Re: Club up for sale again?

The club have been actively searching for another investor. They've been very public about that though.

FANTASTIC NEWS for the Football Club. However, they'll sell the land to a new developer I'm sure.

Re: CONFIMRED - Sam Baldock

Can't fault the club for not spending money then. £5m deal (with add ons) and a substantial amount paid up front. One in the tooth for the moaning old ladies on here and social media. Good signing, very happy, and as Brighton fans say, he'll get 15 goals a season, 10 or so assists, and his runs off ...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Agree to an extent, but press conferences and such like are a big part of trying to keep the fans feeling engaged with the club Fully agree that whinging about it doesn’t help though, and I thought the retweeting of the leaked kit for example was an appalling misjudgement even though it seems a min...

Away reminds me of Chelsea.

What does the back look like? Plain or hooped?

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Blue shorts again. Why do we persist in pissing about with our home kit year in, year out?

It should be white shorts and white socks.

3/10 for the Home
2/10 for the Away

Chelsea thought enough of him a few years ago to sign him for £500,000.

Re: RUMOUR - Sheyi Ojo

Template PR for the club to make it look like we're being ambitious when we have zero intention of signing the player. We'll get Baldock for around £1.2m and it'll be 'undisclosed'..

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Seems to me the reason for releasing the new kit as late as they can this week is to try and encourage as many people as possible to turn up for Saturday's friendly against Crystal Palace. We can only hope they have bigger news to release today/tomorrow - e.g. a new striker. Imagine the rush with 5...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Ideas have been put to the club but as you say, they cost money, so the lost interest in those ideas. One of which was to fill in the air vents at the backs of the stands. They were happy to look at this, then they realised it would cost a little bit to customise them to fit etc, and the idea stalle...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I thought Paultheroyal said last week the kit is revealed late this week... Why are you all getting worried about this. It’s not unusual for Reading to have no new kit unveiled until the season starts. Ridiculous though that is. Be interesting to know the reason we get these stupidly late release d...

Why are you disappointed? What were you realistically expecting?

He's a decent striker at this level and has a very good assist record.

Re: Sam Baldock

Baldock's stats at this level speak for itself. He'd be a decent signing. Some of our fans are clearly living in cloud cuckoo land if they think we can sign better after the miserable season we had last season. We are not even close to being as a attractive draw as we were 12 months ago! 18 goals i...

Re: Dutch Defender Signs

20 years-old and not travelling to Austria. Sounds like one for the U23's this season and see how he goes.

Brian Tevreden's record in the Dutch market is second to everyone, so I'm mightily excited.
