Re: Next Season's Squad.

If Obita can recover and refind his form I can't think of a time when we'd be better stocked at full back. Individual quality in first choice may not be up to our highest standards, but Yiadom and Obita with Gunter, Blackett, Richards, Watson and Howe is an overabundance of strength in depth worthy...

Re: Financial Fair Play

One of the reasons you as a club might want to keep ownership of your stadium is who will own it in the future. Coventry had no problem allowing their local authority to own the stadium, until they hit hard times, as did the local authority, who chose to sell it to a rugby club instead. You'd rathe...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

We really need to be keeping hold of our youngsters and trying to build the club around our shining academy players. Loader is clearly going to be a star, he's still young and raw at the moment but we've all seen that there's a talented kid in there. He has great movement and the way he took that g...

Re: Financial Fair Play

I had no idea we'd done this. Yes as per that analysis we have sold our stadium to Renhe and now we rent it off them. That's a big minus in my eyes vis-a-vis the owners. It means when they come to sell the club the club has very few assets, other than its registered players and its membership of th...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Boro away at the end of the season was absolutely peak Gunter. Was a positional horror show was miles away from where he needed to be almost all the time and every single attack pretty much came down his side. Shocking defender, I honestly have no clue how half the fan base don’t see it and if some...

Re: Rumour - Josh Morris

until it's clear if Obita is going to come back anything like the player he was? Saw him at Sainsbury's the other day and it still looked like he was limping to me. I hate to write a player off based on hearsay and gossip - but, it's not looking good, is it? Such an innocuous-looking injury, too.

Re: Pre season tour

Lol. In which case ignore my post above. If they're streaming the lot then surely there's no good reason it's behind closed doors. Unless it's to keep stadium/policing costs down? Actually I'd say that's very likely - there's probably required staffing levels etc as soon as you let the public in. B...

Whore Jackie
Credible source says he's already left Reading.


Looks like there may have been a change of plan!

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

Is he really 6’3” ? He looks much shorter than that ! Do you know him ? Hard to say someone’s head will be turned unless you actually know them. We’ve got several players who could have gone to ‘bigger’ academies but have stayed with us and I think anyone with a good agent would probably decide mov...

Shit for Championship footballers maybe but I certainly wont be turning my nose up at £10k/month :wink: Yeah I wouldn't say no atm. 10k a month is extraordinary money for anyone, but of course in the unreal world of football most Championship players would find 10k a month verging on minimum wage l...

If you do switch, I hope you’re going to contribute to the noise and not just sit there for saving some money?! Similarly, anyone who moves to the ED for cheaper prices absolutely cannot moan about clappers. Each stand has its own "character" - and you need to buy into that character if y...

Re: McShane leaves

Can't think of another player that let us down at crucial times as often as he did tbf. See ya. Name all those times then. Or was this just a lazy throwaway comment because he isn’t the player he was 2 years ago? I'm convinced hair colour is a factor for some. Barrow has let us down. So has Meite (...

Hmm, do I pay £375 to renew in the Lower West of save £76 and join club 1871 for £299?

Re: Ex Players

There's no doubt we wasted money looking at it now. But at the time, they were three good players who plenty of Championship teams would have bought. Yann had just scored 20 goals or so, and Joey and McShane were instrumental to us coming 3rd. At the time, myself and I'm sure a lot of people though...

Re: Ex Players

wonder how much money we lost on the year extensions for McShane, Joey and Yann. 3 players that no other club would have likely taken off our hands at the end of last season anyway. And we managed I think 5 games out of the 3 of them this season. 1.5 mill? 2? There's no doubt we wasted money lookin...
