I was going to write something here but realised I have nothing to add, so I wont.

Re: Nostalgia thread

How about me getting an autograph from Robin Friday straight after the game when he did that phenomenal turn volley goal. It was just amazing. Annoyingly I recorded it on my phone but accidentally deleted it.

Re: BFTG - Luton

I think one of the issues Gomes had in my view was that he seemed to micromanage the players to the point that they didn't seem able to work things out for themselves on the pitch. The Fulham game after Swift was sent off springs to mind. Bowen himself has admitted that he feels there have been tim...

Re: Sack Mark Bowen

Has done well last few games but lacks the experience to get us to the Premiership - we should get Neil Warnock while we can before someone else snaps him up as he knows how to get teams promoted! Completely agree. He hasn't experimented with the lineup. He dropped 2 points at QPR. He has left youn...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Yes - and then had the recurring hamstring injuries the season after That was a horror season for him tbh. Just handed a big 5 year deal, team playing crap, and clueless medical staff not having a clue how to treat it. Think he basically said in the end it just sorted itself out - all a bit weird H...

Re: BFTG - Luton

I respectfully disagree that that list quantified tough decisions. On the formation, after the first game, it no longer factors. He wasnt going to switch it after a win. Blackett was recoving from injury and the lads had just kept a clean sheet. He was never going to slot him in and after the Millw...

Re: BFTG - Luton

For me: Puscas - Baldock partnership . Baldock very sharp. And everywhere on the pitch. Reminds me of Kitson’s defensive efforts. Never stopped running. Our fighting spirit . Clear very early on that we were going to win every 50-50. If not there were 2 other Reading players nearby who would. How of...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

The thing is he's not really a right winger, which is where we got it wrong with him. Just another in a long line of players in the last few seasons who did well elsewhere but were shite for us. Vedra Grabban Sharp Martin Aluko Is it them or us ? Fair enough what is he then? I was under the impress...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

Would absolutely love a £7.5million right winger though doing what he was bought for, that'd be great. The thing is he's not really a right winger, which is where we got it wrong with him.

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

We should do everything to shift in Jan, even if it's free.....however if we're stuck with him he may as well be around the squad. He had shown his quality throughout his career before joining us. He's clearly a confidence player who was at the club in the dire Gourlay era. I wouldn't say I expect ...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

If we were playing a 4-2-3-1, for sure I’d like to see him return in the right attacking midfield role. In that formation, the fullbacks carry out the role on the flanks and it gives Aluko more of a free roam position. It was the 4-3-3 where he was the problem because in that formation, the wingers...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

Beijing Rehne’s last game of the season is against Dalian Yifang on 1st December. After that I presume Sone will return to Reading and be available for the Xmas period. Be interesting to see if he does become involved and if so whether things work out better for him under a manager who is a little ...

Re: Miazga 3 Game Suspension Watch.

I didn't even notice it at the time (although it was down the other end) so it can't have been that bad. Completely different from Mings where everyone in the stadium saw (yes before anyone point it out I'm aware one was home one was away but the point remains) But one was home and the other was aw...

Re: Ade Williams

Disagree if a professional journalist had done the interviews they may have been more guarded. Ady was basically just having a chat with them ex pro to ex pro. Probably got more out of them than a journo would was disappointed the McDermott one didn’t get into his time and Leeds and the return to R...

It's quite irritating that's all. To do it every now and then is fine but it's really not that big a deal tbh.

Re: How times change

I have always 'supported' Liverpool only because when I was 5 my best mate told me he supported them and the Liverpool badge was the best badge in the Panini stickers we were collecting so I arbitrarily decided to support them. I'm glad Liverpool are top of the league but I've never been there and ...
