We had no plan B last season so getting the players in to change formation ect is a good thing 

Maximising the 5 subs new rule.... plenty of options to change a game

 

Hopefully we will be a front foot attacking team from the first game

 

TBF last year Moore was trying to rebalance the squad, so this approach is the next stage

Talking of which...

 

I only watched half,but he seems an out and out striker, a poacher........... no screamers, no mazy dribbling runs, no out pacing defence on a long ball. Not quite what i expected

Hopefully a great signing, im excited

We once had 7 strikers. lol


Yeah and even then we still had too many of them who were too similar, didn’t truly know which of them to start, and still lacked options.

 

Assuming Wilks signs, I think that gives us 4 players who each have something a bit different. I think you can see obvious combinations and lineups that make sense.

It was just an observation on that line up mate, don’t get your knickers in a twist 😉 It’s not like he plays high up the pitch anyway & modern full backs attack.

It was just a comment, it seems you are the one getting your knickers in a twist

 

He is a disaster at full back, can't defend to save his life, just watch the penalty he gave away early in the season for pulling someone back inside the area.


Just a bloke, who used up all his luck in one go when he met his wife.

worth a shot, decent age, looks like another tall strong player suitable for this division.

Doesn't look the most mobile and not sure if he knows he's got a right foot 🤣 Seems more in the mould of Smith. Decent option to throw on to try something different.

If Joao ends up going somewhere for a fee, our cut should cover at least £200k so sounds like a cracking deal to me

What’s the deal with Joao? If it’s a sell on clause then surely it will be a % of the profits not the fee. Given they paid about £5m plus add ons I doubt they’ll be making a profit on him if he moves

Depends on the clause in the contract. One or two on here supposedly ITK said it was a % of any fee Reading receive.

Yep was reported fairly recently, and quite definitively, that it was on the gross fee. Can't quite remember where, might have been the Star.

Looks like 20% of the fee, not the profit

A lot of the videos show goals but this when he left Doncaster shows more of the potential for a wider forward if needed. He was really impressive at Doncaster not sure if DM was there then?

Good player 

Who loves to play football

Been through a big tragedy in such a young life 

Brilliant signing 

Him and smith upfront could be lethal in this division

On the thoroughly researched database that is Wikipedia it does say that he started out a central striker and was converted into a wide forward.
