Good job we’re not planning on playing Watts in goal any time soon then....

Re: Brian Teverden

No chance proved by the fact we haven't signed a single dutch winger. Under teverenden did we do exactly that ? Sign a single Dutch winger . Roy Beerens, Pelle Clement can technically play there too so yes we did. So we did, as I suggested, sign a single Dutch winger. Glad we are on the same page !

Re: Brian Teverden

Tevrenden is still part of the overall management team of the owners so quite possible Gomes has spoken to him to get thoughts on options.

Re: New Keeper

Well, I've seen him play once. He was atrocious, far worse than any Reading keeper I've seen in the last 20 years. May have improved since. Suspect that one time was a bit of a freak game ! I’ve certainly never seen another game like it. Reading one of the arsenal fan sites their thoughts seem to b...

Re: Is Kelly off?

We need to start offloading somebody The Gomes squad trimming has actually increased our squad size so far :) Hopefully we can bin the transfer listed players sooner rather than later 3 loan players in. Popa, Clement, Edwards gone Another 4 (?) not training with the first team. Presumably Gomes’ ai...

Re: Nick Blackman...

I sometimes despair of Nobbers Blackman was mostly a winger yet scored 22 goals for us in 5,823 minutes which is a goal every 264.7 minutes, better than 1 in 3 games His goals-or-assists in one every 216 minutes played AND we made 2 million profit when we sold him.

Re: Rumour - Joel Pereira

Probably a question of priorities.
Gomes made it clear recruitment was dependent on how we sit in terms of FFP. I suspect we need to move a few more players out before we can add to the wage bill and we’ve decided top priority is a striker.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Think he’s more of a line leading centre forward. Probably exactly what we need, a strong focus for a pacy, ball playing midfield to play around.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

WAs Moore captain ?
If so you can allow him to go and get involved (in a pacifying role ideally). No one else can really have an excuse.

Although would be fun if a football team ever emulated the infamous 99 call the Lions used in New Zealand which led to mass pre retaliation .

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

Have Forest also been charged ? To be honest it’s pretty hard to defend, there is never a justification for multiple players to run and get involved in protracted pushing and shoving. And obviously officials get scrutinised far more stringently than players do. If the FA tried to retrospectively pun...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Slightly odd that It would appear both Karanka and WAgner instigated their own departures, although for quitedifferent reasons. Neither appear to have other jobs lined up, not often a manager just quits like that.

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

I know I'm getting a bit carried away and I'm having to consciously combat that. It feels like, for the past 15 months or so, under four different managers, every victory has been so emphatic that it feels like we've turned a corner, and half the draws have been really promising. Then we'll go on a...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

I particularly like how he has the same honesty that Clement had in his interviews yet he says it all in a sexy Portuguese accent and plays passing football so the new age stat obsessed football manager generation of our fan base lap it up. Far more positive in his speech and approach than Clement....
