Re: Will Gomes stay?

We have a great manager that seems to care. Jury still out? 'Great' is oft over-used, but a bit early for me to label him that. He's only been here 20-odd games? And as I recall, quite a few thought his prior record was a joke (including Tim Dellor). Not too sure how much Gomes really 'cares' about...

Re: Speculation: Ethan Amapadu

This deal was in the bag until he logged onto HNA? and saw the O/P spelt his name wrong.

Re: Triallist - Denzeil Boadu

Maybe for 10-15 minutes. Completely dropped off after and was anonymous for much of the half..
Holsgrove carried him a lot, looks a cracking player - good set pieces on him too.

Re: The 4 needed to complete the team

Some complications (£) but Baker is more realistic than it was this time last week (and player would return given a chance) and Ejaria is training with LFC u23s ahead of a loan move.

Can still see them being two.

Oliveira looks more like he's off to Greece by the day.

Re: Wenderson Rodrigues do Nascimento Galeno

Seems to now be staying until the end of August to see if he can get into the managers plans. That rules us out (for now) given the window ends early August for both permanent and loans.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Anyone know how the accounting for fees in works? Is there a spreading over seasons thing, or a loss of asset value in losing a player? Dont fees out get accounted for over the length of the contract so does this first get eaten up by any outstanding accounting of the fee we paid for Bod? Not sure ...

Re: Pre season tour

Stacey was contracted until 2019. He wanted game time we couldn't offer and believed we had youth of a similar level that was younger coming through (which we are realising now). The deal to sell him was structured by us (I've seen no fee and "5 figure fee" mooted) with a large sell on cla...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

So in the entire squad, we have only three foreigners/non academy players right? Yiadom, Meite and Barrow. And ones likely to be out the door. Whilst it looks scary on paper, it’s pretty impressive to have such a domestic based squad and is certainly a stark contrast to some of the random foreign n...

Re: Speculation: Keeper Watch

We’ve certainly set ourselves up to look a bit silly letting Hillson, Ward and Southwood go (if true) Still a little surprised if that is the case Why on Hillson?

Well looks like JLow found out before only for it to be denied. And has since been re-confirmed The fact he came back to train with the U23s did suggest he wasn’t going to be first team squad Not really, there are players who are apparently train8ng with the U23 squad initially who will be part of ...

Re: Wenderson Rodrigues do Nascimento Galeno

Wait, what? I'm not sure that's right or we'd have shipped my wife off there for a few months rather than enduring all this visa pain. It's definitely easier for Portugal though. Many Brazilians have Portuguese or Italian ancestry and use jus sanguinis which is a relatively quick and easy workaroun...

Re: Wenderson Rodrigues do Nascimento Galeno

Brazilians working in Portugal automatically get Portugese citizenship and we are still in the EU so he can legally work here. My understanding is that as an EU citizen already working here. He would automatically get a work permit. Wait, what? I'm not sure that's right or we'd have shipped my wife...

AthleticoSpizz Yeah...that’s why he was “shite” enough at Colchester for us to sign him...thank you for your contribution tho’ :roll:

Did OK at Colchester and was signed by a shit manager who had him at academy level. Nepotism reigns supreme.
