Re: Dave Edwards' book

Heard him talking about this book on the radio last week.
An articulate person who probably struggles with conversation on long coach journeys up North with the not-so-articulate normal footballers.

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

Very entertaining game . A win-win game for Liverpool. Man Utd losing would have meant Liverpool being just 4 points behind them with City up next for them. Arsenal losing means that Liverpool leapfrog them into the top 4. As for the game-clinical finishing by Man Utd taking their very few chances w...

Re: Stams Tactics

Having spoken to an ex- Reading player in his view the problem is that you can't play 5 across the back with wing backs as well as having 2 wingers. If you play that system you need 2 very creative proper midfielders not wingers you try to move inside. I don't think this is right at all. Firstly, w...

Re: Gunter to Sunderland?

I would jizz in my pants in excitement if this were true. But seeing as it's obviously kes bullshit I shall stay disappointed. Perfect fit for Sunderland's current side though. Utterly overrated and overpaid mediocre player without a winning bone in his body. Strange how so many people, who probabl...

Re: BFTG Wednesday.

I do wonder if there is certain age group of young supporters around 16-18 (i.e. the seat bangers) who feel more entitled to success than older Reading fans. They would have been children around the 05/06-06/07 era and grew up watching the best Reading team of all time - and haven't really seen us ...

Re: Relegation

If we lose the next 2, will anyone start getting worried? Still 78 points to play for after these 2 games. Expect Barnsley to park the bus. Away games are never easy. It would be worrying if we lost those two as it would drag us ever closer to the relegation zone but surely we have enough in our sq...

Re: BFTG Wednesday.

Is Stam actually building something? Takes time for players to gel and get an understanding of each others games. Past weeks there's been signs of improvement. But will our owners feel the same as they see last season's very good start for the manager as history as we now toil in the lower reaches ...

Clement will be a star Pele was a star. Our Pelle is this season's version of Piazon (who now plays for Fulham Reserves)-he looks as though he could be a good footballer but is generally ineffective. The same Piazon who broke his leg in the middle of August? If he is back fit might explain why he i...

tbf most fans would rather see their team win a boring game 1-0 than throw away a three goal lead obvs was delighted to see them fook it up (and also 'surprisingly unsurprised' they did this....)

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Another terrific defensive performance from the once mighty reds. Don’t know what it will take for them to be able to defend like a top team should be able to defend but until Klopp does find a solution they will never win anything and only ever achieve the occasional 4th place in the league. That ...

Pre match views from the Bolton end http://the-wanderer.co.uk/boards/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=26690 Seems the key issue is that they're worried about a defensive crisis with Mark Little, Antonee Robinson, big doubts and Beevers suspended. That's good news-if Beevers is out Bartley may play at the ba...
