Ha, not on Baldock’s ‘defending’ for their goal last week.

Still utterly baffled by wtf he was doing. Comically bad.

NewCorkSeth NO! Not having it. No, no, no, no, no, no. Not this oxf*rd time no. No, no, no, no.

He has no aerial ability to speak of and is positionally poor. His biggest weakness the entire time he has been here has been his closing down. oxf*rd me. I would rather play him in goal.

We'd need at least 3 CBs out. We're more likely to go 2 CBs or play him or Howe or Rino RWB with Yiadom at CB than Gunts imo.

If we genuinely got stuck with Moore, Miazga and Morrison injured or suspended I would assume any number of McIntyre, Blackett, Yiadom, Pele, Odimayo, Rinomhota, Richard's, Walker, O'Shea and Baldock would and should be ahead of him there.

:| oxf*rd hell, he's not that bad.

It's come to a pretty pass when you're defending Gunts. :lol:

I'm glad he's back in the senior squad, I don't think isolating him (or the others) was good for anybody. But I don't expect to see him unless Yids gets injured. And I fully expect him to leave in January unless he starts getting into the match-day 18 before then.

Pity in a way - a bit like his Wales caps, he's stuck on something over 290 games for Reading - would have been nice to hit the 300.

I'm happy with him now he's not first choice.

Not good enough or positive enough for first choice, but 'Mr average always fit 6/10 performance' is exactly what you want in a back up player.

Ideally you'd be paying him rather less of course.

Bit of poetic license to hammer the point home. 4 of those are certainly ahead of him at the CB position.

Yeah. Stranger things have happened than Gunter returning back to the fold. Baldock got in from exile, McCleary seems to have played himself into contention from exile. All Gunter can do is work hard and show he’s ready. Then he’ll possibly get a chance again

There's nothing certain about the second 2. Yiadom is a possible but it's weighing up who is better at RB / RWB. Odimayo has been nowhere near the first team so can't be more than maybe.

Meh. I reckon on this purely hypothetical situation that is pretty unrealistic Yiadom would be more likely to play CB. Odimayo is a CB hence his inclusion. Though I accept you doubt his involvement.

We could be a booking away from seeing Chris return to the team. Andy Yiadom has 4 bookings and 4 games to get through before the “amnesty”.

Always impressed me how our lads had worked out the bus route on that first game.
The well orchestrated attack on the Luton bus was pretty impressive tbf.

Yes, as referenced by me above. I went to both.

1-2 and 3-2 I think

It was and Watford and Leeds were the only two teams we didn't beat that season, drew all 4 of those games.


That was the season with hindsight when my feeling of cursing the team started (before that i'd only seen us lose once in 3 seasons). Went to both the Watford and Leeds home games (though I had a great day for Watford anyway as given seats which turned out to be behind Coppell, saw them filming the Championship in front of me etc etc), saw that Luton game as mentioned above, we had a TV game against Southampton which we won 2-0 but only saw last 30 mins or so (?) as was on a night out with mates and couldn't persuade them to go to a pub showing the game any sooner. By that point we'd scored the goals and were just playing out time.

That Leeds game in particular felt like a defeat (I thought we were unlucky not to beat Watford - Oster hit the post), and then it took ages to get out of the HP car park causing someone to go up on the kerb to beat the queue :roll: remember it being mentioned by someone on here at the time. Then a 2 hour journey became 3 as there was an accident in roadworks on the M2 disrupting my plans for the evening.

Reading scored after 15 seconds I think, then in the last minute. Got no favours from the ref as I recall with Doyle being clean through near halftime only to be brought down cynically on the edge of the box with I believe what was felt at the time should have been a red card for the Luton defender and free kick on edge of the box. Still with a 21 point clearance over 3rd place at the time I don’t think too many lost much sleep over it

We beat Southampton 2-0 on 10th February (2 games before Luton beat us). That took us to 82 points.

Watford finished the season in 3rd on 81 points.
