Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Enjoyed that and glad I paid my £10, though it was touch and go whether I did or not. Plenty t be positive about, while Luton looked poor. As said before pleased for MacIntyre and Osho. Osho looked like he was unfamiliar as a right back, but grew into the game. Lots of potential. Interesting that B...

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

Saw Odimayo play in centre midfield for U23s away at West Brom this season and thought he was the best Reading player on the pitch that night. Little surprised he went and I am little surprised at house going as he’s a bit more of an old school centre forward. Also liked one of the centre backs, Dor...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

I think we need a low cost, experienced centre back to replace Miazga and another defence minded midfielder to provide cover as I'd get rid of Pele and Adam. Don't think Araruna is the right player (strange signing who could be shipped out). I'd offer Obita another contract. With Teddy Howe gone we ...

Think a lot of clubs will struggle to shift underperforming higher paid players this summer. We could have another frustrating summer transfer window in terms of players out

Re: Ex -Player Podcasts (Cureton/McShane)

Thought McShane came across as quite an old school, heart in his sleeve type player / captain but I winder in some of the situations he described he was a bit limited? If a team mate wasn’t all blood and thunder then he didn’t want to know? Every player is different and a captain needs to recognise ...

Yeah I know I miss the bleeding obvious but those staffing levels look ridiculously high.Aside from match day staffing.Sixty odd players ? I suppose a lot of that number are “students”;amongst which historically golden nuggets have been few and far between.Coaching and admin staffing levels are als...

Re: Royal Elm Park

There's something slightly weird in the accounts of one of the companies associated with RFC and the REP development. The Thais have pledged the shares to RFC Propco to someone as security for a loan. The loan has been defaulted upon and therefore someone other than the Thais now own the shares! The...

Re: Finance

Personally, I'm not ok with cicumnavigating the rules, or running up ludicrous debt. Except we don’t have any meaningful debt (the sort that gets you wound up by HMRC) and we’ve not circumvented rules. If we had circumvented them we would be in trouble. We’ve found ways to organise our finances so ...

Re: Championship group administration possible ???

As others have already noted, this is total tosh. I work in the insolvency space. Couple of obvious flaws in the plan. Owners cannot necessarily buy the club and its assets back. The Insolvency Act doesn't allow that to happen. The clubs would have to marketed to ensure the administrators achieve th...

Re: Finance

We just lost £40m in a season Howe was mostly in charge. And in the follow up season didn't lose many players and made some crazy spending. If 18/19 was £40m, even without corona there's no way 19/20 would be anything other than tens of millions of loss again. There's a decent chance 18-20 could se...

Re: Championship group administration possible ???

I really hate the FFP rules. Ensures that today’s rich clubs stay that way. Much prefer the ability to put into a club whatever a founder wants, but it’s as capital, i.e. non-refundable. One additional proviso is that the funding must cover the full extent of contracts, e.g. a 5 year player deal mu...
