Why has the Reading FC twitter feed kept so quiet today? Normally very active in retweeting annoying fans.

No, it's not a weaker argument at all. Who cares how many players were signed? Two were a kid from Ireland who will probably never play for us, and a keeper we don't need.

Other teams signed players earlier in the summer, just like we did. Pog, Guthrie, McCleary and Gunter? Not entirely different to Rodriguez, Clyne and Davis. Comparable.

If £5m and a couple of free transfers is the extent of our ambition, then we'll end up back where this club seems to 'belong'.

Did you guys see BM on Sky last night? He explained how we conduct business.

Worth your while catching it.

Made me proud to have Reading as my 2nd team.

He knew we were talking to Palace a few weeks ago and today, and we were, if a few of the papers are right, and a number of journos too. So I can't see why you're pointing the finger at anyone?

What about your own reliability? What happened with Shane Long?

i love this club as much as life itself, but sometimes it is a headache to support this club. were watching deadline day go on and were not even going in for anyone, even though there are plenty of class players that would fit into our squad well on the cheap. what it really comes down to instead of us moaning about us not signing players and being cheap is that we must trust mcdermott to know that were not going to need anyone else to survive. (at least not till January). get behind your royals and believe that we can do anything, just like during that run last year that saw us lift the championship trophy! this is the most important year in premier league history to stay up because of that tv money deal and i believe we can do it as long as we have BM as our manager!

Avon Royal Oh, and if we don't strengthen in the next hour then this time next year we'll be watching our best players leave in the window, not wondering who will come in........


Yeah, that's the saddest part, watching all the best players go and all the dead wood stay.

But you guys were saying the same stuff last year. How did we get promoted?

Have we strengthened since last season?

Maybe we should just resurrect the old threads as we all just say the same things every fcuking year don't we?

You forgot Mariappa and Shorey.

Saints have signed 5 senior players, we've signed 7..

And I can assure you the money spent in securing our 'few free transfers' was very ambitious indeed.

paultheroyal Dont worry - you will hear the quote soon that having Kebe and Roberts back into the squad injury free will be like a new signing!


Kebe hasn't been fit for 2 seasons and out for 4 months, don't expect too much from him again

ManchesterRoyals And to think we could have got someone like Clint Dempsey for a mere £6M...but he is off to the Spurs. Meanwhile the clock continues to tick...


Has he gone to spurs?

Are we REALLY all moaning about our transfer dealings?! I think we've done some great business.

I am really happy with the squad personally. We have a tight 'group' as BM would say. Too many in upsets the apple cart. All we need to do is sort out the shitty mistakes at the back which we will do I'm sure & we'll be ok. This team has goals.

Who'd have thought we'd win the league last year? You could argue that was more about determination than skill - we practically stole that league title. No reason why we can't do something similar again to stay up. These players are hungry.

Libertine I wouldn't be as concerned if the teams I considered to be in a very similar position to us hadn't greatly improved their squads.


Spot on.

We greatly improved ours a month ago. Southampton have waited until the last day. So be it.

We've still added more players to our squad than they have, and we finished aboved them last season, yet you won't find Saints fans whining tonight.

People talk about a 'statement of intent', but how often do they actually end up being beneficial. Chelsea tried to do it with Torres, Liverpool appeased their fans by spunking a load of money on Carroll etc.

We do smart thought-out business, not reactionary business.


According to sky both ourselves and Soton have signed 8 ...and West Ham 9
