Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (a) sponsored by one pub on each corner

Really surprised at some of the comments here. Once again, we show we are mentally weak. Goals immediately after have time, this season and stoppage time points lost etc, got to be a coaching management issue. Really pi$$ed off Or is it down to individuals not taking responsibility ? Surely it can’...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Agreed with that. Everyone looked good today, Teddy Howe had a very good game despite one heart-in-mouth moment. Would like to see Osho, Holmes and McIntyre all play - maybe one could go into midfield to add some steel. Three at the back maybe, although I think Osho and McIntyre are good enough foo...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Saints erected disappintingly poor and we should have won by more. No surprise Barratt being on the bench given the first teamers getting decent work outs. Holmes being fit meant Osho on the bench, showing how strong we are in that position. Tyler Frost had a good game as did Loader and generally th...

Absolutley no need to bring in any more centrebacks. Loads of good ones queueing up at the club

Re: My first rumour report. Things not well at Reading.

I get a couple of emails a week at least with info about forthcoming games. I think the unanswered question is whether any perceived decline is directly linked to Gourlay being appointed or whether he came in at a point where there were already issues (if these issues are more than anecdotal). Suppo...

Re: Club developed players

I know just the guy too. He's 6ft6, left footed, has scored a decent amount of goals despite being young. Jake Coop.. oh.. Luckily I think most of the young centrebacks we have coming through will turn out to be better than Cooper. Not as tall maybe but without the tendency to throw in a big error ...

Re: Club developed players

I don’t think this would be a problem for us at all. We could name any one of 4 home grown centre backs on the bench without a problem. We’ve got several keepers who would be ok as reserve keeper. Loader currently and Novacovic next season qualify as would Smith. Obita and Richards when fit plus Wa...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

I fear you're right. Although there's a not tiny chance we could get relegated and lose one or both of Baldock and Bod. Nova might also prove too good for us at that point. You wouldn’t think. First team squad with 5 strikers would look overloaded though. Surely Bod, Baldock, McNulty, Novacovic and...

Cracking start for him at the higher level. Yep but I really do get the feeling we will never see him in a Reading shirt again. I fear you're right.

And of course different attitudes / interpretation of FFP have come and gone and our income has fluctuated wildly with the impact of promotion and relegation.

Re: My first rumour report. Things not well at Reading.

Even In the Madejski period people on here we’re forever critical of a lot of off field stuff. I would imagine Anton hardly ran a tight ship (commissioned new carpeting for corporate areas with club logo woven into it etc). I suspect simply the series of regime changes have left stuff confused and l...

Re: Friends and family midweek tickets.

They do ticket checking at every game, although only at random gates. When a ticket is put in the readers there are lights inside the gate that show if it is a concession ticket and if the person using it looks too old/young they get asked for proof of age. If you are caught using the wrong ticket t...

Re: My first rumour report. Things not well at Reading.

Just to offer a balance I met up with a friend yesterday who works at the club. His take on the behind the scenes situation was rather different. He said Gourlay was brought in because the Chinese believed the club needed an utter revamp. His brief was to sort it out from top to tail. He has upset ...

Re: My first rumour report. Things not well at Reading.

Thanks for sharing, you've forgotten to mention the millions they are ploughing into the new training setup and the great progress that is making (fact!). The main fault is they have failed massively in using this as positive PR. Yep, all seems rather inward directed. I guess they are thinking that...

Re: Danny Loader

Not seen much that says Loader is ready to be near the first team yet. One problem is it’s not really clear what position he would play. He wouldn’t play as a lone striker, he’s not big, he drops deep looking for the ball, he’s not a poacher. It’s hard to tell how his skills would transfer to first ...

Re: BFTG , Hull.

MOre weird comments . Walker was ‘let off’ by the linesman ? One of their ‘disallowed’ goals was tapped in after not only the Lino had flagged but the ref has blown his whistle and was pointing to where the kick was to be taken. If a player puts the ball in the net either illegally of after play has...
