Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Can't help but feel this is pretty risky, and disappointed we've released two of our own promising young keepers to bring in someone else's for a year. But, Gomes has done well so far, so this kid must really have something about him, in which case it could prove a great move. Heard lots of encoura...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Agreed as well but I’d like to see Boadu in the first XI before passing judgement. Also think Swift can do a job as one of the two midfielders against teams that drop back, he had one of his best games in a Reading shirt against QPR who gave him the time and space. When teams press high, I don’t thi...

Re: CONFIMRED - Bod to Millwall.

Scored in 7 games for Stam, and started the next game 4 times. My memory is good. I recalled him scoring against Hull late on in the game Obita was badly injured at the end. Next game v Millwall he was on the bench. Yeah, didn't say it had never happened. Just that on 4 of 7 occasions it didn't. An...

Re: CONFIMRED - Bod to Millwall.

This is my recollection too. He rarely started under Stam. Even when he did score it wasn’t enough for him to start in the following game. Also bear in mind that last Stam 10 games he scored 7 goals, starting with the hatrick and a vital double against Burton. Stam would have been insane to drop hi...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

it is a very interesting experiment to be fair. one I think that will fall very flat very fast. blooding all the youngsters at once that is. I think they will start very brightly but the first game we lose it will go down hill from there as heads will drop and there wont be the seasoned heads to pu...

Re: Rival Watch

Hound Sounds like Newcastle want Bruce. Would unsettle Weds nicely before the first game of the season


A bit later into pre season would have been nicer but still good news. Bruce is a v good championship manager but a bit weak in the Prem IIRC so that’s a strange appointment IMO

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Not everyone chooses an occupation/lifestyle based off of money. Some people value the quality of their work and I would feel guilty earning as much as he does when he’s not doing anything for it if he’s not included in our squad But everyone thinks different thoughts and he may choose to take the ...

Re: Jack Stacey

It could have been. I always thought it was 500k for some reason but could be wrong. I just wouldn’t have thought Charlton (at the time who had just been relegated) would sell one of their better players for such a low amount

Re: Jack Stacey

Fosu being kept over Harriottis presumably on the basis that Fosu wouldn’t get a freak injury in an abandoned game that would keep him out for 2 years and ruin his career with us ? Not sure I agree fully with the point you’re making, Harriott was rarely used even before his injury so not convinced ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

I really like Gomes but he's made a mistake here. Losing one of our best midfielders for such a small fee, and to a bigger club, is a joke. If that fee lets us get someone better in (Baker being the obvious option) or lets us get two adequate first teamers, then it makes sense, but that seems unlik...

Re: Jack Stacey

Antonio was shite for us. Constantly tripped over the ball and when he did have it under control the crowd were more in danger of getting on the end of his crosses than his team mates were. He needed to leave to develop. Just because he's gone on to have a fairly decent career in the Premier League...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

He was terrible during Clement’s reign and I’d given up on him after the Leeds (A) and then Stoke (H) horror shows But fair play to him, he picked it up with a couple of decent performances after at Rotherham and QPR and during the second half of the season, he was OK. Consistency is a problem but h...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Was surprised to learn recently that Obita played 37 games that season. Blackett made a large portion of his appearances at centre back. A good 9 or 10 of them were off the bench though Blackett made 10 or so apps at CB and all of them were starts. He made 21 total apps at LB with only 1 being a su...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Novakovich is in the unfortunate position being the only* striker we have right now. That's why I include that position as a troubling area. *obviously we have Meite, Loader and Baldock able to play there currently but one is our Right winger, one played all his games for us (I think) as an attacki...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

He was excellent at Fulham but that was as a LWB. Him and Blackett forged a good partnership with our five at the back formation Don’t necessarily agree with your first point, Blackett was still chosen ahead of Obita on a number of occasions even in the second half of the season, including crunch ga...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

:shock: Sometimes I do wonder about you. Obita when fit is the best Left back we have in the squad by a mile. He really isn’t Selective memory? Do you not remember how good he was before his initial injury? You are a serious contender for the DD crown. The arrogance from some people on this forum i...
