Re: BFTG - Stevenage

Good for Gunter and McShane. However I think most of us would prefer at least some explanation or insight as to why everything has gone so tits up this season. We just want someone to give some reason to why McShane is suddenly half the player he was last season in ability and speed. Why is it sudde...

Re: Could Stam be contracted to his current style of play?

Apparently there was a comment on the radio during the Birmingham match ( i didn't hear it I was at the match) concerning the style of play being so slow that our fitness may be suffering. We aren't playing fast committed football for 90 minutes each week ( that part is certainly true) and as a con...

Re: Gourlay out.

Serious question. How does this FFP work? I mean Wolves seem to be spending ridiculous amounts and the question of FFP never seems to arise. We don't seem to be able to spend ten quid and FFP is used as the reason (excuse?) I thought it was how you balance your books? So it begs the questions 1) do ...

Re: Back the boys and make some Noise

So the general feeling is the players are over paid and undeserving of our praise, vocal support and I totally get that - but We support Reading ! No matter who wears the shirt - when I say we get behind the team - its not the individual players of whom will probably move on and may or may not even...

Re: Back the boys and make some Noise

I’ve noticed that the West Stand start booing and griping a lot quicker than the rest of the Mad Stad. The Dolan stand seem a bit more understanding and get behind the team more even when it’s going wrong. The East stand seem just content to wind up the visiting fans, some don’t even watch the matc...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by a nice quiet evening out

Not a boring game but it gets boring throwing games away and it will be boring listening to Stam tell us that we should have taken our chances.

Notice that on their forum they're buying up south west home seats and smatterings of lower west as they've sold out their allocation.

Re: BFTG - Middlesbrough

Let's be honest, with a view to our performances at the moment, if we had no manager at all but someone said 'look lads, go out and play to your strengths and enjoy yourselves would we 1) get the same results i.e lose (but maybe by a larger margin) or maybe get the couple of wins against teams we re...

Is Stam incapable of changing tactics


No he's not.
When we play well ( Birmingham, Leeds, Villa) he changes the team and formation next game.
If an individual plays well (Kelly, Evans etc), he's on the bench next game.

Once again another team and formation.
Obviously doesn't work at all so let's look forward to a defensive change at 88 minutes.

Re: Phil Parky's blue and white army

Low crowd mainly due to encroaching into Saturday night and also on Sky, but maybe there's more excitement to be had sitting at home staring at the carpet.

In any walk of life, if you have had even moderate but consistent success you haven't been spoilt you've earned it.

However if you then start to not do as well, you've basically gone downhill.

Re: Renewed pessimism/interest

Good point from top flight regarding riskier passing. Around me, when someone tries a really incisive pass but it goes wrong, most people say 'oh, hard luck, good idea etc' . They don't go f...ing useless w@nker. They sincerely want to see good football. Secondly, what I really don't get is that Sta...

Interesting... My story is this. My daughter and I are relatively new to Reading FC having started in 2011 and have been to virtually every home match since and probably about 10-12 aways per season. Now my wife has started going since just before Stam's tenure. The missus is still eager to go every...

Re: BFTG - Birmingham City

Listened to BBC West Midlands on the way back and the twatish commentator said it wasn't a good result against the most boring dull team in football (as is also mentioned on their forum). Now I'm no expert but that was not a dull display. Plenty of good forward searching passes, chances and two goal...

Re: BFTG - Birmingham City

My two pennies worth. Praise where it's due after a lot of negativity. I thought Blackett was immense today as was Moore. Bacuna and Barrow have brought in the extra pace that was missing which gave Kelly a lot more Impetus. ( I felt previously that Swift was starting to hold play up more and more b...
