Didn't someone say Reading are operating under a soft transfer embargo? Can't be very soft given they just spent reported £8m...

Reading were as of June/July operating under a soft transfer embargo. So the EFL had to sign off any incoming transfers. What has changed this month so they can now shell out over £15 Million, I have no idea.

I do know that a Premier League club is hovering around Danny Loader so maybe a deal for him has been agreed and they are spending that money.

They’re not at all. Their dealings are awful. 

Pay big fees and rarely get a return. Big wages on players 30+. Probably the worst in the league.

Rooney is a PR stunt. 

All while they’ve still got Richard Keogh at CB 

Wonder if he has minimum play time contracted, 32 red will want him on the pitch as much as possible, even if not contactual there will be pressure from above to play him. 

 

His is goals in the MLS seem to have been FK and PKs mostly, not convinced hes hugely mobile anymore. 

 

Could be a hindrance for them.

He hasn't been hugely mobile for about six years

I think we have to get a RW in today or it becomes a very bad window. To go through a whole summer on the face of it buying 3 League 1 players and not improve all the areas we need to would be a shocker. We’ve spent roughly £3m and sold more than that in a summer window, says it all about our situation...

I think 2 as well. One this afternoon and then one just snuck in before the deadline.

We desperately need that RW. Imagine going through the season with Marvin Johnson as your first choice.

Jacob Murphy off to Sheff Wed 

I'm pretty sure this is because Newcastle owe them one for the whole Steve Bruce saga.

I think we will get 2 in. Secretly hoping we are surprised and sneak in a 3rd but also wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with 0/1.

I dont think I would go as far as saying it would be a very bad window... selling Fry and Britt then not replacing on transfer deadline day is a very bad window...... Yes really need a RW for us all to be happy but with Coulson, Fletcher, Browne, Tav (ish) and Johnson it wouldn't make it absolutely shocking.

Interesting to see that Woodgate highlighted Bola, Browne and Dijksteel in the presentation he did at his interview. Wonder who else was on there..

    • Businesses should be means tested much like people are for social welfare. There is no way bajillionaires like Branson should get away with furloughing staff, neither should businesses with 100's of millions of pounds income per year. 
    • Liverpool have reversed the decision now. Rightly so, in my opinion. 
    • I don’t think it’s down to the working class nature of football, boxers don’t get the same flack, I think it’s because clubs are very often the heart of a community. I remember chatting to a woman I met a few years ago who wouldn’t let her kids watch football because footballers were payed an obscene amount of money. I asked her if she allowed her kids to watch Hollywood movies, of course, she said!  
    • Wherever you stand on it... Footballers do always seem to be fair game when it comes to having a pop at the rich. Is it the working class nature of football? I've always wondered.  Where are the calls for musicians, actors, or even athletes from other well-paid sports to give up their earnings for the less fortunate? Or the bankers and CEOs who squirrel millions away into offshore accounts, taking from society and never giving back? At least footballers bring a bit of joy and entertainment to millions of people a couple of times a week. 
    • Yep, its a real sob story.  But in normal life, imagine if you could live comfortably on 10% of your takehome after buying your house and car. You would only have day to day expenses, holidays, etc. You take the rest of your salary and put it in one of those long term savings accounts (or whatever) that you cannot touch for 2 years. Then your salary is reduced and that 10% is no longer enough to cover your day to day. Regardless of how much actual money that is, when you try to force people to change their living circumstances you will always have push-back.  Now of course nobody earning decent money should be in that situation. It is recommended to split your savings, some in short term (easily retrieved), some in medium term (normally a wait period to retrieve) and some in long term (not normally retrievable) eg Property and pension.  On one hand it does highlight that these are just people, like all of us. On the other hand, they are fabulously wealthy and a target for those less well off who are revered when times are good and reviled when times are bad.  I don't blame the players for earning what they do, you make hay while the sun shines and we would all probably try to earn the same if circumstances were different. The clubs though are a different story and should be looking after the non mega-rich employees.
