Re: RUMOUR - Gomes wanted

Moved Reading from 23rd to 20th. Premier League clubs now want him. Seems legit. :roll: :lol: Did a great job turning round our fortunes, though we shouldn’t forget he was supported in Jan better than any other relegation threatened club manager (4 prem players + Nelson) Clubs around us think we bo...

The relegation scare has distracted us from asking a serious question:

Why do we not have any vegetable + orgasm related chants?

Re: BFT(final)G

Excuse the RTG but we were VERY VERY good Yes I know, nothing to play for etc etc but seriously for the first half I was sitting there wondering if Brum were even on the pitch. Youngsters were fantastic! Never saw Barrett play before. Loader was class not just in the way he attacked but reminds me o...

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

He'll do fine, just needs a few more games and it'll click for him.

Horrid to say but the double injuries and our now safe position are just perfect for him. Hopefully he will start our remaining two games and build up his confidence.

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

It’s funny but I see it differently to many. I felt we were by far the better team and deserved to win. It’s not necessarily the case that we were amazing but they were very poor (or we made them look very poor). They offered nothing and the equaliser really came out of nowhere. It seems to me that ...

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...

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...
