As I seem to say every game now, it would be nice for us to really go for a win from the start. I don’t mean play reservedly and feel our way into the game before conceding the inevitable sloppy goal out of nothing. I mean push up, get full backs forward and get some crosses and shots in. Murphy and Brereton won’t score out of nothing and Cash can’t create everything on his own.

Reading, on a run of poor results and poor form, are playing us at exactly the right time - everyone ends their poor run of form with a win at the City Ground at the moment.

Karanka with his eye on not losing is unlikely to be adventurous and go for 2 upfront. And how long is it since we won at home, or even scored a league goal?

wanting to see a positive attacking side being built that goes for it no matter what, if they lose you still feel proud, taking risks fielding young players, gambling, empowering players, making average players into good teams, having shots on goal,

I don't do booing but the team do need to give us something other than a half arsed effort and being 2/3 nil down. Where the flying fox do we get a positive mindset from after what we have been witnessing.


Change a few names and that could have come from HNA.

Strikes me this could be a proverbial 0-0 borefest.

There, posting that's set the cat amongst the pigeons. Can't be a 0-0 borefest now

Is Chelsea Barcelona on BT Sport ? I hope so....because I haven't got BT Sport. Would rather watch uphill ski jumping.

Back on to the thread please.

Reasonably happy with the line up. Shame Swift isn’t fit and obvs Joey playing yet again, but about right otherwise

Feel Bacuna is very much key for us tonight
