Re: Rumour: Joe Piggott

That's a very good return for a striker in a struggling side. As for, "more strikers?" We need to reduce the wage bill, and the likes of Bodvarsson and Baldock might well be two that have to go, or, even though it'll hurt, we may have to lose a Meite... Needs must at the moment, so whoever...

Speculation: Keeper Watch

So, Lewis Ward departs for Exeter City and leaves us even lighter in goal.

We must have something lined up. The thought of Walker back in goal makes me feel physically sick!

Re: Oliveira traing with Reading

Portuguese article on Twitter this morning suggesting he is available on a free as Norwich want his bow £30k a week wages off their books. Suggestions he could go to China. Surely though if he does have this good relationship with Jose, and he’s still here training long after his loan expired, that ...

Re: Financial Fair Play

So we heard last week that we promised the EFL we will sell players before the end of the month. I didn’t realise the significance of the end of the month, but some fans seem to think that means a refresh of FFP for the new season. Is that true? And if it is, and if we aren’t able to sell anyone or ...

Re: Rumour - Nicky Hammond to Celtic

Nick will know better than most that Reading are in a state at the moment, so I’m sure the likes of Moore, Swift, perhaps even a Bodvarsson could all be on his watch list. Christ, even Liam “watch your wives” Kelly would do well at the level. I don’t really care who we sell this summer. I’d rather h...

Re: Mohamed Diaby

Is he rated? Or are we just looking at the next Kalifa Cisse?

Courtney Friday says he’s checked in with his “sources” and there is substance to this one.

Re: Financial Fair Play

According to our fitness coach (for some unknown reason he decided to respond to a fan account on Twitter called Reading FC Bible) he said if we sell a player for £5m we can spend £5m on a new player(s). The tweet was pulled an hour or so later after some fans advised it could get the coach in troub...

Re: League Cup 1st Round

Give us O*ford at home, please. We are long overdue a local derby, against that scummy club. I don't really feel anything towards Oxford or Swindon tbh. We've been above them for so many years that some of our supporters will have never seen us play them. True. I have lasting memories of our last t...

Re: Financial Fair Play

I’m fully expecting the club to take another hard line, as we did in January, to get players out. Gourlay has caused long lasting damage to this club, and needs must. The likes of Gunter, perhaps McCleary, need to move on. Big earners and neither required or as useful to us as they once were. Kelly ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Ericsson have recently returned to Reading (Thames Tower) having off-shored their telecoms teams to Bangalore, India in 2014. SSE also recently moved their head office to Reading, by the Forbury. These would be non offensive sponsors, however unlikely they might be. Knowing us it’ll be Plumb and Plu...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Where are the one or two usual reliables who hear something about the home/away kits? It’s bad enough this is a very quiet summer so far, but it seems HNA is following suit.

Horsham Royal I very much trout he'll end up here.


I can see Arsenal loaning him out to a team in Franz.


Can you? He said himself he’s fed up of loans and wants to either get a chance at Arsenal, or he wants to move on permanently.

Re: Next Seasons Kit

so we are big and important enough to change our kits every season now then? Whatever happened to that old two-season assurance Crikey, we haven’t followed that for over a decade and some. Simpler times I guess, Wallsy. I agree though that it’s a rip off. Today it’s all about making money, and not ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Anticipation doesn’t really build though. The club just lose a month or more of warm weather where kids would be bagging their parents for the new kits. I’d also suggest we ended the season with a real feel-good factor around the place again. What a great time to release the kits, as others do. Earl...
