Why we are sh*t

Reasons why we are so sh*t. 1) Al Habsi went to Islamic State of Saudi Arabia. Ali made at least 1 world class save in every game and this kept us on the right side of the scoreline most of the time last season despite the fact that we were playing sh*t and were unconvincing most weeks. Most of us w...

Re: Which was worse

I have never been more bored watching Reading FC than I am now. I think it is more than Stam and his football that makes me feel like that though. I am optimistic however that it wouldn't take a lot of tweaking and we can be a side challenging for the goodies again. We are not far away. The Champion...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

Personally, I don't really see any problem with the fans taking the p*ss out of the players. It sounds like it was all banter. Nothing vulgar, racist, homophobic or abusive. Try watching a non league game and it is 100 times worse. Those players earn nothing compared to our players and they can take...

Re: Thank You Stam

Credit also due to the owners. The appointment of Stam was a master stroke and just the tonic the club needed. With so many players demotivated and seemingly unhappy with life and the direction their careers were going Stam was a real breath of fresh air. His footballing ideas and winning mentality...

Re: Stam's comments - only a matter of time now

TF - hasn't he already taken punts in the likes of Mendes and Meite? And they haven't worked. Let's not forget most fans were pretty critical of signing Kermogant at the time and he didn't pull up any trees pre-Christmas last season either. Yes he has. And there is nothing wrong with that whether i...

Re: Stam's comments - only a matter of time now

Isn't the obvious comment that Reading's strategy is dependent on having a decent forward on the pitch - i.e. Yann Kermogant. Any club that wants to be successfull needs to have a decent striker on the pitch. It has to be the strategy of every club in football. You can complain about why someone el...

Re: BFTG Millwall

Am I the only one that would just like to see an old fashioned 442 in the next game, I'm sick of all these weird and wonderful tactics. 442 with pace down the flanks and two strikers playing off each other. This used to be the most common of all positions but is pretty rare these days especially in...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by first half goal search

I think Stam thinks that we do attack attack attack. He thinks we play attacking football.

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

At the beginning of the month it would have been inconceivable that Stam wouldn't be Reading manager in February. Whilst it's way too early to say he should go, there's a palpable feel of the tide turning tonight and right now it feels inevitable that there's going to be a sustained run of poor res...

Re: Renewed pessimism/interest

Have just lost meekly to Millwall...assume that this thread will now kick up a gear or two!! So far we have words like meek, languid and timid to describe our style of play. No passion of pace in evidence. What I do know is that without a striker, there will never be a sense of purpose to a team's ...

Re: BFTG Millwall

Let's get this straight, Stam choked at Wembley last season. I've dwelt a lot on what happened that day and I cannot get away from the fact that we didn't set ourselves up in any way to get a result that day. There was barely any forward motion, no penetration whatsoever and a lot of listless backw...

Re: BFTG Millwall

I thought the support was fantastic away to Millwall tonight. We had some good numbers there. It was good to see so many youngsters. Lots of Teens and early twenties in the crowd kitted up in their designer gear and making lots of noise. There were plenty of blokes who had finished work in London an...

Re: BFTG Millwall

I was at the game. Even if we had won tonight I was going to come on here and have a good moan. Tonight's game typified everything that is wrong with our team at the moment. We don't look like a proper football team. The possession is pointless. Whenever we get into attacking areas there is no one i...

I've been getting into sports betting big time in the last 12 months. I'm convinced you can make good money on it. Why do I think that. A couple of times I've started off with a tenner and managed to grow my betting account to around £900 the first time and then £2000 the second time before blowing...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

Stam's job is take pressure off the team. If the team are being told that they are expected to win the league then that level of pressure will negatively affect their performances. That is all that Stam is concerned about. The players need to feel free from the weight of expectation so that they can...
