Re: Will Gomes stay?

He won't leave but it may sway his view on signing a new deal, depending on how we do of course.

His contract expires next summer doesn't it?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Great news on Olise - very important to get him signed up as a potential star in the making - just hope this can be a bit of a recruitment momentum to get a few much needed (and clearly wanted) players through the door.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I would have given McNulty a shot rather than Baldock At least McNulty has been scoring goals recently,Baldock just seems to run around a lot not really doing that much Not sure. McNulty only seems able to score at a level/team where he's getting lots of chances. Baldock is a proven Championship go...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

According to local press in Norwich Oliveira has agreed personal terms with AEK. Very disappointing if he ends up in Greece having been training with us this summer. Was he actually training with us or did he just hire our fitness coach to keep him/get him fit when he wasn't otherwise engaged with ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Happy enough with Walker as a back up. He did ok for us bar one game really last year Yep, Walker is more than capable at this level especially as back up - probably not as you absolute no 1 but wouldn't be paniced to see him in the team on 3rd August - he had one mare at WBA and seems to be stuck ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

The fact that he’s been training here over the summer and has been reported as having a medical tomorrow doesn’t influence your thinking ? By reported as having a medical, do you mean one post on here? Not saying it won't happen but wouldn't take a post on here as a report. Happy to be pointed towa...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Criminally under used by Stam. Decent player, sadly held back by injuries. He'd be a good second choice, but with Nova coming through and Meite able to move in from the wing, probably best to shift him and help afford Oliveira, who is technically much better. I honestly cant see us getting Oliveira...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Well no, it was in place as our forecast for the 2018/19 season showed we were at risk of breaching FFP - putting that in place to stop us spending in that period meant that we were unlikely to have a larger loss to contend with when 18/19's figures are real and not calculated as part of next year'...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

If we are under a ‘soft embargo’ which allows a one in/one out transfer policy Incan’t quite see how we are adhering to that. Kelly has gone, Sidoel has gone although he was never a first team squad member, likewise Ward. Presumably the players we didn’t retain at the end of last season don’t count...

Re: Pre season tour

Better than losing to them I suppose But yeah it’s obvious a pretty low standard oppo This is great because on paper we've got some glaring weaknesses but are still doing well. The players will enjoy this. They'll gain fitness. They're combining. And the strikers are getting used to hitting the bac...

From Despair To Where? John Smith's been hacked by a random cliche generating spambot and it's actually an improvement.

There's just no pleasing you lot is there. What do you want me to say about us taking Everton's youth keeper on loan?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Listening to Gomes on the website, he is clearly starting to get frustrated at the lack of movement into the squad at the moment.
