Re: BFTG - Bristol City

My observations: :arrow: Starting with the most important. When it’s hot and sunny Reading fans, WEAR SOME oxf*rd DEODORANT! Absolutely stank in the away end :arrow: Gunter was poor, Blackett looked scared again. It’s weird, I was convinced Blackett was a left sided centre back in a 3 and nothing e...

Re: Swift to Leeds

Of the players we have who I think could realistically be sold for £4/5m+, I think Swift is the one we could most afford to do without. Losing Moore, Barrow, Meite, Rinomhota (if Tish went for that so could Rino) would be a bigger deal IMO. Think he would suit premiership better than Champ. Would r...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

Looks Like Bolton are in serious trouble now, their proposed takeover is in the can and they have a high court hearing tomorrow. They may be disolved or at best given 12 point deduction. Not sure where that would leave the rest of us in the relegation battle. Birmingham may also get 12 its deducted...

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

windermereROYAL J low keep spouting on about eza not being in Gomes plans even if he`s fit, That would be bloody crazy, one of the other loan signings would have to make way for him in the match day squad once they are all fit though.


Yes can't understand why Gomes seems to be so negative about him

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

Felt thoroughly disheartened after that. I can't remember us making one decent tackle (apart from Yiadom), nor win one 50/50 ball. If the others players are better then the least you can do is compete physically. Why is he picking players like East and Loader for such a game. Didn't expect a win but...

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

We weren't bad :lol: :lol: Couldn't string three passes together, yeah they're top of the league, but what's the point of turning up if they steamroll us each time. We do not have a midfield, demonstrated by their cutback for the first goal. I don't understand. Meyler would make a difference to thi...

Re: Gomez tactics may still take us down

Laughable thread. When the original poster can't even spell the managers name correctly the opinion that follows can't really be taken seriously. Good point and mistake on my part for which I apologise. Not sure it has a lot of bearing on the points though tbf. I shall be watching your posts in the...

Re: Gomez tactics may still take us down

I don't think I was advocating playing the long ball but trying to play our passing football more in the opposing half rather than our own. I agree Gomes is adapting and we do less passing out from the back but a lot of the goals we concede come from mistakes in our own half losing the ball. Apparen...

Gomez tactics may still take us down

Unbelievable last few minutes yesterday which gives us two wins in a row. If we are honest though we were a bit fortunate to win both games. Not because the other teams were better but because our tactics put us under so much pressure that we make mistakes. We were dominant in the first half against...

Re: We are as good as down!

The bottom four are all crap , none of this four are going to embark on a wonder winning streak . It will come down to who grinds out the odd dirty win and scrappy draws,maybe 0-0's All four teams are shot of confidence and are scared of losing , hence we witnessed the type of game yesterday. As pr...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by all or nothing

There seems to be a level of arrogance amongst some Reading fans. Shown by a few post match comments and the pockets of booing at full-time. We are 21st for a reason, we can't really expect to win any match really. A draw today isn't horrible but is highly disappointing considering how close we wer...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Glad we got the win considering how hard we made it for ourselves in the first half. Much improved in the second half thanks to the manager's changes. Hopefully he's now realised that Swift and Kelly can't play in the same midfield, we need to play with proper width and square pegs (Richards) do no...

Re: Rumour Adel Taarabt,

Although he could be brilliant he was a real troublemaker at QPR. According to Neal Warnock's biography he went missing a lot, did not train but because he was so good he still picked him. Result, allegedly a lot of unrest from other players. Good book but as per usual good old Neil blames everythin...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Often played as a defensive midfielder but not really suited to that. Better going forward as he has a good shot. Think it would have happened for him by now at Reading so new start might be what he needs
