Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

It's speculative nonsense which ever way you want to claim it, but given Stam had just achieved one win in 18 or 19 games, I don't have a clue why you seem to be so certain he'd have got two wins in six. Especially when his win came against Burton and Clement's came at home at 3pm against decent si...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

Yes we got 2 wins but anyone who thinks those wins weren't largely down to luck is lying to themself. There wasn't that much luck in the two clean sheets in those games. The effort the team put into defending those leads was outstanding. I don't think we'd have seen the same levels of determination...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

Stam would have lost all those games. Less red cards only because the players would give less of a shit under Stam than they seem to now. Would he? I know his entire season was a failure but 2 wins and a draw? He could have GOTTEN that. It's speculative nonsense which ever way you want to claim it,...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

I’m with Leon on this. Given that some folk refer to a new series as a new “season” I just can’t wait for the start of the new football series in August. I look forward to receiving the usual :roll: or :| PS I like NCS too. I think that a "season" refers to a run of episodes taking place ...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

I don't think there is much point in pointing out everything we did wrong there. Midfield was dire. Swift looked like he was playing with an under 18s team around him but was equally ineffective. Everyone seemed afraid to take a shot. Ref was poor. Goals were all from sloppy defending. Bod sadly ha...

I know this won't be a popular opinion but Stam probably would have gotten the same points haul from those fixtures. Maybe less red cards too. Stam would have lost all those games.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by c'mon URZ

Anyone else notice Sheffield are the ones playing like they're chasing the game?

Let's see what we can do about that goal difference to help Brum survive. Sheffield are more likely to put 10 past us then we are to get just 1 back.

100% agree. Very little has changed. The only major thing being we don't know what the tactics will be when we inevitably lose.

Future England star Liam Kelly failing to pass a ball into the box despite it being a 2 on 1.

And in a crucial game like this, too. :cry:

What you on? Bod had a shot blocked on the line.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by c'mon URZ

Lots of ball watching there. JVDB has been guilty of destroying any chance we have had of good attacking play 4 times by my count.

JVDB may as well put on a blue shirt and start smashing the ball at Mannone with the way he is passing today.

Re: Building for next season

The time to sign Long was 2 years ago. You may be right, but what we need is some POWER, some speed, a few hard men in our side. I remember the Everton CBs saying how Long & Hunt didn't give them a moment's rest. We miss that element. Kermy doesn't do it, Martin (ha-ha) and neither does Bod (wh...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Fair enough - but who else would you have in there? We’ve tried pretty much every combo and it’s come up short. Bring Joey back in? Sadly think I’d prefer him to Evans or Edwards currently Now don't dismiss this out of hand as the ramblings of a madman, but what about Tyler in there as the defensiv...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Blackett has all the physical and technical characteristics to play that role but lacks the mental ability which is arguably the most important. He's seems to lose concentration too much.

Re: Building for next season

When I met Shane Long and told him I was a Reading Fan he just said "oh yeah?"
Seems like a lovely guy and, imo, would kill it in the championship but I don't think he has given us much thought since leaving..
