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

Josh Barrett returning to Reading after 7 appearances and no goals at Aldershot, not sure where he can go from here after the ill fated league 2 loan period at Coventry. A Shots fan I know absolutely raved about Osho and was really disappointed we had recalled him. He said Barrett swung between loo...

Re: New Manager

Wow, tough on Hammond to have been sacked twice by the Baggies ! Obviously makes his return rather simpler.
Still think Tevrenden is obvious. He was clearly moved because he didn’t fit with Gourlay but not sacked so the owners must think well of him. He knows the club.

Re: New Manager

Surely it is much more likely that Tevrenden will return from exile than Hammond will Return ? Hammond is still at WBA. Isn’t he ? So we’d have to persuade him to leave a job for one wherehe’d Probably be paid less and potentially have to pay WBA compensation (although depends on his employment stat...

Re: Nigel Howe appointed new CEO

What, if anything, did Nani do for RFC other than draw a (presumbly large) wage? To be fair to him, assuming his main role was managing player recruitment, he has had no chance to do much. Appointed after one window closed, gone before the next one opens. He may have got deals lined up ahead of Jan...

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

Does the ‘England eligible’ criteria apply only once a player has committed to another country at full international level ? Liam Kelly played for Ireland at youth level, would that have made him Irish. He’s not played for their full team so is also eligible for Ireland. Danny Loader has played for ...

Training Ground Guru have done an analysis of Academies in terms of how many players they have produced, and have ranked us 14th. which is pretty decent I think.

Re: Nigel Howe appointed new CEO

Classic case of nepotism.

He’s only got the job because his son plays for the U23’s.

I hear Danny Loader’s mum has been offered the manager’s job.

Re: Clement

Would be amazed if any player contract ever included a clause that the player HAD to be selected for every game irrespective of form, attitude, team needs etc. Would be simply impossible to achieve. Contracts last 3 or more years, you just couldn’t give that guarantee for that time period. A compuls...

I’d certainly give Tammy Abraham a place on our bench if they had to unload him.

Re: Hogwood Countdown

I don’t think RFC ever owned Hogwood. I think SJM bought it and leased it to the club. Believe he sold it but not sure which owner he passed it on to.

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

I think teddy Howe has come on hugely this season. Was never over impressed by him before but seems to get better each game. He’s a very modern full back in that he does most of his good work going forward, he’s a competent defender but not amazing. He works well with our clutch of truely exciting c...

Surely that’s dangerous play, which is an indirect free kick, not a penalty.

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

So 2 for both House and Loader Would be happy to see either or both getting game time in the first 11 with Bod and maybe Meite out Loader wouldn’t be a replacement for Bod/Meite, he’s a completely different type of player. In our current side he’d do the job Baldock does (or maybe Swift when he’s p...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Overall a most enjoyable game. We look decent going forward and dodgy defensively. Blackett is worth the admission on his own. Just superb to see him showboating on the edge of his own area, love it. Good to to see people throwing the usual fake stats into the equation. It doesn’t matter how many sp...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (a) sponsored by one pub on each corner

Really surprised at some of the comments here. Once again, we show we are mentally weak. Goals immediately after have time, this season and stoppage time points lost etc, got to be a coaching management issue. Really pi$$ed off Or is it down to individuals not taking responsibility ?

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

Agreed with that. Everyone looked good today, Teddy Howe had a very good game despite one heart-in-mouth moment. Would like to see Osho, Holmes and McIntyre all play - maybe one could go into midfield to add some steel. Three at the back maybe, although I think Osho and McIntyre are good enough foo...

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

Saints erected disappintingly poor and we should have won by more. No surprise Barratt being on the bench given the first teamers getting decent work outs. Holmes being fit meant Osho on the bench, showing how strong we are in that position. Tyler Frost had a good game as did Loader and generally th...
