Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

Started watching Reading in the l8 90s so excluding the 106 team, mine would be: GK - Martinez RB - Griffin CB - Upson CB - Gorkss LB - Harte RM - Kebe CM - Gylfi CM - Leigertwood LM - McAnuff ST - Cureton ST - Forster Subs: Federici Pearce Gunter Karacan McCleary Le Fondre Butler This is pretty mu...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Jimmy Crawford could have been a half decent player but we simply didnt know where to play him. He lost all confidence and we gave up on him. Of that era, Andy Mclaren was a more noticeable bad player as he played less than 10 times, got loaned out and failed a drugs test. I think more recently, we...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It was mentioned in the press briefing that although it may be useless as an absolute measure it was useful in comparing the same stats with other countries as they use similarly inaccurate counts. So you can get an idea of the relative progression. I’m struggling with the idea that comparing two i...

Re: Finance

Need to remember a 40m loss is not necessarily a 40m FFP loss. That should be considerably less. Can you expand on this Stranded. I don’t know the ins and outs of all of this. One thing for FFP is the cost of a players contract is spread over the length of that contract. For instance, if we bought ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

This thread is utterly bizarre, on a forum about Reading football club first team, a random guy posts his interpretation of the limited and flawed data on a pandemic outbreak, and every other post is someone criticising him, or asking him to stop, and then he gets angry about it. Seriously, what's ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Might be of interest looking at Ireland's figures. Of the 4,014 confirmed cases as of midnight 02/04/20, 1,118 required hospitalisation, i.e., 27.8% 158 of those 1118 required ICU treatment. (14.13% of hospitalised cases, 3.93% of confirmed cases) Ireland are testing a lot more per head of populati...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Thanks for that 27.8% ? If only a third of UK confirmed cases are getting hospitalised and 20.6 of all CC’s are dying, that would mean 62% of people entering hospital were leaving in a box. I hope to God it’s not as bad as that! I really want to see a stat for number of confirmed cases being hospit...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It should be noted that not all confirmed cases end up in hospital. Are there stats on Hospital admissions for Covid-19? If, for example, a third of confirmed cases DON'T go into hospital, then that would mean 31% of people being hospitalised are dying. If half manage not to go to hospital then the...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Thank you. But my inadequate brain tells me we will all get exposed to this at some point until herd immunity is achieved. This is not going away for a couple of years lockdown or not. If you really don't get it why not volunteer in your local hospital as a porter or cleaner? That way you might lea...

Re: Best centre back pairing

Miazga is the best of the lot and also seems to be the most commanding. I think McIntyre is probably the one best suited to pairing him. He’s left footed, which brings a bit of balance, reasonably quick, and just oozes class on the ball. Moore is obviously talented but hasn’t really shown it this s...

Re: End of Season Club Dinner

Love the "just" £90 for a 3 course meal and probably a cheap glass of wine that would normally cost no more than £30 in total. So having paid to watch the game you are then paying a charge of around £60 for the privilege of meeting players who we have paid this season for their work. Not ...

Re: Bowen Out.

I feel the Summer transfer window will be incredibly important, we have a team that with the right additions could become a promotion chasing club I reckon.

Its not a case of having sympathy or shedding tears. Its simply a) making usable players unusable (esp Baldock who we really could have used early doors), and b) upsetting the squad.

Re: January Transfer Window

Looking back you could tell it was going to be shocking transfer wise in 2017 as in January Reading signed Adrian Popa and loaned Zat Knight, Reece Oxford and Jordon Mutch, but they did get Lewis Grabban on loan and then promptly failed to play him as a forward. Net result - very poor return. The s...
