Re: Worst Reading XI

I was there for that game. What fixture did we have next that caused us to rest players?

Re: Is Kelly off?

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.

Chelsea recalled him from Leeds, aparently he’s now, belatedly, likely to come here.

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!

Praise for the midfield is reserved solely for the Gomes games, as is the OP about how we set up.

Re: Tiago llori

There are few players who I’ve wanted to succeed as I have Illori. He has SO MUCH potential. However, £3m and his happiness is hard to ignore. I’d then be adamant we kept Moore, and played him with Blackett (right footer and left footer) or Osho. If we could get £3m, I’d hope at least some of that w...

Re: The midfield

I quite like our midfield nowadays. Been the most functional part of the team recently Rinomhota has made a huge difference. He’d be mine and no doubt many others first name on the teamsheet Eza if he returns to the levels he showed before injury (3 months out now), Rino and Swift in the 10 role wo...

Re: The midfield

I can’t belive I missed Bacuna!

I see him best stuffed to the ‘8’ role, which means we have (in my opinion) 3 players for one position, and 6 in total for 3 places.

LOL at the idea Kelly is too small to carry the ball! A lack of height has been the key for some of the best dribblers in history!

The midfield

So we know by know that Gomes likes to use a double pivot + 3 attacking midfielders. I’d also say that - and we had no real idea at the beginning of the season- that the midfield is our strength... But what is the best player combination? At ‘6’ Ezetolahi might well be the best suited to the sitting...

Re: BFTG United (A)

I'm shocked. WOW. Lost to a penalty and VAR, and to a very good goal, with better possession, more passes against one of the best teams in the country who were at home and in form. WOW. I'm not going to single out players though, because today we played as a team and individual performances almost ...

Re: BFTG United (A)

From what I saw on a schonky stream Utd sat back, we passed crisply but were untroubled, gave the ball away too easily in the attacking third and didn’t have a striker working the box. Really needed Bod in there. Need a large, dirty striker. Madine from Cardiff on loan would work but it looks like ...

Alex Smithies.

Etheridge was due to go to the Asia cup, giving Smithies his chance, but he decided to stay and play for Cardiff.

Excellent keeper, not getting game time.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

From the Swansea forum: I see Reading had seven corners, and didn't score from them , they must be bad or we have at last learnt our lesson. I believe we scored with each of our first 3 goal attempts. It was a ruthless performance, yes, but I felt we have played better football at times this season ...
