Re: Are we screwed?

Right, time to say it. I'm really concerned by this Puscas rumour that looks true. Yesterday's business looked rational, but this just looks like tipping point. Rafael was a free and Pele was a loan, so they are sensible. The club may still be hoping to move on a couple of high earners, in particul...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

Fukk me we are such a middle class club :D . Really missed my usual grot burger and chips :cry: Also, had a cup of tea from the hipster place by the cycle racks when I got there. £1.80 was a bit steep but got one anyway. Was tempted by a (small) slice of the lemon drizzle cake...… came to £4.50. FO...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

So you're writing him off after one game in which none of the goals were his fault? Fantastic :roll: He also let a weird goal in against Chelsea - the Kennedy one. In isolation the goals might not be worth discussing, but when 3 of the 5 goals give you niggling doubts, it becomes a worry. And yes, ...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

Tried the burger and chips for £7.50. It is cheaper than the vans last season but I actually prefer the catering from last season. Handmade burgers are great and all but the burgers are too dry! Chips are triple cooked but because they sit waiting for so long they go soft. Came away disappointed. S...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

Well I thought the Blue Collar food was fantastic yesterday - wide selection, high quality, reasonable prices, good value. I suspect others agreed, given how customer free the food counters inside the East Stand were! A great step forward by the club. I'd be interested to know what visiting supporte...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

Keeper was shite unfortunately. Loader needs a rocket up his arse. Barrett was slightly better. We'll need to go to three at the back if Yiadom is expected to play RW. I'm not sure how you came to the conclusion the keeper was shite. There is nothing Virginia could have done with the goals and he s...

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

Is it? Really? I'm not going to use the old cliché about Gomes being tactically naive because I don't believe that to be true. It's far worse than that, he's tactically unaware. Seems like a really nice fella but i fear that this season could be just as bad as the last. He's had half a season and a...

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

How have they lost any space? What's it been replaced with? Apparently it`s for stock storage- previously as they didn`t have any room at the stadium it was kept in Maidenhead !! Absolutely staggering that they are giving up retail space for storage. I should imagine they used to make a fair amount...

Re: Pre season tour

I'd question them stats or there is a big dip in that goal!! https://www.readingfc.co.uk/teams/first-team/goalkeeper/joao-virginia/ Other sources have him at 1.92m or 6ft 3" He looks small and as others were commenting around me yesterday, in the pre match huggle fest he was noticeably shorter...

Re: Pre season tour

For me the team picks itself at the moment with others knocking on the door. In my opinion we are stronger than we were pre Gomes and I think we are one striker away from being stronger than end of last season. Keeper worries me. Neither assured at all. Virgina has no presence about him and surpris...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

Burger stall outside the ED stand ran out during half time. Saw Jackie Evans from the club there looking less than impressed. Let’s just hope it was first day teething problems. Bonus for the vegan outfit next door, they were doing a roaring trade. Probably catered on the basis of a whole load of v...

Re: CONFIMRED - Matt Miazga

PistolPete I’m on my own here, but I don’t see Miazga as a top championship defender.

He defended admirably at the end of last season, but I don’t think he’s all that.

I’d be very happy to be proven wrong!


Prepare to smile then!

Re: CONFIMRED - Matt Miazga

I would say if we can keep Meite fit and hungry he will score more than enough goals, he was a beast in the 2nd half of last season. I won't panic too much if we don't get another striker in. We have Novakovich and Loader in reserve too. Haven't the likes of Williams and Gooding always said that id...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Surely there isn't much to gain. It's hardly likely to result in many extra units shifting, just a bit earlier. So if there is a cost attached to releasing earlier it's a no brainer. You would have to plan well in advance to move the release date, so what you make up in one year from positive end o...

Re: Financial Fair Play

This may well have been a non-story with unpaid wages (Bolton, Bury etc.) being the latest trend in reporting football club matters. How did the National Press get hold of the story? Presumably a player or other member of staff was a bit miffed so leaked the info or was it our Defence Secretary who...
