Re: Season 2018/2019

No, my suspicion is that at least one of Mount or Wilson will do a ‘Lewis Baker’ and not really turn up. And not really sure how much Jozefzoon has achieved for Brentford - typical inconsistent winger But should make it an interesting game 100%. They're not that good. If they were then Rowett would...

Re: The Non - League thread

Cracking signing for them. They should be walking that league, can have no excuses for not winning it. Says a lot about the SPL though! Game's gone. Is there any FFP in National League and below? No I don't think so. I think the Conference is a good leage to experiment with salary/spending caps tbh...

Just log in to sky bet and find the game on there, they had a video feed for the Besiktas game, don't know if they will again today. My suspicion is they won't as for Besiktas it came up on the Reading club homepage as an upcoming fixture, for which it doesn't for the Kazan game. Kazan game will be...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

yep just seen the chronicle article. Very dubious about anything they say, but think 250k would be less than I'd want/expect for him. 500-750k would be nearer the mark Not sure about that. We're lucky to get anything for him. He adds no value . Next let's get shot of John Swift Assume that is a jok...

Re: Summer Transfers

I see the squad potential this season as an unknown quantity. It all went tits up very quickly last season and we never really got any momentum or clicked as team. This season if Clement gets it right, inherited a squad which tbh I thought would compete for play offs and he's added some grit, whils...

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

I watched the game on my SkyBet app last night. Great quality but only sparse commentary for the first 10 mins. Unfortunately I had stuff to do so only watched up until about 65mins. how is this done? Just log in to sky bet and find the game on there, they had a video feed for the Besiktas game, do...

Re: The Non - League thread

Because they have a far greater budget than anyone else in the division. They will probably have the strongest squad on paper come the start of the season. Evidence of that budget is that they’ve now signed a forward, Adam Rooney, from Aberdeen! Cracking signing for them. They should be walking tha...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

There will be a new kit, a small number of supporters were at the club a week or so ago doing some stuff for the launch. It should be released in the days leading up to the Palace game. Take it this was a South Stand only affair? Haha. This club is turning into a shambles. Soon it'll be members onl...

Re: George Evans

Seriously people THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN HIM TO BLOODY AUSTRIA IF TALKS ARE TAKING PLACE. All the people claiming a fee is agreed. Its nonsense :lol: Sunderland may have approached us; but for the figures being quoted we could loan him out for that amount :lol: Do you feel a bit stupid? Because y...

In fairness you apparently quite fancied Illori when you signed up here, so I'll be taking that optimism with a pinch of salt.

Re: Sam Baldock

a strike force of bod, baldock, mcnulty +1 yoof is streets ahead of where we were last year imo, and for that I'm pretty happy. adding an experienced half decent championship striker and a confident and hungry player who has done well in the league below us is good business. Well quite I find it qu...

Re: Sam Baldock

18 goals and 9 assists in 5878 minutes for anyone wondering which is a goal or assist every 218 minutes making him slightly better than Pogrebnyak at g/a every 225 minutes for us and much better than Blackman with g/a every 234 minutes.

Re: Summer Transfers

Exactly what I'm hearing, free transfers were agreed with a few clubs, but VDB wanted paid the difference in his Reading contract and the new contract. Reading also aren't prepared to subsidise too much of his wages for him to go on loan. Been told he will train with the u23s if he doesn't move bef...

Re: Sam Baldock

Really really average, really really underwhelming.

I don't blame Clement, I like him and I think he has a long job on his hands to fix the mess, but it's quite clear from these bang average/dross signings that it's going to take time. Thank god I don't have a season ticket for next year.

Re: George Evans

he'll be ooc at the end of the season anyway, so prob wouldn't hang around He is just the sort of player we need to trim from the squad (just not good enough) rather than hang onto in the forlorn hope he might come good.
