Upson is the name that always comes to mind when I think of our loan signings. Bloke was like a Rolls Royce playing as a centre half.

He was brilliant. If only Madejski had paid the extra 1.5k a week he wanted I'm convinced we would have gone up that year

sounds like the Baker deal will happen.

Either a stroke of genius or a complete waste of time

My bet is we'll end up with something like Baker Rino and Swift/Ejaria in that midfield, whilst Bacuna or Kelly will be loaned off and Eza sent back

True, but if that had happened, we probably wouldn't have had the 05-06 team, etc.

leon Can he tackle?

I only care about that.


Nope. More of an attacking midfielder, a bit like Swift if he could run.


FFS.


Told you, JG sees attack and creativity and attack as the best form of defence. In his 6 months at Ave he apparently never addressed their defensive frailties so I reckon we should hardly be surprised if we see the squad even more overloaded by supposedly creative midfield options. On the upside it might mean we get some strikers that are actually suitable for the system he wants to play. On the downside Reading will have to outscore everyone every week.

Exciting times :?

'Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa said on Wednesday that he had wanted Baker to stay beyond his loan deal and into next season, but admitted the player had legitimate expectations to play more than he had.
Baker is one of a number of loan deals the Royals are targeting this month as they bolster their squad for new manager Jose Gomes, and they recently secured Liverpool midfielder Ovie Ejaria until the end of the campaign.'

Well apparently people want to see goals scored and entertaining football. Not wins. That's what was being said during Stam's season. So, this will be the proof of it - will we be happier losing 4-3 than scraping 1-0?

Full debut was away to Cambridge in the League Cup - 3-1 defeat :D

In which a certain Mr Kitson scored.

Who was the defender loaned to us around 93/94ish by Millwall and he broke his leg but carried on playing?

Scratching my head with this. We now have Swift, Aluko, Lewis-Baker and Ejaria all competing for one spot. I just dont get this at all. Please no more midfielders.
