No wonder that sticks in your memory! :o . Still, I expect the £30k set you up nicely in 1976 :|

Bizarre post award goes to NR. However Robin Friday did play a couple of games for Reading's Youth team in 1968/9 season.

Re: CONFIMRED - George Evans to Derby

As is usually the case, the truth is somewhere in the middle. Evans is certainly not a player for whom League One is his ceiling and neither is he destined for greatness. With the right breaks, attitude and hard work in the right environment he could make a quality Championship player or maybe even...

Re: CONFIMRED - George Evans to Derby

From the Derby website:

Evans explained what Lampard is expecting of him in a Rams shirt: "He wants me to bring energy" he said.

Oh dear. Oh very dear.

Re: If McDermott hadn't been sacked (the 2nd time)

The job Stam did in his first season really was incredibly lucky Corrected for you. Nonsense. You can’t be lucky for 46 games Assuming you witnessed at least some of the games that year (and there were loads), where we played poorly and managed to scrape wins, you'd know that you can be. And we wer...

Re: If McDermott hadn't been sacked (the 2nd time)

Another question: Why hasn’t McD been a success elsewhere, and why is he always available? He's only ever managed one other football league club, the utter basket case that was and still is Leeds, who seem to change their manager twice a season. And he isn't always available, he's employed as a sco...

Re: Robin Friday

Wasn't at the game that night but feel privileged to say that I did see Robin Friday play for us numerous times. I distinctly remember him scoring against Exeter City in a 4-1 win directly in front of me stood on the Tilehurst End in about 1974.

Re: Robin Friday

It struck me looking at the line-up what an attacking, but lightweight midfield, we had out that night/at the time. Presumably Turner Henderson - Hetzke - Youlden - Moreline (as you'd expect) Murray - Carnaby - Dunphy Friday - Hiron - Nelson 2 of Minty's hat trick were pens? IIRC. Interesting that ...

Re: RUMOUR - George Evans to Sunderland

Could be a deal to rival to the Hughes to Norwich one if we can pull this off. A decent fee for someone who has never shone in a Reading shirt and was never likely to :)

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I understand your instinct to just say to him "No, you're in a contract, tough". But it's real life and real people we're dealing with and to do something like that can only ever be negative. Imagine you and your family wanted to move, you'd found a prospective job somewhere and you said ...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

Just refuse the request, simple as that. The clue is in the question - it's a request, which once refused, puts us back in control instead of inviting Brighton to make a derisory bid. If they really do want him, they'll have to match our (no doubt inflated) valuation or do one and look elsewhere......
