Re: Roy Beerens - Unsung?

Typical winger. Soft in defence, goes missing, but has the beatung of a full back, can whip in a good cross and scores a few important goals. Don't think he hugely fits our shape... better in a traditional 4-4-2 with two strikers to aim at when he hits the byline. Decent impact sub though. I like h...

Re: Shane Griffin to Cork City

2 year deal. Not sure how this works out with the transfer window and so-on - but this is the Irish pre-season, so it may work differently.

Re: Back from the game - Ipswich

Pretty dismal performance and were lucky to come out with something. Gunter had an opportunity to get a foot in just before the shot came which he didn't take and were taken apart too easily for the second goal. Fairly lucky with the Obita goal (thought the keeper should have done better) but glad t...

Re: BFTG - United (A)

Other than the horror first fifteen, 75-80 minutes. We were clearly over awed to begin with and didn't start playing until that quick goal kick that seemed to make us realise that we can actually play from the back - even against United. First goal was slick passing that should have been stopped but...

:lol: at you deeming something irrelevant because you personally haven't heard about it or don't understand it. But all this "expected goal" nonsense is surely based on a fixed conversion rate of chances which I presume is based on an average. Or, as one of the posters on NSC put it, if w...

Re: Man Utd (A)

Anyone who's done United away before know the best way to get from Piccadilly to Old Trafford? I think last time I used the metro. It was a bit chaotic coming back though due to she sheer number of people I usually use the metro and will be again on Saturday. It is absolutely mental (unless you arr...

Re: Summer Rebuild 2016/2017

If we don't sell anyone, this window is a tough one to call. Ideally we'd get a centre back for cover, but not sure who would move to us solely to cover McShane and Moore who have been generally a very good pairing. Midfield and Wing looks well covered, RB and LB are covered, though I agree only Ob...

Re: Rumour - Tiago Ilori

Don't know anything about him so take my opinion with the pinch of salt it deserves but I'm always uneasy when break our transfer record. Especially considering he couldn't get a game at Villa last season.

Re: Summer Rebuild 2016/2017

I think we might need another left back - Obita isn't suited there and neither does Blackett really, but that might be because he gets isolated by Beerens when it comes to defending. Yeah obita showed his quality at left back when he had McAnuff in front of him a few years back. I think Obita's don...

Re: U23's & The Checkatrade Trophy - Wembley

I've boycotted the games local to me (not Reading's) because I didn't like it, if we got to Wembley I'd have to rethink but considering we're playing Yeovil again I'm not sure it's going to matter that much
