Re: Summer Transfers

Name one top-class, proven championship striker who has moved for £20m. Maybe £20m was a slight exaggeration, but I reckon the best Championships strikers are in that ball park. Wolves paid £18m for Traoré yesterday. Assombalonga joined Middlesbrough for £15m last year. And i'm not even sure you co...

Re: Summer Transfers

Watching SSN just now and they were going through Brightons transfer deals in and out over the summer and they were showing £5m fee for Baldock!!...surely not?? ...if so then we should definitely hold out for the full £15m for Moore Think it has been discussed on here already. Fee is 2.5m upfront. ...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

If he wants to play in the PL then moving to Brighton was not a good option. He would have never been a regular starter there.

Re: How many players will we bring in?

Seeing that Fulham have signed Bristol City's left back for £6m - if that's the kind of cash we need for a half decent person to take that position I say we priorities on that.

Re: Club up for sale again?

Yes, the 2mill interest is also 16/17. If, as suggested, it was on money lent by the Chinese, who didn't own the club at that point, maybe we are no longer paying that level of interest now that they own the club (i.e., interest free loans from them, like wot SJM did) We'll see, when the figures fo...

Re: Club up for sale again?

I am going to assume this interest is on the £60m loan that was lent to us by the Chinese?? However the whole tweet is a little more interesting and shows we are doing good business elsewhere. https://twitter.com/SwissRamble/status/1016950050369556482 This is dated season 16/17 fwiw.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

I am generally an optimist, but I’m surprised to see so much positivity about last night and I can’t relate to it. To me, all last night showed was that we have got into the habit of losing matches, and it is very worrying. Agreed, we played well until we scored the scored the goal, but the collaps...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I honestly think this is a bad move for Moore. He's clearly a player that needs regular first team action and he won't get that at Brighton. Sure, you get to be a Premier League player on Premier League wage, but at some point you have to care about being a footballer.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Would it really? I suspect that there are two/three different types of buyer: Those who would buy the new shirt at virtually any price regardless. Those who won't fork out ridiculous amounts just to have the latest shirt and wait to buy the old shirts at a good discount. Those who do both. I doubt ...

Re: John Terry?

For any transfer you have to ask 3 questions - 1. Would the player want to come? Yes. I think Terry would welcome another season at championship level and more wages. Reading would be a good location for him, especially if he still has links in London. 2. Would the club want him? Yes. If Reading are...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Asked in the megastore today if they had any of the old shirts and was told they're not on sale anymore. Hoping they will come back on sale once the 'buzz' of the new shirts has died down. Surely Puma wouldn't buy left overs back? Has the club every sold off old shirts cheap at the same time as new...

Re: Relegation

I think PC has put together a team which can at least grind out results this year. Its vital we stop conceding silly goals though, which is why Moore's replacement is pretty crucial, as McShane just seems to make so many misjudgements or moments of lost concentration. I like Ilori and Yiadom a lot ...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

Thought we were all in agreement it was the management's fault not the players? The players are a decent bunch, yes Moore was our best player, and last season was unexpected. To expect the same level of performance from this lot again is a bit naive. I agree we aren't looking like a promotion winni...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

Nothing wrong with a business bringing in £10 million. The problem is that this firm is in the business of winning football matches and selling your top asset from a group that so nearly got relegated last season will make things harder - further investment in players is desperately needed.

Re: If McDermott hadn't been sacked (the 2nd time)

With respect, people seem to forget how mind shreddingly awful we were in McDermott's second spell. Slightly bemused by the suggestion that in one transfer window, he could have arrested the decline that had failed to arrest in 6 months managing the team. The club is struggling to climb out of a sp...
