Who would you get rid of

Assuming we can get what in??

I hope we can bring in:

A clever central midfielder

A proven goalscorer

A decent right back

Some cover on the wings

Cover left back

Assuming we could get the above I would let go:

Smith
Butt
Ryan Taylor
Ameobi
Best

Then I think we would be well prepared.

I'd agree with that, but keep Smith and R. Taylor for cover.

I wouldn't keep Ryan Taylor at all. He is awful.

No harm in using him as cover, he's not "awful" just not as good as others in the squad.

Very useful for set pieces.

Joey Barton would be first on my list for the chop. Followed by Ameobi Xisco and Butt.

Ryan Taylor is one of the worst footballers I've seen in a long term. Set pieces is all he can do.

Hmmm...everywhere else he is suspect though. He's supposed to be a full back and yet he gets skinned by everyone and can't dribble.

He can't dribble that well, but he can cross.

Would keep Ryan Taylor as cover. Also good to bring on from the bench if we need his set plays.

Butt for definate. Never mind that his legs are shot, the bloke is an absolute liability. Though I'm sure I read somewhere a couple of months back that he is retiring at the end of this season?

I think it high time that Ameobi acquainted himself with the treatment tables of another club, though he must have broken in all the ones at Newcastle so that they fit him like a knitted jumper, so maybe we can throw one in as a carrot for him to piss off.

Barton has to go as well. What's he on a week? £75,000 is it? That's a lot of money for a player who when not totally wigging out in public fits of self destruction spends most of his time doing fuck all but telling the press how he's raring to go whilst counting the cracks in the ceiling of the treatment room.

I'd keep the rest to be fair. I think we have the basis for a decent enough solid squad, but need four (maybe five) players with a bit of magic in their boots. Some creativity and flair in the middle would make all the difference in the world. At least this crop play and look like an actual team instead of a bunch of bewildered individuals who look like they wished they were in Guantanamo Bay instead of St James Park.

That young chap, Leonard........er.......Laurence.......Lemuel....... Messi at Barcelona, is apparently coming on leaps and bounds sir. He could give our midfield a bit of vim and vigour. One for the future methinks.

I now have this mental image of Lionel Messi introducing himself to Ryan Taylor on the first day of training:

Messi :"Ola, I am Lionel Messi"

Taylor: *puts down banjo and takes blade of grass out of mouth* "Get orf my laand"

It beggars understanding what Jokin ear would have done with him!!

"Oi you, yes fuckin' you, the fuckin' dago, can't you fuckin' pass the fuckin' ball you fuckin' greedy cunt. Don't have to fuckin' beat half the fuckin' team every fuckin' time you fuckin' know. Fuckin' bring Butt into the fuckin' game for fucks sake, he's done it all at fuckin' proper fuckin' club, not some fuckin' tick fuckin' bet wop outfit in so called fuckin' yourope, you fuckin' fancy dan, you fuckin' wouldn't fuckin' last 2 fuckin' minutes in my great Wimbledon team of 50 fuckin' years ago. Robbie fuckin' Earle, now fuckin' there's a fuckin' midfielder, no farty fuckin' arsey flicks and fuckin' fancy pants dribbles either, just put his fuckin' laces through the fuckin' ball and fuckin' lumped it up to the huge fuckin' darkie up fuckin' front. Fuckin' foreigners comin' over here and telling us how to fuckin' play our fuckin' game for fucks sake. Vinny fuckin' Jones, now there's a fuckin' footballer, knew where the fuckin' goal was did fuckin' Vinny. Didn't fuckin' put the fuckin' ball there often mind, but by fuckin' fuck, he didn't fuckin' half sweat his fuckin' cobblers off, gave 123% every fuckin' time. Bunch of dago cunts yer fuckin' average Argie, 'oo won the fuckin' war then eh eh eh eh???

That's a bit optimistic. Unless we die and get re-incarnated as Man City.

Don't think you can get a clever central midfielder, proven golascorer or a decent right back with free transfers and bargain basement championship buys- which is where we'll be shopping.

No ,the players you named you would get rid of are 3 out of 5 but what you said was:


"I hope we can bring in:

That's equates to 5 or 6 players who I assume would be first teamers?

3 of which would be cover, meaning they should be readily available and not cost a lot!

A proven goalscorer doesn't come on a free very often like, and certainly not cheap, but there are some clever midfielders that can be signed for pennies if you look in the right places. You'd need a good scouting team mind, and I'm not sure we have that.

Yeah, imagine getting a striker who scored more than 200 goals at a rate of a goal every other game for teams like Ajax, Barcelona and Holland, was still only 28 on a free.

He'd probably be sacked after a season, even if he scored 13 goals in 25 starts, I expect.

I didn't say it doesn't happen, I just said it doesn't happen often.

There aren't many, off the top of my head I can only think of Owen and now Kluivert now you've mentioned him.

But even ona free, they'd expect daft wages and I don't think Ashley will want to pay too much on wages.
