Re: Clear out started

Just seen Johnny Williams has gone from Crystal Palace to Charlton.Shame. He would have been a good cheap signing. ...assuming he could stay injury free for more than 5 minutes. Also totally lacked confidence, did you watch Sunderland documentary?? Worried also about new loan signing who was also p...

Re: Clear out started

Probably one of the worst things to do to a pro is put them in the under 23's. However if they've been a disruptive influence then its the right decision. Just can't see Manone & Mcshane being those type of players. Clear out necessary as we are losing a million a month at the moment. Can only s...

Re: BFTG United (A)

Finally, corners, can someone please tell me the point of short corners. I know our team isn't blessed with height but short corners always result in the opposition getting the ball off us We've lacked a good corner taker for a while. Need someone who can whip the ball in with pace right into the 6...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Manchester United (a) sponsored by down down deeper and down

I think their forwards are weak and will struggle to score goals against our tight and strong defence. Expect an upset

Re: January Outs

If the plan is to get rid of players first there won't be much time to get in any new players by which time we will have lost another 4/5 games and be destined for Div 1 You do wonder if there is now an acceptance that after 4/5 seasons (bar 1) of fighting relegation we are saying to re-build we mus...

Re: BFTG QPR

Crikey, I've read a great deal of bollocks on Hobnob over the years but I think the assassination of Swift must be right up there. Anyone with half a football brain and who went to 'Wall and QPR can see that Swift (and Rino) was the MotM in each game. Swift is the one player with real quality, visi...

Re: BBC Radio Berks

I gave up listening to them years ago. Disagree......Adi is a passionate Royal and talks like a fan. I like that. Tim Dellor sits on the fence too much for me and never gives a clear point of view. Mick Gooding you feel wants to say what he's thinking but then says the obvious in "safe mode&qu...

Re: BFTG Boro Home

A brave but flawed selection. It was obvious Baldock alone up top was going to be totally ineffective. The youngsters all did well. If Bodvarsson is not fit why was he on the bench? Not a 100% nor match fit. Little point in rushing players back. Lot of fixtures come close together. How do you get m...

The Reading FC players who fans want to keep or sell in January transfer window

Is Jonathan Lowe doing his best to make sure we go down this season? He has just issued a list of all the players Reading fans most want to get rid of. Can you imagine a player reading that and what it will do to their confidence or motivation?? Players are just like us human beings with the same em...

Re: Nigel Howe appointed new CEO

My only experience of dealing with him was negative. They say you should not go back. Don't think he cares about long serving fans. Sorry just my experience.

Re: Who goes in January?

Judging the kind of wages we are paying I would imagine a few going off on loan only. Aluko to Brentford at a cut price fee perhaps??

Re: Clement's week on a beach in Dubai last week

I wonder how he enjoyed his week in Dubai whilst the rest of the squad, sports scientists, coaches etc were hard at work at Hogwood during the current international break? Back today I believe to a not very wholesome reaction. Dressing room lost. Not doubt considering what to spend the remaining 2½...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Clement hanging on by the skin of his teeth I reckon. I like his honesty. Unlike Stam is totally upfront about the team's performance. Calling the first half performance embarrassing live on radio was spot on. Sending a clear message to some of the players. Yes agree with his honesty but that can o...

Re: BFTG - Ipshit H

Based on the game today and with the return of McCleary, I would be tempted to bring Gunter back in the side and give Yiadom a rest, allow the Gunter - McCleary partnership to be reforged, also agree about O'Shea, I think we're asking too much of a 37 year old defender, Ilori while not perfect has ...

tell me the mean number* of injuries throughout the league and what standard deviation RFC is from it if you don't know it, you shouldn't really be commenting as you're guessing Stats are fine of course but having watched Reading for 56 years just don't remember so many injuries.
