t want to give Bruce a chance because they didn’t want him in the first place. Now he wasn’t my choice either, but he has to be given a transfer window. Because if we start of bringing in a new manager, he would want to see which of the rubbish bunch of players he wanted toto keep before sorting out his transfer list.Now We know know which players we want and will be a long way down the line with some.

    If we bring the likes of Clarke in then we need to rid ourselves of some of the 'old brigade' otherwise we are only adding to that age group. We have enough so called experienced players and need to look to young players in order to build for the future. However, the way things are at present, and I sincerely hope that I'm wrong, it isn't looking that way.

    I was not unhappy with Bruce when he was brought in. Football did not improve though as clearly he rated players like Livermore and Reach plus wants to get a tune out of Zohore.

    Does Bruce not get it - they are not good enough
