Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Seems that Villa are under investigation by the PL following the sale of their ground to offset the EFL's FFP

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I was really optimistic at the close of the season having survived. We seemed to have a good manager, some good young players, a sense of good feeling at the club and at least a little direction that we may push on. Fast forward to now and what a different feeling. Absolutely no signings at all, no...

Re: Triallist - Denzeil Boadu

It doesn’t make a lot of sense to have him train with us without us considering making him an offer. JLow bemuses me with his comments sometimes. JLow says he hopes to have a chat to JG this week. Be interesting to see if he does and if we get a full interview or drip fed snippets every so often ov...

Re: Triallist - Denzeil Boadu

JLow reckons a permanent contract is unlikely So there is a chance we'll sign him then. Stranded got there first. Presumably Reading will need to make a decision by end of this week as if there is a chance he's up to the level required it would probably be beneficial to include him in the trip to S...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Does anyone know if McCleary has been released or told to stay away and find a new club ? I haven’t heard anything and couldn’t see him in any pics of the players returning to training. Also had a Leeds supporting guy I know text me a few days ago from Portugal saying his kids had made friends with...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

That all sounds odd. It's not up to the players to find a new club is it ? They can simply say 'no thanks, we'll keep taking our wages from you until our contract expires'. If we don't want them, and want to stop paying them it really is our responsibility to find someone prepared to take them on. ...

Re: Rival Watch

Che Adams has gone to Southampton Brum managerless and lost arguably their best player - not a good summer for them so far. Filed alongside Derby and Forest... Really don't get Forest. They seem to do everything to destabilise themselves as often as possible. Now another manager has arrived. How cl...

Re: Barrow on the way ?

It's really annoying when these threads veer away from actual news about the player and decends into 3 pages of crap aquatic puns. It completely defeats the porpoise of starting it. Anyway, with reference the OP, selling Barracuda go some way to alleviating our FFP woes. Agreed, puns on threads rea...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

It’s been reported that Arsenal want Martinez as their no2 so only the offer of regular first team football is going to attract Martinez over that but I can’t see Reading being able to afford his wages even if they were the only club to offer him an alternative deal. And is a struggling division 2 l...

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

I wasn't particularly impressed with Ejaria, of all the loanees I think he was the one I wouldn't want back. Whilst he's clearly skilful and can create opportunities he seemed too lightweight and often lost in games. I'd prefer someone more physical presence and work ethic. A bit of a luxury player...
