Re: MATCHWATCH : Stevenage (a) sponsored by an FA Cup run needed to save the season

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by 5 games without a win

Stam's post match interview. He's as delusional as Gourlay. What a dilemma, not sure if the rest of the Championship fans would regard us as the laughing stock or as exceedingly faithful.

Re: I have been educated!

This season has been a re-education in football. I have learned about football all over again. Admittedly at the start of the season, I was as frustrated and bored as much as anyone else watching our team retain possession and roll the ball around the back. But at Wembley, I felt that my education ...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

218 was very poor, the poorest I have seen at any match of that standard. A 19/20 year old looked bored from the start and I didn't notice him even breaking into a clap throughout. Two old gents in front, remember not too old to walk to the 2nd tier, didn't even stand for the minute clapping on 22 m...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

Shocking atmosphere all round. Not sure why. Mainly because we didn't attack at all or ever look like scoring. We looked like we were in damage limitation mode from the off. Shame. Nothing to get behind. Don't know precisely what you went for, but Reading were on the pitch, they did attack, they wo...

Re: BFTG - Wembley

The possession was there and we contained their skillful best, but playing the best really stretches our forward line too far. Very disappointed that after the superb effort for the Fulham games, the fans didn't put their shift in either. Teenager next to me didn't clap once, let alone sing, 2 old b...

Re: Jaap Stam to Leicester?

No chance. They need a quick fix, I dont think Stam introducing his style of play at this stage of there season would bring any kind of results. Imagine trying to get Huth & Morgan to pass it out from the back. What he said. Leicester are after a Fat Sam style quick fix. As good as Stam is I th...

Re: BFTS - Brighton (A)

I have to be honest-I was ashamed of that performance. Some of the team need to take a long hard look at themselves. I think this is the first time I have seen them on TV this season; so maybe my player ratings are a bit skewed-however, I believe these are the lowest ratings I have ever given. Al H...

Re: BFTS - Brighton (A)

The stats don't lie, we played far better than most of the ratings quoted in this thread suggest. We even had a greater passing accuracy than Brighton, just that they produced much better breaks from our mistakes, perhaps a little too much focus on regaining possession at those opportunities. Didn't...

Re: Is this the end for Madejski?

I am totally behind Sir John. It seems that there is a 50/50 split amongst the fans between those that are happy for the heart of RFC to be ripped out and to accept the hire and fire mentality that so many other clubs have - but the rest of us loved the "Reading way" and were proud that t...

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

Maybe that's why it's all gone quiet after scheduled talks with the owners and Brian not mentioned by name in the plans for pre-season. Maybe there's a stealth move under foot, a replacement named as part of the 'pursuing a new venture' statement. Absolutely no substance, just conjecture. Felt a bi...

Re: CONFIMRED - Danzell Gravenberch

Strong looking chap. Our team has looked generally lightweight for a while. Who knows how good he is, but if good enough for Brian he's good enough for me. I'm pleased with this. So it would appear that Brian could not have signed him, so who did! You'd like to think that either they have the 'appr...

Re: Message from the Thai's

I hope the Thais have been smart and I'm not wrong with this, by January we had a faltering squad of big egos that had cost the owners a lot of money on loan, there was no point investing as the season was pretty much over by January and the team spirit was shattered, they offloaded what they could...

The Thai ownership is not the consistent theme in the last 3 absolutely crap years, give them a break, it's the end of their first year. If i were them i'd be questioning the club management. A top to bottom review required, perhaps Nicky had already been shown the cards.. Desperate times call for d...
