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

Southwood is having a very good spell at Bath (most clean sheets of any goalkeeper in the division), Ward is doing well at Aldershot, Barrett is barely playing at Coventry. Aside from those three and Novakovich, none of our other loanees matter. Unless I've forgotten someone. Cov fans are saying he...

Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

Would appear that Barrow and Evans are both injured as neither in today’s match day squad

Re: Club announces new manager!

Net cost is about £3m per year after subsidy payments from the FA for youth development. I think our academy benefits from picking up London club rejects doesn’t it, so a lot of the “local” talent is actually not from the Berkshire area. The good ones end up at Chelsea, etc but then we pick up peopl...

Re: CONFIMRED - Chris Martin (loan)

Pog-esque in his falling over ability under the lightest of touches. Hopefully will win many penalties and free kicks in dangerous areas.

Bodvarsson now officially very unhappy? relegated to bench warming duties again?

Re: Deadline Day Thread

Hard to put a finger on it but something about him I just don't rate A Blackburn supporting mate said he was a weird one for them, great goalscoring record but was incredibly lazy and the fans would get on his back a lot. Reckons he has an obvious natural talent for getting in the right place to fi...

Thanks for the write ups. Sounds a better performance, albeit against a poor side

Need to follow this up now with a positive result against millwall

Wouldn't say it was a good performance. But it was effective against a very limited Burton team. Horses for courses springs to mind.

Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

Nice cameo tonight. I like my central defenders tall, and he's not the tallest, but he fit in right away, and was a tidy, calming influence. Taller than Moore and McShane imo He's shorter than both by 5cm and 2cm respectively. quite surprised by that having been very close to him when he warmed up ...

Re: BFTG Burton

Well that was very different. We played a very pragmatic form of football. Very little passing around at the back. Definitely safety first. It wasn’t pretty but was what was needed against a very limited Burton team and in the wet conditions. Can’t see Burton staying up tbh We started as a 4-4-2 wit...

Anyone got any parking tips for the Pirelli Stadium please? First visit for me I parked on a little industrial estate literally opposite the ground for free last season. Probably best to get there with time to spare. Here's a postcode: Ryknild Ind Est/Derby Rd, Burton-on-Trent DE14 1RZ thats great....

probably right. Jakkola is also OOC this summer as well - perhaps re-sign one out of the two and run with an academy product as back-up

Probably lose Cat 1 academy status as well due to the cost of running it. It’s about £4m a year with a £1m coming back via contributions from the FA for English player development So who do you think would stay and go? I think we would have the following players left Jakkola Richards McShane Blacke...
