Re: George Puscas To Be Loaned Out

What makes you think the EFL will allow us to bring someone in? So many people on here still under the assumption we will be wheeling and dealing. All the transfers will be in one direction. We've made multi million losses year on year despite selling every thing that could be sold no playing squad...

Re: George Puscas To Be Loaned Out

I must be missing something here but think he is very over rated. When he can be arsed he plays well and contributes but that is generally about one game in six, and i do appreciate that we don't always play to his strengths. He has also had a lot of injuries for a relatively young guy. The figures...

Re: Ex Players

What we must remember in this story is what happened to Cliff Richard.. He was not even arrested, but had the accusation over him for years, before all allegations were dropped, as the accuser was found to be lying. This could be the same, so if Glyfi is innocent, I feel sorry for him as this could ...

Re: Ex Players

Jesus, just how bad are things at Derby? That is desperate stuff. If they sign there, they are guaranteed to score the goals in a 2-0 win. True. I’d happily lose 10-0 to Derby if it means we get rid of them both We have GOT rid of both of them. They are no longer on our books and are free agents, s...

Re: Should Reading drop the Royals nickname ?

Was the chant “come on you biscuits” back in the day?! I’ve only witnessed The Royals, but The Biscuitmen actually relates to something relevant to us, so would be up for the change I don't remember any chant relating to "The Biscuits" or "Biscuitmen". Royals is used more than t...

Re: Should Reading drop the Royals nickname ?

I seem to recall a competition was held for a new nickname after H & P moved out of Reading. But, I cannot remember if this was an idea from the club or local newspaper(s). Whether Royals was the the most common name suggested, or someone from the club/media/local council etc. thought it the bes...

Re: Olise being sold for £8m?

Neither Richards or Olise are genuine Academy products. Richards joined us at 16 having been let go by Fulham. Olise was about the same age when he joined. We’ll get a little bit of compensation but neither played for us from the cradle like Holmes and McIntyre have. Even if Richards had been with ...

Pretty disrespectful to Bayern that he's focused on thanking his former club and not even mentioned his new club.

He has made a separate statement about joinig Bayern (see Pepe's post above).

Re: Free transfers watch

Anyone want a free rose? Danny Rose that is, his contract has ended at Spurs and is available to anyone who can pay decent wages. Guess, that leaves us out of the running for him, then.
