Re: Summer Transfers

Bit of a shame as I think he's potentially a good player but we do have too many central midfielders and he's probably keen to play 30+ games which he's unlikely to do here.

Re: Summer Transfers

Someone I know spoke to a current player at the weekend and basically said that he loved Jaap Stam but can't say the same for Paul Clement. He also said that youth will not get much a chance under Clement and that it is all about experience and the "older" players....so John O'Shea and Da...

Re: Strikers.

In Baldocks best ever championship season he scored 11 in 31 games for a team who finished second and scored 74 goals. Last season bodvarsson scored 7 in 27 for a team who stayed up on the last day and scored 48 in total. Not sure he's a massive upgrade :roll: What about assists? Or creating opport...

Re: Rival Watch

Not seen quite as much of ostersunds fk over the last few years as I would have liked so don't know too much about this guy.

What kind of football will he get Swansea playing?

Re: Rumour - Michael Krmenčík

Just don't see the point of this type of signing when we have someone like Andrija Novakovich scoring goals regularly in a similar league. Rather money goes on a proven English striker or creative midfielder etc. Has novakovic scored 7 in 13 at international level? Has novakovic scored 4 in 8 in th...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Id try to get rid of 3 of : van den berg, edwards, Evans, Kelly, swift
Then bring in a good all round midfielder and a good striker.
Maybe romaine sawyers or George saville. I liked the look of kasey Palmer too

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

shamelessly stolen from that Talk Reading chap, but apparently Reading have 6 players in the England U16 squad. Pretty impressive stuff. Any talk of closing down or downgrading any part of the academy in the event of relegation should be shot down immediately We don't have any players in the curren...

Re: who do you want as the new manager

Not sure about this, hopefully he'll carry on the work Stam has done with integrating the academy players into the first team squad. His record at Derby was pretty poor, took over a team that finished 8th under McLaren then signed: Bradley Johnson, Tom ince, butterfield, shackle, weimann, Blackman, ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Chris Martin (loan)

When was the last time we loaned a striker who was successful in scoring many goals for us? I can think of Grabban and Vydra being the last two obvious loan strikers - we know how well that went, then Afobe is the only other that springs immediately to mind. I've probably forgotten someone obvious ...

Re: Stam blames poor past management

Maybe he's talking about th £15m loss we made the season before he took over and since then we've stopped receiving parachute payments? Or the fact we had a wage bill of almost double the likes of Leeds and Ipswich?

We got our money back for Fae and Halford. Obviously it would have been better to get great players. We probably won't get our money back for Aluko or Ilori. New contracts until 2020 for Osho and McIntyre. Missed that one yesterday Haven't seen McIntyre, but Osho looked a good prospect I can't reme...

1. Not too bothered about a striker but would like a cb, maybe on loan to cover for ilori and mcshanes inevitable injuries
