Re: Clement

In the Championship, for Reading, in his breakthrough season, Shane Long scored 23 League, 2 Cup goals and had 14 assists, in 4,413 minutes played, at an overall rate of a goal every 177 minutes played; a goal/assist every 113 minutes. No question that he achieved “a 20-goal season”. He also scored ...

Re: Clement

I mean, he’s almost 32 and not lot has changed. I'd take him in a heartbeat. Still think he'd be good for 20_ Championship goals per season If thats anything like the 10 you were sure he'd score in the PL we should get a good 12-16 out of him then. Ian go back and check my prediction I said 10 as a...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Atrocious enough to finish third and get 0-0 at Wembley in the PO Final? Neither semi final or the final suggested that the team had any calibre. Remind me how many chances we created and goals were scored in 270 minutes of football. I think maybe you miss the point. Mostly I hated that season. I a...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Stam inherited a pretty atrocious side tbh. The had to sell 2 of its better players immediately The side’s collapse was almost as baffling as his own inability to do something about it Atrocious enough to finish third and get 0-0 at Wembley in the PO Final? I always felt it was a "false third&...

Re: Clement

Not a chance does Long count. We signed him at about 18 and he was basically straight in the First Team squad. It was around 6 months for Long to feature in the first team I think and then it was as a sub. He was still playing academy games even after making his debut. He was obviously seen to be t...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

With hindsight you can probably say it all started almost a year ago with the second half performance at home to Cardiff when Reading threw away 2 point unnecessarily, after that it just collapsed into the long trail of generally inept performances and dreadful results that PC is still trying to av...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Well, first, Stam "inherited a side" that had just finished third Clement inherited a side that had plummeted and looked odds-on for relegation Stam's 38 games yielded 39 points=39/38 which is 1.026 ppg But that doesn't tell the true story The 18 games up to his sacking yielded just 9 poin...

Re: Clement

Well Long "couldn't kick a ball" and "would never be a footballer" when he arrived, and for about four seasons (according to HNA) So either he was secretly swapped overnight or someone taught him how to play. Not sure, but in terms of total transfer fees, he may be our biggest WB...

Also, seeing just 15 wins in 62 games over almost 15 months, makes it utterly clear how little the fault is Clement’s

A Wigan - W 1-2 A Leeds - D 1-1 H Stoke - D 0-0 H Sheffield United - W 3-2 A Rotherham - L 1-0 H Middlesboro - D 0-0 9 Points, would be magic.

Would hope for 9-10 points + from that lot Thought it was a bit harder than that tbh The Wigan game is very important. Win that and it’s seven from nine and a little bit of daylight. Lose with Leeds away to follow and the games start looking very difficult. Very much agree. A win might very well tu...

10 7 Points (Stam's last ten games)
10 8 Points (Clement's first ten games)
10 9 Points (Clement's next ten games, this season)
07 7 Points (This run of ten games, three games to go, Wigan, Leeds, Stoke)
