Hi fellas let's put aside this result it was only a vain hope to expect otherwise the following post will explain why this is so I have recently found out that a certain gentleman is being used by David Moyes attending every game to quantify WH from the opposition view point apart from yesterday apparently this has borne fruit he's a very experienced former player and manger and a good friend of Moyes and they discuss pre and post matches let's call him MR. R I was involved in conversation with him and learnt a few things first moyes quotes there's NO PLACE for sentimentality in my football teams and whilst some are as fit as they can be and have the heart the don't have the legs to go with it from this you can draw your own conclusions and apparently our manager has only earmarked 6 players to stay Next season At present and a lorry load for the road IF REID doesn't perform on his return he will be driving that lorry MR R also mentioned plan B which is even more radical if the trapdoor opens MOYES has already agreed two different deals verbally wether we stay up or go down he's yet to sign but DGS want
Him to stay i'm SORRY if this post upsets some of our fans but there youhave it we must try and survive with the players we have and then stand by IRONMIKE.

6 to stay? Wow. Assumedly that's:

Adrian, Ogbonna, Masuaku, Lanzini, Arnautovic, Antonio.

Comments about sentimentality and legs aimed at Collins?

I'd be surprised if we let all 3 of Kouyate, Obiang and Noble go, and let's face it he may only like 6, but Zabaleta, Carroll, Noble and probably Reid etc will be unlikely to be shiftable anyway.

I'd guess that doesn't factor in Rice as a young hopeful or any of the other youth including Fernandes.

Not hard to work out who Mr. R. is.

Surprised though since he's never come across as the most tactically astute or analytical and is a bit of a dinosaur.

Hi Stubbo It’s NOT Harry if that’s what your thinking Moyes has a short list of young players to definetly stay as. Well errr very short one possibly two three that’s it DGS are going to bite the bullet on sales IF we stay up My own guess is when the following season starts only half of the squad will be known to us BUT let’s be fair we need to be competitive and we are nowhere’ near that level we need massive change not tinkering at the edge that’s my opinon otherwise we are just staving off trouble for next season On our turnover fan base attendance etc we should be roughly 8/ 10 place in table we are massive under achievers Moyes wants to get it right and you can’t make an omelette without breaking eggs IRONMIKE.

My only concern with revolution over evolution is that if the new squad doesn't gel quickly or if you being a load in not used the the league and they don't adapt you go down.

Anyway, it's always interesting with us.

It's been on the cards for a while. We are far too inconsistent and we need players who can perform to high standards regularly.

Can you not just say who Mr R is mike?

I’ll be honest, and this isn’t me being negative, but I don’t see a massive overhaul happening in the summer. Regardless of whether we stay in the division or go down, I see a fair few being shown the door, and a fair few coming in. However wholesale changes isn’t necessarily going to bare fruit.

Also, it’s worth pointing out the summer transfer window shuts BEFORE the season starts this year, and with the World Cup taking place. that doesn’t give us much time to complete a total squad overhaul. When you consider we have a 20 odd man squad (not including youngsters, I don’t see us selling 14 and signing 14.

Already posted this, but it went to the banter page, I think Mr R is Curbs?

Curbs would make sense of course if it was a manager only the name Roeder came to mind I physically shuddered at the thought.

Maybe Mr R is Peter Reid.
