PATRIQT She wasn't under age... What the hell does that have to do with grooming minors?
It doesn't, but he is in a group of Reading or ex-Reading players who have been involved in scandals.

Re: Injury watch 2021/22

Let's all return to this thread in 6.5 months, 7.4 months, 9 months and the end if the 21/22 season to see which unqualified internet medical advisor was closest.
In fact, let's open this up to any other internet docs who fancy a guess.

Re: Reading FC ltd company announcement

Probably didn't even cover the full cost of his wages. That would mean he was on £60k a week. And that Renhe weren't paying any of his wages separate to the fee Unlikely that the sum was covering the wages directly as it would have to be spread across the two fiscal years. Wages could have been cov...

Re: Should Reading change our club crest...

I’m up for that, nice idea Maybe a start would be for fans to actually buy the flag and display it at the Mad Stad? As the club do not own the Berkshire Flag, that would be an issue as they would not able to stop 3rd party vendors using it and indeed the owners of the flag (Berkshire council?) may ...

Re: Should Reading change our club crest...

rel8ed - I have said for ages I think the shirt should have the flag of Berkshire on it. Maybe a little one on the sleeve. Something to differentiate it from others and make it more personally linked to the area https://www.theflagshop.co.uk/media/catalog/product/cache/1/thumbnail/9df78eab33525d08d...

Re: STs 2021/22

Such as ? The 4-ticket bundles they do every season perchance? I'm suggesting they offer flexibility muirinho. 4 tickets is great but not if it's shitty old dead rubbers at the club's choosing - meet the casual fan half way. The current unofficial flexible system involves buying a season ticket and...

Re: STs 2021/22

I'm happy to renew based on the way the club handled things last time around, offering refunds, taking retainers.... all pretty fair, I actually trust them to do right by the fans if we find ourselves in a repeat position this year. Personally speaking, the main problem I have is convincing Mrs FL t...

I may have posted this last year, but I'm not reading through every page of this thread to check. Whilst I don't know the ins and outs of footballers contracts and how release clauses work, I imagine it's something like "You can leave if a club offer us £x after x period of time and only if tha...

Re: Brentford Play Off losses.

Sounds like the only chance Brentford have of winning a playoff final is if they come up against Reading or at the very least they will lose to a club and set of fans who can genuinely sympathise with their pain.
