    Agree. The striker choices have failed miserably thus far.

    Think if we had held firm on McNulty this wouldn’t have been an issue. Or if we had cast the net more widely for his replacement

    we are in league one, when a team get a goal scorer then they normally lose them to a higher league due to the fact of wages and fees, most teams in league one are in the same boat, everyone needs a 30 goal a season striker but then they get sold to a league above and dont make the grade.

    If mcnulty wanted to go which he did then how could we hold on to him.
    We would have just had a miserable player who wouldn’t have played or performed and would have sat out his last 12 months until we lost him for nothing

    Way easier said than done. Keeping an unhappy player at a club can have an adverse effect on a dressing room which in turn can be detrimental to team chemistry.

    Where Robins probably slipped up was again being stubborn and putting all of his eggs in one basket with Chaplin. I'm sure he had a long list of potential replacements but because Robins is Robins he saw what he wanted and refused to budge.

    I don't know what people fail to grasp.
    McNulty has a young family and the Reading move was a chance to either secure or go some way to securing their future. You can't deny a man that chance and if you did they'd have every right to be pissed off.

    Given the stick Burge gets on this board, no idea how we have the right to demand loyalty from anyone really.

    Are you saying Gillingham draw was fair result then? I was st game and genuinely felt a 3/4 - 1 win would have reflected better. There has also been plenty of games where we should have been 2/3 goals up and out of sight but have failed to score and result has turned against us.

    A disillusioned McNulty would've still fared better than Craplin
