Re: Pre season tour

Hound Hmm injury prone John Swift playing his second game of the day, but no sign of Barrow or Novakovich for friendly #2

Barrett back in

Gomes is now just guessing. He's got no resources and won't be getting any so he's just shuffling about until something sticks, and I can't blame him.

Re: CONFIMRED - Bod to Millwall.

The Enfield Royal71 Controversial opinion but one of the worst strikers we have had in 15 years. Terrible goal return and just not a consistent performer. Millwall can have him and get relegated any way.

I haven't seen a more accurate post than this for quite some time. He was garbage.

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

I can't see it winning over the bus, the F1 loading and getting to the station takes less than 20mins. It would take you 30-40 mins to get to Rdg Station if you walked to the new Green Park station. Except when we play Newcastle and the bus loading goes to shit or midweek when there's a sell out an...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

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?

Hound Don’t think anyone is being negative are they?

Obita didn’t play any part

Did you see that as your cue to be negative then, Hound?!

Re: How do football supporters travel to football games?

Personally, I walk to away games. I suppose you could get the tram in Manchester and Sheffield and the ferry to Tranmere. LOts of Irish fans travel to Manchester/Liverpool using the ferries, fans on the IofW would get ferries..... Shared a taxi to Deepdale from Preston station with a Belfast based ...

Re: Barrow on the way ?

Wallsy Three transfer windows running he’s asked to leave. His fee plus wages off the books should all but be enough to secure Nelson Oliveira on a free (signing fee, agent fee, wages).

I think on this basis I'd have to agree. Not ideal but seems inevitable.

Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

You've just made the point yourself with your Harry Kane comparison! Nova might well take to the Championship really well. Worth giving him a go in at least pre season seeing as he cost us next to nothing. Kane was 17 when he was at Orient. Novakovich is 22 now and is clearly not cut out for top fl...

Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

Ligue 2 is a better Eredivisie?? Yeah jog on. How many Ligue 2 games did Meite play last season then mate? The point was that Meite had a loan spell at Ligue 2 and Nova played in the Top Dutch league and out scored him in comparison. We were comparing loan spells were we not? Or does that not fit y...

Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

If he had better overall loan spells than Meite (who was our top scorer last season) why shouldn’t he be considered? Because he was playing in a pub league and didn't have a decent record in that.

Re: Ex Players

When he left us he had the choice of QPR or Liverpool. He chose QPR because he thought he'd get more game time. He was wrong, and it was probably the worst decision of his career. He would have been first choice at Liverpool instead of second choice at QPR. He'd have earned more money, certainly wo...
