Re: Contract situation at end of 2020/21 season.

You do have to acknowledge just how insane the Championship is and the levels of spending involved. There is no 'sensible' way of turning a club like Reading into promotion candidates. Either you throw a ton of money over a few seasons and hope you get promoted before FFP hits or you basically just...

Re: Rumour - Muhamed Besic

Snowflake Royal I'd probably say Evans was a 5.5 - 6.5 player.

Rino is your quintessential 7/10 guy. Just always good, rarely spectacular.

And Chris Gunter was definitely a consistent 6/10, generally if someone asked how he did you'd shrug your shoulders and say "He was alright I guess"

Re: Scott Twine

You guys have been dropping the ball (of twine) on the Twine puns in the last few comments, is it over now that he has signed for MK Dons?

Re: Scott Twine

andrew1957 Turns out he has been stringing us along as he has signed for the mighty MK Dons.

Have MK Dons suddenly got lots of money? Was sure he'd go to a better club. How have they managed to tie this up.

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Neither Richards or Olise are genuine Academy products. Richards joined us at 16 having been let go by Fulham. Olise was about the same age when he joined. We’ll get a little bit of compensation but neither played for us from the cradle like Holmes and McIntyre have. Even if Richards had been with ...

Re: Free transfers watch

Not convinced by Riberio, Forest comments seem to be unconcerned that he is leaving and that he would have been a backup at best if he stayed.

Re: Meite as good as Percy Freeman

So not that I would insult many of the old Reading fans out there but, I know nothing of Percy Freeman but considering he played for us when we were a lower league side and how much football has progressed since then, I feel pretty confident saying that Meite is substantially better.

I support Arsenal, also.

Gotta agree, can tolerate the supporting of a 2nd club but a club that has beaten us in every competitive fixture?

For shame.

Re: Brentford (H) v Swansea (A) - Championship Play Off Final

I have only seen the last 2 play-off final defeats, for me Huddersfield was the worst as at 3-1 up in the shoot-out I thought we were finally going to do it. Swansea just blitzed us hard early doors and while I always wonder about what could have been when Karacan hit the post at 3-2, it never hurt ...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Chatting to a couple of the players on Sat, and they're expecting him to still be here next season. Which, unless he signs a new contract, is pretty bad news. Either they get him to sign a new contract or they sell him, there's no middle ground here. If they keep hold of him in some vain attempt to...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

From the bits and pieces I’ve seen on Michael, he was born in England and is thus eligible for England. He has a Nigerian father and is thus eligible for Nigeria. His mother is Algerian and therefore he is also thus eligible for both Algeria and France. Some media outlets now saying Reading value h...

Re: Brentford (H) v Swansea (A) - Championship Play Off Final

Sutekh Now their parachute payments have finished will Swansea have to sell to try and keep their finances reasonably sane?

They'd have to surely, Ayew is OOC I believe but still he must have cost a pretty penny to keep on the books.

super darren caskey Will be really happy for Brentford if they go up. Not sure if they have been in the top league before but they do deserve it after being close previously.

They have actually been in the top division more than us but not since 1947

Re: Rival Watch

With the Stoke thing, those £91m losses are from their 2nd season back in the Championship, does that mean it's too early to judge if they went over the £39m limit. So the 20/21 figures will make their 3rd season and will complete the first set of 3 financial years in the Championship. However they ...
