Re: BFTG - Watford (H)

Any other day we would have won the game! Sometimes you have to hold your hands up and say we couldn't have performed all that better, the back four halted what is one of the best teams in the league to little chances, feds made one save in the first half and the goal in the second. Overall I'm sure...

Re: CONFIMRED - Glenn Murray on loan

Considering his reputation as a goal scorer his finishing is pretty poor. Yes he offers a lot more off the ball but on Saturday he had two great chances and didn't even hit the target!

Re: Can Clarkie improve the squad?

Today for the first time in a while I'm really looking forward to going to football today. I was never an Adkins fan from the beginning and can count on one hand the amount of times I came home from a game having seen a great performance, the only one that springs to mind is Fulham this year and tha...

Re: Adkins -what next?

You are talking purely in terms of points away from the bottom 3 though RR. What about the trajectory of: 1) Defending / conceding goals 2) Fan displeasure 3) Effort from players 4) General performance 5) Attendances at home & away games ALL OF THESE ARE ON THE SLIDE. Please do not try to sugge...

Re: Adkins -what next?

We have been bad at home but even worse away. Adkins should have gone after Bournemouth away, you could see then that the team just gave up, didn't want to fight and looked like conceding every time they had the ball. Same again yesterday! Lots of calls then to give him a chance and big players will...

Re: Who is your least favourite current Reading player?

Find all this 'I've fallen out of love with the club' so tiresome. If it was in response to unrelenting success (i.e. it gets boring seeing us win everything so easily), it would at least be interesting - but this sudden 'falling out of love' when things are going downhill after years and years of ...

Re: Injury table and expected return....

What's happened to Shaun Cummings? He is better defensively than Gunter

Re: Who do you want?

Steve Clarke did a great job at West Brom, he has a lot of contacts in football and utilised the loan market well. This is what we need to do to strengthen, rather than paying over inflated January prices

Re: Adkins - Pros and Cons

If you look through our most successful period at the club, we've played a similar style which started under Pardew. We've played with real width. Wingers that could beat the full back and get a ball in to a good finisher, alongside 2 good full backs who were primarily defenders who could overlap an...

Re: Adkins - Pros and Cons

It was obvious last night that the players just didn't want to fight for the shirt, didn't want the ball & were playing out the game rather than trying to get back into it. We used to be a team that would play with pace and width, at times direct but always looked like we could get something fro...

Re: BFTG Bournemouth

First half we were the better team, without really creating much in the way of chances apart from HRK hitting the post. Bournemouth looked sloppy for the first 30 mins, lots of loose passes. Then came into the game a lot more just before HT. Second half, it was men against boys. We were woeful and l...
