Re: Summer Ins and Outs

I'm less concerned, the players we've lost, while we had high hopes for them have hardly set the world alight. Fosu and Stacey are probably the ones who got closest to the standards needed at the club but they did quite well at League Two level. The only one I have gotten a touch concerned about is ...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

Rob Dickie was getting solid reviews by all accounts, hopefully he can force his way into contention.

He's very good at picking up yellow cards in Football Manager in every version, I think I always hit the 5, 10 and 15 yellow card milestones with him.

Re: Now starts the re-build

Rumours that Williams is going to Huddersfield on a free. Cockup if true How so? He was signed during the Anton era so is no doubt one of our higher earners and perhaps the Thais had no intention of re-signing him on similar terms. Maybe that's changed under the Chinese ownership but at this point ...

Re: Reading on Sky

We should, at the very least, get fair coverage given the relevance of our fixtures to the rest of the division and, on that basis alone, our lack of TV exposure in recent times has been nothing short of disgraceful. And here we go again :| As the team that came closest to winning promotion that st...

Re: Tom Lawrence - 3.8m

So what we can take away from this is for £5m Reading can get Liam Moore and Tom Lawrence from Leicester whereas for £5m Leicester can get Matt Mills from Reading.

That isn't even factoring in that player prices have increased further since Leicester bought Matt Mills from us.

Re: Reading on Sky

Did anyone get the final figures for the amount of times each team was on TV last season? I remember, I believe it was around Christmas, someone produced a table and I believe we were joint last alongside Barnsley and Rotherham. It does feel like we could well have been the least televised top 6 sid...

I guess that also means we will have played Fulham for two consecutive home fixtures, that surely doesn't happen very often.

For the team that beat us in the play-off final to now take one of our better players for nothing is just rubbing salt into the wounds.

Re: CONFIMRED - Tariqe Fosu to Chalrton

Remember that Kwesi Appiah looked great against Derby that day too, now he's at AFC Wimbledon. Is it possible Derby were just shite in that game? They had been in quite indifferent form for a while at that point.

Re: Rumour - Frederico Venâncio

Stam is looking to go 6 at the back plus the keeper next season apparently. Says it will provide the firm base on which to make Reading more dangerous going forward. I could believe that actually if he considers defensive midfielders as part of that. He said when he joined he was a bigger fan of 4-...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

I think they would have done to be honest. 10m seems to be about the going rate for anyone nowadays in the Prem. Mooy is a good player, but been far from impressed by some of the other players they are supposedly interested in The price of £10m obviously factors in his potential but with many of th...
