Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

Gomes' tactics Spot on it seems. 5 at the back, a pacey and a strong player up front who caused them havoc when they had the chance. At 2-2 we hand it to him as a brilliant stroke of genius. BUT at 2-1 I was cursing him for doing the same old bullshit of trying to hold onto 1-0. How many times have...

Re: BFTG Villa

All I can say is that I've seen alot of these types of coming together, player stumbling whilst running side by side. Never seen a guy stamp on the other guys face with such force, seemingly no attempt by Mings to even avert... no change in his momentum, footing etc. In isolation it looks very bad. ...

Re: January Outs

Getting rid of players with bigger wages / longer contracts and replacing them with loan deals all over the place. I'd say preparations for league 1 are well under way.

Says who? He's played 20 odd games at Championship level. Either he's good enough or not.

Blackett should certainly not be sold unless we have cover coming in.

Re: Tiago llori

Do think he shapes up wrong when balls get flown in at the box, he also loses concentration on his positioning a lil too often too. Should be easy to coach him out of those though. If he was 18 I'd agree with you. But he's 25, it should already have been sorted by now. I think he's a decent player ...

Re: BBC Radio Berks

Don't understand why Dellor and Berks get such a hard time. In terms of an managerial appointment, this one had no margin for error, staring at relegation and with a oversized and under performing squad, we need someone who could come in and hit the ground running. This appointment was left field, n...

Re: CONFIMRED José Gomes

I'm trying to work this one out, maybe someone can help me... So we sack Stam, who was playing a possession style of football and was sleep walking us into relegation, with teams allowing us 60% possession and countering our obvious weaknesses. We then appoint Clement who was supposed to get us out ...

Re: New Manager

The club has been railroaded by Joorabchian into getting a Portuguese coach. Has it? Is there anything at all to back this up other than piss poor websites that simply print Joorabchian press releases verbatim? At one time he had ownership of a swathe of Portuguese based players, 3rd party ownershi...

Re: BFTG - Stokies

Can you defend Clement after that? The change (starting line up) he needed was made way too late. First half we were lucky to be 1-0. McNulty upfront on his own was a travesty. Half asleep 45-55. Lucky to be 2-2. When will the madness end? Please nobody @ me with we were good for the first xxx minut...

Re: Andy Rinomhota

Thought he was excellent, and just what we need at the moment. Nothing flashy skills or ability wise, but high work rate and willing to get up and down the pitch, make tackles and move the ball on.

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

Called this before he'd even played a game. Do the club do due diligence on signings [Rhetorical]? Just look at the guys twitter.

Hasn't got the character for a fight, no way he'll be knuckling down and training hard to win his place back.

Clement really has lost it.

Show me one season where Aluko has consistently been a 'really good player'?

Closest he got was that last season at Fulham, and we were stupid enough to buy him.

Re: [POLL] Is Aluko really that poor?

Seems totally devoid of a football brain, which is a shame, because he has the ability to be a half decent player.

If you look at his career history, his time with Reading is not a great deviation from the norm - i.e. he hasn't been very good.

Sounds ridiculous but the more I think about it surely it's not far off. The club is becoming a joke. - Owners that haven't really introduced themselves to fans, or say a word about their plans.

At this club it appears that we now have a DOF who pretty much handles all the transfers. So Clements job is training, picking our best team / formation, managing the games. So, without knowing much about about his training I can safely say he fails on the other two. Playing 4231 or 4321 etc aganst ...
