Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

History suggests we probably need two serious options at each full back position. I don’t know - genuinely - if Bowen considers Watson and Araruna serious options, or if we have enough midfield options to use Rino there. As for left back, I’m sure the same three players could cover there (and if no...

Re: Jackson Irvine

Is there actually anything in this rumour? Not seen it mentioned anywhere (though not looked very hard tbf) I think it's pure spaculation at this point, can't see any news stories linking Irvine to anyone right now. Funny I found a story of him discussing Hull's play-off ambitions in Nov 2019, this...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

parky Looks alright till you realise that last number is a 1.


Those are literally terrible, and must have been designed by someone who has never had to watch or commentate on a game. Poor old Tim Dellor has no hope of getting the players right if he's trying to decipher crap like that.

Re: Swift to... Southampton

I'd like Leeds and West Ham to stay up until we next get promoted, then suffer a triple relegation and go out of business so we never have to play either of them again. Sheffield U are fine now the taint of Warnock is long gone. I like seeing them cause some ruckus with the big boys. Especially wit...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Or do what the big clubs do and put a buy back clause in. We are producing a lot of amazing talent for league 1 that then gets swallowed up by our rivals. I don’t know why we don’t do that more. Let’s say when we sold Dickie to Oxford we had put a 1 million buy back clause in we would not be lookin...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Leeds

The Brighton move was much more recently than 2017 surely! Wasn't it the summer before last, so 2018, which would mean his contract runs through the next two seasons? It was summer 2018, correct. And he was given a 5 year contract, so he's here for another 3 years (unless we sell him of course) htt...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Would have been interesting to hear BT's thoughts on Cooper who was apparently not wanted by the club. Been a quality player. Honestly, listening to the podcast, I got the feeling he was desperate to appear that he knew how good the academy lads were but I just had a feeling he wrote a fair few if ...

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

Yeah just came on here to say this. If true it’s bloody ridiculous. It is absolutely essential Moore is now sold. We cannot have a situation where we have one player on £35k a week and another on a grand a week. Osho is precisely the sort of player I thought Bowen would want to keep. I can see him ...

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

According to Talk Reading, the contract that Osho was offered was 50% of what he was on when he was a second year pro at 19 years old. Surely that's bullshit, but no wonder he didn't accept it if it's true. Yeah just came on here to say this. If true it’s bloody ridiculous. It is absolutely essenti...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

It is highly ironic that we seem to only have an academy these days to feed our local league 1 clubs I also wouldnt be surprised if the team who will not be named get promoted with our rejects next year.

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

Osho is 22 in a couple of weeks, by that stage in his career, Obita would have played about 70 games in the Championship, Gunter probably more than 100 in the Championship or higher. Osho has 7. He absolutely needs to get regular games. He'd probably get a reasonable number playing for us, but not t...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

It wasn't really the same side under Stam in his second season though. Our two best and most influential players on the season, at GK and ST, left or basically played no part. We replaced Beerens with Barrow - fine, but our midfield also fell apart. Williams, Swift, Kelly, Berg and Evans vs Berg, K...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Next season it the centenary of our League membership, although I'm not sure how a 1920/21 revival kit of navy stripes with navy shorts would go down with the fans. Was that our original kit? I would go for a remake of whatever our first kit was. We can have a break in hooped kits for one season. T...

With the potential signing of Joshua Ishaele Jacob-Heron Hunt-Laurent, I already feel we are going to be massively overstocked with CM options next season. LB is a concern. I’m not convinced Richards has 46 games in him, we have to be looking to strengthen those LB / LM / LF roles. Full backs in ge...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

This run of 9 games should not be used to judge any manager in a positive or negative light. Too many factors involved and just not a realistic barometer unless you think we'll always finish seasons in July when we had nothing to play for and a number of players involved on effectively a 1 month co...
