Andy Carroll loan until the end of the season? Increasingly out of favour at West Ham...

No chance

He started their last game

They’re in a relegation scrap

See also Benteke

He also got booed off in their last game. He's been getting it in the neck from West Ham fans all season, add to that a new manager who is likely to make immediate changes in January and Carroll going into the last year of his contract next season. He'd be perfect in our current team if he could stay fit. Stranger things have happened.

Good point AND its Moyes here. if anyone is going to be daft enough to weaken his own squad its him.

I can't see any problem with us signing Andy Carroll given our respective records with injuries!

We're being linked with a Czech striker aren't we?  Didn't work out too well last time (Libor suffered some really bad luck), but we'll see.  I think a striker and maybe some cover at CB is all we require in January.

Sure. Decent shout. I doubt West Ham will be looking to do us any more favours though, but if they are then, yeah.

Fair play to Wolves they ARE setting the League alight at the moment.

They have got half of Europe on loan, advertising for the agent

The bastards. It's not like we're using Snodgrass, Onomah and Johnstone or anything.

They have taken it on to a new level thanks to Mendes

They haven't really. They have five players on loan, we have three.

About a quarter of each of our first teams are loan players. We're hardly miles apart.

Difference is their Chinese owners asked Mendes about the manager appointment whilst ours asked Roy Kinnear.

He seems to have settled on a formula that is  getting results, it’s ugly but at the moment effective.
To get automatic promotion he still needs to.
1.come up with a plan B
2. Get results against the Top teams in the Division.

Are you saying he hasn't changed tactics at any point?

As for getting results against the top teams, I'd agree.

Point two is why we can't be happy with the play-offs. We don't win in big games.

Apparently rumours being spread of Villa suppliers not being paid promptly and generally him not having a pot to piss in and he’s not happy.

I don't blame him fpr being unhappy. It patently is not true, why should he put up with it. I would be livid if in the same position.

Playing devil's advocate, how is it 'patently' not true - I've no idea on what terms our suppliers are paid, do you?

The big companies, supermarkets anyway, are always the last to pay.
Actually Supermarkets pay quicker than most businesses in the UK.
There are some exceptions.
