Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

His record is pretty solid - 59 clean sheets in 198 games - including one against Arsenal in the Champions League. Was 1st choice at Napoli for a while but they signed Pepe Reina from Bayern, so not really a surprise he dropped down to #2. Move to Sampdoria hasn't worked out for him and he is stuck ...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

sounds like there is a strong chance that Rafael is incoming looking at the social media stuff Interesting, assuming its a perm transfer, and yeah surely means he is coming in to be number 1 Pretty convinced it is done and we do need a 3rd 1st team keeper - so happy with that. I also think he is a ...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Virginia is proving to be a very obvious mistake so this would be fabulous. 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 w...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Misunderstanding transfer fees are we? No. The number is up there. Mental. Clarify please @Stranded. The fee - any transfer fee is fairly meaningless. Maguire is not worth 80m to Leicester but Utd have decided he is the only CB that will meet their needs. As Leicester do not need to (or especially)...

Re: The Non - League thread

Impossible without significant funding. Guernsey had (still has I assume?) backing from Bet365 (or whoever) who paid all travel costs for both them to come mainland and the away teams to get there. They were an excellent team when in the CCL. Streets above most opposition. What is a realistic celin...

Re: The Premier League Guide

The PL coverage has moved this season here in Germany back to Sky. Cost has gone up from 9.99 per month for a channel with nearly every other major sporting rights, to 29.99 just because it is Sky - Sky don't even have the monopoly on the Bundesliga anymore so can't even claim that as a major sellin...

Well using the wonderful barometer of social media:

His wife now apparently follows Reading FC on Instagram so this is a done deal.

Re: RUMOUR - Connor Wickham

Decent (not incredible) goal scoring record at Champ level but if fit, a very good player at this level.

No question of talent, just of keeping him fit.

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Interesting. Not sure we would use another loan on a goalkeeper, so could it be a permanent transfer? Otherwise, the loan move for Virginia is a bit of a waste. Looks like any possible deal would be perm as he is seeking a termination of his current contract. He would be a massive upgrade on what w...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

I’ve given up any hope of Novakovich playing. Just utter madness that we are going for average strikers when this bloke has done really well at a decent level and has scored a decent amount We might as well sell the bloke when we have the chance to get decent money for him We may well sell him.

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

10 goals in 32 games, I think Meite had a better strike rate than that last season. 12 in 37 so very similar. For those that like the mins per game stat: Joao hit a goal every 160 mins last season or better than 1 goal in 2 games Meite one every 217 or 1 every 2.5 games Joao has a hit rate of 1 goa...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Madness, :shock: Sam Rourke @samrourke_ Been told Reading are keen on Sheffield Wednesday striker Lucas Joao, but fee could prove a hurdle in this deal, with the Owls wanting upwards of £5m. An initial loan move is a possibility. #ReadingFC #SWFC The last sentence is the key there - loan him this s...

CONFIMRED: Lucas Joao

Apparently, we have opened talks to bring the 25 yo Portugese striker in from Sheff Wed. Scored 10 goals in 31 games for them last year.

Seen a couple of idiots whinging on Social Media that this offer is unfair as it discriminates against fans who choose to make their own way to the game.

Re: Lucas Boye

I'd certainly be happy with the signing based on what I can see about him. If it happens be very interested to see how the deal is structured being as he is out of contract end of the season, and apparently worth a few quid. I'd be surprised however if we were able to afford any sort of transfer fe...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Villa's spending is up to £132.5m this window Did they not see what happened to Fulham last season? Baffling isn't it? I'd get it if they spent that on 3 very high level, experienced players who could improve and nurture their young talent but to bring in 14 new players, the majority of which haven...
