Re: Summer 2014 Transfer Window

Not sure I give much of a rat's arse for the World Cup. In 2010 we saw displays from England that were just shocking. There was no passion and just a load of grumbling overpaid players who wasted time being in South Africa. This time any better? Expectations are low. Thought that we would get beat 2...

Re: Summer 2014 Transfer Window

Am I the only one who couldn't give an utter monkeys at this stage? World Cup to look forward to, yet too many football fans still wet themselves over transfer gossip and rumours in the papers. It is fan-girling in the extreme and very sad tbh. I'd like a complete news black-out (and if any club ca...

Re: Summer 2014 Transfer Window

We're OK for strikers as well with Pogrebnyak, Robson-Kanu, Blackman plus up and coming youngsters and we know we're ok for keepers and have a surfeit of midfielders with Karacan back for next season so we don't actually need anyone. It's the Reading way. Do you really think we will score enough go...

Summer 2014 Transfer Window

So I imagine it all comes down to whether a new owner comes in or not. Other teams are already doing good business. If we are not careful we will lose out on most of our potential signings. Who will we get? Who do we need? We need at least 1 quality striker in maybe 2. We probably need acentre back ...

Re: Buyout

SJM had better not screw the next sale up. He needs to sell all the club not a bit this time.

Hope we can sell the club so NA can rebuild.

Re: Buyout

Charlie Watts says that CS and AO are no longer on the rfc board. Presume that helps SJM to sell. The Burman meeting on Wednesday looks vital. Does SJM trust him? Have they resigned to make way for Burman??

Re: Buyout

I wonder why Burman want a private chat with SJM? Maybe owning 49% is a good starting point. He can buy the other buggers out as and when.

Re: Administration

See my thread on STAR re setting up a trust. Think 10k is way too much for me. Might manage 1k. Anyway, I am overseas but back in July. Could try and meet up. Get a group together. Together we might be able to do something.

Start a fans Trust in case of administration

If the current ownership situation is not resolved in the next couple of weeks or so we may enter administration. This is a fact. HMRC will probably go to court to seek a winding up order soon over late payment of tax. So is it about time that supporters formed a group where we could contribute fina...

Re: Administration

We will definitely go into administration by the end of the summer if a new owner is not found in the next few weeks. I give us a month max before HMRC go to the courts. We need one of these interested parties to buy us. We are in such a mess who cares who gets us. Otherwise we will be on -10 points...

Re: Buyout

One thing for sure if one of those bidders does not buy us hmrc will put in a winding up order. That is what they normally do.

Give us 3 weeks or so if rumours of bill owed are true.

Have to wait and see what happens. As we know talks may collapse again. It seems there are multiple groups interested again. Anyone will be better than AZ. The Championship spent a load last year.

Re: Players Released

My money is on One of Dan Lincoln or Stuart Moore Sean Long One of De'Juane Taylor-Crossdale and Germaine Ofori, possibly both. Maybe Hakeem Odoffin, but he's in a younger age category so might get more of a chance. k Which senior player will be ths first to go? I mean contracted. My bet is McCleary.

Re: Who will be our main promotion rivals next season?

Unless we get a new owner we will not keep any of the likes of Obita, Alf or McCleary. Even if we get in a new owner I cannot see us turning down a good offer from a low PL club for any of them. They will all want to move on with the possible exception of Obita who we may be able to negotiate a loan...

Re: SPACULATUON - Chris Eagles

If we don't have a new owner in place no one will come in except for loans. Half the first team squad will go. Hope we can keep players like Guthrie, Williams and a few others, a spine for the kids to be introduced around. Not bothered about ALF leaving to be honest. Agree with no new owner in mid t...

Re: Blessing in Disguise

We obviously have to - 1) find a new owner. 2) allow NA to move on the players he doesn't want And bring in a few he wants. Plus promote 3 or 4 academy players. 3) ensure we keep cat 1 status and build training ground. 4) we will lose 2 or 3 key players whether we like it or not. 5) run at promotion...
