Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

Martinez and Miazga are too good for us. Baker is a must as is Oliveira, I strongly disagree with the census on Ejaria though- he’s really grown into the team of late and I really do like how he seems to be willing to do defending unlike Swifty. I don’t see any aside from Oliveira coming permanently...

Re: End of season contracts

Don’t think Gomes rates Harriott so I see him leaving, glad we gave him the chance to regain his squad role but just isn’t the same anymore. Can see Bodvarsson, Kelly, Baldilocks all being forced out though. McShane is worth keeping around imo, but if he does leave we need a defender in his prime to...

Re: Swift to Leeds

Open to selling anybody for the right offer, I trust the club to make a good decision this time round and for Howe and Gomes to actually spend it properly. Thank the Lord Gourlay took the hint and buggered off before January.

Re: Rumour - Pedro Neves

Seems very highly rated, which asks the question of why Everton never gave him a professional deal. Either way, worth a punt. Does terribly we won’t lose any sleep, does well we have a good player in our hands to sell or use.

Re: Have Reading ever had a player like a "Pogba B"

In terms of how influential I’d argue John Swift, when he has a good game he’s unstoppable at this level. Just wish he wasn’t so frustratingly inconsistent, because he’s a hell of a player.

Still can’t believe people thought we didn’t need him, he’s heads and shoulders above this team.

Re: BFTG Wednesday (A)

definitely not too late If we are correct in thinking Ipswich and Bolton are likely down (obvs a big assumption but nothing to suggest otherwise), then its a straight shoot out between us and Rotherham, No real excuse to lose that one looking at the comparative squads etc Lets hope not, I can see s...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (A)

Can only be a matter of time until we turn those draws into wins. Ipswich look down and out, Bolton very close to joining them then there’s us and Rotherham, with Millwall and Wigan losing their ground on us as we speak. Think it might be too little too late now though, not showing any signs of imp...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (h) sponsored by not long to desperation

What gets me is that the form is basically the same under both managers Clement 20 games, 4 wins and 6 draws 18 pts/20 games (0.90 ppg) Gomes 7 games 1 win and 3 draws 6 pts / 7 games (0.86 ppg) Smaller numbers with Gomes, sure, but nothing saying we're any better or more robust. Marginally harder ...

Re: The Local Journo Thread

Anthony is a questionable journo but in this case I’ll come to his defence. If I thought I saw something like that and have no idea who it is, and if it’s no one after he reports this then he gets taken the piss out of. He decides it’s not really enough to say anything and as Miazga is a relatively ...

Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

Looking at the fixture list and it seems pretty clear to me that the next 8 games will define if we are likely to stay up or go down. Starting with the Bolton game on the 29th our fixtures are as follows: Bolton (a) 22nd place Villa (H) 12th Weds (a) 16th Blackburn (H) 10th Sheff Utd (a) 3rd Rother...

Re: New Keeper

I know any signing has their doubts but these ones we’ve made this month in particular have massive points to prove and all 4 of their careers seem to look like it’ll depend on how they do here. Genuinely see no inbetween with our signings, either they will do really well and earn themselves big mov...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

This would be a pointless signing IMO. Bearing in mind we only have 18 games left and we play one up front and we have Bod and Meite (if he recovers) who have both done ok when fit I think it would send the wrong message to our contracted players. It would effectively say that the new manager felt ...
