Re: BFTG Brentford

Highlights did make it look like a handball at the end. Yann’s Header would have been straight into Bods path otherwise

Re: BFTG Brentford

Having an improved striker would make little difference to be honest if we play as we have been doing so. It’s not like Bod missed a stackful of chances today. He did very well off pitiful service Yann looks shot, but Stam has played him week in and out whilst Bod has been on the bench. You could ha...

Get out.


You banning me just for that :( :lol:

Actually thought he made some good saves - highlights bear that out

Some of his passing was poor though

Re: BFTG Brentford

Even if Stam is sacked who can turn that shower round? Despite all the comings and goings of the past 18 months. We are still left with an unbalanced squad. No one ever mentions the director of football. Been quiet for a while. Yet in September was pronouncing. "Brian Tevreden says Reading FC ...

On Tuesday week we'll know for sure.


Just been beaten by Burton and Brum, so on current form I’d certainly say we are the worst side in the division

Re: BFTG Brentford

Thing is, you watch the teams in the upper half of the division, and they are all clearly beatable. We actually looked more like getting points from today than we did Birmingham

Not that with the current set up I can see us beating anyone. Gourlay needs to do what is paid for and bin Stam I’m afraid.

Re: RUMOUR - Yoann Barbet

Fair enough. Looked a handy player, not that Aluko and latterly Barrow gave him many problems

Re: BFTG Brentford

Yann was dreadful as mentioned but what on Earth was going on when Moore get sent to CF (ineptly) whilst Yann played CM (ineptly)? Smacks of just making it up as we go along One thing not mentioned was the fans were actually pretty supportive. No boos and fans and players clapped each other at the e...

True. The pass to him wasn’t great though. Thought Kelly should have hit first time

Re: BFTG Brentford

We have to win one of the next 2 or else I’m pretty certain we’ll drop Anyway to today’s game. We looked low in quality and confidence. The midfield lacked creativity and whilst Bod and Barrow tried hard, nothing clear cut was really created The defence looked better in shape but the impressive Vibe...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

After watching today with Martin in mind - I don’t think he’ll make the slightest bit f difference. I can’t see how he’d score any goals the way we play

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by still no Saturday home win this season

Will wait for a btfg thread for more detail but quick summary: We were slightly better than recently, mainly due to Bod at least giving an outlet. Could and maybe should have got the drae, showed a bit of spirit, hit the bar, couple of good saves from Bentley and think should have had a pen But thin...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by still no Saturday home win this season

Not especially happy with the team. Aluko should be nowhere near and the midfield doesn’t fill me with joy

Where has Bacuna got to this time? About the third time he has disappeared unexpectedly

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

The club isn’t in dire straits. It just made a bid which hasn’t yet been deemed acceptable by his parent club

It might be more of a sign for how desperate Sunderland are that they’ve gone straight in and matched Derby’s demands, which I believe are covering his whole wages (and maybe a fee as well)

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Update on SS news, went into some depth

Sunderland have agreed deal with Derby but ‘a lot of work to do’ to persuade Martin to move there

Reading still interested but have not as yet agreed deal with Derby

Suggested without saying in so many words that he’d rather come to us

Not any more.....

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

I suspect Sunderland are far happier to pay that than us

If Martin is happy enough to join them, then it’s probably a done deal

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Let's not panic until the window shuts and once again Reading will have done sod all about a striker but more than likely will have got another midfielder in. ^^^ This has happened once Would have been good to have wrapped it up - but Sunderland were always in the chase. Presume Derby will come bac...
