Not so much of a gamble. Charlie, a proven quality footballer, has had a good pre-season, played games, put in the shop window and obviously satisfied Reading. All thanks to Tony. We are such a giving Club. This will bite us in the arse, this season.

Or he will end up being out injured on big wages.

JRC is the biggest mover this summer. He’s the one who has really put himself in the 1st team picture with Buckley, Magloire and Butterworth. Grayson too but will probably go back on loan

Just goes to prove what a good job the academy is doing, costs 3 mil a year, and to keep their cat 1 status after relegation to league 1 was unbelievable,we all know how unpredictable our owners can be, but fair play to them to keep investing and looks like it’s paying off.

Excited to watch these youngsters coming through and hopefully getting game time this season, some real talent amongst them.

Sounds like we gave the guy somewhere to get fit. We liked some of what we saw and maybe made him an offer. He took a bigger offer but nothing is lost. In fact it creates a positive perception around the club and football. 

When I posted that I’d prefer us to promote Buckley rather than sign Adam it got a lot of likes on here. So why are we now criticising what essentially was a good thing that the club did? They’re damned if they do and damned if they don’t. 

Because lots of people on here would rather see a young lad get a chance, me included, so you got lots of likes.

Some obviously like Adam and would like to have seen him sign. So they are disappointed.

Game of opinions, fancy that!

I'm definitely in the camp that had hopes of Adam signing. It would have been a gamble considering that he is pushing on, but he has talent to spare. Good vision, cracking shot, and a mean streak. Could have been good for us. But here we are.

For me Adam was too much of a gamble on anything other than a basic salary with appearance top up, I simply cannot accept him taking up places ahead of young up and coming players. This clubs future revenue stream looks to be producing, building then selling young players.

I’m loathed to criticise Mowbray for this summers transfer window without knowing any facts, did we simply get gazumped for players or not having enough players scoped.

I went to an evening with Gary Bowyer when he was Blackpool manager (long story!) but he said something very interesting which I think could apply here. Bowyer said he could do lots of work finding a player and negotiating with his club only for the players agent to ring around other clubs saying “player X is available for Y what would you be willing to offer him” then losing the player. We may well have been victims of this a few times at the 11th hour, we will never know.

I'd be amazed if any of them are in the match day squad, save for league cup games before Christmas.

It'll be Tony's "tried and tested" lieutenants as always until he gets made to change it due to players being unavailable etc.

The word is disgusting, that’s why it is in context when referring to him.

Strong feelings require strong vocabulary.

 

 

there really needs to be a filter on here if you can’t call Steve Bloody Kean a “disgusting word”

Think you need to simmer down pal. You can insult that man all you want, but use of that word on here won’t fly.

Probably because different posters have different opinions, is my guess.

Well,if I'm guilty of it point it out. You've been very patronising towards me 2 posts in a row so, let's both agree its unnecessary and not do it.

How did you manage in every previous Summer window?

Cheap shot. Not like you. If you're really interested, churn through years of past transfer windows.

Glad we didn’t sign Adam we have enough midfielders.

Did his best to get a final paycheck. Will be like Danny Murphy.

The deal to sign Adam must have been sorted before the weekend because he was at Hale Barns carnival on Sunday with his family

If signing Adam would have stunted the progression of Buckley and Travis. I'm all for him going Reading

Rankin Costello at fullback is very exciting, had all the right attributes  to go long as Travis. Butterworth is also a pacy winger in Armstrong /Chapman mould. Think Magloire should go out on loan along with Buckley, Platt and Grayson to get more experience.

An opportunity always look bigger going away from you than when it is coming towards you...

 

That's the sentiment on here in my view...

Buckley going a year on season long loan to a club like Sunderland or Portsmouth next season playing regularly and we could have a gem next year and for years to come.

Probably the best thing for him.

As it stands, Mowbray has Evans, Johnson, Travis, Smallwood, Downing, Davenport and probably Bennett ahead of giving him a start at CM.

As it stands we only have two fit centre backs if you exclude the three above. Williams is injured and hasn't hardly had any pre season and the young lad from City hasn't signed yet. If Williams doesn't get back soon (I don't know the severity of his injury) it could be that two of Magloire, Platt and Grayson will miss the loan deadline as they could be required here. That's also assuming we don't bring another centre back in too.

Think Leutwiler has been good since he got hos chance end of season. As an backup in Champ I think hes good enough. He is an canadian international keeper so has experience but need games. Think Walton is a good signing if we could finalise it.

It doesn't offend me in the slightest, so I wouldn't feel the need to question your character. If you read back your initial response to me though, I hope you can see my point re the accusation of  hypocrisy.  Thanks for the sensible reply though - you are a gentleman.
