Benik Afobe

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50621941

I appreciate that Benik Afobe was only a "Royal" for about 6w at the end of 2011/12, but feeling for the guy re. the above.

Words can;t express how awful that must be.

Like there isn't normally :lol:


Let’s put it this way. There will be even more empty seats than usual.

Good. If people can't back a new manager at a game they shouldn't come.


We haven't got a new manager. We've got Mark Hughes' arsewipe.

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

No mention there on length of contract. The snake confirmed in its Berkshire Live interview: Contract It's till the end of the season. I didn't think about the length of the contract. https://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/new-reading-fc-manager-mark-17086617 So when it takes us ...

Game over after 12 minutes .... again.
Diedhiou with an unmarked header from the edge of the six yard box .... again. Defending non existent from Reading .... again.
Now who will be sent off?

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

I still don;t understand about 10 days ago we were under a soft embargo, and now we've spent millions in fees and wages, without really letting anyone go, well certainly not in the numbers we were expecting. Is Mr Dai going shot or bust, hoping to get out of the Chump and so escape any retribution f...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Have I missed something re. FFP? Has it been rescinded? Or was Aluko's transfer fee actually four-pence halfpenny not £7.5Million? Or maybe his salary was £15 million a season and now he;s out on loan that comes off our FFP liabilities?

I am confused.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

There’s a part of me who thinks we’ll be OK with the promising youngsters coming through. But at the same time, we’re not following too much of a dissimilar path to Ipswich 12 months ago (sell off first teamers, looking at young loans, using academy kids). Interested to see how it will pan out Look...

Re: Meaningless Stats and Trivia from 2018/19

Thought I'd update this for the season just gone. Based on the PA text commentaries over the season, Andy Yiadom committed the most fouls in our League and Cup games with 60. Meite was second on 45, and Swift 3rd on 40. Strangely, (if PA is to be believed), Yiadom was also our most fouled player wit...

Re: BFT(final)G

I believe Ejaria and Baker had relatively hard times at other clubs they've been loaned to. They have little chance of regular 1st team action at Liverpool and Chelsea, so maybe their parent clubs would be happy for a full season loan with us next season as they look as though could be regulars for ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Well after today's game the following Academy players have made 1st XI apps this season :

Richards
Kelly
Rinomhota
Loader
Holmes
McIntyre
Osho
East
Olise
Barrett

with Obita of course a long term injury victim.

With question marks over Kelly, that still seems to be nearly a 1st XI?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by Jordan Holsgrove's dad

By my reckoning the Middlesbrough starting XI cost is £53.25 million, with their bench costing £13 million! c/w our starting XI of £4.5 millionm and our bench .... zilch!

Oh, and we've just taken the lead!!!!

Re: If Bolton don't complete their fixtures

The bigger question is what happens should Bolton fold - presumably unlikely as there appears to be a buyer in the wings. Presumably if Bolton did fold only 2 clubs would go down from our division this season, with 3 coming up as usual. Then only three down from the 3rd tier and four coming up, wit...
