Re: The Local Journo Thread

Not sure he'll do well. He couldn't find a leak for RFC news so can't imagine he could find one in 2 million homes' water supply. I can foresee some very cringe worthy tweets to come from his account.

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

I am not sure why people still think the players have to be loyal. For too long now a contract only means more money for the club and not a commitment to from the player. How many one club players has there been? It is of no surprise that Moores heads been turned by a prem team. So what he handed in...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

For this match or in general? Blackett is suspended and we really don't have the players for a back 3. I honestly don't understand the obsession with a back 3 on here. Ian even put Gunter as a CB in his ideal formation! He's done it for us and Wales ok in the past. It was only with the expectation ...

Re: Smallest Attack in Champ

Our wingers need to pull their socks up. Hope this gets the accolades it deserves. Still my most favourite-ever football moment Bravo! It is up there. I think mine must be when a Norwich supporter in the south stand was giving it the biggun walking down the stairs and then stacked to the bottom.

Re: John Terry?

Is everyone against him joining basing it on footballing reasons or just from blind hatred of the player for being such an utter vile human?

Re: CONFIMRED - Sam Baldock

Midfield will get overrun as it stands. Baldock will have his work cut out getting 1+ chance a game. Williams carried us before and we never replaced him. So having another striker means nothing. ^^Partly this + midfield was over run last season by having CFs which had zero threat on the break and ...

Re: Smallest Attack in Champ

Slow isn't always a major problem for a winger. I will give you (if you really want me to) the names of shedloads of slow players who have been amongst the best wingers the game has seen. I really want you to. I want shedloads of the BEST wingers the game has ever had. John Robertson - Notts Forest...

Re: Good or poor business

Current pricing for CFs atm is insane. So Baldocks price is probably about right. No point worrying about if he get injured as thats part of the game. Clement can only judge by what h has seen. We needed rid of deadwood in the middle, With Meyler coming in, Evans was probs the only asset in CM that ...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

[ With Blackett - there's ability there - I just feel he needs stuff to be kept simple to get some confidence. I'd rather he was made into a left-sided CB, with nothing to do other than defend. Exactly. This is championship football. I remember when our best CB partnership were told just to get rid...

Re: Rumour Kortney Hause

He is a good replacement for Moore. 100+ league apps at 23 shows he has got plenty about him. We should only be interested in loan deals that are to be made permanent though.
I am sure there will be plenty of names chucked around in the next few days.

Re: Summer Transfers

Thought they were buying Bamford. Maybe they are but they had also agreed an £11m deal with Derby for Vydra..but his personal demands killed the deal..now Derby cant buy Waghorn for £8m :shock: ..for fear of breaching FFP regulations.. Leeds are linked with everyone though. Its like their scouting ...

Re: Relegation

New to the team board? As long as this negativity doesn't immediately transfer to the stadium and booing in August then think we will be OK this year. Nothing special though. Clement wants 3 more, including Baldock, so assuming Moore goes this week likely the squad will look a bit different come en...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

not to be rude but... A very good friend of mine Shaka Hislop back in the Elm park days was offered a new contract by Reading with a buyout clause of £1m, which back then was silly money. We all thought no way would Shaka go for a million. Within his contract was a percentage payment to the player ...

know this got mentioned elsewhere, but had a look at Martyn Waghorn's stats. Considering he isn't young, 8 million basically for one 16 goal championship season. The only other goals he has really scored were in the Scottish second tier. Waghorn is a total middle of the road Championship striker no...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

The desperate plea to buy a paper highlighting old old news regarding Walker and Joey is very embarrassing.
Does anyone know why the club doesn't give them anything? (Other than the obvious that they are insufferable self interested journos)

Re: Season 2018/2019

The personnel we have at the back are of a decent quality. The lack of protection they had last season was shocking. Hopefully Meyler will sort this out. Think O'Shea and Blackett will do a job, hoping that they earmarked for playing cup games to give others a rest. Up top, we could get the best st...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I can't understand why anyone here/twatter/on Earth is expecting anything other than a bottom half finish for Reading. I'm not being negative, I just think I'm being realistic. I think we'll finish around 16th-18th. Edit: oh and I do think we'll perform marginally better than last year but will sti...
