Re: Mentor for Stam/Turnaround consultant

So what you're suggesting is we get Curbishley in to assist until the end of the season?

I'm sold.

Free agents?

Having seen the Phillip Wollscheid thread made me think about who is out there. Anyone got a decent full list? If we did want a left back would Benoit Tremoulinas or Guilherme Siqueira be out of the bounds of reality? Only 32, 31 respectively and played at higher levels than us. Both have been injur...

Throw in Micah Richards as well on loan for good measure. (Hasn't played a first team game for Villa for 480 days and counting)

After seeing the announcement video he did for West Ham I'm glad we didn't sign him. Hopefully the Met Police will be knocking on his door soon. So noncey.

Is it the same source that said Reading bid £9m for him only for the Reading end to say it's not true.

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

I go watch Dulwich quite often. He's on fire, but nowhere near as good as Daniel Carr was. You may recall we released Carr, he went to Dulwich Hamlet then was one you guys lost your shit over when he was sold to Huddersfield (as one that got away). Carr didn't pull up any trees in the league, went b...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Perservering with the style is the way forward. Going to take time to build the squad to achieve it though. Much depends on bringing youngsters up through the ranks playing the Reading way. Not just academy, but players from lower leagues with potential. Well that's BT's vision. Stam's done a prett...
