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

Yeah, we do seem to have some promising goalkeepers coming through. The only trouble is we will still probably need to sign a first choice goalie, and there won’t be room for both Ward and Southwood, I think eventually we may have to get rid of them to give them a proper chance of development Sign ...

Re: Rumour - Diamond Milan Edwards to Roma or Southampton

CountryRoyal Might have gotten out on the wrong side of the bed this morning, which I always think is quite impressive considering one side of my bed is against a wall.

Re: Rumour Meite back to France?

Doesn't care if Lille have the 6 or 7m we all want - it's whether they have the Xm that the club will accept. My view is that given the state of our FFP finances we would likely accept a lot less that 7m - maybe even half that. Depends largely on who else is wanted. Its not like we have to sell eve...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Don’t worry too much. We judged Eza on 4 games. I saw Mark Aizlewood's first game (aged about 16, for Newport County) After five MINUTES you could see he was utter class for Fourth Division and would play at a much higher level. You CAN tell sometimes. Not always, but sometimes. How soon after Rhin...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

Just thinking, underestimating by six points over nine games equates to a 30-31 point underestimation for a season

That’s the difference between finishing 8th this season and finishing below Rotherham and in the bottom three.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Yeah thought nketiah was highly rated but just based off the one game I watched, he wasn’t great. Obviously that’s a ridiculous level to judge someone on though. Don’t worry too much.

That’s a smashing bit of negativity to say that it’s impossible to predict where we’ll finish without knowing the squad, yet you know we won’t get in the top 4 :lol: If we had all the loanees and added a quality striker we’d be challenging for autos imho Even with all that we still have a relativel...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Snowflake Royal

Would you take a relegation getting there out of curiosity?


I might say yes if I knew we'd come straight back up in the autos with a huge point-count
but I'm not sure I could take a fourth awful season on the trot (including the worst 3rd place ever)

Somerton Park has a railway behind, no river. Frankly, unless it was packed for a big game it was a bit soulless
