Re: Gourlay gone

Brilliant news for the club, hopefully Nani next. Don't see all the fuss on Twitter about getting Tevreden back - he played a key role in our biggest ever transfer window (summer 2017) and looked at the dross that was signed... Would get Hammond (DOF) & Howe (Chief Exec) back involved asap. This.

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I'm gonna say it, because it needs to be said: you are full of shit, Admittedly he wasn't a world beater but he would walk into this Reading team. And I'm gonna say it - no he would'nt. Football has moved on big time since his day, and he just wouldnt be technically profficient to get near the firs...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I'm gonna say it, because it needs to be said: He was a crap player (and I've spoken to some of his former teammates who would agree wholeheartedly with that statement). He is also a pretty crap manager who has achieved nothing. I don't want him anywhere near the club I'm gonna say it, because it n...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

Transfer policy for the past few years has been a hopeless shambles, and thats been addressed. Tevreden has been moved out.

Lets hope the new Guy has a better idea of whats required.

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

Ahh bless. All those poor employess at RFC , whove been given a kick up the ass by their Boss. We've been drifting on & off the field for 5 years. About time someone came in and gave the place a shake. Tevreden going is no loss. Disagree. It wasn't that long ago that the majority of fans, right...

Re: Madejski Out

From the year we moved to the Madejski to the year he sold up, we had only one bottom half finish in 15 seasons. The year we finished 18th in the Prem on goal difference. Just think though. What if he'd dug even deeper into his own pocket and invested more into the club. You know, ditched all his p...

Re: Do we really have billionaire owners?

We were semi regular prospect of possible promotion at the point of sale. Yet I hear a massive long term rebuilding plan is needed due to many years of neglect. Last season will have come as a massive shock to them imo- Pretty sure they were disappointed, but 'massively shocked'? They only took ove...

Re: Rumour - Cameron Jerome

I think Jerome would offer the back-up/competition to JDB, Would give us striking options of Baldock/McNulty & JDB/Jerome. Clement seems to favouring a front 2, so would make sense to me. I'm not going to turn down an experienced head but I guess I'd just prefer us to get a dynamic central midf...

That makes no sense


20.00 = 8pm
22.00 = 10pm

He obvs assumed that the time was @ 22.00 - when infact it was @ 20.00

well, thats the way I read it..

So the owners are the board. Yup correct. I'd suggest that Gourlay & Co all sit in there.
