Re: Always going to be Puma?

QPR's Dryworld home kit is basically a Reading kit from the 70s. I wouldn't mind that

Re: Always going to be Puma?

Big clubs get the big contracts with the likes of adidas and Nike. Smaller clubs can just buy a set of kits out of a catalogue, essentially, which is why you see the likes of Brentford in adidas and PNE in Nike. Puma have cornered a large part of the Football League market, providing the same kit te...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

If every single player is invested in the playing style, it will more often than not look good and be effective. If you play the ball on the floor and build from the back and roll over a team 4-0, everyone thinks it looks great. The same if you win 4-0 playing kick and run, or a combination of both....

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

I wouldn't be angry, but definitely disappointed. We've been up there all year so to drop out near the end would be annoying, but in terms of the bigger picture I think we've had a pretty successful first season under Stam regardless of where we finish (as long as it's top half). As others have said...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I guess if McShane does turn out to be a little more serious, we could see Dickie on the bench, presuming Ilori is still out.

We've got to work with what we've got, I guess.

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

Anyone know how serious McShane's injury looked Could be fun at Sheffield with both McShane and Moore missing. Could have Berg and Reece as the centre backs and Blackett in at left back :lol: I couldn't really tell but he was not moving very well when he went off. There didn't seem to be a particul...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I went on Saturday. For the first 30 minutes we looked really good going forward, creating a lot and testing their keeper a couple of times. They had a couple of forays forward and I thought we handled it well enough, then Blackett got caught in two minds on a ball over the top, didn't deal with it ...

Re: Team & Predictions for Fulham

Blackett will be a straight swap for Obita, and I think Evans should come in to the midfield three for one of the others, for a little balance. Perhaps Swift as he is still coming back from an injury and hasn't quite hit the heights of before his time out. I have a horrible feeling JvdB will come in...

QPR were shit and we didn't have the brains to unpick their disciplined shape.

Re: My second team -Reading

I was a Reading fan from the start but I did follow Shaka to Newcastle when he left as he was my absolute hero and I was only five at the time. Newcastle were also superb in that era, too, which helped. I didn't follow Shaka any further after that, thank God, and my interest waned as I got a little ...

Re: Sheff Wed Predictions

Tough to predict.

We need a performance in response to the shite last weekend and Sheff Wed are always dangerous, even with players missing.

Having said that, I think with Forestieri out and Moore back in for us, we will edge a tight game 2-1.

Re: Ben Hamer

Maybe so..... just a shame that IMHO both occasions got the better of him - a confidence player who needs to be playing regularly. Al-Habsi has been an unexpected revelation but I cannot help thinking, how fantastically well suited Feds would be to our current style of play at the back. Absolutely,...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

For a team that is playing way above its normal level, I think it's a bit disrespectful of their fans to sing "you're nothing special, we lose every week" Can't imagine their players are too impressed with that I found that funny the first time I heard it; I always appreciate self-depreca...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (h) sponsored by a Terry Bell own goal

For the tactically inept group of supporters that do not understand the backwards passing, please take note... Our game plan is to keep the ball on the floor and prioritize possession. If we want to pass the ball out from the back into space, we require the opposition to press the defenders and the...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (h) sponsored by a Terry Bell own goal

I thought we played reasonably well, although we were crying out for some fresh legs in the second half and I'm baffled as to why Stam didn't make a change. First half, we controlled possession but never really looked dangerous up front. Kermorgant has his strengths, none of which cater to him being...
