Re: Rumour - John O’Shea

Reckon this could be a good appointment.
Maybe half an eye to a succession plan as Jose won't be here for ever and O'Shea has the credentials to make a good manager. Similar mold to Stam.

OK, maybe needs a bit more thought.....

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

I would imagine part of the process at the moment is to look at a long list of players that are out of contract and agree between all the relevant parties whether a player could be of benefit to the team. I’d rather take MM on a free than pay £5m for Pontus Jansson. I appreciate free transfers aren...

Re: CONFIMRED - Michael Morrison

1. There isn't a quote from JG in the club's statement announcing the signing of the player (I get the team in on tour, but this is a simple PR exercise and it's not hard to draft something. It's a noteworthy omission.) 2. Howe's quote is “It was important we bolstered the defensive options availab...

Club statement is a bit ambiguous on whether Jose played any role in this at all. What on earth does this mean? 1.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

The stadium manager is probably one of the more clued up people at the club. Whatever the reason for the tim8ng of the work it won’t be that he forgot it needed doing. There’s been a fair bit of work going on at the ground, it might be that for safety reasons they needed to wait until there weren’t ...

Re: Barrow on the way ?

yeah was from some Spanish source. Apparently not for sale at any price, but seriously it really might be for the best if they do offer a tidy sum Agreed. Anything over £3m I think we should snatch their hand off but with our owners playing hardball maybe we could get more? Might we be better looki...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

It’s a massive risk to ask a 17 year old not only to adapt to a more physical and pressured level of football but to also ask him to play in a position that he is not familiar with. While Olise may cope I think it could also really set him back. It would mean him playing a more disciplined role and ...

Re: Pre season tour

Ian is right, Loader is not a number 9. If we got clever and played the false number 9 then ok. Having him, Olise and Barrett as a flexible front 3 worked to some extent against Birmingham but can’t see that formation working all season and obviously it excluded Meite and Barrow Loader is besT with ...

Re: Speculation: Ethan Amapadu

If Chelsea have a connection with Derby, which Prem clubs do Reading have links with? There appears to be a goalkeeping link to Arsenal. Clement never appeared to bring in players from his old clubs, not Gourlay. And are we likely to get Leicester players as Rodgers was once our manager? Very scept...
