Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

I've gone for 3 but I guess it depends if we raise funds through sales

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

So - on the basis of what Eze, Bellingham, Watkins and Benrama were sold for last summer, what would we get for Olise assuming the £8m clause isn't in place. I get all have done well this season and proved decent signings but all were unproven at top level when sold last summer and I'm convinced Oli...

Re: Want to go to Wembley Monday 2PM

My son supports Arsenal. We left Reading when he was 4 and have been in Sussex for 20+ years. I am not one of those that says you have to follow your old man's club, you make your own decisions in life. Quite honestly, I'd rather he supported them than Brighton which is the nearest professional club...

Re: Meite as good as Percy Freeman

So not that I would insult many of the old Reading fans out there but, I know nothing of Percy Freeman but considering he played for us when we were a lower league side and how much football has progressed since then, I feel pretty confident saying that Meite is substantially better. As an older fa...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Chatting to a couple of the players on Sat, and they're expecting him to still be here next season. Which, unless he signs a new contract, is pretty bad news. Either they get him to sign a new contract or they sell him, there's no middle ground here. If they keep hold of him in some vain attempt to...

Re: Brentford (H) v Swansea (A) - Championship Play Off Final

Bolton was worst by a mile, pretty much due to what's been said and at the time it did feel like our once in a lifetime shot at the top tier had gone. FWIW I think we would have played at Elm Park if we'd won as I believe there was a three year grace period to get the necessary number of seats insta...

Re: Free transfers watch

windermereROYAL Kamil Grosicki released by West brom, he did well at Hull, wide player too. wouldn't mind him here. And Charlie Austin but I suspect he is QPR bound.


he must have been on a short contract, only signed Jan last year. Agree, would be an excellent signing, destroyed us up there once

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Actually made a bit of a profit on Bacuna which certainly improves that signing a bit But yes a pretty dreadful set of signings that Clement’s weren’t great either - what was it - Yiadom - yes very good, Meyler, Baldock. Anyone else? Last two prob cost a pretty big whack as well Pretty sure we'd be...

Re: Free transfers watch

I hate to be ageist (especially at my age) but we should not be considering anyone over 30 for big wages (and Taylor is going to expect big wages). And yes, I know that Jimmy Quinn and Ian Harte are the exceptions that prove the rule Doubt Harte was on big wages seeing as he signed for us from Leag...

Re: Brentford Play Off losses.

From the wiki link:

Reading, Brentford, Leeds United, Bristol City and Sheffield United are the only clubs to have lost play-off finals at three different venues.

Where's the third venue?? Do new & old Wembley count as 2?

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

The official club site says we activated an extension clause for Nevers similar to Morro so we will get a proper fee.

If that's the case its probably good business to get a fee now as I can only see him being involved in the cups this season.
