Re: Under 23"s Supposedly not ready for first team football.

Could the lack of academy players breaking though into the first team be a sign that our academy isn't producing the right quality of players? - Is this a knock on from Eamon Dolan's replacement not being as good or something? Maybe this is why Martin Kuhl has been replaced?

Re: Is the idea of a striker flawed? Does Stam believe in total football?

A top club which can afford 2 or 3 of the best attacking midfielders around doesn't need a striker. Man Utd when they had Ronaldo, Giggs and Scholes could have got by without a striker if they were supplemented by Keane and someone else in midfield. Probably half of it is having really good attackin...

Re: Stop explicit language in the ground...

I don't go via town to get to games. Also they don't let you bring in bottles of drink into the ground. They've never stopped me, in fact they searched my carrier bag on Saturday with 2 bottles of water (one half drunk), a packet of crisps and a curly wurly in, put a green ticket thing on it and le...

Re: Stop explicit language in the ground...

I'm scared of where all this is going to end. Salad and healthy options to replace pies and burgers, or perhaps replaced by an m and s food shop, no alchoholic drinks for sale in the concourse. Can we hand back the keys and start football again somewhere else? id just like to say, if th eclub are r...

Re: Adam Le Fondre

"Prolific" isn't really the best stat to use. Jamie Cureton and Adam Le Fondre were the most natural goalscorers I think I've ever seen in a Reading shirt..... partly because they did little else, but also because that's exactly what was asked of them. I think the quality of opposition sho...

Re: 8.00 Evening kick offs

Clubs/Caterers/Vendors have worked out the optimal number of staff & facilities required to maximise beer, hotdog, pie and burger sales in that 15 minute window, plus TV ads..... if anything, I reckon the clubs, tv companies, everyone except the fans and probably the players will be pushing to m...

Re: The Stam passing game

I would like to see a Reading side that can switch from the current passing game to the traditional Reading game of 4-4-2 attacking wingers according to the opposition. Maybe as the quality of our players increases (particularly our striking options) we will be more entertained than we are at present.

Maybe they should go to a specialist supplier instead, assuming they've already tried Asda and Waitrose as well.
