Re: Favourite signing of the summer

WTRoyal
tmesis Have we ever made an expensive signing who wasn't a flop?

I'm sure we must have done, but I'm struggling to think of any.

In relative terms, yes; didn't Lita break our then transfer record?


And before that iirc Caskey at 750K. Ended up not a bad player.

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

Bloody hell I actually hadn't counted how many we've signed. Almost a whole team.

This beats Burns' "magnificent seven" in number and in (probable) quality.

Wow.

Re: Where will we finish?

Woah woah, from thinking we're screwed to a seriously impressive window... I'm pushing up from 18th to a good midtable finish of 12th.

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

What a bloody fantastic window. Of course we can't count the small yellow birds till they've hatched just yet but potentially our best window??

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

WestYorksRoyal I loved his interview. Great enthusiasm and spoke fluent English which I didn't know. Should make settling in much easier.


What English words did he use that you didn't know?

Re: Financial Fair Play

We’ve paid one transfer fee so far and that seems to have involved little or no real outlay. If Puscas joins that pushes it a bit, but hard to imagine we’ve gone from a self imposed embargo to being wreckless. I think we’re going to be within the limits come the end of the season I think 'wreckless...

Re: CONFIMRED - Pele

MIght be a silly question, but is this the same guy who won three world cups?

If so he'll be a great signing, if fit.

Re: CONFIMRED - Rafael Cabral

I have never seen this guy play, never even heard of him.

Having said that I get the feeling he'll be better than Joao.

Before you mock me, my feelings are generally right half the time.

Re: CONFIMRED: Lucas Joao

I had to recheck, but this is the Joao who scored in a 10 man team against us. You must have a terrible memory - everyone knew this I remember when he scored thinking "oh look that's the guy we are linked with but will never buy in a million years". Then yes I forgot it happened because l...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

What do you base this on? Just because it's an Expensive (by Reading's standards) transfer? Have you seen him play? Pros: Good first touch two footed decent goal scoring record at this level Can play as a target man/focal point The only negative I've been able to find is that he sometimes struggles...
