Re: In or Out?

his oversight of a predator/striker up front when the money was there is a massive, massive amateurish mistake,
he said he wanted one, we tried to sign one. Blaming him for that is a bit wrong
Loads of other shit that's his fault, but that, less so.

Re: Gunter

He has 81 International caps for Wales (who are a far better team than England) A serious contender for the biggest load of sh*te I've read this season. Wales is essentially Bale +10, but even with that one world class player, man for man, they should be a long way short of any side England are cap...

Re: Worst ever Reading Player

Michael Meaker


entertainingly bad, like the shit jimmy kebe, but without the blistering pace
suffered in our assessment of him due to who he replaced imo
I actually quite liked him.
no way near the worst for sure

Re: Is the idea of a striker flawed? Does Stam believe in total football?

Clearly there was money to be spent this window and he didn't get anyone in, so I can only imagine he knows what he's doing he said he wanted a forward, we tried to sign forwards, we couldn't sign forwards, so ended up going for wingers and attacking midfielders instead. again. but to say it was hi...

Re: In or Out?

I'm basing this on the fact that going to watch Reading play has become a chore.


started way before stam, and he rectified it, before slipping back a bit due to injuries and failure to land a proper striker in the summer

Re: 38th in Europe

I think we mainly just need plan A to include a striker, and for us to attack teams occasionally

for good owner, read one who is willing to throw his own money down the drain with little chance of recouping it without selling up while in the prem?

Re: Renewed pessimism/interest

this is just what happens when you take tribalism out of the game.
then its just about the 'products' success and excitement for the 'customers'
and when you don't get those things you stop going, where before youd go no matter what and have a fierce pride about how shit you generally were.
