Interesting to see that the man with the joint most votes, gabby, is not only almost certainly going nowhere but was made captain for the game in the week. I'm always amazed that managers see things so completely differently to fans. Gabby must be the greatest training ground player in the world, maybe we should play our home games at Bodymoore Heath?

The only thing about the midfielders we bought last season is Landsbury Houlihan and Thors combined fee would be covered by the sale of Veretout its getting rid of the previous crop which are such rubbish that presents the problem in midfield. Up front Hogan ? big question mark here
not sure of the thinking in buying him the way we play. McCormack our worst mistake last season majority of his fee is already down the toilet. The list above pretty much sums up just how many could go without tears being shed. Would happily see 14 of those names depart
problem is who is going to buy them now?

Gill, Veretout, Sanchez, Cissokho, Tsishbola, Gollini? all gone on loan or sold. Baker a surprise not on the list.

Gardner, Elphick, Hutton, Bacuna, McCormack, Amavi all with current or recent suitors, so some cause for optimism.

Some concrete interest in Gabby and Richards, (surely some Turkish, Chinese or Arabian club is so out of touch that they'd consider either of those a coup) would make for a great summer departures wise.

My theory is every manager thinks they're different they think they're going to be the one who can unlock their talent consistently. As poor as Gabby has become he always had 5 or so games where he'd be unplayable and thats slowly come down over the seasons to 0. First day of the season away to Arsenal about 4 or 5 years ago he tore them apart and I think managers look at that type of thing and think I can bring that out in him consistently.

Look how many took a chance on Balotelli and obviously he clearly has a lot of talent but he's mental. At this level if you could figure out how to get Gabby to even get back to his MoN days you'd think he'd do well enough to do a job in some games. Thats the logic.
