This Sam Smith deal seems to be dragging on and on.
As I understand it, Reading are (quite sensibly) waiting to confirm the signing of Sam Baldock before letting Sam Smith come to us.

Re: Predictions

8th, just missing out on the play-offs, finishing off a season of consolidation after last year's roller-coaster.

Re: Summer news

Best new kit in years. They've got the yellow shade just right. I like the collar and neck line, and it looks good with the lion on too. I'm not sure I agree. The 'three animals' look is a bit of a design car crash, in my view. But the main logo does look good. I really like the image of the puma l...

Re: New signings

Why mention 'players that may want to leave' then? It's an odd thing to talk about if the message isn't aimed at them, surely? Unless it's aimed at Tiger of course - pay for Carruthers or there might be others wanting away... That is odd, given that after signing his new contract recently, Eastwood...

Re: New signings

KR wants to sign Samir Carruthers http://www.oxfordmail.co.uk/sport/football/headlines/16238264.Oxford_United_boss_reveals_top_transfer_target/ Quite an unusual way to do transfer business, but I think the penultimate paragraph is the most telling: “I think players who may want to leave might look ...

Re: Retained list

Doesn't that still constitute a demotion for Chris Allen though? Gone from coaching the first team to coaching the kids. He came from the 'kids' as he was previously youth team coach. The status of the Under-23s is very different, seen (as I understand it) as a much more robust feeder system for th...

Re: Retained list

On a different line, KR has said he wants to shake up the coaching staff, but hopefully not see anyone leave. He has also said he wants to have someone specifically for the new Under-23s. So how about Chris Allen for that role? The absurdly low number of BME managers presumably reflects, at least i...

Re: Retained list

Eastwood is a good keeper - the best we've had for a good number of years. But then you'd expect that as we're playing at our highest level for a good number of years. I'm pleased he's signed on for longer. Having said that, I'm not surprised he wasn't snapped up by someone else. He had a real dip ...

Re: Rochdale

Did anybody else watch Mous' penalty and think 'Paul Moody'? Yup. Followed by "Pick that one out"! On RadOx after, KR said that he had taken penalties previously, and in pressure situations. Had I known that beforehand, I would not have been so concerned as he placed the ball...Judging by KRs body-...

Re: Going Down??

As a matter of interest, when was the last time we were involved in relegation worries this close to the end of the season and survived? It seems like quite a novel experience! Was it that Tranmere game in 92? Presumably the 2000/2001 season - where I think Cardiff collapsed in a heap and we just s...

Re: What constitutes acceptable?

One answer to the question in the thread title is 'not this'. This has been a quite extraordinary season, the details of which we shall never know - around the appointment and sacking of Clotet, the circumstances that led to Clotet's signings and how much he was or was not given for a transfer pot, ...

Re: Going Down??

I am going with being a tad frustrated about results elsewhere, rather than disappointed. We could never maintain the intensity of the opening few minutes for the whole game, but actually getting a goal in that period was massive. Eastwood also made some great saves - his form seemed to have dipped ...

Going Down??

0-0 at home to a team below us in the table, who had one and a half (IMHO) shouts for penalties, notwithstanding their inability to take the chances they created. Their No 29 ran rings around our identikit midfielders. Obika showed yet again his lack of footballing brain and inability to make pre-em...
