Not what you want or fancy, but better to get back out there than sit at home waiting/w@nking for something better to come along?

Re: Strikers.

As a fellow Yank, I'd like to see Andrija Novakovich get a serious opportunity with Reading this coming season - he'll be out of contract in July 2019. If he does not look good enough in the preseason, he might be sold (cheaply, at best) to a club where he could get playing time. While it is only t...

Re: How Are You Feeling?

Disappointed? Resigned? Even, somewhere, a bit curious. I'm sure there is no scenario in which relegation would be a good thing. The sequence of events make it seem unlikely, but sickeningly possible. What happens in Cardiff today is unlikely to be where it is decided. If, somehow, this sh1t shower...

Re: Team for cardiff

CBA to read the previous 6 pages obvs so apologies if this has already been suggested but this is probably the one and only time I would start with JVDB. Warnock will try and bully us and as we know, bullies need to be stood up to so I'd put Joey in for his last ever game in a Reading shirt and tell...

Didn't seek it out as such, was just looking to see what people were thinking after the play-off defeat. Turns out there was a fair amount of misplaced optimism :|

Re: BFG QPR

More entertainment in one game than I've seen all season at home. Back to the Reading of old, blood and thunder never say die attitude. However it has to be said QPR were far better than us (apart from the first 20 minutes) and should have left with something. Biggest thing for me was our fitness le...

Re: Whats Clement got to work with ?

As for the OP, Clement has more than enough to work with when you look at the talent in the squad. There are some basket cases, like Aluko but I can't see him getting much game time under Clement. Stam was unable to instill the confidence and belief required and this coupled with a complete lack of ...

Re: Nigel Gibbs

Good that Gibbo is back if this is true. Shame we couldn't get Sal Bibbo back in place of Beasant as well but equally I'm pleased that Bib has a good position at Arsenal apparently.

Re: Definitive Paul Clement whelmguage

I'm 6/10 on the whelmage scale. Let's face it, we're Reading and it's about as good an appointment as we could have hoped for. I don't really buy into the whole " he's been sacked by Swansea and Derby therefore he must be sh1t" thing. After all we sacked Rodgers and he's gone on to be rela...

Re: How Many Points To Stay Up?

Because of the utter shitness of the other teams around us we'll probably stay up. But if Stam stays in charge we'll go down next season anyway. It's just utterly shambolic.
