Re: The Backroom Staff Thread

Nameless Probably a lot to be said for having an older, experienced head on the team. Sounds like he’s almost doingbthe DofF job.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (a)

Simon's Church We've barely created a chance from open play in the last few week so this is obviously going all in on the set piece route. Very little else going for it

NewCorkSeth He does overplay it yeah but whoscored sees 5 completed dribbles against 1 failed dribble :lol:

Hence why his rating is and has been so high all season.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stoke City (a)

People do under-rate him but whoscored gives completed dribbles a very high score which is why Ejaria is so high. Same for Richards actually, who is in team of the season so far. He also has a high pass success rate. I think we probably just expect more from him because he makes it all look so easy...

Re: How times change

It actually goes even further now. The lad of a friend of mine started "supporting" Paris St Germain when he was about 14. He doesn't even support Arsenal anymore (now they've become shit), let alone Reading. That's the impact of the Champions League coverage, although with that on BT Spo...

Oilroyal Thoroughly enjoyable game. It was like watching a Reading team of old..,.not too much pissing about. I’m happy with that and with a little improvement, over time we'll start picking up points. 3 at home and 1 away will do me!

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

RoyalBlue For the first time in ages teams will be starting to worry about playing us, rather than looking forward to it. Leeds fixtures permitting, expect to see some more stupid kickoff times as Sky realise Reading FC 19/20 are an entertaining team to watch!

Re: Bowen interview

From Despair To Where? I quite like this idea of a sporting director, someone who's not involved in the day to day running of the business or the footballing side but has inside knowledge of the game who can go out and look at best practice and see how we can implement it throughout the club.

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by as hard as it gets

Oilroyal Would love more of the same but without being too gung-ho. I think JG will have us do the basics right. Disciplined in defence, break up their play, win the seconds look to counter.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Adam Federici

Random HT thoughts: - Ejaria brilliant. The ball just sticks to his feet. - I really hope Puscas doesn't have a release clause. - 3 at the back is working. Morrison looks like a rock. - Richards continuing to impress. - Whatever incarnation of Swift this is, it's the one we've all been waiting for....

CountryRoyal Everyone forgets how utter toilet Al-Habsi was for us first season.

This is simply nonsensical drivel. He had a couple of very poor games, relatively early on, but went on to be a justifiable PotS.

Re: BFTG Forest Home

Great 3 points. Launched at Forest right from the off and that I think is what won it as they didn’t seem to be expecting it and they just couldn’t settle into their own game. And the great news on that is that that is what Gomes wants. A high press and tempo to make sure the ball quickly gets back...
