Re: The generic transfer thread

and Now Mendy signs for City for £49.2m. Crazy money I liked Monaco's reasoning behind the fee. Mendy is better than Walker so they'll have to pay more than £40m. That is some spending by City. They'll HAVE to win something this year, otherwise Pep could be out on his ear....big pressure. Pep to be...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Uh oh - Outrage FURIOUS Reading FC fans are demanding refunds after forking out nearly £50 for a wonky football kit this weekend. Printers bungled some of the new replica Royals shirts meaning the logo looks out of place. Instead of being centred, some of the club's headline sponsor's logos have be...

Great to see you keeping up your impressive level of support from last year LWJ.

Will you be wearing a Ralph Lauren cap and Stone Island jacket for this one?

Re: Safe standing progress

I'd say Deepdale is one of the steepest I've been to in recent times. And I stood for the full 90 minutes on my last visit.

Re: CONFIMRED - Vito Mannone

If someone 2 years ago had offered Al Habsi or Mannone, I'd have taken Mannone. I still see this as us improving and therefore I'm happy.

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Dear me :lol: Ask any fan of his last three clubs and they'll tell you about his ego and piss poor attitude. He is pretty much hated. I know a Brighton fan and he was named their worst loan signing of all time by most. Lazy If that wasn't enough, his goal record is absolutely appalling and he's abo...

So what's wrong with him according to Sunderland's fans then?

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

No. Especially from a Team in the same league at the lower end and that person was not a stand out player. Is the correct answer. If anyone else thinks otherwise then you really have to question your ambition for the club Am sure people would have the said the same about Yann before last season. Le...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

We just released half a dozen of our youngsters 2 premiership loan plays last season and Premiership players the season before. What striker have we had, that is decent enough, and has remained uninjured long enough to get a good run in the side, do you think we should have played, that wasn't bein...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Nah just waste our money paying premiership wages to the loan players we have had these last couple of seasons. maybe giving Mendes and others more game time/experience may have avoided this knee jerk reaction to us buying rather then playing our "own" . We just released half a dozen of o...

Re: QPR Away

OUT - I refuse to pay those disgusting prices (Actually I will be mid-flight coming back from Venice... otherwise I would have gone) Is £33 actually that bad for a London game? I mean, many people spend about £70 to go and watch a gig at the o2 these days. If anyone is doing that then they need the...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Cracking post murinho. You'd think some of these Reading fans had only started supporting us this year . All of our successful teams have been built on what you describe - a team greater than the sum of its parts. Even last year was an example of that. It's why I've said quite a bit on here recentl...

With Yann + Jon Dadi, think we have enough in the target man department.

Think we need to add some pace up top.

Good point.

What about David McGoldrick?
