Re: Sam Baldock

18 goals and 9 assists in 5878 minutes for anyone wondering which is a goal or assist every 218 minutes making him slightly better than Pogrebnyak at g/a every 225 minutes for us and much better than Blackman with g/a every 234 minutes. Happy? No. Not at all. Sam Baldock is coming to the club. If a...

Re: Summer Transfers

Exactly what I'm hearing, free transfers were agreed with a few clubs, but VDB wanted paid the difference in his Reading contract and the new contract. Reading also aren't prepared to subsidise too much of his wages for him to go on loan. Been told he will train with the u23s if he doesn't move bef...

Re: Sam Baldock

Really really average, really really underwhelming.

I don't blame Clement, I like him and I think he has a long job on his hands to fix the mess, but it's quite clear from these bang average/dross signings that it's going to take time. Thank god I don't have a season ticket for next year.

Re: George Evans

he'll be ooc at the end of the season anyway, so prob wouldn't hang around He is just the sort of player we need to trim from the squad (just not good enough) rather than hang onto in the forlorn hope he might come good. Amen. When I see teams like Forest spending £13m on Benfica midfielders while ...

Re: Summer Transfers

I expect with Joey we’ll end up paying some of his wages still - basically anything to get rid. Terrible decision to extend him last season Oh god I had forgotten we did that! What awful business that is. It is fairly clear when you look at the extension of both him and Yann that behind the scenes ...

Re: Summer Transfers

We have been trying to offload JVDB though by all accounts. Who can blame other clubs for not wanting the bloke, utter liability . Apparently some clubs want him but his wages are too high. How much are we paying him!? If it is any more than a tenner a week it is too much . I reckon he is on a tidy...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Coming soon....it's only three weeks until the season starts and all the new signings have had their photo's taken with the old shirt. We say it every season but it's a shambles. Surely they're doing themselves out of so much money from sales? What's the reason? Maybe it's because they know most Re...

Re: Jordan Rhodes

I know a Blackburn fan who told me that even when Rhodes was banging them in for them the fans were never 100% behind him. He was always considered by them to be someone who could get into the perfect position to finish off a move but was not a team player and was very lazy. They rated that other c...

It could almost work with second team aswell --------------------------------Jaakola ------------Andresson-----oshea-----------Blackett Gunter ---------------------Bacuna----------------------Obita Really interesting to see you put him in the second team. Is that what we think Clement is going to do?
