Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

as long as he performs and the team is competitive, I'll support him. spin is spin and we have to accept that. people conveniently forget that Rooney and Gerrard, so called loyal/badge kissing players both made similar moves to leverage more money from their clubs. at a push, I'd rather a bit of hon...

Re: Rival Watch

I imagine Leeds will start well, their fans will decide they'll win the league and be playing Champions League football within three years as is their right, they'll then stutter, then go on another good run where there's talk amongst their fans of them doing a Leicester next season, only for them ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

So regarding the Aston Villa debacle, can anyone confirm where the funds and running capital for Reading are located?

Do we have holding companies based in mainland China?

This seems to be a pivotal issue for Chinese owners/investors

Re: Gourlay

also, the comments from the panel on BBCRB to have a more visible owner - is that really what people want? An owner who appears in the press all the time and makes the most of their ownership generating PR and profile? literally no interest in hearing from owners. but it certainly wouldn't hold it ...

Re: Gourlay

I only caught a bit of the interview and what struck me was that he talked a lot and didn't actually say very much. I know that this tends to be what CEOs do, so that they don't leave any hostages to fortune, however some of the inane statements should have been challenged by Dellor. also, the comme...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Poisoned chalice? Lol. One bad season does not make this job a poisoned chalice. Also, it certainly worked for Newcastle when they appointed Alan Sheerer :? Just for clarification, I didn't say the job was a poisoned chalice, I said the role I was describing was - ie a short term appointment til th...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

I've been mulling this over and some internal candidates could work. My suggestion would be someone who already took us close last season with his goals, namely Yann Kermorgant. He's got a wide experience of different footballing cultures and styles, has the right kind of leadership qualities and s...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (h) sponsored by Tony & Barry Wagstaff

:shock:

Worst night I can remember

Should have been 6 or 7 to the blades.

I have 3 issues with Stam...
1. Team selection
2. Tactics
3. Motivation

Clement.... not a footballer
VdB..... ?

A team for our times I guess

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

[/quote] I agree. To put the boy on and then take him off after having a mare of 15 minutes was completely destructive to the players progression as a Reading football club employee and totally selfish and in favour of Stam's own agenda. But Stam covered it up well in the interview, as always.[/quot...

Re: Gunter

My view: The 'media' bang on about how he is a great athlete ect ect. yet his performances underwhelm. Agreed he is not the worse performer at the moment, but for someone with his pedigree, he should be so much better. His positional sense always seems off to me and he doesn't contribute enough goin...

Re: BFTG Millwall

Let's get this straight, Stam choked at Wembley last season. I've dwelt a lot on what happened that day and I cannot get away from the fact that we didn't set ourselves up in any way to get a result that day. There was barely any forward motion, no penetration whatsoever and a lot of listless backw...

Re: BFTG Millwall

First away game for donkeys years. Slightly surprised at the change in approach early on, but the lack of vertical attacking intent remains and we don't seem to have an identity from game to game. I'd also say that what I find strange at them moment is that we have good players, but we are not a goo...

Hmmmm.... as far as I was concerned the negative crowd reaction was to the decision to sub Kelly for Ilori. IE: directed at the manager's decis ion, not the players/team.

Re: BFTG Swansea

What frustrates the hell out of me is that we sometimes create an imbalance during the possession/passing moments and look like we could exploit it with a change in rhythm or key forward pass...... but we don't.... inevitably the player, having gotten into a promising space, turns back and starts ag...
