Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

I judge Redknapp on the basis that few fans of club's he has managed seem to speak highly of him . My impression is he is a wheeler dealer rather than a manager. Spends money he doesn't have then quits to let others sort out the mess. I also prefer a manager who coaches as well. Harry is well known...

Re: RUMOUR - Cyrus Christie

This is a good signing imo if the fee is low. Also it would allow Watson to go on loan and play regularly for a season Agree re Watson. Another season of playing hardly any games will do him no good. A loan to a good Div 1 side and 40 games under his belt and he will be the finished article. Being ...

Re: 2017/18 Championship Fixtures

What does Sunderland have to offer ? It's not even got the '30 minutes from London' side benefit and the laughingly named 'Stadium of Light' is just a Mad Stad with extra seats. Now Roker Park, that WAS a ground.....
Did anyone ever say 'let's go to Sunderland for the weekend' ?

Re: Pre-Season tour - Holland 2017

Bath City shouldn't be a new ground for hard core Reading fans. IIRC Bristol Rovers played there briefly when they left Twerton park and we had a cup replay there....
IF I recall rightly it's more Palmer Park than Elm Park though !

Re: Pre-Season tour - Holland 2017

Presumably because everything was delayed 3 weeks by the play-offs. Stam is still on holiday, isn't he? I doubt he's the only one. They could have looked into this before the playoff final though. It doesn't matter who we play whether we were a premier league or championship team as they're only wa...

Although as we can see you can stick the ball on the 6 yard line and The Informant will still contrive to put it in Row Z !

Is Row Z Royal still around... I imagine that would be uncomfortable.

Re: Jaap Stam Rumours

So their manager's aren't always poached then....
And my reference was to manager's changing, not being poached or sacked.
But thanks for helping the clueless amongst us feel better. There is always one who is even more clueless.

Do you actually get a thrill from being a bit of a dick ?

Re: Jaap Stam Rumours

These reports of 'contenders' and being on short lists is IMHO just reporters making things up. Southampton seem as bad as Watford in terms of how often they change managers and Stam seems pretty clear in his career plans. He knows how he wants to progress and my guess is he'll continue to do things...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

We have no idea on what basis SJM is involved. He might be getting some kind of payment but that's down to the agreement between him and the club. There's no law that says he has to be paid, although you'd suspect there may be some kind of reward attached. He may get a megastore voucher for instance...

Re: RFC Have some money!

Why would they give a new loan rather than just change the terms of the existing one ? It isn't 'accounting tricks' if they have put £60 million in the RFC account, or at least put a credit facility in place. I would guess they have spent the last 6 months looking at what needs doing at the club in ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

The role of the directors is to run the club, and be legally responsible for it being done correctly isn't it ? Are you surprised that non shareholders are on the board ? It's the same as it was under SJM where half the directors were not shareholders, Not sure I entirely understand your point, in m...

Re: RFC Have some money!

So the Chinese are lending the club money to,pay back the debt which is owed to the Chinese ? Not sure that makes much sense. Surely the vast majority of our debt is the money built up over the years as a result of SJM and then the Thai's lending money to fill the annual 'black hole'. As the club is...

Re: RFC Have some money!

So we are now technically about £120 million in debt ? Not that it is real debt, and hopefully there are no interest payments. Clearly it will never be repaid by the club. Not sure why they have lent us money to pay back the money they had previously loaned us. That seems pointless, presumably some ...
