Glenn Whelan - Released
« on: July 19, 2017, 07:08:10 PM »
As it looks all but done he gets his own thread.

The Telegraph reporting that an agreement between Stoke City and Aston Villa that could rise as high as 1.5m has been struck to take the 33-year-old to Villa Park in time for the new Championship season.

He was a decent enough player a few years ago. He's 33 now though so not sure how much he has left to offer.

Don't tell me he has a 3 year contract as well?

Another shit one. Can't see Bruce lasting beyond December.

I'd have preferred to have seen Tshibola given a chance as cover for Jedinak but welcome anyway and good luck.

We've lurched from spunking vast amounts of cash on the likes of Hogan and McCormack to this. I'm yearning for a manager like Jokanović at Fulham or Smith at Brentford who could unearth a few future stars for a few quid.

Oh yeah, welcome and all that.

Did we need cover for Jedinak? 100% yes - we're so vulnerable when he's out

There is no other player in the squad who could do this, except maybe Lyden. Tshibola can't. And I don't think Lansbury offers enough protection.

He played 30 times for a pretty decent premie league team last year

The negativity about EVERYTHING is starting to piss me off a bit to be honest

Yeah why didn't we go in for that James bree or Jacob bedeau? Or give green a chance? Or get that Sam Johnstone from Man Utd?

Fucking Bruce. Every poster on here is a better manager

Q) How do you make a one dimensional, flat, ponderous midfield even more one dimensional, flat and ponderous?

A) By signing Glenn Whealan.

He's well and truly putting his stamp on the club now, unfortunately too many people have already brought into it.

Or maybe

Q) How do you ensure the midfield doesn't crumble when Jedinak is out, while also allowing Lansbury and / or hourihane to concentrate on what we bought them for?

Still a regular for Ireland, isn't he? Can't be that bad a buy for the Championship if he is.

He scored the goal that left me in possibly the most foul mood I've ever been in after the football.

What exactly did we buy them for?
