Re: BFTG - Bolton

As Kes would say, calm down to a panic mate. We are not worse than last year. Baldock doesn't look anything like as bad a signing as Aluko and I certainly don't recall seeing £5m bandied about for him. 5 mil was the figure Tim Dellor quoted. Ah, now I think I've spotted your mistake here. Is this l...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

I’d be seriously concerned about the judgement of anyone who thought McShane was MOM today. He was absolutely awful Gooding gave him MOTM. I would have thought the ex legend player and manager and professional footy pundit would have decent enough judgement. The credentials of whom, a few of us dis...

Re: Smallest Attack in Champ

Would still like to see another target man come in regardless but that won't happen now, think Meite should be put on the wing and Bodvarsson therefore would be our only target man striker (I think?) with Kermorgant terminating his contract, could do with another one especially if we are playing on...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Good to see the usual level of patience and perspective from the Reading fans on here :D :roll: I'm a pessimistic fan, always have been. I thought that our squad was poor before the summer dealings and not a lot better afterwards. So I wasn't expecting much from this season to begin with. Clement h...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

If we stick with him and allow him to build a team over the next few seasons, even if we drop down a division it will be the correct thing to do. There’s no magic fix to be had. As fans we need to understand the situation for what it is and give him time to love this club as we do. He's a massive u...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (a) sponsored by 3 league wins in 2018

Yeah Brum were terrible but still. And it was spin to say it was their reserves, I think their midfield was the same as they played va Swansea I was led to believe it was virtually a totally changed side from their previous game. It was. For Carabao Cup game, Brum made 10 (ten) changes to starting ...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

It was a dreadful performance. He admitted it. The players need a rocket not mollycoddling. It’s about time the squad started taking responsibility for so many pitiful performances. If they don’t like it then get rid. Not easy to get rid of players at this point. No probs with a rocket...behind clo...

Re: Clement OUT!!!!

Unlike some, was less than thrilled with Clement post-match. Basically threw players under the bus, heads will roll, etc. It’s his team and tactics, can only pull that stuff for so long. Assume he’s looking for reaction, we’ll see. In general, rather a manager who defends his players publically. No...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Kelly can't drive us forward with the ball because his legs are so short he just can't get away from anyone. Swift's going to have to play better for me to prefer him though. He was out of position, but for every trick he does better than Kelly, Kelly puts in a challenge Swift wouldn't get close to...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Just seen the goal. Was even worse than I expected. Sunday pub league level defending from a basic move Awful from Moore and McShane We will not win games if we defend like that. Not sure about you but I got the feeling his anger on BBC Berks was directed fully at McShane. Think the selection error...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bolton Wanderers (h) sponsored by Notlob is Bolton backwards

So very little has changed then. We're still playing without instinct which slows everything down because we're not aware of the passes that are on until it's too late. Plus there's so all movement and what there is has no cohesion. We still do nothing to stretch the space or unsettle the oppositio...

Re: BFTG Birmingham

Great to see Tyler Blackett starting to play with confidence again, I know he can frustrate people but on his day he can be a top player for us. Given time hopefully Paul Clement and his coaches can get more consistency from him. Yep, agreed. To coin a phrase...‘There’s a player in there somewhere!...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

If you can improve a side, even a position of strength, you do it, regardless of how well you feel you have played. (And that's from someone who, unlike some, has maintained that McShane has played well the first 2 games). Derby and Forest were good opportunities, and it may have been as good a time...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Was interesting to see Grealish play again even after all the speculation over him, where as Moore was no where near the 1st team. Yep, and according to our ownership, Moore was never going to be sold at any price anyway. Bruce, however, said they were waiting for the right offer for Grealish (whic...

Re: Rival Watch

Leeds are a very good side, think they are the real deal this season, they got the right manager. He only arrived there less than 2 months ago. Doesn't seem like he's on some plan that takes years to build things and implement his style/system, etc. (Leeds haven't made the playoffs in more than a d...

Re: Forest (A) match thread

This squad isn't good enough. Going to take time to improve it. Safely in mid table would an improvement. 7m wasted on Aluko. Better to have a long term plan. Changing managers frequently isn't the solution either. Not thinking about a playoff final this year then, LW? Mind you, in Clements' 10 gam...
