Re: Season 20/21

Gotta agree in part....totally needless and pointless insult of an erudite poster there Ian. But in all fairness, there’s a lot of it about. You might want to take a wee look at who got shirty first. And at least neither of us were following the other round the board to jump in with a dig at any op...

AthleticoSpizz If he’s fit enough to play, he should play, that’s his job.

But, obviously, your opinion would be the correct opinion.

Grow up.

Re: Injury watch 2020/21

I kinda hope we don't risk Joao. It's one game and he's really important to the season.

It would just seem unnecessary.

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Unfortunately for them, as a rivalry, its largely unrequited and we traditionally had more interest in...

Re: Season 20/21

You're pushing your luck with this OMA. I'm getting tired of you constantly following me around and being offensive and belittling.

Pack it in. Now.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by Chris Armstrong

Oh dear! Always a worry when the manager resorts to a double negative. Quote from JLow's press conference: "We’re not going to say we’re not looking for depth, we’re very happy with the guys we have. If there are chances to improve our depth we’ll take a decision. We have to focus on the next ...

Re: Season 20/21

I’d agree, in his brief first team outings and with the U23 he looked perfectly competent. Saying some one is ‘League 1 standard’ is a meaningless sound bite. I reckon Paul is alluding to some kind of off the pitch issue, and I have no idea if that is accurate or not. I think Paul is alluding to be...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

I always thought the main reason for these long contracts, especially for money signings, is to flatten the cost with regards to FFP. We weren't doing anything unusual within the game - aside from signing the wrong players of course. Another example of how FFP was/is deeply flawed. That only really...

Re: Season 20/21

Howe is League One standard - would offer up more about him and players view, but wont be getting into that debate. He added nothing to positive team performance. He didn't look remotely out of place when I saw him. I’d agree, in his brief first team outings and with the U23 he looked perfectly com...

On this day 15 years ago was probably the first time I really thought, "yeah, we could get promoted here" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZTVrQuByNs 2 things always remember about that game. Kenny stopping a certain own goal outside his area with his hand and just getting a yellow but th...

Re: Season 20/21

Decision to let Howe go is looking pretty questionable again. Between end of last season and our two RB injuries he could easily have amassed a decent number of appearances by Xmas.

10/10 but yeah, No 2 looks nothing like I remember him and looked more like one of the other options but I got it right from the kit. There were a couple I got from knowing they weren't the other options rather than definitely recognising them. yeah i got that one wrong.. I've got a squad picture o...

Re: Season 20/21

Only 20? Anyone else remember when a typical squad was about 23 players, not 33? Yeah, good point. We spent a lot of time complaining about having too big a squad. The balance is still off which is why is looks a bit bare but we are not far off. Lose Walker, McNulty, Smith and Baldock for a DM, ST ...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

I think McNulty is in his final year with us which helps. If we get anything for me we need to let him go. Can’t see us getting more than £200,000 anyway. Marc McNulty is contracted to Reading until June 2022. My life really? Why on earth did we hand out a 4-year contract to a player who hadn’t yet...
