Re: Finance

Every time a club wants to buy or sell something, they have to flip a coin. If they call it right then the item is free. They can then choose to go double or nothing.

Re: Ngel Howe on radio

Would Howe speculating in public help the situation or would it be more likely to hinder it?

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

Obviously there is only room for one player in goal Just a little surprised that Marcus barely features, but then, Reading has always seemingly been blessed (with of course, the odd exception season) in this position Death Francis Martinez Ali Marcus Feds Mc anon and on At risk of biting/being whoo...

Re: Old season ticket holder.

The current stadium announcer is routinely cringe-inducing but that doesn’t affect my enjoyment of the whole experience. If anything I find the occasional “new” gaffe to be a great bit of light relief. Think the music has been much better over the past few years. The combo of “Ashes”, the anthem, an...

Programmes - as someone who likes to collect them, especially for grounds ive not been to before. Reduce the size by half and cut the cost to £2 if that. Don’t need 80 pages of detailed content like previous games reviews. For some without the internet that's their only way of reading that informat...

Re: Finance

- It would probably be got around using other forms of payment such as performance bonuses, image rights payments, and so forth. You could see players simultaneously employed as “football consultants” or some such. . This wouldn’t happen. Take a look at the rules for the rugby cap. It covers a wide...

Re: Finance

The maximum contract length is five years. In practical terms the very straightforward way you could do it is say that in five years we are bringing in a salary cap. That way, clubs will have the opportunity to insert a clause into players’ next contracts to have a wage drop if the cap comes into pl...

Re: Best Reading FC performances in your lifetime

Following on from the best XI topic what about the best you have seen and perhaps limit to 2 per section: Best Attacking: Reading 8 Southport 0 in 1970 (bear in mind we had lost 6-2 in the corresponding away fixture) Reading 6 West Ham 0- can't remember the year but it was against Pardew's team in ...

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

If it included the 106 team, I'd have Hislop over Hahnemann, A N Other over Convey and I'd have to fit Sigurdsson in somewhere. The thing that would give Ivar/Sonks and Kitson/Doyle the nod for me is the combination at CB of brains and brawn and up front, both Kitson and Doyle were intelligent, tir...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

If we look at the actual numbers we will see that the logarithmic multiplier feeds back a negative correlation into the daily rate (plus or minus rate multiplier) depending on what factor you choose. It's not inconceivable therefore that some time in the next 3 weeks there will be a move toward a c...

Re: Finance

Jagermesiter1871 How come there isn't uproar that non-playing staff at Reading are being furloughed whilst there is no change to players pay?

Reading have been pretty bad to watch for most of the past seven or eight years, so unlike Liverpool and Spurs we don’t have many fans who still wet the bed.
