Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Disgusting.......Theres too many welsh people at this club.....Bout time the banners were out. "Dydyn ni ddim eisiau Cymry yn y Clwb yma. Ewch yn ôl i rygbi." (They may have to extend club 1971 to get all that in...) That's what they should say. We are gonna groundshare with Cardiff at th...

Re: Congratulations, you are the new Reading manager

I'd invite Maffff, LordCKS, RoyalBlue, Strap and anyone else currently having a tantrum at Gomes sacking and Bowen's appointment to training. Then I'd kill them. Burn them. And Bury the ashes under one of the training pitches. And we'd all be happier people. Wee bit harsh that - I'd just make them ...

Re: Next Manager

just like to say I came back from an evening out to see Steve Clarke trending, and nearly had heart failure.

I hope they pick a manager quickly, I dont' think I can handle too much of this.

Agree that they (the players) have been very compliant with their paymasters wishes. Expect the platitudes will come out over the next few days now that the deed has been done.

Re: Next Manager

Hughes would be a very sensible option and will do very well here, I’m sure if it. I personally would have him over Hughton. I just can’t understand people horror that it will be Hughes. He’s a decent manager. Plenty of experience and hopefully will give the players a kick up the back side they nee...

Will be even funnier if the next guy in says "right, all players to get their chance to impress, and brings McCleary, Baldock and Gunter back into 1st team training" Vat of popcorn at the ready. Yep, that would be a lot of players vying for 11 places. Hope the new bloke likes our new sign...

Re: Gomes, Should he stay or should he go? Mk2

For all his much lauded great man management, Gomes has managed to treat Baldock, Gunter, McCleary, Mannone and Kelly quite badly. He's openly criticised Kelly, Loader, Puscas and Joao in the press as well from what I remember. Plus dropping Richards, Rinomhota and Meite (multiple times) for no goo...

Re: Anton took money!!

What about the other two seasons he got paid a mint for doing nothing, whilst pursuing a media career? Played half the PL season too. Not terribly successfully, but he wasn't alone in that. So he did some media work while he was out injured - so what? I guess you think Obita has been stealing a liv...

Re: Anton took money!!

No Southampton away, West Ham away, no McCleary, no Roberts, no Clarke cup run, no return of Sigurdsson (playing for Spurs), no Carrico. No opportunity to see world class players like Aguero, Cazorla, or Bale at the Mad Stad. Losing Kebe and Federici to replace them with Antonio and McCarthy is an ...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

URZZZZ Courtney Friday “Gomes is on the verge of being dismissed”

15 minutes later “FWIW, don’t think he’ll be sacked”

Huh?


???
Maybe he thinks he'll step down rather than be sacked?

Or maybe he's frantically backtracking, and the meeting is to give Gomes x number of games to sort stuff out

So we're 10 games in. P10, W2, D2, L6, F11, A16, with a recent form of: LLLDL This time last season: P10, W2, D3, L5, with a recent form of: LWLWD Ten games is enough time to really start judging performance, and it's inexcusably shit.

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

its a bit of a bugbear of mine that. Show more passion etc. I cant claim to know any footballers, but I very much doubt they lose games due to lack of effort. Maybe very occasionally and odd individuals more than others. The one who I genuinely thought wasn't trying in recent times was Chris Martin...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Yep agree. And it’s a good point about Stam season 1. Everyone had a very clear and defined role . You could shut your eyes and tell someone pretty much where every player would be on the pitch. My memories of games that season are just a blur because every game was basically the same at home When ...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Fulham's passing was crisp and neat, their movement off the ball excellent, and their niggly fouling and play acting unsurpassed. Reading were slow, inaccurate, sloppy, weak, disorganised, lethargic, incompetent and naive. I would include Puscas along with Rafael, Meite and Rihnamota (and maybe Yia...

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

Meite was very good at the back end of last season and literally won us games on his own so he has a lot of credit in the bank with me. It was his combination with Barrow that worked well, shame he's now gone Don't get the Barrow love, when he was here people would get incredibly frustrated with hi...

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

I feel that tieing players to 4 or 5 years deals like Meite and Swift has very few benefits. The players motivation, hunger and standards will decrease as they know they are guaranteed to be on a big contract for years to come. The efforts of the players have been questioned for the past few season...

Wonder if it’s coincidence both times Gunter has played we’ve conceded a hatful


He also played in the game against Newcastle that we won 6-0, so, possibly not.
