What a goal from Holmes that would have been, edge of the box header almost top corner. Similar to Gunnarson a few years ago

It makes a change but it would be daft if they weren’t. Unlike past wins perhaps you couldn’t say “lost to a poor team” “Reading were crap but we were worse”. We were undeniably the better team, dominant in all areas and deservedly won. Had it not been for their keeper and poor finishing it would have been worse for them.

Great performance to bounce back and about time we won. We've played well enough in most of the matches we lost to get a result and we blew Bristol City away second half. Could and perhaps should have been more comfortable than it was but a win is a win.

What impressed me more about today is we didn't crumble when they equalised like Bournemouth did. Bristol City were going for it, we soaked up the pressure and scored twice more. Seem to be getting better at the right time of the season as well.

Everyone played well today.

marlowuk Not sure if someone has already mentioned this but the City Fans Forum preceded their discussions on the game with a 'summary' of their opponents. I have never seen such a comprehensive essay on our team by an opposition website before!! If you haven't done so yet, take a look at - https://www.otib.co.uk/index.php?/topic/209770-reading-%E2%80%93-sat-28th%C2%A0november-1230-%E2%80%93-what-can-we-expect/

It's only failing is that it concludes that Bristol will beat us 2 - 0!!
WOW :shock: that’s amazing.

Sutekh, you’ve got some work to do :wink:

Had a gripe yesterday that our tempo and build up play is slow and lethargic and Ejaria keeps running around in circles and slows the play down.
Well today was the exact opposite!! our build up play and tempo was quick and incisive and Ejaria had a great game and looked to attack and play forward at every oppertunity.
That was on par with the Blackburn game and is the level we need to perform at week in week out to achieve our goal.
Joao's hold up play is unbelievable, and when in the box with his back to goal you just know he's gonna score!! Ejaria was class second half, and the final mention goes out to Olise. The guy is young and a raw talent. He makes mistakes and is a bit naive at times but wow is he some talent!! his crossing into the box and that pass for Meite and our second is what we have been missing, enjoy him whilst we can, as he'll be gone in either the next window or preferably the one after for big money!!

Oh for sure, no denying it’s pretty impressive. If he put that much effort into finding a lady he would probably be drowning in vag.

Just bloody brilliant - a lunchtime TV game sets the tone for the weekend and so happy we bounced back from last week.

All round great performance - very excited for getting back in the ground now!

I did wonder why Ejaria looked so miserable when he scored, maybe the coaching staff have given him a rocket up the backside.

Second game in a row we've been done by a free kick that wasn't, and this time they were offside too. Have to admit my heart sank at that point, especially seeing as it was Wells, but the team's response was FANTASTIC.

I criticised Ejaria after Millwall, but he was well and truly at the races today, if still unable to force a smile :D He, Richards and Olise linked up brilliantly up and down the left and I think there is a lot of potential in Ovie and Olise interchanging.

Holmes is such an upgrade on Esteves defensively that I don't really mind his lack of attacking threat, which we more than make up for in other areas. If his header had gone in (or Morro had scored the tap in he set up) I don't think anyone would have a bad word to say about him.

Brilliant to see what this team is capable of when everything clicks. On our day we really are as good as anyone in this division.

p.s. Chris Martin is pcunt.

I guess when you’re actually good and know you are you feel a bit embarrassed scoring with a lucky deflection.

Just watched the goals again and it’s such a brilliant run by Meite for the third, plus a fantastic run, control and turn by Joao. Don’t tell anyone but he scuffed the shot a little, as if I care.

Half watching the game on replay. Couple of things

The Martin foul was utterly premeditated. Nasty piece of work

The foul for their goal was ridiculous. Laurent just tackled him

Holmes though not offering a threat down the line is a huge threat from set pieces. What you lose from Esteves down the wing you’re probably gaining from Holmes height

Did anyone notice that the commentator on Sky seemed very knowledgeable about our players and dare I say it, a little enthusiastic about us. Tbf he’d probably just done his homework and was pleased to have an exciting game to commentate on but noticeable from the usual negativity we get.
