Best centre back pairing

I feel our best 4 centre backs are pretty similar in level; which two (assuming 2 only) would you pick?

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

My general thoughts/observations: 1) Bowen: “McCleary is a similar player to Araruna and I wanted him to get baptised in championship football” or something like that. But... Araruna is a defensive midfielder who has played right back. How the hell does he think they’re similar? 2) I love Liam Moore...

Re: Rumour - Alexandre Mattos

Has he started yet?

Needs to look Mark Bowen in the eyes and say 'is that the kind of football you aspire your team to play?'

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored double header

One absolutely class move to score and then men behind the ball trying to hold on. Really crappy to watch. Adam is ridiculously good at kicking a ball but shit at everything else. Ejaria is ridiculously good at close control but weirdly frustrating. Puscas is superb at running onto balls but useless...

Not joining us, but Brentford once again bossing the transfer market. Fosu was always going to be good, will we have any clause for him? Baptiste will be brilliant too

Re: CONFIMRED - Charlie Adam

Was worse than being with 10 men today due to Adam. Could have been sent off (diving), lost the ball NINE times. Didn't press the ball. Awful.

End the experiment, play Pele/Rino/Swift.

That was very good by Millwall, but pathetic by Reading. :x

Alexandre Mattos - Director

Hugely respected director of football in Brazil has accepted a job working for Reading.

Hoping he brings the next Reiner with him

Re: Speculation - Andy Rinomhota

Jagermesiter1871 Distinctly average player people love to rate as young and academy. Feel like I've heard that before see Liam Kelly and many before - are people starting to turn on Rino now?


Rino is quality, but out of form for many reasons.

Re: BFTT Barnsley

If I was a Reading player I'd be asking for a transfer, the team is a mess and my career would be going nowhere. Absolute shit-show.

What is our gameplan?!

Something that's annoying me: "Charlie Adam played well tonight' Yes. He did. But he should be no where near the starting XI. HE CANNOT CLOSE DOWN!!! He's a liability out of possession and it's not the 1980's any more. At best he should come on in the 80th minute when were a goal down and that ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

I was a huge Gomes fan based mainly on how he united the club. I liked how he wanted to do innovative (4-2-2-2) things; if you get to the premier league you need to be doing something a bit different, otherwise you'll likely just get beaten by better sides. However, I'm very surprised at the lack of...

Re: Manager v luck etc

Luck plays a part, but anyone who knows backgammon realises it's about mitigating for luck.

Was Gomes lucky? At the start, yes; arguably, very. This season, no; arguably very unlucky.
