Re: Rumour: Howe out

Re: Ex Players

yep and also the constant noises last summer about having to bring a load of signings instead of playing the youth who he'd had all pre-season with

Re: Squad for 2020/21

yeah agreed Meite is a tough one to fit in

Obviously been very good for us, and a crucial part of our make up. But he can only really play as that inside right forward

Re: Rumour: Howe out

there was definitely a hint of a difference of opinion in certain matters in the Howe interview earlier in the year. Esp over last summer's transfer business. Maybe the owners and Howe are trying to steer the club in different directions

New official ‘Back of Shirt’ Partner for 2020-21 - Rapidz. Financial technology firm and digital wallet specialists. Nice bit of extra sponsorship money, will hopefully ease things a little bit in the immediate future. https://www.readingfc.co.uk/news/2020/august/royals-announce-new-partnership-wit...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

I don’t think we’re a long way off having a competitive squad anyway tbh. We could happily lose McNulty and Smith and bring in a winger and we’re ok to start the season

Obvs we need some back up for the FBs but I’m sure there are loads of adequate players knocking about ooc

Re: Season 20/21

looking forward to watching Laurent. Mentioned a few days back I liked the sound of him and Rino as a base with a Swift/Ejaria/Olise ahead of them. Way forward I think

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Yeah the Bowen interview hinted at a bit of tension there tbh. Seem to recall a couple of games being missed with a hammy injury which sounded a little dubious

Pretty sure we won’t see him back

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Moore being linked with Celtic in the Scottish press today. Yep just seen that. 4.5m quoted but with room for negotiation. Basically a plan B if they don’t get Duffy (who’d surely be a lot more expensive) Would be happy with that even if just to get his wages off the books. Plenty of decent replace...

Re: Season 20/21

Don't think Derby are especially good

Just running through the fixtures, its noticeable how much more local the games are. Some good derbies in there. Shame we won't be allowed to watch them though

Re: Season 20/21

I think similar. I dont really go to watch the football as such. tbh I don't watch a lot of footy on TV generally. You go for those moments - the last minute winners, the referee doing something stupid, the handball appeals etc, the crappy goal conceded that you can see coming a mile off... I’ve al...

Re: Season 20/21

I love iFollow. Given all the hassle and cost in getting to games, and how shit they are once you get there most the time, I'm coming round to it as better than going. It’s a very poor second best surely ? Ok, if you live a long way away it’s a compromise but if we are allowed back in I personally ...

Re: Squad for 2020/21

Can't see McNulty being any more than 4th or 5th choice. May hang around and be useful for the cups etc I suppose

Baldock will hang around. useful enough not to be binned into the reserves like Aluko, but being paid too much to agitate a move.

Re: Season 20/21

fixtures out tomorrow then Feels very low key this year. Apparently looking at maybe 30% capacity by October but not holding my breath. You might have to hold your breath for 90 minutes+ if you get to go. :wink: The longer this goes on, the longer some fans will question whether they really miss dr...

Re: Season 20/21

Would much rather go to games with reduced capacity than partake in the deeply unrewarding experience that is ifollow Presumably it will be STH only so that means I’ll be in for a ST (unless they do something daft with the prices). yeah I'ma bit undecided. certainly not committing to anything yet, ...
