Re: Ex Players

Düsseldorf are in the top flight so not surprising he’s finding it a bit harder, but he did look good enough for that level when he was here. I think he’d walk into this side tbh. Rino’s in reasonable form but he’s not a patch on Baker. Totally wrong role for him. Rinomhota gets around, shields the...

Re: Ex Players

How’s Lewis Baker getting on anyone know? Another one who would fit well into this new balanced team. Doesn't look like he is setting the world alight - https://www.whoscored.com/Players/136772/Show/Lewis-Baker Rumour is Chelsea put him on a very healthy long term contract. I'd be surprised if we'r...

Re: BFTG - Luton

yes agreed, and thats obviously what was happening under the Stam/Clement regime - and hence what I mentioned about it changing when Gomes arrived. Its probably the one thing I look back on with JG and would say he really improved. The one thing? He kept us up, he was very likeable and brought posi...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Yes - and then had the recurring hamstring injuries the season after That was a horror season for him tbh. Just handed a big 5 year deal, team playing crap, and clueless medical staff not having a clue how to treat it . Think he basically said in the end it just sorted itself out - all a bit weird ...

Re: Rival Watch

Sutekh How bad were Reading at Middlesbrough again?

Fairly average. Didn't deserve to lose against a poor team.

Re: The Local Journo Thread

What is the point of JLow's Q&A sessions? All we ever see are opinions and speculation; we can see them on here or Twitter. Talk to players/staff/directors as a journalist. Give us insights we don't know.

Last game of his career against Reading a 3-0 loss? Would be fitting.

Re: Rival Watch

I don't think Bowen would let a couple of defeats derail it. I like his mantra of earning the right to play by doing the nasty stuff well. You look at the 2005-07 team and the 2012 team and even with all abundant skill, the spine of both sides would run through brick walls for the team; Ivar, Sonko...

Re: Rival Watch

3rd of the matches played- who looks as if they could be for the drop ? Barnsley look woeful and on Saturday’s performance Luton could join them. Think Wigan could join them. Barnsley are done I think. Not won since the opening day and bar the odd late equaliser it's a surprise when they pick up ev...

Swift's new role

Interesting to see Swift's form this season. Full fitness and confidence is clearly important, but I think he's matured and adapted his role too. If you'd asked most Reading fans a year ago, we'd have said his best role was a "no. 10" behind the striker, trying to make things happen. But t...

Where does 10 points from 4 rank in terms of best start by a new Reading manager? I can't remember better.

Re: Rival Watch

Stoke appoint O'Neill. Is he going to turn around their fortunes and drag them up the table? My view is no. Similar to Sunderland and Coleman.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Sean Evers

It was and Watford and Leeds were the only two teams we didn't beat that season, drew all 4 of those games. Knew Leeds, forgot Watford. Christ we were great. We weren't great in some games though, the 0-0 Watford away and Southampton away spring to mind :lol: Both Watford games were dire 0-0s. I re...

Anyone remember it ?? 1st match at the Madejski stadium versus Luton 22nd August 1998. We won 3-0 with Grant Brebner scoring the 1st goal. A repeat of the scoreline on Saturday would be nice. Yep. Didn't Fleck get one too? One of only two teams to beat us in the 106 season too. I saw both of them :...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

Would absolutely love a £7.5million right winger though doing what he was bought for, that'd be great. The thing is he's not really a right winger, which is where we got it wrong with him. Just another in a long line of players in the last few seasons who did well elsewhere but were shite for us. V...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

We should do everything to shift in Jan, even if it's free.....however if we're stuck with him he may as well be around the squad. He had shown his quality throughout his career before joining us. He's clearly a confidence player who was at the club in the dire Gourlay era. I wouldn't say I expect ...
