Re: BFTG - Plymouth (A)

Too early to tell obviously, but any signs Obita will be able to challenge Richards? It'll be interesting if/when he does come back to full fitness. It's such a difficult call to make, isn't it. I would love to see him on the bench as soon as possible, maybe even Saturday, but we have to be so care...

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

Woke up this morning feeling like I enjoyed the game, but I certainly didn't think that in the first half. We were very poor with the ball. Offensively we struggled to get Boyé and Joao working as a partnership, but that will hopefully improve with time. I thought both players did OK, but in isolati...

Re: BFTG WBA

1-1 was a fair result in the end. But another very good performance against a team that has designs on automatic promotion. It's hard not to get carried away, given the last two results, but I still think we should be satisfied with a top 12 finish. We lack squad strength at right back, in midfield ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : West Bromwich Albion (a) sponsored by as hard as it gets

Royals and Racers 1 change Boye replaces Joao


Hope he knows how to hold the ball up, reckon we'll be under the kosh tonight. That West Brom line up looks a bit too strong for us, I fear.

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

I walked into the stadium with my son telling me he doesn't want to watch Reading anymore.

We left with him singing Sweet Caroline and begging for a shirt with Puscas on the back.

Why?

Because my son is a demanding little shit!

Oh and we were awesome today. 8)

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

I still don;t understand about 10 days ago we were under a soft embargo, and now we've spent millions in fees and wages, without really letting anyone go, well certainly not in the numbers we were expecting. Is Mr Dai going shot or bust, hoping to get out of the Chump and so escape any retribution ...

Re: Rumour: Lucas Joao

Wednesday fan at work said he is a good impact sub, but tends to go missing whenever he starts. His goal scoring record seems to support that.

Wouldn't write him off though, Gomes may be able to get the best out of him.

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Interesting. Not sure we would use another loan on a goalkeeper, so could it be a permanent transfer?

Otherwise, the loan move for Virginia is a bit of a waste.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (h) sponsored by new season optimism

Trying to avoid a kneejerk reaction. Midfield needs two more and we need a striker that can hold the ball up. Nothing we didn't already know.

Struggling to find any positives tbh.

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Well. It begins tomorrow. This is the squad as far as I can tell (I included CBC as someone said Gomes named him as our 3rd choice?) and we still have 2 big holes. Exciting times ahead. Is Barrett an AML? GK - Virginia, Walker, Andresson/CBC DR - Yiadom, Watson, Howe DC - Moore, Miazga, Morrison, M...

Re: Lucas Boye

Is a winger who can play up front what we need? More experienced option than Loader, Barrett and Olise who can play there. But genuine out and out striker is surely more important? Maybe the club are trying their best to bring one of them in too and we should just be happy with extra options. Those...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Hound
Zip I can’t remember many chances created by Swift last season.


I can’t either tbh.


There was that game at home where he won the ball deep and played it with the outside of his boot to Barrow on the left, who crossed for Meite to score.

A glimpse of what he is capable of.

Re: Those were the days...

How many times these days do you watch a boring draw and yet afterwards both managers seem delighted that they "controlled the game". Well maybe, but you didn't bloody win! Football should bring in a bonus point for goals scored, similar to Rugby. It would probably ruin the game in the lon...

On a night when he didn’t have many clear cut chances he still made a reading by his vision and work rate. his ball for me...
