Re: Next 5 games are key

We shouldn't lose any of the next 4 games, 8-12 points is the realistic range, gives us a nice lead before the brutal late November schedule drags us back down to earth a bit. Get to 26-28 off of 10, and then using the usual ~90 for promotion, ~73 for 6th we would need 1.278 PPG for 6th (ie. 1/3rd w...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by a James Harper debut

Esteves in for Holmes. Holmes in for Moore if injured. Puscas for Meite. A win would be great. Bournemouth play Cardiff then Watford (6th) Bristol (3rd) play Swansea (4th) There's a very strong chance that 2nd place will be on 14/15 points come the end of Sunday. This league is all about getting the...

Re: BFIT - Wycombe (H)

Moore was imperious, easily MotM for me.

Given that Joao now has two/three men on him the entire time, maybe we should start Puscas over Meite, he would do well in the extra space. Can't believe that I'm saying it, but we need to see more of Aluko.

Reading wanted ‘more than double’ the £3.5m :lol: that Sheffield United offered for John Swift earlier in the summer.


Maths checks out. £35m is more than double £3.5m.

Re: Sone Aluko

He's been a really expensive disaster so far. Nothing against him personally, he changed employers for a good payrise (like every single one of us would do), hasn't moaned at being exiled, and seemingly still tries in training. What's done is done, hopefully with the new management (which unlike Gom...

Having loads of technically excellent dribblers combined with really good set pieces is a lovely combination.

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

The only other thing I’ll add is that both Derby and Barnsley showed nothing up top, no presence at all. Cardiff will be a real test for our defence next week with Kieffer Moore and with Watford the following week; there’s some far tougher games ahead. Yep Moore will be a handful. Offsetting that, ...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

I'm not convinced that Meite is very good technically at football. He doesn't have an outstanding touch, shooting can be streaky, and he doesn't link up amazingly with teammates. What he does do very well is showing up when we need him, and he absolutely cares an awful lot about doing well (for this...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

A few observations. The first XI is top 6 quality. We've been performing as less than the sum of the parts for a long time. Joao is the single most pivotal player we've had in recent memory. Not since before the glory days have we been so reliant on one player to get our game to work. Worth every pe...

Re: Rival Watch

On the Derby forum they seem overly confident that the EFL don't have a leg to stand on, that they signed off the stadium sale and would be open to legal measures if they try and punish Derby. They might be right in the end but if it were us I'd be bricking it right now. All fans of cheating teams ...

Re: Rival Watch

I have read two separate articles today and in both they quote Reading fc along with Birmingham and Sheffield Wednesday as under scrutiny for being in similar position to derby linked to their selling of ground rights!! Should we be worried? No, we did sell our stadium to our owners, but at £27m (w...

Bowen has made a terrible mistake. Yep. The 4th round could distract from the league campaign There is no league campaign, we aren't a top 6 side. A cup run is our excitement this season. Quality wise we're top 6 in every aspect bar forwards, there's a reason why only 4 sides have conceded fewer go...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by James Lambert

How the f*ck have we not scored. Between the FK in the first half, the post hit and that we should have at least got one, making lots of opportunities though.
