Re: BFTG - Brighton

Secondly, we were on the attack early in the 2nd half, looking like we might at least produce a shot of some sort. Won a corner, can't remember how, and enthusiasm is up in the crowd, we were gaining a bit of momentum finally! oxf*rd Guthrie decides to spend the next 30 seconds arguing about whethe...

Re: Le Fondre - Come and get me plea

Thought Alf played well today. Showed a battling spirit and quality touches and link up we have rarely seen from him. Only had a couple of half chances to be fair. Some of his control of the balls lumped towards him was sublime today, but the inescapable fact is that he had a free header 12 yds out...

Re: Madejski comments on club ownership

Now being reported in the Post. http://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/american-consortium-set-make-bid-6465788 One would hope we could get an advance payment from a new buyer in order to spend this transfer window. The FPP checks will be likely to take some time, especially if a c...

The Thames Valley Royals - The Team That Never Was

An interesting radio documentary on 5 Live about the failed merger, albeit from an Oxford perspective. I think you'll be able to listen back using the link below.

Re: Boro Match Thread

So you were wrong. Good. As we're now moving the goalposts - yes I agree Adkins could also do better. But not in terms of bringing in players (again you don't need to be Mensa Queen to see there have been big issues with funding at the club, and Adkins is far from the first to suffer). The funny th...

Re: Safe-Standing petition

This will be a good move, as you say there certainly appears to be some momentum behind this now. I would imagine that a lot of clubs would be in support of safe standing as it enables them to increase capacity and thus gate revenues. If this was to be approved then perhaps standing would be incorpo...

Re: Rumour Miiko Albornoz

You can tell a window is approaching when these sort of rumours start appearing. No more than agent and/or journalist windy guff attempting to get a move going somewhere for a client. I expect Reading will do virtually nothing in the transfer window. If we're very lucky the loan arrangement for Sha...

Re: Match Thread- H'field (A) sponsored by a pint of John Sm

Interesting line-up; I'm surprised to see Drenthe starting so soon and to not start Akpan is a bit of a snub given he's our only remaining CM fit to start with Williams. As an aside, is anyone else having Reading Player problems? The BBC Berks commentary isn't playing and the Huddersfield stream com...

Re: Carrico Watch

HE DOESNT WANT TO PLAY IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP! Thanks, but I had noticed. Unfortunately that has been made pretty clear. ...the obvious downside is that we are losing a player that could potentially have a very positive impact on the team this year. After 6 months what evidence is there to suggest he'...

Re: Carrico Watch

The only way we might benefit is if the loan does not have a option to buy. If he has an awesome season with Sevilla we can bring him back or sell him for a big fee. The way we benefit is we clear a player who isn't likely to play much off the wage bill and it frees up space and money for a player ...

Re: Carrico Watch

I think it's a real shame that he's leaving as I would loved to have seen what a fully fit Carrico is capable of. As others have mentioned, to have come from Sporting Lisbon and then get a loan move to Sevilla after a season of no football must mean he has some decent talent. The knee injuries did n...

Re: U 18 Final @ Fulham this Sunday

I popped along as I live locally and was really impressedwith the quality of play from both sides. Every one of our players looked very comfortable on the ball, this leant itself to a really passing game that i'm sure Adkins will be keen to see. The full-backs got forward and overlapped a lot and th...

Used to like Dellor but he really is coming out with a series of clueless arguments today. :twisted: Dellor is a crap journalist. Got Rodgers sacked, then refused to hold McDermott to account and whinged when he got the sack. After Adkins slapped him down in the Saints post-match interview, it is u...
