Marc McNulty named in Scotland squad for games v Cyprus and Belgium. Hopefully will raise his profile further and perhaps add a few buck to his value esp. if he does well. And if he did well might his career at Reading be rebooted?

He deserves to be involved. Ideally we sell Walker and bring in Martinez with Southwood as our number two. ... 7276912641

Speaking of Martinez, is this a hint...

Jaakkola demonstrating that for any team that doesn't pass out from the back he's good enough at this level.

Good shot stopper but doesn't command his box very well IMO and we were constantly susceptible to conceding from set pieces. He was a better goalie than Walker is/Mannone but I never thought he was good enough personally

Meite adding a few £s to his value by being named on the 13 man shortlist for the Ivory Coast player of the season :lol:

So, Bod for 750k seems low, but probably fair. Kelly at £500k is bang on what I guessed; hopefully there’s a sell on though as if he makes it at Feyenoord then he could be worth quite a few £m. GMac might leave without a fee.

Popa (who really doesn’t give a shit) Gunter, Meyler and McNulty still need to find clubs. Stacey looks like he may have given us an extra £1+m from his sell on clause at Luton!

PistolPete It's tough, as players like Obita may not come back the excellent player he was, but to replace him, would take a good wad of cash.
That's assuming
1. We don't have the next Obita v2 ready to break through from the academy (just as Obita v1 did).
2. We actually need to replace a player who hasn't featured for almost 2 years - In effect he has already been replaced.
