Re: Some Player Stats

Forgot Meite scored 17 goals last year.Presumably we would have gone down without him.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

It is something of a surprise to me how rarely retrospective red cards are not applied by the F A (?).I am referring of course to Pedro s forearm smash on Tom Holmes late on during Friday nights game.Now you cannot expect the authorities to forensically review every minute of every game.However Fri...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

No blame can attach to Pauno;but the acquisition of Gibson and Estevez has really screwed us over.Both were young kids totally unprepared for the Championship.Thus when injuries kicked in,both were unable to step up.We should have gone for a couple of experienced L1 pros.I wonder who made the decisi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

First half,Sarr was the difference.The worry was that 30 minutes in the second half ,when we did nothing.Pauno didn’t really have a clue what to do about the situation.Two nil down and bringing on Baldock and Alukho with 5 minutes to go was very poor decision making .Meite and Laurent really did sti...

Rafael 6 No chance with the goals Yiadom 8 MoTM Showed fire and won his battles Holmes 7 Did little wrong. Defended well Moore 6 Should have closed down Sarr but overall good second half Gibson 3 Awful. Truly awful. He has cost us a number of goals in only a few starts. No more please Rinomhota 6 W...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (a)

Araruna now back in “full contact” training, possibly may get a place on the bench Friday if no further setbacks. If he is OK that’ll at least give more cover at right back and in midfield for the run-in. Only seen Araruna play a couple of times;neat and tidy on the ball in midfield.But don’t reall...

Re: Injury watch 2020/21

Looks like Dorsett and Bristow may be seeing some time on the bench if Richards is out. That's us down to just Esteves for the bench of the senior defenders isn't it? Yiadom, Holmes, Moore, Gibson Tennai Watson He doesn't really count. He's clearly not involved in the first team squad. It looks lik...

Re: The run in.

Seems no McIntyre for rest of the season,and probably Morrison s season over.Gibson at CB might be required at some point.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (a)

I have to admit I gave the England games a miss last week.What were they playing for anyway,the Inter Toto cup or something;however I do enjoy watching Reading games when I can.I found last evenings game entertaining,enthralling and at times comic. I thought Barnsley started very well,then as they r...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (a)

Jagermesiter1871 That Sky commentary was horrendous. Never noticed it before but if you were just listening to the audio you'd have thought Barnsley were playing like 1970 Brazil and we were camped in our box.

Ref was awful as well, but that's a given.


TBF I don’t think he got a lot wrong.

Re: A Few Thoughts on the Last Eight Games

It would be fair to say in terms of investment,that we are not getting value for money out of our two highest earners.Moore has been alarmingly inconsistent since his first season,while Swift has never played anything like a full season since he has been here.TBF as a return on investment the rest a...
