Seriously people can we stop this now. Sidwell is staying for the forseeable future and has done nothing wrong in the whole scheme of things. He will be pulling on our shirt in 10 days time and playing for our club. Nothing else is important. Thank you, Mrs Sidwell, your views have been noted. Mean...

I honestly believe that the "lack of transfers and/or ambition" only becomes a cause for debate after the transfer window shuts at the end of the month. This is just the type of smart @rse logic that will ensure little gems such as http://hobnob.royals.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21193 beco...

No I'm not...............given what's been going on this summer regarding his future, Sidwell should have the sense to shut the fcuk up and keep his head down.

I guess he thinks that if he opens his mouth often enough that the manager will relent and let him leave.

It's certainly working for me......................the Ist brown envelope containing £2m should secure the most over-rated player on our books.

WR's first mega hypocritical pre season post. How many times in the past was the fact that Coppell sees the players every day in training used as an argument against your all too frequent blinkered thoughts on your pet hate(s) of the week/month/season? And how many times did you accept it as a vali...

you're arguement is that you don't think Oster is third choice, which he most likely is due to the way he has played for Reading under Steve Coppell so far If you were manager of RFC it's quite clear that Oster would be 3rd choice but , thankfully, that is not the case and we haven't wasted a years...

It might just give you an insight into how he rates the two players though, considering Glen was an automatic choice to start even when he wasn't 100% fit. Do you not agree? Convey wasn't first choice at left wing in his first season with us, but started last season as first choice. Things change a...

My main point is that neither Coppell or Oster would have wanted the latters contract extended if it was a foregone conclusion that he would be 3rd choice. Little has just had his best season ever and Oster rightly had to take 2nd place but that doesn't mean that either, this will also be the case n...

I feel sure that you believe there are fairies at the bottom of your garden. Considering it was the same manager selecting from the same players I can't see how you can say last seasons pecking order is irrelevant. This may seem strange, but most managers pick their team on merit and Steve Coppell m...

Oster isn't 3rd choice just like no one else in our first team squad is 3rd choice before the season has even started, and, as I've now said several times, I don't believe that either Coppell or the man himself would have agreed to a contract exention if that was the case. Oster will be doing his be...

I think those observations regarding Convey's first season says much about your judgement whilst offering undue praise to countless players past and present.

Frankly, I think Seol is going to start somewhere but Coppell will not have kept Oster without rating him far higher than some of the garbage on this thread seems to suggest. As I said before, our manager doesn't sign 3rd choices and Oster is only here because Coppell feels he has a part to play, an...

If that was the case he would not have been offered a new contract. He has Premiership experience and WILL be picked on merit. Did I say otherwise? I'm sure he'll be picked on merit, but unless something happens to the other two wingers that merit will almost certainly see him as third in the pecki...

I credit Steve Coppell with the sense not to relegate one of the few player we have with Prem experience to 3rd choice before a ball has been kicked........................shame we can't say the same about many of our fans.

So? You were implying he had more experience and should thus not be 'relegated to third choice'. He WILL be third choice, whatever your delusions. Er no, I was implying that Steve Coppell has a squad of players, some of whom have more experience than others, but that he will have more sense than so...
