Just wondering what you're basing this on? He hasn't exactly been playing regularly...

Re: Gunter

Whilst I was thinking about it I had a look at Gunter's crossing accuracy stats: This season it's 9%, compared to 56% for Blackett and 25% for Obita (from 23, 18 and 8 crosses respectively). Across their Reading Championship careers it works out roughly like this: Player / 90 min Equiv / crosses / ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by going for the "lack of 1st half goals" record

Would be tempted to put Quinn on the bench as left back cover. Stam must really hate him though. I really rate Quinn. I know it's been a while since he's played, but surely he can't be any worse than Beerens or Blackett? I'm beginning to get really oxf*rd off with Stam, his stubborness and refusal ...

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Yup. And I still don't understand how we made it the play off final playing the same dreary negative football. I will gladly bet a lot that if we play the same way throughout this season we will finish an awful lot lower than 3rd. I used to love the SSC way of playing. Get it out to the wing, take ...

Re: Reading v Hull Prediction Thread

A 2-0 comfortable game for me but a late one from Hull requires an injury time goal forms to be sure of the points 1-0 HT 2-0 2-1 3-1 FT If Dadi starts I think he'll score the opener, Aluko, Barrow If he doesn't start, whoever is the "number 9" We score 3 goals in one game? I'll have a pi...

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: Next seasons kit choice?

What do these shirts fit like? i.e. do you normally wear a large, but need to get an XL for it not look obscene?

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

I rate Wagner as a manager very highly, but barely any of the signings they have made have any prem experience at all. Mooy is a good player, but again no Prem experience. The strikers they have signed likewise, may be good but haven't played in that league. Tom Ince is a complete head scratch - no...

Re: Do you have another team?

I find it a bit of an "eye rolling" thing to say that "I don't have a connection with the club" when you don't even go. I had a season out and like you I just felt a disconnect. I didn't know the players, barely knew the squad, I wouldn't have recognised them in the street, etc....

Re: Do you have another team?

No second team as such, but I echo the feelings about football. I don't feel the same connection to the club anymore, didn't renew my season ticket of the last 20 or so years and only went to one match this season. I think my apathy also coincided with a few seasons of dreadful football and results ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Huddersfield Town v Reading, Play Off Final, 29 May 2017 (Wembley)

Anyone up for breaking into the stadium and rearranging the bags to spell Tinpot ? That'll be a challenge, have you ever tried rearranging the letters in ROYALS to read TINPOT? Wish Reading were still known as the Biscuitmen though, much more impressive and could "bend" round the corners ...
