Not bored with Stam's "total non-football" are you Sutekh???



Who isn’t? Been bored with it ever since it put in an appearance but at least the wins last season made it a bearable journey for a team in development

This season that development has ground to a halt and everything’s gone backwards. Literally.

Still be hoping that Reading can get a win in a game that matters on Saturday though...

windermereROYAL He`s a striker and he can finish.


So who were all those saying he's 'bambi on ice' then? Was that Stam, too?


I think most on here have been pretty complimentary on Dadi tbh. We’d all have liked to see him play more I think


Not really, nope. 'He's not a goalscorer, he never has been anywhere, and Stam is a you know what for bringing him in here and thinking he could be'.

You tell us who they were then. You seem to have all the answers.

Cost of RFC's starting 11 - just shy of £21 million. Cost of Stevenage's? Go on, guess? Yep, ZILCH!

Yeah, well oxf*rd done Stam, well oxf*rd done.......

windermereROYAL 6 goals in all comps, considering how few games he`s played that's a good tally


It's bloody fantastic. 6 goals in 7 (13), that's a goal every 1.3 games, or 34 goals across a full season.

Obviously I know half of them have come in one game and against League Two opposition, but even before his 3 in 6 (12) was pretty darn good - equivalent to 20 in a season given his minutes.

How he's not started more games is absolutely baffling. He missed a few good chances, struggled with fitness a bit early on and had a reputation from the previous season as not being much of a goalscorer. But his lack of time on the pitch has been one of Stam's biggest failings IMO.

Agreed about Bod especially as Kermorgant has scored just once since his return and frankly has rarely looked like scoring this season.

Don't care that it was league 2 opposition, and Brentford will be a different kettle of fish, but I wouldn't be surprised if Jon Dadi doesn't start at the weekend. Stam strikes me as that kind of a manager.

Zip Kelly and Clement in midfield. Dear God. Does Stam want to be sacked?


Of course he does, easiest £3M he'll ever get paid. Leeds were no mugs in the summer were they?!?


Its appaulling. I like Clement but Kelly offers nothing and slows any counter attack we ever create down. We lose a lot when he plays.

Kelly pissed all over Pelle 'waste of a shirt' Clement tonight.
Were you there?

Just spoke with a Derby fan...It look like Chris Martin is on his way....His nickname is the Wardrobe, apparently the slowest player Derby have ever had....He will fit in well

If you’re not very happy to win something’s wrong with you, a win like that will massively boost confidence levels in which we lacked until Bodvarsson’s goal unstuck us. Winning is a rhythm and beating those in front of you is a very good place to start. We were very clinical tonight, and it’s about time we started winning those 50/50’s because tonight could have gone either way

Well a goal every 3 games, he must be doing something right.

Very true.....Pep up our front line, With Kermogant scoring at a rate of 1 goal every 3 months some fresh blood is needed...The future is getting a little brighter

Don't worry, we'll soon coach that out of him.
