Re: Palace(H) friendly Saturday July 28th

Go into the season expecting a relegation fight. Show some character and suck it up, the job to turn us around is going to take at least two seasons. We need to trim the squad and make it healthy again. We've started doing that, don't bottle it now because of one bad pre-season result. This is the ...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

yep just seen the chronicle article. Very dubious about anything they say, but think 250k would be less than I'd want/expect for him. 500-750k would be nearer the mark Not sure about that. We're lucky to get anything for him. He adds no value . Next let's get shot of John Swift Assume that is a jok...

Absolutely - watched him a few times when he was at Exeter and he looked more than capable - not at all surprised he has done well there.

Also like the look of the lad Storey who has just moved to Preston today.

Re: CONFIMRED - John O’shea signs for Reading

So, we have signed 3 solid proven pro's, 2 of them captain's. All 3 are/have been. Elphick would make 4 if he signs. Looks more and more like a Coppell squad. Though now there's a good crop of youngsters to nuture. The off the field influence is equally important. Clement does seem to be going to b...

Re: RUMOUR- John O’shea set to sign for Reading

Regardless of why, this is about as inspiring as gluten free ryvita. The thought of him actually lining up for us is too hard to bare. Agree - At least when Weiser signed there was that 'he's from Liechtenstein' I wonder how good he is / could be mystery? If O'Shea signs, right now cannot actually ...

Re: RUMOUR- John O’shea set to sign for Reading

Found myself thinking of us starting with a central defensive pairing of McShane and O'Shea... did a little shudder... Agree with the comment about any aspiring promotion team would not have him in their squad... What happened to Reading signing aspiring young hungry players like Kitson, Doyle, Long...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Sounds like a sensible signing given our ambitions at the moment. He'll probably move between LB and RB cover for most of next season before fully replacing Gunter the one after. Next on the target list is someone in midfield who can make things happen and a decent striker. He's 26 and signed a 4 y...

Re: Strikers.

For me Kermit could be interesting. Written off by many this year and can see why. But he had no pre-season and is 35. But he seems the type that give him a good summer off and get him fit for the season, his natural hunger for the game could surprise a few next season. Not to be a pendant, but he ...

Re: Strikers.

One worry I have for next season in terms of strikers is Bod. Likely to go to the World Cup. So will get next to no pre-season and was not great for Wolves the season after the euro's, so how will he be next season? Look at Swift this season. Was great for us last year, looked sharp and skilful. We ...

Do they change the size of the goal...if not then they defo should.

Apparently the record low for a LEAGUE game at Elm Park was 1934 v Bradford in 1991 then 1943 v Preston in 1982 but I always thought the Preston game was the record with 1732 fans Anyone able to confirm? In the book "Biscuits and Royals" by David Downs it states lowest attendance at Elm p...

I must admit I tend to sit on the underwhelmed at losing Danny Williams side of the fence... No doubt he was very good at the end of the season... But where was he in the seasons before? Also for a central midfield player who drives forward his goal scoring record is not great. His control and pass ...
