Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

Don’t think any player who has been put for a year can be in anyone’s plans. Will need to get back into training and play 6 or 7 u23 games before he’ll be on the radar properly. His aim will be to be part of the squad for preseason. If we don’t go up Gunter may be tempted to grab a chance in the lo...

Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

We’ve often given a player an extra 12 months contract if they have had a bad injury, would be disappointed if we don’t offer him this. He can then try and force his way into Jaap’s plans.

Re: Why doesn't the MadStad host concerts and music events?

If you thought the Elton John gig was excellent I can only assume you have exceedingly low standards ! He may as well have walked on stage , stuck a Greatest Hits cd on and then sat in an armchair and nodded along to them. My fault for wasting money on a ticket but he has got a decent back catalogue...

Re: Postponement tomorrow?

They will have gritters on the roads round the stadium and all the surrounds. If somehow there was ice on the steps inside the ground that might be tricky but they’ve dealt with this sort of problem before.

Aaron was injured whilst on trial at Aldershot (TCL) . Won't be back until well into New Year. He's not really played for 2 + years now. Unfortunately can't see him playing pro football again.

Re: Who will make it and who won't?h

With Omar Richards recently signing a new deal after his impressive performance and the U23s on the upturn after a change of manager, who will make the step from the academy to be a valuable asset in the first team? Players like Richards, Barrett, Rinomhota and Watson are almost certain to make it,...

Doubt any of those first Teamers will be started Monday then Bit of a disappointing performance in many ways, although Bayern were very good and losing to what should be the cream of young German talent.

Re: Why doesn't the MadStad host concerts and music events?

There have been several music events, but from what I understand they are hardly worth doing. Promoters want revenue guarantees so the venue effectively carries the risk of poor ticket sales, the promoter doesn’t hire the venue, they just license their artist to the venue for a concert. The window f...

Re: Record Watch 2017/18

Well the 13 wins from the start of a league season is safe for another year after only 6 games. Only just thanks to Everton in City's second game of the season! No ‘only just’ about it ! It’s an absolute and they didn’t win half as many a season we did ! Remember we ‘only just’ didn’t win 14 on the...

Re: Record Watch 2017/18

Wasn’t overly impressed by Wolves when we played them, but they seem to be able to not play that well and still pick up points, a useful skill ! They look to have some significant weaknesses - the defence looks vulnerable with the big donkey (Boly) very weak and the keeper less than commanding. We d...

Re: Reading FC Womens World

I'd be surprised if the Women's team cost more than £1m a year to run. Fara Williams may, as a top earner, be on something like £30,000-40,000 a year, Kelly Chambers maybe something similar but there's only about 20 players in the squad and I doubt there's many earning more than £20,000 a year. Wou...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wolverhampton Wanderers (h) sponsored by the search for a Saturday home win

Ambiguity issue !

I interpreted the OP as two players each worth more than our squad, not added together. I suspect we’ve played quite a few teams in recent years who’s two most expensive players cost more than our whole squad as the cost of our squad has rocketed in the last 12 months.
