Re: Thai Airways to sponsor us for the Arsenal game

Could it have been perhaps an attempt to even out the perceived gap between little old Reading and the Emirates team.

Re: Can anyone explain why the club is in financial difficul

Man Friday, we took non-league and non-Prem proteges and made them stars, hence we invested in them, and they were good enough to make 8th in their first season at that level, with some truly breath-taking performances throughout the Champ 106 season and into the first Prem season. Those type of per...

Re: Can anyone explain why the club is in financial difficul

One swallow doth not a season make, or to put it in context, the Anton activity is not the whole reason. In my opinion it started with the 2nd season in the Prem for the 106 side. Madejski didn't invest, saw the 106 side as liable to repay their debt in our investment in them, they then expected big...

Re: Cardiff (A) Sponsored by Morrison's transfer fee

Fans were great last night, given the weather and the progress of the game. I didn't notice boos for Alfie, but for Morro definitely.

Re: New Club Captain - Jem Karacan

He's a Turk by blood, resolute, committed and loads other good qualities. Perhaps now he'll calm down on the 50/50s and place more emphasis on mobility, recognising the need to stay on the pitch to lead. The only alternative for me would be Morro.

Re: SJM Interview - BBC South Today (Wednesday)

Didn't think it was a waste of time, but once again it seemed to be more of an advert for a potential investor than a serious state of the club report. There was more about his dwindling real estate portfolio than there was about the state and future of the club. I wonder how many peeps are out ther...

Re: SJM Interview - BBC South Today (Wednesday)

I've said before that i don't buy the general tale of woe that you don't buy a club to get rich, but i do symphasize with SJM on the funds available to grow message. I think perhaps at the time the gravity of the split was only just emerging. Shortly after the statement, when the funds were needed, ...

Re: Buyout

winchester_royal So on the last day of Jan, why did we reject Cardiff's bid for Alf...?


Because it just wasn't enough, same story as the sale of the club.

Re: McCarthy to Arsenal apparently...

And Feds to.......Whether to avoid our ownership shambles or for us to offload a wage. Left with Andersen (if he hasn't gone yet or going as well) backed up by Taylor, but we still have other juniors as well.

Re: Summer Rebuild - Your Preferred 5 To Go?

Only 5, and Swindon finish a 'successful' season in 8th and instantly release 10. We'll release what we can from contracts, possibly some that are not the fans preference to go, while soldiering on with others who we don't want, don't want to be here and will upset the team balance until we can work...

Re: Burnley (h) Prediction Thread

Dilemma, if its a whitewash then they deserve a booing, really for an underperfoming season, but come 5pm we could still be in the playoffs, such is the league this year.... What is going to change between 2-5pm? My apologies, i thought we were a fairly lone early game. That said, the same effect c...

Re: Buyout

The simple back down could be to just name a stand, let the owner name the stadium. Would perhaps mean more to the original core of fans as the plastics infiltrate with the potential growth. The question is, East or West!

Re: Boro - Turn Your Back Protest

Thoroughly agree, but I'm not wasting my time with a 180 mile round trip to suffer another mid-week defeat so I hope my ST beneficiary will honour my gesture. That said,Ian Royal, can you elaborate on how you know your projection of doom? Seriously considering taking a year out of committing to a ST.

Re: Buyout

Managed an annual budget of over a million, but my point is, it's not my money so i don't claim to have the business acumen to create such wealth. However you still seem to have come to the same conclusion, clubs do create profits, the worst profits though seem to come at the expense of growing debt.
