Re: Done Aluko to China!

He's been better of late, but still not good enough and getting rid of this ludicrously poor value signing would be fantastic news.

Re: Loan Player options to buy?

I seem to remember Ezatolahi making a couple of the type of runs that Sidwell used to excel at, coming late into the box and getting on the end if crosses which is what leads me to think he's got more to his game than just being a defensive midfield minder. I'm not saying he doesn't have more to hi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by Nicky Forster

Really not sure about that team, no Blackett or Aluko anywhere and Swift dropped/rested I’m ok with it. Swift will surely start next Saturday. I am happy with the other changes as Blackett really is a liability and Aluko was anonymous against Blackburn. Blackett has been one of our most consistent ...

Yep. He's been excellent this season. One of the best in the Champ.

Shame we didn't appreciate him and surrounded him with shite.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by Nicky Forster

I'm guessing there were a couple of knocks from the midweek game. Just to stop some of you going into meltdown and not being able to realise players get injured. :lol: If anyone realises players get injured its Reading fans ffs, every game we have at least one mysterious injured player who's missin...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by Nicky Forster

Swapped the wingers again. Clearly a strategy of Gomes Not really happy with Kelly in CM but then I never am. Otherwise a half decent line up. It’s all about the back 5 and Oliviera really anyway If he's determined to switch up the attacking three in midfield every game, I'd really prefer he picked...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (a) sponsored by Nicky Forster

I actually like that on the whole.

Not keen on yet more lots of changes. Harsh on Swift and not keen on Richards over Blackett even if Tyler didn't have a great last game.

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

I think that’s Vision speak for “you’re talking absolute bollocks my friend”. There's some pretty valid stuff in the first paragraph, but as usual Vision is right about the tone of the rest being pessimistic and Gomes having limited options. The current good run is largely made by that one win agai...

Re: New beefeater

Because a pub needs trade more than 23 afternoons/evenings a year . . . . ^this, always this. Coupled with rugby games it's most weekends. If its not profitable to open during the week then don't and only open at weekends when games are on. Position it near Kennet island or the new hp development a...

Re: Loan Player options to buy?

Full Iranian international at 21 or whatever and played in the WC. Iran a decent side - some of their other players are going for £20m I’m pretty sure he is a decent player from what I’ve seen Yep. But we should understand what sort of player he is. He's not going to score or create many goals and ...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

he was a very very good shot stopper. cant compete with those two but is probably the best of the rest Had a bad start, but was good after. I know he had little competition, but he got PotS two years running for a reason. I agree, not at the level of Marcus or Shaka, but beyond Federici and certain...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Oliveira has a touch of the Kitsons about him. Been warned by a few Nodge fans that he'll soon lose interest and become a hindrance though. Hopefully just bitterness talking. Don't reckon he will lose interest when he's working with Gomes and his team of coaches. In terms of man management I'm incr...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Looking at the highlights, Meite did not have a good game. Not only did he miss two very good chances that nearly cost us dear but he is also at least partly at fault for their equaliser - somewhat lazily (IMO) and slowly running back towards his own goal completely aware of the goalscorer racing u...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

I think I'd have preferred Kelly and Baker. Swift really is only suited to the number 10 role and usually doesn't do a very good job of getting stuck in, he also takes too many risks in our half. Swift and Aluko in midfield doesn't work for me. It's just too much fluff and not enough crunch. One or...

Both him and Martinez look a different class to the rest of this shit show. I’d add Miazga to that. Nelson clearly has a shit load of quality.
