Re: Worst Reading XI

It’s not the worst players in an 11. It’s the the actual XI that stepped on to the pitch as a team Ah....I see...Remember some of the games in the 75-76 season...Some horror shows then. Difficult to pick a team and a single performance all those years ago. The last 18 months has been utterly horrib...

Re: Derby v Reading - - Match 28 Prediction League

Lampard County have been anything but impressive to me.
They looked woeful at Leeds and they gave Leeds so much time on the ball, and space.

I think we will win...

FT Derby 1-3 Reading

Bacuna 11

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

I always felt Clement was a fraud, it's easy to use words that the fans want to hear. Gomes seems to mean what he says on the other hand. Interesting that Swift and Kelly both said that they were pleased to be going back to playing the football the team were most comfortable playing, which really m...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

This is where I am, without the initial excitement. I don't have the energy to be conned and disappointed again. Plus if largely the same players who got us into this mess just pull their finger out and get us out of it comfortably, to be honest I kinda just resent them even more. Why would it be a...

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

Technically our best 45 minutes in the first half since the last time under Stam when we beat Forest 3-1 at home in 2017. We closed down and pressed better that at anytime under Clement, our positioning and support team play was good and kept a good shape....what a difference. Whether or not Forest ...

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

Ref has let way too much go. Richards could easily have gone earlier. The likes of Fox have had the green light to put in some awful tackles.

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Whatever the reason, my point was you can't just push players out wide and expect them to play like traditional wingers. Players don't (in general) have that skill set any more. It's very true....I would love to have got Ben Woodburn on loan from Liverpool. Seen him play loads of times..he is now b...

Anything less than 8, and they’re still in the contest though.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/46807185 Daniel Levy announces that Spurs new stadium will not be ready until 'at least March'. Which probably means next season now.

Re: Confirmed Lewis Baker on Loan

Last couple of loans have gone badly for him. Maybe this one will go better. Very talented player, just needs the right manager to get the most out of him. Saying that, the squad building this month makes little sense. I see how we could fit in one of the two loanees, but they seem to be very simil...

Loader? Really? I've seen enough of him quite frankly to see he needs to be shipped out on loan and nowhere near our first team.

Re: JOSE GOMES' BARMY ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It has to begin with a win against Forest. We have to start scoring goals, Playing one upfront isn’t imho enough. I would like to see two strikers played ....preferably Bod and Loader. However they need a much better service than they are currently receiving. So do we play narrow and scrap our unde...
