Re: Finance

Need to remember a 40m loss is not necessarily a 40m FFP loss. That should be considerably less. Can you expand on this Stranded. I don’t know the ins and outs of all of this. There is quite an extensive list of allowable losses that are not included in the calc - I don't have the full list to hand...

Re: Rival Watch

They won the Fairs Cup in 68 and 71 but that just reinforces that their "history" is basically Revie and not a lot else. Of 7 major trophies won, 6 were under Revie. Of 12 major cup finals reached, 10 were under Revie and 1 was in the season after he left. didn't know that. Just goes to s...

Re: Finance

Moore being given a bumper contract for being refused permission to go to Brighton is looking absolutely insane now. How much must he be on? £30k a week? More? We could have got £8m for him, instead we've paid out how many to him? Mannone was reportedly on big money. Aluko will have been on a huge ...

Player trading

I'm after a favour. I know some of you keep spreadsheets about things like this so I thought I'd ask first rather than recreate the wheel. Can anyone furnish me with a list of our player trading (split between summer and winter transfer windows and in/outs) as follows: 17/18 season 18/19 season 19/2...

Re: Finance

doing a full review of the accounts at the moment. It's interesting that Renhe Sports, the parent company that bought the Madejski Stadium for £26.5m last year sold it to another Dai Yongge owned company for £37.5m this season. in addition, piecing things together it looks like the training ground w...

Off The Pitch post Later start than usual, as I was having lunch with my Dad (buffalo & rye, smokehouse) but The Wellington was well-chosen starting point. Black Country Ales' major Brum centre pub, with at least 17 lines on the go (there's more upstairs, but iirc they're the local ciders). Pre...

Re: BFTG Brum

Definitely a game of two halves. Overall a poor game of football, but we won. We were workmanlike in the second half. Good to get the equaliser early and the second knocked the stuffing out of the Blues and their fans. Birmingham were poor throughout. How have they got so many points? When they play...

Re: Bowen Out.

I do think Puscas is / will be a good goal scorer in this league. For me, we need to build a team around him and a style of play that best suits him. In the last few seasons I can only think of one season with Kermogant where we played in a way that suited our main striker (or vice versa). I think y...

Re: Bowen Out.

The Championship has also changed over the last few years, probably partly driven by the money side of life, partly due to the constant pressure and Merry go round of managers at most clubs. It’s rare to see a side now come to the Madejski and play decent football with their first thought being to w...

Bertrand Armstrong. Utterly bizarre comment really, we've nearly always been well-stocked at left back except for about two matches where we had to play Marcus Williams. Armstrong, Bertrand, and Obita have all been in the top three of a POTS vote and Ian Harte was in the Championship team of the se...

Re: January Transfer Window

Only Mannone and Aluko were financial disasters looking back We tossed away a few million on Edwards and Clement but Barrow was vfm, Bacuna sold at a profit and Bod was reasonable It was as much those ridiculous contracts - 4 years for Kelly and Aluko on sky high wages, 3 for Popa, Mannone apparent...

Re: January Transfer Window

Would rather have Bod here now than Baldock. Also never felt Pelle Clement got a decent run and think Bowen might like his style too.

Re: 20/21 squad and summer transfer business

Wonder if Bowen likes Tennai Watson and has him in mind again as a 2nd or 3rd choice RB? I was also thinking about Smith and wonder whether Holmes will come back more accustomed to adult football? Personally, probably not for both.

Re: BFTG Wednesday (A)

A better question is why we didn’t look or do better against a limited Hull team, rather than WBA. Too many teams come to the Madejski and sit 10 men behind the ball and defend deep. And that was the case with Hull. We aren’t good enough to break teams down that do this, and haven’t been for a numb...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

I think sending 2 players of the same position to the same club at the same time is often rare too? If they can both start they could develop well. Saw Odimayo play centre midfield for U23s against WBA. Looked pretty tidy there so may be a bit mor ever satire than just playing at centre back. I did...
