Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Tbf get in a keeper and Gomes has been very well backed by the owners. That’s 3 players of known quality brought in and he’s been allowed to shift out who he likes

No excuses from here really

Re: Is Kelly off?

We need to start offloading somebody

The Gomes squad trimming has actually increased our squad size so far :)

Hopefully we can bin the transfer listed players sooner rather than later

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

It’s as good as we could hoped for in our position. If it doesn’t work out, no real loss - can fall back on the other strikers we have. Definitely worth the gamble

Comes across as a bit of a pcunt in his interview. Quite like that, prob what we need

Front row, 2nd in from the right.

However, she has that funny eyebrow thing going on. Think that ones Molly Bartrip. She’s prett...

Re: Rival Watch

Yeah been a crap game, very dull.

Bolton try hard but no quality. They really should go

Had a quick check on Rotherham’s fixtures - they are brutal after Feb.

Re: Nick Blackman...

Be quite happy if the whole team managed to muster 12 goals between them for the rest of the season in recent form :)

Always got a bit of a soft spot for him as was my sons favourite player when I first started taking him. Was very upset when he got sold!

Haven’t played badly, just very blunt up front. Sounds a little familiar

he's not, but he can do a better job there than Yiadom, Gunter or Richards there imo. Not much in it though

Re: Starting XI

Dunno, its very tough to pick at the moment. Lots of good cameos, from midfielders, but still not getting the results. Only Swift and Rino seem to be consistently playing well. I've somehow managed to only watch one game under Gomes and that was Swansea, so not in a great position to judge, but: New...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

sounds like a good chance of this happening anyway. Lots of reports of medicals etc

I quite like all of Baldock, Bod and Meite, but their seasons have been wrecked by constant minor injuries. Baldock's fitness record particularly is pathetic

yep Bolton is massive. Be very very concerned if we lose that, esp if Rotherham pick up points at the weekend

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Really Blackett, Richards and Gunter should be able to cover LB. It really shouldn't be that much of a problem position New keeper would be nice. Anssi's distribution is awful. None of Bod, Meite or Baldock ever seem to be fully fit. Loader hasn't scored yet. Fairly low risk to sign Oliveira on loan

Only seen him once, but looked handy. Didn't stand out as being only 16 in the U23 game

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Gomes didn't deny it in the presser, so suspect there is some interest there

Loan to the end of the season with a view to a perm would be fine by me. Hopefully would be right up for it, if not, its not real harm done

Re: Gomes BBC Berks Interview

Who is ‘we’ and ‘most of the fan base’? Much as I’d like to be the voice of the Reading fans, I’m giving my opinion, and that is that with the quality of player we have in the side we shouldn’t be bottom 3

Fine if people disagree on that btw

Re: Gomes BBC Berks Interview

Agree to an extent

Tough one though - tried to get a experience tested striker last season and he was abysmal

Just not easy whichever way you try
