Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

But Aluko's not a striker he's a inconsistent winger with a penchant for row Z in 4 games out of 5 followed by 1 game where he's a world beater. While I'm happy to see Reading add another to the squad (and he is a talented player) I can't help feeling underwhelmed at paying up to £7.5m for a 28 yea...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Yeah alright, Norwich isn't horrible. Bit inbred but not horrible

Preston is though

Still think location does matter. Close to Heathrow, London etc.

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

I think they'll be quite happy if we are paying them 7m+ for a free transfer from last year

He is a good player and a good addition to the squad but not one I'd see as necessary, certainly at that price

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

Easy target, but JLow on the money as usual:

All quiet from Reading so far today regarding transfers.
Don’t expect anything to happen any time soon.

Sky reporting Reading have won the race to sign Aluko it would seem.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

well looks like we have 3 main options, and have for a while - Hugill, Aluko and Oliveira. All 3 of those have made noises about wanting to move on (and to us) from the sound of it. I suspect we are offering a nice tasty wage packet and a long contract, plus not having to live in horrible Preston or...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

I think Joey would prob sign for another year

Useful bloke to have around and I suspect relatively cheap wages wise

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Obv spent a few quid last season on Ilori and Popa as well with their money I don't know how I feel about it to be honest. I'm glad we've not gone full Wolves and spent an absolute fortune and I do think the money has been spent wisely so far. The other thing to keep in mind I suppose is we have bou...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

It's a nice evolvement of the squad and Stam's management

Certainly see us being 4-3-3 at home and 5-3-2 away more often than not. Would expect the likes of Beerens, Swift and maybe even McCleary featuring far more often at home than away and vice versa with Joey and Edwards

Re: BFTG - Birmingham City

Doesn't bother me in the slightest the 'boring' chat

Had to play conservatively at times last year as we basically came third with a midtable squad

This year sure we'll be more entertaining

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

4 of which are 22 or below and one of whom has just joined

Think we've seen a combo of Evans, Swift, Kelly and Clement aren't strong enough for a number of teams in this division - esp away from home

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

Quinn will be off on loan

I like him but he has barely played in 2 years, being injured for the majority

Joey likewise is injury and suspension prone

Would be utterly foolish to rely on those 2 for a 50 game season

Re: RUMOUR - Jordan Hugill

Sounds a similar player to Yann flicking through the PNE forum

Some suggestion that Burnley were quoted 10m they enquired. Wolves also after him

From the games I've seen Blackett looks a lot better this year at LB. going to be tough for Obita to come back in

I can't see Brighton letting Hemed go at all. They are short on players as it is. Hughton appears to have been asleep all summer

Re: The Stam passing game

I'd really hope games like Preston when were bullied become a thing of the past If we line up like we did today with Edwards in for Kelly, and maybe Popa or McCleary in for Barrow - we really should not be bullied by anyone I'd be concerned that Edwards in for Kelly would remove too much of the rhy...

Re: The Stam passing game

I'm not sure. Sometimes we play against that very well, and obv the more the oppo forwards press, the more tired they get etc - which is all part of the Stam Plan Sometimes we can get bullied and sometimes when we play poorly we look all over the shop If we could pick up Oliveira for example would b...
