Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

I read it as early doors in the season because Colin’s being doing that since he managed in the bottom leagues. That was Denver I was suggesting he always does this, as you say bcubed, yep, agree with you. Hence why I said ‘Very early doors...’. Warnock has employed those type strategies for years....

Re: CONFIMRED - Tommy Elphick

Of course, Warnock also figured out, very early doors, that a couple of really tall thugs, if that’s what they are, work wonders in the Champ at the other end of the park, too. err that's what Warnock has always done and it's usually throughout the team That was kind of the point I read it as early...

tbf, Hammond's dined out on 'half a million for Andy Hughes' for years He should eat free for life for that deal as far as I'm concerned... + to the 1 When Neil Warnock of all people says Nick Hammond drives such a hard bargain he could get blood out of a stone, then that's praise, bearing in mind ...

Re: Building for next season

It seems that Adi Popa was training at Reading for a couple of weeks at the end of last season. Paul Clement gave him a lot of attention and was waiting for him in the team. Popa also said he is coming back for pre-season and is going to do what is required to stay here and hopes to do a good job. ...

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 woul...

Would be a great signing for us


We massively need leaders in this team - it was utterly spineless and without character last season

Re: Rumour - Michael Krmenčík

Just don't see the point of this type of signing when we have someone like Andrija Novakovich scoring goals regularly in a similar league. Rather money goes on a proven English striker or creative midfielder etc. Has novakovic scored 7 in 13 at international level? Has novakovic scored 4 in 8 in th...

Re: Building for next season

Should be easy to get that video proof then.. Just go to some games I live in France.. I have watched every ifollow game though and have consistently found Gunter lacking in basic defensive qualities. The benefit of ifollow over attending a game is you have instant replay at your finger tips. Which...

Never mind five times a season it probably happens every other game

To be honest, I don't know what more you would expect the CEO of any company to say in an interview with a local hack other than a assessment of the past year and a broad statement of future intent. Well quite. I also thought that TD did a reasonable job of asking the right questions. It was intere...

Re: Building for next season

Gunter would not be great in a back 3. He would be a liability in a back 3. Azpilicueta and Monreal are two full backs that became great centre backs. I feel Gunter is the same. He’s played many games at centre back, so we know he can do it. Lol. Azpilicueta and Monreal have one important quality t...

Jesus. Imagine if those are our striking options next season. Almost makes me wish we still had Dominic Samuel. Absolutely tragic. But no chance of us being in a relegation fight, right?

Re: Summer Transfers

Yep shift out Mendes and obv Martin who I suspect was packed off on his way the minute the ref blew his whistle at Cardiff. Then bring in one striker with back up from Bod, Yann, Novakovich and Loader . Smith out on Loan to Div1. Should be absolutely plenty and allow us to play 1 or 2 up top Jesus....
