Whether we were overconfident of deals going through on deadline day, or whether it was just plain stupidity that saw us loan out Tommy Elphick to Hull City and leave ourselves even weaker in the heart of defence is open for debate.

Rumours linking us with a return for John Terry have gone into overdrive, fuelled by his own social media hints about him maybe being on the verge of doing a deal with a club for another 12 months of football, but this week saw a more left-field suggestion come up.

Former West Ham United centre-half James Collins.

Now, everyone knows what Collins is about and a number of West Ham fans were disappointed to see him move on despite his advanced years. You could even possibly argue we got some of the best years of his career out of him – but I can’t be the only one to remember the end of his time with us.

Few were sorry to see him go.

  • I remember perfectly what went on at the end of his previous stint, or at least the side of the story we were given. Maybe he’s older and wiser because all of the noises out of Wet Spam are that hes a positive influence on the dressing room. Given where we are right now and our lack of a physical centre half to partner Chester I think he’d be a great addition. His relationship with the other welsh lads in the squad is an added plus.
    Don’t think folks need to worry though. If it was going to happen it would have happened by now

  • My gut feeling leads me to feel Terry left at the right time. Yes, he might do a job, but I feel the years are catching him up. To my mind Chester usually trumped Terry for performance game to game last term. Maybe Huth would offer a bit more aerial strength, which would perhaps blend better with Chester’s qualities.

    I am sure I read Bruce is actually after at least another four free agents to bolster his meagre ranks. A source close to the club has indicated Andy Lockhead is very close to re-signing.

    On that daft note, I bid you all goodnight!

  • The latest news snippets suggest Terry may be off to Russia to ply his trade.

    In a perverse way, I am glad if this happens because it deprives Bruce of another opportunity to paper over the cracks of his error ridden tenure. On the other hand, I want the best for the club. Maybe Robert Huth, if still unattached to a side, will move up the manager’s roster of options.

    If no one comes in, I would quite fancy giving Bree a run alongside Chester. Tuanzebe is another option and I imagine Bruce is committed to play him regularly. However, I hasn’t impressed me particularly so far.
