Re: Financial Fair Play

Comparison to Coventry is just wrong. The football club (and its owners) have never owned the freehold or leasehold to the stadium. They were always a tenant to a council controlled entity. SISU's original beef was the rent didn't go down when they were relegated from the Premier League and remained...

Re: José Gomes whelmguage

I'm still not drinking the Koolade. I found his post match on Saturday a bit Adkins-esque. We train well, we have good movement, we were positive, etc etc but the reality was we didn't play well nor create enough chances. I think with this transfer investment and chicanery by Uncle Dai & Big Nig...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Very happy with Ovie’s loan to buy move. Really rated him last season. His energy and work rate meant we could allow our attackers to stay further up the pitch and not track back (yes Barrow, I’m talking about you). Plus he has the best feet I’ve think I’ve ever seen. For me this could be massively ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Rafael Cabral

Regardless as to whether the new signing is a better/more/experienced keeper than the 19 yr old here on loan, the fact that Rafael has been brought will be an immense kick in the teeth to Virginia's confidence; he must think that the manager doesn't rate him. As confidence is a key aspect for a kee...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Had it on decent authority that the EFL has approved a transaction that has allowed Dai to buy the training ground at Bearwood at a profit, hence freeing up our recent FFP restrictions. The ground was already sold last season. However, it does also feel like some good structuring of deals will help ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Think there are some big numbers being banded around, when the reality is that they won’t be anything like it. One report seems to state that Joao is an initial £800k deal plus lots and lots of add ons. Spread all that over 4 years and it is may be £1m per year plus wages. Rafael is a Free transfer....

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

A player in Charlie Adam's position, makes, say 20 long passes. One puts the CF away, who scores, another gives Barrow (say) a 1-on-1 and he wins a pen, which is scored. Five are dangerous crosses into the box but Meite fails to convert The rest just evade the onrushing winger or strike, or are int...

I'm sorry, and I appreciate what club1871 is doing and it really is needed, but today it was embarrassing. Fully if happy clapping and it only took Wednesday once to really pipe up and they sounded like a proper mob. Full of lads having it and ours looked like a bunch of lite boys on a happy day ou...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Could always send Virginia back to Everton if he isn’t going to get any games. Suspect we’re not paying his wages so long as he plays regularly Notice Southwood didn’t start yesterday. That isn’t a good sign. Same happened to Ward at Northampton last season. Keepers need to starting if they go on lo...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

Starting line up for me was a Brazil-style 4-2-2-2 with Barrett as the left AM and Loader as the right AM. I definitely got the impression that Loader was defensively supposed to cover that area. At the start of the second half we tried swapping them with the notional strikers but I don't think tha...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

The benefits of being a pessimist are that you can lose 3-1 and not be disappointed. The uncontrollable out the way first: Wednesday handled the ball on the line without the referee seeing it. Should really have been a goal if they hadn't cheated, as they did cheat then it should have been a red an...

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

First few minutes, played No. 10. Used his experience well, avoided the Hollywood ball and played very neat stuff. Remainder, played deeper and pumped Hollywood pass after pass to Wednesday or into touch. But did wipe out their striker brilliantly (and fairly). Also out in a very nasty looking chal...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (h) sponsored by new season optimism

AthleticoSpizz Give the kid a fair crack (remember those early Habsi days?).

One thing that RFC always tends to have is decent keepers...eventually

AAH was signed as a back up to the newly signed Jonathan Bond, iirc. That went well. Highly rated U21 international without much experience.
