Re: SPECULATION - Theo Walcott

After what Steve Coppell has done for Hunty - turning him from a Brentford reject to a £6.5M target for Sunderland - I expect Arsenal will pay us to play Theo rather than us have to pay him!!

Re: RUMOUR - Sidwell to return to Reading

bless him-sort of but it was hardly unpredicted by anyone he knew he would have to force his way past some of the best midfielders in the world to get regular footy there he backed his own ability, but it looks like he thought he was better than he actually was im not sure id want him back, would b...

Re: Anybody else preparing to opt out next season?

I find this thread a little sad really. Reading have tried to reach the top flight for 135 years and finally succeeded. Anyone who went last Saturday and watched the fantastic performance Reading put up against arguably the best multi million pound squad that has ever been assembled would surely not...

It seems some think that just because he is a Reading born lad he should get a chance? Erm NO.... He obviously isn't good enough. Ta'da LOL Cox - our best player tonight. But no doubt we will sell him to Swindon for 50p!!! Why? Who was the last person we drastically undersold? Or are you talking ou...

After Cox's showing last night on the right wing I would play him out there and leave Convey on the bench. I would also start Lita and leave Doyle on the bench. Re Cox I agree - he looked really good last night. Give him a chance. But as for Doyle he is a far better player than Lita and not so self...

There seems to be a view on here that unless a player costs 5 million plus he is no good. On the face of it the purchase of Doyle at £78K was not impressive and he is now worth a small fortune.

Lets give this guy a chance before writing him off. He may be another huge success.

After the abject first half the obvious changes to me were to bring on Cox for Long (who was having a shocker), Henry for Shorey or DLC and later Hunt for Convey. The final team would have been Fed, Roseior, Pearce, Ingi, Shorey or DLC, Hunt, Cisse, Harper, Henry, Lita and Cox. I honestly think that...

Yet again I am mystified. 1/ Yet again it was proved tonight that we cannot play 5-4-1 2/ At half time why take off one of the the only two recognised CB's and play a CM at centre back - admittedly Cisse did well BUT that meant we had several players out of opposition - Cisse, Shorey, Cox (RW rather...

Gosh, that Ivar dilemma’s a tough one, isn’t it? I hadn’t even considered him not playing, but of course it’d be a huge risk as he’s our only fit first-team CB. So, Pearce and Gunnar/Cisse up against Berbatov and Keane? Yikes! I guess that’s Gunnar man-marking Berbatov and DLC on Keane ...

I salute your optimism regarding the away wins at Boro and Newcastle. Take those out and you have 35 points and a real buttock clenching finish on the last day of the season or 36/7 points if we drew one or more of those games. The term is "winnable" - does not mean we have to win them al...

At the beginning of the season I graded each PL fixture as either a/ W winnable (a good chance of winning the game), b/ D draw (draw equals most likely result and unlikely to win) and c/ L losable (very unlikely we will get anything from the game). The decision for the result is based on past years ...

Because of the AC of N any deal will be right at the end of the transfer window. I think there will be a lot of transfer activity at the very last minute. Exactly what SC has been saying.

Pearce is a bloody good young player, I really hope he starts. All players make mistakes but I agree he'll probably be villified if he made one that lead to villa winning. Acutally, he'll probably be villafied. Just thought it need to be said properly. In fact if he gets roasted too often by the op...

TBM I dont see the hype with Shorey - i would quite happily let him go in exchange for Zamora


That is a great idea. Zamora is bound to be brilliant at left back.

Or maybe not! IMO we would miss Shorey even more than we missed Sidwell.

I have been told on good authority that it is Ronaldo and Lampard.

We have bid £5 and a bag of boiled sweets to Man U and offered Stack and Halls as full payment to Chelsea.

That will show Roy Keane how to negotiate.

Great news.

juanpablo kitson will have to be dropped will cause unrest in the squad otherwise


litas last chance?

or long to start?


Why on earth would we drop Kitson -- whatever he may or may not have done? Nothing to do with football.
