Re: Finance

When we spunked all that money on Ejaria and Puskas i said it was mental and that we couldnt afford it. A number of people said i was being a killjoy and should just learn to enjoy football as a releif. Some of those same people now have a 6 page thread on how the finances are screwed. Anyone cheer...

We aren't the only ones to be fair... Leeds posted losses of £21.4m in Marcelo Bielsa's first season, with the Championship club's accounts showing wages rocketed during the 2018/19 campaign. https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11715/11970439/leeds-lost-21m-in-marcelo-bielsas-first-season

Horsham Royal
Jagermesiter1871 I don't really know the stats on John Solako but as a 9 year old I thought he was incredible.

Who did he play for at 9 ?


Chuckle.

Re: Finance

Is it? Someone needs to tell Brentford. They're superb at buying from the lower divisions, just as we were, and when the right player comes along they spend a decent sum of money to add him to their talented and motivated group. 1 example out of 24 Championship clubs, ok cool. Also, Brentford are g...

Re: Finance

We really need to go back to buying young hungry players from L1 and L2, and then add a semi expensive player as and when we can get them. It's a joke the likes of Moore are on around 30k a week at this level. Does he really warrant that money? I don't think so. Get back to our old successful model...

Hendo EGR - I am not sure how you are constantly failing to quote Snowball properly :lol:


Do you mean what the quote looks like, or the contents that I'm quoting?


Just what it looks like, did it when quoting me just then as well!

Re: Omar Richards interest

Snowflake Royal Why does Obita deserve a new contract?

Because he's recovered from injury, played well and is an asset to the squad. And we need more than 1 LB.

Fin.


And it will be cheaper than signing someone new and unproven.

Re: The Non - League thread

Confirmed. All football below the National League has been ended. All results of this season have been expunged. Therefore no relegation from National Leagues North and South this season and everyone will be they were this season at the start of next season whenever that actually happens. https://w...

The badge always said 1871 but have never even thought to check what day that year the club was formed. Poor supporter that I am. Christmas Day, 1871. This is an ...

Yes, and next year is our 150th anniversary... It will be just Reading's luck to find that football does not return to 2022!! 150th anniversary of our first game is 21 Feb 2022. All is not lost. On the 100th we were relegated to Div 4 for the first time (1971) and finished in our lowest Div 4 posit...
