    Question Last 3 games, who would you chuck in?

    3 games left... Who would you give a go in the 1st team? Obvious one is Ted Smith, and maybe Jack Bridge ? Not really seen the u21 team or other fringe / youth prospects, what do you lot think then? what about Kyprianou or Matsuzaka?
  5. Latest Rumours Dan Bentley

    Anyone else here in agreement that DB should sign another contract, but we just sell him to QPR straight after? You'd think for a bloke who came through the youth system and has been with us for years, he'd want to leave us with the best send off he can? Either way he'll leave - it'd just be...

    The Youth system and compensation thread

    I thought it might be interesting to have a thread to keep track of the former youth products stolen away from us, for whom we are eligible to receive compensation for based on their future success. Can someone (ESB?) remind us of the criteria and how this system works?

    Smith and Smith out injured

    Chris Phillips says Ted and Paul have both picked up injuries and will both be out for a couple of weeks. Ted's is a thigh injury and Paul's problem is his back (and his ability to catch a football, but that one is long term). Looks like youth keeper Josh Bexon will be on the bench on...
