Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

What a few people seem to be missing, Maffff included, is that while Reading are very much within their rights to make them train with the reserves, it’s 100% not a good image. The ‘Reading way’ was originally about signings, but as far as I’m concerned, became more than that. It was about ‘the Roya...

Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

Is forcing these two players to train with the U23s really the right option for a reputable club like Reading? How can anyone say that Danny Loader should apologise for agreeing terms with Wolves; that Yakou Meite should apologise for telling fans that they have a short memory when defending Modou B...

Haven't read the whole thread but have watched the first half online. If you are basing your opinion on Pele on Dellors commentary please please don't. Dellor refusing to call Pele by his name is disgraceful. Pele played like a player who is new to the team and to the pace and style of the game. Th...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins

URZZZZ As I said Bowen and Grosicki are far too good for Yiadom and Richards, needed 5 at the back. Really poor call


Probably the best two wingers (Fulham?) in the league. Agree that it would have been a good call. Richards is incredibly weak.

Re: Meite tweet

The tweets about outgoing players now deemed by some fans as being out of favour were crass at best. Players would have spent the last couple of days seeing new signing coming in followed by a shedload of tweets by so called fans disregarding existing players as if they were used toilet paper.

On loan from Chelsea. Would be an massive coup. Would he still be able to play left back?!

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Virginia is proving to be a very obvious mistake so this would be fabulous. So you're writing him off after one game in which none of the goals were his fault? Fantastic :roll: He also let a weird goal in against Chelsea - the Kennedy one. In isolation the goals might not be worth discussing, but w...

Now, Jose, where did you get to with the proper DMC?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

windermereROYAL Eza would be a perfect fit in this team, if we cant bring the other back we should have gone for him again. cant understand why Gomes didn't want him, from the little we saw of him hes a bloody good player at this level.


Really don't understand this either

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

SCIAG Morrison was signed without Gomes' knowledge and doesn't fit his style of play. Likely to remain fourth choice (or possibly fifth behind Blackett) rather than a starter.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

NewCorkSeth Why do you write his name as Rinho? The "H" comes after the "M". Surely Rino makes more sense as a shortened version?

Re: Next Season's Squad.

We've now seen a match day squad, team and performance. With 5 days to make some transfers, where do we find ourselves? According to Jose, "Our focus right now is for a striker and maybe one midfielder more. We need to score so our focus is In those positions.” :!: In my opinion, and it's harsh...

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

Contract cancelled by mutual consent. I guess we'll never know whether this was a months wages or 11.9, but he's gone. At the time, the signing made a lot of sense. He doesn't seem to be a 'bad apple' but then again, who knows what happened; some of the best leaders are also the ones who take being ...

Re: SPECULATION - Danny Williams

NewCorkSeth Wages. Also I would prefer to sign a deeper midfielder not another box to box mid. Rinomhota has all the attributes to be a great b2b mid and we should be looking to develop that rather than limiting him to a deeper role.
