Re: GOMES OUT!

You live and die by your results and ultimately ours have been poor. More than that, the tactical naivety of the last few games did it for me. A good talker and a handsome charmer, but as in business, those types tend to come unstuck if there's no substance... We have the squad, now we need a high ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

This Puscas chap looks the real deal from the video clips and i really cannot believe we've got under the radar and signed him. I suspect we'll be luckily to get two years out of him at best if he scores goals!! he'll leave for a big premier or European club for loads of dosh i guess. So a smart mo...

Re: Are we still heading for a 9pt deduction?

So the owners other club KSV Roeselare haven’t been paying their players, and Tevreden hadn’t received a pay check for over 5 months before walking out last week. The Chinese are selling the club but they haven’t gone about it the right way. I hope they don’t wash their hands with us like that in t...

Coppells Lost Coat Clean sheets guarantees points.
There is no point being able to score 2-3 goals a game but concede just as many.

You can't win if you don't score. You can draw and win if you concede. Lots of draws put you in a relegation fight.

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

IF he can stay fit, and IF he plays regularly and IF he can return to something like his previous quality and IF we're paying him a low basic, then this is a good signing. That's too many major ifs for me though, and honestly I think this is as poor a signing as O'Shea was last summer. The mission ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Watching a couple of you tube clips, I can understand why Jose likes him, he's good with the ball at his feet, and distribution looks good too...but he's not particularly tall, looks like he likes to punch the ball, and for me is going to find the EFL a step up. As mentioned , physically he may find...

Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

So I can only assume that if this is announced today/tomorrow that this will bring down this years losses giving us more wiggle room in the next FFP period. I also wonder if any consideration on any new sponsor / sposnsorship deal considered how that payment is made - i.e 100% up front? Like you sa...

Hendo I dunno, Hughes was good for a short while when he played in-behind Forster.

Very handy stop gap utility player when our options were otherwise limited too.


Hughsie was good value all round

Re: The way things are/were done

I quite liked Joey in his interview but getting a bit bored of his ‘didn’t want leaders’ thing Basically Clement made it clear there wasn’t any leadership on the pitch before he came and that was pretty evident in our dismal fall down the table. If Joey was a ‘leader’ as he claims to be, he really ...

URZZZZ Interesting article on Drenthe. It’s a shame because he had quality, and he always seemed to work hard when he played for us, there was just something not right about him

Re: Financial Fair Play

RIP - Gordon Neate

Just seen on Twitter that Gordon ' Fred' Neate has sadly passed away.

Not old enough to have seen him wear the hoops, but was our Groundsman for many many years, & do remember him working on the pitches and both EP & Madstad.

Condolences to his Family - A true RFC legend.
