Re: Team for Preston (A)

Walker Yiadom Moore Ilori Blackett Frost Bacuna Rinomohta Barrow Loader Baldock We need some fresh impetus in this squad and bringing in Loader, Rinamohta and Frost from the u23s should liven things up a bit.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (h) sponsored by oh no, not another Saturday home game

It has to be 4-4-2 for me, we don't have the strikers to play one up top and i really think Bod and Baldock will play well together. Our biggest problem area is the midfield! there is no creativity and the players who could make something happen (Swift, Kelly) are both playing terrible at the moment...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Thought we played well first half after a shaky start, we grew into the game and scored two good goals, and went into halftime sitting comfortable. Blackburn changed things up and came out hard and put us under lots of pressure. Then McShane gave away a calamitous penalty that any pro defender shoul...

Re: Summer Transfers

I still don't think we've got a centre back anywhere near close to Moore's quality, it's time for Ilori to step up or we should get a new quality cb to pair with Moore if he stays. Recruiting high quality at the back will give us more confidence when going forward. Barrow, an in-form Aluko and a ne...

Re: The Positive Thread - Only Positivity Allowed

I too am feeling positive about this season, we aint going up and we wont get to the play offs but i really think we will sit happily in the middle of the table which will be a job well done in this extremely tough looking championship league. I think we have some really good players and Clement has...

Re: Good or poor business

Current pricing for CFs atm is insane. So Baldocks price is probably about right. No point worrying about if he get injured as thats part of the game. Clement can only judge by what h has seen. We needed rid of deadwood in the middle, With Meyler coming in, Evans was probs the only asset in CM that...

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.
