Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Big Hec would be a great signing IF he rediscovers his form. He was terrible for Hull last season and his final season here at Reading. Marriott from Peterborough, Ojo from Scunthorpe and Carey from Plymouth would be great signings Yeah agree with Hec. Would have to be either perm or loan with view...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Another thought - this does mean we could revive the 'wing-back' idea. I guess that both Obita and Yiadom would be better suited to a more free-flowing, attacking role. But then I hear that Clement isn't keen on that style. Something like --------------------------------Manone ---------------------...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

I think Watson had a poor 15 mins or so against Villa which a few of us saw. Apparently (well according to JLow) he had been very good in the previous U23 game

yeah that would be a good shout. along with a couple of home games against decent opposition

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

reckon they'll try to loan out Watson. Richards is only good for cover imo at the moment.

Re: Summer Transfers

Rowett was suggesting they’d need to balance the books this summer so I reckon he’d be desperate to offload wasters like Martin

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

yep, and also wouldn't personally be against playing either Obita or Yiadom as wide midfielders in the right circumstances

Re: Building for next season

agreed with that. Another reason why Yiadom looks a good signing. I think Elphick may well be the right player to come in as well if Villa do go up

Re: Rumour: Denis Kolinger

not that sure. the rumours on him went very quiet towards the back end of last year, and some of his performances would have turned off potential suitors. We'd be unwilling to sell for less than £5m and he is on a long contract. Could see someone like West Brom being interested, but he may decide he...

Re: Rumour: Denis Kolinger

I like Ilori and Moore, but agree McShane is past his sell by, and that Sheff Weds sending off probably was the final straw for Blackett, even though I think he is reasonable CB Would need to shift either of McShane or Blackett out before getting someone in I'd imagine. I don't think Moore will go a...

Re: CONFIMRED - Andy Yiadom

Interesting that BT (who has finally resurfaced) said we'd been after him a long time, as was the rumour.

Wonder what the thinking is with Gunter. Obvs Yiadom hasn't been brought in as back up and wouldn't have been last season. Start of an interesting pre-season I think

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

IF this deal goes through I feel this could be a big turning point. Last season it took forever to get deals over the line and we often lost out. I am also assured that Clement and co seem to be looking at champ players and not foreign punts. A big statement of intent ( yes I used it) if this happe...

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

tbf, it was a fairly single voice in the debate.

Obvs comparisons with MK Dons is absolutely ludicrous. Reading as a town and a club have little in common with them

Went to MK recently for non footballing reasons. Its a seriously weird place. Like Caversham Park village on steroids.

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

there would have been many times when I'd have wanted to play a more defensive wide midfielder last season. Trying to defend a lead when you have one winger who was plain useless, and another who is pretty incapable of defending with any degree of competence hurt us quite badly at times. The likes o...

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

I didnt realise Pack and Reid were OOC at Brizzle. Two of their best players from last season. Reid will go to the Prem probably, be a nice little signing for someone that. I know we were interested in Pack in January, so that may be something that happens. Would need some persuading (and a tidy con...

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

he won't be understudy. He is better than Gunter.

The LB one is interesting. I don't think Obita will be first team ready until Christmas personally. But then if (and its a big if) he does return fully fit, he is a very good LB. Maybe a 6 month loan to fill that spot would be one way forward.

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

another report of this happening - some bloke in the Mail: 'Bit of Champo transfer news. Believe highly-rated Barnsley full-back Andy Yiadom has agreed terms on a four-year deal with Reading and is due for a medical this morning.' I'd be more than happy if he is a replacement for Gunter. Good signin...
