Re: Reading v Boro Predictions Thread

Both teams will score in this one.

2-1 to us (Kermie and Beerens for us). Bamford for them

Re: In or Out?

I think he's walking a very thin tightrope now. He needs win and one heavy defeat will be it.

At least if it happens then we can get Pardew back! We played some cracking football under him (forgetting the West Ham move).

Re: In or Out?

Whoever loses between us and Boro next week sacks their manager. If a draw then both get sacked. Any less than 6 points from these next 2 and he's out So we beat Boro and draw with Forest and he’ll get the sack? Do you actually believe that? Yep. Our home forms been pathetic this season and if it w...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

The reason why we've been struggling this season and why we were awful for 80 minutes today are so evident. We're playing a team with no balance in midfield and we signed 2 midfielders more than we needed. We're so much better in midfield with Swift, Kelly and Evans. Swift links into forward areas w...

Re: Relegation

I'd argue that we are too good to go down if we had a few decent fit forwards. But we don't and if you don't score goals then you can't win games. If you can't win enough games then you'll be relegated. We've been poor but we've hardly been battered in games and in most of them we've lost by odd goa...

Re: Sheffield Utd v RDG Predictions

Our record there is fantastic over the last 15 years or so. But I have a slightly bad feeling normal service will be resumed.

2-0 defeat

Re: Free coaches to Sheffield.

How many have we sold? I'd be shocked if we don't sell over 1000 for this. I was thinking maybe 2K as it's a cheap away day for those from near Reading.

Re: In or Out?

A heavy defeat yesterday I think would have been the end for him. I still think one in the next 2-3 games could be as well. Though yesterdays win bought him 4-5 more games.

Delighted he's made the change, but will he stick or switch things vs Sheffield United next week?

Re: In or Out?

I'm in the out camp or if he stays Stam has to very much raise his game this season. His first mistake was a very much understated pre-season with his behind closed doors games, only one public friendly and in my view he was 2 or 3 games short in bring fully prepared. This was confirmed with a lous...

Re: Stam's comments - only a matter of time now

Isn't the obvious comment that Reading's strategy is dependent on having a decent forward on the pitch - i.e. Yann Kermogant. Any club that wants to be successfull needs to have a decent striker on the pitch. It has to be the strategy of every club in football. You can complain about why someone el...
