Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Coniah is aiming high next season. https://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/reading-fc-youngster-coniah-boyce-16328449 I think that’s a reasonable aim for him tbh. If we get Martinez (and I actually think there’s a decent chance) then we will, by all accounts, be in pretty good hea...

Re: The Playoffs 2018/19 edition

Charlton. Last minute winner in injury time. Poor old Sunderland. Six successive Wembley trips now ending in defeat and what a miserable way for it to end as well. Like Reading they won on their first visit and since then it’s been a graveyard. Let’s hope Reading don’t get to match that run. Bit di...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Really don’t think selling for a low fee plus add ons makes sense. Clubs know he has huge potential and we need to make sure we maximise our take. Good young English players are very valuable so as long as there’s is competition we will be strongly placed to get a good price. Low initial price and ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

de Ligt to Man Utd de Gea to PSG you heard it here first! pulling the strings in cyberspace! Tbf de ligt is an old school united player. Exactly the type of signing you’d associate with them back in the day. Hope he goes no where near that basket case of a club. Now De Ligt and Van Dijk at Liverpoo...

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

Would be excellent to have him back, and by all accounts enjoyed his time here so if it was his choice who he went to I think we've got a great chance.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Can’t be much longer before we hear who is replacing Carabao as the shirt sponsor. God Ive never hated a logo so much in my life as Carabao. Just degraded the shirt and looked shit on our kit. Interesting* that Beijing Renhe's shirt sponsors are Carabao and so assuming they still have a deal and a ...

I for one would be absolutely delighted to have Ovie back. He improved considerably during his time here and offers something different. Ejaria > Swift. Fight me x

Re: Financial Fair Play

Helpful breakdown of the clubs accounts by Swiss Ramble here including comparisons to other clubs. Well worth a read https://twitter.com/SwissRamble/status/1131468493109514241 Some interesting things in there. A near 300% increase in wages-turnover ratio from ~70% to ~197% it inexcusable. And why e...

Ascotexgunner Loader 9 million? Did I miss something?


Clearly this season and the last 10 years of football inflation. :P

When you look at some of the figures being brandished for second division players then 9 million is a pretty reasonable figure imho.

Little bit about our dear old Drenthe in FFT. Small mention of us in the middle. Met Anton randomly which is why he came here and we paid half his wages when loaned out to Wednedsay.
