Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

I've been meaning to take a stab at replying to this all day, but the day has gotten away from me. You may have seen my recent article for The Tilehurst End. https://thetilehurstend.sbnation.com/2019/5/20/18631429/what-is-financial-fair-play-and-why-should-we-care-reading-fc I'd have a read of that...

CountryRoyal It’s not still regional is it? Can’t remember. Cheltenham or oxford away.


Think someone said it was regional on another thread, makes sense because let's be honest who would want to travel 300 miles for a meaningless game

Re: Rival Watch

Never really understood the clamour from our fans for Elphick...played 3/4 games max and in one of them we conceded 4 goals at home to a bang average Ipswich team (not forgetting all 4 went in on the half Elphick played) Have you forgotten how bad we were that season? I think it was a mixture of wi...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Very much this. I think he may be able to do a job but people seem to be overhyping him with insufficient evidence that he actually is an adequate Championship striker. Unless we keep Bodvarsson/Baldock/McNulty, relying on Nova, Loader and even Nelson if we somehow get him back would be really risk...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I agree on him being a cheaper option, but 9 in 27 (+2) in the Eredivisie is hardly prolific - joint 26th top scorer in the league and 52nd for goals per 90 (min 10 games). 1.8 shots per 90 also suggests a very different style of play to Oliveira, who averages over double that across his career. Pu...

That’s a treck for me. Should do Brentford.


Yup, Brentford is a very easy one to do, even if it’s midweek.


When is their new stadium open? It looks brilliant.


This season is their last at Griffin Park so the 20/21 season. Need Brentford to be at a good date, like going to Griffin Park

Re: Rumour - Liam Kelly

Any news on when our Liam Kelly is on the move? Was hoping he’d be the next out the door Not sure but it does seem that he's been cut adrift a bit from the rest of the squid. Unless we can find more midfielders, we could learn to regret that with a current first team midfield selection of: Rinomhot...

Re: Rumour - Ben Heneghan

Our outgoings dramatically outweigh our incomings, we're broke, our owners aren't but we're not our owners. So basically the same thing. No it isn’t the same thing. But as it was explained to you previously and you didn’t get it there is no point explaining it again. No, I got it, I disagreed with ...

Is the Carabao cup draw also the same day? Is it seeded/non seeded, generally remembered it as being seeded but then we played Birmingham last year in the 1st round Seeding was removed last year.

Well, there are conflicting reports on it.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

To be honest, there were periods throughout the season where I kept changing my mind, after Bolton and Blackburn I thought we were doomed but then after Hull and Brentford with Eza there I thought we'd be safe. It seemed like we would keep giving false promises every so often just to disappoint agai...
