Re: 20/21 squad and summer transfer business

Wonder if Bowen likes Tennai Watson and has him in mind again as a 2nd or 3rd choice RB? I was also thinking about Smith and wonder whether Holmes will come back more accustomed to adult football? Personally, probably not for both.

Re: BFTG Wednesday (A)

A better question is why we didn’t look or do better against a limited Hull team, rather than WBA. Too many teams come to the Madejski and sit 10 men behind the ball and defend deep. And that was the case with Hull. We aren’t good enough to break teams down that do this, and haven’t been for a numb...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

I think sending 2 players of the same position to the same club at the same time is often rare too? If they can both start they could develop well. Saw Odimayo play centre midfield for U23s against WBA. Looked pretty tidy there so may be a bit mor ever satire than just playing at centre back. I did...

Re: BFTG Hull.

Personally I’d have brought on Rino (as McCleary wasn’t on the bench) and got him to play a more right sided midfield role with Swift coming back into the centre and Ejaria playing off Meite. With the Obita sub I can see the sense of a like for like switch, but agin I’d have been tempted to bring Ri...

Re: BFTG Hull.

Lot of criticism here for Swift, but throughout the second half he played right midfield. Just not his position and poor tactical switch from Bowen. We looked better when we went to 4 at the back, for a bit, but always felt threatened down our right wher Swift isn’t natural and Araruna is clearly no...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Particularly for Howe. A decent spell there should set him up to cement a place in the squad next season. Yes, will definitely be keeping an eye on that one and hope he does a bit better than some other recent loans to Div1 I rate the lad, reckon he has a future here. Every time I’ve watched him he...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Surprised about Nolan. Saw him the other night against WBA and was quite impressed with him. And it isn’t even a loan deal.

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Many were calling for CBC to be called up for the FA Cup game. Based on the highlights only, certainly looks too soon. Isn't he 17? Young for an outfield player, let alone GK. You need to be battle hardened. I don't expect to see him in a first team shirt for at least 2 years. Not sure anyone calle...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Disappointing result having been 2 up at HT. some decent finishes from WBA but generally they shouldn’t have had the opportunities. Key player assessments Thought Odimayo looked decent. Played a box to box midfield type role with East sitting deeper as the playmaker. Nolan looks a good talent with t...

2-4 shot from edge of the box that squirms under CBC. He’ll be disappointed with that

2-3 poor kick from CBC put the team under pressure and got punished.

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

Well I thought that was alright. Quite entertaining. 4 goals, missed penalty. Felt we were very comfortable until they scored against the run of play. If we’d scored early, then I think we might have scored 3 or 4. But we didn’t. Howe was decent enough but tired. Burley was OK on his senior debut fo...
