Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Well Michael’s saying the right things and basically I don’t think he’ll go be going anywhere this month other than for a weekend in Preston. https://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/reading-michael-olise-transfer-latest-19634521 Also, if there is no bid this month from the host of...

Re: Hard to see any progress for the forseeable future

Always good to LOL @ Schards Enjoy the fact we eventually had his sea change then became shit for not far off a decade. But he was not at all alone in his view. I remember people raging about our lack of ambition and spending when we sold the likes of Kitson, Sonko, Doyle, Hunt, Sigurdsson etc. Now...

Re: Hard to see any progress for the forseeable future

The false hope of the AZ takeover seems a long time ago.

Re: Brentford game postponed

:( :( More time for team to recover I guess. Moore will be back soon. The policy seems inconsistent. We've seen weakened teams fielded, 3 points awarded for no shows in L1 & L2, and postponements. If the shoe was on the other foot, we'd say this is a fair outcome. But I'd have wanted a crack at...

Re: Rumour - Cohen Bramall

Hound Was very quick if I remember

Sounds a reasonable option - quite a big step up though

Are Colchester L1 or L2? Agree L2 to Championship is a big step, especially if he's seen as a replacement for Richards i.e. first choice next season.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

I'm surprised Puscas wasn't involved but happy to assume the club are in a better position to assess his fitness and capability better than HNA? Overall not too disappointed. Good 2nd half, we deserved a goal but it wasn't to be. Good experience for the youngsters; lots of future first teamers I'd s...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

How's Tshibola doing these days? Obviously Munich is bigger than Villa, but the risks of moving too soon are clear and have countless examples. But I trust Munich to have a good plan for his development. I'm clutching at straws really. It's a great move for him.

Re: January window

I was musing to myself yesterday evening; our first team squad now is largely an example of excellent recruitment, so if we keep that going this window we'll hopefully be in a position next year to kick on and improve further.

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

It's still disappointing; not sure how much responsibility we have. We were skint in the summer, and couldn't even agree terms with Osho when his alternative was uncertainty and possible unemployment. Could we have made a deal good enough to Richards for him to accept? Could we have seen it coming e...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Will admit to not watching last night's match and only following reports, but sounds like United are still a little way off consistently challenging for trophies. In many senses though, Solksjaer has made good progress in 2 years. Is he that far off what Klopp was achieving after 2 years at Liverpoo...

Re: January window

Some Derby County pundit has suggested their new owners should go all out to sign Joao in January, because they're such a big club he'll be happy to leave a promotion push for a relegation battle. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Pedro Mendes

If we've been tracking him for a long time and have confidence in his ability, we shouldn't let a difficult 6 months put us off as it happens to the best of players. But agree loan is better than permanent at this stage.

Re: Rival Watch

Hound Looked horrible

Always difficult to say how much intent but no choice other than a sending off there

And he’s a decent player - they’ll miss him

3 match ban for straight red? Does that mean he doesn't play against us?

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Either way, if he is happy here, playing well and improving as a player there is every incentive to stay when compared with sitting on the bench at the likes...
