Re: Fixtures

weren't these draws brilliantly shambolic last year? Teams being pulled out twice etc

hopefully more of that today

Re: Tommy Elphick

He's getting on a bit too. I imagine it's not uncommon for older footballers to take pay cuts so they can get used to living on less money when they retire. ha, I'm sure they don't choose to take the pay cut to help them get used to having less money :) But obviously as they get older they are wort...

Re: Tommy Elphick

Don’t think JLow has ever broken anything, think this is just a rehash of old news

Notice Villa have re-signed Alan Hutton who is no doubt on big wages. Suggests maybe the situation there not as bad as been made out

Re: Rumour: Stephen Ireland

I think the marketing people at the club will be asking the Football League shortly to change our name to London Irish. Justification will be that we have more Irish players than the rugby team and that nowadays Reading is almost a London suburb.. The shame is that unlike in the days of Long and Do...

Re: RUMOUR - Marcus Maddison

yep does seem that we are 'no longer in pole position'. But that also suggests we once were which was interesting. Imagine they are of course trying to get a bidding war going

yep the comments on Twitter are shameful, but no surprise there

Thoughts?


A throw away line about him being ‘linked with Reading’ is utterly meaningless

Re: Rumour: Kemar Roofe for 7m

he was fit for the last 4 games or so, but PC didnt pick him in the squad.

As OMA says, too lightweight, too little influence on any game. Games pass him by. No real defined role. We can do better.

Re: Rumour: Kemar Roofe for 7m

Actually pretty telling how little (genuine) interest there appears to be in any of our players except Moore - and even that is a bit lukewarm I imagine Edwards, Evans and Van Den Berg are being touted to every single club in world football right now. Can only imagine the desperation behind the sce...

Re: SPECULATION: Tammy Abraham

He’d be amazing, but there will be many better clubs in for him than the 20th best Championship team.. Not that he'll be coming here but clubs don't just take league position into account when loaning players out. yeah wages would be one. And I strongly suspect there are 7-8 teams who would be will...

Re: ROYALS PROGRAMME

I would have liked the club to move with the times a bit and produce a digital version that can be downloaded onto phones/tablets. Stick a £1 charge on it and I think they'd make a tidy sum each game. In this day and age the majority of people are glued to their phones pre-match so would make sense...

Re: Strikers.

yep, history would suggest its worth giving Bod an extended break at the start of the season. Him and Nova seem similar players, I'd like to see Nova + new striker starting in pre-season.
