Re: Pauno out

With one or two exceptions to his listing....was kind’ve leaning to the ‘not good enough’ theory tbf. But yeah, give them a go.....careers potentially finished before they even begin :roll: We won’t know if they can cope unless they are given a chance. If you were at the Blackpool game you will hav...

Re: BTFG Blackburn

Think we have to be realistic with where we are. Of course games like yesterday and Blackpool will help fuel those who think Pauno isnt up to it - no real problem with that. He does seem to have his limitations certainly But then these are exceptionally trying circumstances. Expecting us to be top 6...

Re: Pauno out

Holmes, Osorio, Clarke, Ehibhatiomhan, Camara. Shape. Decisions. Options were there. Action wasn't taken. With the exception of Holmes, the jury's out on all of those on whether they're good enough for League 1, let alone the Championship Even just Holmes offers multiple options. Don't put them on ...

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

I give you Vydra, Grabben and Billy Sharp, free scorers where ever they play at this level until they came here. Decided to take a quick look at stats for each. Vydra: 3 in 31 for Reading - 1 in 10 65 in 187 total for Championship - 1 in 3 Grabban 3 in 16 for Reading - 1 in 5 82 in 214 total for Ch...

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

There are very few clubs who will be living with being unable to make any changes game to game without weakening the side, so halves like yesterday will happen until we have 3 or 4 more players back. It is also a hard accusation to put on this group when over the past 8 games they are W5 D1 L2. Tha...

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

'fraid so

Think Pauno also mentioned last season when injured he spent a lot of the time round the team keeping people's spirits up etc, so very much doubt there is an issue there

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a)

don't think Azeez has really shown enough to earn a starting place. Hardly banging down the door to replace Puscas. I'd consider bringing him in for Laurent though and moving TDB central. But we really don't have a lot of options. Pretty sure last night was our strongest with what's available, and u...

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

Moore and Dann were quality last night - top performance and in general at no fault for what happened. That all came down to the midfield , All 5 of them who were powder puff all game, walked through and non existent. Mention it before, but i do think Laurent is over rated. Better as a centre back ...

massive opportunity missed really. 20 odd mins from being in 5th and sitting pretty

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

some telling stats on whoscored. 42% of the play was in our defensive third = compared to 17% in the away third (higher than i expected tbh) On the average player positions, only Puscas spent more time in the Blackpool half than our own (Swift bang on half way). All but the Blackpool keeper and CBs ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Blackpool are understandably elated lookin at their forum, no gloating and very truthful that they played us of the park. They deserve it to be fair. They put in a cracking performance so let them enjoy it just a quick search on their manager suggests they may have picked a good one there as well. ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

There are a large number of supporters who simply will refuse to blame Liam Moore for anything because he is a nice guy, has been quite accessible etc. The facts are he has been really poor for about 2 seasons now, continuously lets us down and puts a lot of pressure on our defenders and goalkeeper...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

For those saying that was the worse 2nd half since Bristol rovers I`ll give you Ipswich 4-0 defeat under Clement. we weren't as outplayed in that game from memory. In fact I think it was pretty close, us being the better side until they scored, and we crumbled chasing an equaliser. And conceded twi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

I don’t think it's any coincidence that the first time we concede under sustained pressure with Moore back in the team we completely fall apart and panic. It's exactly what was happening before he got injured. Harsh Ian. We lost last night because our midfield was abysmal. Dann and Moore had done w...

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

that Puscas chance is really how we should be playing for him. It was utterly simple, but he made an excellent run, and had the pace and strength to get in behind.

Shame that was about the only time we tried it all night

Re: BFTG Blackpool.

Be interesting to know peoples thoughts on what could Pauno of done different. Strangest 2-0 lead at half time and then absolutely battered 2nd half. With what we all knew was coming, what could of been done to prevent that? Not a lot Guess options could have been to bring on Holmes and play 3 at t...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

Agree about Puscas and the fouls. He so rarely wins a free kick when the defender is all over him. I mentioned on another post about how much space and time we are giving opposition teams. It happened on Saturday and again last night. It took so little for Blackpool to get the ball out wide into a ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

It seemed to me that the few fit players we have simply ran out of gas and even trying to manipulate formations may have not have been enough. It’s not surprising that they may be running on empty since they’ve all had a great run but with precious little backup/reinforcements I think there is trut...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackpool (h)

One for those who say Pauno should’ve changed it/bought players on. Who exactly? What else could he have done? His hands are incredibly tied at the moment Don’t think anyone could disagree his hands are tied but there’s pretty much always an opportunity to change things up The entire midfield were ...
