Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

He's making them, yet to see him learn from them. Yeah this. It’s all well and good saying “oh it’s better to make mistakes now”, well true, but what’s to say he doesn’t keep making them? Pauno has definitely deserved until the end of the season, but at present we are the architects of our own down...

Re: Paul Canoville get well soon

Played for us 1986-88 during the two second tier seasons under Ian Branfoot. cost around £60,000 I believe which was cheap even back then. Was amazing for the first few weeks then as someone said above he got a horrific injury at Sunderland which basically finished him, although I recall he did try...

Re: January window

Young and hungry loanees would be good to see. Like others have suggested a wideman or forward would do nicely. Liam Delap (Man City) or Ellis Simms (Everton) two promising players in PL2. We’ll probably look at Benfica / Porto / Sporting knowing our scouts though I'd hope not. We wouldn't be able ...

Snowflake Royal What's the problem with the team, bar Olise it's about the best we can put out?

I think that's the problem - more about the squad than the selection

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by a James Harper debut

Royal Ginger Esteves is only the third reading player to wear number 2 in the last 10 years taking it from Chris Gunter. No googling, who is the third man?

Quite a few have looked "number 2", but I don't know about wearing it.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Colchester United (h) sponsored by Callum & Sam

10 mins gone and it’s already looking like a disgrace. Club not taking the competition or us seriously, I fear. Clubs not taking this cup seriously isn’t new information, and 100% doesn’t just apply to us. Most don’t take it seriously until 1/4 final stages. Tbh, I’m fine with the club treating thi...

Re: New FFP rules

The current way would see the owner loaning the club £50 million. I would think that owners knew that money they put in was gone, they might not be so hasty. I'm not sure any owners put money into league football clubs expecting a return. Outside of the biggest clubs, what examples are there in the...

Re: New FFP rules

Disagree with that part of FFP. There should be a way for owners to invest as much as they want so long as conditions are applied to the “investments” to stop owners, for example, funding through mortgages and loans and not taking responsibility if they “over-reach” themselves. Yeah. They should be...

Beyond comment or caring any longer. Finally are we about to go into freefall. Been teetering on the edge for a while. The soul of the club has been totally destroyed. The sad thing is that I've not been to a Reading game for six and a half months, and I've not missed it. I just don't feel the conn...

My feeling is that fans are moving from anger towards apathy. I've seen a few posts on here trying to defend the decision, but at the end of the day it's just another wild stab in the dark, hoping it works out.

It’s the pure arrogance of Dai that gets me...the arrogance that he expects his club to be promoted and the naiveity in how that goal is achieved. Chucking money doesn’t always work, in fact it rarely works in the Championship. It’s a vastly competitive league and it generally takes years of buildi...

Re: FFP? what?

What is the objective of FFP? Stop clubs spending beyond their means and screwing themselves/relying upon owners? If that is the objective, it has clearly failed. If the Dais were to walk away now and take the stadium and training ground they own with them, we'd be oxf*rd. Yet we haven't breached F...
