Re: Nathan Tyson to return

A FIT Tyson would be an asset in the Championship as one of a squad of strikers including Tommy Smith but FIT is the operative word. Simon Cox would be a better bet but more expensive of course. Has he (Cox) gone to WBA yet?

Re: Terms of the Doyle deal

£6 and a half million in undated 20p pieces should do the trick !!!!! More to the point how much do we have to pay Cork City as part of any sale on deal ?

Re: RUMOUR - Lee Bowyer

While we are at it let's sign Joey Barton too............NO WAY, we might not be the best team in the world but we do have some kind of reputation, scruffy little Irishmen aside

Re: Blades bid for Lita

Shane Long will be slagged off until he actually does something with his Reading career. At the moment it equates to nothing more than Tyson or Henderson did in their time here Neither Tyson or Henderson were given the chances that Long has had. Granted they were both under a different manager, the...

Re: Havant & Waterlooville friendly

Not a very convincing result tbh...This Havant & Waterlooville side don't sound too bad though! Anyone know where they finished in the League last season? Some people have short memories, don't you remember them giving Liverpool one hell of a scare at Anfield in the Cup? Maybe not with this tea...

Re: Kyocera sponsorship renewed and a new hooped away kit.

I've heard that Kyocera are pulling out of football altogether, not just the Royals and the MadStad, but also Borussia Munchen Gladbach and Athletico Madrid and their other clubs. They are pulling out not the Royals saying no. I've also heard it's either Vodafone or Fuijitsu, both with local links. ...

So where does this leave James Henry?

Now that Kebe has signed presumably Henry will go out on loan again and then in a season's time (or less) be let go just like Simon Cox is about to (allegedly). Another great success for Royals Academy. When will we see one of them becoming a REGULAR member of the first team squad as opposed to the ...

Re: Forgotten Men of the Madejski Era

That Swindon game that someone mentioned was Roget's only start, and Phil Whitehead was such a late inclusion, he had to borrow a swindon goalie top Was that the game that was a thunderous 0-0 draw? Despite the scoreline it was a great game with 3 sent off, ours was Sammy Igoe if I'm right. As far ...

Re: Anybody else preparing to opt out next season?

The Premier League and its pricing and top four winning everything reflect the country as a whole. This is (and always has been) rip off Britain, most expensive energy, water, transport, highest stealth taxes (conning us by saying it's for the good of the planet).

With Jamie Ashdown warming the bench at Pompey, not likely to get past James unless he's injured how about an offer for Ashdown in January? He should never have left Royals. he had deputised for around 10 games at the end of the 2003-2004 season was it? Or 2004-2005? USA was injured, Ashdown did a g...

Coppell's decisions in the close season and up to the transfer window closing have proven to be wrong as they have left us with a squad struggling to compete at this level.

Err... I would suggest that both Celtic and Rangers would beat this Reading team. (Fair point about the rest). He can play in front of bigger, more passionate crowds. Get paid more.

Well done to Ingimarsson

Thoroughly deserved as most people have said. It's reasonable to assume that when Sonko is fully fit next season that he and Ingi will be first choice centrebacks, initially at least. Why therefore in these last few games when Sir Steve has said he wants to try things out for next season as he not g...

Barry the bird boggler I lost track of Dylan Kerr after he left Kilmarnock.... and is Archie still at Queen of the South?


Archie no longer plays and I believe he is now a TV pundit on Scots games for Setanta Sports. Dylan Kerr was in the States coaching at one point but I believe he is now back in the UK.
