Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (a) sponsored by the need not ot lose

Only a small point regarding the OP - Bristol City v Bolton is on Friday not Saturday And hasn't the stadium's name changed? No matter, good that Sutekh has got this one out early. I believe it is the University of Bolton stadium now. It is and will always be the Reebok Stadium. So many stadiums ha...

Re: Who is the sexiest Reading player of all time?

Just for the record I will NOT be sending a bunch of flowers and a card of congratulations to Ian Royal as I did with the Hottest Female MP winner Gloria De Piero.

I agree, can't believe I forgot about him. Wasn't he quite ill recently too? This could have been the pick me up he needed.

Re: CONFIMRED - New Keeper Emiliano Martinez

No way. If Gomes wants him here it's to start. I think there's no doubt that will happen before long, can just see Jaakkola keeping it until he drops a clanger which to be honest is never too far away. I personally want Martinez to start immediately. How sexy is he btw? He hasn't really registered ...

Re: CONFIMRED - New Keeper Emiliano Martinez

We may be jumping the gun slightly in assuming Martinez will go straight in as first choice. Gomes might just want a stronger number 2 than Sam Walker to put pressure on Jaakkola. No way.

Re: Who is the sexiest Reading player of all time?

OMA has questions to answer here. Ian is sexy, it's simple as that. Who are you to doubt Ian Royal? The man is a serious professional. There is absolutely no doubting Ian's incredible sex appeal. There is however a question mark over whether he ever played for Reading. His opinions carry such weigh...

Re: Who is the sexiest Reading player of all time?

Ian appears odds on to win this at a canter. He needs to tell us some of his beauty secrets as it’s quite clear the average (male) Reading fan clearly finds him sexually alluring. How many polls has Ian won? Feel like this one was rigged. OMA has questions to answer here. Ian is sexy, it's simple a...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Actually enforce the rule about the goalkeeper having to release the ball from their hands within 6 seconds. Enforce it from minute 1 to 90. Apply the same rule to ground goal kicks. As soon as the keeper places the ball down they have 6 seconds to distribute it. I don't think that is a law anymore...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Absolutely agree on De Ligt. The bits and pieces I have seen of him look absolutely top drawer, and he is still a teenager. Been in the national team since he was 17 years old, already the captain of Ajax and already won the Dutch player of the year award. He has a hell of a career ahead of him. Th...

Various press reports that Ajax have agreed to transfer Frenkie De Jong to Barcelona for €90M. The story is that Barca officials are in Amsterdam sorting the details today and it will be officially announced in the next couple of days. He is expected to stay with Ajax on loan until the summer Has l...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Pretty sure he can play if both clubs have agreed to it, there is no set rule I don't believe see Mason Mount playing against Chelsea this year. There is a rule against it in the league I believe. I thought that was a Premier League rule and did not apply to the Football League. Here is the officia...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Would like a permanent decent left back, would round off this transfer window nicely. Joe Mattock at Rotherham is a realistic target as is Bryan Oviedo at Sunderland.
