Re: The Stam passing game

I think it's a get better change. I'd quite happily see one sub take us from Mannone Gunter, McShane, Moore, Blackett Swift, Bacuna, Kelly Popa, Clement, Barrow To Mannone McShane, Moore, Blackett Popa, Swift, Bacuna, Kelly, Barrow Clement, Mendes Taking ysterday as an example. But I'm not sure I'd ...

Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

We should be alright if McCleary / Mendes and Berg are fit to replace them short term. Clement should be able to cover for Swift and Berg for Kelly.

But three midfielders out at once is shit.

Re: The Stam passing game

I've been watching Reading for many years and this is without doubt the most boring non entertaining type of football and team I've seen. The team maybe more skillful than teams we've had in the past but I'd rather see a team attack more have a go and lose rather than today against Preston where ac...

Re: The Stam passing game

Passing game is fine. Though as was the case today. Too many poor passes were made. Players having too many touches before moving the ball on. A lack of tempo in our play. An inability to stretch the opposition defence. When the passing game doesn't work or we do find ourselves a goal down. What's ...

Re: Back From The Match - Preston

I dont think any striker worth their sort will come to us as we don't play with an attacker in mind. Especially as Stam does not seem to like out and out strikers. How did he get on with dwight Yorke and Andy Cole? When he was at man utd. Worth their salt. The rest of it isn't much more accurate ei...

Just because there's only one way for you to cook the fries, doesn't mean in other areas of employment people don't have any say in how they achieve the results their employer wants.

Exactly

What we need are more midfielders........,. :roll:


What we need are for the players we actually have to stop routinely forgetting they're footballers and actually do the basics right.

And stay fit.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the first long trek of the season

Does look a strong team. So Stam sees Bacuna as competition for Evans / Berg in the combative midfield place.

Obviously still with no striker, but Barrow, Clement, Popa, with Swift in midfield is actually a pretty creative and attacking group of players

Re: The Stam passing game

Mental and physical fatigue. Without the ball you have to be constantly alert to movement, adjusting shape, chasing the ball and on your toes. In attack and possession only about a third of your team needs to be that on it. The others are in a comparative rest period. Sooner or later that begins to ...

Re: The Stam passing game

I'd add that Stam is also benefiting from the work of Adkins, Clarke and McDermott. All tried to play more of a possession game since we came down. They did it ineffectually and without the right players. But they started the process of matching the academy style and bringing the youth through. They...

Re: The Stam passing game

I'm not a huge fan of the Barcelona bore the opposition to death approach. I have thought for a long time we needed to be a lot better at controlling games, keeping possession and killing the opposition momentum. I'd like to see us change gears a bit quicker and go a bit more incisive. I think the b...

Which app?

Bbc radion which requires bbcmediaI believe.

I've notused my phone, but if it's available on the net, which it has been, then there's no reason the Iplayer or radio equiv shouldn't work.
