Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

Problem is if we start signing players on 3/4year deals on more money, and we get relegaed, there could be a real chance we could go into administration. Matchday attendances are down by 40+%, meaning revenue will be down, ticket prices will fall, fans will just pick up and leave and go watch Maide...

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

Just want to remind everyone of a player who was written off constantly when he played for us and also didn't have a first touch.

Re: I think I’m done - just can’t watch this lot anymore

He was limited, that's not the same as shit. I'd take him over most of our other recent midfielders in the defensive role. Got a lot of unnecessary hate. At least he put a shift in every game unlike some we still have. Give me a limited player trying his best over a better one playing well below hi...

Re: BFTG - Preston

Why do you say we look a team destined for relegation and then say Clement will get it right and we will stay up? Which is it? I said that at this moment we look like a side destined for the drop. Because of the indecision in our play and not a clear and perfected method of play that is efficient a...

Re: BFTG - Preston

Sorry but that is just not true! They are the second best team to have played in this division after Wolves. Is this some kind of joke I don't get? Like when we called Brighton the Barcelona of the south? Or do people genuinely think they were that good.. No, the Fulham team that got promoted was t...

Re: Reading FC Direct update - membership

Yep, it seems to have wiped all of the points from 2011 (when the points system came into the club).

Just checked the new RFCSupport twitter page and they have confirmed there is a technical error since switching the website to the new platform and all points will be restored shortly.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Lampard appointed at Derby. That's going to go really badly isn't it? :arrow: Just because you were a big name player, shouldn't mean you are able to waltz straight in to a managerial position at a club in the top two divisions without one iota of managerial experience. I hope it fails spectacularly.

Re: Rumour - Ruben Lameiras

being 'better than Aluko' is not really setting the bar very high Better is better, and right now we're looking at another season of Aluko turning into tackles in the centre circle. But yeah, you certainly couldn't limbo under that bar. Pfft, tell that to Hermes. https://78.media.tumblr.com/1a1df3b...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I read somewhere that Moore is on 30k a week. Assuming this is true then the remainder of his 3 year contract is worth £4.6m (contracted wages) + expenditure of 1m original purchase price + £3.1 wages paid over the first 2 contracted years. This would mean that the club would be valuing the player ...
