Re: BFI Follow Huddersfield

As Andrew posted, you know that the game wasn't up to much when posters go on more about the I-follow commentary (or on other occasions the ref) than the match itself. My mate Roger (rare poster called Tazewell Royal has always had a thing about scoring too many goals in one game and inevitably in ...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/footballleaguefc.com/reading-fc-2019-20-player-wages/ I know this is to be taken with a pinch of salt but above is a link to the wages of our players put together from various sources. Interesting that if every player leaves that is out of contract out our weekly wage...

Re: BFI Follow Huddersfield

"Dim Teller excruciating commentary" I think you are being too kind. Has only one agenda which is his own inane opinion. Was cautioned several times last night for my language and 90% aimed at him. With the odd exception I have never previously listened to Dim commenting on a televised ma...

BFI Follow Huddersfield

Not quite normal service resumed,but close.Despite what Dim said,it wasn’t quite as bad as the Play Off final.At least we created three good chances in the first half and a couple in the second.Huddersfield started the better;but really only had long,horribly placed punts.We then created our opportu...

Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Mc Intire was terrific today.Any doubt and he just pumped the ball away.That meant that we were never caught on the ball in the final third.That said what would Stam or Gomez have made of this ?

Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Bizarre game really.Luton hit the bar,have a good shout for a pen and then we ram in five in response.I just have this feeling that Luton were unbelievably bad defensively;however we fully exploited how bad they were.You only play what’s in front of you. IMHO Rafael 7 Not really tested. Osho 6 Very...

Re: The next 5 games - a key point in our season

Have Berkshire Live taken down their season predictor,if so why.Went through it a few weeks ago and we came in at 14th,which is respectable.Since the re start we have fallen off a cliff,and 14th looks very unlikely now.

Swift Offer

If it’s true offers have been received for Swift of £3.5 mill.This is bloody insulting and Howe should tell them to treble their offer or bugger off.Why however anyone would think he could play in the Prem escapes me.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a) sponsored by Sean Evers

Actually looking forward to this.No idea how we will perform ,and I bet Bowen doesn’t know either.We do have the better players;strikers apart.Yet we don’t seem to have the heart for it,or a clear idea of how to defend or score goals.The s**t will hit the fan big time if we are well beaten,and I can...

Re: The next 5 games - a key point in our season

We desperately need a reaction from the players against Luton.What happens if they put in another insipid performance like Tuesday night ?We started the season with a reasonable level of investment,and now it has come to this.I still think we can stay up without winning another game;surely they are ...

Re: Wigan in Administration

A poorly supported Club,with low fan base.They have been punching above their weight for years.Could not believe their level of recent results compared to us.However feel sorry for their 5000 (or so)die hard fans .Wonder what pushed them over the edge,Covid or were they in trouble before March.Whose...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

I watched the tail end of the Brighton game last night;even though they were three nil down,they still gave it a go and were very threatening .Our shower just did nothing against Brentford;they didn’t quite throw in the towel but it was close.What happens if we don’t get a reaction against Luton ?It...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Luton Town (a) sponsored by Sean Evers

I thought it was a bit strange last night that when it was very obvious we were going nowhere,that Bowen didn’t bring on Timbe as the Hail Mary option.Like Popa he must be really bad in training,and his times up at Reading. It is possible we can stay up without winning another game,however it looks ...

Re: The next 5 games - a key point in our season

One win should see us safe, however after today's defeat there really seems to be something not quite right. There was no fighting spirit, players not playing in their naturel positions and Bowen's whole demeanour looks like a man on borrowed time! Yes, Brentford are a very good footballing team, b...

Well many of us were worried that Brentford had too much for us,and all our fears came through.TBF to Reading we are very rarely totally outclassed,even against the likes of Dirty Leeds and WBA,but this evening we not only got our pants taken down,but Brentford ran off with our shoes,socks and Crown...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by no fans allowed

Mich Gooding is decent as a co-commentator, but Dellor is and always has been awful. Joel Hufford was great. Hence why he got better offers elsewhere. Yea I remember Hufford being great. It was clearly Richards and Miazga is quite a bit taller than Gunter - it’s poor! And the 1 reasonable thing Del...
