Re: Next Season's Squad.

Based in u23s alone I'd say Howe has a lot more to him than Watson. Watson's unsuccessful loan doesn't do him any favours either. Watson seems to have the same issue as Gunters, stands off too much

If he's as shit as the last player we got from Colchester, no issues with that.

Whore Jackie Credible source says he's already left Reading.


The one that just confirmed he's signing a new deal?

Re: Promotion team 'must haves'

Armadillo Roadkill Loan players were once considered a hindrance. I notice that has changed in the second half of this season.


Never seen such a group of committed loanees who also added quality. It's usually one or the other and in small numbers.

Amazing recruitment: great players, awesome people.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Nope, no surprises. Legg maybe? But I guess the club rate Southwood & Ward higher. Cam Green and Khalid Simmo perhaps. But not really. Biggest surprise is how Stevens appears to have aged 30 years in his time here. Wouldn't be surprised to see Ward out the door too this summer. Has another year...

Re: BFT(final)G

I wonder if it's a confidence thing, I know lots of players do read team boards (albeit in a different sport), and the constant (often unearned) shellacking he gets on here from a few suspects may make him focus on just trying to be a traditional RB, rather than the tireless RWB role that he excels...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

I thought Joorabchian was only involved in the appointment of Gomes as his agency deals almost exclusively with Portugese and Brazilian based clubs and players and if the owners were determined to go Portugese, to be fair, he is an expert on that market. I reckon every loanee was on the radar to so...

Re: FFplay

From Despair To Where? Mannone's contract is up next summer and I believe Minnesota have an option to buy.
loan expires January - they have option to buy he or leaves on a free in the summer.

Re: BFT(final)G

I believe Ejaria and Baker had relatively hard times at other clubs they've been loaned to. They have little chance of regular 1st team action at Liverpool and Chelsea, so maybe their parent clubs would be happy for a full season loan with us next season as they look as though could be regulars for...

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Today he seemed more confident, stronger, trickier, happier to get stuck in and do the defensive work. That goal or the fact this wasn't a pressure game, or a combination of both helped a lot.
