Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

McIntyre is apparently a doubt for Boro. Not training due to concussion.

It. Never. Ends.

Re: New Manager

Given the club's precarious position it's staggering to the point of being unbelievable that PC was given the boot without their being an immediate replacement lined up. Very few teams in history have performed better when rudderless. The buck stops firmly with Howe (a terrible restart and no way t...

Re: New Manager

Bruce and Hughes would be appalling choices, In my dreams, this is the decisive and proactive move of a new CEO who has a plan to revitalise the club. I cannot think Howe would have done this straight away without at least having someone is mind and, more than likely having already agreed a deal tha...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Ipswich Town (h) sponsored by Orlando Sa

:shock: Meite overhead kick :shock: Meite reminds of a young Thierry Henry. When he first came to Arsenal he was a bit clumsy and lost, played out on the wing, but in his third season he really blossomed as a striker, found an eye for goal and the rest is history. We’ll sell him in 2 years for £30m...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I wonder how much of a connection Parkinson would have with the current fanbase, I'm 28 and when I started watching Reading Parkinson was on his way out of the club. I am aware of his status as a club legend but the reality is that I have no real affection towards him, I would suggest the same is p...

Re: Vital week

They've all been crucial weeks. This summer HAD to be about Clement working out what he had and what he needed, first to consolidate us to a team that can comfortably stay in the division - and then to build us into a force that can challenge for mid table/promotion places. On the evidence of what i...

Re: CONFIMRED: Darren Sidoel

The previous form that nearly got us promoted to the Premier League? Before nearly getting us relegated to League 1, yes. Not sure he did that but you create your own narrative to suit its cool. You don't think we nearly got relegated, or you don't think it had to do with players we did/didn't sign...

Re: Summer Transfers

If you look at our squad and transfers so far, the words that come to mind are - 'seriously underwhelming'. We're into pre-season, are still lacking good players in several crucial positions and much of the deadwood in the squad appear to going no-where. Changing the Manager is one thing, perhaps a...

Re: Lewis Grabban to return...

But the business they've already done this summer suggests they're pulling a Wolves: In: Tobias Figueiredo - Sporting Lisb...

Re: Back from the shambles - Brum

He's lost the dressing room, he has to go. It's that simple.

They're not playing for him. They're not really playing at all. Whatever it is he's asking of them they're not interested.

If this carries on we're going down. Change needed urgently.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by 5 games without a win

Aluko was śhit against us for Fulham. No idea why we signed him. Kebe was 10x a player and a man than he'll ever be. Aluko was a classic last minute overpay panic signing. Fulham must still be laughing. I know the £7m+ figures were nonsense but, honestly, if we paid more than £250k for him we were ...

Re: Sometimes Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by 5 games without a win

How about two back and one forward followed by another two back ? We must be about 18 back from last season at this point.

He's lost the dressing room. They're not playing for him. They're not even playing.

He needs to be out on his ear tomorrow morning. This is beyond embarrassing.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by a christmas sized helping of apathy

Yep. We've spent supposedly 18 million on transfer this summer after finishing 3rd last season and we are languishing joint 18th in the division. There are no excuses with that kind of money spent and only a few injuries, we are not depleted. Its just utterly abysmal from the players and Stam and i...
