Re: The League of 4

Strange things can happen and while it maybe unlikely, given previous form, anyone who thinks you can just sit back and relax for the final 270 minutes of this god awful miserable season because other teams will obviously continue to struggle needs their head examined. It’s a unique madness of foot...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (h) sponsored by Brian Howard

I would have taken a draw at BC before kick off, as I would in all our recent away fixtures that secured a point, but I'm not buying that, in our current form, most Reading fans expectations for Monday are "low" If we can beat Preston we can beat a Baggies team that is going to make the pl...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

I don't understand why Gunter backs off so much when someone has a go at him, time and time again they got through us on our right hand side in the first half. He doesn't seem to allow this sort of situation happen to him when he's at LB I'd put that down to the way Bristol were set-up to play. The...

From Despair To Where? A recap

Rotherham 40pts
Birmingham (h)
West Brom (a)
Middlesbrough (h)


They're not winning two of those.

It's over.


Agreed.

If they somehow stay up it won't be at our expense. We won't lose our 3 remaining games and they won't win all theirs. The end.

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

I think that’s a little harsh RR Our recent results tell you we aren’t miles away. We’ve massively improved at ball retention and movement, though of course there is still plenty of work to be done, least of all in the next 3 games Quite We're 14th on the current form table over 6 games in which on...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Not sure we did deserve a point, other than the last 5 minutes we hardly got into their half and we’re very slow on the counter. Still, a good point nonetheless. It was an excellent away performance thoroughly deserving of a point . If you only spend the few seconds in the opposing half required to...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Gunter was o.k for these past two games for the most part but, with all that experience, the player does so little in terms of marking a player or stopping crosses which IMHO are prerequisites for full-back play and he never learns. Exactly, this is what full backs are supposed to do and our defenc...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

+1 I actually think Gunter has been pretty consistent during his time here. Yes occasionally he has had quite a decent game, and on occasion he has been truly uncompromisingly shocking, but by and large, more often than not, week in week out he’s just pretty shit. This, except I'd describe him as m...

Ejaria MOTM for me, not only was he tackling and winning the ball but he seemed to be wearing Glen Little's magic boots as the ball was sticking to his feet at times when it really shouldn't have. Rinamota and Ejaria - That's who I'd like to see the midfield built around, Couldn't agree more. We wi...

Yeah, ropey cross on the wrong foot. Big deal. He had his issues today, but he was fine.


And I'm no fan by any means.

That's putting it lightly Ian :wink:

And I am right there with you..

Re: BFTG - Brentford

We’ve got to stay up first, however. Gomes seems to be an excellent man manager this will be important. I’d love all of them as they’ve been all excellent. Echo post praising the scouting. McDermott like. Martínez- no chance. Miazga- no idea. If he’s enjoying being here he could feel that he’s coul...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

More than happy to have him in the side while he performs to that standard but Blackett has every right to feel a little hard done by. Probably more to do with tactics and cover from the bench. Lot of games in a short space of time. Moore's shoulder obviously is a problem. Gunter played well at Nor...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Yeah, the last two games have been one in the eye for the Gunter hunters Or, a few months on the bench have given him time to look up, realise that Stam left months ago and that these days we expect an end product beyond backwards and sideways passing and, defending by actually tackling your oppone...

Re: BFTG - PNE

Yeah it was Shock horror that a footballer costs his team one game of the season. People need to get over it I recall a certain Tiago being at fault for three goals in one game last year against Derby. That cost us the game. No-one ever mentioned that Like I said, people have an irrational dislike ...

Re: BFTG - PNE

I thought looking at the line up before the game - if you threw Oli in, that’s a play off challenging side, not a relegation one. Lack a bit of quality in depth obviously and staying fit now is vital, esp the back 4 We looked a class above Preston tbh Couldn't agree more Injuries may have conspired...

Nasty nasty nasty set-up, hope that they fail and drop through the leagues

Do they not still have the pitch invader/assault penance thing to pay still?

I honestly can't remember the last time someone returned from injury sooner than expected.


Errr, that'll be Oliveira after being subjected to GBH by Mings...

What about Moore after dislocating his arm?


Moore had his shoulder put back in it's socket on field and was never out through injury.
