Re: Pre-season games 2021/2022

I tend to think there are three important things about a pre-season and results aren't in them. Fitness Strikers getting their eye in with a few goals to find that natural finishing rhythm, and The defensive unit not conceding too many goals and working out their organisational kinks. Somewhere betw...

Re: Pre-season games 2021/2022

Not hugely prolific, 9 goals and 13 assists in 151 appearances.

But gives us something different and takes some pressure off Ovie.

Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

Could really do with losing Moore from the wage bill couldnt we? And prob Swift and Rafael as well, though Swift would leave a big hole in the side Yes Not sure. Relegation to League 1 would be a disaster for our finances and any cost savings must be considered against this risk. So are those three...

He is. And edging back towards old ways. By suggesting you should have your head seen to for being ok with Josh Laurent being sold? You're quite fragile aren't you? Wouldn’t be ok with it, but if someone came in with £8m+ and Reading accepted it and he left, I would totally understand why both part...

5 English clubs have Chinese owners. Us, Wolves, Baggies, Birmingham and Barnsley (one person in a multinational consortium it seems). Our owner > Birmingham's batshit crazy owner. That's a low bar he's stepping over. Think we have a very high variance in where we could finish. I could see us strug...

So like Sir John, they’ll soon hit a ceiling, their fans will be asking for more, he’ll look to sell up and then they’ll be back in the same situation they were, along with the majority of the football league? Relating to one of his earlier points, why the hell wouldn't you want your owner to be si...

Re: Rival Watch

Comparing him to Kane in 2018 probably wasnt a good move, Ian. Hat trick against Panama, 3 penalties and two that deflected off his arse that he knew little about? If we're being really picky, Kane has only scored 2 goals against a team ranked in the Top 10 in a competative fixture and one of them ...

Oh right. You just bought it up, I thought there might be a reason for it.

You said no one who scored 208 PL goals could be a flat track bully didn't you? Just gave a scenario where they could be.

Hendo Ok… but a club career of roughly a goal every 2.5 games would suggest otherwise.

You’re not a flat track bully scoring 208 premier league goals :roll:

How about if you score 208 of them against the bottom 5 and never score against the top 6.

Re: Rumour - Kyle Edwards

Personally, I don't see why the EFL can't scrutinise the financial viability of every transfer for every club and cap squad sizes. If it can impose an embargo when someone overspends then there's no reason why they can't block unsustainable spending in the first place otherwise you're just locking ...
