Re: Women Pundits/Commentators

After Leon Knights outburst, I have to agree to an extent, admittedly he didn't approach it in quite the right way but I do agree with the sentiment. For those who hadn't seen this, he was referring to Alex Scott's appearance as a pundit for the England Switzerland game, discuss. "Might be a u...

Re: BFTG - Preston

Illori and Moore look to be building a decent partnership, but I think the main problem for them is that they're not getting enough protection from the holding midfielder, on Saturday's case Bacuna was leaving too much space in the first half, but gave them better protection in the second half. On ...

Re: BFTG - Preston

Why do you say we look a team destined for relegation and then say Clement will get it right and we will stay up? Which is it? I said that at this moment we look like a side destined for the drop. Because of the indecision in our play and not a clear and perfected method of play that is efficient a...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Reading Green Park will receive £2.3m towards a total project cost of £16.5m with the DFT saying it "has the potential to unlock 7,500 new jobs and 1,500 homes". I can understand it might create some jobs for people working at the station, but seriously how is it going to unlock 7,500 new...

Re: Clement

I am unable to back this up in any way but I believe I read that short corners (as in not into the box) result in more goals that corners crossed deep into the box. Corners and goal kicks both wind me up a little as in both cases pumping it long often lead to either a counter attack or sustained po...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by Andy Hughes

Chance for PC not to change a winning team and aim for consistency. However, like others on this Board, I think Aluko/Gunter is weak, but suspect injury to Blackett will keep Gunter in side. If he has better cover in front, I think his game will improve again. Sims seems to be perfect impact sub so...

Yeah lets just ignore his completely inept displays, let him get away with it. Bless little Chrissy. It's not bashing. He was shite. Players should be called out when they're shite. Especially when we have a RB performing at a much higher standard forked out on the left to accommodate him . How do ...

I think Stam made him too cautious and he lost his mojo

Really, because he seems to continually take stupid risks.

Re: BFTG - Preston

He could potentially play as a 10 behind Bod, but would have thought McNulty and Baldock are both ahead of him there, Swift as well Whilst we have an abundance of wingers, none are ever fit. I suspect PC considered starting Sims ahead of him Saturday and think he will consider it again this weeks B...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

In a number of games we seemto have conceded a lot of shots however we have actually been defending reasonably well and a lot of the shots are hopeful long range efforts. As with many football stats the numbers are fairly meaningless. I’d say it is much more impressive to score a number of goals fr...

Without enthusiasm, same side. But ready to pull Aluko at a moment's notice for Sims, Barrow or Bodvarsson.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

Even though I predicted a win and was thrilled to see us win let's not forget that we conceded 23 shots, 10 on target plus five blocks and, I believe, hitting a post doesn't count as on target. That is a scary number of chances to concede. There is still a radical fault in the team I`m surprised th...

Re: BFTG - Preston

I've not been able to go to matches for a while so haven't seen Reading play for a while but just curious if everyone agrees that Aluko is a waste of space or are there those who disagree but keep quiet on here? I just find it strange that everyone is so negative about him yet the manager obviously...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Players only want to talk when things are rosey. All of our squad are hiders unfortunately, not one of them can front it up. I think some would be up for it. Meyler is always responding to sh*tty 12 year olds on twitter who whine at him. I'd rather someone who has been at the club longer do it thou...

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Yiadom booked. Mannone injured in training yesterday. Believed a minor knock. Meyler has a minor knee problem and should be back in contention next week. Popa has an injured ankle from a week or so ago. He just rolled it so shouldn’t be out too long (not that he ever plays anyway) Blackett was miss...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

Just from the highlights, couple of nice bits of play by Swift I don’t mind him and Bacuna in the middle - have a bit of dynamism and creativity about them. Be interested to see how Kelly played Lovely bit of play by Sims on the third - laid it on a plate. That bit of play by their #12 on their fir...

The real diehards would have gone to that game today. They will have enjoyed that and deservedly so. Interesting to see what side is picked against Narch. If fit will Barrow come back in? I feel strongly that you should keep tinkering to a minimum and rarely change a winning side. But I'd still dro...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

That's what Bacuna should be doing. Picking it up and carrying it forward quickly to begin a positive attack. And he's finished it too!

Not seen us get forward like this for a while.
