Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

So Holsgrove has gone permanently to Spain as per the OS. Seems odd to me that we never gave him a chance here. Have we received a lot of money for him? Doubtful I would have thought. Or do we simply think he is not good enough. We have had a lot of Academy lads break through but increasingly there...

Re: Veljko Paunović - Whelmgauge

That was when he first took over, thicko. He has been at the club enough time now to give us his views on the squad and aims going forward. Idiot. Well, he seems a decent guy, says the right things but then all new managers use the same slogans and statements, they just replace the name of the club...

Re: Season 20/21

Interesting one, I would have though in a 4231 or 352 he'd be suited to being one of the deeper midfielders along with laurent, rinomhota and swift so probably would have had quite a few games this year. Think we actually look a bit short there now. Hopefully its a good move for him though, not sure...

Re: RUMOUR: Rafael

It'd be a shame and a loss if Rafael was sold and I wouldn't feel comfortable going until January with an unproven but promising Southwood and the youngsters as GK options, assuming Sam Walker leaves too. Rafael is a good keeper and didn't make many mistakes at all, he's not the most amazing shot s...

Re: RUMOUR: Rafael

He's a good solid keeper but wouldn't be too upset to see him leave, I'd be willing to bet there are plenty around of a similar standard available for less than we'd get for him. Maybe even give Southwooda run.

Re: Season 20/21

I wonder who has made the decision to sell holsgrove. Bowen before he left? Has paunovich seen enough already, or is the owner happy to sell anyone he doesn't see as being a 'name'?

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Never seen him play or heard of him before 5 minutes ago but I've just seen a picture of him and I'm afraid to say he'd get eaten alive in the championship.

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Wonder if Dorsett might be seen as a serious option? Obviously with a new manager everything is up in the air, and he hasn’t had any involvement so far, so probably not. Samuels at left back could be a reasonable back up if Richards is going to be the main man all season? Not sure if Dorsett is inj...

NewCorkSeth So. Is he a Serb?

According to the press release yes he is.

Also good to see the club give US soccer the respect it deserves by repeatedly calling it 'the mls'

Re: What goes on inside our owners' heads?

As well as the obvious public unrest, things are an absolute mess with the back room staff at the stadium too, even before the disruption of the pandemic. Based on some of the information I’m receiving, the owners have gone from honestly naive to just being negligible. Why would the owners being ge...

Re: (Soon to be) CONFIMRED - some kind of Serbian bloke

Sutekh . This would seem to be borne out by the fact those being “replaced” are just being moved in to other roles and it all appears “friendly”.


Doesn't sound like this is the case, Bowen apparently not happy and not yet agreed to the change of role.

Re: Season 20/21

Really hope the new guy keeps this shape/system, think there is a lot of potential with it. Back 3 probably need time to bed in, but it suits a lot of our players. Must admit from whatI watched it looked promising, certainly from an attacking point of view. Bit concerned that we’ll be very vulnerab...

Re: Your realistic 5 or 6 signings

Ya man Eddie now confirming we're in for him. lol. Ya man Eddie is risking his reputation by stating that. Im sure we are considering him as much as Sunderland were considering Zlatan. Would say it's closer to Wolves signing Ruben Neves or Cardiff signing Craig Bellamy or Brighton signing Vicente. ...
