Re: Chris Davies in as first team coach - Terry Burton depar

Thought Chris Davies was excellent after the game when he immediately ran onto pitch to stop Blackman making a real nob of himself by confronting Cottrell. Steven Reid was also there giving support. Despite Cottrell's antics Blackman does have serious issues and the quicker he goes the better.

Re: Avram Grant. Steve Clarke worked with him at Chelsea, and AG recomended him to his good friend Paroj to replace Adkins.

Re: Aaron Tshibola

Thought he controlled the game, and recovered well from making the initial mistake that led to their goal, although MacShane had 2 chances to recover. Hope he starts against Derby, but what about Williams? Clarke has challenges all across midfield and attack on who he leaves out. What a change !

Re: Eamonn Dolan - Get Well Soon

Eamonn has worked tirelessly supporting the development of youngsters coming through the Academy, both all those who progressed to professional status and even premiership, and those who did not make it. For him it has been as important to help those that needed to find an alternative path as those ...

Re: Protest against EPPP

The main reason for achieving Category 1 status is that any other (Premier) club will be prohibited from signing players we have developed (unless the clubs agree to a non-tribunal determined fee). All other categories do not have this protection. So for Reading it is a simlpe cost v benefit analysi...

Re: Blooding Youngsters - When is the right time?

Under 18's beat Villa 4-0 without 4 regular first choices and with Villa playing 3 over age players ( max allowed) as they always want to beat Reading who they regard as a yardstick. Just as significantly the under 16's also won 4-0 But don't rush them. Our youngest ever players were Peter Castle an...

Re: Cardiff punishment

Sorry but its 3 - Wrexham. But the whole argument is valid as to why the Football League does not have a unified disciplinary process. It may have been mentioned before , but what is of great significance is that the timing of the hearing ( much later than ours) was AFTER Cardiff's run of games agai...

Re: Alex McCarthy No.1

Considering he has had a different back 4 in almost all his 1st team games I think he has been brilliant. All young goal keepers will make mistakes, so for once be tolerant because I believe we have a real gem on our hands !
