Personally I hope that the three amigos all re-sign. I tend to agree that Karacan is being a little unrealistic if he wants two years. The bottom line is will he get two or more years elsewhere at Championship level or above? I would say probably not with his injury record and so I think he will end up staying.

Pearce had a good look round elsewhere two years ago and no one wanted him. I would not be surprised if it is the same this time round and so he might end up staying too.

The one we are most at risk of losing is Fed. If a PL team offers him the chance to be first choice (Bournemouth/Southampton) I am sure he will go. But if he is not guaranteed to play he could spend the next few season sitting on the bench - which would be a waste of his career (just look at McCarthy at QPR - I think he got two games this season). Surely better to be first choice here and try to get us back to the PL. Then he will get another crack at the big time.

Build the team around Obita, Mcleary and Mackie (if we can get a contract going for him). Id like to see Pearce and Karacan stay because they have good recent Reading history, and keep hold of anybody under-21. The rest are, in my eyes, dispensible.

As for the rebuild.
Two strikers.
Preference for our U-21s over Chelsea's.

Apart from that, he can do what he likes.

Wikipedia On 25 July 2013, Mackie signed a three-year contract with Nottingham Forest for a reported fee of around £1 million.
£1m over 3 years works out at £6,410 per week, which doesn't sound unreasonable for this level.

After last weeks performance, I wouldnt mind Myhill has a Federici replacement if he doesn't resign. Clarkey knows him aswell obviously.

lol at copy + pasting the getreading out of contract list and passing it off as your own knowledge. I suppose they've nicked enough rumours off this site in the past they deserve having a bit of info taken off them.

Probably, my mistake, I read it as he signed on a free and that was the the cost of the contract. :oops:

Liam Rosenoir 30
Jon Flanagan 22
Ross Wallace 29
Owen Garvan 27
Bobby Zamora 33
James Wilson 19
That's my shopping list Steve Clarke make it happen, reckon we could get all 6 of them for under 60k per week its a lonely world with no club at the end of the season. I would love to see Rosenoir in a reading shirt again to a top left back a position were lacking and if we keep Kelly, a selection of full backs with Gunter, Rosenoir, Kelly and Obita to choose from is very strong a good mix of youth and experience

Yacob would be a very good signing from WBA, Mulumbu even more so but doubt he would come here and not convinced his contact is up 2015- both would add a class improvement in midfield. Myhill isn't a bad shout if Feds goes as is Tremmel from Swansea. If we can get rid of Ferdinand, Delany or Hangeland would be good experienced CB options without recent injury problems. Not much id be that bothered with re attacking options.

Apparently Westwood at Cov has had a lot of scouts watching him this season. Wouldn't be surprised if we went in for him if Feds goes. Wouldn't cost more than 250k with coventrys financial situation
