There's gonna be a giant bouncy castle that kids can play on for £1 with all proceeds going straight in to the transfer kitty.

The big question as it has always been is whether there will be a spoons.

It benefits in that it was the sweetener hat enticed new owners in to save the team from administration. The benefit has been had.

I don't think it will benefit the team at all, but I don't really care about that - at least there's some improvement in that area of town and around the ground. So as fans and Reading residents (or ex-residents), at least the town is developing in the right way.

Are you one of those gimboids who are anti investment in REP as it has no direct benefit to the team?

The club did a survey and found out that folks are more likely to come to games if they can have a cheeky nandos beforehand.

Ok so there was I hoping to get some sort of sensible answer instead I get abuse from fellow Reading supporters who seem to think the height of intelligence is bouncy castles. Maybe I'm wrong to think that it's Ok for the Tia's who came to our rescue when needed to make some money but wrong to asset strip the club. After all as far as I know we owned the land so maybe we should see some of the profit benefit the club
Sensible answers only please. Maybe the morons amongst you can have a day off.

Maybe the moron who posts a question can look at the other threads before posting in the wrong forum, and maybe read the responses the moron has received pointing him to the relevant thread.

Tbf a massive Nandos and a spoons would go down an absolute treat. They'd make a killing especially with the train station meaning no drink driving issues - train back into town to carry on the session. In fact it would probably tempt me to get a season ticket once more.

It feels like you may have already formed a fairly firm opinion.

This is definitely true. Is that actually in the plans, can't say I've paid huge notice to them

If you read the replies instead of throwing your toys out of the Prem you might have found your answer.
We did own the land, we sold it (hence have made a profit).
The club retained a part ownership in the development which would obviously have meant a share of profits.
If theclub owners have sold that interest then we won't make any further direct profit.
It's all being discussed at length many times but feel free to ask for it to be debated again . And obviously getting stroppy if the answers you get aren't the ones you wanted...
