Re: Will going down be a bad thing? poll added.

The only good thing about down for me would be playing at Gillingham (assuming they stay up). As for the suggestion about going back up, in my time as a fan we've generally spent 4 years in a division (in the FL) before going up or down, and currently it will be 6 years. I did read an interesting de...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

League Two is hard for young defenders because clubs aren't prepared to take a risk on them. Dickie and Shyam found that out the hard way. A non-league loan to a local club is less risky and probably means they get more game time. Shokunbi is one of those who isn't going to get in the U23 team any ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

McCleary and Harriott both started and played the full 90 mins for the u23s at the Mad Stad against Southampton today. Surprising given all the praise he's had on this thread that Osho only on the bench, where he was joined by Barrett interestingly (who played the final 10 mins). Won 2-0, Loader and...

Re: Ex players goals

Been a good weekend for ex players scoring. Apart from Sweeney's cracker for Exeter, Simon Cox scored for Southend and James Henry scored for Oxford.

Then to top it off, Carrico scored for Sevilla today!

Re: Reading v Norwich Match 10 Prediction League

Hmmmmm tricky one.....Might come down to earth with a bang. Good result for Norwich at the weekend. Worrying that if they broke down a Pullis team, and kept a clean sheet, what will they do with our defence. Could be tight....Though again with Norwich you don't know what your gonna get sometimes......

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Is Callum Harriot right up there with one of our most injury prone players ever? thought he was going to kick on this season after his injury nightmare last year. think he played minutes in pre-season, now gone again, waste of fcuking space. He played an hour in the last reserves game... And also p...

You may have all missed this but David Prutton of Skysports prediction fame for the first time all season has predicted that we will win....

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

for the first goal, that was never a foul in a million years. Awful play from the #12, leaned into Swift, bent over and then stopped still looking at the ref. Kind of thing I've come to expect of Aluko or Gunter on a particularly poor day File it under "seen em given" the ref could easiĺy...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

Just from the highlights, couple of nice bits of play by Swift I don’t mind him and Bacuna in the middle - have a bit of dynamism and creativity about them. Be interested to see how Kelly played Lovely bit of play by Sims on the third - laid it on a plate. That bit of play by their #12 on their fir...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Great thread. A few years ago my personal circumstances changed and so I don't plan to go to as many games as I used to. I've only been to two games since Stam came (although there were numerous games that I wanted to go to but couldn't for whatever reason - though for balance I was lucky to go to a...

You got my hopes up! Saw them play my local team last season and was looking for when they were due to play them this season, had no luck and then remembered they won promotion last season and are now step 3.

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Thought Gabriel Osho had an outstanding game On Saturday. just turned 20 a few days ago, i can see him breaking into the 1st team squad soon. Agreed. We have at least 4 really promising young centrebacks. Entirely possible that before too long we might have a back 5 entirely composed of Academy pro...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Hard to see how Barrett could have ‘outgrown’ the U23 squad, he’s only just turned 20 ! He’s far from the outstanding player in the squad and if anything I would say his problem is he’s not really matured as a player. As has been said, he has some great skills but you can’t see a manager taking a r...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Interesting comments about Barrett. Watching the 2nd half of the International Cup game that I posted about I was actually impressed with his work rate and it was something that was picked up in commentary too. Do feel though that unless he can force himself onto the bench this season or have a succ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Finished 2-0 Loader won a penalty and had it saved 5 mins from the end. Few quick thoughts. Think it was Micky Adams co-commentating. Southwood was in goal and Sidoel came on for Coleman midway through the 2nd half. From that point on we were in control and should have won by more. Hard to believe w...
