Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (a)

Jagermesiter1871 That Sky commentary was horrendous. Never noticed it before but if you were just listening to the audio you'd have thought Barnsley were playing like 1970 Brazil and we were camped in our box.

Ref was awful as well, but that's a given.


TBF I don’t think he got a lot wrong.

Re: Stadium capacity measured against average attendance

Just came across on You Tube a summary of each Club s stadium capacity.We came in at 40 th largest capacity across all the football stadiums.I would imagine the likes of Sunderland pre Covid ,the fans were rattling around in vast sparsely attended stadiums.I imagine it’s the same for Hull and Hudde...

Re: A Few Thoughts on the Last Eight Games

It would be fair to say in terms of investment,that we are not getting value for money out of our two highest earners.Moore has been alarmingly inconsistent since his first season,while Swift has never played anything like a full season since he has been here.TBF as a return on investment the rest a...

Berkshire Live Final League Table Prediction

That time of yearagain.Anybody had a go at the Berkshire Live final League table prediction ? It never works out as you would expect as the Championship is so unpredictable,so I took the result I came up with;with a pinch of salt.However my prediction resulted in Norwich beating our year 2005 points...

Re: Which players are not getting a break ?

Ref ; John Smith comments , it’s not that Raphael is a bad goalkeeper - it’s just that he’s not a good one I’ve also yet to be convinced that Holmes is better on the pitch than the bench . Wait until he's out injured. He'll be brilliant then Unfortunately Tom got rinsed on Saturday.He really isn’t ...

Re: New FFP rules

Given Covid I really think 19/20 and 20/21 should be taken out of the equation for FFP.Especially as most of the country bar the supermarkets and Amazon are bust.I dread to think what Reading Town Centre is like now.Has everything gone ? Anybody been in recently ? Even John Lewis are closing stores.

Re: Which players are not getting a break ?

Anybody know who isn’t getting a break over the International call ups ? Jao and Laurent clearly need some down time to get back to where they were.I think I read Moore has jetted off for Jamaica ? Sorry Westwood, but it's really bugging me for some reason. Could you spell Joao's name right please?...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h)

Anyone got better angles of the off side goal? The only one I can see doesn't look offside at all. Yeah I would like to see this again. It didn’t occur to me that Moore was offside. Looked to me like the lino flagged one of the other players offside rather than Moore who was out of picture but cert...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h)

TBF where we are from four seasons of relegation fodder is a pretty good achievement.I suspect the Owners however would expect us to be at least comfortably in the Play Offs.Pauno may well be the scapegoat and ditched.Pre season acquisitions were poor barring Ovie and Laurent.We went for Semedo who...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Worse than Wycombe that was for me - slow, pedestrian football around the back, not getting anywhere with it, before an aimless hoof and pretty much repeat Key partnerships around the pitch didn’t work - the CB’s, particularly Moore were bullied throughout and Joao and Meite had little cohesion tog...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

We were dreadful.Birmingham totally deserved that.A limited team but everyone of them just gave it everything.We seem to struggle to create anything when the opposition sit deep,for all our possession we created hardly anything throughout.Quite simply without Swift we just don’t have any craft.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

No creativity really - only Olise is capable of creating anything & he’s had 3 men on him whenever he’s been on the ball. Tempo is far too slow. But we’ve got some good options on the bench & it can easily turn in our favour Playing three CDM s against one of the worst teams in the league.R...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Our second half can’t be any worse than that.Moore and Olise particularly bad.The pitch and Ref a disgrace;but the EFL won’t take any sanctions against either. I think Bowyer took one look at the pitch when he arrived,and told the Groundsman not to water it whatever he did.The game then becomes a lo...
