Re: Speculation: Ethan Amapadu

This lad has the same number of first team appearances that Omar Richards as. He’s younger than Danny Loader and the same school year as Olise People are saying we will struggle if the team is full of inexperienced youngsters Of course if they are other people’s inexperienced youngsters then that i...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Maybe, just maybe we're using pre-season to try a few things out. Working out angles and patterns. What might work What might not given this pretty important rule change* Some times we got caught out. Several times we also sprung the press by passing around it or chipping it into a spare midfielder....

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Baker was probably the nail in his coffin. In Baker we had a guy who wanted to play , to contribute to the team for the full 90 minutes of the match. Was happy to play in whatever Gomes assigned him too. Baker had far fewer Championship appearances too prior to coming on loan. There's always the ch...

A couple of Baker's half way line attempts from last season would be right up there.

Re: Pre season tour

I'm not sure what the relevance of signing Aluko has with whether Stacey stayed or not. Aluko would still have been signed even if we'd guaranteed Stacey first team football. He was a marquee type signing (lol) to appease the fans (plus Stam to certain degree) because we didn't get Oliveira. Aluko p...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

I can get my head round the fact its an awful idea we need cash now, not in 3 years time when he has made 50 appearances 2 million barely scratches the surface of what we need now, and he probably isn't on a great wage, so no real saving there Some bloke from Brizzle has just gone for 13m quid, and...

Tranmere 1 Reading 3 - PO SF 1st Leg. In all my years, this was the most perfect away performance I ever witnessed.

Re: Speculation - Players From The Relegated Trio

Well we know at least Wigan wanted Blackett. Dont know what everyone's issue with Richards is. I don't have an issue with Richards. At this moment in time, he's not a championship level LB, in his last three starts as a LB, we've conceded four twice and he should have been sent off the other time s...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I think it was Harriott who delivered the corner for the winner against Wigan.

He's not likely to be around next season but that's as good as anything I've seen for the vast majority of the season. Left foot, Inswinging, no frills just on the money and in the danger area.

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

I thought Joorabchian was only involved in the appointment of Gomes as his agency deals almost exclusively with Portugese and Brazilian based clubs and players and if the owners were determined to go Portugese, to be fair, he is an expert on that market. I reckon every loanee was on the radar to so...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

It does seem the impressive last 20 are maybe not totally reflective of the full game tbf Think it goes back to the point RR made about how we struggled to retain possession. The two occasions we've played this formation we haven't had our best "hold up" player in Oliveira available. He h...

Yup. Thanks to SCIAG , Royals & Racers and others for their regular updates on this and other threads especially since it seems the club can only sporadically be arsed.

Re: RUMOUR - Jonson Clarke-Harris

If money is as tight as we are lead to believe, any decent big from a Dutch side for Novacovich will be taken - his stock is high over there and can easily see one of the bigger Dutch clubs taking him in the summer. Loader will go on loan next year I think and the other 3 are all sellable - so even...

Re: RUMOUR - Jonson Clarke-Harris

Hmmm. We play one upfront. We are looking like signing Oliveira and have Novacovich to come back. Plus Bod, Baldock, McNulty and Loader on the books. If this is an alternative to Oli should we get relegated then fine. But as well as? Don't really see it unless we're sure of shifting two or three of...

Rob Dickie also leap-frogged other centre half contenders that pre-season but he decided he wanted to play first team football rather than be a 4th choice centre half/ 3rd choice right back. Not quite what happened. Dickie was actually one of the players who lost out under Stam, who had this weird ...

Think there was an element of thinking Watson had more potential hence not making more of an effort to keep Stacey Glad someone actually mentioned Watson. He was obviously our back up R...
