Hear, hear Ian.

Reading’s best player since Jimmy left.

A game without Gunter marauding down the right is a sad game. Haven’t seen any attacking influence from our other right backs.


You need to stay off the Coors Lights me old son.


Horrific beer.

We wouldn’t be 3-0 down with Gunter at left back, 1-0 more like.

I’ve never seen a more unjust half time score. Very flattering for Leeds.

I don't understand this.

None of their goals were undeserved. They haven't needed to get out of 3rd gear to get where they are and, in response, Yiadom somehow seems to be our biggest threat?

If nothing changes this has the hallmarks of an absolute drubbing,.

I'll say Loader looks OK but he doesn't get enough opportunities and his general play wont improve if he doesnt get the practice at this level.

This relegation fight is going to be decided by which of the other 4 teams is more shit than the others as it's safe to say Ipswich are gone and Bolton will go too.

I'm starting to think it might be Millwalls spot

Half time ratings

Martinez - 5

Yiadom- 5
Moore - 3
Miazga - 4
Blackett - 4

Baker -5
East- 5

Meite - 4
Swift - 2
Barrow - 2

Loader - 2

Swift, Barrow and Loader are so so so poor it's unreal

As for Moore, I'm so sick of watching him, he's one of the worst passers of the ball I've ever seen

East grew into it after a poor start, Blackett was playing OK until his pathetic attempt at defending for their third

The most confusing thing for me is that the commentator seems to think we’re on an amazing run of form

That and our decision to return the ball to Leeds every time we foil an attack.

Yeah. They look like they could score any time they get a half chance - their finishing has been brilliant, but three flatters them.

We've not threatened much and we've faded out the game once it went to two, but we were on top until they scored and were competing ok until the second. We just don't carry a threat and Gomes has no answer to their high tempo, high physical press.

Old Man Andrews Liam Kelly should have played. Would have made all the difference.

Leeds have looked really good in that first half. Confident and clinical. We are actually not too bad on the ball but have no answers to them when off the ball. No shame in losing to a team playing like that. Let's go out and try to shorten that goal difference.

We've actually created some good opportunities but wasted them. We are still paying the price for Clement not signing the right strikers at the start of the season and seemingly thinking that Meite would consistently score.

The other thing that is killing us is all the injuries. Can any other club in this division have anywhere near the number of first team/squad players out through injury? As for the time to get them back - are they still sat in the waiting area at casualty?

Christ another 45 minutes of this......I can't see us conceding less than 5. Leeds look like they can even shift up gears if they have to.

Exactly. We're playing one of the best teams in the league and under little pressure we're just giving them the ball over and over again and we wonder why they're scoring goals.

Absolutely nothing lucky in a team winning 3-0. Leeds finishing has been exceptional but it has helped that we are so lightweight

no midfield and no strikers so no surprise. Just waiting to see which Reading player will collect the next injury.

Wigan 2 down now.
