Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Desperately want us to get rid of Baldock, Mannone, Walker, McShane, Meyler, O'Shea and McNulty. Yep the squad remains bloated. I can see us selling McNulty at a cut price to Sunderland. Surely a third tier promotion chasing side would be interested in taking Baldock on loan even if we have to pay ...

Re: BBC Berks - Portuguese striker to join in next 24 hours

One that got away for me. Thought we had a proper player on our hands. He was absolutely sh!t. And probably on a king's ransom too No way John, Sa was excellent. He had a fire in his belly that no striker has had since for us. He was aggressive and always caused oppostion defenders problems, was mo...

Anthony Smith dropping yet another bollock with a Tweet about the Flackwell Heath away game despite being postponed hours ago. Does he go? Game officially called off @ 5:03 Smith's tweet sent @ 5:25 Not what I would call hours and likely to be a scheduled tweet, but I guess you knew that. A.Smith s...

Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

I saw Gary O'Neil come close and they had several other chances. What you also must remember is WBA are a better side than us. Not sure what the last part of your response means. What you must remember is if their most potent option is Gary O'Neil then they are diabolical. And they are. Their defen...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

I just saw that Ashley Cole has joined Derby. I know people are going to disagree - but that's exactly the sort of signing we should have made. If he's fit enough for Derby for half a season then he would have been a excellent cover at left-back until Obita returns. He might have also added some co...

Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

Bolton is by no means a given. Having watched some of the game last night they did cause WBA a few problems. They didn't, they were abysmal. Hi DD/Kes btw. I saw Gary O'Neil come close and they had several other chances. What you also must remember is WBA are a better side than us. Not sure what th...

Re: Bolton away

Nah it will be a comfortable victory. I cannot believe nobody can see how our new style is going to blow the lesser sides out of the water, especially with Oliveira leading the line. We will go up there and get a 2 or 3 nil victory. Yes, it will be an easy win for us in the end and probably be the ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

How big an impact does extra time have, do we think? A lot of the time when you think a team is going to be leggy it actually works in their favour because they have the momentum and would have trained anyway, albeit not quite to that intensity.

I am still confident of a draw.
