Nice touch from Anton to speak with him at length after his goal, obviously praising his ethics. Gunter joined in too, Alex looks to be a popular squad member.

I would imagine Anton is a good man to have around.

Alex is also the club's biggest cheerleader on Twitter. Even when he's not in the 18, he's always got a little graphic and a 'come on Reading let's get 3 points' style rally call. He certainly seems like a good chap, but I don't see him getting a look in unless we start playing a 2-7-1 formation. Shame.

(RoyalJack) Anton has pleasently surprised me....when his work on the field was curtailed, his work off of the field was well recieved in the community.

Anyways....back to Alex

Cracking goal....and how many times have we seen the opposition (and other teams on the FL Show) fire goals in a similar fashion?
Simple, that's the way to do it.........More please

A couple of months ago before his injury he was thought by many fans to be a crucial member of our starting eleven and in fact our drop in form was put down by many as being because he and Tish were no longer available.
I would have thought that he would have been Brian's type of player rather than Piazon or Kanu.
As the new lad seems to have played an important role in Walsall's excellent first half of the season and we have gone and bought him there is every chance that he will be a starter.

If Tish is fit the midfield looks to be big on numbers and it will be interesting to see who Brian thinks is his best 3 or 4 and if he choose to go with 2 wingers as we did for much of his time and the time of Coppell with both Brian and Steve having been wingers themselves.

He's just been totally scuppered by Norwood's PotS form. They seem to me to be similar and there for the same role. Only one can really play and that's clearly the permanent Norwood who's in fine form.

On Quinn, much as I rate him... I think Williams offers us a little more threat going forward (less defensively mind) and you'd be hard pressed to find a manager who'd drop Williams considering his energy, drive and goalscoring record this season.

Seem to get this report a lot after his brief cameos so perhaps we should be looking to sign him permanently, also Brian said of him after the game (according to CW)

"He was terrific. He is one of the nicest people I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s a terrific professional. He came on, kept the ball and calmed us down. He was very good and scored a great goal.

It has been difficult for him. But he trains right, he does things right, he lives his life right and he joins in.

He’s been very much part of what we’re trying to do here. Everybody together. I can’t speak highly enough of him
."



And he was actually on for 15 minutes ...

I thought he looked good - refreshed the side. Piazon had been struggling for a while after a knock to his lower back.

The goal was great - came out of nowhere when everyone least expected it.

Yep - this. You'd be mistaken for thinking he played week in week out as captain.

But Brian is such a 442 man I can't see him changing things (hence Quinn being benched)

Be on the Bench or squad member but not start.

They were definitely shit as a pair under Clarke, a bit less so under Adkins. But they both seem to be playing really well this season on the whole. I'm not filled with confidence in them as a pairing, but I think they're doing well enough at the moment.
