Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Good move for him, bad move for us and no way Celtic can afford £3m - £5m for an 18 year old with limited Championship exposure. No chance. Yeah but they do love their French youngsters. Dembele, Ntcham, Edouard.. might be tempted. He was born in England I think? Dunno, spoke to him once when the U...

Re: Rumour - Rob Dickie

Cooper was decent enough with the ball. He just dropped at least one horrendous error every single game when i saw him

Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

sure it'd be a great move. Big crowds, european football (for a game or 2 anyway).

In the post virus world, just the sort of player I want us to keep hold of though

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

Pretty much assume none of the other ooc players will be offered a deal either in that case

Re: Finance

yes read through that. Very noticeable how little we've made on player sales compared to some like Bristol City who have played the market very well What we did have prior to the lockdown is some sellable assets. Could have quite likely been able to sell of Swift, Moore, Ricahrds, Puscas and one or ...

Re: Any player you recall who virtually beat us on their own.

Didnt beat us on his own, but thought Reece James at Wigan last year was so ridiculously head and shoulders above the rest of their team

Re: Finance

Bankers get an unfair reputation. That job absolutely takes over your life and is incredibly high stress. They get paid so much because they do essential, high-skilled work that nobody would choose to do otherwise. The people who are really stealing a living: - Most agents, including estate agents....

Re: Finance

Yeah but come on - to be a champ footballer takes a hell of a lot more effort than a 27k p/a year generally. They are basically employed for the age of 8, deal with all sorts of pressure and disappointments, play in front of 30k knobheads calling your a pcunt and criticising your every move etc Fin...

Re: Finance

its an odd one that 7k limit. I can see the benefits, but how does it work if a team gets relegated from the Premier, and a player is on 50k a week? Also, if any sort of normality is returned, nearly all players will be on 7k. Where is the motivation to push yourself for a bigger wage? Or will bonu...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Zip I can’t see there being any refunds. Maybe a discount off next season’s ST of something like £50?
That’s of course assuming we get to have a new season.


yeah, expect it'll be some new deal for future years rather than a refund

Re: Ngel Howe on radio

yeah never like to judge too much- esp when it comes to what people do with their money

mind you, unlike Howe to publicly air his frustration about it - suspect it might be a case of one or two holding things up

Actually a decent interview. Howe doesn’t sound too happy with quite a few things - esp the players not agreeing a deferral to wages
