Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Not going to rate because I'll get mad all over again, just to say the only thing worse than Reading's first half, was the referee's performance.

Clement hanging on by the skin of his teeth I reckon.

Re: If Jokanovic became available

saw Something on Sky saying we were bottom of the table in XG goal difference over the season. Don't think Fulham really spent that much tbh, and they were useless when he took over If you want a closer look at the money, the Price Of Football is always a good bet. the link below is the look he too...

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

Meyler retains his place in the Ireland squad. Quite bizarre. Still a provisional squad, gives the opportunity for MON and Keane to have a look. It's not like being called up for England, we're not overflowing with alternatives. It may well be that Clement has taken a dislike to him rather than he'...

Re: Clement

Yeah something like that would be a great move for him, less physical too which will help cover his weaknesses. I think I am right in saying he has no kids or wife either so nothing really tying him to staying here. I think I am right in saying he is an "eligable bachelor" anyway which is...

Re: Clement

No room for big Chrissy Gunter? If Obita does not come back then I suppose. He may decide himself he doesn't want to be bench fodder. Would be a pity though, he's useful because he's always match fit, regardless of when he last played, and he can cover across the defence. Given our injury issues, a...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I presume the reason this thread died a temporary death was , we were miserable enough without having to read the glee of opposition fans. But it's nice after a victory. so - here's some frustrated #BCFC fans for your delectation. Concede 3 against a team who are shit. Worrying to see how fragile we...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

A very welcome three points. What brings it home how far we have slipped back in the last five years is when Bristol City fans come out with suicidal posts after losing to "teams like Reading". Like the backwater Brazil have slipped in to a parallel universe where they have spent the last...

Re: Clement

Really hope someone has the balls to press Clement on McShane. He clearly wasn't injured, McShane was being punished for something in my opinion. Maybe something happened in the aftermath of the Blackburn game? Something happened when he was at Hull I recall.. Yep, you're spot on. I think behind hi...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

How did Rinomhota look? Where did he play in the midfield and can he tackle? Right hand side of a narrow midfield triangle (Bacuna on the left, Kelly at the base of the triangle) Yes, put in a good few tackles. Also took a yellow to break up an attack. Looked very composed. Didn't create much, but ...

Re: Clement

The same people moaning about results now are also the same people that were moaning under Stam even when we won because the football wasn't great. Under the circumstances, Clement isn't doing a bad job, barring a couple of games, we're creating opportunities and scoring goals and as soon as Eza co...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I thought 1871 supporters were better today. The support around the ground was also improved. It was quiet for 10/15 minutes after Brizzle made it 1-1 but thereafter it was decent. Y256 put in a showing a few times today and I even heard the North and West once or twice! South was short of critical...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Nope, you’re not the only one - hence my ratings ^^^^ Yep, am amazed at some of the high ratings here. Attack-wise we were good. Defensively, pretty poor. Midfield just don't track runners enough, and defense were shambolic at times. Blackett in particular fannies about too much instead of clearing...

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Must have been really serious considering he's confirmed to be back in the squad already. Probably exactly serious enough to be dropped for a few games whilst it was sorted out. It was a comment aimed at the (I assume facetious?) comments that he won't play for us again. I'd love to know what he di...

He could end up costing us as much as relegation. I've no particular love for Clement - I like the guy, and I do...
