Entirely predictable. Threw a load of money at it that they didn't have. Failed. Now they're fcked. Everything they get is entirely deserved.
Why should they get special treatment.? Their manager seems to have a weird view of things!
“If something is going to happen in the future, that should be considered and we should be given the opportunity to compete and be given a fair chance to be promotion contenders," - quote from Reading manager.
They were not too bothered about fairness by racking up such a colossal loss. Zero sympathy. Casino football..
Thats the odd thing, everyone knows the score re.FFP so they've had their chance to stick to it
Too many badly run clubs who have been at it for years will try and get out of it by bringing up a year of covid.
"...working to reduce the budget due to a delicate financial situation"
you mean they've overspent for 3 years, now they're skint?
So wants to be given leeway for a situation that every clubs been hit with and then tries to say it’s not fair that other teams have parachute payments.
“If we cannot use our resources, how is that fair? How is it fair against teams with parachute payments?”
I hope they get the book thrown at them. It’s the only way clubs will actually self govern.
So if I’ve read Mr Paunovic’s quote correctly he is asking for special dispensation for Reading FC because they cheated the FFP for years but this last year tried not to cheat as much and because the reduced level of cheating almost got them into the play offs the rules should be changed.
WTAF - all that is wrong in football quoted in one interview.
Eff em. Give em the 12 points that the rules state and then go after every other club who flout the rules!!
it weren't us gove ... honest, hit em and hit em hard
Roll the dice, take your chance.
Didn't work out, sucks to be Reading.
What??! Don't tell me that oily little ****'s involved in the EFL as well!
It'll be our fault as usual
I'd love to know what a "delicate financial situation" means....
They were always a third division club when I was growing up in the 80's and early 90's averaging around 5k fans. They're just a dull nothing club that had a few decent years because of that auto trader bloke.
If only he had read this forum on August 5th last year. The situation was debated with some clarity.
It was quite clear they were in trouble then, they needed to make £12m profit to meet FFP rules. Unfortunately they lost £40m.
Absolutely no sympathy for them. This year was always going to be a decisive one for them if they didn’t get promoted. Cut your cloth accordingly and live within your means
Unbelievable, they want the league to cut them some slack & in the next breath says he wants to compete in the transfer market , that is taking the P big time
Cry me a f****** river.
I'll show you my bank balance if you like.
