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...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

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...

Re: Thatcham Town FA Vase Final

Seems strange that a Trade Union Council would want to own a football club, well away from where they are based. It was tied in with running the bars, and/or security, at the Festival. When they lost the contract for the festival it made the football club and it's facilities surplus to requirements...

So I reckon that would be

Moyes back at Everton
Allardyce at Swansea
Pardew at QPR
Holloway at West Ham
Carvahal probably in Spain


Steve McLaren is supposedly joining QPR

Love to see Holloway go to Everton.

Re: Building for next season

Actually think Clement's arrival and the subsequent run of form has been the best way Reading could have survived as PC would have learned a hell of a lot more about the squad and their mental make up than he would have done if Reading had gone on a winning run. Overall it's not a bad squad Reading ...
