    It looks as if Gareth Barry is headed our way. We’ve lost a 33 year old midfielder and replaced him with a 36 year old! Whatever happened to bringing in younger players? Is Pulis trying to be the first manager to field a team of over 30’s in the PL? We seem to be the dumping ground for those that are past it.

    Steady on old boy – You’re no spring chicken 🙂

    Yes I find it ironic that TP talks about having an old squad yet keeps signing more old men. Thats his main problem, he says one thing, but in general does the complete opposite.

    I, for one, will give this signing a chance and think the vitriol is primarily due to timing. If we had bought Barry in as the last signing of the window after bringing in 2 – 4 younger players then the reaction would most likely be that it’s a good move to bring an old head in to have experience around the dressing room. The fact he is first unleashes the demons who will knock the club no matter what. I still say, wait until the 1st September and lets see where we are. COYB.

    Duke – We are waiting, and have been for 4 months, but we will wait a little longer just to see how desperate we become. Its just typical Albion.

    Dear Derwent – You’re missing the point of the argument. If we had done some early business, having known we were safe in early April, we wouldn’t be sitting here with TP bemoaning the fact we need several more players. Surely we had identified players before the season ended. I don’t know why we seem to make transfer deals such hard work.
