Re: Obita new contract

I think Obita going to another club might be good for both of us. For whatever reason, he needs to restart his career and for the right club, he is going to be a great buy if they can keep him healthy. I rate the guy, but we need to trim the squad. If we genuinely think we are going to get 35+ games...

Re: The 'they never played for Reading, did they?!' XI

I like the Sean Goater Nom - Would replace Antonio with it - as we basically created Antonio, so hes definitely one of ours. Like Siggurdson.

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Jimmy Crawford could have been a half decent player but we simply didnt know where to play him. He lost all confidence and we gave up on him. Of that era, Andy Mclaren was a more noticeable bad player as he played less than 10 times, got loaned out and failed a drugs test. I think more recently, we ...

Re: Best Reading FC performances in your lifetime

We scored 4 away from home so he must have been responsible for some of the defending-I don't remember but he probably did his usual and stood watching with his hand in the air while we took them to pieces. If you still went to a few games you might understand why he doesn't get chosen any more and...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Might be of interest looking at Ireland's figures. Of the 4,014 confirmed cases as of midnight 02/04/20, 1,118 required hospitalisation, i.e., 27.8% 158 of those 1118 required ICU treatment. (14.13% of hospitalised cases, 3.93% of confirmed cases) Ireland are testing a lot more per head of populati...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So Italy is suffering a death rate double the rest of the world it seems. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it due to more elderly being infected? Is there an age breakdown for those affected? To answer your second question - the age breakdown is overwhelmingly old patients in Italy. It has b...

Re: Bowen Out.

He's made us more difficult to beat, instilled some organisation and given us some fight. We're definitely less of a soft touch. It's a starting point and long overdue given the last 5 years. It took Coppell a couple of years of fairly uninspiring football to hit paydirt. Not trying to compare him ...

Re: Bowen Out.

The stats are pretty good. Odd then that I don't FEEL we're that good Although youve done a bit of your usual stats massage, this conclusion is pretty much sound. We are certainly better than we were under Gomez and the last season of Stam, but are still pretty bang average overall. What your stats...

Re: February perspective

The Championship is nuts. Just looked at the league table and no team is unbeaten over the last five games, but conversely every team in the division has won at least one of those five games - except Reading. I think the league is completely mediocre this year. WRT OP, i think you have to look at o...

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

I don’t get the 11 changes and a load of kids on the bench. We are not going’ to reach the playoffs. We are 15th in the league it ain’t going to happen. But we had a great chance of making the quarterfinals or more with a favourable draw. No replays and penalties from the next round onwards. Instea...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

With a bit of planning I think Reading would be a decent away day. Generally pretty easy to get to the town - loads of decent pubs there, the hop on the bus for 3pm I’d have thought the away end would be pretty good as well - good views, good atmosphere when they sing Can understand that Berkshire ...

Re: Where will we finish?

Interesting reading this back, particularly those comments made during Gomes' best week. I'm now thinking 8th - 12th under Bowen. Can't bring myself to hope for playoffs yet. This feels about right. We're not doing anything spectacular, but we're doing things we havent done for a while. Coming from...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Just seen the free kick again. Rafael should have done better imo. Nope top corner. It was an excellent strike, no doubt. But the wall was not in the right place nor was there enough people in it. Keeper openly invited the taker to put it in the corner he did. Anyway.... This is my first time in a ...

Re: FA Cup 3rd Round Draw

i think its a pretty decent draw. Obviously you want to avoid the 23 teams you are playing twice already this year. Plus Ive never seen the appeal of drawing a much stronger team than you from the top of the Premiership. The key to a run in the cup, IMHO, is to be handed a nice 3rd round draw, and h...
