Is it the same source that said Reading bid £9m for him only for the Reading end to say it's not true.

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

I go watch Dulwich quite often. He's on fire, but nowhere near as good as Daniel Carr was. You may recall we released Carr, he went to Dulwich Hamlet then was one you guys lost your shit over when he was sold to Huddersfield (as one that got away). Carr didn't pull up any trees in the league, went b...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Perservering with the style is the way forward. Going to take time to build the squad to achieve it though. Much depends on bringing youngsters up through the ranks playing the Reading way. Not just academy, but players from lower leagues with potential. Well that's BT's vision. Stam's done a prett...

The holding club is separate, and the number of shares were increased which put £15m into the main company in January. Doubt it'll affect transfers.

I don't get it. If your system and style isn't working, why not change it? To me, it seems to me that he is determined to play the game his way, even if it is to the detriment of the team.
