Re: How does the parachute payment works

Divvy would be right normally, but Jonathon Low at GetReading confirms he too was confused by this and says that Reading will get the new deal if the clubs agree it. For some reason the Premier League will allow the three relegated teams this season to be in the new deal when usually they would hav...

Re: PETITION - Away Ticket Pricing

It depends on which side of the fence you're sitting on - as a fan you see them as community institutions with relationships in local communities. I'm not sure a Russian owner gives a shit about that stuff. To him its pounds and pence. A normal business. He see's the relationship between club and c...

Re: PETITION - Away Ticket Pricing

Echoing sentiments above - of course the vast majority of fans will want to pay less, but, as long as clubs are still selling tickets at the higher prices which is giving sufficient returns they have every right to keep on charging the prices. It's a business with finite supply and high demand. Ine...

If only we'd had more hoops in our kit - we'd be pissing the league now.

Re: Championship - Wages League Table 2011/12

I think the general point is that it's impossible for an 'average' Championship size team to compete effectively in the league without running at a loss. Basically it validates SJM and ends any speculation that he was creaming money off the top.

Re: Out of contract players - possible signings

Phil Neville is out of contract at the end of the season.

Don't laugh, he's better than anyone we've got at the moment at left back. He's probably a better DM then Karacan and Leigterwood.

Re: Season tickets 2013/14

Ok, so it's pure speculation time but how about this scenario . . . . . . . RFC will want to send renewals out whilst there is still a remote possibility of staying up. They will gamble that they are better off offering people championship prices now, rather than wait till the end of the season. So ...

Re: Next Reading Manager: Press Conference @ 9:15

Somebody remind me what the point of sacking McDermott was and getting another manager in from a promoted team so late in the season is? I realise most of you are probably of the same view as me. I agree. If they wanted to take the club in a different direction that's one thing, however to replace ...

Re: Transfer budget 2013-14?

My understand of club finance at championship level is that the entire parachute payment will simply fill the gap between player wages and the much lower income. We lost 12m last year in the Championship and our wage bill is much higher now. In fact we would have to sell just to break even. I'm gues...

Re: Season tickets 2013/14

Westwood52 £425 for Championship tickets is toooooo much-£325 to £350 for renewals is about right-if they come in at around that level and bring in Poyet (or better)-I will renew.


If I remember correctly, my first season ticket for the 2010-11 season was £395.

Re: Season tickets 2013/14

So i'm going to predict . . .

Poyet to be announced as manager tomorrow.

Season ticket renewals announced on Monday - price £425 for adults. Deadline of 26th April in order to keep seat.

Tickets go back on sale 1st June at £449.

Re: Thank you Brian!

I want to add my thanks to McDermott for all he's done over the last few years. He had a fantastic approach to the game and technically remains one of our most successful managers.

Re: Man Utd and Arsenal away in league ticket prices

If i'm reading the information provided by the train company correctly, it is saying that journeys from Reading to Waterloo will take an additional 50 minutes on that day. So over 2 hours. http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/managed/service-disruptions/en08b015f4ac4be89f22c21cb8ff1a80/additionalMaps/Read...

Re: Man Utd and Arsenal away in league ticket prices

Having thought about it, I do actually consider it amazing that a game like Arsenal goes all the way to general sale. I mean, it's easy to get to , it's cheap, it might be quite fun. Yet at least 15,000 season ticket holders don't fancy it. I'm quite happy, because as a non-season ticket holder I c...
