Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

The main driver for moving to Bearwood was to sustain the academy, so we won’t be scrapping it any time soon. “ The natural evolution of Reading FC has seen it outgrow its Hogwood Park home and with the club’s ongoing investment in the Premier League’s Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) structure...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Funnily I think he was at his best (maybe not most effective) in that brief spell where he played wide left with Blackett near him and Swift on the inside. His quick movement and slick passing led to a lot more development than it did in other positions. He didn't shine but he allowed others to shi...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Silver Fox We might as well just fold the club if we're not willing to pay the £3m we agreed for what could be an absolute star who we could easily cash in on at the end of the season if he doesn't help us get promoted

Post eye-rolls as much as you like, you are generally known for talking
twaddle, and for a few seasons you pontificated after "watching" by radio.


Yeah I like stats to back my arguments. You're just pompous and a bit dumb

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

You're right he wasn't shouty, that was just his stat spam and an earlier post with a massive font enlarge. Talk to different people and they'll tell you he was best wide combined with Blackett. I do think centrally is where he's best. But his performance remains underwhelming on end product pretty...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Look snowball, you can get shouty all you want, but the fact is those ratings are highly questionable and whoscored frequently gets our formation and player positions wrong. Feel free to spam poor judgements based on questionable stats to back up your view, I know it's your raison d'etre. Just don'...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Snowflake Royal Who scored's formations and positions are highly dubious. So any look at performance based o that isn't worth much.



We KNOW he has rarely played in his favoured position, and we know when he did he scored goals

Re: Bowen's Tenure

No idea about this, but have players like Aluko, who have gone badly off for 1-2 seasons
ever suddenly come back to top form? Aluko at his best would be a good signing right now.

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

It’s the unfortunate trait of a modern footballer...lots of skill but doesn’t excel in any position . If 5th best player of 359 in the league is not excelling. He is strikingly a MUCH better player when played high attacking midfield. I suggest at 22 and a half, that is extremely promising. Doe any...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

It doesn’t help when he’s constantly played in a position which doesn’t suit him. What does suit him though? He's played normal midfield, attacking midfield, left forward, left midfield.... He's looked basically the same everywhere . NOT REMOTELY TRUE Hugely talented, but too showy, poor tempo and ...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Take a look at WhoScored. It's quite revealing Ovie played in about six positions but was stand-out when played high central as AM His overall score, including often playing wide (Deffo not his favourite) was 7.17 making him 20th in the league. Swift was 7.22 in 14th Swift is 2.5 years older and got...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

I sincerely believe Ejaria has the ability to be a superstar Second, I just LOVE watching him on the ball. He is also excellent at ball-winning Remember, as said elsewhere, he is heavily marked meaning the other outfield players have more space. If he only improves by 20% in a season (he is young!) ...

Re: Triple Points or Not?

SouthDownsRoyal Before the season could you pick a certain number of games which would be double points or similar?

Bit like chips in fantasy football?

Just a thought


Thanks


I’ll have to check if it’s OK with OMA

If we're going back on our word with Liverpool only to sign him on a free, I assume they will never loan/sell us anybody again and could have grounds to take us to court. I assume we're making a late attempt to get him to agree to a lower wage, which isn't as silly as it sounds in the current envir...
