Re: Rumour - Muhamed Besic

yeah liked Evans first season, really didnt after that

still seems to be doing well at Millwall, so good luck to him there. Derby spell sounded very similar to the one with us after stam season 1

Re: RUMOUR - Connor Wickham

is there even the slightest suggestion from anywhere that we have any interest in him?

Our former manager showed some interest 18 months ago - other than that?

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Forest and Stoke have unveiled their Macron kits this week. Both a bit meh. Interested to see what sponsor we end up with for the anniversary kits - bound to be something horrendous. Let’s face it, whoever pays highest will obviously get the deal. Club won’t be choosy :lol: Quite like them both tbh

Re: Free transfers watch

Dunno he’d certainly be worth a look. 16 goals last season and on a free. Similar to Joao from the write up style wise

Good age and had some experience at the level. Reckon he’d do ok

Re: Brentford (H) v Swansea (A) - Championship Play Off Final

The absolute shit Swansea turned up. They were awful. Deserved nothing.....and that really was a brainless red as well.....slipping or not.....utterly reckless. I find it incredible how brainless footballers are sometimes.....well most of the time. Yep they stunk the place out. As poor a final oppo...

Pretty lame effort from Swansea to be honest. Very comfortable for Brentford so far

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

A woeful 18 months or so recruitment which we're still paying for now. My gripe with FFP is that it didn't stop us paying too much for mediocrity, making huge losses and becoming dependent upon our owners. But now they appear to be learning lessons and improving, it stops us making rational, sensib...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Actually made a bit of a profit on Bacuna which certainly improves that signing a bit

But yes a pretty dreadful set of signings that

Clement’s weren’t great either - what was it - Yiadom - yes very good, Meyler, Baldock. Anyone else? Last two prob cost a pretty big whack as well

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

It’s fair to say our overall transfer dealings since 2017 have been pretty woeful. not sure on that really. They were clearly bloody awful (bar Yiadom) in the Gourlay era, but generally pretty strong since. Made a 7th place champ finish without spending a lot and picked up some good players along t...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

its difficult to know exactly what happened with Richards and his contract. There were certainly suggests a new contract wasnt discussed until it was basically too late - he was playing very well with 6 months or so left on it. But you never quite know. In retrospect we should have clearly tried to ...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

ah good luck to him. Clearly has talent and was exceptional at the start of the season However, we really only saw the best of him in that period, and whether he can consistently keep that level of performance and improve even more on it, I have my doubts. But will certainly keep an eye our for how ...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

frustrating but reality. We picked up Laurent on a freebie when he was probably worth a fair bit more to Shrewsbury, and talk of him being worth millions now.

Re: STs 2021/22

The people who seem to appreciate the ticket prices most are the casual fans/big club fans who love the fact you can pay £30 or so and bring their kids and watch a reasonable standard match whenever it’s convenient Guess we’re a bit spoilt. Anyway, renewed. Let’s just hope the ‘variants’ do wrecks a...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015

think we're seeing the real impact of the Gourlay overspend era now. it isnt so much the inability to sign players or possible points deductions as not being able to offer bright young talents proper contracts. Lost Richards, could well lose Olise on the cheap as he won't extend, TMc, Nevers etc Ye...

Re: Who do you WANT to win the play-offs?

Didn’t watch but stats suggest very much standard Swansea

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

What's more valuable to Reading? 40 games from Olise and another 15 to 20 goal contributions and leave for nothing next year, or £5m to £8m now? Former IMO. very difficult to make a guess on that isnt it? Injury, loss of form, head being turned knowing he is leaving (Richards didn't seem to be the ...
