Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Barrow wasn't all that expensive really (wasn't it 1mil?). Plus he's still first team. Inconsistent sure, but so was Kebe. Just like you slate Aluko (rightly) and big money moves, you can look players from lower and lesser foreign leagues with the same eye. How is Walker doing? How was John OShea? ...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

I think that after all the fuss Howe made about FFP ( and rightly so) at the end of last season, we can assume ha has it in hand now and there is no need for the debate. No matter how much someone has it in hand, you can still debate and lament using £5m on one player, who may not turn out alright....

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

If he doesnt perform, which isn't that hard to imagine, we now have potentially no room for maneuver in January. With that logic, January signings might not perform. If Gomes and his scouting team reckon he'll be a good acquisition, then I'm inclined to trust him/them. As others have pointed out; h...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Maybe not the best use of a loan, but wouldn't say pointless I'd argue its a pretty good use of a loan. We're desperate for GKs (especially a backup keeper), and signing a number 2 of a decent standard at Readings level is really difficult. Loaning a good performer at Prem U21 level is better than ...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Joao is Sheff Weds joint top scorer this season.

He's also scored 1 goal with 1 shot. Cannot argue with those stats. Bargain.

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

I’ve given up any hope of Novakovich playing. Just utter madness that we are going for average strikers when this bloke has done really well at a decent level and has scored a decent amount We might as well sell the bloke when we have the chance to get decent money for him Hmmm.. If we were in for ...

Re: Jose “3-4 Signings This Week”

I for one am glad he's not coming back Yeah brilliant news. I think N-O is a bad apple. We have Baldock, Meite, Nokavich, Loader, and there are other forwards out there. :lol: :lol: Yeah! We don't need Portugese internationals! The players we have already are better! He's a bad apple.. the amount o...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I can't understand a lot of the positivity around the current squad. Are people forgetting how much we struggled without the 5 loanees in Jan? This is the same side (maybe slightly younger and more inexperienced) that really, really struggled at champ level. I remain positive that we'll get a few mo...

Re: Do we really have billionaire owners?

Word from a friend who works in the same office as Gourlay, and may go to explain why its all a bit of a mess. Clement signs some of the players he wants. Gourlay signs some of the players he wants. The owners' sign some of the players they want. Can't be usual to have 3 different sets of stakeholde...

Yes, of course I’m looking forward to it. It’s football. It’s my team playing football. At the Madejski. See old friends, have a pint, have a laugh, hope to see the ’Ding put a few goals past the Rams. Enjoy winning. Enjoy moaning if we don’t perform. Play Devil’s advocate and try to find something...

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

This one is easy for me. Don't play him until the tranny window shuts. If we get what we want (10 mil?) ideal, he's gone, for silly money. If they don't want to pay us what we value him at, we don't sell him. Simple. He's got 4 years left on his contract, and he's the best CB we've got. If we don't ...

Re: Stam to be sacked?

What's more surprising is the nature of how we're going down. The fans are just as dejected as the team. As everyone else is pointing out - other teams' fans would be in uproar. The most rowdy Reading FC fans have got is a little boo at full time, jeering Blackett for a few minutes and moaning on BB...

Okay here's where I think it went wrong. Middle of the park. The gap between our back 4 and our front 3 was enormous last night. For this tactic to work well, we need 3 tireless CM's to be running up and down, working their butts off to create space and make things happen. Unfortunately, we had a so...
