Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I've been slagging off China's figures but HUBEI's (Includes Wuhan) figures are not so outlying Population 58,500,00 Cases = 67,801 (1,159 per million, a little less than Spain) Deaths = 3,169 (54 per million, 3rd highest, Spain in 2nd is 93 pm) Still serious 1,020.

Re: Best centre back pairing

Miazga is the best of the lot and also seems to be the most commanding. I think McIntyre is probably the one best suited to pairing him. He’s left footed, which brings a bit of balance, reasonably quick, and just oozes class on the ball. Moore is obviously talented but hasn’t really shown it this s...

Re: End of Season Club Dinner

Love the "just" £90 for a 3 course meal and probably a cheap glass of wine that would normally cost no more than £30 in total. So having paid to watch the game you are then paying a charge of around £60 for the privilege of meeting players who we have paid this season for their work. Not ...

Re: January Transfer Window

Re: Bowen Out.

I feel the Summer transfer window will be incredibly important, we have a team that with the right additions could become a promotion chasing club I reckon. I've seen many false dawns - and tbh it's seasons where I'm expecting nothing we've done quite well. Bu, yes, therre are glimmers of possibili...

Re: Bowen Out.

Its not a case of having sympathy or shedding tears. Its simply a) making usable players unusable (esp Baldock who we really could have used early doors), and b) upsetting the squad. Obviously b) is more difficult to make judgement on, but it certainly wouldn't have helped having 2 popular players ...

Re: January Transfer Window

Looking back you could tell it was going to be shocking transfer wise in 2017 as in January Reading signed Adrian Popa and loaned Zat Knight, Reece Oxford and Jordon Mutch, but they did get Lewis Grabban on loan and then promptly failed to play him as a forward. Net result - very poor return. The s...

Re: Leeds (A) Saturday February 22nd

They are not in the Premier League yet...... :roll: I just suggested what I expected the price to be. But seriously though, if there is a £30 cap in the premier league, I just don't understand how there isn't a Championship cap in place. Wasn't it argued that the TV rights in the Premier League mak...

Re: Player of the season so far...

Right now, I think I'd give it to Méïté, but think a number of players (including Rafael and Morrison) are in with a shout. Let's see how the next 10 games pan out.

It's almost like Citeh have got more resources available to cover such things than we do. No excuse. If the club had any sense they would be creative.

If it's good enough for Michael Hector it's good enough for Andre Burley. What? Hector had a few months in the LOI, with Dundalk when he was 18. Would have been longer but he injured his knee and was out for a while. Both Burley and Odimayo played the full 90 in Waterford's opening game of the seas...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ayub Timbe.

How do you pronounce Timbe? Timber or Timbay? Or Timbee? I'm guessing it will be Timb-eh, but add the Reading accent to it and we'll be saying Timbay. In fact we won't be saying it at all as his name is Masika. There's a link on the wikipedia page here to listen to the pronunciation. sounds like Ti...
