Re: BBC Radio Berks

We all pay an annual BBC licence fee and some of us also pay a yearly ifollow subscription to listen to live match broadcasts which should be presented by a professional sports broadcaster and commenter, not a football fan. Some of us rely on the live match broadcast as our only means to be at the g...

Listening to his interview it sounds like our owners have ambitious plans for this little club and its current crop of shitty no mark supporters. Why not wait and see what this man c...

Re: New Manager

my chum once answered the phone to him was he pig ignorant then too? No, he was a gentleman by all accounts. My dealings with Parky back in the day were always a pleasure. After each home match he would sit in a corner of the players bar which was a converted store room at Elm park and just let the...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (a) sponsored by Eric Nixon in goal

Best I’ve seen us play in a long while. Played as a team, all the youngsters did well, Jaakkola MOTM just a shame Loader didn’t take the pen. I don’t mind losing 1-0 when we play away from home like that.

Re: Gourlay

Ron Gourlay needs to go and maybe take Clement with him. Under Gourlay we’ve lost more games than I care to remember, spent more money on signings and contract extensions than I’ve ever witnessed while the sole of our club is sucked out from within. Our fanbase reduced and battered and the club’s id...

Why can he not write in the same tone? Charles Watts would write reasonably provocatively when he reported on Reading so what is stopping Jonathan Low?

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

It is sad and hilarious in equal measures. Best bit is he doesn't give the scoop to his mate Jonathan but chooses to rise like a phoenix and deliver Reading FC news himself. I love that. Low can hardly write in the same tone as Charles Watts about RG. He has a job to do and is in and out of the clu...

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

Wouldn’t be massively suprised to see him back at Reading as CEO one day. Owners obvs like him and maybe Roselare is experience for Gourlay’s replacement when the time comes Owners obviously want him to see out his contract and then say goodbye more like it. Nice guy or not, he’s been no masterstro...

Thanks for sharing. Each snippet of information makes a lot of sense in filling in the gaps as to why the club is in free fall.

Re: Do we really have billionaire owners?

A business loosing £39million over a 2 and a bit year period whilst paying a yearly wage bill of £28million to go backwards and still fans want to see more spending and if not, then question the integrity of our owners. £39million loss…gone/down the pan.

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

Clement is an adequate manager at this level and adequate for a club like ours. If we stick with him and allow him to build a team over the next few seasons, even if we drop down a division it will be the correct thing to do. There’s no quick fix that hasn’t been tried already. He needs to ship play...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

No way should we have lost that game. But oh, what’s the point? We need another striker, another central defender and another creative midfielder. Other than that, we were oxf*rd brilliant ... oh and let's throw in a new goalie as well!

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

If there was already a £10m bid in for the player which hadn't been withdrawn, then yes, quite easily sorted out. It's possible that the whole thing is some sort of put-up job. But very unlikely. Zero reason why Moore would go along with it. Why on earth should he? Given he pushed through his trans...
