Re: How Are You Feeling?

It feels like we deserve to get relegated (hard to believe there's worse teams than us) so pretty happy going into the last game. The bookies have us at 40-1 to go down so while it feels far more real to fans that gives a lot of comfort. But if we do go down, we deserve it.

Re: New

Leyton Orient have had a shocking and depressing time in recent years and at your lowest ebb you thought you'd come to see Reading? well welcome to a new world of pain and misery.

Re: Why we are sh*t

What I think we need more than anything is a controlling midfield player. Doesn't need to be quick, dynamic or even young but someone who is an obvious go to player, comfortable on the ball and indeed will demand the ball and stop going bl00dy backwards all the time, someone like Caskey springs to m...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (a) sponsored by a deep dark realisation that this way creeps

I'm being "treated" to their hospitality package this afternoon, dreading a thumping surrounded by dirty Leeds fans. 0-0 is the best I can realistically hope for.

Re: Gunter

What counts against him is that we remember him getting down the wing a lot, getting forward and getting crosses in. Since Stam, he rarely goes forward and simply plays it straight back. So its not so much that he's playing badly but boring and negative, far from what he used to be.

Re: Norwich City Saturday Crowd and Score Predictions

Think you're underestimating how many Norwich will bring so going for 17,249 overall as the official figure, which will include all the season ticket holders who stay away.

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

Can't recall the fans ever being so divided. First time ever I just cant be bothered to go to games. I don't mind losing, but even last season when we were winning, it was a chore going and I had no enthusiasm for it. f*ck off before you spoil the best manager and some of the best football we've pla...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

I think Reading fans are some of the most patient and forgiving fans going, if you cant accept a handful of fans not loving every decision then you don't belong as a manager. Last year we finished 3rd and then invest far and away the largest amount of money we ever have done then why is winning the ...

Re: BFTG Hull

Awful game, clueless performance and now Stam is having a go at the fans for booing a negative substitution. He's deluded and starting to look out of his depth.

Re: The Stam passing game

Its dreary stuff and doesn't get the crowd going making home games doubly worse to watch as evidenced by the awful crowds last season despite the success . We retain possession where and when the opposition wants us to without posing danger, when we should keep it like the latter stages of games we ...

Re: McDermott Sacked (AGAIN)

As the season ended I said to myself that I wouldn't renew my season ticket if Brian was still in charge, firstly as there would little to look forward to next season but more importantly would be the complete lack of ambition it would show of the owners. If they were to keep Brian it demonstrates t...

Re: BFTG Leeds

Overall it was a decent performance, either Leeds had a bad day or we made them look bad. The obvious problem was that they scored with their only meaningful chances and we didn't. Agree that McCleary improvised at full back well but was disappointed in Cox with Piazon ineffective as usual. Ola John...

Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

...that's what he or any manager will need to reestablish the Reading way. Thats what I find most odd, when he took over from Coppell he kept re-iterating the 'Reading way' which was wingers, width and crosses. Never heard him say anything like that since he's been back like he's suddenly forgotten...

After listening to that interview, McDermott is a dead man walking.
