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: who do you want as the new manager

Love the banter, that's the beauty of HNA, those of us who've been here for many years know it's about opinions , debate and discussion without getting abusive.

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.

Re: Robin Friday Info reqd

I learned something today that I never knew before about Robin Friday's home debut against Exeter that day. It was his first game for us as a professional footballer. The previous two away to Northampton and Barnsley were played as an amateur on non-contract terms. The programme for Exeter refers to...

Re: Robin Friday Info reqd

Robin, his debut was indeed on 27/1/74 away to Northampton Town. The following game was away to Barnsley on 3/2/74, in which he scored his first goal for us. And the next game was his home debut against Exeter on 10/3/74, in which he scored twice. 10/2/74, not 10/3/74. Obvs a typo and pedant mode i...

Re: Message to Tim Dellor and Konathon Low

Doesn't really matter whether it's all or just a few fans (& I'm not saying it's my opinion either), it's clear that there's vocal group of fans unhappy with what Stam's doing. Dellor himself is pretty vocal on the team's and specific individuals' performances and he appears to soft-pedal those...

Re: Stam to be sacked?

He'll be here until the end of the season now I reckon. He seems to have survived the utter clusterfukk that was the Sheffield game and if the owners were ever going to act it should have been directly after that game. The fact that they didn't and remained completely silent leads me due deduce that...

Re: Mentor for Stam/Turnaround consultant

I suppose it would provide him with someone else to blame rather than taking responsibility himself. But no, he took the job, brought in his support staff (and got rid of some in the process), he's spent millions on players and implemented his preferred playing "style". Why give him the lu...
