Re: Rival Watch

Poor Brentford won't have Josh da Silva for a few weeks. That is a horrendous tackle tonight v Spurs. The worst I have seen since Mings stamped on Olivera's face.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

At least we can say that "these things even themselves out over the course of a season". Grrr My pet hate Why should it? Why can’t we just get crap decisions throughout the year, or not? It’s quite possible we get shit refs each game :wink: Shit refs every game is still better than VAR th...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by as tough as it gets

That was a horrible refereeing performance. It almost makes me hope we don't go up because it was just like trying to play twelve men every week in the premiership. It's not just the big decisions, it's the drip-drip-drip of the benefit of the doubt being given to the more illustrious side every tim...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Leeds

What a difference a month makes. With Reading appearing so much on TV lately and Michael Olise playing so well in those televised games his asking price has seemingly rocketed in such a short period of time with him and Reading becoming flavour of the month. It made me wonder what sort of club he m...

Best Player in the World Ever

The BBC is letting you choose at the moment, in honour of Pele's 80th Birthday. I found it extremely tough to choose between players of different eras and ended up with this: https://ranked-list-images.files.bbci.co.uk/PeleGOAT-7e1080a14f0a1949e3f7d498548cda5e.jpg I would probably come up with a dif...

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Meite is never going to be a really great player but his zest and eye for goal is very welcome. Still only 24. In a better team will excel. I got told on Friday, "you'll do well this season. You've got Meite haven't you." From a Millwall fan. If you score goals and are big and quick you w...

Re: End of season sale - value the squad

Meite is our main asset - he is the kind of player championship clubs were paying more than £10 million for pre-covid. Swift is also worth millions, but possibly no longer part of the future for a team like Leeds Somebody might remember Moore being good and have a wage structure to match his current...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

We would be mad not to sign him as he has been a tremendous player for us. Missing out on him would be as bad as missing out on Jolyon Lescott for the sake of a few pence. However, it's not my money and if we can't afford him, we can't afford him.

Re: VAR

FIFA are going to take control of VAR because it isn't as they wanted it to be. The FA seem to be the worst culprits by far as our on-field refs aren't consulting the pitch-side monitor and the ones in the studio are too loyal to their mates to overturn poor decisions - the mad-eyed bald Italian ref...

Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Lower West Mid table team in mid table position. Ship steadied. Just need to keep the core together for next season. There's something to build on.


Basically that

Again convinced we can lose 15+ players and still have enough to tread water next season

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

I am a great follower of the Academy and love it when we bring young players through and give them a chance. In the case of Loader he clearly thinks he is far better than he has shown us so far and it leaves a very bad taste in my mouth that he has not even tried to make it here at the club that ha...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

McIntyre was unlucky to not get a new contract. He did ok. We iirc McIntyre was diabolical played upfront, but when he moved back a bit actually did quite well. He is probably the third name on my personal worst ever XI, partly for not being the type of striker who scores goals and partly for his p...
