Capped 21 times by Romania since 2012

25 goals in 210 league games for Steaua, very roughly an average of around 1 goal every 8 games

28 years old and in last 6 months of contract

Not to be confused with Adrian Popa, 26, who is a Romanian centre back for Alcala

Another winger because Reading don't do strikers any more

Apparently bid of €600,000 has been accepted and he'll arrive tomorrow!

Poor mans Shaqiri
Then again Rakels looked like a poor mans Kanchelskis on youtube

Good greif.

Has Brian not learnt anything this season?

File under

Dennis
Mendes
Gravenberch
Wiser
VDB
And that keeper

Awful signing. Wasting money like this is rediculous.

Romanian guy at the gym says he's a good player, highlighting his tenacity and work rate as a standout quality.

I suppose worth a risk at that sort of price. When you see the prices quoted for players in this division can see why you'd look abroad

Actually quite like Rakels. Disappointed he got that nasty injury, thought there was some potential there, and hopefully still is.

Brian didn't sign Rakels
VDB has had some very solid performances.
Spelling ridiculous the way you did is pretty ridiculous, especially considering just about everything has spell check these days.

Will apparently be on around £13k a week, doubling if promoted.

Not sure how much truth there's is in that though.

Excellent news. It's been a long time since we've had an Adrian (Adie) at the club.

Anyway, player has confirmed on his Facebook/Instagram and it appears Steaua have announced in their official site too:

Welcome Adie Popa!

My Steaua Bucharest supporting friend has described him as the Romanian Hal Robson-Kanu.

I would be very surprised if

A) Pepe actually has a Steaua supporting mate
B) if said mate exists, he actually knows who Hal Robson-Kanu is
C) that Popa is anything like Hal Robson-Kanu at all

Right wing

Our first Romanian (so cue all the Dracula connections etc.) in action

Actually looks useful but as we know it's just the highlights and he's a winger....

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=E6d7X8MG-oM

Ready for Brum??

No of course not!

Wonder if he'll take the no. 77 shirt at Reading

Is this the end for Garath :lol:
