Re: Rival Watch

I am waiting for the first pro-footballer (or his club) to admit a player can't play due to Long Covid. 15% of people surviving Covid are developing Long-Covid. There must be some players seriously under par. Can anyone think of any "missing" names? I do wonder about Hudson-Odoi at Chelse...

Re: Season 20/21

No access to toilets makes it impossible for me to attend anyway, so if that’s true then my other complaints are moot. Where have you read that? This seems to suggest that there will be additional facilities: Try to maintain social distancing when using the toilets as far as possible. You must foll...

Re: Reading on WhoScored

THe inconsistencies are musing but it just reinforces my belief that this sort of tuff is pretty pointl so for football. Sure, but Derby strolled around first half with barely a challenge, and second half, though they pressed, they were hardly aggressive This is why it helps to understand what the ...

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

So Holsgrove has gone permanently to Spain as per the OS. Seems odd to me that we never gave him a chance here. Have we received a lot of money for him? Doubtful I would have thought. Or do we simply think he is not good enough. We have had a lot of Academy lads break through but increasingly there...

Re: The generic transfer thread

I think as well for me with Liverpool its as much to do with the fact they play more on emotion than their more technical rivals.

With crowds unlikely to return to their usual levels soon , I think they'll suffer more from Covid conditions football than yer Citys, Utds and Chelsea.

Re: 20/21 season predictions

Wouldn’t be surprised to see Sheffield United suffering from second season syndrome, remind me a little bit of our team in 2006/07 Can see WBA and Fulham struggling too, but can see Leeds pushing for a top half finish. Fancy Arsenal and Tottenham to both have good seasons under two good managers an...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

That's an assertion you really can't back up Vision. Gomes had us in the relegation zone iirc and Clement wasn't far off. With a change of the nature made having virtually no chance of obtaining the promotion. Lol. Well since you issued the challenge I'll give it a go ;-) The point isn't that the p...

Agree. Give the guy a chance, or go support another team.

Re: The generic transfer thread

Henry is the best I've seen live. He is the only player I've seen rip Reading to utter shreds. Have you only ever been to the Mad Stad to watch Reading play Arsenal? Victor Moses and Marlon King are just two names that spring to mind!! Jamie Cureton and Jason Roberts in the same game. Similiarly re...

Re: Veljko Paunović - Whelmgauge

Seem to be making a big deal of winning the World Cup with Serbia U20's. Paul Simpson who managed England when they won the trophy is currently Head Coach at Bristol City. No logical step that coaches make great managers. Clement being another example . Simpson is the "Number 2" isn't he?...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

Don’t mention that name! What on earth are we going to do with him?! Literally nothing. Nobody will buy him. Any club that would even want him won't pay half what we are paying. A loan might be possible. Honestly, and I dont like saying this, we might have to just play him.. put him on the bench an...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

That's a rare disagree with Vision here. Don't think there's any credible argument Stam got sacked for not looking like delivering promotion. He went in late March with 8 games to go and in 20th position with no wins in 9 games. If it was about not looking like he could get promotion he'd have gone...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

There is utility there Aruruna can cover dcm and Osho covers CB how to make a smaller club is to have more players who can cover more positions. He's supposed to be able to cover defensive midfield. I've seen nothing to suggest he's even remotely up to it though, and you've got to ask about Bowen's...

Re: Bowen's Tenure

I've posted way back ( when Gourlay was getting all the shit) on why I think the owners are mainly to blame for the malaise at the club. I don't doubt their long term commitment ( the brand new training complex suggests they're in it for the long term) but the simple truth is they came on board Janu...

Enjoyed that and glad I paid my £10, though it was touch and go whether I did or not. Plenty t be positive about, while Luton looked poor. As said before pleased for MacIntyre and Osho. Osho looked like he was unfamiliar as a right back, but grew into the game. Lots of potential. Interesting that B...

Love that in the post match interview Bowen is talking about how Meite's asking to be No 9 and Bowen tells him he'll get just as many chances coming in off the right... he then scores 4 goals. Bowen, "I think I've won that one for a while." :lol: I think the significant thing was how much...

Ever since Ejaria arrived on loan there have been no big doubts about his talent but there are doubts about wtf he actually is. Is he a winger? A box to box midfielder? An attacking midfielder? Nobody can work it out. Suspect one day something will click either for him or for a manager and then he’...
