Re: RUMOUR - Paul Smyth

Literally know 3 Irish Smith families and 2 White families (Yes there's a joke there. Move on.) And have never met one spelled with a y. Shows the danger of using anecdotal evidence! Have never met an Irish "White". and the only Irish "Smith" I know is a Nordie who doesn't regar...

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

Stam said last night that he's still looking to bring in a striker, a defender and another midfielder. What actually happens of course may bear no resemblance to that and no doubt Reading will still be waiting for a striker going into the last day of the transfer window. Personally can't see any poi...

Re: The Non - League thread

Just noted that the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup will allow qualifying Hellenic clubs to play in it this season. Is that all Hellenic clubs or just the Premier division sides. I presume that it's actually all qualifying clubs at step 5 not just Hellenic?

Next question is why the hell? He got annihilated at Cardiff on Saturday.

Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

Watson is out until December apparently Out of idle interest, who is our backup backup right back? There were a few saying Gunter should have gone for the man rather than the ball on Saturday, and take the red card - which led me to wondering who would have replaced him, if he was suspended. It was...

Re: Transfer Window

Still say the transfer window should be completely abolished. Alternatively, as there's a window for players, why not a window for management... :lol: Also heard someone suggest, if an under contract player did get all uppity and throw his toys out of the proverbial to get a move, that if that move ...

Next weekend its one of Farnborough, Maidenhead, Woking or Bracknell. Edging towards Bracknell in the FA Cup. Should be a good game at Bracknell, be an achievement for them if they can turn Winchester over. Good week for preparation as well I think, no midweek game for Bracknell while Winch make bi...

Re: New pitch

Was looking forward to a lucious green pitch, one that looked like this: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/ee/6b/04/ee6b0453608b27cad94bb89968b01bf0.jpg However, I was distinctly unimpressed. It was patchy in the corners, and really didn't look that good at all. Is it a case that the pitch needs time ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Leandro Bacuna

I love and good stat and all that, but I'd like to summarise - in Kelly, Swift and Evans we have an incredibly young midfield, and should accept they will have bad games as well as good. I think really that is my overall point, i just forgot to summarise so thanks :) . Bacuna brings a bit more expe...

BBC Berks were reporting that they have been led to believe the deal will be finalised and signed later today (Sunday). The player was at the game yesterday and apparently sitting in the director's box. Let's hope he's not been put off by the performance
