Re: Huddersfield (a)

Applaud those who make the effort, and bemoan the FL for arranging 400 mile round journeys for Tuesday nights, for sure It was meant to be last Saturday TBF Ah yes, and a late rearrangement makes it even harder for those with jobs to book holiday in advance so they can make it to the game. Good poi...

Re: Huddersfield (a)

Indeed - and dare I say most Reading fans are more likely to have white-collar, Monday-Friday, 9-5 jobs that make journeying up to Huddersfield for a 7.45 k/o and then be back in work at 9am the next day challenging/impossible. I don't think any fan who falls into the above category should be called...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Contrary to some opinions above I thought Mutch was very good and looks a strong addition to the midfield. In contrast, despite his goal, Swift was poor and got beaten far too many times in the middle of the park which contributed to our openness. Blackett is an awful footballer, I can't really say ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Nigel Howe cam over and gave him a warm handshake a few minutes ago and now they've disappeared off together.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if he's involved in a separate takeover bid and tbh for me this points towards the Chinese deal being dead in the water

Re: The Next Nine

Barnsley are only 2nd to Newcastle in the form guide for the last 8 away games with 5 wins. so that if far from a walk in the park. Their away wins haven't been overly impressive though, they tend to fall short against teams in the higher places. And they've lost 3 of their better players during Jan

Re: Tomi Juric

The fact he was playing in Holland while Brian & Jaap were out there probably adds a bit of credence to the rumour.

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

For the record - we borrowed £10.4m from them - you can put your life on the fact that was the hold up with the Ilori deal. Where's the rest of the money going I wonder? Brilliant digging there Looking at it positively in the short-term hopefully that is all for transfers (including Ilori deal) Ass...

Basically meaning that we've borrowed money from somebody and in return we've offered security on that debt (in the same way that you would offer your house as security on a mortgage).

Re: Latest set of company accounts

Okay having actually proper read GetReading's report which BR's question was based on, and the financial statements, you'll be unsurprised to hear that GetReading are talking out their arse. What they are calling 'net debt' is only the current assets less the current liabilities. In non-accountancy ...

Re: Latest set of company accounts

Thanks, and forgive my ignorance here, but how do they do that (convert to equity)? They'll issue new shares (to themselves) at the value of the debt they are converting. They're essentially writing off the loans as in the case of administration it is very difficult for equity holders to get their ...
