From Despair To Where? If you've got a gripe with something the club are doing then I'm pretty sure the best place to direct that gripe is the club, not an internet mongboard. You never know, they may actually welcome constructive criticism.


He won’t do that though FDTW, no matter how many times people tell him.

Gabriel Osho has apparently gone on trial with Ipswich Town.

An excellent report it is, and posted really quickly after the game- just shows what can be done with a bit of effort :wink: In previous posts i actually have always complimented the club when they have done things right reference the Academy matches.
Is last night`s report a beginning of a seed change in the media department ? it could be but i somehow doubt it, because this has happened before that they are all over a particular match and then back to the unacceptable(my opinion) norm.
For fear of repeating myself lets go back over the last 3 matches.
Friday 18th October Middlesborough away- no preview/ no line up posted/ no score updates posted/ no report(actually there is but it is in the u18`s section tagged at the bottom of the U18`s report on their match against Villa on Saturday 19th October) 0/10
Wednesday 23rd October friendly against Brentford B at Griffin park no mention whatsoever from the club before/during/and after 0/10
Monday 28th October no preview on website(inexcusable) good social media coverage and good report quickly posted 8/10

As for the match Danny loader was superb and must be in the squad for Saturday. Blackett did ok, and the Royals should have won but comical individual errors for all 3 Villa goals saw 2 points dropped.

Royals and Racers Are you going to get off your ar$e and come to the game ?
Thought not !!


Are you going to get off your arse and actually complain to the club and try to improve their coverage? Thought not.

Not my job to !!! We have a “ home match” in half term and the club’s media dept can’t be bothered to mention it on the website but can post a report of Saturday’s U18 win.
Anyway 2-2 Loader

It's not your job to whine to us like a toddler about things you don't like but won't do anything about.

Perhaps you'd care to not do that too.

Btw, it's not my job to go to Academy games either.

People appreciate the work you do, yet when they see an update on this thread, they're probably looking for updates on the academy and development squad and not the same complaint that you made 7 days ago. The situation won't change unless you try and do something about it, so the point is making the exact same complaint to an internet forum won't do anything so it's a waste of yours (and everyone's time)

I can assure you that i’m not wasting my time, and to be truthful i don’t care if i’m wasting anyone else’s, just don’t bother reading or replying.

As you won't complain about lack of reports, perhaps you would like to send a note to the club, saying you enjoyed reading the report of the youth match. That way, the club will know they haven't wasted their time doing it. After all, if an organization knows what pleases their customers they will more than likely carry on doing it.

Can't say i'm surprised with the lack of coverage on the academy twitter, generally don't expect any coverage of the away games on there so just go straight to Flashscore.
