Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a) sponsored by Lawrie Sanchez

That was a bit rubbish performance wise wasnt it? Just squeaked through on penalties. If that's the best we can play then we'll probably be playing Wycombe next year. Rafael looks a solid keeper. New set of players, messing around with formations, players out of position, league cup first round wit...

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

Ever heard the term ‘Undisclosed’ GWR? Yes. So lets say each transfer is half what is reported. They would still far exceed what we can afford. I dont get it. if we have all this money, why did we go for Charlie Adam and Michael Morrison. Clearly someone has pushed a button to say, screw it, lets s...

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Passing should always be played with a purpose. For example, when Moore and Miazga pass between each other, it often leaves me frustrated because I always wonder what the purpose of the pass is. Simple to say, but a pass should only be made if it puts the receiver in a better position than the pass...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

From Saturday? Fair enough if that's how you see it but a well hit finish on a close 1 on 1 - a free header from 8 to 10 yards out are not high percentage saves for a keeper to make - he will be disappointed with the 3rd as could have got down quicker but may have been surprised that Miazga was tur...

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Pass completion does not tell the whole story, Pass completion is always going to be low if you are playing forward passes into space which your teammates don't have the nous/can't be arsed to get on the end of. This will be Charlies problem at Reading, a team full of players who refuse to find spac...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

Of course Oliveira is better than Baldock. Baldock might run around a bit but ultimately he's a League 1 striker who may score you 10 goals in the Championship, if you're lucky. That's a very good season for a player like him and he'd have to play out of his skin to achieve it. Oliveira does not no...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

scumbag it's laughable that anyone says we don't need Oliviera, he transformed our season.


Hooper has a far superior record at this level as a goal scorer. plays more games and scores far more goals.

I think he’d certainly consider going.

CountryRoyal We should just give him a pro contract and then if he still wants to go abroad loan him out.


We made him an offer and he's turned it down

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think it’s down to both players to decide as both are still under contract. Gmac’s is 32 in a few days and Gunter turns 30 this July. Do they look for one last move this summer, or do they stay and contribute both on and off the pitch and then leave on a free in 12 months. Or does the club recogn...

Re: Rumour Meite back to France?

Royalwaster We're not going to shift players by paying up contracts ... rather it will be by letting them go on a free. No point wasting money on paying up contracts.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Good to hear Jose has turned Novakovich’s loan club down regarding another loan and said the striker is not for sale. Interesting summer ahead for our younger players! If Oliveira does come in as well then I think we’ll almost certainly see the back of Baldock and Jon Dadi. ...and McNulty . If it w...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Re. 1st paragraph, I'd like to think we could sign one of them permanently by getting rid of the dead wood. Signing a second one permanently may be dependent on us selling Swift and/or Moore. And yes, getting another 1 or 2 re-signed on a loan again would be great. Re. 2nd paragraph, that scouting ...
