Re: SPECULATION - Danny Williams

Many Nobbers expressed the view that our side went downhill when Al Habsi and Williams left us after the 2016/17 season. We appear to have found a good replacement for Al Habsi although Martinez is only here on loan. What Williams brought to the team was energy and purpose, attributes that we still ...

Re: Ex Players

URZZZZ Sean Morrison?
Not sure where Piazon/Oxford are
Bacuna :D

I forgot about Morrison and Bacuna but not sure I'd change anyone for them. Piazon spent a few seasons on loan to Fulham doing quite well but now plays abroad somewhere. Oxford is playing in Germany.

Re: Ex Players

For no reason whatsoever (except having too much time on my hands), I looked at the possibility of creating a full team of ex-Reading players (including loanees) from the current Premiere League squads. I make no claims of greatness for this side but here is what I came up with. Can you do better? A...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

We deserved to lose, i'm not sure 3-0 was a fair reflection. I agree with that but, on the other hand, Leeds missed at least two guilt edged chances in the second half so it could, and should, have been 5 - 0 although Ayling should have been sent off for a nailed on second bookable offence. We didn...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by Nicky Forster

Just watched the Sky highlights. The total joy and togetherness of the players and management staff was great to see. There is spirit in this side and with back-to-back wins maybe we can play with a bit more confidence now.

Old Man Andrews You are completely clueless. Rotherham were perfectly ok, far from rubbish.

In fact so far from rubbish that they lead Blackburn 1 - 0 at the moment!

Re: BFTG Rotherham

Given what has gone before, it was always going to be a tight game and anyone thinking otherwise is deluded. Rotherham are not the best team but were always going to put up a fight. We were comfortable at 1-0 but after half time sat back far too much. Bringing on O’Shea with over 20mins left was st...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by Nicky Forster

Let's hope Gomes can restore a bit of confidence in the team after this thrashing. We're going to need it next Saturday. Still, we have had 60% possession apparently - reminds me of Stam Days!

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

It's a win; it's three points and we needed that badly. However, we were very poor in the first half and, to be honest, not much better in the second half. - too many passes going astray - losing the ball too easily and too often - there's a lack of urgency and energy in our play Swift, for example,...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Yes - The Rangers fans seem very fair in their assessments of the game. here's another comment from the same website (but different thread) ... "Happy with the point. Reading’s new manager has really brought new energy to their squad, the passing was slick and their wingers ran great lines. Con...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers sponsored by the Simod Cup started here

However you look at it it is a decent result. We were without Moore, Blackett, Bacuna and Ezatolahi (and Obita, of course) and Meite and Bod were not up to match fitness. So a clean sheet and a point away to an in-form team on the edge of the play-offs is surprisingly good. Hopefully we can start sc...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

As others have said, it was an exciting games but a relief to hear the final whistle. Still - 3 valuable points, particularly as most of the teams around us didn't lose. Did we play well? In spots we did and our goals were taken well but there were still too many basic errors. Kelly had his best gam...
