Re: BFTG - Brentford

Ok so there's no question that this was a good performance by some great players under a very good manager and a system that is working. Rino, Eja, Baker all fantastic, as was everyone else. Good deserved win. Back to Eja - it's amazing how a moment of flair from him can suddenly spur us on out of n...

Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

He definitely wasn’t happy under Clement. He really didn’t perform for him at all. Whether that was an attitude issue, or PCs tactics/set up, it’s difficult to say. I’d have happily seen him sold in Jan tbh He has been a real asset in the last 10 games or so. Massively improved, and a lot of credit...

Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

Gomes' tactics Spot on it seems. 5 at the back, a pacey and a strong player up front who caused them havoc when they had the chance. At 2-2 we hand it to him as a brilliant stroke of genius. BUT at 2-1 I was cursing him for doing the same old bullshit of trying to hold onto 1-0. How many times have...

Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

Funny one. My talking points: First Goal Completely against the run of play but it's what we had planned and we executed it brilliant. Yet another ball to Barrow, use his pace, and Meite in the right place with a great finish. Gomes' tactics spot on. Gomes' tactics Spot on it seems. 5 at the back, a...

Re: 51 Academy players

The club love to bang on about how great our academy is with 51 players now played for the first team. In reality how many have been any good? For every Gylfi, Pearce, Obita ect.. There have been loads who have played a few games and disappeared to non league football. The reality is 4 of the last ...

Re: Swift to Leeds

I feel somewhat vindicated that a manager as good as Bielsa is willing to spend so much on him after I was one of the few to say he's a decent player. In our recent few games since Gomes he's had some good goals and assists. Sloppy annoying pass here or there yes, but he's come up with the goods. We...

Re: BFTG - PNE

Good game. Cant' fault a single player. Swift's pass brilliant. Both goals down to Barrow - his pace is electric and as I've always said it terrifies defences. Anyone would've thought we were the playoff chasing team. McShane - good to see him back and putting his decent effort in, but he obviously...

Re: Difficulties away from home

Weirdly, we used to have similar repeated difficulties with one of our own players. Week in, week out we needed to remind him of the spelling of his own name. Weirder still, half way through reminding him, we assured him that he already knew, sure in fact! Spelt it out to him one more time for good...

Difficulties away from home

I often travel around the country sightseeing with Reading friends and family and the following happens every time I go out. I find that wherever we go there are numerous enquiries by the locals regarding our origin, so we usually end up having to engage in tedious dialogue with them to answer their...

Re: BFTG Stoke

It's a team of footballers. To come back with a point from an away game and be disappointed with how any of us played sh...

Hasn't Swift scored 3 goals recently in not many games? Two from free play and one set piece?

Re: What points will we finish on and position

Everyone is worrying for nothing.

We definitely won't go down.

To do that, we'd have to finish in the bottom three.

Which might happen.

Oh.

Delayed BFTG Went expecting very little but came away buzzing. The players wanted it and I thought worked hard. They tried to pull things off which didn’t always work but they never stopped trying which ultimately got us a much-needed win. I don’t think any player played badly. Some played better t...

Re: Bftg- Wigan (h)

1) Typical scary defence moments continue. Why? 2) I take back what I said about Martinez being the best keeper I've seen. Great saves but that ridiculous throw out for their second? He does it too often. Still the best keeper we've had in a long time. 3) Loader showed the fight and passion that wen...
