Re: Defence

Back in the Pardew days, You had Alan Pardew ex attacker as manager and Martin Allen ex defender as assistant. Pardew actually said on BBC Berks that Allen used to concentrate on the strikers in training and Pardew the defence, It makes sense as by knowing their own playing areas well they can advi...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by hopeless causes

He can't defend, doesn't cross and is never in position. Made more interceptions and more tackles than any other Reading player last season and blocked more crosses than any other defender in the league. For someone who can't cross he has two assists already this season and was one of our top assis...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Terrible first half performance, still no shape, change in formation no doubt doesn't help, maybe Moore needs a rest, Gomes needs to stop pulling the youngest players off because he doesn't have the guts to pull a senior player off. We have no width in this squad. Thought Boye looked better in the ...

Re. Joao, yep, having lumber around in midfield, I'm not sure about (and not sure he is, either). He was behind Swift at times on Sat. Wonder how much thought has gone in to that, or whether it's just a way to get him on the park. Re. Ejaria, want a big game from him tonite. And I mean end product....

Re: MATCHWATCH : Fulham (h) sponsored by a Yann Kermorgant penalty

My problem with sticking with that side is that: A) Moore's been awful at RCB B) Joao's attitude and work rate stinks. Both have deserved dropping. Injuries and the captaincy has saved Moore. Gomes' inability to give any of his 'back up' players an extended chance has saved Joao even though he's be...

Re: BFTG WBA

Puscas played as a lone striker with Boye in the gap behind. Swift and Ejaria played deeper as well. (Away formation?) Rather than having Joao to play off of he was left quite isolated a lot of the time, did a heck of a lot of running in behind but the ball wasn't good enough. WBA were defensively ...

Re: Rumour - Puscas

Thing is I'd get it if we'd signed Rooney or something. Everyone knows him, he's a legend of the game. The players we have signed nobody had heard of a couple of weeks ago. Yes be happy we have brought players in but to see middle aged men on Twitter wet themselves over these signings is crazy. Tho...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Maybe, just maybe we're using pre-season to try a few things out. Working out angles and patterns. What might work What might not given this pretty important rule change* Some times we got caught out. Several times we also sprung the press by passing around it or chipping it into a spare midfielder....

Re: CONFIMRED - Liam Kelly

Baker was probably the nail in his coffin. In Baker we had a guy who wanted to play , to contribute to the team for the full 90 minutes of the match. Was happy to play in whatever Gomes assigned him too. Baker had far fewer Championship appearances too prior to coming on loan. There's always the ch...

Re: Pre season tour

I'm not sure what the relevance of signing Aluko has with whether Stacey stayed or not. Aluko would still have been signed even if we'd guaranteed Stacey first team football. He was a marquee type signing (lol) to appease the fans (plus Stam to certain degree) because we didn't get Oliveira. Aluko p...
