Re: Any more out the door?

Sorry, I haven't kept up with all this news. Does this mean that we have only Gunter, Mcleary and Baldock left of those Gomes wanted to clear out? Don't worry, the Chinese Transfer window opens in November (1st maybe), so we'll probably send them there and get Aluko back. Won't that please everybody...

Re: RIP Johnny Walker

I used to do a football pools collection round in Tilehurst and John's wife did a coupon every week (players were not allowed to do the pools) and I used to stop at their place (on Garston's Park-it was marriage second time round for John) for a chat, nearly always about football. We left Tilehurst...

Re: Rumour- Ovie Ejaria

Victor Meldrew An interesting one-I wonder if it is a case of wanting to be back down near London and Barry Hunter having a part to play.


It was Barry Hunter who was instrumental in Tiago Illori coming. Is he using his old club as a dumping ground for Anfield's misfits?

Re: New Manager

Meanwhile looks like compensation talks have hit a few glitches and Mr Gomes will not be announced before Monday. It's either that or he's been diverted and gone missing in the Gatwick aftermath. Debut game. Millwall away. What's the obsession with Gatwick? There are at least 4 airlines that fly fr...

Good, hope Evans stays get real, he is going.

Re: Player of the season.

Should have been No. 13. You the fans who have had to put up with such crap all season. Loads more effort than any of the overpaid prima donnas who were selected on that list.

Maybe next year the organiser can remember them..

Re: Stam Interview on BBCRB

I think maybe it's a Dutch thing. Koeman had digs at the people responsible for signings and the owner (at Everton) in his post match interview last weekend. This week he finally got one of the players he wanted. Maybe Jaap Stam has taken a leaf out of his book and tried to get things moving. The di...

Re: Rumour - Tiago Ilori

It does make you wonder whether Nick Hammond's method was the best after all, no news until the deal is done. Brian (Tevreden?), on the other hand likes everyone to know all the possibilities. Which pleases most of the fans, I guess. The trouble is, it then seems to take ages to finalise the deal, l...
