Snowflake Royal
Royals and Racers So Reading announce today that Jeriel Dorsett has signed his first pro contract with the royals- this is on the website and Academy twitter. they also have a report of the Ladies team win yesterday(on website).
They however did not cover at all Friday`s U23 fixture at Middlesborough on the Academy twitter nor have they yet put a report on the website(only the result) not even who played !!!
I wonder if they will tell us before Wednesday that the U23`s are playing a friendly at Brentford.
I await the normal suspects making excuses that the media department don`t work Friday nights !!!!

You mean you await the normal suspects asking you not to bore us to tears with your usual complaints when you're not willing to make even the tiniest effort to let the club know there's an issue.

No one cares.

I’m grateful to Royals and Racers for his information about the Brentford game this evening.

Unfortunately something came up at work so I won’t be able to make the kickoff.

Good to see Nolan back on the bench and Lawless back starting.

Any ideas on formation? I don't know anything about Beeden or Caetano.

Beeden is the centre back they got from Tooting and Mitcham. Caetano is a 20 year old Brazilian
Brentford lead 1-0 at the break we are playing 3,5 2

Beeden’s the CB they bought in from non-league (Tooting?) isn’t he? Scary looking chap, huge.

Edit, yes as above

I remember Tetek from when he was a 9 year old playing in the Oxford Youth League - he's only 16 and already playing for the U18s and now in the U23 squad. Osario is also the same age and also from Oxford. Both really great talents.

Osario came on as sub against West Brom U23 earlier this season and looked good playing left wing.

Thought we were second best throughout to what looked like a scratch Brentford team.

CBC distribution was atrocious, like Stam had never left. Replaced by Myles at HT who gave away the crucial second goal with similar witless frigging around in his own box. Third was also a mistake leading to an OG.

We do all this controlling the ball but never look dangerous except to ourselves.

Caetano got an hour, taller than expected but not in tune with the pace. Brentford 7 Zamburek looked much better.

Liddell took his goal well, a lob.
