Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

RoyalBlue For the first time in ages teams will be starting to worry about playing us, rather than looking forward to it. Leeds fixtures permitting, expect to see some more stupid kickoff times as Sky realise Reading FC 19/20 are an entertaining team to watch!

Re: Bowen interview

From Despair To Where? I quite like this idea of a sporting director, someone who's not involved in the day to day running of the business or the footballing side but has inside knowledge of the game who can go out and look at best practice and see how we can implement it throughout the club.

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by as hard as it gets

Oilroyal Would love more of the same but without being too gung-ho. I think JG will have us do the basics right. Disciplined in defence, break up their play, win the seconds look to counter.

URZZZZ One of the best performances I’ve seen from us, simply outstanding. Very hard to select standouts but particular credit to Omar Richards who was quite frankly superb today

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Random HT thoughts: - Ejaria brilliant. The ball just sticks to his feet. - I really hope Puscas doesn't have a release clause. - 3 at the back is working. Morrison looks like a rock. - Richards continuing to impress. - Whatever incarnation of Swift this is, it's the one we've all been waiting for....

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

CountryRoyal Everyone forgets how utter toilet Al-Habsi was for us first season.

This is simply nonsensical drivel. He had a couple of very poor games, relatively early on, but went on to be a justifiable PotS.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

royalp-we Yeah he knew what the situation is.

It would be a pretty shitty thing to do if he does walk. Both to the fans and our young players as we have a massive challenge ahead.

If he's minded to have done it he could have watched half our games this season with little effort.



Why would he watch them in the same manner the team had played them ?

Re: BFTG Forest Home

Great 3 points. Launched at Forest right from the off and that I think is what won it as they didn’t seem to be expecting it and they just couldn’t settle into their own game. And the great news on that is that that is what Gomes wants. A high press and tempo to make sure the ball quickly gets back...

Re: The Reading FC players who fans want to keep or sell in January transfer window

A difficult couple of weeks for Jonathan Lowe. Does he do the right thing and hand in his resignation in the New Year? Perhaps the club could subsidise some extra training for him? It really is a difficult situation for the young man. He simply is too nice to be an investigative journalist and he i...

Re: Clement sacked!

Jack Celliers I think we're down. Clement seemed to be generating a bit of team spirit and was picking players on merit. Rinhomota would have kept us up on his own. A new manager will get money to spunk on some more Alukos.

Re: Rival Watch

Brain Traysers Wednesday really haven't been good all season - they have been picking up points through scoring absolute stunners, which isn't a solid long term strategy.

The tide has turned in recent games and they are very much in the same relegation battle as us

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

I'm not really fussed about what players do in their spare time as long as it doesn't effect their performance or ability to train. David James famously put a run of bad form down to his addiction to gaming at the time, so it's not necessarily just something to pass off as an irrelevance if he's sp...

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Snowflake Royal I wish Clement had arrived under better circumstances, could have been really good. Sadly with the shitshower we have for a squad and the mess Stam et al left us he's a dead man walking. As is his replacement at this rate.

Such a shame it’s an incredibly shit squad and that he has been unable to coach it to success. But I really think anyone would struggle with that lot. The interviews have got longer. Very ...
