Re: BFTG - Sheffield

It just goes to show how luck we were being able to bring in Martinez in last season. And how much of a battle we have that we only just avoiding relegation with him performing at such a high level.

If we want to stay in the league we need a minimum of a left-back and striker.

Re: BFTG - Sheffield

Loader was poor. Hard to judge the keeper, most players would have conceded those three. Good effort from Meite, Miazga, Swift, Adam. At one point Adam was the only one properly chasing back to deal with counters. Referee was an embarrassment. If a two handed shove to Miazga's head isn't a penalty,...

Re: Free away travel

Seen a couple of idiots whinging on Social Media that this offer is unfair as it discriminates against fans who choose to make their own way to the game. One would hope they are taking the piss, but we are know they won't be. Although . . . . . never going to happen, but if the club could negotiate...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Article with Obita suggest that his return is a 'long way off'.

https://www.readingfc.co.uk/news/2019/a ... -recovery/

Obita says that it will be a 'few weeks' before he can return to training even.

Re: Free away travel

I guess that for a lot of people, the coach is only worthwhile if you're only going for the football. You miss out on the rest of the away-day experience. Sometimes that's fine - sometimes it's not.

Re: Free away travel

Great move by the owners. Personally, I would have been tempted to leave out clubs that charge more than £30 for a ticket. By offering free travel we are in effect increasing ticket sales for them. That's not a moan, just a suggestion. Reasonable point - but the main thing is to get support for our...

Re: Are we screwed?

Having a decent goalie that players trust is so important. It gives the defence a bit more confidence - which means more attacking play in general. Getting one of Martinez' quality was a bit of a fluke though, it's unlikely that anyone we could get in would start performing instantly like him. I'm s...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Sutekh Like the home kit.

The away kit is passable.

Wonder if the Megastore has it on display.

Crazy to not be able to buy until 3rd August though.


You mean *Fanstore* :D :lol:

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

He's exactly the sort of midfield goal threat that we've been missing in recent years. But I'm not a fan of these older, expensive-wage signings.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Interesting that we try and save money by getting the kit later than everyone else.

Then spend money on publicity stunts like sending the kit into space*.

*Which resulted in one of my favourite comments of all time - "They're seeing how it works in a place with no atmosphere." :D

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I can't understand a lot of the positivity around the current squad. Are people forgetting how much we struggled without the 5 loanees in Jan? This is the same side (maybe slightly younger and more inexperienced) that really, really struggled at champ level. I remain positive that we'll get a few m...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

I would have given McNulty a shot rather than Baldock At least McNulty has been scoring goals recently,Baldock just seems to run around a lot not really doing that much Not sure. McNulty only seems able to score at a level/team where he's getting lots of chances. Baldock is a proven Championship go...
