Re: Pre season tour

Thing is, Loader just can't lead the line. He will get totally bullied and give us no outs. He's not going to hold it up. He naturally drops deeper and it will give us no presence at all and no one to cross to. Meite is obviously an option there, but he's clearly preferred on the right and gives us ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Having watched a couple of friendlies, this would probably be my intended XI for the start of the season if no more Ins/Outs currently. ........................Walker ..Yiadom, Moore, McIntyre, Blackett ...............Rinomhota, Olise Meite,........... Loader,............... Barrow ....................

Re: Pre season tour

17 as Frost would make sense as I do think he and Barrett look a fair bit alike.

If it was Osho in defence... I'm not impressed. Looked very clumsy and plenty of loose passing.

Re: Pre season tour

No 2 looked exactly like Yiadom so much so I'dtestify in Court to it being him! No way it was Watson. Who was 17... looked enthusiastic... could have sworn it looked like Barrett but Barrett was supposed to be 21.... was one of them Frost? Much better 2nd half, though still gave it away way too easi...

Re: Pre season tour

They’re on top now. We had only one real goal threat, header wide from Meite. We’re relying on quick breaks up the middle. Think I saw a back three with McIntyre in midfield towards th end of the half. ?? McIntyre 5? That was confusing me.... thought he was quite poor. Along with Richards(?) at LB

Re: Pre season tour

Some shockingly sloppy passing out from the back and yet again giving it away trying that when under way too much pressure with a high press.

Also terrible crossing. Just look thoroughly disjointed.

Still... 0-0.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

I think Stranded's suggested XI would definitely struggle, very weak in midfield and low on goals. 2 injuries in the wrong places and it's screwed. But. Replace 2 of Swift, Loader and Olise with a genuine CM and Novakovich and I think it looks considerably better. Still fragile to a poor start and s...

Re: Speculation: Ethan Amapadu

Hes one of the hottest youth products in the premier league right now. Wouldn't Frank send him to Derby if anywhere? If Chelsea have a connection with Derby with Lampard, which Prem clubs do Reading have links with? Clement never appeared to bring in players from his old clubs. Yeah, but of the two...

Re: Pre season tour

Did Swift play the full game earlier? Any subs used?

What's the line up for tonight?

I'm hoping Nova has moved up to be first choice striker, Loader or Olise are ahead of Swift in AM and we're about to sign a CM to partner Rino based on what people are saying.

Snowflake Royal Yeah, thanks Google, I'm well aware what it means.


We'll we've scored before without actually putting the ball in the net so didn't want to completely rule it out.

Point. Definitely a point.

Re: Will Gomes stay?

It's not like we're doing nothing or people aren't aware. We're in trouble but we're hardly a lost cause. Look on the bright side. If we do go down, we'll have got invaluable experience for a lot of promising Academy players at a higher level and got through our big financial worry of a season, so f...

The Enfield Royal71 Im talking numbers. If You are saying goals per minute is the basis of being a great striker you could say that the world's best striker is paco alcacer with a goal every 67 minutes.


Well tbh any other metric is stupid. It's nigh on impossible to score when you're not playing.

Nigh on?

Re: Will Gomes stay?

We can’t just rely on three teams being worse than us for the third season running though can we. As it is, this squad may be competitive in the EFL Trophy. But not the EFL Championship. Gomes knows this too, hence the sudden pressing comments on recruitment. Well, it'll be more competitive than a ...

I for one am glad he's not coming back Yeah brilliant news. We've lost one of our strikers to a potential relegation rival and now the guy we wanted to replace him with looks to be going somewhere else, leaving us to scramble for a replacement who likely won't be as good as Oliveira or Bod.

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

Jaakkola was actually plenty good enough under Clement, he just falls apart when asked play out. So given that's how Gomes plays and he was ooc that was an obvious decision.

Not sure I fancy Walker playing out either but he might be able to cope if not be comfortable.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Would explain Gomes' growing frustration if he's been there for the taking for weeks and we lose out because no one but Gourlay wants Sam Baldock or David Meyler.
