Re: Next Season's Squad.

All 3 are gifted players, the balance is just not right. Unless we play 3 CBs I cant see those 3 in the middle working.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

We'll almost certainly get some players in this summer. I wouldn't pick a team and put Olise in a defensive CM midfield position, because I don't think it will ever get as far as needing to do that I'd like to see Richards get some game time as a left mid/winger. I think he could do a better job th...

Re: Pre season tour

finished 0-0. Some good saves from our keepers apparently. Sounds like Baldock had and missed a few chances That's ok. We don't need a striker according to some people. Also a clean sheet, so our CB issue is all sorted. Sweet. I would be more concerned if Baldock didn't have the chances to miss. Re...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

I wouldn't just pin it on N O. We had 5 loan players who all excelled. Nelson was great and a focal point for our attacks but Miazga outshone him in my eyes. I for one would rather bolster our CM or CB than use all what little we have on a CF. Goals win you games but clean sheets guarantee you points.

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

But given we already knew that, had been pretty open about it and taken lots of steps to manage the situation the embargo was pointless. The supposed embargo didn’t stop us doing anything we hadn’t already decided to do for ourselves. that's why its called soft. it was something that we were fully ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

My 2 cents - I think we have to be ruthless. Gomes does not have the time to be sentimental and needs to get cash in and wages off the books. Bod has done well in his time here and does carry a very good ethic in his game which I feel brings a bond with the fans however we cant have yet another inju...

Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

Because he was playing in a pub league and didn't have a decent record in that. Ligue 2 is a better Eredivisie?? Yeah jog on. How many Ligue 2 games did Meite play last season then mate? The point was that Meite had a loan spell at Ligue 2 and Nova played in the Top Dutch league and out scored him ...

Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

Joe Piggott is not good enough to play for Reading FC in the Championship. Also can people please stop mentioning/considering/wasting their time with Novakovich. If he had better overall loan spells than Meite (who was our top scorer last season) why shouldn’t he be considered? Because he was playi...

Re: Celtic Eye Moore

It may come down to what you want to look back on when you finish playing. Having a few SPL winners medals is far better than saying you played in the Championship and winning oxf*rd all.
Anyone who is saying Celtic isn't more attractive club to play for than us needs there head checked.

Celtic would need to part with several million and I can’t see us wanting anything other than that money up front considering how tight things are at present. Courtney Friday says dogs can't look up. What's that from again? Either from Spaced o...

Re: Rival Watch

I would take survival again for the next 2 seasons if Leeds and Fulham fail to get promoted in those 2 seasons.
Speaking to my Fulham supporting mate over the weekend who seems to think that they are too rich to need to worry about FFP and they will keep all there best players.

Re: Value the Squad

This means the CAM doesn't have to be a natural "midfielder" like Swift, Barrett, Olise etc. It can also be a "second striker" dropping deep, which McNulty could feasibly play, just like Loader has this season. Very unlikely he'll feature, but he could fit in if Gomes really wan...

If anything don't loan or soon-to-be out of contract players have more to prove and play for? What do you have to prove and play for, Green? Shop window maybe? They might want to prove they are good enough for the parent club. Or seeing the loan move as a step onto bigger and better things, that wo...

Re: Rival Watch

Not one to rejoice on anothers failures but I am very happy Leeds bottled. Such a classless set of fans and the bottle being thrown at Lampard really does sum up Leeds supporters.

Now let the insufferable Lampard creaming commence.

5 years to set yourself up for life. If a footballer does go into be a shop assistant he still has plenty of a working life to get promotions etc career progression, learn new skills.

Re: Ex Players

We are the mugs for giving an average at best player a decent contract. He had a few game spell last season where he was looking good, after that he was very bad. He isn't the 1st footballer to see out a good contract and certainly wont be the last. And of course if you can get away with it, everyon...

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Maneki Neko cracking goal that is only going to give him confidence going forward.
took it really well


Think he may have been told he needs to pull the trigger a bit more. Or gaining experience, as soon as he turned his marker he only had one thing on his mind.
