Re: Clement

Pretty much this. So many scouts out there - word gets out if anyone is decent watching. Also the parent has a key role to play, putting him up with advanced football centres who often play matches against professional run teams etc. In general, the cream get identified. Exactly,my lad is 6 and wit...

Re: Clement

to be honest, they cast the net quite wide already in the academy/Development squads, at least within the Greater Reading area (is that a thing?)

Re: The Non - League thread

Draw made for 4th qualifying round of FA Cup today. Quite a few local sides still left. Maidenhead have a tough away game probably at Chippenham. Winchester have a plum away trip to Torquay although they may have fancied a home tie I have tickets for a Tom Robinson gig in Southampton that Saturday,...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

QPR hit with £42m fine and January transfer embargo for breaching FFP https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/44980113 Not quite a $42m fine, which would have been better. Basically its a $17m fine and the shareholders write off $22m owed to them. Am I right in thinking the fine is then dished out to ...

Re: Sam Baldock

Fairly well respected at Brighton. Seen as a 'top' Championship striker. Certainly better than anything we've got at the moment. Would be interesting to see how Jon Dadi comes back after the World Cup After being on the big stage i quite fancy he'll step up and give us a few extra goals this season...

And the ********* about in non-league at Steps 3 & 4 continues. Out of nowhere Shaw Lane have resigned from the Evostik Northern League due to a failure to find investment. So rather than just deciding to play that league with one team less and deal with the gap next year the leagues have decid...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I quite like those but as you said, they'll be nothing like the templates Puma give us. Palace's template is likely to be used for at least one of our kits, and that's not particularly offensive so I won't be too bothered.
