Re: Coppell to sign contract next

bummer, I was undecided, so picked no and now it's 51% against

If I'd said yes it would be 51% for and I could feel happy

Re: Shane Long

didnt he just said before i just wanted to play, if it wasnt here i needed time on loan, now he has realised it is better to stay and fight for a place i see nothing in this that admits poor attitude, just that his desperation to play took precedence before That is plain DAFT. SSC brought him back ...

:lol: Or, Lita knows that the worst thing for him and Reading is that he stagnates on the bench, and asked, rather than demanded, that he go out on loan.

Re: Shane Long

Forgetting overall form, is anyone surprised that SSC is talking of starting Lita tomorrow? If he dropped Lita again for Noel, Noel would think, "I'm automatic choice when not injured" just like Doyle thinks it's Doyle plus one other. Lita is bound to be fired up. If he does well, gets goa...

Re: Shane Long

cmonurz Woodcote is becoming very aggressive on this thread. Why is the belief that Lita is a better option than Long 'pathetic hero worship?'


Because he's not interested in signing for us and has scored two goals in two seasons?

He's hero worshipped because of what he did fours seasons/3 ago

Wolves, the Next Three Games

Tomorrow they are away to Coventry, a derby game, certainly not easy

Then away to Burnley

Then home to Cardiff


Maybe they will win at Coventry but it's one they could lose
and Burnley & Cardiff will be very tough


Predictions? Three draws?

Re: Shane Long

FFS. Is there a more misleading stat than 'starts and goals'? 3 starts, 3 goals makes Shane Long look like a superstar. Stop using it, it means absolutely nothing . Woodcote said that to be considered above Long, Lita needs 5 goals. He has 8 this season, having convinced a team to play him from the...

Re: Shane Long

Kitson and Doyle both contribute more than just scoring goals but you are having a laugh if you think this applies to Lita. When on form, Leroy scores goals, that's it. Agreed. Just look at the official numbers of assists attributed to Lita 7 in 4 years In the last two seasons 2 goals and 1 assists...

Re: Shane Long

All Leroy has to do to be genuinley ahead of Long is score about 5 goals a season. Done. He has 8 this season. Not for Reading. I personally don't give a damn what players do out on loan. You need to ask why doesn't he do it for READING? Maybe he tried a bit harder at Norwich, looking for the move....

Re: Shane Long

Whereas you see it in Long all the time. When refs decisions aren't going his way, his head goes down, he sulks. He mimes throwing the ball in an opposition player's face (at least once). He goes into challenges rashly. Agreed, look at all those RED CARDS and YELLOW CARDS he gets. For example, this...

Re: Shane Long

So you and the handful of other idiots that think Long somehow deserves more of a chance, over and above the hundreds of sub appearances he has managed to muster in his career here , know more than Coppell and the vast majority of RFC fans. The above is a perfect example of the moronic input from t...

Re: Shane Long

Except Long hasn't really showed many indicators he can do any better, whereas Lita HAS done considerably better, and could quite easily return to that form, without the need for a run of 20 games to learn how to make decisions and control the ball. Lita Season 1 11 goals, Season 2 7 goals, Season ...

Re: Shane Long

in .5/1/1/.5 seasons (3 in total) Shane has scored 11 league goals playing almost exclusively as a sub in 1/1/1.5 seasons (but he was away a bit) Lita, with may, many starts (he had more in his first season than Long has had altogether in his RFC career) Lita has scored 20 Why can't people see past...
