Re: BFTG Brum

Ejaria hasn't been found out. Players of his ability aren't found out. He's just not making the right choices. He's young, he's talented and there's plenty of time for him to flourish. With experience comes better decisions. Swift's done it, so no reason he can't too. Totally agree. Ridiculous stat...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Glad I seem to have started an intelligent debate about 2 footedness! I am like most, right footed but just about competent on my left. I have a mate who is right footed naturally but practised so much on his left that it became his preferred foot. Over to you, John and Ovie.......! I'm struggling ...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

The comment about the modern player not being two footed is very true.When I first started watching football,all the top footballers use to comment about working on their weaker foot.I seem to recall that our 2005 side only had one player who was genuinely two footed,and that was Doyle.Even at the ...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Really enjoyed the game. After their early goal, I thought we were in for a pasting--but gradually we got into it and gave them a proper game. Which amazed me, considering how crap we were against Wigan and Barnsley. (I know we beat Barnsley, but Barnsley were poor compared to Atlético Wigan.) This ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Plymouth Argyle (a) sponsored by Glen Little

Really enjoyable game, end-to-end stuff, and for a long time the result looked like it could go three ways. Reading seemed a bit lethargic to me in the first half. But it turned out they paced themselves better than Argyle, who ran out of steam towards the end. The styles were a complete contrast, w...

Re: The womens world cup

All sorts of offence being taken on Twitter and by sensitive flowers such as Piers Morgan. With all the humourless posturing going on in our politics these days, have we now joined those c...

Re: Back from the ****

Definitely lack of character and lack of grit. Our last promotion team was not ultra talented, but you had great character from the likes of Karacan, Tabb, and Leigertwood, and even Noel Hunt, and then leadership from Roberts. Yep, Jason Roberts was a good signing for us. Obviously a good player, b...

Re: Back from the ****

I go to games now and am BORED, expecting few half-chances, the inevitable cock-up, but the saddest part is that feeling that too many of the eleven on the pitch, really look like they don't give a toss. I agree with your comments. But I still believe players give a toss--it's not just about Readin...

Re: Results required for us to stay up in the final day

Bouncing straight back is not that common and just ask Sunderland fans if going down to come back is a good thing I agree. We're in no fit shape to bounce back up. Southampton, Sheffield United, and Leeds actually took a long time to get back up. Coventry went on sinking. Charlton may miss out agai...

Re: Back from the ****

Fingers crossed for results going our way next week. Fingers crossed the results go against us, then we can be deservedly relegated and we can get rid of this shower of gutless sh*te and rebuild and start all over again. We'd be stuck with a lot of them and the new manager, exactly the same as when...

Re: Whats Clement got to work with ?

IMHO Clement: Bit of a show pony-why did we buy him. Looks and plays a lot like Piazon, although not as technically gifted, but a lot more physical. Martin: Last of the seven; seen him absolutely boss us-whenever he has been in opposition-he is a class act-but has proved to be totaly ineffective, a...

Re: Reading v Derby prediction thread

After the improved performance in the later stages at Boro and the performance at Forest, I see us as improving--so I'm predicting a win for Reading.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by things can only get better

I know how you feel about Gunter, and I've defended him in the past, but not tonite. With 5 mins left in a game like that, you keep everything in front of you, and you make them beat you. 1-0 up, away, you know your team has conceded a lot of late goals. He's a veteran pro, yet it was a school boy ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by things can only get better

Aluko, pound for pound, must rank as one of the worst signings ever made by Reading. Don't get me wrong he has talent, he can beat players and I shall support him every time he's on the pitch but overall his end product is at best inconsistent and there is this continual tendency to always drift an...
