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

Not to mention the far post, crossbar or anywhere in his own half. :roll: Yes, it's a real mystery how Brian ever got us promoted with Feds in goal. It's a mystery to those who never gave McDermott the credit he deserved, not to mention those who think Federici made only one mistake in a Reading sh...

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 ...

Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

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. I hope Stam was responsible not only for this ludicrous signing but also the decision to send Popa out on on loan while Aluko was contributing the square ro...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

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. Is that more or less credible than Double Div knowing what homeopathy is? He knows very little but sadly it includes how to change h...

To state the blindingly obvious, it's all about results at this time of the season and good results are usually easier to come by against teams with nothing left to play for. Sunderland were in the last chance saloon; Only a win would have given them the slightest chance of survival and that's how t...
