Re: Rival Watch

Brentfords front three are proper bottle jobs when it matters. Benrhama looked hopeless. Ref was lenient on Fulham as well. How many fouls did Hector commit?. And one more thing, why do modern keepers leave massive gaps. Keepers always concentrated on making the goal look smaller....now they seem t...

Re: Rival Watch

windermereROYAL 9 play-off campaigns for Brentford 0 promotions, them and Sheffield utd (8-0) are worse than us in that respect.


Finals hurt more so should count for at least double!

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

My understanding is we originally offered him a reduced deal (which was understandable, he’d not done anything to earn in improvement) That was withdrawn and replaced by an improved deal on the basis of his recent cameos. I’m not sure how you can ‘stuff’ someone on wages. You make them an offer, th...

Re: Osho - best crosser of the ball at the club. Discuss.

Aaand.... there goes the best crosser at the club as far as I'm concerned. Leaving us with Obita and Blackett, who at least some others here feel were better crossers. Oh, hang on.... Not sure how big a thing it is for a reserve full back to be the best crosser of the ball. He was unlikely to play ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Old Man Andrews Reading FC not releasing their new kit designs one week before the start of a season? What on earth is going on?


Don't worry about it. They'll compensate by ensuring they're not available to buy until at least six weeks after the season has commenced!

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

Surely if we are as tight for money as people think, the best thing would be to sign Ejaria at the £3M agreed, and then promptly sell him on for a profit as everyone seems in agreement that he is worth far more than the agreed fee? I initially thought that but, given how well our supposed financial...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

We’re no worse off than if SJM had succumbed to a heart attack at any point after he took us on. Most clubs are now totally dependent on a rich owner, it’s how the game has gone. The report thoughseems to simply be a historical run through of where he got his money. I don’t actually see anything th...

Re: STH Options

So as we already know, the US are taking a somewhat less cautious approach to handling COVID! That having been said, Atlanta Utd have contacted their season ticket holders to advise them that attendances at any game are likely to be restricted to somewhere between 10,000-20,000 fans, in a stadium t...

Re: Confimred loan - Ovie Ejaria

I sincerely believe Ejaria has the ability to be a superstar Second, I just LOVE watching him on the ball. He is also excellent at ball-winning Remember, as said elsewhere, he is heavily marked meaning the other outfield players have more space. If he only improves by 20% in a season (he is young!)...

They are the players who have made it worth watching Reading this year. An adequate goalie who is not quite commanding enough and doesn't mak...

Well, the guy said the right things last night.

Re: Bowen, Sack? Yes or no?

Last night Gooding, like others, claimed that Bowen has improved things. The reality is somewhat different if you look at the trend. After the initial new manager bounce that largely contributed to our safety from relegation, there has been an increasing decline in performances and results. If my ca...

Re: BFIFOLLOW Swansea

Nigel Adkins was awful. Pass it around the back for 70 minutes then hoof it upfield. Anyone who wants that back is off their nut. We've had a lot of managerial turnover, so maybe it would make sense to stand by bowen, but something has got to change. Either we invest in some wingers and start playi...
