Speculatively, that might well be where we end up. But we aren't there just yet.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

One of the usual. Seems only way we'll get him is if we come up with something too good to turn down. Given we're splashing out on Aluko, I can't see us signing him at the expense of a striker though? Personal feel is we're going to push into the too good to refuse category. Whether that happens tho...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Sounds like if we get Oliveira it'll come down to the wire. 50/50 at best for him as it stands and currently our eggs are in an Oliveira shaped basket. Unless we get this over the line Aluko might well be our final option in the upper end of the pitch. For Norwich, if Tettey/Klose leave they may be ...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Defender Grant Hanley to undergo a medical at Norwich. Reported to be on 40k a week at Newcastle. I wonder if this has anything to do with Oliveira moving on? Why would they sell 1 of 2 strikers they have to fund a defender... even if oliviera is second choice they would still need to bring someone...

Re: RUMOUR - Jordan Hugill

Seems unless there's a drastic change from our end that Hugill is over from our side though. Nothing to see here.

Not disappointed in the slightest here - a similar mould of striker to Bod/Yann.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Clement was about 750k.

Thought Bacuna was about 2.5? We had a 1.5m rejected the week before we got him.

Couldn't see us not getting top 6 at least if we had oliveira leading the line.

Good all round game, like the ball at feet, can bring others into play (great passing although never assists).. would score for fun in this team.

Yeah, because our start to the season has been outstanding

We've shown signs of what can be.

They're in meltdown.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

@MBS_Sport saying things are progressing with Oliveira.

Apparently they had more hits than misses last window. Don't recall them myself.

Lots going around we have a structured deal for Aluko in place too, seems that's just dependent on them getting a replacement in.

His goalscoring record is good, but not as good as Swift or Kelly (although he's played at a higher level).. Over his career, including the PL, it eclipses Kelly last season and the beginning of this. That means including lots of lower-level appearances for Edwards (including the same number of Con...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

That means including lots of lower-level appearances for Edwards (including the same number of Conference games and over 100 fourth-tier games). Championship alone, Edwards scores twice as often - but Kelly has mostly been used in a deep-lying role, and has been prolific after being pushed forward ...

Only just behind Swift last season, but over a considerably longer period.

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

Seems the high press is our weakness right now.

Re: The Stam passing game

Hopefully the likes of Edwards can put a but of that guile in for us. Doesn't mind a tackle.

Also, there's a great deal at Reading's sponsor Wickes this weekend, buy one get on free on 2.5l tins of paint, if you'd rather watch some dry than persevere with our style.
