Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (h) sponsored by Slumber, Inc

Rakels came on for Latvia over the weekend, so presumably fit. Whether he'll make the bench is open to question though. I'd like to see him back in saying that, a useful option unfortunately think you are right - they will defend deep and try to hit on the break. I'm expecting a pretty dull game and...

Re: Top 10 Championship players.

Swift up for the young player award as well. A little surprised but he was excellent before Christmas. Certainly winning the award should add a few quid to his value if nothing else Didn't watch it, but sounds like he played pretty well for England U21s last night, so hopefully coming back into his ...

Re: Top 10 Championship players.

at least it didn't just dig out the same tired old names though - found it quite interesting, if agreed I wouldn't have Yann near the team personally (though I do think AAH is probably the best keeper this year)

Re: Leeds united

I can see it being a dull draw to be honest, both teams cancelling each other out, and probably both teams happy enough with a point. We've been pretty horrible on tv this season as well.

Still, should be a good atmosphere and a nice early Reading goal would liven things up

Re: Top 10 Championship players.

Not that exciting but the top champ team of the season statistically (whoscored.com) has both AAH and Yann in it. Actually prefer this team to the opinion based one

Re: The Egg chasers relegation

Let's hope so :) I'm sure the boards prevented a large amount of the damage that the runners would have caused running on the grass (would have been very messy otherwise), and obviously when you are hosting some of the best runners in Britain you need a good solid surface for them to run on I didn't...

Re: The Egg chasers relegation

The HM track would have been down for about 12 hours and it's obviously put down to protect the pitch, no feet pounding the grass, weight spread by the boards etc. not going to reply on the Irish thing, as like you say I do interpret it as a whinge, and you don't - fair enough. But the HM thing - a...

Re: Last 8 games

another beautifully written GR article (Though five of the eight games are against teams at the bottom of the table, all of whom have no one than a win in their last five games, an intense April schedule is set to test Royals) but it does give the info you want: http://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/foo...

Re: BFTG - Wednesday (A)

It's a fair point on the geography of the teams in the division. 15 of the teams are Birmingham or more northern and you have Ipswich and Norwich which are miles away Inevitably a number of these away games have been away in midweek and the logistics of getting there and back obv affect the number w...

"It's very difficult for us to make ends meet renting a stadium off Reading FC," Casey told BBC Radio Berkshire. "We have to look at it from a commercial side of things," the former Exiles second row added. "Where rugby is going at the moment, for us to be able to compete, w...

Re: The Egg chasers relegation

More whinging from Irish - I very much doubt they will be up for contributing to relaying the pitch next year: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/rugby-union/39334085 They really seem to just want to go. Surely some crappy club in west London would have them to for a year or two to keep them quiet - QPR may...

Re: Top 10 Championship players.

Seen a few teams of the season appearing on sky and elsewhere. Usual suspects, no Reading players (obviously) I would have though AAH must be in the mix, I've not seen any other keeper stand out this year The other player mentioned on Sky to miss out ( based on whoscored ratings) was Yann. Surprised...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

considering we are 5 pts clear, have dire Rotherham and a Wigan side not too far behind them both at home left to come, Wednesday have a game against Fulham - would be seriously disappointed if we didn't make the play offs now.
