Re: FA Cup 19/20

John Smith IF we win the replay, does Bowen put out a full strength side for the next round?


Depends who we draw tonight. Although I would suggest it doesn't matter who it is, he won't be putting out the full strength XI.

Re: Rival Watch

Old Man Andrews Leeds have made what is arguably the greatest signing in Championship history.

Re: 2019/2020 FA Cup

For me, the only reason why you would want Championship clubs to do well is;

a) it is more fixtures for them in the season, which would help Reading in the league games

or

b) they knock out Premier League teams, thus allowing an 'easier' route for Reading or an unfancied team.

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

We are still mathematically able to reach the play offs. It is not even February yet and the history of the Championship shows that there is always the potential for a team to put a run together late on. Our players have already proven they can go toe to toe with the best in the league and if we ca...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Jason Bowen

Could be broken ankle for Miazga. What's better, a break / fracture or a bad sprain? I know mine's never been the same since I sprained it, but I didn't get immediate ice and proper physio. The wrist I broke is fine though. Yeah but I guess you don’t use your wrist as much as your ankl... oh. :wink:

They do a kids box set for £44ea. I need 2 with names :lol: It was January last year; but I guess they were flogging the Puma merch.

Re: Pedro Mendes

An abomination? Think that is a bit extreme :|

Whoscored has his stats as:

6.81 for 2016/17
6.67 for 2017/18
6.76 for 2018/19

Average of 6.74, not that bad.

Re: Pedro Mendes

WoodleyRoyal well the last two players who played for sporting and for us were a success..


Tbf to Carriço, he did go on and win the Europa League with Sevilla. harsh to judge him on 3 performances for us.

I also didn't think Illori was that bad for us. Certainly seen worse defenders.

No, not that one..

Reading are looking to bring Sporting Lisbon's striker on a loan, with option to buy.

He has scored 15 goals in 20 games for their U-23s and has played 6 times for the first team, including 4 in the Europa League.
