Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

I think I'm inclined to agree with Brobot. Burst onto the scene as a keen youngster, but never really looked like he knew what he was doing.

Re: CheLOLsea

Phil Jones is just a big useless clumsy gurning lump.

Well done Chelsea, nice to see them stick one over on Mourinho again. Well, at least the slightly more tolerable of the two possible crap outcomes anyway.

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Big Hec would be a great signing IF he rediscovers his form. He was terrible for Hull last season and his final season here at Reading. Marriott from Peterborough, Ojo from Scunthorpe and Carey from Plymouth would be great signings Partly why I'd only want a perm rather than loan. I think there's a...

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

Echo that our tickets are excellent value. There are League Two clubs who don't charge much less than we do ffs.

After signing Yiadom I'm almost back on the bandwagon. Now if we can just flog Gunter next week I'd buy in a heartbeat.

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Another thought - this does mean we could revive the 'wing-back' idea. I guess that both Obita and Yiadom would be better suited to a more free-flowing, attacking role. But then I hear that Clement isn't keen on that style. Something like --------------------------------Manone ---------------------...

Good shout. He would do well back here.

Not claiming as my idea, already talked about a page or so back.

Re: Rumour: Denis Kolinger

Although a recently relegated team has two positive factors.

Potential bouncebackability. And parachute payments. Plain and simple Brom could easily improve his wages and talk up a chance of top flight return.

I don't think it's particularly clear either way whether he'll stay or go.

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Lol @ the idea of Cardiff buying Gunts for the Premier League. They'd have to be bonkers. I reckon he would be more suited to the football in the Premier League, just as he always seems to perform better on the international stage. Well given he couldn't even keep Shaun Cummings out the side the la...

Re: Building for next season

The benefit of being at the game is that you have a much bigger picture than that on the screen. It's also what others don't do that matters. Last year there was a lack of cohesion and personal responsibility. Too much shrugging of shoulders and leaving it to somebody else from some individuals. Th...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Absolutely delighted. We've needed a first choice right back since Stephen Kelly left. Watson had potential and made a very good start, but his injury scuppered that and he doesn't seem to have impressed on his return in the U23s. Hopefully we can also sign a left back, Watson and Obita can properly...

Re: Strikers.

Isn't Novakovich a bit of a target man? If so that'd make 3 strikers here next season all of whom are a similar type so you'd think really what we should look for is something a bit different, perhaps in the mould of a Dominic Samuel type. I wouldn't have described him as a target man, but I believ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

Regardless of how common it is, with our huge wage bill, it's pretty clear we can't afford to be paying off players who would need to be replaced just to move them on. Particularly when they're not even in our top 10 worst performers.

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

I thought he was alright to be honest. Some poor games, some decent. If I was to rank our midfielders based on performance this season it would probably be:

Kelly
Bacuna
Edwards
Evans
Berg
Swift
Aluko

This is nothing more than damning him with faint praise of course.

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

I hate myself for this, but I think I'll check out some of our transfer dealing before deciding whether to renew. The season tickets will be for the same club regardless of transfer activity No! Really!? You don't say. I thought if I renew in July we'd become Man City, thanks for setting me straight.

Have to agree with NCS, Gunter is way too soft to be a regular at CB. He gets beaten regularly on the back post, doesn't know how to get tight, rarely wins a physical battle, pulls out of challenges...

I brought this up in the academy thread but football manager (not the bible I know) changed Loader from a ST to a LW in their January update. Anyone got any idea what that is about?
