Re: Liam Moore Interview

This is the first podcast i have ever listened to - not a technophobe just generally can't be bothered with listening to crap. What a enlightening interview on both sides - Elm Park Royals you did an excellent and Liam Moore needs to be acknowledged for being so candid (mostly) with his answers. Ex...

Re: Swift to Leeds

Seems an ideal candidate for low cost back up to develop. But this sort of signing could suggest a lack of faith in the likes of Barrett, Frost and maybe Holsgrove stepping up? Not sure I'd want him to replace Swift and Eja on his own. Could be wrong but lower league punts never really seem to work...

Re: The League of 4

Strange things can happen and while it maybe unlikely, given previous form, anyone who thinks you can just sit back and relax for the final 270 minutes of this god awful miserable season because other teams will obviously continue to struggle needs their head examined. Well quite. We’ve been relega...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

It’s not just the saves though. Those two deadly accurate long kicks near the end could easily have brought us a goal. And the oppo by knowing he can do that, also know they can’t press to the extent they might like Urzzz again proving to be clueless. Martinez was at no fault for the goal and his h...

Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

Oliveira -> Miazga -> Martinez -> Baker -> Ezatolahi -> Ejaria. Realistically I think that means Oli, Baker and Ezatolahi maybe joined by Ejaria. This except Martínez won’t stay and Ejaria before Ezatolahi. So not this, but something about similar. If we get three of them we’ll be flying. They’ve a...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Going back to the 'analysis' of Gomes at the top of page 7 based on his past record, it remains bizarre to me that Reading fans take this approach having personally 'enjoyed' the Brendan Rodgers experience. A great record at Liverpool and Celtic, but he wasn't the right fit for Reading at all. Not ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Can we all just stop arguing? The clubs in a better position now. And that’s a good thing? Clement was uninspiring and dragging the whole club down. Gomes is doing something right. We might lose games but after 50 minutes we’re not giving up. In fact we’re getting late goals. Gomes has finally given...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Bod is scoring a goal every three games this season. That's roughly the level of our other senior strikers at their best. If we're planning on signing Oliveira for £7m (31 goals in 100 games at this level) then we should be looking to get £5m for Bod (16 goals in 55 games for us - translates to 29 ...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

Get Bod fit and him and Oliveira would get 15+ goals each.

Moore goes, get Miazga in. Maybe make him captain.

Baker, Rinomhota and Ezatolahi midfield.

Meite, Bod, Oliveira, Barrow, 2 more wingers.

That’s not a bad basis for a team.

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Happy to admit I personally was very disappointed with his appointment. Verging on angry. Given his cV and record I still can’t but feel the owners took a huge punt. It could have gone very wrong. Still not entirely sure what they saw on paper to appoint him. But it’s worked out well so far. But wo...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Jose Gomes is going a long way to making me happy to be a Reading fan again.

Haven’t had that for a long time. McDermotts first stint.

Whatever happens he needs to stay.
