Re: BFTG Derby

I didn't go to Derby so my opinion isn't worth very much. But, another game without Joey or Evans in the holding midfield role and another defeat. It looked like we killed ourselves at Derby with defensive mistakes getting severely punished and what was an otherwise good Reading performance getting ...

Re: Possession Football!

Fulham away was the one game Liam Moore had to miss due to suspension and we immediately got hit for five. We also had Kermorgant out and Swift out. I think Fulham away was also down to selection issues and the players not adapting well when key players are missing. Moore was a big miss at the Cotta...

Re: CONFIMRED - Tiago Ilori

We're not a club who will spend £2 million on a player as cover. If we go 4 at the back then clearly McShane misses out as Ilori is a right sided player. We've missed McShane but him and Moore as a pair have hardly been rock solid and we definitely need to tighten defensively. Stam has used a flexi...

Re: CONFIMRED - Tiago Ilori

He may play at Derby if McShane is still feeling soreness in his wrist. If McShane is fully fit and raring to go then I think it will be Tiago that won't play. I can't see Moore or McShane being dropped either. They have formed a formidable partnership. At the same time I can't see Stam reverting to...

Re: Possession Football!

Against QPR, our team wasn't set up the way it normally is. We didn't have Evans or Van den Berg in the defensive midfielder role and our team lost its usual shape and organisation as a result. We just weren't our usual selves. Put Evans back into midfield and everything will be back to normal agai...

Re: CONFIMRED - Tiago Ilori

I don't think Stam is going to go three at the back. He will carry on with a 4-3-3 formation. Tiago will slot into the back four alongside McShane or Moore or he will play the holding midfielder role instead of Evans and Joey. He just adds depth to the squad. It will mean that one of McShane or Moor...

Re: Rumour - Tiago Ilori

FINALLY THE DEAL IS DONE!!!!!!

The Liam Moore signing might have been farcical. But I'm certainly glad the club were patient and persistent and got the deal done. Better late than never. What a signing Moore has turned out to be. Hopefully moore of the same with Thiago's arrival.

Re: Possession Football!

You're getting very boring with your Gunter hating Ian.

Gunter is an excellent right back. I can't think of anyone else in the Championship or half the Premiership that I would rather have in his position. You should chill out a little bit. Support your team.

Re: Rumour - Tiago Ilori

If the Premier League block the takeover would we see that as a good thing or a bad thing? If they block it, it is because they must think these Chineses buyers are just Zingarevich in disguise. They might run our great club into the ground. The Premier League might be doing us a favour by blocking ...

Re: Possession Football!

Our possession football is just a style of play. It is not the be all and end all. There is no reason why we can't be successful with it. But we need good players and plenty of work at Hogwood. There are lots of factors that make a good football team. Usually the teams that have the best players ten...

Except for when he regularly misses, like he did with two good chances last night. They weren't easy chances. Kermie did well with those chances. McLeary's ball was lofted up slightly too high for him so he couldn't get above it enough. He still managed to crash it onto the crossbar. The other chan...

Would it be possible for the government to allow RFC to monetize it's debt? That way we can become debt free.

I think the 6 nil game was at least the first game shown on Match of the Day that night.
