Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Also, a few people have mentioned we shouldn’t let him go unless it’s for silly money, which I understand. But what will silly money look like post the virus? Will players be worth on average 50% less than they were pre-corona? We literally have no idea. Reading will have less money, as will Celtic...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Michael is eligible to play for France, Nigeria and England. He has been capped by France at U18 level and by England at U19 (v Qatar U23). His brother, Richard, has played for England youth. For the record he is only 18 and has shown more promise when in the first team than Danny Loader so I’m sur...

Re: 25 years ago today

The highs and lows of football encompassed by both sets of fans in just one game. I remember the atmosphere from the Reading fans was amazing, and we played our hearts out for 60 mins and then ran out of steam. Bolton just about deserved it in the end, and we had to drive back to Devon, a pretty qui...

Re: Rumour - Rob Dickie

Cooper was decent enough with the ball. He just dropped at least one horrendous error every single game when i saw him My thought's exactly "Hound" from what i remember i thought Cooper was pretty good with the ball to feet, and with his height was a great asset to have in the penalty are...

Re: Best Reading FC performances in your lifetime

Losing 0-3 at home to Plymouth in the big promotion game if i remember correctly. Only for Reading to turn the game upside down and totally dominate the second half and win 4-3, cue sheer scenes of disbeleif on the South Bank.... :D

Re: BFTG Brum

Finally a team that can turn games around. Even better when it'a away from home. Plenty of character in today's starting line-up. After lots of false dawns. There does seem to be a settled core squad that just needs a little refinement for next season. Rather than a major rebuild. Gomes and Miagza ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (a) sponsored by Simon Church

Thought we played ok today, in the first half, especially the first 20mins i thought we looked very good with some great driving runs from midfield by Pele, Rhino and in particular Olise, that one run where he dropped his shoulder and ghosted past two Leeds players and that dazzling piece of skill w...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by Lloyd Owusu

Time for a shake up and change of tactics, we clearly can't play with one up top, and five at the back doesn't suite the players and hasn't worked. So back to basics and go 4-4-2 and play fast, high tempo football with the ball and press and hurry the oposition when they have the ball. Yes, we give...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

I dont watch Reading much anymore but that was men against boys. WBA were everything Reading weren't, aggressive in and out of possession quick to move the ball forward, quick to get bodies forward and a centre forward willing to work for the team and do the ugly stuff. I thought Reading were garba...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

Saying we are safe is very dangerous, we have yet to win a game in 2020 and our recent record is poor. Luckily at the moment there are also a few other teams around us with equally poor records. WBA are a very good team who press high, play with a good tempo and their passing game is effective and a...

Re: BFTG Hull.

We really need to up our game for Wednesday night, otherwise i fear a right drubbing by WBA, however we do tend to play better against the top teams. We really need to get three points out of the next three games, otherwise we could be looking over our shoulders again, yes its a ten point gap, howev...

Re: BFTG Hull.

Why the hell are we playing 5-3-2 at home against a Hull City team who's form is dire!! Away from home, yep i get it, but we should be taking the game to teams like Hull, especially if as Bowen says "We are still going to give the play-offs a go". Most teams play 4-2-3-1 these days and the...
