Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

So bored of this transfer now, seems to have dragged on for eternity. Made worse by the constant tweets about him and how the club need to announce him. In reality transfers probably take a really long time to complete, but we just don't know about them as early as we knew about this one. i.e. with...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

WestYorksRoyal I'd assumed this announcement was being held back for a double announcement with Gibson. Now I'm just confused

Would think they'd want to make a bigger deal about Riquelme. May be why they rushed through the Gibson announcement last night, so today can be all about Riquelme.

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

A bit of yes and no on that one, I think. Most recognised that he was a good player whilst at Fulham, but did think the transfer was on the expensive side. https://hobnob.royals.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=137576&hilit=Aluko God I miss dave. You love him? https://thumbs.gfycat.com/Thought...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Oh they were! Rightfully so in his case because you had the fee that went along with it, I think the excitement came from us actually spending money. Don't remember the twitter reaction, I can imagine the kids getting giddy over us spending a load of cash, but on here I think the general consensus ...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

It is comparable in terms of everyone getting overly excited and then it turning to shit which was my point. Nobody mentioned fees or how long he is signed for. :roll: :roll: Tbf I don't think many people were actually excited when we signed Aluko. Oh they were! Rightfully so in his case because yo...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Think everyone needs to calm down. We are about to sign two player none of you have ever seen play, there is nothing to be excited about yet. Riquelme could be another Aluko for all you lot know. He's on loan; if it doesn't work out he goes back to Madrid. Not remotely comparable with a record fee ...

Re: The a result of the Day Thread

URZZZZ Good win for Cardiff but think this has to go to Cambridge

Lamouchi isn’t lasting much longer at Forest though unless they improve quickly, if reports are to be believed, he wasn’t too far off the sack from their dramatic collapse last season

Lamouchi and Cocu leading the sack race atm.

Re: Rumour - Perry Ng

This would be a really promising signing. If we manage to get Ng, Gibson and Riquelme in this week it’s really not just a ‘sh!t or bust‘ approach from the owners. Agreed wit this, if the 3 signings come off, they are sensible, well thought-out signings which fill holes in the squad and help in the ...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Great stat doing the rounds on twitter

Since it was founded in 2004, 100% of teams who were top of the Championship after two games have gone on to be promoted #readingfc

Certainly seems legit.

Was thinking we should try and get Max Kilman from Wolves. Local lad, and can play LB and CB.

Result of the round? I'm going for Brentford winning 2-0 at Southampton, with Southampton fielding a full strength team.

Re: Champions League/Europa League 2020/21

Stranded FCSB - fomerly Steua Bucharest through in what looks like the game of the round - winning 5-4 on penalties after the tie finished 6-6 AET. 4-4 after 90mins.

And Backa Topola finished the game with 9 men.

Aldershot have signed Ross McCormack. No idea what sort of state he's in these days, but I've just had a fiver on them to win the league at 50/1.
