Re: Gourlay

Shirt sponsorship is down to carabao having a veto on other visible sponsors due to the contract as primary partners. Looks like the Thai's stiffed us on that one. I don’t think that’s true, I’m pretty sure we’ve had sponsors on the back the last few seasons (Cherwell?) Exactly. And there was Euro ...

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

He put in some good shifts there in the U18s when he was 15. But he's had another growth spurt since then and I'm not sure he's as fleet footed any more. But it could be worth a try. I just remember he used to. Wouldn't use him there these days. I don't think he's better than either Osho or McIntyr...

Video of him in a reading jersey on Danny loader’s story in a number 48 reading shirt. Do we have a number 48? Medford-Smith?

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

Cracking start for him at the higher level. Yep but I really do get the feeling we will never see him in a Reading shirt again. I fear you're right. Although there's a not tiny chance we could get relegated and lose one or both of Baldock and Bod. Nova might also prove too good for us at that point...

Re: Club developed players

In mid August after the success of the World Cup there was stuff going around that the EFL are/were considering proposals for matchday 18s to have a minimum of 14 home grown players and 7 club developed in the 18 by 2023. 5 years to phase in if approved - would be looking for EPL to go alongside too...

Re: Danny Loader

If I was PC I'd be looking to offer him a new 2/3 year deal now. Presumably the club have sat down with him and told him where he is currently with regard to the first team and what he needs to do get the opportunities. If he takes that on board and makes inroads to those requirements he'll have a ...

Re: Danny Loader

One year left on his contract and not happy here by some accounts. Believes he should be playing. Won't be shocked to see him leave. Would be annoyed to, mind. Deserved a chance. McNulty made sense, but we didn't need both him and Baldock, should have had Novakovich and Loader for the fringe / bench.

Oh I'd never play Gunter again if I thought I had a viable alternative. But with Blackett injured and McShane done, there's not a lot of choice for a third centre back, and if you're going to play wing backs you need three centre backs Wasn't that why we signed O'Shea?

At least we seemed to have a plan, an approach (even if people didn't like it) that filtered through the squad, a plan for academy players and chances.
