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

Solid if a little unspectacular. One of my BCFC supporting colleagues reckons he’s decent on the ball. Miazga wasn’t exactly Beckenbauer. Handy source of goals too.

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

I liked Jakkola. Thought he was a very dependable back-up keeper, and better than Walker imho. I agree though that Walker is likely to be a very low cost given he was out of contract at Colchester. Wouldn't expect he's on much more than £4-5k per week and clearly bought in to challenge Jakkola as No...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Can't help but feel this is pretty risky, and disappointed we've released two of our own promising young keepers to bring in someone else's for a year. But, Gomes has done well so far, so this kid must really have something about him, in which case it could prove a great move. Heard lots of encoura...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

One of the other benefits of Ejaria was he had a massive work rate and covered huge amounts of ground. I think his ability to track back down the left side did, to some extent, allow Barrow to be freed up from defensive duties. And therefore, we got more out of Barrow as well imho

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

given it is a blue logo, then it feels like we will need to have quite a wide white hoop to accommodate it; unless they make it a different colour of course?

Will we be the Casumo Stadium as well if this is supposedly a game changing sponsorship deal?

If so, it shall be known by me as the Cashew Nut

Re: Ex Players

i always rated McCarthy, I'd have him at Shaka levels. It was shame his kicking was fairly ordinary. One on one I think he was the best keeper I've seen play for Reading, unlike AAH who was terrible coming off his line.

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

The other issue is that we don’t know what the loss is going to be in 18/19. A bloated squad won’t have helped. Nor will our declining income. Transfer spend was better though with the sales of Bacuna and Ilori. But we did blow £5m on Baldock apparently Thought it was £3.5m? Anything over about 350...

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

Yes because 20/21 will only matter alongside 2018/19 and 2019/20. Next season will be a struggle. And of course, the financial clusterfcuk of 2017/18 is exacerbated this season by the fact we made a profit in 2016/16 which mitigated against it last season but is now off the books for FFP. The other...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Hound Whereabouts in GP is the station going to be? Tried googling around etc but couldn’t find the exact location. Guessing near the A33?

I think it is the other side of the new houses

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Please don't be some rubbish ugly no name Chinese betting company. It's going to be isn't it? I actually didn't think Carabao was that bad in the great scheme of things. Better than a betting company. Just hope it isn’t a betting company. Aren’t something like 17 out of 24 clubs in the Championship...

Re: Are we screwed?

We're in the same dangerous territory we've been in for years. But a lot of the repairs have started. A tight, well motivated, drilled and dedicated squad can take you a long way in the Championship and there's plenty of promise in our Academy. With the work we're doing, even if the worst happens a...

Re: CONFIRMED: Novakovich to stay on loan nxt season, this time at Fotuna Sittard

If all scouting was done based on a just watching goals scored on YouTube videos .... we'd have a team of Mass Sarrs. For those too young to remember, The story goes that the Reading manager back in Tommy Burns signed a player called Mass Sarr based solely on a highlights video his agent had put to...

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

Spurs are very much a one man team with very little creativity for me. Solid but unspectacular. I’d sell Eriksen, and think they need a second forward in the Mane, Martial mode. Think Moura does that role a bit but is he high enough quality? No top forward will go there all the time Kane is “the man”

Re: Financial Fair Play

Didn’t Sheff Weds have a “self imposed” transfer ban last summer? In essence, it is the club signalling to (or agreeing with) the EFL that they are taking the whole FFP thing seriously and please don’t impose sanctions as we’ve been doing everything we can (ie the complete opposite of Birmingham City)
