Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Kelly didn't play a lot of games and was sub more often then not for Bath city and if the truth be known was not rated. however he certainly proved them wrong now and shows that if the have a manager who likes the way you play and gives you a chance then only positive things can happen. That would ...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Yes, agreed. But I think part of that was frustration and a lack of opportunity having proved himself as capable at Championship level and then being dropped and ignored. And I don't really think the loans he was sent out on were well thought out in terms of suitability for him. A valid point but w...

Re: Speculation - Rickie Lambert and/or Giuseppe Rossi

By the time any player unattached now gets match fit, then it'll either be January or Kermorgant will be fit again.

Was discussed around the Millwall game but the Carabao Cup is not covered. As mentioned elsewhere, the game is one of 3 available on DAZN here in Germany tomorrow night, so there should be plenty of streams around.

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Actually read a bit more into the above. Looks like every midweek game we play we now be viewable on Sky Interactive - from next season at least. which is pretty good for me really, esp as I don't get the chance to go to many away games. And with us having such a huge selection of trips up north to...

Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

I personally think we have 3 players ready for first team exposure and would warrant a place on the subs bench: Sam Smith - The one thing we are missing is a natural goal scorer, not knocking JDB but his two miss kicks in front of goal cost us that match!! A striker is all about being in the right ...

Re: Sam Smith or Jon Dadi Bodvarson

Is pretty ridiculous though - so far he has played through injury at QPR before having to be subbed. Come back from injury and scored at Brum and then had a bit of mare.

Lets give the guy a few more games before we right him off huh?

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

I do worry a bit about the effect on the home midweek games as the atmosphere isn't the best even now. But delighted to be getting the chance to watch the away games I don't know if the technology exists but they could implement a local blackout rule as the NFL does, where games are unavailable wit...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Brilliant planning by Palace. Evidently De Boer was going to play different football to Big Sam, yet they've given him only four games (and truly only two awful performances) in which to turn it around. If you bring in a manager who is going to play a different style you surely have to accept that ...

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

Watched the game on iFollow and frankly still can't figure out how we lost that. We absolutely tore them to shreds at the start of the 2nd half and should have been out of sight. JDB's miss will haunt him for the rest of his career, hit it so badly that it didn't even roll towards the player on the ...

Re: England - the future....

I don't believe in any other major European country would Rashford be struggling to win starts at his club - read down the teamsheets at Bundesliga or La Liga clubs and you find predominantly domestic players. No way that the likes of Rooney or Owen would be getting the gametime now that they did w...

Re: World Cup 2018

Argentina struggling in South American Qualifying. A home draw against Venezuela leaves them in fifth, with two games to go. Next up for them is a game against the team in forth, Peru, lose that and they are looking at a play off place at best. Play-off place is as good as a free pass to the finals...

Re: Next 6 Games

Looking at those fixtures, anything less than 10 points would be a poor return. In isolation you look at each game and think yep we can win that, can I see us winning 5 straight though, no will draw a couple or maybe lose one. Going to say 11 points, undefeated but draws at Millwall and home to Hull...

Re: The 2017/18 season preview/expectation and build up thread

Overall we've made what was a 3rd place squad stronger this year with more players who will fit the way Stam wants us to play. Think it will see us finish in pretty much the same spot at the end of the season. If we could have got a striker with a decent track record at this level in then automatic ...
