he's not, but he can do a better job there than Yiadom, Gunter or Richards there imo. Not much in it though

Re: Starting XI

Dunno, its very tough to pick at the moment. Lots of good cameos, from midfielders, but still not getting the results. Only Swift and Rino seem to be consistently playing well. I've somehow managed to only watch one game under Gomes and that was Swansea, so not in a great position to judge, but: New...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

sounds like a good chance of this happening anyway. Lots of reports of medicals etc

I quite like all of Baldock, Bod and Meite, but their seasons have been wrecked by constant minor injuries. Baldock's fitness record particularly is pathetic

Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

yep Bolton is massive. Be very very concerned if we lose that, esp if Rotherham pick up points at the weekend

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Really Blackett, Richards and Gunter should be able to cover LB. It really shouldn't be that much of a problem position New keeper would be nice. Anssi's distribution is awful. None of Bod, Meite or Baldock ever seem to be fully fit. Loader hasn't scored yet. Fairly low risk to sign Oliveira on loan

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Only seen him once, but looked handy. Didn't stand out as being only 16 in the U23 game

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Gomes didn't deny it in the presser, so suspect there is some interest there

Loan to the end of the season with a view to a perm would be fine by me. Hopefully would be right up for it, if not, its not real harm done

Re: Gomes BBC Berks Interview

Who is ‘we’ and ‘most of the fan base’? Much as I’d like to be the voice of the Reading fans, I’m giving my opinion, and that is that with the quality of player we have in the side we shouldn’t be bottom 3

Fine if people disagree on that btw

Agree to an extent

Tough one though - tried to get a experience tested striker last season and he was abysmal

Just not easy whichever way you try

Quick search round twitter suggest Gomes said something along the lines of him liking Oliveira and hardly denied being interested

Swift’s miss was crucial I feel at that stage - and yeah an absolute shocker.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

Very disappointed tbh not to get at least a point. Need to be getting some momentum going

Certainly looks like between the crap at the bottom up to Wigan. Very fortunate they all lost as well

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

Sounds like a standard performance this season. Pretty poor mixed with some crap luck

Bolton is massive obvs now. As is Villa.
