    If Kenny leaves, does Downing get his assist?

    Heard Ben Smith on 5live regarding KD. Basically said he's the right man and he said back me or sack me. Tough decision by FSG. Decision hopefully come in the next 24-48 hours and they are making progress for DoF.

    What does progress for DoF mean? It's unprofessional that they don't have a replacement for when they fired Comolli.

    Agree. Following on from all of this, they need to be far more proactive in their approach to managing the club, hopefully we'll see this with a CEO/DoF who'll do it for them.

    Ben Smith's also confirmed our interest in Rasmus Elm and Younes Belhanda. I've heard good things about Belhanda but I haven't got a clue about Elm.

    Would you lot rather have kept joe cole and aquilani and saved money from not buying henderson and adam or do you consider it a good decision by daglish to let the former two go out on loan.

    Elm looked decent the one time I've seen him play (not much to go on really though). Isn't Belhanda meant to be very similar to Gerrard?

    Aquilani didn't want to stay but regardless, good decision.

    Belhanda comes across as an absolute ****er tbph. He almost blew Montpelliers league challenge at the end of the season in a rant with Giroud over penalties, then getting sent off and a rant on Twitter about it.

    Agree. The owners have been far too reactive and have to learn to be more proactive. They really need to up their game. Every day without a new stadium announcement, we're falling behind the likes of the top teams.

    Apparently Belhanda has got a lot of interest from Arsenal, Inter and PSG so I don't see us being favourites for him.

    Footballers now a days have to be saints. As if everyone watching football doesn't know better.
    Touch another player and 3 match ban. Bull****.

    This doesn't completely apply to what you said, in that case this guy sounds risky but in general the game needs more emotion.

    This unfortunately is our handicap atm. Although Inter are in a similar position to us. Maybe we can offer more money? :dontknow: we're going to have to if we want him tbh.

    Not sure, but from what I've seen (mainly youtube) he's technically sound.

    Would still take him though if he is what he's hyped up to be. I'd rather have a player who's full of himself than complete pussies like Stewart Downing. Giroud wouldn't be a bad signing either.

    One of the best players in Ligue 1. Not to mention that he's relatively young and can learn so much more.

    J.Cole apparently in the England squad. What a waste it was to send him on loan. I'm sure that if he played the amount of games Downing did he would have had a hand in 10 goals.

    I can guarantee that he would have got more assists/goals than Downing in the PL this season.

    Maybe but you'd get everything else with it too, the poor passing, the lack of tracking back, losing the ball in damaging positions, the greed on the ball etc
