Re: In or Out?

His dutch mate Koeman looks like he won't survive. Just shows, you can have what looks like a great team on paper but put a dutch system in place, the opposition puts a high press in and your f#cked and ineffective. He will change nothing next week and it will be the same old sh+t. De Boer and the ...

Re: Sheffield Utd - Back from the game

Not me, my boy who was scouting Sheff Utd for upcoming game v LUFC, (he's an RFC fan and former ST holder) "Woeful. Men against boys. Only shining light was Swift who made a huge difference. No other positives whatsoever. Pathetic." Rather think I trust a professional's view on the perfor...

Re: Sheffield Utd v RDG Predictions

Goddamnnit, how's a fella supposed to predict accurately if the XI and shape changes every week.

Our injury record has been horrendous for about a decade now ffs.

Re: Relegation

Difficult to see any decent strikers would come here if we are in the bottom 6. on loan maybe, but no long term deal. Any decent striker will come here if we offer them good increased money, talk up ambition to go up and show them last year's league table. Players and managers frequently take sidew...

Re: Sheffield Utd v RDG Predictions

If you're gonna copy someone, shouldn't it be one of the 4 people ahead of The Hound? :lol: Hound's won points on six occasions. The nine ahead of him currently other than me have been right 4, 4, 4, 4, 2, 5 and 3 times. I'm 6 times. So if you want to play the long game and go for someone to copy w...

Re: Sheffield Utd v RDG Predictions

A good example of WTF? Does this mean a Reading defeat? Tbf to Mid Sussex he's following your rules Snowflake, why don't YOU run this. I have said, if it isn't EXPLICIT, the first score given is Reading. END Of course, but then he wouldn't have had a chance to remind people that it's his game I'm w...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

If you compare the possession stats for the last 4-5 games to the pass ratios, he's basically spot on. I think out by a max of 0.3% points

Re: Reading fc season predictor league

Snowflake, I have been opening the last few predictions threads with the post saying "same rules as last time" I added HT SCORE/RESULT FOR EXTRA INTEREST, especially as (then) we hadn't scored in the first half I clarified first scorer as first READING scorer because I don't give a flying...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

LOL at people worrying that the possession stats don't add up to 100. It makes little sense for them to add up to 100. Perfectly possible for neither side to have possession of the ball at times. It's only a guesstimate anyway...... Possession is just a percentage of the passes each team made, so i...

Re: Sheffield Utd v RDG Predictions

Crikey, how to know which RFC will turn up. Lets try positivity for now, as I'll inevitably see a shit show defeat next home game.

1-2 Reading
Bod, Aluko


Oh oxf*rd it, I've gone opposite to Hound again.

Re: Reading fc season predictor league

I don't understand why this has gotten so complicated and convoluted. Or why it seems to change game by game. What's difficult or rubbish about: Correct result - 1 Correct score - 3 (Partial correct RFC scorers - 1 or similar) (Complete correct RFC scorers - 2 or similar) Fin. There used to be one o...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by one swallow does not a summer make

Do we stick with Bacuna at RB and Gunter at LB? It looked pretty good last game? I guess the only worry is if they have a great right winger (don't know the opposition very well) Gunter might get caught out? Hopefully Barrow and Bodvarson start. He's surely less likely to get caught out than Blacke...

Re: In or Out?

Mid-table safety has to be a failure given our spending and position last season. A tolerable one, admittedly. Either way you're right that it's bonkers to be talking about a departure so soon. Re-read his post he suggested that for last year, not this. Yep, that's what I was getting at. We unexpec...

Re: In or Out?

I've not followed this thread, but I'd just like to say that anyone seriously questioning Stam's position, just 11 league games after a playoff final (in a season when mid-table safety would have been a success) is absolutely fcuking nuts. Mid-table safety has to be a failure given our spending and...

Re: Dutch possession based football R.I.P.

To an extent i think the talk about systems and such like is a little overblown anyway Its just a case of playing well sometimes. We've seen success over the last couple of years playing all sorts of styles - Leicester with their counter attack, Chelsea with their 3-4-3, Us and Hudders last year wi...

It's a bit try hard and over done, but I chuckled. Plus who gives a oxf*rd about pissing off Leeds fans. If it was a decent club maybe.

Re: Leeds v RFC Back from the Tele

yeah. Surely the ideal is Barrow and Aluko right up on the full backs and Dadi in a classic no 9. You can always use McCleary and Beerens when required to give us more disciplined shape in a 4-4-2 type set up when required With Swift sat behind Dadi we would be unstoppable :shock: Exciting attackin...
