Re: Protest against EPPP

The main reason for achieving Category 1 status is that any other (Premier) club will be prohibited from signing players we have developed (unless the clubs agree to a non-tribunal determined fee). All other categories do not have this protection. So for Reading it is a simlpe cost v benefit analysi...

Re: Blooding Youngsters - When is the right time?

Under 18's beat Villa 4-0 without 4 regular first choices and with Villa playing 3 over age players ( max allowed) as they always want to beat Reading who they regard as a yardstick. Just as significantly the under 16's also won 4-0 But don't rush them. Our youngest ever players were Peter Castle an...

Re: Cardiff punishment

Sorry but its 3 - Wrexham. But the whole argument is valid as to why the Football League does not have a unified disciplinary process. It may have been mentioned before , but what is of great significance is that the timing of the hearing ( much later than ours) was AFTER Cardiff's run of games agai...

Re: Alex McCarthy No.1

Considering he has had a different back 4 in almost all his 1st team games I think he has been brilliant. All young goal keepers will make mistakes, so for once be tolerant because I believe we have a real gem on our hands !

Re: Is kebe next?

Jimmy is out of contract in 18 months, and we are never going to pay him the wages that would keep him. Selling in January is therefore necessary to maximise his value. Unfortunate but thats where we are at know!

Re: Injured Players

The first team no longer use the "bleep test" where anything over 15 would be an outstanding score. The bleep test requires continuous movement, and they have replaced it with the Y test which is basically the same with 20 metre runs and turns, but with a 5sec rest at the end of each leg. ...

Re: Who first took you to football?

My Grandad took me for the first time against Aldershot, when we biked from Farley Hill when I was 7. We subsequently got a lift to Elm Park with Len Crook who was the landlord of the Fox and Hounds in the village at the time, and later took over the Spread Eagle opposite the ground. When we played ...

Re: Mitchell Nelson

Looks the image of Jordan Obita, but not as quick! Seemed ok though against Fallon who has lots of experience, and then went to right back for 2nd half and did good.
