Re: Loans,loans and more loans

I don't think that's incompatible with what I wrote. Having a list of targets is a country mile form having a seven-figure transfer deal lined up. You couldn't arrange the latter without good evidence you could follow through. Isnt that exactly what we did with the likes of campbell-ryce or by the ...

Re: "One More Player"

When was the last time RFC made a big signing that everyone (or most everyone) thought was a great signing? That's an honest question b/c I cannot recollect one in the past 5 years. But I would have to admit that these loans and "signings" sound more like the dealings of a league 1 (or ML...

Re: Zurab

I'd be surprised if there was anyone at the training ground today, given that half the team have been called up for internationals. :roll: Think Mcdermott said after the Leicester game they would be in for training today They dont just stop everything because a few of the lads are off on internatio...

He does do it quite often though, thats the problem He didnt seem so apolgetic and humble on the radio after either. Saying how it wasnt so much his fault as just an accident and he thought it was a good ball right onto Kebes feet. Last time he cocked up he blamed everyone infront of for the 3 soft ...

Re: Mcd says we haven't got any cash....

That last para still comes down to mismanagement from the so called well run club though doesnt it We got relegated when we shouldnt have done, and as flloyd said since then we have ended up having to lose all the gems of that squad, either because of the money situation or because we were no longer...

Re: We love you Feds!

Wouldnt go as far as saying they were camera saves, they were decent enough but that is what a keeper is there for, to pull off saves He tried to kick the ball through a crowd of players on the edge of his box when he had time and space to throw or kick it a bit quicker Whats the point in pulling of...

Re: Mcd says we haven't got any cash....

Sad, but pretty much true. But I think the best chance will be had by those clubs with a prospering academy. It certainly makes economic sense to do it that way. Whether a club of our size can ever produce enough quality talent to have a largely home-grown Premier League squad is very debatable but...

Re: Back from the game - S****horpe.

We should really be playing 4-4-2 at home. If we had Long/Church or Long/Rasiak up front I'm sure we can attack better. Maybe use 4-5-1 against strong opposition, but against Scunthorpe, I'd like to see us control the game. Hows that midfield gunna work though Well, I'd play Sig as an attacking pla...

Re: Academy goes from strength to strength

Looks like ex-academy player Ryan Crockford might be getting a chance with Oxford

Its raised a few eyebrows up that way with his history, but he could be another league player to come out of the club

Re: Jamie Ashdown

Hamer has played more games than Ashdown. Ashdown's appearances are rather pathetic - he's been a pro for over a decade and han't made close to 100 appearances yet. he's got a lot of experience of sitting around and not playing competitive games. Now you could argue he's in a similar position to Ma...

From what i remember people posting on here he hasnt really taken much of his loans back and so yes pretty sure he is still owed 20 odd million.

Re: Mr Mad's financial travails

And what about the 20 odd million we still owe SJM???? :? If he was to get into serious trouble then he might need to claw a chunk of that back to support his other interests I dont think it would happen, but to say the club isnt affected by his other businesses hitting tough times is a probably a b...
