Re: Boycott

Because there are far more than 3 teams worse than us in this league No there aren't. You are deluded. Currently, based on the form over the last 30 games, there are 6. That would be fine if we were playing at the same level as we were in the first 15-20 games. We aren't. We've got worse. We've onl...

Re: The reason we're stuck with Stam

We have 16 games left. We have currently won 8 of 30 and now realistically need 6 wins out of 16 . We are playing the worst football of our season, and getting worse. Only if we lost the other ten, and the teams below us all had great ends to the season. I can't see us getting 18 points from the la...

Re: Boycott

Those calling for PANTS DAY 2 as a way of removing Stam seem to be forgetting what the acronym stood for. ' Players Are Not Trying Sufficiently ' . Is that really the case now? I thought your beef was against Stam. The acronym came after the idea though. Maybe we should comment on how boring the fo...

Re: Boycott

Can I just reiterate we aren’t going down. What makes you so confident about that? Our performances for the last month or two have been a relegation level. In fact I'd say they've been at Bullivant-esque capitulation level, where we sleepwalk from game to game, expecting to lose. We may have a six ...

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

Did someone give Ilori a 6? :shock: He looked like he'd fallen out of bed for all the energy he showed. Backed this up with some horrendous passing and the worst first touch I've seen for some time to pick up a well deserved yellow. He is arrogant, lethargic and complacent on the ball. I think Ilor...

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

the fact that we are well on our way to a Calendar year without a home win is totally unacceptable. We're not. The last home win was at the end of November. It's 9 months since our home win on a Saturday, but if our three home wins had come on Saturdays rather than Tuesdays, it wouldn't have made o...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h) sponsored by looking for a win at home on a Saturday

You claimed the only thing that matters is the final score. While there's logic to that, have you never walked out of a defeat thinking the other team didn't deserve their win? Have you never felt the final score didn't reflect how the game went? How could either possibly be true if the only measur...

What I do know is that our first shot of the game didn't come until the 59th minute. I'd actually started to wonder if we could go the whole game without a shot.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Burton Albion (a) sponsored by points mean prizes

If there's one place we ought to be looking for a win, it's Burton.

We might think our home form is bad, but their last 10 home game has produced W0 D1 L9.


I can see it ending 3-0 tonight. I just don't know who to.

Re: VAR

3 minutes to make a decision on the penalty? Teething problems with the process or just how it's going to be? I think the problem there was one of those where even after seeing what happened clearly, there was still doubt about the decision. Yes there was a bit of shirt held, but no, that grab did ...

0 points in February against Sheffield United is now nailed on, as the game has been postponed because they are in the 5th round of the cup.

Re: Why we are sh*t

4) Playing without a striker too offten While there are other factors, not getting in a player in the summer who can score goals has been our biggest undoing this season. When you play one up front, that one guy really has to produce, or you'll fail to score. If you fail to score it'll erode confid...

Re: The road from here....

I’d be number 3 in your categories, for me though it’s not about taking the rough with the smooth or dealing with being rubbish. I’ve never been so bored in my life and for that reason I’m out. Exactly the same. I've not stopped going, yet, but the Stevenage replay was very close to being that game...

Re: Low away attendances

Did anyone else go to the "festival of football" on the Sunday after winning promotion in 1986? I doubt many more than 300 turned up to Elm Park for that one. Given that the first team did actually play (v Wokingham) I suspect that may the lowest crowd for any kind of match at Elm Park tha...

Possibly the answer to why the team isn't getting along, and one that could be solved with a few sticks of deodorant, and some tactful words to the offending players.

Are we the silent minority or what? We're Reading fans. Most of us are pretty silent most of the time. In my mind - this is far, far worse then Brian's second stint - at least then, we knew we were safe, beat a Prem team in the cup and yet that wasn't good enough rightly or wrongly. Christ on a bik...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by total apathy

With the Burton game just four days later, you have to expect a hugely-changed side being put on for this one - pretty much any team we can put out that doesn't involve youth team players, I'd have thought, although Popa will still be on the bench. Unless they put out "an XI" rather than a...
