Re: Opposition fans back from the game

We were the better team over 46 games and then the better team over two legs.

You can analyse every last detail but the fact remains that if you have the kind of pressure they did in the last half hour last night and can't score, then you don't deserve to win.

Re: Jem Karacan

It was a really good goal and from what I saw of him he looked almost back to his normal self. At one point he chased the ball (and a defender) about thirty yards back into the opposition half, to massive cheers and encouragement from the fans. He also crunched into some tackles, played some decent ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I think they should try to replicate the mid-90s Pelada kits if possible - 11/12 did a pretty good job of this.

Perhaps a special edition blue and yellow hooped charity shirt as well, wear it for cup games or something like that?

Re: Back from the game - Leeds (H)

I really hate Leeds, I'm so glad we beat them. Can't be arsed with the player ratings as they've all been done, but if we can combine that offensive menace and defensive composure, along with the desire to win shown throughout and at the end, we'll be in a decent position come the end of the season....

QPR's Dryworld home kit is basically a Reading kit from the 70s. I wouldn't mind that

Re: Always going to be Puma?

Big clubs get the big contracts with the likes of adidas and Nike. Smaller clubs can just buy a set of kits out of a catalogue, essentially, which is why you see the likes of Brentford in adidas and PNE in Nike. Puma have cornered a large part of the Football League market, providing the same kit te...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

If every single player is invested in the playing style, it will more often than not look good and be effective. If you play the ball on the floor and build from the back and roll over a team 4-0, everyone thinks it looks great. The same if you win 4-0 playing kick and run, or a combination of both....

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

I wouldn't be angry, but definitely disappointed. We've been up there all year so to drop out near the end would be annoying, but in terms of the bigger picture I think we've had a pretty successful first season under Stam regardless of where we finish (as long as it's top half). As others have said...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I guess if McShane does turn out to be a little more serious, we could see Dickie on the bench, presuming Ilori is still out.

We've got to work with what we've got, I guess.

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

Anyone know how serious McShane's injury looked Could be fun at Sheffield with both McShane and Moore missing. Could have Berg and Reece as the centre backs and Blackett in at left back :lol: I couldn't really tell but he was not moving very well when he went off. There didn't seem to be a particul...

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

I went on Saturday. For the first 30 minutes we looked really good going forward, creating a lot and testing their keeper a couple of times. They had a couple of forays forward and I thought we handled it well enough, then Blackett got caught in two minds on a ball over the top, didn't deal with it ...

Re: Team & Predictions for Fulham

Blackett will be a straight swap for Obita, and I think Evans should come in to the midfield three for one of the others, for a little balance. Perhaps Swift as he is still coming back from an injury and hasn't quite hit the heights of before his time out. I have a horrible feeling JvdB will come in...

Re: My second team -Reading

I was a Reading fan from the start but I did follow Shaka to Newcastle when he left as he was my absolute hero and I was only five at the time. Newcastle were also superb in that era, too, which helped. I didn't follow Shaka any further after that, thank God, and my interest waned as I got a little ...
