Re: Will we get found out again?

Odd to worry about us not having a Plan B when we've already used at least 3 formations and used different players to do different roles. That's exactly why I'm concerned; those other formations/roles lead to 2 defeats and a draw in 90mins with a lower league side. So if by plan B we mean systems t...

Re: Song For Puşcaş

The simple but effective repeated chanting of
Pus-cas
Pus-cas
Worked well at Wycombe
It was kind of Eastern European on feel and seemed to reflect the qualities of the man himself
Sometimes less is more.

Good luck with a song for Eljaria....

Re: Will we get found out again?

Odd to worry about us not having a Plan B when we've already used at least 3 formations and used different players to do different roles. We've got the players to be flexible and while undoubtably we'll have a preferred way of playing I can't see us being stuck on one system. Even down to the small ...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

I thought Puscas showed many similarities to Shane Long today. I hope not. Good player for many reasons I suppose but he was hardly prolific. He reminds me of Forster. The guy took the ball from OUR HALF got his head down and just ran towards goal like a goal hungry maniac and scored. It was bloody...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

:lol: @ the usual moaners, sharpening their knives on pages 4 & 5 of the match thread. We're very inconsistent, but it was pleasing to see some ability and desire on show for 90 minutes today. Tbf that's the first time that teams played together. Harsh to call them inconsistent. TBF 9 of the te...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

You said ‘apparantly’, so perhaps there weren’t any. Or perhaps the players didn’t fancy dropping to Div 2 Or perhaps the offer was to let the player move but we’d still had to pay their wages Or perhaps they were pay as they play deals where the loaning club would pay the wages if they played but ...

Rumour Popa is in talks over a permanent switch to FCSB I’m Romania On loan - if Twitter is to believed he's on €60k per week - of which they are covering €20k?? At least we got some sort of return for Pog, re games played etc... Can't blame Gorley either as he's been here 3 years already If he was...

All noted Wimb. So why did we not offload them when loan bids (apparently) came in for them at the end of the transfer window? You said ‘apparantly’, so perhaps there weren’t any.

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

Can anyone explain the benefits of isolating a senior and longstanding player who has a reputation as being one of the good guys in the game? I absolutely get the club want to move GMac and Gunts on. Fair enough. Both though have very good reps as professional footballers and their experience could...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

Quite a lot of us care about it. Under Coppell the club not only succeeded, but did so in admirable and ethical ways. You might want to take a look at how judgemental and intolerant you are as a possible cause for why you're so miserable and unstable. This is absolute nonsense ! There was stuff und...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

So interesting takes from that - Loader and Olise probably not involved on Sunday - no Barrett - no Novacovic , so is he going to be involved on Sunday ? Either of the above 2 could be replacements or cover if Boye is outstanding - McLeary and Gunter not involved. To be honest I could understand no...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

'The Reading way.' Who cares about the 'Reading' way? Where has that got us the last few seasons? This is the results business and if players aren't performing and doing their job properly, they need to go. Quite a lot of us care about it. Under Coppell the club not only succeeded, but did so in ad...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Also, clearly, you can only sell your ground once. Unless you buy it back. Sell to owner for £100m Spend £100m on players Buy back from owner for £1 and repeat The value of the club would, in theory increase significantly if the £100m was invested wisely so the owner's shares would increase in valu...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Do the owners own 100% of the club? Didn't STAR have a few shares? Some of this asset transferring / charging rent etc is perhaps just a way to ensure the owner receives a return on his indirect cash loan/investment. It can't be paid out as a dividend as other shareholders e.g. STAR would legally b...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

It was after he got sent off for stepping in and defending Danny Williams at Barnsley. He was stoodin the car park and in his own words he said Stam had told him he better not be around after the game. To be honest it was more a question of it being a very minor ‘non event’ and possibly the worst of...
