Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Meyler would have been a great signing but sadly his now well documented mental illness at the time he joined us meant we never got to see the real him and lead to his early retirement. He took a lot of unwarranted stick on social media too which can’t have helped him. You wonder why these professi...

Re: Sign Esteves and Semedo?

Stranded
tidus_mi2 I feel if we're going back in for Semedo that we have player sales planned.


Wouldn't be massively upset with Laurent being sold for a decent fee with Semedo coming in to take that spot.


I would.

Re: Rumour - Virgil Misidjan

From Despair To Where? Hmm. 58 day suspended sentence for beating up a 68 year old man in a parking lot?


Did he steal his car park space?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (a)

Didn’t watch as I want to enjoy my life and if they don’t care why should I, but in the risk of sounding all Ian Royal and making an il-informed opinion, we’re we as bad as the stats suggested?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (a)

Pepe the Horseman Anyone gonna bother watching this?


No, it’s the girlfriend’s birthday so will be doing something.

Didn’t watch the Swansea game on Sunday as I flew down to Newquay. It’s quite nice not having your weekend ruined by watching Reading.

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

Yeah I don’t really see the grounds for optimism for next season. We will almost certainly have a worse squad. That’s the thing which annoys me most about this season. If it was up or bust then why hamper our own chances with an overly cautious approach in games. We haven't really been thrashed thi...

Re: Where do we go from here 21/22 season?

I think we have to expect the summer transfer window to be very difficult for us with FFP. We'll be losing some good players and I think it's inevitable Olise will be sold. I just hope we get £10m or more for him even though he's worth double that in my view. We probably need 7 signings if Aluko, B...

Re: Pauno In! Appreciation Thread

Unless we are challenging for top 6 by Christmas he will be gone. It honestly wouldn’t surprise me if he went this summer. Doubt the owners will have been impressed but who knows. I don’t think we will be challenging next season and therefore you’d make the case in that instance it would be smarter ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

So the thing that comes to mind here, is that with previous successful Reading teams, you know the most likely XI, you know the shape, and you know the pattern of play for how the side will score. WIth Pauno, we know the XI, we know the shape, but I genuinely don't know the plan for scoring other t...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

Just 8 points from our last 8 games. Says it all. I keep hearing how much we have improved under Pauno. I think not. He has done enough to stay on next season. Not sure Dai will see it that way. Could be a messy summer Thing is, even when we were winning we weren't playing particularly good footbal...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

Barnsley had 21 shots and 7 on target. Compare to our “12 and 1”. None of which were even remotely testing. Ismael (and Dike) have transformed Barnsley beyond all recognition. Whatever we had, they've got it now and fair play to them. This team has regressed right back to where it was; toothless, l...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

There never was any chance of a win as Luton begins with “L” and Reading have now only won 4 from the last 43 midweek away trips since 2014 and all 4 wins were at teams beginning with “B”. Least we’ll all know when the fixture list for next season appears which midweek games (if any) will be worth ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a)

It’s strange. Under normal circumstances with our position, and the context of our season you’d be on the edge of your seat hoping for a goal - plenty of excitement.

Weird watching full well we probably won’t even have a shot, and will more than likely concede too.
