  1. I think even £10k a week at start of season would have kept him. We'd removed his competition for left back with Blackett and Obita leaving, freeing up well over £10K i'd imagine. They should have put him on a 2 year deal, £10k a week with an extension if he plays x amount of games to 3 years. Then he's ours till summer of 2023.

    They seem too keen to pay bigger name players £20k a week on a long contract, yet won't keep prospects on £2/3K a week for more than 1 year it would seem. 

    Wonder what our team would be like if we'd put 18/19 year olds on 4 year deals. The likes of Jules, Fosu, Stacy, etc might have still been with us and even ikpeazu.

    Thanks for the information, disappointing on all fronts but good luck to him. Also apologies, it would now be understandable why it was put in 'early' if you knew this was done but just being kept quiet.  Cheers.

    Here you go, from Sky Sports.

    Not disappointing for him, Why would he want to stay at Reading when he can go to Bayern. Wages look like around £30/35k per week (he told Reading they needed to offer £35K a week for him to consider staying, and hence his in and out of 1st team over the past few weeks) Shame our board are not ensuring young players have at least 2 years left on contracts. esp when they are only on a couple of grand a week.

    Sorry to interrupt this engaging chat, but just an update on this Omar Richards story. Looking more likely to happen but still not officially confirmed so should not be in there on 21.3. One to keep an eye on for the imminent update though. If announced by then the future transfer is one to keep in - if not, it should really come out unless the Reading researcher is aware of something factual (which may be the case).


    Cheers. As you were ;)

    unless the Reading researcher is aware of something factual (which may be the case). - That is correct.

    I'm assuming Cook is still classified as a young player at the start of the game, at age 23. But even if he isn't, Marcus Rashford is 8 months younger than Cook and has had his fixed PA lowered by 3 points from the November release to the winter update. 

    On that basis Cook's could also have been lowered. 

    It's a ridiculous PA seemingly still based on his 2017 U20 World Cup captaincy. 


    Many players peak later in their careers, for a midfielder that might be late 20's (Rashford would probably peak around 26/27 as his game is built on pace) , so if he's 23 he still could have 6/7 years to reach his set PA. a move to a bigger club, in the Prem at the end of this season,  a few seasons on a winning team in the prem and he could end up being an England regular, he could also stay with Bournemouth, get relegated and be in League one in 2 years time, like Rodwell. So is it possible he could still reach that PA  over the next 5-6 years, that's question I think you need to be asking. and then put forward your reason as to why he could/could not reach it.

    Lewis Cook still has the same ridiculously high fixed PA he's had for the last 3-4 years. 

    When I flagged this up in the November release I was advised by a researcher that new guidance was not to reduce a player's PA over their career, but I can point to numerous examples of those who have been decreased in this release, so that can't be the case. 

    So why not Cook? Given his PA is currently in line with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Jack Grealish, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, Weston Mckennie, Ruben Neves etc. There's no evidence he belongs in that company. 

    For older players, a players PA is set to their highest CA they achieved in their career, So it will show what he reached at his peak. It does not decrease with age. 

    For younger players it's their potential they could reach.

    So the PA of an aging player might be lowered if say the researcher set them at 150PA when they were younger and they never managed to play in the top flight or reach that level, and peaked at around CA130, their PA should be reduced to 130.
