Re: BFiFollow - Colchester

João 10 Well Hallelujah, someone else not afraid to dish out 10s I gave João a 10 the first time I saw him play for us not just for the performance but what he brought to the team. Was very excited to see him gel in. I've not seen a 10 since for any player since, including from me. Good to see I'm ...

Re: ifollow

kwik-silva It was £10 for midweek games pre-coronavirus too, only difference is that now all games will be on there. And this will continue for as long as grounds are below 50% capacity.


So basically it's a permanent thing for Reading.

Re: Rumour: Ian Maatsen

Thinking about actually signing a left back!?

Say what you like about the owners or Velcro Pornstar, but OMGZ, finally some sense!

You have to pay for I Follow??? I thought it came free on RFC website although I see they are now saying £10 per game whereas season ticket holders got if free. Why don't they get season ticket holders to re-new, get free I follow and refund an amount for any game they are not allowed to attend. Ap...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

One thing we've always been desperate for since Stam is more midfielders.

We've been signing far too many left backs, it's about time we started signing a load of midfielders. :roll:

I'm hoping he is a proper winger not another midfielder who will be made to play out wide.

Re: Veljko Paunović - Whelmgauge

Totally underwhelmed.

But to be fair I'm not crying over Bowen's departure, so for me it's just a punt, see what happens.

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

A STORY THAT MAY BE RELEVANT: My business partners thought it would be a great idea to hire a lady without even reading her CV. I was the only one in the interview panel to read, let alone scrutinise, the CV and uncovered some major discrepancies in dates and basically found out that she was lying a...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

It's strange though: The owners might not really understand how 'things are done' but surely there's a PR and comms team that is experienced in English football and should have immediately picked up that they hadn't said anything about Bowen in the statement. It wouldn't have taken much effort to e...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

I haven't seen a great deal of anger exclusively about the managerial change but I have seen plenty of anger regarding the timing and the way it has been communicated by the owners and clubs press team. The easy way out for the owners would be for them to sanction a written statement in their name ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

I used to be called an RTG on here but losing Bowen could easily set us on a slide to L1 or worse. With Howe also effectively gone it looks like we will be run by agents going forwards. I genuinely hope I am proved wrong but I expect a very tough season ahead and with no one left at the club to exe...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

No room for negativity now. I have been against certain managers but as soon as they join, I will support them. I don't like this change anymore than anyone else and I agree it seems a daft thing to do at a daft time and if I had to put money on it I'd say he's another Gomes who will achieve not muc...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

Is it possible that no manager would commit while there was a soft embargo so we waited until that was removed? Perhaps the new man was more-or-less on board, pencilled in a fair while ago and the final move was delayed by the EFL. And, also, it may be that Bowen was never looked at as a long-term ...

You guys should read the rest of the post. Getting lucky =/= making good decisions. I did, and that’s crap sorry.

Not sure if I’ve missed it - how are we pronouncing his name?

Re: (Soon to be) CONFIMRED - some kind of Serbian bloke

That doesn't mean he's guaranteed to fail. And if the new guy somehow succeeds, and we get lucky on the gamble, that doesn't mean it was a good decision. Yes it does. I share all the frustration and scepticism expressed by so many, and yes, the number of fcuks I give reduces every year but if we so...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunov

I remember another relatively unknown Serb, Slavisa Jokanovic rocking up to Watford in October 2014. Their fans were beside themselves, his Hercules Side relegated the previous season; and sacked by Levski Sofia before that. But Watford were promoted come May 2015. Apparently he and Paunovic are of...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

My feeling is that fans are moving from anger towards apathy. . Spot on, in my case anyway. What concerns me isn’t necessarily that like most I think this is probably a poor signing, because who knows he may end up good. What concerns me is as you suggest I couldn’t give a flying f~~k anymore. New ...
