Re: BFTG Bees

Must have been watching a different game to me. Brentford manager Dean Smith: "Two of our boys have been tackled from behind and we get nothing. "Three of their players were already on bookings and some of the tackles were just allowed to go on. All we are asking for is consistency. I did...

That was pretty bloody awful..lucky to escape with a point.. The 3 in midfield clearly weren't working, Kelly was either to high or too wide to be effective. Edwards looks pedestrian. Only Joey came out of the first half with any credit. Really don't know what Bodvarrson is supposed to offer. Doesn...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

The issue is, he's got absolutely no basis for his ramblings against SJM and NH, and his insistence that we have rejected lucrative naming rights bids because of SJM's ego is so far wide of the mark. These two men didn't just take us to the next level, they took us up about three levels, and in SJM...

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Wrote a long reply but have lost it you readers will be glad to know-it was mainly to agree with leon for this and his earlier posts.. In essence it said that Gunter can't defend and that if we make more chances in a game the odd misses don't matter-whilst we rely so much on trying to keep a clean ...

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Wasn't there, but reading these comments it seems like the same old same old from last season. Ponderous build up and no cutting edge? A passing/possession game is only any good if played at pace, otherwise it is just tedious and gives the oppo too much time to get themselves back into shape and th...

Re: Upgrade for Gilksey

Gilksey won us the Simod Cup, turned the game right around and terrified the Luton defenders with his pace and direct runs.

Re: CONFIMRED: Sone Aluko

More recently, of course, we had Vydra who very quickly became their target (because of the loan fee and perceived wages). Bullshit. Vydra was a "target" because he came with expectations that he would replicate his Watford form as a clinical finisher, however as it turned out couldn't hi...

I hope the price tag doesn't end up a mill stone around his neck. If he doesn't get off to a good start fairly pronto, I can see our boo boys getting on his back very quickly. I remember the stick that our big money signing Caskey got in his first couple of years with us (no account taken of the set...

Re: Rumour: Sone Aluko

I guess this demonstrates that Financial Fair Play is finally dead and buried? - not that it ever existed for 'big' clubs like QPR who seemed to be allowed to breach the regulations at will and without effective sanction.

Re: BFTG - Birmingham City

Did you go on Saturday or base that off previous performances? Clearly the sarcasm was at too high a level for some! It was a dig at the idiots who continually criticise Gunter and everything he does. Look back through my posts and you will see clearly that I don't subscribe to that school of thoug...

Re: BFTG Millwall

There are some fcking morons around if you genuinely believe that was boring. I thought it was one of the better games, Reading dominated, actually scored a few goals and were pressing Millwall throughout and it was only in the 2nd half that they really got more into the game (their goal in the 1st...

I second this. She is superb. She's a friend of the 'fan' and understands our psyche! As such, she is a great asset for Reading Football Club.
