Re: Are we screwed?

We're in the same dangerous territory we've been in for years. But a lot of the repairs have started. A tight, well motivated, drilled and dedicated squad can take you a long way in the Championship and there's plenty of promise in our Academy. With the work we're doing, even if the worst happens a...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Rino, Swift and Loader would be one of the worst midfield trio we've ever seen. Imagine the likes of Warnock, Pulis and co against those three, they'd have a field day Add to that Blackett and Moore aren't exactly tall, neither Obita and Yiadom. Our two tallest players would be our striker and RW. ...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

So its looking a bit grim on the transfer front thanks to FFP, but its not all doom and gloom just yet! we still have a competitive squad which would still just about hang on to safety i guess. So if we where to put a squad out today with the players currently on our books i would go for: Southwood...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Agreed Ian. It’s very early to be selling/signing players. I am though concerned there will be little interest in the likes of Popa, Meyler, Walker, Kelly, Watson etc let alone the likes of Gunter, Baldock and GMac who are still involved in the squad. We know Hibs want McNulty. It would be nice to ...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

Loader is clearly work in progress, but this guy has scored goals at every level he's played in so far, including on the International scene. I mentioned in a previous post, regarding the goal he scored against Boro, his positioning and movement to get himself away from the defender and have the con...

Re: Rumour - Danny Loader

We really need to be keeping hold of our youngsters and trying to build the club around our shining academy players. Loader is clearly going to be a star, he's still young and raw at the moment but we've all seen that there's a talented kid in there. He has great movement and the way he took that g...

Re: Rumour Meite back to France?

I liked the thought of Olivera when he first came here and his commitment to the cause was commendable, but there just seems something not quite right....no doubt he has the quality but i fear a dressing room bust up is waiting to happen. So i'm for the keep Meite group and give Novakovich and Loade...

Re: The League of 4

Agreed, Rotherham look like a great little club with plenty of fight and spirit which sometimes gets you places and sometimes doesn't. Ultimately class will show through, and the 5 loanees shipped in by us has given us that edge and spirit to pull clear at the end. Good luck to Rotherham next season...

Re: Next Season.

Baker and Miazga are a must to be signed, i know this is a big ask but they looked like they enjoyed every minute of their time here and are loved by the fans and fellow staff and players and this will give us the edge in being able to sign them i think. Miazga's partnership with Moore has been cruc...

Re: Rival Watch

The way this run in is panning out so far, we will get beat by WBA and Rotherham will beat Birmingham!! Thus causing fellow Nobbers to go into meltdown mode and await the oncoming Apocalypse!!!!
Only for us to go and win at Boro the following week!!! :D

Re: BFTG - Brentford

There is no way in hell we will get all five loanee"s back, but if we can get the reported 7 mill for Swift then that would allow us to maybe get two in and maybe another back on loan for another year. If this is the case then Baker would be my number one choice, he has really grown into this t...

Re: The League of 4

Agreed, Saturday is now a massive game and if we win and results go our way we could be in touching distance of safety. However, this is Reading lol.
Would be nice to see 20,000 on Saturday, what with the importance of the game and being a derby game to-boot.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (a) sponsored by James Harper

5-3-2 worked great tonight, and against lesser teams the two up top gives us a better attacking threat and really shores up the defense. Defiantly the way to go for the final two away games.
Thought Reading were immense tonight, great spirit and character to come back after those late goals :D

With six games to go and with so much at stake, i can guarantee you the form guide will go out the window!!! These last six rounds of fixtures will be a lottery especially as it goes down to the wire. Yes, there will be games that go to form, but no one will want to be playing the teams at the botto...

Re: Swift to Leeds

If selling Swift allows us to fund the purchase of some of our loanee's then i have no problem with this. Swift on his day is a great player but his consistency and work rate is nowhere near good enough for an aspiring championship club, let alone a struggling one. And i'm guessing that he would be ...

Re: BFTG - PNE

That was a very good first half performance and a steady second half. This team as it is now with some self belief and confidence would be a very dangerous side next season. It needs a little tweaking here and there but with a full preseason under Jose and maybe if we could keep the four outfield lo...
