Re: Rumour - Ben Heneghan

Looks to have the hallmarks of a good signing. Shouldn't be hard to compete with Hibs either, even though we're broke. Similar sized Northern clubs may have an advantage if he doesn't want to uproot family or get homesick though. Just on a point of detail. We’re not broke. We could go and break our...

Re: Celtic Eye Moore

LOL at comparing winning a Championship medal (oldest league in the world, hugely competitive) with strolling though aScottish season to be handed a medal for not really having to do too much. As for who gets medals - when we won the league every member of staffgot a medal, there is no limit to how ...

Re: Celtic Eye Moore

I think from a footballing perspective, Celtic have a hell of a lot more to offer than us; European football, decent chance of silverware, playing in front of 50,000+ every other week, a level if exposure a world away from 90 seconds around 9:30 every Saturday night on Quest etc, etc. However, that...

Re: The way things are/were done

In all fairness this site is relatively neutral and fair minded aside from a few. But the people around me at the stadium/people on social media/people on the radio seemed to single out the same few every time. It’s like a weird obsession people have to pick on individuals, Swift seems to taken ove...

Re: The way things are/were done

Nonsense. He justified his time here by putting in many a good performance in his first season. Yep, second season was found out, but who wasn't? Unfortunately as he was Dutch, it meant you're twice as likely to be criticised. Good of you to preface your comments by warning us of the standard of an...

Re: Are we screwed?

The youngsters need to come through. I wouldn't mind a season or two of surviving while clearing bloated contracts off the books but it seems like there is no end in sight to the financial woes. Actually I think the opposite is the case. We’ve got a short term issue with the restrictions of FFP. Th...

Re: CONFIRMED: Novakovich to stay on loan nxt season, this time at Fotuna Sittard

Wish everyone would stop spunking themselves over Nova without really seeing him. Most of his goals were tap ins and penalties in a horrifically mediocre league. Four penalties out of 22, the rest decent efforts or poachers goals. I don't see anyone on here slagging off Harry Kane's two goals again...

Re: The way things are/were done

Sounds to like there’s is an element of self justification in what VDB is saying. He doesn’t have a great record as a player having got fed up and quit the game previously. He didn’t display much leadership while he was here and rarely did much to justify his place in the team or he ‘best ever cont...

Re: Financial Fair Play

So we’re no under a self-imposed transfer embargo until players get moved on. If things really are that tight with FFP then we really need to get the likes of Gunter, McCleary, Kelly et all off the books ASAP, even if it means taking less for them in order to increase interest in them. That sad, I’...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Also there's a question if footballing success is just dependent on who has the richest owner than what's the point? Reading could spend a decade working on their academy, building a squad, growing a supporter base and creating a fantastic team - only for their rivals to come along and offer all ou...

I guess when you are so ridiculously wealthy that it doesn't matter then you can do stuff that doesn't make financial sense.

CountryRoyal Holy shit. I just saw 2023 and thought "WOW seriously long contract!!", then I realized that only a 4 year contract. Where does the time go. :shock: :shock:

Anyway, great news, look forward to watching him develop.

Re: Ex Players

I see no reason to believe that Roberts would ‘refuse’ to play. That would be much more damaging to his reputation than to adapt his approach as he drew towards the end of his career. What ‘reputation’ would he worry about ? It’s not exactly unusual for players to slow up as they get older ! Having ...

Re: Spaculation Henri Lansbury

I would have said that central midfield should be our top priority - our only options there that Gomes is happy with are Swift and Rinomhota. As opposed to centre back where we have Moore to cover 2 positions and keeper where we don’t have a number 1 ? Fair points. Oh dear, our squad really is patc...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Really don’t think selling for a low fee plus add ons makes sense. Clubs know he has huge potential and we need to make sure we maximise our take. Good young English players are very valuable so as long as there’s is competition we will be strongly placed to get a good price. Low initial price and ...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

He won’t be the next Michael Owen as they play in different positions. So, what is his position? All I have seen in these senior games is a little boy lost and, according to other posters, playing out of position so needs to be excused. Have scored 8 goals in 9 games for the U23s I thought he was a...

Re: Value the Squad

And the fact that there appears to be plenty of clubs interested means his contract status is probably irrelevant. Clubs won't wait a year to get him for just the compensation amount, if they want him they will have to compete financially for him. The main risk will be he agrees a deal privately wit...
