I can't really see why the sudden outburst about McCarthy. Yes - he is a decent finisher - but he is rarely in the right place these days anyway. He is frequently off-side, he has no pace - and IMO is

McCarthy has only himself to blame for his lack of match time this season. He returned to the club clearly overweight after a summer of excess, was plainly unfit at the start of the season and since

Robbie Savage has said this on his column in the Mirror: Benni is a great striker who would score plenty of goals and keep West Ham up. But - how shall I put this - he's a bit laid back sometimes. I

Sorry I thought you suggested the midfield had played so well Dunn shouldn't be back in the team.

Not at all mate. Although the midfield was an improvement to a midfield partly consisting of Andrews, I'd love to see Dunny & Reid in midfield tonight with Benni & Nicko up front and with Junior and Bert on the wings we could be in business.

I'd go with the same team that started against FUlham for the first 50 minutes and then take it from there. Dunn in central midfield isn't an option for me, he doesn't really have the legs to command the middle of the park. He's far better playing in the 'hole' behind the striker and infront of the midfield.

I'd like to try him in midfield and see what he has (Dunn this is). For me dunn being fit last week was a hinderance to us as he was useless and Benni would have offered more imo

Benni has to start tonight he's in the shop window and on national TV I'm sure he'll want to impress.

I agree but I can tell you now (before the teams have been announced) that Benni will not start tonight. This manager does not think he is a team player and he rates Dunny.

Just my opinion.

No idea if a bid has been made or not, regardless I would not sell him to anyone in the bottom half of the Premier League as it will just make them stonger. Even if we got £2 million or even £2.5 million, we won't be able to get someone of Benni's quality. I am fan of his so am baised, I agree that he is not the perfect professional but against Fulham he showed that he still he can have a positive impact.

It's not just your opinion kamy, it's mine too. :rover:

Be a pity if he does not start with or use Bennie tonight. As this could be his last game for Rovers and hopefully he'll want to play ablinder - he may also wish to make up WHU's minds up for them, and get them to cough up the money being asked.

I think he's on his way. He blatantly played like he was making sure he didn't get injured tonight. Given the performance of the team as a whole, I think we should get whatever we can for Mccarthy, Roberts and Pedersen and make the savings from the wage bill. We have young replacements who could benefit from the experience and make us stronger for next season.

I think he's on his way but I'd rather he wasn't.

Now he can go, Kalinic showed tonight if he is given a decent run in the side he will score goals. But who to partner him is the question. I still want to see if Di Santo and Kalinic can play together - before I write off Di santo.

Lancashire Telegraph report that they believe that West Ham are interestedm with a bid of £1.2 million being made, however the Telgraph understands that Rovers want at least double that before we will even consider selling him.

unintesested tonight. Never challanged for the ball. Slow, fat. Kalinic and Di Santo up front please

I don't think Di Santo is the answer either. Luckily Kalinic is finding his form and settling in. We'd be in trouble if we had to depend on Benni.

Get West Ham up to at least the £2m mark then let him go providing we can bring in a replacement. We are not going to get a player with the same experience or potential creativity but we may get someone who's fit and willing to put in a shift.

£3m is the price I believe.

As for striker partners - Id like to see Hoilett given a chance alongside Kalinic, his pace means it only requires one good ball to him and we are in with a great chance of scoring.

Hmm, problem I have with Hoilett is that he does not seem to have much of a shot on him, or a cross. If I was Sam I would be looking to start Kalinic and McCarthy regularly together. THey compliment each other well.

Hoilett should be reserved as an impact sub on the wings I think.
