Re: SPECULATION - MOHAMED EISA

Big jump from League 2... I'd want to see evidence of quality over more than two seasons if we want someone to jump two divisions. I'd rather give Nova, Smith, Loader and Bod some faith than pay £1m for a guy off the back of one very good season in L2. I totally understand getting evidence of his q...

Re: Results required for us to stay up in the final day

To be honest, other than the 106 season and the first in the premiership, i always thought the Elm Park years were much more fun lol. Going down would be bad for the club but not the end of the world!! Wigan and Blackburn have bounced straight back and i'm sure we probably would as well and with tha...

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

Today was terrible, despite the total lack of passion, we did have the ball and controlled the game for large periods? our downfall was our play in the final third. No cutting edge, and the wingers couldn't cross for shit!! I would like to see a back to basic approach and use the 4-4-2 formation whi...

Re: BFTG - Preston -Home

Clement did well, though I was shocked at his lack of fitness in the last 5 or 10 mins, how on earth is he running out of steam after 35 minutes action. To be fair he was putting a serious shift in. Chased every ball upfield, made every run off Bod and tracked Pearson back every time he went forwar...

Re: POLL: Paul Clement in... are we still going down?

I think Clement would be a shrewd appointment, he has experience in getting teams out of trouble at the wrong end of the table, he has a wealth of experience (All be it as a Coach) but the clubs he has coached couldn't be of a higher caliber so his contact list must be pretty impressive. And lets fa...

Re: BFTG - Leeds

We are lacking so much. Leeds second goal went in, all the heads dropped not a leader out on the pitch rallying the team. Team Spirit shot to bits. Totally agree here, once we scored our goal we played some really good football and it really looked like some of the confidence was coming back and re...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Well, Wigan 1 - 0 Man City , i guess Paul Cooks resume just got a little tastier. Those Wigan players gave it their all and defended magnificently....now those players were playing for there manager and giving it their all, but i guess Paul Cook will not want to come to Reading lol.

I'm not sure what is worse, the fact that I think Stam isn't going anywhere and we're going to relegated, or that I'm almost resigned to it and not even that bothered anymore. :| We won't be relegated, fortunately there are a few worse than us There is always a team that falls from the middle of th...

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

Lowest attendance in the Championship since the Wimbledon boycotts at Selhurst Park in 2003. Attendance 2704 is really pretty embarrassing for a championship game!! and maybe 350-400 of those were the brave hardy Reading fans who made the trip. Burton don't deserve to be a championship team with th...

Re: Team for Brentford

A few on here seem a bit indecisive regarding our current RW position. I for one would like to see Popa given a run in the team as i've always thought of him as a real direct threat who can cause problems. Also, i may be wrong here but is Behrens natural position RW and not LW as he keeps getting pl...

Terrible game, why did Aluko come on for the injured Swift!! surly he should have replaced him with Bacuna. Aluko adds nothing at the moment, all he does is spin around in circles. On the positive side, Richards had a very god game and i didn't realize he was so quick !!!! also i think Ilori is an u...

Please get our transfer business completed in swift fashion!!!

Why do teams always wait until the last minute (Deadline Day) to complete their transfer business? we know what we need, and i'm assuming that a list of players has been drawn up and handed to our DoF, as well as players we would like to off load. I understand offloading players is out of our contro...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

I really don't think the formations are an issue, its the slow side to side and back to the keeper passing that's boring and easy for the opposing team to play against and press us into dangerous situations in our own penalty area. We don't have enough quality in the team to pass our way out of dang...
