Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

To be fair to Sone he's looks like a confidence player and if he's in a struggling team he'll struggle badly. Hoping we'll see a much more confident team with a couple of leaders driving it forward on the pitch next season and therefore Aluko will look more like a £7m player than a £7 player.

Re: Paul Clement to Napoli?

The last thing you want is Clement going. He's seen the shortcomings in the squad and made decisions based on that with purchases being made in the summer to try and address it. Of course whether it's for the good or not remains to be seen but the last thing you want is another change and all back t...

I imagine a lot of the other add ons were promotion based, so not a problem there :)


Fulham's promotion or Reading's though?

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

Fulham have apparently bid £7.5M for Brentford's Jota £7.5M for Aluko is BONKERS. According to TTE the Fulham CEO at their AGM last night said "Reading’s opening offer for Sone Aluko was £1m. Eventually rose to £7m. We didn’t want to sell but that offer was too good to turn down.” https://thet...

Out of interest, when is the next AFCON as I presume Andy’s likely to disappear for a month or so to play in it.

Rumour - Matt Clarke

According to the Chronicle, Reading are on the trail of 21 year old Portsmouth central defender Matt Clarke

If true he’s expected to cost a wedge as he signed a new 3 year deal in February

He has amassed 108 league appearances already so would not expect him to become an Academy prospect...

England 2018 World Cup poll

So will England underachieve again or be more successful than expected.

I’m going to be positive and say they’ll reach the QFs.

Just anything but losing on penalties yet again.

Re: RUMOUR - Marcus Maddison

Yes please. Think both him and Jack Marriott would actually be great business.

Would want to see a couple of Reading's current midfielders leave though to fully accommodate these rumoured changes.

Re: RUMOUR - David Meyler

Looks like he's managed about 25 apps a season for the last 5 years for Hull in the league

He scores 1 in 11 on average and I believe he's the guy who was on the receiving end of Alan Pardew's head a few years ago.

And just for the record he is 28 and an ROI international

Re: Pre Season 2018/19

What is this weird obsession we seem to have with behind closed doors/training ground friendlies? Added cost of running an open stadium during preseason? Not only for us, but for the team(s) we are playing against. Ah, that explains why no other teams play friendlies against teams at their stadiums...
