Re: Season 2018/2019

I do feel Ipswich will struggle, I was under the impression that Mick McCarthy always had them pushing above their weight and they will regret sacking him.

Re: Fixtures

Are Birmingham the most northern side in the southern half of the draw? I would never remotely consider them a southern team but I suppose it just shows how many more northern teams there are in the football league. West Brom Yeah, I had a little look myself, Norwich seem to be slightly further Nor...

Re: Rumour - Ronan Curtis

tbh he sounds like a bellend "I'd rather play in League 1" :lol: why? Makes sense to me. The jump from LOI to Championship can be difficult, and if it takes a season to get up to speed it's a waste of a year. Go to L1 and he's much more likely to get in the squad straight away. I can see ...

Re: SPECULATION - MOHAMED EISA

Big jump from League 2... I'd want to see evidence of quality over more than two seasons if we want someone to jump two divisions. I'd rather give Nova, Smith, Loader and Bod some faith than pay £1m for a guy off the back of one very good season in L2. STOP POSTING ABOUT THESE PLAYERS - THEY AREN'T...

Re: CONFIMRED - John O’shea signs for Reading

I presume we are still in for Elphick but will only sign him if Moore leaves. I see us therefore starting the new season weaker at centre back if this all pans out. If Moore leaves then that's a given but the upside of selling Moore is that it should allow us to strengthen the team overall. Frankly...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

If we get a decent offer we should sell, we can get a Championship quality replacement and still have much leftover to improve the squad which will be far more beneficial to our goals of getting promoted.

Re: Summer Transfers

seems our friends from Brighton have also noticed Paddy McNair is a handy player. Apparently had a bid rejected. Sunderland paid £5.5m, he's one of the few players that came out of last season with any credit and is still only 23 and Brighton offered £2m. Considering they supposedly only bid £3m fo...

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

If anyone was tempted to watch the League Two Play-off final for Josh Barrett, he didn't even make the bench, not been a good season for him, sent out on loan to get game time and if Wikipedia is accurate, only made 8 appearances in League and Cup.

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I think it all depends on how you define replaceable, we can replace him with another centre back, there's no doubt in that at all, but one of a similar quality? Nope, can't see it, the scouting team deserves a lot of credit for not only identifying Moore but also pursuing him as strongly as they di...

Good signing but reportedly another 4 year deal... will we ever learn?

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

Echo the sentiments of those supporting the ticket prices, I will add that I can understand the concerns of those, myself included, who have actually ended up paying more this season due to the lack of an early renewal saving, that said, we are still one of, if not, the lowest season tickets in the ...
