Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Once again a very strange team selection. I know we’ve lost Joao but why oh why is Swift not playing further forward and Pele playing as a holding midfielder with Rino next to him. We look so weak and soft, and our decision making yesterday was atrocious.

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

I believe Boye is out of contract in the summer at Torino. Interestingly enough if you listen to podcasts a lot of the players say that some of the stuff he does in training is unbelievable so I can see him staying, especially if we are losing McCleary which looks likely. I think Gunter and either B...

Re: January Transfer Window

Interesting to see that a lot of Stams signing's still aren't at the club and I think that says a lot about the scatter gun transfer policy we had at the time. A couple of quality players rather than the huge squad we had would have made it far better. Stam certainly had more cash than Clarke, McDer...

Re: Rumour - Glenn Murray

He fell out with Dean Smith after the Fulham game. Only has six months left on his contract (feel free to correct me) so is going to be moved on.

Would much rather him than Murray as provides proper competition for Joao.

Re: Rumour - Vito Mannone

apparently rejected the contract offer from Minnesota, from my understanding hes on mega-money, one of, if not the highest-paid player at the club. I wonder if any transfers in are dependant on him leaving this window. https://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/vito-mannone-minnesota...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h) sponsored by cup fever

Pretty certain McIntyre is still injured. I struggle in centre midfield as I'd like Ovie, Adam, Gomes and Swift all to get a rest. Is East back playing for the 23s? If so I'd probably give him some game time. For me I think I would go with Walker Howe Morrison Miazga Obita McCleary Rino East Boye Ol...

Re: Liam Moore Interview Part 2

It’s great to have access like this to the players, no sound bites or PR answers just honesty. Goes under the radar that the club have no people in the room, although I guess questions are pre cleared.

Not many other clubs would allow this so fair play to Moore and Reading for allowing it.

Re: Bristol City (A)

It costs more to watch Reading at Bristol City than any away fan pays to watch their team in the premier league. Surely that’s not right.

Is there nothing STAR can push the club into here?

Re: Pre season tour

For me the team picks itself at the moment with others knocking on the door. In my opinion we are stronger than we were pre Gomes and I think we are one striker away from being stronger than end of last season. Keeper worries me. Neither assured at all. Virgina has no presence about him and surpris...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

the problem we have with Baker and Miazga is that they are both on roughly 25k a week at Chelsea which Chelsea want paying in full to go out on loan.

We will definitely need to shift the others left behind by Gomes before we can consider Baker and/or Miazga.

Re: Twenty’s Plenty

i seem to remember that you have to charge home and away fans the same amount for the same view. So I assume that if we were to raise prices in the South Stand we would have to raise it in other areas of the ground for home fans too.

Happy to be corrected if this is utter drivel

Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

As said on another thread I believe the Oliveira deal is pretty much done, and we are back in for Baker for another year. Miazga is an issue as he earns more at Chelsea than we can pay him here, so we may pursue a loan deal for him again. In terms of top earners you would be looking at Aluko, Mannon...

Re: Financial Fair Play

I'm hearing the Oliveira deal is around £3.5 - 4m which is pretty much all our budget next year. This is all but done as long as we stay up and I also hear that Baker looks very likely to come back on loan next year. Martinez has been told he must go back to Arsenal for the start of the season.
