Snowflake Royal Yeah, thanks Google, I'm well aware what it means.


We'll we've scored before without actually putting the ball in the net so didn't want to completely rule it out.

:lol:

Point. Definitely a point.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

It's not like we're doing nothing or people aren't aware. We're in trouble but we're hardly a lost cause. Look on the bright side. If we do go down, we'll have got invaluable experience for a lot of promising Academy players at a higher level and got through our big financial worry of a season, so f...

The Enfield Royal71 Im talking numbers. If You are saying goals per minute is the basis of being a great striker you could say that the world's best striker is paco alcacer with a goal every 67 minutes.


Well tbh any other metric is stupid. It's nigh on impossible to score when you're not playing.

Nigh on?

Re: Will Gomes stay?

We can’t just rely on three teams being worse than us for the third season running though can we. As it is, this squad may be competitive in the EFL Trophy. But not the EFL Championship. Gomes knows this too, hence the sudden pressing comments on recruitment. Well, it'll be more competitive than a ...

Due to our financial position I can't see many coming in... We would have explained our financial position b4 he signed on? im not sure the exact extent of our FFP was widely known at that point. he certainly seemed to think we would be getting players in early for the new season. He also said we h...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

I for one am glad he's not coming back Yeah brilliant news. We've lost one of our strikers to a potential relegation rival and now the guy we wanted to replace him with looks to be going somewhere else, leaving us to scramble for a replacement who likely won't be as good as Oliveira or Bod. I think...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Jaakkola was actually plenty good enough under Clement, he just falls apart when asked play out. So given that's how Gomes plays and he was ooc that was an obvious decision.

Not sure I fancy Walker playing out either but he might be able to cope if not be comfortable.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Would explain Gomes' growing frustration if he's been there for the taking for weeks and we lose out because no one but Gourlay wants Sam Baldock or David Meyler.

Re: CONFIMRED - Bod to Millwall.

Controversial opinion but one of the worst strikers we have had in 15 years. Terrible goal return and just not a consistent performer. Millwall can have him and get relegated any way. Are you trolling? Wasn't he statistically one of the best goal scorers we've had in the last god knows how many yea...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

One game an all, but the back up keepers did pretty well against Sevilla, both pulled off some good saves under pressure.

So if he doesn't work out there is some degree of decent back up there.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Blackett has just come off a really good season, and we can always play one of the right backs on the left, Yiadom and Gunter both look comfortable there. If we bring in a centre back or Osho steps up, then McIntyre also becomes an option there. If we don't sign another central midfielder, and prob...

Re: Pre season tour

Not up on Seville’s team. How many of the first 11 played? how many of the first team squad? A little surprised folks sound flat because our kids lost the second half 2-1 to a serious Europa League team. On the back of two very solid wins wasn’t that a top result? I was expecting at least a 3/4 goa...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

We won't be bringing in a LB that's for sure. And surely we look stronger at CB than midfield and striker.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Wouldn’t disagree Ian, CM needs bolstering along with CB and CF. Huge pressure on Rino if we dint bring him in some help Happy enough with everything else, got options all over the place. Barrett another capable ACM Would be happy to keep Baldock tbh. He was helping out Nova a lot with his position...

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 th...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Having watched the Sevilla friendly I'm increasingly convinced we definitely do not want any more attacking midfielders. Swift - still rubbish in CM, only an AM Loader - can't lead the line, definitely an AM where he can drift between the lines and drop deeper Olise - great prospect and AM probably ...

Re: Triallist - Denzeil Boadu

Looked very interested to me, committed and charging around the pitch. Just didn't look anywhere near Rino's ability.

A year fit and playing in the U23s might do him the world of good, but he didn't seem first team material.

Re: Pre season tour

Is 19 a trialist? Don't recognise who he'd be from position. Looks a mix of very handy and a bit raw. Liking the look of Holsgrove and Nova. Richards still looks a bit soft. 19 is Boadu innit? That's the trialist right? Bugger. Who was marking him then? Hmm, Richards, but he drifted well and there ...
