The trouble is that most other clubs' messageboards appear to have at least as many belmonts as we do. I thought that the Everton one might have some useful insight, bearing in mind their brief history with Anton Z, but it very quickly degenerated into abusing their chairman...

No, his sister posts on all the other forums but their views are virtually identical except for about 5 minutes every day when his is the bed and hers is the ceiling.

Well good luck with it. Just don't expect other supporters to be particularly gracious when you need bailing out 5 years down the line.

Finch
From Despair To Where?
muddyfeet Was just doing this, most forums seem to be in disbelief why they chose us



I think one of the posts on the origanal article on the Daily Mail website sums it up nicely. Basically a well run club with a well established and strong management structure, huge potential, next to no debts and a physical infrastructure that requires no upgrading. As i saw an Everton fan state, why buy a club for £40m knowing that you will then have to find another £60m to build a new stadium


Can you please tell what HUGE potential Reading has?

You got to the Premier League, then got relegated and attendances have since dropped. Illustrated by the away fans' charts, are you telling me you've got huge potential to get back into the Premier League, to compete in the Premier League? Or huge potential like Nicky Hammond said; being as big as Arsenal?

You're a nothing club going no where other than yo-yoing at best. No Russian multi millionaire is going to change that. He's not even that rich, let alone being rich enough to drastically change the fortunes of a yo-yo club. As with any investor, he'll look for a return. He's not going to risk his own money just for fun. At worst, you'll spend wrecklessly and get into financial trouble, possibly getting relegated. At best, you'll be a Bolton staying in the Premier League. Big oxf*rd deal.

Finch got out at the right time. RFC is going no where and never will.


Careful what you're saying, I know where you live

The assumption (by other fans) appears to be that these owners will be the lastest in a line of foreign owners who'll spend unsustainable fortunes and leave the club in a total mess, and probably also that our fans are giddy with excitement of a surge up the leagues.

The truth is that few fans actually seem to thinking this is brilliant. There's no will to see us become like Leicester. The most common response seems to be one of having to wait and see.

No Fixed Abode TBF - they're only saying what you lot would say if this was another team in The Championship.


It's unlikely we'd be saying our average away attendence was 100 higher than another team in the Championship. Impossible in fact.

Get with reality Kes
