- Tue, 21 Sep 2021 15:30:08 +0000: Reading in line for points deduction over breach of EFL financial rules - Reading | The Guardian
- Championship club face losing six to nine points
- Reading were placed under transfer embargo in summer
Reading are set to be deducted between six and nine points by the English Football League for breaching financial rules. The Championship club are under embargo for breaching profit and sustainability regulations and are in talks over agreeing a sanction that could drop them into the relegation zone. Crisis-hit Derby County are also in line to receive a points penalty for financial breaches.
The embargo placed on Reading in the summer limited them to free transfers and loans, with Danny Drinkwater arriving from Chelsea last month. Profit and sustainability rules permit a maximum £39m loss across three seasons. Reading’s reported £41m wage bill in 2018-19 equated to 194% of turnover. Continue reading...
- Sat, 28 Aug 2021 18:32:00 +0000: Championship roundup: Fulham dominate Stoke; QPR rise to third - Reading | The Guardian
- Marco Silva says leaders can still improve after 3-0 win
- Lyndon Dykes inspires QPR; West Brom leave it late
Marco Silva said there is more to come from Fulham after they swept aside Stoke to maintain their unbeaten start to the Championship season. A comfortable 3-0 victory, with goals from Harry Wilson, Bobby Decordova-Reid and Aleksandar Mitrovic, left the manager believing the margin of victory should have been even greater.
“It was a very good performance from the first minute until the last,” he said. “We should have scored more goals, 1-0 was not enough from the first half with the chances we created. We should be more clinical.” Continue reading...
- Fri, 13 Aug 2021 10:56:35 +0000: Going to my first Swansea match in 16 months renewed my appetite for football | Elis James - Reading | The Guardian
Ironic cheers mocking the opposition and losing control of all senses for goal celebrations returned effortlessly at the stadium
There was a point during the first lockdown, when I’d daydream about becoming a “yes man”. I’d think to myself: “I got too sucked into the rat race, man. If this thing has taught me anything, it’s that life is about experiences. I’ve spent too much time on my phone. As soon as I’m able to I’ll say yes to that bungee jump. I’ll say yes to that National Trust dry-stone walling course. Life is lived on the margins so I’ll take up kickboxing and enter a dialogue with pain.”
As you can imagine, this nettle‑grasping lasted about 30 seconds into restrictions being lifted (realistically, why would I want to learn a skill that’s mainly relevant in the Peak District or get my head kicked off my body?), but the one thing I have approached with renewed vigour is football.

- Sun, 25 Apr 2021 13:02:03 +0000: Swansea earn draw at Reading to seal place in Championship play-offs - Reading | The Guardian
Swansea fought back from a goal down to draw 2-2 at Reading, a result that confirms the four teams who will contest the Championship play-offs.
Second-half goals from Jamal Lowe and André Ayew put Swansea in front after Yakou Méïté’s header gave the hosts a half-time lead. The defender Tomás Esteves grabbed a fine injury-time equaliser for Reading, but it was not enough to keep alive their hopes of a top-six finish. Continue reading...

- Manager angry after ‘clear’ penalty turned down in 2-1 loss
- Reading’s play-off hopes stall in draw with Cardiff
Wayne Rooney slammed “unacceptable” refereeing after his Derby side suffered a damaging 2-1 defeat at Blackburn.
Tom Lawrence’s second goal of the season gave Derby a lead they looked set to build on until Sam Gallagher’s free header levelled before the break. Harvey Elliott then marked his 50th senior appearance by firing in the winner midway through the second half to deal a potentially devastating blow to the Rams, who remain just above the drop zone, four points ahead of Rotherham having played three games more.

Newly promoted Reading have been scouting out many possible additions to their squad for next season with manager Brian McDermott having a large number of possible targets he wishes to bring to the Madjeski for the season kick off in August. The Royals manager has stated he would like to reinforce in all departments for next season with a mixture of new and experienced players.
Reading have just offered a contract to up and coming high flying goal keeper Stuart Taylor after the player
enjoyed a successful trial spell at the club in recent weeks. The Royals have been looking for a long term replacement in the goal keeping department for some time and look set to make Taylor the man to do the job as long as the club and the player can agree personal terms before the season kicks off.
Goal keeper Mikkel Anderson looks like he will be heading in the other direction to Portsmouth this summer after the club decided they wished to sign Taylor to replace him and Pompey manager Appleton is extremely keen on the young goal keeper. The southern club have offered to take the player on loan for the season but Reading seem coy on this idea as they would much prefer to dispense with his services on a permanent deal but as of yet both clubs are unable to reach an agreement on the situation so the drama continues.
Young Watford starlet Adrian Mariappa is the first signing of the summer for the Royals as he has just arrived on a three year deal from the London club. The talented Jamaican international central defender is a great addition to the Royals squad and McDermott believes the player will offer them a new dimension in the heart of their defence for next season.
Another player who looks all set to arrive at the Madjeski this summer is Nottingham Forest full back Chris Gunter who has been a long term target of the club for some time. The Welsh international has been out of favour at Forest for the better part of last season and now is keen and excited to the prospect of life in the premier league and the deal looks all set to go through within the next couple of weeks as long as the player agrees personal terms and passes the clubs medical.
In recent weeks there has been growing speculation that the Royals have been enquiring about gaining the services of Jermain Defoe from Tottenham after the striker endured a bit part season last year for his home club. Defoes chances in the first team were extremely limited and now the striker may look elsewhere to ply his trade if talks with the club break down this summer which will leave the door right open for the Royals to bring the player to the Madjeski.
