Re: Will Gomes stay?

He's seems to be getting more and more frustrated and who can blame him? Media noise one suspects. There is a plan. A long term one. There is no quick fix. Gomes will be fully aware. There'll be activity behind the scenes. I'd expect last minute additions in the form of loan players. End of last se...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Has everyone here completely forgotten how utterly atrociously oxf*rd we were going forward last year pre-oliveira? Much to do with the wide players and creativity in midfield. Aluko was such a catastrophic buy for the fee paid. Instead we could have bought 3 average players and had far more depth ...

Re: Pre season tour

Hmm injury prone John Swift playing his second game of the day, but no sign of Barrow or Novakovich for friendly #2 Barrett back in Gomes is now just guessing. He's got no resources and won't be getting any so he's just shuffling about until something sticks, and I can't blame him. Just a question ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Baker was probably the nail in his coffin. In Baker we had a guy who wanted to play , to contribute to the team for the full 90 minutes of the match. Was happy to play in whatever Gomes assigned him too. Baker had far fewer Championship appearances too prior to coming on loan.

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Snowflake Royal Shame with Kelly gone it's him or Swift alongside Rino.


You would hope that Gomes will add more steel to midfield. Allowing Swift a freer role with less defensive duties.

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Terrible decision. Immense talent, just needed the right nurturing and a positive role in the team. I worry about our future as a club when things like this happen. Comes a point when it's character rather than just ability which lifts players to higher levels. In a team that may battle to survive ...

Re: Pre season tour

Did we win any in 17/18 either? I know we didn’t last year but I’m pretty sure there was a lot of pessimism before that season started because of a poor pre season Seriously mate I absolutely cannot recall any of those friendlies. There was a rather pathetic defeat at Wimbledon, as I recall.. Defen...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I get wanting to get rid of the high earners. What I don't get is how one minute we are desperate for cash, the next we are turning down money for a replaceable player. Seems mixed messages, this even from the same journo We don't know how much was offered. With many clubs suffering from financial ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Lets face it we just survived with 5 amazing loanees. This season looks like we may have only one of them. We are unlikely to be able to sign anyone and will be left with disgruntled senior players that we can't get rid of. We don't have a goalkeeper thats above League 2 level, If that's not a reci...

Re: Nick Shorey joins Accademy as Scout

Another good character to have around. Management structure within the club needed rebuilding and strengthening. More so if the long term focus is going to on player development.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

URZZZZ Then suddenly 12 months later it became the “cool” thing to criticise Kelly when results weren’t going well and everyone piled on him



Too inconsistant week to week. Lacks the engine to get up and down the pitch. Better suited to league one . Unless he's putting the work in to improve.

Fate was sealed some time back.

Looks like a few loan players to supplement the squad again come the start of the season.

Re: Rumour - Liam Kelly

Wallsy Liam is one of the players told he can leave and not to report back for training, and then told to in fact return for training as there are no tales thus far.


Perhaps some of the players will have had a change of attitude. Easier to find a new team if you are in the shop window.

Don't see any way back for him, especially another year older. Unless he burys the hatchet with Gomes. We've no money. Getting a year out of someone on the books would be no bad thing. The guy captained his country. Therefore must have something in his locker. With his head in the right place would...

Re: Rival Watch

It's bizarre until you remember that it is Charlton. Not just Reading under a self imposed embargo. The fact that a promoted club is up for sale suggests that the (disliked) owners see this as a good opportunity to recover at least some of their investment. Suggests that this fills one of the 3 bot...

Crowbar6753 Luton - May start well but will get found out quickly. The Champ is a big step up in class.


Sheff United came up with a settled team with no outstanding individuals.
