Re: Pre season tour

Stacey was contracted until 2019. He wanted game time we couldn't offer and believed we had youth of a similar level that was younger coming through (which we are realising now). The deal to sell him was structured by us (I've seen no fee and "5 figure fee" mooted) with a large sell on cla...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

So in the entire squad, we have only three foreigners/non academy players right? Yiadom, Meite and Barrow. And ones likely to be out the door. Whilst it looks scary on paper, it’s pretty impressive to have such a domestic based squad and is certainly a stark contrast to some of the random foreign n...

Re: Speculation: Keeper Watch

We’ve certainly set ourselves up to look a bit silly letting Hillson, Ward and Southwood go (if true) Still a little surprised if that is the case Why on Hillson? I couldn't disagree more on that one. Or Legg, or Ward. Not judging any - not really watched them bar a few from Ward, and I’m sure Gome...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Well looks like JLow found out before only for it to be denied. And has since been re-confirmed The fact he came back to train with the U23s did suggest he wasn’t going to be first team squad Not really, there are players who are apparently train8ng with the U23 squad initially who will be part of ...

Re: Wenderson Rodrigues do Nascimento Galeno

Wait, what? I'm not sure that's right or we'd have shipped my wife off there for a few months rather than enduring all this visa pain. It's definitely easier for Portugal though. Many Brazilians have Portuguese or Italian ancestry and use jus sanguinis which is a relatively quick and easy workaroun...

Re: Wenderson Rodrigues do Nascimento Galeno

Brazilians working in Portugal automatically get Portugese citizenship and we are still in the EU so he can legally work here. My understanding is that as an EU citizen already working here. He would automatically get a work permit. Wait, what? I'm not sure that's right or we'd have shipped my wife...

AthleticoSpizz Yeah...that’s why he was “shite” enough at Colchester for us to sign him...thank you for your contribution tho’ :roll:

Did OK at Colchester and was signed by a shit manager who had him at academy level. Nepotism reigns supreme.

You're welcome. :roll:

All basis covered there... Tad bemused with all the Walker dislike. Still young in GK terms, and was bought on the back of his rave reviews at Colchester....even Marcus was perceived as sh1t by Fulham. Keepers are a rare breed, given a bit of confidence and a run in a successful team with a decent ...

Succinct thread from the brilliant Martin Calladine. We're not looking too healthy.

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

And of course, the financial clusterfcuk of 2017/18 is exacerbated this season by the fact we made a profit in 2016/16 which mitigated against it last season but is now off the books for FFP. The other issue is that we don’t know what the loss is going to be in 18/19. A bloated squad won’t have hel...

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

I'm assuming it's the reasons above. Alternatively could another reason for a soft embargo be that we've done something which isn't in the spirit of ffp - ie trying to balance a hefty loss by bringing in a stupid fee for sending a player to a club overseas owned by the same owners? Just an afterthou...
