Re: Swift to... Southampton

The EP says Liam Moore is Reading’s most valuable player at £4.85m :roll: so, given that fact, perhaps the club should have accepted £4m!

To be fair to the EP though they’re merely filling the long boring days of no real news with something that the transfetmarkt website has done.

Re: Squad for 2020/21

£4m is not a lot for Chelsea but they see it as a cheap punt in the same way we saw someone like Nicky Shorey. If he makes it, he's a bargain, otherwise they loan him out for 3 years so his wages are covered and then flog him and recoup the transfer fee. It's a deal with almost zero risk for them. ...

Jason Tindall announced as the new Bournemouth manager. Tells me they aren't expecting anything next season and probably won't have any players left. Hope the disgusting cnuts fold!

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Looks like you can preorder a shirt on the OS but there doesn’t yet seem to be a way to preorder one with a name and number (presume that will follow once squad numbers are announced). However, in the meantime, you’d think you could buy one with a name and number of your own choosing.

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Takes all sorts of course, but I think this absolutely the wrong way to go. We let James Henry go 10 years ago. In that time we've been Championship winners, we've played in the Premier League,. we've been to the FA Cup semi-final. How long were we supposed to hang on to him? He's a decent pro, but...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Leeds

I don't disagree, I think we're in the situation where he will go for nothing in a year. Absolutely dreadful move by the club all round on how they have handled Moore's transfer/contract situation. he has 3 years left on his contract. if he was in his final year then it'd be good news Liam Moore si...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Just asking but with Osho going who will now be the back up for Yiadom once he starts playing again, Does this also suggest playing 5 - 3 - 2 more often and a midfielder backing up the right wing back position? Is this also the same issue at left back with Obita and Blackett going, and presumably u...

Harrogate go up from the National League, some achievement. Get the diggers in lads, you've got a lot of turf to lay! First few home games for Harrogate will have to be played “away”, presumably at Bradford, Leeds, York or Huddersfield, while the new turf settles in. But given no one is allowed to ...

Yes, as it was half a century ago, I can't remember much about the game except it was a massive crowd, probably the highest attendance I was in at Elm Park and The Biscuitmen did well and gave the Mighty U's a bit of a fright. It was the only time I saw Denis Law, Bobby Charlton etc. "in the f...

Re: Rival Watch

For the Stadium sale? I doubt it. We had a realistic valuation and didn't deliberately record it in a different tax year to pass FFP. It seems unlikely, but we were still under investigation. Think the ground sale element is OK the issue is general overspend on the playing side of things though qui...

Reading FC not releasing their new kit designs one week before the start of a season? What on earth is going on? Don't worry about it.
