Re: Sweet Caroline

As with goal music and all the other things the club does there is a lot of hot air form grumpy gifts on here, but the evidence in the stadium is that the majority go along with it and seem to get a kick out of it. If you don't like it don't play along. I hold my hands up to being a grumpy git, but...

Re: Steve Clake - New Poll

Clarke gets good reviews from lots of people in football, was speaking to an Oxford United coach recently who said Clarke is a really good appointment.... We shall see. I'm very much in the camp that says he's had no real time to do much yet. Of course you sometimes get managers who come in and mak...

Really feels like the club is trying a bit too hard and it gets a bit cringeworthy. See Queensly for more evidence of same.

Re: 2012-2015: worst signings

I propose a compromise: Drenthe - biggest waster signing Ferdinand - stupidest signing Pogrebnyak - most overpaid signing It's to the credit of the club management that we've managed to field a strong candidate in each category. Sunderland can take us in the Biggest Kiddie Fiddler section, otherwis...

Re: Did anyone stay for the lap of appreciation?

JakeTheRoyal Jem waved when he got round to Y26ish don't know if it meant anything but he seemed pretty seperate from the rest. :o

Nailed on he'd farted. He's a classy bloke so wouldn't have wanted anyone to get a lungful. If he leaves now, it's purely out of embarrassment.

Re: Did anyone stay for the lap of appreciation?

After watching 90 minutes of unmitigated poo, and feeling a distinct lack of appreciation for the team's efforts this season, no I didn't. However, I did though feel for Federici....receiving his PotS award in what, judging by the publicity pictures, looked like a virtually empty stadium. He was one...

Re: What is the point in HRK

I feel like a dog returning to its own vomit by repeatedly banging on about this topic, but whilst the excuses and denials keep rolling in, I feel compelled to prevent the apologists from getting a free ride. Agreed. HRK strikes me very much as one of those players who needs encouragement rather tha...

Re: HRK KEEPS PLAYING-WHY?

Is the point of HRK to be the litmus test for Steve Clarke's tenure. If he can't see that he's rubbish, then he may not be a real manager.

So what? Even if that's true (which is so obviously isn't) trying hard is not why footballers are employed and paid huge sums of money. He has to deliver on match days and contribute something, anything. Jamie Mackie and Jem Karacan have made a career out of doing this . Sorry, I'm not sure I under...

ITV news has linked Reading to ex-Man United winger Bebe.

Floyd, reopen the poll, I think we have a late entry for worst signing since 2011.

Akpan and Blackman would be the first ones I would try to shift out of the door, accepting that no othe...

Re: Reasons I'm worried about next season.

Nothing Reading FC, nor anything football "worries" me. Poor use of the word " worried " tbh. noun worry - the state of being anxious and troubled over actual or potential problems Unless you're think of sheep worrying, seems fairly appropriate to me. Were you thinking about she...

Floyd, this is a tough one. When Blackman and Akpan are only poor enough for the 'Other' bench, you know the competition is stiff.

Re: Well done on cup run but fans deserve better

Clarke could do with focusing on our ability to centre. It's diabolical. Only Norwood has better than 30% accuracy for crosses out of him, Obita, McCleary, Gunter, Robson-Kanu, Mackie, Taylor, Kelly and Blackman. Half of the others are less than 20%! Less than 50% accuracy from corners. It really m...

Re: BFTG - Brum

Cooper is very tall. That's about it. I think that's unfair, and simply not backed up by what we've seen to date. We could point to mistakes in games this season, for sure, but he's young and shows a huge amount of promise. His passing is at times excellent (he showed that last night), and his defe...
