Re: Ex Players

Karl Sheppard, who was briefly at Reading, but never settled, has now retired from football at the age of 29. He was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis two years ago, and has struggled since then.

Re: Ex Players

More worryingly you don't seem to see how how you more closely you describe yourself with your outburst here. I dont hate Gunter. I thought he was a model professional and I think he was an incredible athlete. I think he was shit at closing down his winger though. Very shit at it. I'm also not obse...

Re: Ex Players

Oh I do but I was checking to make sure you weren't really suggesting that a single player can be the reason for an uptick in fortunes but not the reason for a downturn in fortunes. Because, you know, that would make you sound like an idiot. indeed - so the reverse - implying he had nothing to do w...

Re: Ex Players

Just incredible that the valid criticism that many of us leveled at Gunter for years, yet was dismissed by many, has been noticed within half a season by another fan base. you mean the section of the fanbase that would ignore the uptick in results since he joined Charlton, but blame him when the cl...

Re: Ex Players

Lots of Charlton fans complaining about Gunter now on twitter. They say he doesn't close down his man and have no idea why he keeps getting selected. Uncanny. Well, well, well what a surprise. Next stop Newport or Wrexham? Just incredible that the valid criticism that many of us leveled at Gunter f...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

I think it is no difference this window or the next he leaves as we will get compensation for youth training which will be approx. Million anyway. I think 2 million and take it and buy someone else from the lower leagues. Tie down McIntyre and Olise and move on. You get no compensation if a player ...

Re: Injury watch 2020/21

who would you add Vic (other than a pacey winger)? I don't see a lot of gaps tbh. Obvs cover for any more injures or ones that dont heal up by end of jan We need a second Joao. Because we're more likely* to get one of those than we are to change our formation to suit our other forwards when Joao is...

Re: BFTC - Huddersfield

HRK was a fairly ordinary player (useful option from the sub’s bench) who nonetheless ground out a good career for himself. I don’t believe all this “arrogance” stuff. People seem to like to believe that footballers (particularly black footballers) are arrogant but a player of such mundanity managi...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Pretty sure this is the case. Money has to all come through the door on day 1, with no contingent payments or clever structuring. If it is then wouldn't be too unhappy. Rather that than a headline 15m, where we get 3m up front and the rest over time or based on apps etc. Presumably the figure is a ...

Re: Next 6 games?

I'd be delighted with 5-6 points from the next 6 games tbh, given our current injury list. We'd be in reasonably good shape then for another push in January. I hope though that in the inevitable losses, we keep the goal count down. Goal difference could be crucial if the table is as tight at the en...

Re: Rival Watch

Hate to say it but I think we’ll be bringing up that Oliver Langford sh*tshow come May. We may well do but if we miss out by a point or two then, so far, the 2nd half horror show at Bournemouth or the failure to beat 10 man Brumby including missing a pen would be just as culpable. Agree, unless you...

Re: Rival Watch

Both Gunter and GMac needed a fresh start. Good to see them both playing well for their new clubs but they’d done their time here. Obita the same. And suspect we saved a fortune on wages Yep, agreed. I think McCleary would have like to have stayed, but the club withdrew the offer. I get the impress...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

None of this “what if we lose him for nothing” nonsense. You people would have sold Sidwell. A fit Richards makes a huge difference to the side. Keep him until the summer and gamble on promotion or if we miss out then he might not be so popular. Length of the contract is irrelevant frankly, the iss...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Was the Billingham deal 20m plus add ons? or just 20mil? Dunno. Not privy to the details. Does it matter? If we get 15 million plus add ons that could take the deal over 20 million will you claim that isnt 20 million so you were correct? Ok I will clarify - sub £15mil as the announced transfer. Add...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

I said I would take circa £10mil for him but I wouldn't rule out him going for up to £15mil. Certainly don't think we will get what Billingham went for, which is apparently now the base. I also did say I'd take £10mil plus sell on clauses. So, my question is, if the reported fee turns out to be 15 ...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

I don't aspire for him to be any level. I have said he is a very good player. I just think expecting much over £10 million for a 19 year old whose played 40 games in his whole career and saying he's going to be a super star is a bit too much. Jude Bellingham played 40 odd games for Birmingham last ...
