Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

Fine - if it Happens then fair play to the lad, he’s earned his move

Brighton would make sense for him tbf. Let’s just make sure we get a good fee for him

Re: Summer Transfers

wouldn't be overly suprised to see him try to move on Bod if there was interest for him. Worth keeping I think as 2nd/3rd choice though imo

Re: Summer Transfers

Agreed. He actually sounds 'normal'

Interesting last comment - we want less strikers (5) but more quality. Suggests a couple might be on their way out

Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

yeah utterly messed up by Stam last season. He was an excellent crosser of the ball and scored some important goals. Worked very well alongside a fit McCleary who is a similar player if a bit quicker and bit better defensively. Still he was contributing nothing by the time he left, so can see why he...

Re: Summer Transfers

cool, would be good to get people in very early. Imagine Meyler is one of those

wonder if Jordan Hugill is still on the radar. Did he even play a minute for West Ham? Suspect a loan back to the champ is going to happen

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Who is charging the interest? The same people who own the club?

Re: Building for next season

from JLow

'he told TV Digi Sport: "I'm going to train with Reading and I'll do what's required to stay there.

"The team has a new manager, Paul Clement, and I hope he can do a good job. I'm just thinking about Reading. Steaua is just speculation."

Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

with McShane as well, he is obviously less comfortable on the ball than Ilori or Moore. It was probably more of an effort to play the possession game mentally. Really he should just concentrate on being a bit of a thug and organising the back line

Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

fair points Denver. I suppose its a case of whether PC has seen enough in training to think Elphick is a better mid term option than McShane Thought McShane was very disappointing last year after a good season in 16/17. Maybe if he went back to just being a defender first and foremost, then he would...

Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

don't really believe anything from the Chronic, but sure we'd have an interest if he was available. Suspect a lot of that will be down to the PO final result. If Villa do go up, there's no way they are going to want to keep him

Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

quick google suggests Meyler currently doing UEFA B coaching badges. Bit of a stretch maybe, but suggests the kind of leadership character PC is surely after in that midfield]

Also maybe why its gone a bit quiet on the news front after being splashed everywhere a few days ago

Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

only issue there of course is that both Edwards and Joey are still in contract.

Would happily see them both leave in the summer if there are any takers

Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

They had a note at the end saying they didn’t include the 16m or whatever it was in transfer fees since the accounts were written Tbf the transfer activity bar Aluko wasn’t excessive spend. 2m for Mannone, 1.5ish for Bacuna and Barrow seem reasonable to good value. Ilori was overpriced but may still...

Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

From a guess based on figures in the accounts, I reckon we paid as much as 5m for him up front

I imagine a lot of the other add ons were promotion based, so not a problem there :)

Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

Nice points again in Aluko but does beg the question - what exactly is he if he isn’t a winger? Defensively he is poor, he isn’t a striker and did nothing other than wander around aimlessly in centre mid Makes me think his performances this year would be very much the norm and there will be no ‘comi...

Re: Rumour - Michael Krmenčík

100% would give Nova' a chance next year. But think we do need another striker as well.

New Striker
Novakovich
Bodvarssson
Yann
Loader/Smith, one going out on loan.

would be how I'd see us line up next year in priority order
