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: Next seasons kit choice?

It’s sponsorship and it’s 20ft tall. I’m sure Macron would have wanted it up ASAP. Back to my point - both the kit - and the stadium updates - have been left till late. It was signed in April. You sound like carillion or kier making late payment excuses lol. yeah,defo shows a lack of organisation n...

Re: Will Gomes stay?

If he has any sense he would see how the season unfolds. I calculate that we have 11 Academy players who could break through this season and so that is the big hope IMO. If even 6 of these play 10 or more games that will fill a lot of gaps. that seems a recipe for disaster to me. fine to bring them...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

all a balance of risk and cost
and for me a 3 million price tag and high wages for Oliveira possibly doesn't outweigh the risk involved, for me.

wouldn't be too bothered if we looked elsewhere, happy enough if it happened

Re: Will Gomes stay?

He's seems to be getting more and more frustrated and who can blame him? Due to our financial position I can't see many coming in as we will struggle to get rid of players on high salaries. Does Gomes stay and risk relegation on his CV or will he take the pragmatic option and say I cant keep this t...

We would have explained our financial position b4 he signed on?


im not sure the exact extent of our FFP was widely known at that point. he certainly seemed to think we would be getting players in early for the new season.

Hound Gomes not holding back in his interview post match about needing new players asap

And I don’t just think he means getting Boadu to sign a deal



Yep. Not really happy about the situation, for sure

Re: Next Season's Squad.

En route home from our final game of last season I heard Bod being interviewed. You could tell he was really down at not even making the squad for that game. I got the impression he knew his time was up. He is a thoroughly decent guy and after such a promising start last season it was a shame that ...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Pointless ‘embargo’ really then. Soft hardly does it justice really ! Well no, it was in place as our forecast for the 2018/19 season showed we were at risk of breaching FFP - putting that in place to stop us spending in that period meant that we were unlikely to have a larger loss to contend with ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

looked promising, tailed off dramatically, happy to let him go

if we had time(and weren't oxf*rd with FFP) to spend rebuilding his confidence, and bringing him back into the team over time and reducing the errors/improving his weak points id say keep him, but we do not have that

Re: Jack Stacey

that^^^

he was played exactly as often as he deserved to, based on how he played when he did get chances to play. just like simon cox.
just because a year or so later he turned into a very good player who went on to surpass the team he left doesn't mean he should have played back then.

For sheer drama I think Karacan's upright against Swansea beats it out. Or Gunnarsson hitting the bar against Man United. still get flashbacks of that id given up, was drinking in the concourse, but then the crowd noise was increasing, reading were well in the game, my hopes were rekindled, I ran f...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

There is probably only a handful of clubs in the world who are not vulnerable to injury. We have to accept that we will need a little bit of luck on the injury front this season regardless of whether or not we get another 4 players in the door. The younger players I have listed above should really ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

its come from a JLow article about us turning down a bid for Barrow. Which completely contradicts the report from last week. I'm more than confused as to the situation. One minute we will sell everyone for a cut down price to get them off the wage book, next we won't sell Barrow for 10m because the...

Re: Financial Fair Play

The great Financial Fair Play con in full swing. Don't be surprised if the owners decided to walk away. who is the conman in this conspiracy theory? the FA/league for bringing in FFP rules? or are you saying the owners are pretending they have to adhere to FFP rules so they don't have to spend money?
