URZZZZ
Zip That’s the worst side we have put out this season. I’m going to watch the Villa game. I just don’t want to watch Baldock running around to no good effect. Olise just has to start.


I don’t think Olise can start three games in a week. The only time he has this season, he was poor against Coventry and Preston so it isn’t too surprising

Like QPR, Pauno may have earmarked this game as the easiest of the next three. We may see Swift and Olise start on Tuesday (the hardest one) and then just Olise against Huddersfield as Swift may not be able to play more than one game. It makes sense to me


It’s certainly our best chance of a win in the next few games which is why I would like to see Olise starting.

The other two games in January are home and away against Coventry and Preston-two fixtures that one might expect to pick up points from but they are two teams that we have already lost against recently with almost our full squad to choose from!!!

You sure about that?

Coventry was missing Swift, Yiadom, Araruna, Meite and Ejaria

Preston was missing the same plus Moore.

That's four to five first team players out


Wouldn't have counted Yiadom and Araruna but your point still stands.
I suppose those games came when we had been flying high and any injuries didn't feel as drastic as they do now.

My brother, who is into horse racing in a big way, said that it is always the good horses that get injured and in Reading's case he said "It couldn't be Baldock or Aluko could it?"
Happy Christmas.



This!

Barney So...we have a player rumoured to be worth around £8m - £10m...and he can't get into THAT team ????

That is ridiculous.


As is overplaying him and adding him to our ever-growing list of long-term injuries, many of which have probably occurred due to the relentless schedule of matches with insufficient time in between games for muscles to be able to properly recover from the demands placed on them,

We lost 4 in a row and the chat was all about being screwed by injuries!

It felt pretty bad.


And this!

I decided to wait and see the line-up before deciding whether to hand over the tenner. Seen the team. Not remotely optimistic so giving this a miss.
I hope Dellor asks Paunovic about these injuries. They have reached silly levels.


Hmm

That's not very positive!


Sorry mate.


I was counting on you!

I neither know nor care, but isn't he a young fit athlete being paid to play football ? This is his job isn't it ?

Demands !!! Professional footballers !!! I assume you are on the wind up. Demands are folks working shed load of hours more then footballers for a fraction of the pay.

Great start from Aluko. Meite or Joao would have been away

I think that's the problem - more about the squad than the selection

maybe three teams could do better with this number of first team injuries.

Few clubs can sustain 4 players for every position.
