    Bruno has retired leaving Glenn as the elder statesman of the squad. I think if Hughton takes the West Brom job he could come in for Bong and Kayal who are the next oldest. Therefore, in terms of experience, I think it is important Glenn remains at the club.

    I also think he's a decent bench option. When there's 20-25 minutes left you may only get one chance and he has that ability to be in the right place at the right time. I would hope that without the weekly grind of being a starter he may be fresher throughout the season. It is noticeable his goals dried up in the final few matches as tiredness kicked in - that should not be a problem next season.

    Personally, I hope we move on Locadia and replace him with someone that might benefit from Glenn's wisdom. Glenn himself said he'd learned from Bruno and you cannot underestimate the value of experience in the squad.

      I'm very surprised and disappointed by that ridiculous comment from Glenn. Thank God we are freshening things up this season.
      Agreed. Suggests a total lack of ambition. Not what I would have expected from him. Disappointed.

      That should have been this season.
      Murray should have also received a 'hero's goodbye' on Sunday.

      If the new manager names GM in his 25, he and a fair few on the recruitment side, would have failed the club.
      In the unlikely event Mr Bloom doesn't make the funds available to replace GM, (again) then there was no real point in sacking Mr Hughton.
      Murray was given another 12 month deal in November taking him up to summer 2020, so it would appear he is still in our plans. I'd agree that if he is starting all our games next season then something has gone badly wrong this summer. But as a squad player I think he still has something to offer coming off the bench. 13 goals last season in a team that barely crosses the halfway line was not a bad return.

      Well at least his performances since November are now explained...
      900k people in Bromley & Croydon, almost double pop of Manchester. Bigger than Norwich & Ipswich. Fickle fans in terms of attendance, cup games increased attendance do not help.

      If Cardiff's last minute winner had been correctly ruled out for offside, Murray’s last minute header had gone in against Newcastle and we'd held on a couple more minutes against spurs, we'd have finished 15th. But the season would have been fundamentally the same.

      Small margins down there and we finished at the bottom end of our potential points range. Plenty of reasonable scenarios where we have cruised into 13th place and not played any different.

      Blimey - Balogun's 31?! Anyone else think he was a bit more of a whippersnapper?
      Kayal is 31 is more of a surprise

      Exactly a sentiment expressed on TalkSport the other week. Glenn has done so well for us but is surely someone we should only be turning to in an emergency now. Even a much more mobile Jermaine Defoe is no longer deemed Premier League standard now. It's all about pace and Albion need more in almost every position to progress
