Banning your own non-season ticket holding supporters is a novel approach I grant you....

Another club facing potential exit from the FL.
Terrible goings on from their owners. Another Bury and hoping this is avoided as another decent club.

What a team they had back in the late 80's / early 90's, albeit on that horrible plastic pitch...

Former Charlton Chairman Matt Southall has agreed a deal to buy 25% of Rochdale.

Derby entering administration
Is it possible that Mitchell-Lawtonís return was linked - eg transfer fee instalment unpaid ? Or sell on cancelled ?

9 points apparently. Also they havenít published their most recent accounts so could be in line for a few more.

What with Derby getting -21 there may only be 1 relegation spot up for grabs.

If Reading go down we just HAVE to go up!

A 7-0 thumping last night won't exactly help their cause.  Got a mate been a season ticket holder there since I first met him in 1974.
Gotta feel for them,  could have been us.

Without doubt. We are playing them away the end of next month.
Sad to see a decent club going backwards as we rightly know how it feels.
Just hope they pull through.

It's 8 years since Reading were last in the Premier League and that parachute money has long since past. I think the stories about Reading, Sheff Weds, Derby (and many more which are going to come to light) show just what level of financial risk clubs are playing with to get into the top division, where the income then becomes astronomical. It does make you wonder just how many clubs in the Championship are playing within their means. I imagine it's a minority.

From memory I think it was just Barnsley with the odd club having a big transfer.  Kieran Maguire has done loads of analysis on it.

It was Rotherham not Barnsley.   This is from a quick google - plenty of detail elsewhere.

Reading paid over twice their turnover on player wages - bonkers!

Yeah. That Tiger fella has always just been the front man for shadowy backers. The piss stains are supposedly being taken over by some billionaires. Letís hope itís the Bristol Rovers variety.
