Re: BFTG - Charlton

Was in the ED stand so had the opportunity to see his performance fairly closely second half. Was very surprised he wasn’t subbed. Gomes decided to go for a more unconventional approach instead. Which totally fcuked us. Absolutely this. I saw Boyé and Meité getting ready to come on and assumed it w...

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

I don’t think there’s any harm trying things in a game like that, thought Rino did well at RWB. Was less impressed with Richards on the other side who was lightweight and gave the ball away cheaply too many times.

Re: BFTG - Wycombe Away

That’s a very good write up. It was a frustrating game in many ways, we controlled the first half but couldn’t find a finish then a sloppy goal to concede after HT but couldn’t fault the reaction to it and some nerveless penalties. All the new signings looked decent, Puscas will definitely be a crow...

Re: BFG QPR

Still not quite sure how we won that game but three points is three points and a great team effort overall. Aluko's goal must be up there with the best ever scored at the Madjeski, certainly for individual goals. I really thought once that had gone in we would go on and make it an easy win but we se...

Re: BFT £&*@!! - Burton

Our players look scared to take any risks when in possession - always looking for the safe, usually backward pass - and I place the blame for that entirely at Stam's door. I simply don't believe a more direct-minded manager wouldn't get more out of this team, and more excitement with it.

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

I would grudgingly take Pardew back - his direct style is probably what we need to get us up the table at the minute. Though I expect he'd be off at the first sign of interest from a bigger club, the judas oxford.

Re: Players you'd like us to sign thread

Apologies if he's already been mentioned, but what's Nathaniel Chalobah's situation? He did well for us on loan a few seasons back and doesn't seem to be any closer to the Chelsea first team. Could be a good Williams replacement but I guess WCBAP - he was rumoured to be earning 35k a week from Chels...

Re: Youngsters debuts

Remember seeing Steven Gerrard make his England Under 21 debut (at the Mad Stad) and thinking he was going to be an amazing player.

I don't think it was his debut but Jake Cooper was awesome against Everton (and Lukaku in particular) in the League Cup earlier this season.

Re: Would you cash in on Blackman?

....bit like saying Jamie Cureton wasn't up to much. Offered very little to the team, but earnt us many points with his goals. Blackman is not fit to be mentioned in the same thread as our Lord Curo. Cureton's goals were crucial in getting us out of Div 2, Blackman's goals haven't had anything like...

Says who? It's only the cost of his termination which would be any impediment to ditching him.

Re: QPR (H) Match Thread - Sponsored by Colin

Ian Royal In fairness to Clarke and I'm not a fan, he can't do much about that sort of mistake from Al-Habsi.


Well, other than not signing him to begin with - he did have a reputation for howlers after all.

Just bumping this to say his latest book TSF: Access all Areas is an entertaining read though with a very sobering (and genuinely upsetting) ending. It's also so blatantly Kitson now it's hilarious; tells a story of him getting a red card at Old Trafford, a game his club then managed to get a draw f...

More than matched them for the bulk of the game, a draw and ET would have been a fairer outcome. Our goal one of the best team goals I've seen at the Madejski. Al Habsi - 4 thought he should have done better with both their goals though haven't seen replays, kicking was good Gunter - 6 Cooper - 7 ve...

Nice welcome from his new manager (via BBC) - Napoli coach Maurizio Sarri said on Monday: "I don't know anything about the player. If the club picked him then he must have some quality. I train whoever the club puts at my disposal." Slightly off topic has anyone here watched Gomorrah on Sk...

Re: RUMOUR - Michael Hector to Palace/Chelsea

How do we reckon the £4m works in the context of the loan-back? All the cash up front? What if he picks up a bad injury during the loan spell, deal cancelled?
