Re: Dom Samuel

His loan spell at Ipswich was a waste of time as he got injured as soon as he was he went there, but forget looking at all the facts ! He has shown no sign at all of scoring 20 goals a season, he first of all needs to play regularly before anyone has a clue if he will make the grade. He's a gamble,...

Re: Dom Samuel

I don't think knee surgery and a fractured ankle counts as "always injured" myself but hey. Anyway wrt the OP, he'll do well for you this season. Has a scoring record of one in three when on loan in that division so fully expect him to bag between 15-20 for Rovers this season. Decent sign...

AthleticoSpizz Dom Samuel "undisclosed" to Blackburn

Even more room at the bottom


Undisclosed but appears to be around 500k. Reasonable fee.

Thats a great fee for an unwanted player.


Yeah then we spend 3 million on a striker who has a much worse goal rate than Samuel

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

How would he know the details of a transfer not involving his club? More than likely, he would. Mick: is he coming here? Sheepshanks: nah, Wolves just accepted a bid of £3m from Reading Its more than likely he is either quoting that (probably incorrect) figure as a way to divert attention in a &quo...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

The transfer fees shouldn't make too much of an impact as this will just sit on the balance sheet and be amortised over the life of the contact. E.G. we sign Darlow for £5m on a 5 year contract, we'll be incurring a 'cost' for accounting purposes of only £1m (£5m over 5 years) per year. It's the wa...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

2 premiership loan plays last season and Premiership players the season before. What striker have we had, that is decent enough, and has remained uninjured long enough to get a good run in the side, do you think we should have played, that wasn't being played? I'm not sure who your question was aim...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Nah just waste our money paying premiership wages to the loan players we have had these last couple of seasons. maybe giving Mendes and others more game time/experience may have avoided this knee jerk reaction to us buying rather then playing our "own" . We just released half a dozen of o...

Re: CONFIMRED - Jon Dadi Bodvarsson

Cracking post murinho. You'd think some of these Reading fans had only started supporting us this year. All of our successful teams have been built on what you describe - a team greater than the sum of its parts. Even last year was an example of that. It's why I've said quite a bit on here recently...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

Having read the whole quote and not just the journo's tweet... are we sure Stam wasn't being sarcastic? "We've got a list with eight possible goalkeepers. Darlow, Neuer and Ter Stegen are on that list" I'm glad it's not just me that thought that! On goalies - we need someone who can deal ...

Re: "10 green Reading graduates standing on a wall"

Some were offered new contracts so I guess the club wanted them and it looks like they were all turned down, worrying. Others sold that really have not seemed to have had much game time. What's left must be looking for loans out.

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

there are plenty of players in the Academy who can play more than one position. Jack Stacey was a winger who played full back or wing back as well, several of the centre backs can play full back or midfield, Josh Barrett pops up as a winger, no 10, striker, Tyler Frost seems to play anywhere, Tom M...

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

so Japp prefers players who can play in mulitple positions but not specialised in any particular position. Now it makes sense why sometimes players play what we consider out of position. Only one problem with that is I'm guessing that academy players are not taught to play like this so that why he ...
