Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (h) sponsored by Tony Barrass

I fear it's a case of "oxf*rd, we're shit without him" and rush him back too soon only to breakdown again. Saying that I didn't think the injury looked that bad when he got it. Bar miraculous recoveries I think it's time to shake things up. ...................Southwood .......Holmes, Morr...

Re: The 4 needed in January

Sure Rino would do a job there but I think we’re on at RB tbh Make more of an issue of it than there really is. Both Holmes and Esteves are ok there imo Esteves is abysmal. Like having a little boy there. We need proven Championship quality, not someone who sounds good because he's played for Benfi...

Re: The 4 needed in January

Why? a) there isn't anything wrong with Rafael, he is a fine 'keeper for this level b) if we did want to bin off Rafael, Southwood should be given a shot before we get a new 'keeper in c) it could be worse, we could have that clown Samba that Forest have There’s a lot wrong with Rafael, he’s poor a...

Re: Back to the Mad Stad

How was it for those who went? Concourses open? Beer? Sounded good on TV. Could only buy snacks and non-alcoholic drinks outside the stadium, nothing was open inside. Presumably it's fairly easy to smuggle in a hip flask at the moment. Can't see them being too keen on the usual OTT body searches in...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by as tough as it gets

As weird as it sounds I think the best player that is fit and able to hold the ball up bringing others in to play and also hands down actually beating a player in front of him is Ejaria. Probably an awful idea playing him up top but he’s wasted on the wing at times. Is Ejaria good? He might look pr...

Re: Rival Watch

Hound Forest are utter gash. 1 point and 1 goal in 7. Hughton out.

That 3rd Brentford goal today was utterly embarrassing

It's absolutely wonderful to see, I am loving it

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (h) sponsored by Neil Webb

Whilst this fixture should be relatively straightforward, we must be extremely cautious of the quality possessed by Harry Arter. A player of his calibre could really cause us problems. I hope those lucky enough to be in the stadium tomorrow are appreciative of being so lucky to be witnessing him per...

Joao has scored 4 games in a row, I'd be worried about the law of averages saying he doesn't make it to 5. Tr...

Re: Back to the Mad Stad

So as I understand it, if we don`t get full capacity this season the retainer will come off of next seasons ST. My question is, will the individual tickets you pay for this season come off of that total too? *puts on tin helmet* :D All you need is here: https://ticketing.readingfc.co.uk/screenloade...

Re: Rumour - free agents

I'm very disappointed we haven't signed Daniel Sturridge. Even to offer him a pay as you play contract would have been the least we could have done.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wycombe Wanderers (h) sponsored by Keith Scott

Wycombe are out of their depth and are here via a free ticket into the playoffs because of covid, games in hand are never points in the bag particularly when playing catch up late in the season. I can see the next 2 games being very similar - two very direct ex league one sides - and we will have t...

Re: Swift to... Southampton

Midfield ended up too open with those two I seem to recall him being in around the squad when we lacked a proper holding midfielder. He worked well with Quinn and Tshibola and I reckon he’d have worked well with Joey More nonsense from you I see. No one would "work well with Joey" because...
