Dismayed, but not surprised, by the moaning on here.

Most expected us to be dominated by Villa and would take a point before the match, that very scenario happens and people moan.

I'm used to Reading fans by now.

Re: Josh Sims - Confirmed?

We signed a player who had a great record as a goal scorer in this division on loan last season, and he was genuinely as bad a player as Inhave seen at the club in the last 5 year’s You complain we have no pace, movement or quality up front (which I disagree with) and we sign someone who apparently...

Re: Forest (A) match thread

It’s one thing Moore not starting but having O’Shea on the bench ahead of a player we value in excess of £10m is frankly ludicrous unless there are fitness issues.

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Get over it. Why would any player want to stay in this current Reading setup when we have zero ambition to reach the premier league? If there was any doubt before the transfer window about the clubs intentions, that's been put to bed with the huge lack of investment in our squad while the genuine p...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

As our best player, in my view, Moore deserved his POTS award. Furthermore, in the post Hammond era, in which we've spunked millions on those who have failed to deliver, if his successor has ever been quilty of barking up the right tree it was the one that led to signing Moore. It took forever but w...

Re: CONFIMRED - Adrian Popa

He did look massively unfit on one of the pre-season games, saying that it was Eastleigh game i think and all the players had done double sessions before that game and they all looked pretty haggard. Its a shame he had an injury as i think going away over pre-season might have been a chance for him...

Re: RUMOUR- John O’shea set to sign for Reading

I really don't get what the risk is? He wont be on top dollar at 37 years old and he is getting coaching experience so that is likely to be a bartering tool that reading use to get wages down further. Its a one year contract with no fee. and we get another experienced voice in the dressing room. An...

Re: Rumour - Vito Mannone

Non-plussed really. Decent keeper but makes too many mistakes. I wasn't Federici's biggest fan but I'd sooner have him back and he'd cost very little. Fcuk Up Fed, he of the amazing Wembley Whoopsie, over Mannone? I'd sooner lose a limb than have Skippy anywhere near this club again. Is he 3rd or 4...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

Surely the price is going to come down to whatever is in the release clause of his latest contract. Having said that, £3m is a laughable figure from those who clearly have no clue of his potential value or ability. He's 25, destined for the top flight and has every chance of establishing himself in ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Perhaps just surprisingly rational given how long he's been here :P

Totally agree the blame lies with Anton and his dad. If Samuelson hadn't performed his role someone else would have done more or less the same job.

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

£315 for a ST at Dover Athletic in the National League. Only £10 less than I wil pay I was at Dagenham & Redbridge a few months ago and I think the sign said £19 to stand on the terrace :| In comparison, despite losing the bird and forking out a record £450 to renew, this amounts to £19.57 per ...

Even if we let him go for free now on the basis his new club agreed to cover the remaining wages on his contract, I doubt we'd find any takers.

The chances of double d having insider contacts who know that Chris Gunter is going to the PL / Villa and that actually happening are about as credible as homeopathy.
