Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

What on earth does this mean? 1. There isn't a quote from JG in the club's statement announcing the signing of the player (I get the team in on tour, but this is a simple PR exercise and it's not hard to draft something. It's a noteworthy omission.) 2. Howe's quote is “It was important we bolstered...

Re: Will Gomes stay?

Yeah he knew what the situation is.

It would be a pretty shitty thing to do if he does walk. Both to the fans and our young players as we have a massive challenge ahead.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

It’s sponsorship and it’s 20ft tall. I’m sure Macron would have wanted it up ASAP. What so 4 people who have been up to the stadium can see it? Additionally, the contract with Puma may have only ‘officially’ ended in the last few days. If so, they would’ve been well within their rights to demand th...

Back to my point - both the kit - and the stadium updates - have been left till late.

It was signed in April. You sound like carillion or kier making late payment excuses

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

We are just not very organised behind the scenes. I was at the stadium yesterday and a contractor was pulling down the huge Puma logo from the ED stand. We announced the Macron deal in April; and we play Posh in 7 days time :lol: We will probably sell more kits and other gear than the last couple of...

Re: Pre season tour

Mid Sussex Royal
Hound Isn’t that just TalkReading quoting some very dodgy source?


All over the Dutch press - I'm out here on business.

No brainer for the player - second tier relegation scrap vs chance of europa league football and playing in a top 6 euro league.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

We can’t just rely on three teams being worse than us for the third season running though can we. As it is, this squad may be competitive in the EFL Trophy. But not the EFL Championship. Gomes knows this too, hence the sudden pressing comments on recruitment. Well, it'll be more competitive than a ...

Not yellow. Think lucky, think China and you won’t be far wrong. We’ve had red flashes on the home shirt in the recent years, so nothing new really Premier League 2012 (horrendous) https://www.newburytoday.co.uk/resizer/420/-1/true/1422607552924.jpg--reading_fc_home_shirt_2012_13.jpg FA Cup Semi Fi...

Re: The 4 needed to complete the team

I think Oliveira will sign this evening

Ejaria once we shift McNulty / Meyler

Galeno once we shift McLeary

Miazga once we shift Gunter

Re: Gary Hooper

You just don’t know, Reading have acquired ageing strikers before and have got more than value for money eg Kermorgant, Quinn, Morley and like those Hooper knows where the goal is so given there’s no transfer fee and given the position of the club this summer this is a no brainier really. And at le...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Kelly's been treated very badly. 100% deserves to stay. Probably my biggest bone of contention with Gomes. I tend to take everything posted on here with a pinch of salt and looking at the video of everyone hanging out at training there's no beef whatsoever between Kelly and Gomes. Hopefully it's a ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Seeing as we are in need of some income, coinciding with the change to Macron - the club may well be looking to release 3 kits this summer

Don’t blame them tbh

Re: Next Season's Squad.

It is odd, they would usually just stick them in the U23’s (essentially ‘light duties’).

If it was 1 or 2 then maybe, but with 5/6/7 then the PFA would surely say something about it.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Hendo
3points given it is a blue logo, then it feels like we will need to have quite a wide white hoop to accommodate it; unless they make it a different colour of course?


Could well just use a white out logo.
