Old Man Andrews Paunović out of quarantine today, hopefully we hear from him and get an idea on any potential incomings.


Surely we get that sort of info from Eddie, depending on what Kia has lined up...

Eddie is the unofficial mouthpiece of the management yes.

Plenty of time on his hands now he’s no longer doing the coaching.

Old Man Andrews Why do we need to hear anything from the new manager? I would much rather he was working with the players than talking to a bunch of idiotic supporters.

That was when he first took over, thicko. He has been at the club enough time now to give us his views on the squad and aims going forward.

Idiot.

I remember the good old days when OMA was barely tolerable and a bit thick, with the exceptionally rare good post.

That was a good 5 days.

Oh well, if he needs to be an obnoxious troll to get through life I guess we should feel sorry for him

Ian, you don't support the team anymore, you're done with it. Stay off the team board, nobody likes you.

That and the fact you aren't clever enough to read my reply to him and realise I am right. Get a girlfriend or a driving licence, do something with what you have left of your life.

I think that was common knowledge, same with the ground.
But technically the club don’t still own either. Dai Yongge owns both but both now sit outside the RFC web of companies. Effectively there is still a strong link and it’s certainly better than if we had sold either to a totally separate entity.
I’m not sure it was a ‘ruse’ , that suggests something sneaky or underhand when they were both done openly. There is nothing unusual in a club not owning it’s own ground. There are Premiership clubs who don’t own there ground and I believe in Europe it’s actually very common for clubs to not own their ground.

yes, you're correct. My phrasing could have been better. What I meant is that the ground is still under the control of the owner, not some third party property developer for example. So, if he decides to sell the club and a new owner wants the ground as well as part of the transaction then it is totally within Mr Dai's control to make that happen.

In terms of ruse, what I was saying is that it was only done because the FFP rules made us take those actions. In reality, everyone knows it is a way to get around the rules that are set in stone. Any good lawyer and advisor will be telling Mr Dai how to bend but not break the rules and, at the moment, the sale of the stadium (let's not forget he's done it twice now, firstly for £27m and then a second go in last season's accounts for a further £11m iirc). I know the EFL was fine with the original transaction, but the second one was one of the reasons we had a soft transfer embargo last summer I believe, until the EFL ratified the transaction.


At the risk of asking a very stupid question, how did he mange to sell the stadium twice?

that's why the EFL needed to review it and we seemingly got drawn back into "Reading sold their stadium" debate alongside Derby and Sheff Weds. Sold it too cheaply first time; probably got a new valuation saying it was worth more. But not 100% sure

Not sure how this affects the whelm:

We are pleased to confirm that Quinton Fortune and Nuno Gomes have both put pen to paper to sign coaching contracts with the Royals.

The duo arrive as part of our new manager’s first team staff and joined Veljko Paunović on the training pitch for the first time this morning.

I am suddenly overwhelmed!

Seriously whatever we feel about the way the club has handled things regarding Bowen it is not the new manager or coach's fault so I wish them all the best for the season ahead. A good win at derby will make us all feel better .

Certainly true.

Be interesting to see what happens to Eddie N and JoS and whether they're retained or quietly shoved out without any real thanks after their replacements have already been brought in.

AthleticoSpizz Gilksey?

He's not first team, he runs the Academy
I thought it had already been announced that Niedzwicki would be leaving, not surprising seeing he was a Bowen man. O'Shea is a club man, hard to see why he would go. Seems very impressive

Only saw someone referencing twitter rumours on here for EN

There's absolutely nothing on the OS about him leaving.

I see they've managed the news feed in such a way to make it look like they announced Bowen was going before they announced the new guy though.

Interview with old Velcro up on the youtubes.

Not exactly Jose Gomes in the silky communication stakes, but came across as genuinely quite excited at being at such an old club, which is sweet. Enthusiastic about the town and job. Some of the usual cliches as you'd expect.

Seems a bit quiet and understated for a leader. Very laid back communication style. Someone I'd probably enjoy having a quiet pint with.

So, you’re warming to him and aren’t quite so “done” then?

Eddie N had decided to go at least a few days ago, he reluctantly took charge on Saturday. O'Shea is staying I believe, which is good news IMO.

Silky communication from Gomes :lol: he waffled and stumbled his way through interviews. Don’t know how he communicated concisely with players.

Like you say usual cliches, but in my opinion seems focussed on the task in hand and getting to grips with the squad, rather than setting unrealistic expectations that we’ve heard from other managers from recent times.

I think we’ve got a good little coaching set up here.
