Pre-season

by Royal_jimmy » 21 Jun 2017 22:46

Are we actually going to play any except for QPR?

Weird the club have left it this late (playoffs or not). Have we ever left it this late to confirm friendlies?

I don't like the lateness in which we do everything pre-season: announcement of tour, kit release, friendly fixture release. It always seems to be like this, regardless of the playoffs

Nice pleased to see Loader score

No McCleary or Obita today? Presuming still coming back from injury/ops

It's only a pre-season friendly but very promising for a lad who is still a month away from his 17th birthday.

Reading's first team squad is NOT playing any pre-season friendlies in front of the public anywhere this year apart from the Vitesse Arnhem game at Wycombe on 29 July.

Al Habsi - as expected - is training today but has played no part in either game with QPR

No idea whether Hurtado has been involved in either but Jake Cooper apparently played 70 minutes in the first game so his proposed move to Millwall is not happening yet and/or perhaps his Reading career is not quite over just yet.

Danny Loader is better than Messi.

Not a complete reserve side from QPR either, smithies, perch, lynch and a couple of others started for them. Would be good experience for him to go to Holland with the squad.
