Re: Leeds (A) Saturday February 22nd

They are not in the Premier League yet...... :roll: I just suggested what I expected the price to be. But seriously though, if there is a £30 cap in the premier league, I just don't understand how there isn't a Championship cap in place. Wasn't it argued that the TV rights in the Premier League mak...

Re: Player of the season so far...

Right now, I think I'd give it to Méïté, but think a number of players (including Rafael and Morrison) are in with a shout. Let's see how the next 10 games pan out.

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

It's almost like Citeh have got more resources available to cover such things than we do. No excuse. If the club had any sense they would be creative. Perhaps there is someone who takes a major interest in the Academy sides, has decent knowledge, goes to lots of games.... Perhaps the club could app...

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

If it's good enough for Michael Hector it's good enough for Andre Burley. What? Hector had a few months in the LOI, with Dundalk when he was 18. Would have been longer but he injured his knee and was out for a while. Both Burley and Odimayo played the full 90 in Waterford's opening game of the seas...

As per Twitter: Seems strange.. They hinted that John O'Shea had some influence. Yep. Interview is in the Irish Times (behind a paywall), so here it is in full. Waterford are a decent side - same with Derry City (where Adam Liddle has gone). Amid the flurry of loan deals being completed in time for...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ayub Timbe.

How do you pronounce Timbe? Timber or Timbay? Or Timbee? I'm guessing it will be Timb-eh, but add the Reading accent to it and we'll be saying Timbay. In fact we won't be saying it at all as his name is Masika. There's a link on the wikipedia page here to listen to the pronunciation. sounds like Ti...

Yes it does. I don't know why they couldn't be arsed to have proper names like us. Proper English names so we can understand them. And why they have to speak a different language baffles me too. It's not like English is difficult. Even toddlers manage it FFS. And don't even get me started on them i...

Sure, but just 20 of those in the last two years. And how did he get a work permit? By not needing one as he has dual nationality ?

Re: Rival Watch

AthleticoSpizz Lol yeah Murhino, but which way rivals in this league should we be looking?


Shrug. The ones around us I guess. Or every team in the division. But not focussing on just one team, that aren't particularly near us anyway.

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

Hendo Looks like Teddy Howe is off to Blackpool after impressing them in the FA Cup, on loan for the rest of the season.

Probably wise with Yiadom coming back in a couple of weeks.


Yeah, this is good news. With half a season proper football under his belt , he can be No.2 RT to Yiadom next season.
