Re: Interesting.Is Nelson Oliveira really available?

Royalwaster I honestly cannot see us losing Joao - any Prem team will surely look both at his scoring and misses and will conclude that he's too risky a proposition for them. Also his work rate would be much too low for the Prem ...


agree. We desperately need another striker though

Re: Free transfers watch

Big wages and expect he'll have a handful of Prem teams after him, so doubt we'd be an option. Maybe, but Reading may fit his ambitions as he gets older. We are also well located near London, that may be a pull. He may be willing to take a bit if a pay cut to be part of something here at Reading. T...

Re: Free transfers watch

Lionel Messi is a free agent this summer, I read. Would be a good option I think for a plan B for when Joao gets injured or we need a plan B if the game needs turning around.

Bournemouth: https://www.afcb.co.uk/news/club-news/club-confirm-2021-retained-and-released-list/ Jack Wilshere will leave the club upon the expiry of his short-term contract, having made 17 appearances and scoring two goals since putting pen to paper in January. Sounds like he stayed fit but wages ...

Re: Free transfers watch

royalp-we I think the Bristol City striker Famara Diedhou would be perfect to supplement Joao, Meite and Puscas next year. They’ll no doubt all be injured come September so we need some sort of back up!


You mean Puscas is staying? :(

Re: Rumour - Ronan Curtis

Also a move to Reading may mean he doesn’t have to move which could be an attraction if he has a young family. He was also born in London despite having spent his younger years out in Ireland. True. It all sounds a perfect fit to me It could also be that he is a Zen Buddhist and is not interested i...

Re: Rumour - Ronan Curtis

If we're competing with Championship clubs who aren't in an FFP straight-jacket, surely the smart money is that he goes elsewhere? He might want to join Reading I was wondering that. What has Reading got to offer that other teams haven't? What does a player look for when a team is interested - is i...

linkenholtroyal Is this like spring watch for free transfers. Get in a bush and watch them. Do we get one each to follow around? Or do we have to share.
