Sam Baldock

Apparently close to signing Sam Baldock. There's no mention of Liam Moore in the article, so it woudl be a straight buy, rather than as a makeweight in a deal for Moore Pete O Rourke is one of the more reliable journalists, IMO, so I'd rate this as pretty likely. https://twitter.com/SportsPeteO/stat...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I think we'd all like to see some wins, or at least good performances in the last couple of games of pre-season Sounds like (and this is a good thing) that PC has been working them very hard in pre-season. Some of the results have been down to doing a full week of hard training then straight into t...

Even not fully fit, he still contributed, his equaliser against Sunderland was massively important.

Re: Summer Transfers

Think our wing options look useful - Barrow plus one of Meite, Popa or Harriott. I honestly think as long as we have a decent striker lined up we look in pretty good shape and have options in all positions. I think we’re some way off. Put it this way, it will be some managerial effort to turn the m...

Re: Summer Transfers

We have a fair amount of prospects available for loan.. presume Southwood, Holmes and Richards could be loaned out too? Bit risky loaning out Richards right now, especially if Blackett goes. We'd only have 3 full backs, one of which isn't fully fit yet True but Gunter has never been injured iirc so...

Re: Wimbledon

Only saw second half so can’t comment on the first half team. Pops and Mo were very good for the first 20 mins, very wide and caused all sorts of problems, then we appeared to switch off and allowed them to come back in. Edawards looked like someone who had won a competition, he is either v unfit o...

Re: Summer Transfers

I suppose realistically if Mannone got injured for any length of time, you'd not want to shove Southwood straight in. But I really hope he will be looked at as at least backup for next season would love for him to go on loan till Christmas at L1/L2 level - and then, assuming the loan went well, bec...

Re: Summer Transfers

Oh everybody on here knows exactly how much effort players are putting in, and every time they lose it's because they don't care and aren't trying hard enough. They're millionaires, didn't you know?

Re: Summer Transfers

Not Gunter, and I'm not going to say who it is, but I have seen photographic evidence of them meeting this player. He probably had his guard down as my friend is not a Reading fan and didn't meet him round here. Wouldn't be surprised if this player is looking for a move though. Personally I'm not b...

Re: Summer Transfers

I figured Gunter is too soft to say something about the current manager. Get where you're coming from, but Gunter is nearly 29, with a decade of experience at this level behind him. He is more likely to be regarded as an "older" player, and, all things being equal, to get the nod over a y...

Re: Summer Transfers

Liked Stam, is not a youth player, likely not an "older" player.. Ilori or Blackett. Gunter has literally just had his replacement signed having had free reign at right back for half a decade. If there's an obvious player to make an assumption about its him. Blackett was hardly at the top...

Re: Summer Transfers

Someone I know spoke to a current player at the weekend and basically said that he loved Jaap Stam but can't say the same for Paul Clement. He also said that youth will not get much a chance under Clement and that it is all about experience and the "older" players....so John O'Shea and Da...
