We've been below average and he's still managed to shine. I don't get the Nuhiu comparison at all if I'm honest.

 

The most common criticism you will read of AR is that he doesn't get a foot in or avoids a tackle, whichever way you want to put it. To me, that's a bit of a red herring because the downside is easily outweighed by the number of appearances he has made and his lack of injury problems.

 

The Nuhiu comparison? Just making a point that in their own way they are players who have divided opinion amongst the fan base. Reach has had his good days for us, so has Nuhiu.

 

Some fans will think we won’t miss Reach. Others will think we’re better off without Nuhiu. I think once they’re no longer an option for whoever is in charge, you then find out the real answer?

Absolutely, sign someone for 5m, sell for 15+ reinvest it in 2 or 3 players and keep improving the squad in a sustainable manner.

 

Painful in the short term. But, if you can consistently pull this off you are ultimately on a winner.

I mean, I don't believe Reach is anywhere near as divisive as Nuhui. But, I accept a few just don't get it. AR will be sorely missed IMO but I always say nobody is irreplaceable and at the right price a club like ours should sell. That has to be our model, buy smart, sell smart and repeat.

I agree to a large extent. Do you think we’ll buy and sell smartly under Bruce?

I think he is potentially a great fit for us and I'm optimistic about his appointment. However, I don't think that will be his brief.

 

Clubs like ours should be looking at the model of RB Leipzig, RB Salzburg, FC Copenhagen etc, etc. We need a sustainable model that can still deliver a good chance of promotion and attractive football.

Yes, if Reach were to leave, Burke would have been the perfect replacement. My take on Reach is, he is undoubtably one of our better players, hence the interest from top flight clubs. His non stop running, and goals from all areas, makes him a valuable member of the squad, and losing him would surely weaken us However, I’m not sure that he was ever a perfect fit for us, or we haven’t found the right position for him. I’d say, his current role is the best of the many he’s played for us, but you still get the feeling that he could influence the game more than he does. Maybe the rest of the midfield set up doesn’t suit him, I don’t know 

Hopefully, if he leaves for a fee that will go a long way to sorting out our financial issues, we can look for a player that complements our current set up better

Would we get promoted with that team with a 15 point deduction do you reckon?

 

What for, playing our already registered players?

No, for not dealing with the FFP issue or has that issue magically vanished?
