Re: The “let’s all get totally carried away” thread

And it’s super Reading Super Reading FC By far the greatest team the world has ever seen No photos of any players, Sutekh? The last Reading team to win its first three games of the season (and fourth, and fifth, and sixth etc.) https://www.readingfcformerplayers.co.uk/photogallery/reading-85-86.jpg...

Re: Osho

Why haven't Swindon knocked on his door yet? He's a free agent, local AND good.

OR Oxford for same reasons plus they sold their other ex-Reading centre half to QPR, so must be a man down... almost like for like.

Probably Oxford... Lovely City, always will be an underdog, and I bet the pundits would't give them the grief we always seem to get.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

The Forest goalkeeper, Brice Samba, was rather outspoken on social media post-match at the Madejski which came to bite him on the arse inevitably on Wednesday night. If you were a player, would you not just not go on social media or get an agency to run it and post bland PC/fan friendly stuff, rath...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored by Chris Casper

Judging by our start to the season and Forests, I can only deduce that it was all Blacketts fault.

Re: Osho

Osho maybe the exception as he was offered a new contract. But there has been quite a lot of why didn’t we jus keep him on here. The reason was that they did not fit where the club wants to go and the mentality they wanted in the dressing room. This has been made apparent. Also they have replaced t...

Re: Goal of the Season 2020-2021

So, how did last week's goals v Barnsley rate? Meite eventually scoring from a corner Olise long range shot Olise's was special. The week before Velcro had been saying he needs to add goals to his game, and the following week BOOM, he does it. First senior goal, and of course it was great. As Snowb...

Re: Osho

I see he still has no club. Filled in at right back and did a good job. Cant understand why in these present times he would not accept the contract offered? I don't get this either. I can't believe he just didn't sign it. What is he doing now? Swansea and Brentford were apparently interested, and t...

Re: Rumour- Lewis Gibson

Sorry i don't understand the question. What do you mean? There's no long term strategy in place just endless rolls of the dice. Teams such as Sheffield United meanwhile go down, rebuild and move on to higher levels. Didn’t Sheff Utd go up with us and get relegated with us, then get relegated again ...

Re: Rumour- Lewis Gibson

Snowflake Royal I'll stick my neck out and say I'll see how the first month or two goes before deciding which hill to plant my flag on and die over him.

I will say that if he significantly blocks opportunity for McIntyre, Holmes or Richards and isn't here next season I'm likely to be pissed.


With you on that 100%

Re: BF I follow Barnsley

Surprised by the Swift scores - he certainly wasn't at his best but he had a big impact on key moments: - wrongly called offside denying a 1:1 - broke ahead of a Joao again and just gets beaten to the ball by a GK - Joao pulled back and defender sent off after another excellent long ball from...
