Re: Nelson Oliveira

Tore us an absolute new one last year. Very good striker who would be perfect for our system. Would also be a huge statement of intent.

Re: Pre-Season tour - Holland 2017

It does kind of make sense though. Most top flight european teams tend to have a hardened element to their fanbase, and trying to steward that is likely to be both difficult and costly. If they're smart they'll on the sly let in any supporters who have emailed them directly about going out to Hollan...

Re: AAH to KSA?

And hopefully they've given us some ££££'s that have made it hard for us to turn down to.

Sad to see him go, but he's always prone to the odd clanger and his distribution is middling to poor so definitely something we can get over.

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

I think they're all reaching the age now where they need to be playing first team football, however the standard of the clubs they're going to I think shows that they're not up to Championship football. The best outcome for all involved I think, and also clears the path for the likes of Loader and H...

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

Let us not forget that this is the same Ajax side that reached the final of Europa League last season - not quite being good enough to make their first team in no way indicates he's a bad signing for us at this level.

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Have any UK nobbers figured out what sort of setup it requires - what proxy works? Do you need a foreign bank account/address? Guess it may be a case of waiting until the first game of the season to see what works? So - I logged on to the Reading website using a fairly standard proxy and was able t...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

As with Jules and Fosu, can't blame Stacey for moving for what I presume will be a regular place in a first team squad Are there any other youngsters remaining out of contract that could be about to jump ship as well? That said, any clue as to how much Reading got for Stacey as he only signed a new...

Re: RFC Have some money!

It wasn't all owed to the Chinese though, it was mostly owed to the Thais who no doubt wanted a significant chunk of that being paid off as part of the takeover deal

Re: RFC Have some money!

So we are now technically about £120 million in debt ? Not quite. Granted we have £60m more debt, but for the moment we also have £60m more in cash (i.e. assets) and therefore the net debt figure is not impacted. I would assume that the club use this £60M to pay off the existing debt. The Chinese w...

Re: Who do we want, then?

Watched the first leg, Huddersfield considerably the better footballing team and that was in line with every time I've seen either club during the season - therefore logically I'd give us more chance of beating Wednesday and would thus rather they won tonight. However, there's a part of me that thin...

Big shout out to Jaap for the change of shape after 70 mins, completely nullified them for the last quarter of the game and they were reduced to long shots and hoofing it into the box mostly

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Gonna have to change my AV now :(

Thought Tanner had the talent to make it, but couldn't hold down a starting spot in League Two which at his age probably tells you enough.

Re: Team for Fulham (A)

AAH

Gunter
Moore
McShane
Blackett
Obita

Swift
VDB
Williams

Kermie
Grabban

Would be harsh on Kelly, but I think we need VDB and Williams both in the middle to negate Fulham and Swift feels like more of a big game player to me. Always likely to do something special.
