Dare to dream?

According to recent media reports, Arsenal seem to be hell bent on signing a new keeper in the Summer to replace Petr Cech (Valencia's Norberto Murarawill and Dynamo Dresden’s Markus Schubert) This all suggests that Martinez may well be third choice (at best) at the Emirates next season. Could we po...

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

Attacking midfielder born 2003 My son was in the school team with him, so yeah. A bit Ollie-selfish, but so far ahead of everyone else on the pitch..probably not a Rinomhota but not a Kelly, either (in a good way). Have some school videos..if Bielsa wants to make me an offer But sheriously. Left fo...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

I’ve supported the club for 47 years and cannot remember a season where we managed to avoid relegation having been in such dire straits at the start of the New Year. It’s been a brilliant turnaround. Just compare the atmosphere today compared with the likes of QPR, Bolton etc. Jose Gomes take a bow...

Re: BFTG Rotherham

Given what has gone before, it was always going to be a tight game and anyone thinking otherwise is deluded. Rotherham are not the best team but were always going to put up a fight. We were comfortable at 1-0 but after half time sat back far too much. Bringing on O’Shea with over 20mins left was stu...

Re: BFTG Villa

We’ve all played football albeit at a much lower level. I find it very hard to believe that any of us have inadvertently stamped on somebody’s face like this. I think it’s deliberate. Twice in two years. Wow. Exactly. His momentum would EASILY take him away from Oliviera's face. But he extends his ...

Re: BFTG Villa

Ejaria 3 - You were not at the game. Thought Ejaria had a very decent game, along with the keeper (who won us the point) and Miazga who was solid and calm. Slight disappointments for me were Yiadom, who was not at his usual level, Baker who obviously has talent but was too casual at times today and...

Re: Rumour - Marc McNulty

Did we really pay £1.5 million for him? With alll our deals being "undisclosed" it's only when other clubs make prices known that we get a better idea. There is a goalscorer in there but regrettably not for us, for whatever reason. Feel sorry for him. Not really given a fair chance to pro...

Re: Gomes BBC Berks Interview

11 minute interview. Dellor asks the right questions. Be posted up later on the BBC Website. Thought he did as well as could be expected with the interview in the circumstances. Admitted moving Rinomhota to Full back to accommodate Baker. Had to change things when it wasn’t working and the performa...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Good cameo performance on debut. Certainly seems to have no shortage of confidence and self belief and not a little quality to back that up. Shame he blazed over the bar near the end............!

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

Slightly puzzled by the BBC report... https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46766459 ...which talks about us "defending in numbers" and only looking better once Forest were down to 10 men. At no stage in the game did Forest ever have a spell of pressure and look on top. I wouldn't say it w...

Re: Clear out started

Gravenberch was signed about three days before he was sacked in the summer, and was pretty clearly a Tevreden signing. I think it's fair to say that a couple of signings in January and then getting the boot for no reason isn't much of a chance to recruit. Rakels was an owners signing as well. McDer...

Old Man Andrews Ex Chancellor of the Exchequer Geoffrey Howe?

I'd still take him over a Gourlay return though.

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

Score flattered us certainly. Jaakkola had a blinder, we got a VERY luck penalty (superbly put away by Baldock) and Meite had his best game in a Reading shirt. Even the subs worked. But we rode our luck. Could have been a different score on a different day against a different team. That said, we gav...

Re: BFTG - Leeds

Why are people thinking that entire performance and a point was good enough? Seriously? We’re a shambles. And it’s getting worse. Leeds were a dreadful away side and they scored two and got a draw. But hey! We got a point. Are you all totally fcuking mad? Indeed. As I left I heard someone say ‘oh w...

Re: BFTG - Derby

Yes we pretty much gifted Derby three goals, and had a terrible twenty mins or so at the start of the second half, but that was the first game this season that I have actually enjoyed watching! At last a bit of excitement at the Madjeski! Such a change from the turgid crap we normally serve up. Just...
