Deniss Rakels

Is it me, or did I see some pictures of Rakels having a medical at Lech Poznan? Didn't realise he was leaving!

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

a) there really wasn't much to get behind, although for some periods the noise was ok. b) why are people so obsessed about day trippers? so some non hardcore fans come to the game, what is the big deal? I know a few parents brought their family / kids to their first big game... are they not allowed ...

Re: BFTG - Wembley

Why oh why, after 46 games, and 180 hard fought minutes in the play off - would Stam set his team up like that, seemingly playing for pens (alongside some abject performances on the pitch). Can't really fathom it. Well played Williams who was immense today, but on the day we didn't deserve it. Neith...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

This takeover stinks, I know for a fact Chris Samuelson is all over this, and the Premier League are clearly exerting pressure on the FL over these guys. Can you imagine what will happen if we go up, get TV money, get relegated, get parachute money... I wonder where that will go? Not only that but I...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

Isn't it about time the club said something publicly about the takeover situation. Can't believe people aren't threading up on this. Agreed on this. Of course it would be disappointing to miss out on the play offs but I have a feeling that the lack of any kind of direction from the boardroom, or re...

Re: Sheffield Wednesday (A) Predictions

Given that we have been beaten by most half decent / top half teams away from home, I'd be quite confident in predicting a 3-0 win for Sheff Weds. Probably falling apart after we've had plenty of possession and missed a few chances at 0-0. :D

Re: BFTS - Brighton (A)

Why are people talking about the playing style and 7 month in etc? Isn't this a review of the game? Went today and we were terrible, worst game I've seen in a while... we got taken apart by a decent, but not great team. Of course it's not the end of the world but it's really not encouraging that Sta...

Re: Stam Interview on BBCRB

I'm with Stam on this one. How can you not be concerned? How long is it taking to sign Ilori? I'm assuming potential Chinese owners having to put up some form of promise for the money pre-takeover. Why have they not taken over yet? Are they fit and proper (probably not given they've failed this test...

Re: Are The Youngsters Being Frozen Out?

Surely a better case in point is Dom Samuel. He is now back to fitness after a good run in pre-season, yet can't even make the bench... even with the shortage of options up top.

Re: Tshibola to leave?

Not happy if true, the kind of player we need to keep hold of. Young and hungry. I suppose he will be replaced with another cheapo deal from the Polish league?!

Re: Comments by Charles Watts on Twitter

If it is true, then surely it's not his place (as an official Reading FC reporter for GetReading) to announce this type of news. Id say its exactly his place to report what he has, how he has. I would agree it is his place had it been official news that was being announced, e.g. "During recent...

Re: Post Mortem

For someone who isn't a fan of loan signings, he sure does like to play them! Not sure why Brian isn't giving the youngsters a chance; the season is over. If we had got turned over so easily by Birmingham with some youth players involved, I wouldn't really have had a problem with that. These guys ha...

Re: Dellor moaning about Vydra again!!!

Dellor highlighting how poor Vydra has been is entirely justifable. In the context of our club's historical outlays for players, he has been one of our biggest signings. His performances should be scrutinised and possibly the signing itself. And as for no other options? I remember playing Cox up top...

But keep 8 points from a possible thirty in perspective also - that's bøllocks and everyone should be angry, not unemotional.


Terrible form and really not acceptable.

It's time to start getting fired up and wanting to drag ourselves out of this slump.

Re: Something wrong at the club?

As I understand it the Posh chairman said (on Twitter) that another club were in for Conor Washington, and then pulled out in favour of a Polish striker, on the orders of foreign owner. :roll: That could apply to most Championship clubs these days. He didn't respond when someone asked if it was Rea...

Re: Something wrong at the club?

If the owners are saying no to our managers intended signings and suggesting we get players from other leagues they recommend.

Re: Would you cash in on Blackman?

Played poorly today, and surely shows why he wouldn't be much of a loss. Does next to nothing all game, pops up with a late goal, goads the opposition bench and acts like the world has done him wrong. Maybe he's playing out of position, but why not just get your head down and work harder, instead of...
