Re: Reading FC ltd company announcement

Interesting (and probably quite promising) that they've chosen to pump funds in this way rather than a loan. Your reading is different to mine. Isn't this more to do with diluting other shareholders? Well according to the filing they've paid 52.5p per share for over 30m shares, so that's a very exp...

Re: Reading FC ltd company announcement

All it'll be is the club issuing new shares to the current owners, who will pay a certain amount of money for these shares, in order to raise some cash. Interesting (and probably quite promising) that they've chosen to pump funds in this way rather than a loan.

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

The vast majority of modern day transfers have all sorts of ridiculous clauses in them.

Don't take some grossed up £7.5m figure as 'reported' by SSN as the amount we will actually be paying Fulham this summer.

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

Have to say I've always been a big fan of Aluko, clever movement, quick, skillful - just the kind of player every football fan loves to watch. Judging him on goals scored is very harsh as he was stuck on the wing for most of last season. £7.5m is a lot of money - but I get the feeling plenty of peop...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by away goal search

Very professional away performance. On top throughout and maybe could have scored a couple more.

Bodvarsson, Barrow, and Bacuna all excellent. This apparent approach of looking for undervalued players with PL/Championship experience is paying off quite nicely.

Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

Swansea and Leeds fans couldn't wait to tell us how shit Barrow was, but everything we've seen from him has been very positive so far, therefore I'm not going to place too much reliance on the Villa fans' opinions. He's always looked a very tidy player to me. Not outstanding in any particular area, ...

Re: BFTG Gillingham

Having watched Clement at QPR it comes as no surprise to me that he does a better job in the middle.

Seems to be very good technically, plenty of nice touches and finds his man well, but doesn't have the pace or trickery to make an impact out wide.

Will make a good no. 10 one day I reckon.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queen's Park Rangers (a) not sponsored by opening day depression

Positives: JDB and Barrow look useful.

Negatives: Everything else.

Scary just how far off the pace we were.

Re: Rumour - Modou Barrow

Interesting - felt we needed to add some pace to the team so nice to see that being addressed. Sketchy record, but there's obviously some potential and quality in there. If Jaap can work his magic then we'll have ourselves a bargain. If he can't then at least it's a relatively 'cheap' gamble that ha...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

The transfer fees shouldn't make too much of an impact as this will just sit on the balance sheet and be amortised over the life of the contact. E.G. we sign Darlow for £5m on a 5 year contract, we'll be incurring a 'cost' for accounting purposes of only £1m (£5m over 5 years) per year. It's the wa...

Button was very good at Brentford for the previous 3 seasons before going to Fulham, is at a good age for a keeper, and has plenty of Championship experience. I don't understand the apparent universal outcry at this signing based on nothing but a few bad games for Fulham. It baffles me. To sign a r...

Won't hold my breath though.


The same Connor Ripley that has played a total of 2 games for Boro and is rated so highly by them that they're willing to ship him out so that they can spunk millions on Karl Darlow?

Right.

Re: RUMOUR - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Good character, plenty of experience, has the quality to make an impact.

Lots of Wolves fans sorry to see him go.

May not have the best goalscoring record but to judge a player on goalscoring record alone is simplistic in the extreme.

Happy with this.
