Re: Nathan Phillips

It's a nope for me. Unlikely to displace Moore or Morrison and if he does it's blocking progression for McIntyre and Holmes. Bench warming ahead of McIntyre and Holmes helps no one. Holmes impressed me in the cup games. I think he's good for 4th choice. Should we want to play 3 CBs regularly, it's ...

Re: The generic transfer thread

That Thiago signing is a very good one - he adds something to the Liverpool midfield that they don't have. Fabinho, Henderson, Thiago quite easily and obviously their first choice midfield now, and with three players finally in distinct and obvious roles. What is wrong with Wijnaldum? He was arguab...

Don't Panic
Old Man Andrews
NewCorkSeth I agree with that bench.

Heard a lot of good things about Come On Pretty Mama.

If Ooh I wanna take ya makes the bench might as well fold the club.


How can you leave out Key Largo?

Re: Nathan Phillips

isnt our schedule something like 2 games a week right up to May? We'll need 4 CBs Morrison, Moore, McIntrye, Holmes? Still hopeful we sell Moore tbh. In October (after the next international break), I believe fixtures start getting “busy”. And given the number of games in a condensed period all clu...

Re: BFTiFollow - Luton (h) - Carabao Cup

Puscas is one of Europe's best young forwards. I bet he honestly cannot believe what has happened to him since he came here. He might as well not have played last night. Bet he can't wait to leave, and I would not blame him at all. Youngish, he’s 24. Be interesting to see if VP develops a plan B th...

Re: Nathan Phillips

Part of Liverpool’s squad for the 2019/2020 Champions League final win as well so obviously rated very highly. It’s about having a good squad with decent options, Reading need more centre back cover and give the option to play 3 at the back. I would expect him to be seen by Reading as, currently, a ...

Re: Fabio Santos Martins

From Wiki

On 25 October 2017, Martins renewed his contract with Braga until 2022, with the new buyout clause being set at €25 million.


Therefore loan only.

Re: The Local Journo Thread

WestYorksRoyal Lots of rumours from local journalists at the moment, but none about full backs. Don't we need more here? What's our plan if Yiadom or Richards is out?


At the moment, Araruna, Watson and Bristow plus a rumoured link to Ian Maatsen.

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Macclesfield Town wound up :( Not surprised, Macclesfield had been in awful state for the best part of 2 years. The fans will reform the club and they’ll be back playing eventually. National League now playing 2 clubs short of its full constitution (23 clubs in the national division and 21 in the s...

Utter rubbish. No shots on target. If Reading pick up a load of injuries or suspensions the lack of depth is alarming.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Dean Morgan

Luton have made 9 changes as well apparently, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see on this one. Could be a masterstroke or could be a bit of a damp squib. Gerhard Struber (Barnsley manager) said, after their defeat to Luton on Saturday, that his team didn’t handle Luton’s physical side well. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Dean Morgan

Sutekh- are you sure Mr Breakspear hasn`t refereed Reading before ? My info suggests 4 matches previously. You’re right. My spelling was badly off when I looked him up, mind you it’s not helped by the fact he’s been on the league list for 8 years and he’s only reffed a few games in the Championship...

Great job to have :D


One thing I have noticed when I have seen other teams message boards is that the layout of their message boards looks terrible compared to this fine portal.


The original and best.
