Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

How long ago were these old days when we didn’t sell players ? Were they the days when we didn’t sell Adie Williams and Scott Taylor ? Or the days we didn’t sell Laurie Sanchez and Neil Webb ? You seem to be railing against life as it has always been .... As for the empty seats, people don’t come pr...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Would you swop loader for Martinez with arsenal ? Yes. Three times over. If there was a couple of million on top to cover Martinez wages for the next couple of years and a sell on clause yes. TBH it would not help us FFP wise but under these circumstances yes I would. I think also this maybe away o...

Re: Value the Squad

This isn't the first summer where there has been interest in Loader. He's been more reluctant to sign a new deal than some of our other young players because... well I'm not going to put motivations in his head, but for whatever reason he is unconvinced of the benefits of a long-term contract at Re...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Moved Reading from 23rd to 20th. Premier League clubs now want him. Seems legit. :roll: :lol: Did a great job turning round our fortunes, though we shouldn’t forget he was supported in Jan better than any other relegation threatened club manager (4 prem players + Nelson) Clubs around us think we bo...

Re: Financial Fair Play

I really wonder what is in it for the current owners. I guess when you are so ridiculously wealthy that it doesn't matter then you can do stuff that doesn't make financial sense. Perhaps Dai Yongge is one of these compulsive business men who just likes taking on a challenge much like some of us mig...

Re: Spaculation Henri Lansbury

Heard through the grapevine, Henri Lansbury is being offered out from Villa on a 2 year loan and we maybe suitors. Apparently doesn't fit into plans at Villa and there are 2 or 3 ahead of him. If Villa get promoted his wages increase to nearly 60k a week due to bonuses. he is being touted to clubs ...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Haven't we basically outsourced the old DofF role ? Not sure have we, is this through this agent we now have links with?? No, it's Kia Jaroobchian who by all accounts brought the loan players in and has been involved in other ways too. Would not be surprised to hear he ended up taking a stake in th...

Things I have learnt from the software development trenches (1) Clients are idiots (2) Project managers are idiots (3) Migration is always shit, (4) It's never obvious how badly shit the migration is until it's too late (5) Clients and project managers think migration should be straightforward.

Re: Speculation: New manager

Say José Gomes goes, who would you want to bring in as a replacement. Chris Hughton could be a shout Surely Hughton will they WBA or Boro jobs. The whole Gomes thing seems very sketchy so speculating who might replace him if he happens to move seems very premature. If the Yongge’s decide to sell wh...

Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Edit: add in how well he worked all of the loanees and U23’s into a failing team and like I say, he’s the complete package. That was good fortune. Let's see how he does at the beginning of next season. Particularly if the next crop of loanees (i.e. Steve Clarke era) don't work out so well. If that ...

Re: Dare to dream?

would be delighted to get Martinez but think a solid centre back pairing (ie Miazga) and solid midfield (ie Baker) are at least as important.
One at a time.....

Re: Value the Squad

Have just re-read the O.P. and it has led to some mildly interesting discussion. I think the views of Pete on values are in many instances way off beam. I think he has failed to take into account that our squad consists of players just above Div 1 level and that is how they and our club is perceive...
