Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

Sutekh But is he better than McCleary or Barrow? Will he have to wait for an injury to one of those two?

And could Reading field 11 wingers yet?


He's the best male member of the Aluko family....

Re: RUMOUR - Jordan Hugill

Austin.. good call, exactly what I imagine Stam would want in a CF.
WCBAP though, and fitness

What's Danny Ings up to these days?

Re: Rumour - Dave Edwards

Sounds similar to another midfielder that we signed from Wolves in 1989, who went on to become a Royals legend. All Hail the new Mick Gooding! :D Q Would be very pleased with this signing if it happens. Fcuk me, if he's as good as that, then happy days. Pound for pound the best Reading player over ...

Re: The Stam passing game

I think it is over simplifying things to characterise it purely as possession based vs direct, there are multiple game plans within these and the nuances are important I think to succeed at a higher level, you can't just rely on % based play and a possession approach is needed to be progressive.

Re: Food vans

not only that, but they sneaked in a 33% price increase for a cheeseburger (£4.50 to £6.00)

the only possible excuse is that they now offer a wrinkled piece of lettuce in addition to the onions and slice of processed cheese

so it is now slower and more expensive....

Re: Mid table aim

I have no ITK, but suspect there are deals in place awaiting the domino effect of other movements, as is about to happen with the big boys and Neymar ripple effects. The aim, whether stated or not has to be promotion, for Stam and the owners. Long term residency in the Championship isn't going to cu...

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

Just had to accept he had flaws. At our level we will have players with some quality and some imperfections. I liken it to superheroes. They all have their Achilles heel, their Kryptonite, their lack of a left foot, their inability to cross in spite of getting into great positions, their goal-line ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Thanks, having been a company director for a small agency, I assumed it was the same, but wasn't sure with football being football. Seems like only 1 of the Thai consortium is on the new board ( check out the details on the new website) - the one with half of the 25% share held by the consortium (do...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Can someone remind me what the role/remit of the clubs Directors is?

This seems to have changed and includes the majority shareholders plus howe and madejski (non shareholders)

Only one of the Thai consortium is named as a Director.

Thanks

Re: Ramadan

It's pretty routine for Muslim sportsmen and women to fast during Ramadan.
I'm pretty sure Ali would have been fasting and will know exactly how to manage his body.

Play off final merchandise

The official T Shirt I saw on the website isn't very inspiring. They didn't exactly break a sweat on that one. Anyone know/got any plans for producing some unofficial stuff?

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Not seen anything about John Madejski's position since the takeover. Is he still co-chairman? Yes, apparently his position at the club will not change. Excellent. I hope we also keep the stadium name....Not sure I would be so happy with the more Chinese sounding 'Happy Dai Yongge' It sounds like a ...

Re: Dreaded Third Place

According to this data (which doesn't include last season), 3rd placed teams go up 40% of the time, twice as often as any other position.

I think the nature of being a fan is to underplayed one's own team performance. Does anyone remember what they thought when we went up last time under Brian?

Re: Our rightful place?....

genome There's a "we're on our way back" chant, but I've heard nothing about it being "where we belong" :?


OK, so I was maybe trying to fit the stats I found.... :oops: ...but "back" does imply something similar doesn't it...

But good stats right?
