Re: BFTG - Bristol City

It does seem the impressive last 20 are maybe not totally reflective of the full game tbf Think it goes back to the point RR made about how we struggled to retain possession. The two occasions we've played this formation we haven't had our best "hold up" player in Oliveira available. He h...

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

Yup. Thanks to SCIAG , Royals & Racers and others for their regular updates on this and other threads especially since it seems the club can only sporadically be arsed.

Re: RUMOUR - Jonson Clarke-Harris

If money is as tight as we are lead to believe, any decent big from a Dutch side for Novacovich will be taken - his stock is high over there and can easily see one of the bigger Dutch clubs taking him in the summer. Loader will go on loan next year I think and the other 3 are all sellable - so even...

Re: RUMOUR - Jonson Clarke-Harris

Hmmm. We play one upfront. We are looking like signing Oliveira and have Novacovich to come back. Plus Bod, Baldock, McNulty and Loader on the books. If this is an alternative to Oli should we get relegated then fine. But as well as? Don't really see it unless we're sure of shifting two or three of...

Re: 51 Academy players

Rob Dickie also leap-frogged other centre half contenders that pre-season but he decided he wanted to play first team football rather than be a 4th choice centre half/ 3rd choice right back. Not quite what happened. Dickie was actually one of the players who lost out under Stam, who had this weird ...

Re: 51 Academy players

Be interesting to hear how Watson has got on. Seems to be a bit in and out but at least seems to have stayed fit. Think there was an element of thinking Watson had more potential hence not making more of an effort to keep Stacey Glad someone actually mentioned Watson. He was obviously our back up R...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

One thing I noticed with Leeds compared to us, when our defenders had the ball whoever was man marking Swift came with him wherever he went. Meaning that the space between there press was a lot smaller. When we press with our top 3 + Swift, Baker and East were very fixed and rigid and that meant th...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

I'm not a fan of playing players out of position but I'd generally rather see a "false 9" or something, even Meite up front and Harriott and McCleary on the wings would suffice, Loader is clearly feeling the pressure and unfortunately, that's come from our fans overhyping him before he'd ...

Re: Bftg- Wigan (h)

1) 5) As did Meite. I f**king love Meite. Give me 11 Meites and I'll love watching the team. . Meite is and was woeful on Saturday, good header at the end aside. He's painfully slow for someone that looks quick, his holdup play is atrocious and he doesn't even win many headers. Can't fault his effo...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by Nicky Forster

And the Rotherham goal.? Baker nut-megging an opposition player whilst facing our own goal, then Martinez passing from directly under his own goal line with an opposition player breathing down his neck, 3 passes later it's in the back of the opponents net. The probability of that happening would be ...

Re: Bftg- Wigan (h)

Interesting differences of opinion about Loader. I thought he looked much more comfortable as part of the team today. He was bringing the ball forward, beating men and looked stronger than he had done. Previously he looked what he was, a boy stuck into a men’s game, whereas today Indon’t think you ...

Re: Economics

We’ll have to disagree ! They clearly aren’t involved on a pure business basis. You don’t make billions by thinking a second tier football club is a money making exercise. The fact that they took the club on without the potential money making REP project indicates that at the very least this is a l...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Reading in the chronic that since the Chinese took over we have lost £34.7m that's not far short of the £39m for exceeding the FFP threshold over 3 years. Next year will need to be cost cutting like you wouldn`t know. That's how much the club is in debt, not how much we've lost since they took over...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Have we released our figures for year ending 2018 yet?

I've a feeling that the figures quoted here are for our play-off season (Stam's first season).

If that's the case it doesn't take into consideration our last two disastrous summer transfer windows which we're still trying to recover from.

Re: £5 Comic Relief Red Reading Footy shirt

Picked up a dozen (8 adult , 4 child) this morning. (E-BAY link to follow) The way I look at it , they'll probably fetch about £40 for the adult and £20 for children's size on average. So £400 minus my initial outlay of £60. So £340 profit. I'll give half of that to Comic Relief and pocket the othe...
