Re: Worst Reading XI

Obviously Reading Football club didn't exist before 05/06, so that's when I'm going to start the question from, but to be honest this shocking XI will take some beating! Even going back maybe to the Bullivant/ Burns era. Courtesy of Brain Traysers in the BBC Radio Berkshire section he named this be...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Richly amused seeing fellow Reading fans take the piss out the forest fans and wind them up, to the point they’ve dug out a “club song” that was released 4 years ago by an owner that no longer has much say in the football club and resorted to saying “you’re going down” as if that’s supposed to offen...

Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

Looks like it’d be a test of Jose’s man management if he comes here. Mind you players like Ben Arfa and Balotelli flourished under the right manager so there’s some form of hope. Can’t go any worse than how Adkins “managed” Drenthe

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

The technical type that possession football requires, decent end product. At the time of my comment, he is much better suited than dinosaur football Rowett got his stoke side playing(I am aware he has since been sacked and we’ll have to see if stoke continue with their trend of experienced British ...

Re: Rumour - Tyler Blackett to Wigan

Blackett has really improved since being a liability, definitely a lot more consistent. With Ilori linked to leave, Moore future still uncertain, McShane leaving and O’Shea unlikely to get a new contract either it would be stupid to let Blackett go on the cheap. Needs a new contract asap.

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

I feel crazy for suggesting this but Bojan on loan if the finances are right and his mental health is manageable. He just seems far too good on the Stoke bench. He’s had a good few spells in his career, initially at Stoke and Ajax I believe, and Gomes certainly would be able to get the best out of h...

Loader has only played like what 11 games of professional football? I think the championship is a great league for him to adapt to, we need to give him time because he won’t develop if he’s constantly in and out the first team. Give him until the end of the season then reevaluate his position. Ther...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

Before anyone else makes lazy comparisons to Stam there isn’t just one type of possession style, there are many types. If you genuinely think Guardiola and Stam have exactly the same tactics just because they like their teams keeping possession I have no hope for you. Also, I suspect half the probl...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

Not sure what to think, I’ve not heard particularly great things about him, some Portuguese followers saying he is a very average coach and that he’s nothing like a Luis Castro. Having said that I will remain indifferent about this appointment until I have an opinion of my own not on what somebody e...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

Some pretty uncalled for stick being sent to David Meyler, if I were him I wouldn’t have wasted a single second responding to any of the tweets.

Go relax for the weekend, then come back to training on Monday morning to address the issues.

Re: Do we really have billionaire owners?

There’s something called financial fair play... we’re also the third highest net spenders in the league... stop blaming the owners, blame the way it’s spent
