Re: Season 2018/2019

There’s clips of the goals - actually very decent wing play from Aluko for the 2nd (and did well on the first)

Re: Season 2018/2019

Mild concern we're regularly conceding in pre-season. Positive we're scoring. Great to see McNulty bag a goal. Nice to see Smith continue his knack of scoring, although can't see him having much involvement in the first team of course. He seems to be one of those players who look a bit average but ...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Another fair point. I am firmly in the "friendlies results don't matter a jot" camp but there are many who probably put great stock in them. I think what you want to see is the side gearing up for the season and clear tactics in place. I think we’ve done that so far, and this feels a lot ...

Re: Sam Baldock

Yeah exactly that. Baldock knows the division, will work hard and provide some leadership up front There’s a clear plan from PC to bring in experienced leaders and have the flair players - Swift, Barrow, Meite etc play round them. Feels much more solid than this time last year I can’t see a play off...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I don't nessecarily agree with that. It's a new manager doing his first pre season. It's about getting his tactics across and ensuring the players are fit for the season. I can buy that. Except that, if we won all our pre-season games, and scored lots of goals, with lots of shots on target, would w...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Last minute equaliser. 2-2. McNulty bags his first for the club. Rubin Kazan next up. k.o. 4pm BST on Friday. Live on BBC Berks. Can very much see the team PC is looking at to start the season Meite is the one that interests me - 4 games in a row up front, and whilst he hasn’t scored, he sounds lik...

Re: Sam Baldock

Indeed, for whatever reason they have suddenly got a ton of cash

No point comparing us to them

Again not really sure what people are expecting. Season before last he was excellent in a promotion winning side. Decent experience and will provide the movement we severely lacked last season.

Re: Sam Baldock

Sorry to be all doom and gloom but thoroughly underwhelmed at this (and if this concludes it) our entire summer’s transfers both in and out. Who realistically were you expecting to come in? Meyler and Yiadom - 2 experienced quality payers to fill in big issues we had at FB and CM last year McNulty ...

Re: Sam Baldock

I think part of the issue is that we are a far less attractive proposition than this time last year, when we could genuinely talk about going for promotion. Unless we are going to splash out very large sums (and I'm quite pleased we are not) we are not going to be playing in the big league for signi...

Re: Sam Baldock

Apparently close to signing Sam Baldock. There's no mention of Liam Moore in the article, so it woudl be a straight buy, rather than as a makeweight in a deal for Moore Pete O Rourke is one of the more reliable journalists, IMO, so I'd rate this as pretty likely. https://twitter.com/SportsPeteO/sta...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I think we'd all like to see some wins, or at least good performances in the last couple of games of pre-season Sounds like (and this is a good thing) that PC has been working them very hard in pre-season. Some of the results have been down to doing a full week of hard training then straight into th...

Re: George Evans

Seriously people THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN HIM TO BLOODY AUSTRIA IF TALKS ARE TAKING PLACE. All the people claiming a fee is agreed.

Re: George Evans

Maybe so but for me it’s a far greater urgency to get rid of players we know for a fact aren’t and won’t come good, I.e Edwards and VDB. oxf*rd pay out the contracts and get them the oxf*rd out, I throw up a bit in my mouth every time I see their names the useless spunkstains. Its pretty obvious PC...

Re: George Evans

he'll be ooc at the end of the season anyway, so prob wouldn't hang around

He is just the sort of player we need to trim from the squad (just not good enough) rather than hang onto in the forlorn hope he might come good.

Re: Tim Krul

considering we have 4 keepers under contract, this would be utterly bizarre (unless we sold Mannone)

he's pretty reliable on the whole that source though

Re: Summer Transfers

I expect with Joey we’ll end up paying some of his wages still - basically anything to get rid. Terrible decision to extend him last season Oh god I had forgotten we did that! What awful business that is. It is fairly clear when you look at the extension of both him and Yann that behind the scenes ...
