If he was as good as we all reckon he is why is it that he’s going to a languishing Serie B club?

I don’t disagree that he’s not been given a proper chance but I have an inkling this one might not bite us in the butt.

Is he the only one who left today or have I missed some others going?

on the face of it it looks like he wasn't given a chance at reading despite being sucessfull elsewhere and so on. but because of that there must be something in training that makes him not worth taking a chance on. surely just based on his stats alone you would give him more of a chance - how bad must he be to convince the club otherwise?

People think he's probably good enough for our level. He's joining a team at our level.

It’s a strange one, huh? Not sure what to think. He’ll play at some level. As with other playas, that level will be determined.

Was thinking today, given short time at new club, he’s convinced them very quickly?

But maybe they wanted to sign him permanently at the outset in the Summer anyway?

We didn’t sell then, but now we do. Different fee negotiated now? Who knows.

(Edit: Shameful opportunity afforded our Academy grads again?)

Yeah but you have to see this in context - we need the money, his contract was up at the end of the year, and he was hardly going to play with several players ahead of him in the pecking order. What you have to ask yourself is - would you have preferred to keep him and not sign Puscas and/or Joao?

Thank the lord he has gone. The fan boys who thought he was the next Messi can finally shut up.

Novakovich was done here the moment he went on loan last summer - my only surprise is that a top flight Dutch club weren't prepared to fork out the cash for him - as if a 2nd division Italian side can afford him it us unlikely to have been more than a million or so.

I have literally no idea how good he actually is or will be - he scored some goals in the Netherlands but I do not know what is all round play is actually like as I don't watch Dutch football - however, it seems that in his time here 3 managers decided he would not be the right option for the way we play and you only need to look at the lack of minutes with the "firsts" over the summer, when fit, to see that he really wasn't seen as a viable option for us in Gomes style.

So overall, best deal for all. I don't get the, he hasn't had a chance view, he has - he wasn't viewed as good enough/right for us by multiple managers who will know all about him both in the u23s and loans - so he now gets the chance to show he can score goals and settle at a decent level. Good luck to him.

Dennis the Butler Bad decision imo. Proven goalscorer, albeit in the Dutch League, with more experience and senior goals than Loader but never given a chance.




So was this guy.

So you wanted him to be playing ahead of Puscas, Joao and Meite? Have a day off.

More club goals than Puscas career-to-date whilst playing at an equal or higher level

The Dutch 2nd division is a higher level than Serie B? Ok......

To be honest I would have though he'd be a decent squad player to keep around. Especially if we continue to play 2 up top.

I imagine not getting Gmac or Gunts off the books meant someone else had to go.
