Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

I believe it costs closer to £4m a year though there's incentives which reduces the net cost to about £3m, but the cash goes out first. I think a Cat 3 is around a million a year. Blackburn, I believe, have or will soon downgrade from a Cat 1 to a Cat 3 to reduce their overall running costs. Their t...

Re: BFTG Swansea

FWIW I thought we were dreadful in the second half. First 15-20 minutes I really enjoyed and thought it was going to be an end to end cracker of a game. Then they had a couple of chances on the break (and I think we were lucky the lino gave a foul on Obita as I thought it wasn't and probably off-set...

Re: Team for Swansea.

Looks like Smith and Rinomhota will be in the squad tonight as they weren't included in the U23 squad last night. Loader, Barrett and Andresson all played

Ah ok, I wasn't at that game, but knew Gunter had been captain. So, where did he play then, if Rinomhota was RB? RCB? RWB?

Left back / LWB


now I'm very confused :lol:

obita/Richards injured; Blackett rested; Gunter LB by default

Re: Team for Swansea.

Why would Rinomhota (note spelling!) get a game ahead of Gunter - they're not the same position? Rinomhota is a midfielder. If Watson wasn't injured, I reckon he'd start ahead of Gunter for this one. Bacuna might be a shout though. Who plays RB for the U23s? Because he had a good game at right back...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

I remember saying on a thread about three years ago that I couldn't decide whether Kuhl was going to have a stellar career or disappear into non league football. Well both my options were wrong! There aren't many teams who play that water carrier type role where everything goes through the playmaker...

Re: Team for Swansea.

Think Popa is injured. I expect Kelly to be rested and also a start for Bacuna. Maybe see Rinamohta get a game ahead of Gunter again? Otherwise, reckon that's quite close. Gives McCleary and Obita some much needed game time and perhaps Beerens as well. Why would Rinomhota (note spelling!) get a gam...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

I thought it was strange that Zak Jules, who I believe Stam wanted to stay, went to Shrewsbury in League 1 and he's been loaned out to a league 2 side already. If we had less money then I'd expect more to come through. Last year was a bit disappointing given players like gravenberch, Meite and Mende...

Reading XI : Mannone, Gunter, McShane, Moore, Blackett, Berg, Edwards, McCleary, Kelly, Bodvarsson, Aluko Subs : Jaakkola, Ilori, Beerens, Evans, Obita, Bacuna, Clement Let me guess, now Barrow is injured....? :?

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Bloke in front of me was hilarious yesterday. Moaning when we kept possession at the back wanting the ball p,aged forward. Then screaming irately when we hoofed the ball upfield to no one in particular. We really aren't set up to play any long balls as there are too many gaps between our players.

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

I get that JDB missed an absolute sitter yesterday, but he still looked a lot better than Brizzle's No 9 - beware what you wish for in a 5m quid striker! He looked like an expensive version of Mendes/Manset. tbf - Leeds new striker got a couple and he's only on loan I believe

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Surprised that Mendes wasn't even on the bench yesterday. Is he injured? I thought those types of pull back type chances we created were his bread and butter. I actually thought we were reasonable yesterday. Created some good chances and the extra pace of Barrow and Aluko have already added a comple...

Re: How many will we sign?

Fair enough - but a 'proven' goalscorer is not an easy find As I've mentioned elsewhere I think there maybe was a couple of players we could have looked at But thats just not true, there are astronomical amounts of players worldwide. Why is everyone obsessed with UK based players? You know how many...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

Apparently Edwards was quoted last season talking to Wolves fans that he has such a high tackle count because his first touch is so bad that every second touch is a tackle. Sounds an ideal replacement for Struggle Pig

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

if we sign Oliveira then I think it's a recognition that Kermogant is basically done and really won't be back.

Also, if he comes in do we put Sam Smith out on loan given we also have Mendes as well?
