Re: Financial Fair Play

Depends on who is paying them. If we're still covering a lot of their wages then the sooner they're properly gone the better. You would expect Aluko’s wages are being paid entirely by the Chinese, not much point him being moved there otherwise. Can’t see China having FFP rules and fully expect the ...

Re: Swift to Leeds

Seems an ideal candidate for low cost back up to develop. But this sort of signing could suggest a lack of faith in the likes of Barrett, Frost and maybe Holsgrove stepping up? Not sure I'd want him to replace Swift and Eja on his own. Could be wrong but lower league punts never really seem to work...

Re: Swift to Leeds

According to SSN we are interested in Reece Brown from FGR. Plays in Swift’s position from what I can gather, goal scoring ACM Don’t know too much about him tbh Edit - just had a quick search round. 10 goals 11 assists for FGR this season. Just won a div2 player of the month. Looks a good player if...

Re: Swift to Leeds

I like Swift. But if the £7million is used to help keep Baker, Ejaria and Miazga in Reading on permanent deals I am all for selling him. Agreed Sorry for repeating an earlier comment made, but just cannot see any of those three wanting to sign for us permanently anyway so it's meaningless always lo...

Re: What points will we finish on and position

I'm up for that. I think it is going to be such an open season next season, if we get the right players in and keep the momentum we could have a great season, if we do not we could be back where we are now. there will be a wide range of opinions on this. anyone else up for it if I get a few more I ...

Re: What points will we finish on and position

I think Stranded is more likely... I think it may well end up between me and stranded fingers crossed I believe I said the prize was an uncomfortably long hand shake not sure how I do that with myself. On a side note I reckon we should do this after pre-season for next season and see how close we a...

Re: What points will we finish on and position

Silver Fox If we do finish on 50 who wins out of me and Lower West?

NB we're clearly getting 2 home wins and an away draw so this is moot


you have to share the uncomfortably long handshake with each other.

Re: Swift to Leeds

We've only loaned Aluko so his wages are only off the books until December. He's contracted to 2021. Whilst it helps us out with getting his wages out for FFP for this season, there's still the transfer element and he's still got another 18 months to run after that. And with Edwards, with a mutual ...

Re: Season 2018-19 Prediction League

As posted elsewhere I haven't been giving a point for first Reading scorer irrespective of time or result. I should have been doing that. (A point for getting our first scorer right, irrespective of anything else) Up North and myself benefitted from the re-check for the Norwich game (a point each) ...

Re: Swift to Leeds

Thanks for all the additional information. So do clubs really benefit form deep-pocketed owners anymore or are there ways around FFP such as owners paying fee directly as “gifts”? Or you can also potentially sell a player you don’t want to Another club the owners own in let’s say China. To put some...

We all worry about FFP but Ilori and Bacunas sale must have helped and I would hope that atleast half of the percentacge of wage we are paying our loanees is also being covered by the player we are loaning out and the destruction of the contract of David Edwards. we also have removed a descent earn...

Re: The League of 4

Realistically I can see us getting 4 points from the next 3 which is a realistic target anymore is a bonus, I also cant see Wigan getting anything from the next 3 maybe 1 point and I can't see Rotherham getting 6 points or more potentially a maximum of 3 points so by game 44 I expect the table to lo...

Re: What points will we finish on and position

I'm betting a lot on RFC winning at Bolton I think the psychological lift (if we win) will be MASSIVE A defeat would be equally devastating. But I think we are a hugely better team than under Clement. I would expect a big upturn in form and points per game anyway. I worry about Bolton, solely becau...
