Re: BFTG - Cardiff

It's not really true that with WBs we only have one defender on the wing, is it? Since we have an extra CB and the three can shuffle left-right we more or less have two defenders per wing, don't we? We were letting in goals pre-season because the 442 FBs were stranded up field, once because McIntyr...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Can anyone clear up what happened. I got in the car after the game and Tim and Adie were talking about a Tweet that Yak had sent out being a bit cryptic, then a few minutes later they said it was because a 'fan' had tweeted Yak with something quite nasty. Also, I heard that Tim was bitching about t...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

They've been treated atrociously. Fair enough getting Popa or someone who has never performed for us to train with the kids but treating 2 long term servents of the club who have been nothing but superb both on and off it so poorly is really shit. And tbh I think they both have something to offer t...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

love em both to bits but theres no way we can continue to pay them 20+k per week to not play, so they need to be shifted on by whatever means necessary. its not a charity, and for the club there can be no real room for sentiment. that said, any fans dishing out stick to them on twitter are grade A c...

Re: Any more out the door?

Hound hmm, JLow reckons the club are blocking loans for McCleary and Gunter and will stay instead. Odd if true.


negotiation tactic.imo

we would prefer sales, but if they don't go through/cant be done there is more time to arrange loans after deadline

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader to Wolves

Sessegnon about to go for 25 million in last year of contract. Higher profile so higher fee but to drop down to 5m? That's a lot. a whole nother level(or two) of proven player at the time though You genuinely think theres a 20m gap between the 2? right now? in todays market? yes.i think I do. as lo...

Re: Kenedy - Rumour

Are we about to get £50m from Wolves for Loader ? :shock: We seem to have a decent relationship with Chelsea - if he's not in Lampard's plans, they may well let him come for game time and pay a large % of his wages. Just seems a small fortune is being expended - I assume there's some offset to come...

Re: Kenedy - Rumour

another cracking deal if it goes through.
id imagine theres some sort of guarantee he plays if fit, and we will only be paying a fraction of his wages if that happens.
