Re: BFTG - Bristol City

My observations: :arrow: Starting with the most important. When it’s hot and sunny Reading fans, WEAR SOME oxf*rd DEODORANT! Absolutely stank in the away end :arrow: Gunter was poor, Blackett looked scared again. It’s weird, I was convinced Blackett was a left sided centre back in a 3 and nothing el...

Re: Difficulties away from home

Weirdly, we used to have similar repeated difficulties with one of our own players. Week in, week out we needed to remind him of the spelling of his own name. Weirder still, half way through reminding him, we assured him that he already knew, sure in fact! Spelt it out to him one more time for good ...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

Thoughts: :arrow: Unlike a previous poster, I rate Swift highly; you can't have a team of cloggers and Swift is the best defence 'un-locker' we have. He had a poor game last nigh though. :arrow: Miazga and Moore looked good, but missed a proper defensive shield kind of player in front. Rinhomota is ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

No, he made the wrong call. Cooper's bettet than at least three of our current options at centre back. A former world class centre back could have helped iron out his weaknesses but he didn't. The man couldn't even be bothered to check up on Cooper when he got injured. Millions of players have show...

Re: Starting XI

We’ve come to a collective realisation on this portal that despite all the attributes, Blackett is not a left back... haven’t we? Also, we know Swift is not a box-to-box midfielder; surely by now we know he’s best playing as a number 10. Which brings us to Aluko. At Fulham he played narrow out wide,...

Starting XI

Now we know Gomes a bit better, the style and the setup, what would be your starting XI, who would be on your bench, and were would you buy/sell? I think we can all agree the Rinomhota experiment at RB won’t happen again. I’d go with... ££ Yiadom Moore Blackett ££ 6 Rinomhota 8 Bacuna Barrow 10 Swif...

If be dissaponted if he left, but the truth is, he’s battling with too many players for one position.

A loan away to the right club would be my preference. A loan to the wrong club could set his career back years...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Steve Stone

We really need a win here, but I fear Forrest will be stubborn to break down and will pounce on any error we make; we’re going to have to attack well. I’d go very similar to the way we set up at Man United, with Baldock in for GMac: Jaakola Yiadom-Moore-Illori-Richards 6 Rino 8 Kelly 10 Swift Harrio...

Re: Tiago llori

The more I think about this, the more I think Illori could go on to have a top career at Sporting Lisbon.

On this basis, I’d accept £2m but insist on £2m if he starts 20 games, £2m if he gets called up to Portugal and maybe a few others. This means that SL only pay what he ends up
being worth...

Re: spaculation - joe hart

Hart is actually excellent with his feet, he’s just not Ederson...

At the beginning of the Season, his career was in free fall, but Burnley seem to have resurrected him. By all accounts, a real team player.

Big yes from me, but won’t happen.

Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

6 month loan deal from Liverpool. If he’s to play central midfield, I’m annoyed and surprised. If he’s to play inside forward then it could be a good move.

Having said that- I’ve never seen him play so fingers crossed!
