They want to give Bailley a 12 month extension. Is there any point? He's been here 5 years and only played 100 times. 8 league appearances this season, 4 last season, then 12, then 13

Its decisions like this which show us up for being the farce that we are.

In fact, seeing Jonny Evans play for Leicester against us the other day, sums up the polarization in sound decision making that our clubs have demonstrated over the last 8 years.

Letting Smalling leave was a bigger error IMO.

Bailley has signed a contract extension ffs.

He's 27 and has only played 173 games in his entire career. Loads of those are sub appearances too. Horrendous decision.

They're not serious about sorting out the defence

I’d say all our transfer plans died with the ESL.

Midfield diamond with Pogba on the left VdB on the right McT screening the defence and Bruno at the point of the diamond feeding two strikers and then all we have to sort is defence.
Send Hercules to the knackers yard and we’re well on the way.
From ghoulies and ghosties and long-leggedy beasties and things that go bump in the night, Good Lord deliver us...and while you're at it, a bit of a helping hand with hobbits wouldn't go amiss...

The thinking must be that we have Tuanzebe and Mengi coming through and so no point in paying for new defenders. Or they're still smarting from their fuck up paying huge money for slabhead

Both, probably. Definitely the latter. Maguire was our last big spend in that department. They Glazers won't sanction anymore CBs. They'll look at the numbers from Florida and say you've already spent a shitload on defenders.

We should have bought him when he was at Hull and his release fee clause was 15m.
