Re: GOMES OUT!

I think the problem for Gomes was that he was unable to manage expectations. He convinced everyone that we will be taking 2 points per game and we will be pushing for promotion. He set expectations too high. He allowed complacency to set in and was clearly out of his depth in the end. He was a grea...

Re: GOMES OUT!

This season we have seen the fall of one of the most popular managers at this club. He was charismatic yes. but can anyone seriously tell me he was going to be the man to take us forward? I feel that the reason for him being so popular was due to the rise of the new 1871 movement at reading. Either ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) sponsored by Sammy Chung

Howie wasn't even the worst keeper at the club at the time he was here. We had Peter van der Kwaak as well. Not to mention others like Gary Phillips, Nick Colgan and Simon Shepherd. Virginia is definitely deserves to be in that sort of company though. He's been worth a goal start to the opposition ...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Stam’s last 8 games : 4 points Clement’s first 8 games : 8 points So he kept us up It’s absolute nonsense to call him a disaster Stam win Ratio 40.82% Clement win Ratio 23.33% worst of all time......to be below Bodgers and Burns takes some doing. What is Gomes win Ratio? Matches 33 W 10 D 11 L 12 G...

Re: SPECULATION - Charlie Austin

No thanks. Past it for me. Rather sign some younger more hungry strikers. Also now we've signed Joao and gonna sign Puscas is there any need for him.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

NotARacist Gones just said Puscas and maybe one more :shock: :shock: :shock:

Gotta be Ejaria on a permanent. Liverpool won't loan him and we probably need one more midfielder, I didn't see any creativity in the last game from our midfield.

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

Conor Washngton (Weren't we in for him a couple of years ago?), Martin Olsson and Leroy Fer for me. Was going to agree then I looked at his stats. 2016-17 (QPR) - 40 apps 7 goals 2 assists. 2017-18 (QPR) - 33 apps 6 goals 1 assist. 2018-19 - 15 apps (Sheffield united) 0 goals 1 assist.

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

I would personally want Kelle Roos from Derby. He can be a really talented keeper on his day. 6 clean sheets for them last season in 16 games. I also wouldnt mind seeing Tommy Elphick coming back. Both are being released this summer.

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Fezza Delighted he's signed, just need a left back now!

I think cover on both sides would be preferable. Left and Right back. Seems like Gunter's stock at the club is finally dwindling! Also another Goal keeper too, But it looks like were getting Martinez.

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Christ no, Just because he`s a Reading legend doesn`t make him a good manager, and from his track record he clearly is not. To be honest, Reading Legend or not, I can't think of many manager's better suited to our current malaise who are in employment (or not) and are realistic possibilities. He's ...

Re: Protest

Protests are fine, but what would we be protesting about - the owners, Gourlay, the manager, players - or a combination of all of them? Sacking Stam last season and bringing in Clement was a no-brainer at the time - something had to change and we had nothing to lose really, sacking the manager this...

Re: Palace(H) friendly Saturday July 28th

I am shocked by the negativity here. I expected us to lose by at least 3 v Fulham (0-0), expected a big defeat by Beisktas (2-2) and another defeat by The Russians (0-0). To get three draws from this games was very, VERY solid results-wise. My personal prediction yesterday was "We'' scrape a 2...

Oxford have confirmed they are trying to get Smith in on loan and sounds like he will go somewhere With Yann out the picture, we must have someone else lined up.
