Re: The Local Journo Thread

see JLows getting his stuff on at that football.london site that Charles Watts disappeared over

Seems Reading have their own page, despite clearly not being in London.

Re: Summer Transfers

do agree Victor to an extent, and I think Lampard has pulled off a great coup getting those two in. Pretty much every other club in the division would have happily taken either I do wonder how often these players actually end up a success though. Tammy Abraham obviously, but for every one of him, th...

Re: Sam Baldock

yeah for me, there were glaring weakness in DCM, FB and up front. PC has filled these gaps with solid performers (if Baldock comes, we are still assuming solely on one journo's tweet It might just be that I'm a little over optimistic as he has pretty much done exactly what I think he should have don...

Re: Summer Transfers

Anyone else noticed how much @ReadingFC have been bigging up Meite? Won't be long before PC tells us he's like a new signing. sounds like he is doing well, so I suppose he is really. It's working then. dunno, just taking the comments from people who have watched him play this pre-season, not the of...

Re: Summer Transfers

PC clearly sees him as someone that can play the cf role. Did he score a few at Sochaux last season? Tbh I thought our days of playing wingers up top were over :( you're a barrel of laughs at the moment CR :lol: He'll only play CF if he is playing the CF role well. He is much bigger and stronger th...

get real, he is going. The Sunderland chairman has tweeted that the bid has been accepted, and the Sunderland Echo says this:

The bid for Evans has been accepted, with the player expected to undergo a medical once he returns from Reading's pre-season tour in Austria.

Re: Sam Baldock

This is just a meh signing. As others have said, its a player who plays the role we are after. Many factors come into effect here. Price, wages, willing to come here and goals scored. He may come good but probably wont set the league alight. I think this league is his level and he will score goals ...

There’s clips of the goals - actually very decent wing play from Aluko for the 2nd (and did well on the first)

Re: Season 2018/2019

Mild concern we're regularly conceding in pre-season. Positive we're scoring. Great to see McNulty bag a goal. Nice to see Smith continue his knack of scoring, although can't see him having much involvement in the first team of course. He seems to be one of those players who look a bit average but ...

Re: Season 2018/2019

Another fair point. I am firmly in the "friendlies results don't matter a jot" camp but there are many who probably put great stock in them. I think what you want to see is the side gearing up for the season and clear tactics in place. I think we’ve done that so far, and this feels a lot ...

Re: Sam Baldock

Yeah exactly that. Baldock knows the division, will work hard and provide some leadership up front There’s a clear plan from PC to bring in experienced leaders and have the flair players - Swift, Barrow, Meite etc play round them. Feels much more solid than this time last year I can’t see a play off...

Re: Season 2018/2019

I don't nessecarily agree with that. It's a new manager doing his first pre season. It's about getting his tactics across and ensuring the players are fit for the season. I can buy that. Except that, if we won all our pre-season games, and scored lots of goals, with lots of shots on target, would w...

Last minute equaliser. 2-2. McNulty bags his first for the club. Rubin Kazan next up. k.o. 4pm BST on Friday. Live on BBC Berks. Can very much see the team PC is looking at to start the season Meite is the one that interests me - 4 games in a row up front, and whilst he hasn’t scored, he sounds lik...

Re: Sam Baldock

Indeed, for whatever reason they have suddenly got a ton of cash

No point comparing us to them

Again not really sure what people are expecting. Season before last he was excellent in a promotion winning side. Decent experience and will provide the movement we severely lacked last season.

Sorry to be all doom and gloom but thoroughly underwhelmed at this (and if this concludes it) our entire summer’s transfers both in and out. Who realistically were you expecting to come in?
