Steven Reid - gone

Off to pursue "other interests". A falling out with Stam and his Dutch coaching staff perhaps? Reading Football Club announces that Steven Reid's employment with the Club has ended with effect from today to enable Steven to pursue new opportunities and challenges. Steven is an exciting and...

Absolute nonsense from Coral here...

not sure it's too far off. Solid mid table for us. Wolves probably too high, Brentford too low.

I don't have high expectations for this season I'm afraid but very happy to be proved wrong (again)

Re: Matchwatch : Sparta Rotterdam (10am) & Cercle Brugge (midday)

Seems like Danny Loader played a full game and then another 29 minutes in the second game when he came on for JDB. Is that a sign that Stam is looking at him for first team duties at some point? Seem to remember Kelly got quite a lot of game time last pre-season? Not so good to see that Quinn only c...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Can't see us paying 3 million for a player and then complaining about inflated transfer fees.. my guess is the touted > 1million is true. If that's the case why don't the club say what they paid? Would a Championship Manager go on record saying that if it was a lie? How would he know the details of...

Re: Rumour - Vito Mannone

Don't know much about him except when he played on loan for Hull at the Madejski a few seasons ago. And he was dreadful. An accident waiting to happen. Could see why Arsenal shipped him on.

Not a signing that fills me with confidence

Re: RUMOUR - Karl Darlow

Having a little look into the keeping situation at Newcastle, apparently they want to bring someone in, Darlow lost his place to Elliott at the end of the season, and they of course have Tim Krul back from his loan at European giants Alkmaar, and who would surely be out of the reach of all but Real...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

What about Glenn Murray or Tomer Hemed. Can't see them both getting games at Brighton. As a real statement of intent, a cheeky bid for Benek Afobe? 3rd choice behind Wilson and King. Or, if he's fully recovered from his injuries I'd love to see Danny Ings in the blue and white hoops. Surely surplus ...

Stam suggesting Samuel has plenty of talent but not enough application or dedication in his presser yesterday. Make or break off season for him

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

If AAH, Gunter and Cooper all join Williams in leaving, plus the outbound loans already announced, this is tarting to look like a lot of player churn. More revolution than evolution perhaps?

Also, wonder how much is down to budget cuts too given the loss of £8m or so in parachute payments?

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

Think it is sending strong signals that the younger fringe players don't see a decent route through to the first team under Stam. Lot of strength ahead of them. He brought Liam Kelly through... I get that. If you are good enough you will get the opportunity. But the bar has been raised at the momen...
