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...

Will everyone stop being so damned racist. Apart from notaracist, because he can't be. I had to recheck, but this is the Joao who scored in a 10 man team against us. Clearly can't be shit.

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...

Re: CONFIMRED - Lucas Boye

Of course we can just pay the bargain price of £3m for Ejaria if FFP allows it. It doesn't ... end of. Well, it would depend on the structure of the deal and how long a contract we give him. Signing a player for "3m" does not mean that it all goes against our FFP this season - could be sp...

Can't score against ten men and let another goal in instead against a managerless team. Only positive...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

He doesn't have a combative bone in his body. He's best drifting around behind the striker. Would disagree based on his performances in the last few games. He really looked like getting stuck in. Let's look at the stats. Last season he had 1.8 tackles, 1.4 fouls, and 1.1 interceptions per 90. By co...

Re: Where will we finish?

18th

Just about comfortably above relegation all season, less scary than last season, but enough of a threat to keep us slightly on our toes.

Whatever his name is, he's not going to have the same effect on the Majeski as Simon Osbourne had for us in the 90s.


Super Si only played one season for us iirc. Left way before we moved to the Mad Stad.

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

How many games have we actually seen this kid play?

Are we really having such an indepth debate about his abilities on the back of some preseason game as he's finding his feet?
