Re: Summer Transfers

Oliveira has been omitted from the Norwich squad flying out to their training camp...and as they have already signed two new strikers this summer...maybe this time around, the mystery player who is due to sign in "the coming days" could be him? A bit meh tbh. Had a bit of a shitter last s...

Re: Summer Transfers

it'd be absolute carnage if the oppo had a decent right winger If Obita was fit and back to his best, then it could work reasonably well. However, wouldn't play Swift and Kelly, and 2 midgets up front might not be the best targets for the 2 wing backs to aim for It would mean Aluko would need to le...

Re: Summer Transfers

Thing is, he's obviously not shit, he's quite obviously got skill. It's his application of that skill which is atrocious. That is like say I have the ability to be good at pealing potatoes. But I don’t have a peeler and I am allergic to starch. For me its the simple things that Clement should be lo...

Re: Summer Transfers

To be a wing back you need to have some positional sense. Given Aluko can't even manage the simplest responsibility of staying wide, I don't think he'd be even remotely good as a wing back. If he had half a brain and a knack for scoring he might make a decent No 10 for a free role, but he doesn't a...

It could almost work with second team aswell --------------------------------Jaakola ------------Andresson-----oshea-----------Blackett Gunter ---------------------Bacuna----------------------Obita Really interesting to see you put him in the second team. Is that what we think Clement is going to d...

Re: Summer Transfers

its a fair point. I just don't see how you do 'use him properly'. I think he just isn't very good. Some chap posted an analysis on here recently, and it pretty much showed stats wise that last season was by no means an outlier for him. The real problem is what is he? He isn't a winger as he keeps c...

You really want to sign a player with a surname like that given Reading’s defensive frailties?

Atleast we wouldn't have to come up with names to call him

Re: Summer Transfers

Actually sadly it will prob be Aluko if we play 3. Trying really hard to forget him, almost did What if ...in the same way that Vydra, Grabban, even Piazon to an extent have gone on to be better elsewhere when used 'properly', Clement has an idea for a new system that gets the best out of Aluko.

Re: CONFIMRED - Marc McNulty

From a quick scan through the Cov site, seems he likes a big partner up front to play off They seem pretty gutted which is obvs a good sign Think we still need a Hugill type to come in on loan or perm, then would be pretty happy for the season to start Noel hunt style player, someone to break up pl...

Re: Summer Transfers

This may all be starting to fall into place. Liam Moore 8 million + baldock McNulty 2 million or looks that way Maddison 3 million 3-4 million on an unknown central defender Still leaving this unknown striker kitty.... personally I would like jack Marriott. If this is how it all folded into place I ...

Re: RUMOUR - Marc McNulty

I think 1 lower divisions gamble + 1 higher profile striker is prob the way to go I think this is the most likely outcome, a hugill/Wells sort of signing with McNulty would be a good step in the right direction. I think this may have been where we are going wrong for the last couple of seasons. Sig...

Know next to nothing about the other guy.

Timo Pukki I agree definitely is worth a punt. Has played in some good leagues over the years aswell.

Random Brazilian guy er no. Misses isn’t to shabby though.

Re: Speculation - Tom Bradshaw

No one else has mentioned it so I thought I would, sky sports say we are still monitoring this guy alongside Millwall and Bolton. I am not sure this is the answer.

Re: Fixtures

I think derby is a good start actually. I personally think Lampard has taken on one of the hardest jobs in the league. I think unless derby invest heavily they could struggle a bit this year. They have a very ageing squad and I think last year was the last hurrah for a lot of there players. I saw a...

Re: CONFIRMED: Novakovich to stay on loan nxt season, this time at Fotuna Sittard

Wish everyone would stop spunking themselves over Nova without really seeing him. Most of his goals were tap ins and penalties in a horrifically mediocre league. So a poacher doing a poachers job. I don’t think it’s spunking over him it’s if we don’t sign anyone else he was better than nothing. Wha...
