Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

Thought we did ok mainly in the first half and Meite could and should have won it with the one on one chance , mind you the ludicrous tannoy announcement blaring out as he looked to score may have put him off. Having sat in our usual Y24 seats first half we decided to do the old fashioned " go...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by Bobby Williams

Interesting call for Bowen Rafael Gunter Morrison Moore Blackett Pele Olise Swift Adam Ejaria Baldock Walker Osho Obita Rinomhota Meite McCleary Puscas Harsh on Obita who has looked better in the last few games but I’d rather Adam in I think Aluko outperformed McCleary today but I’m not sure Aluko ...

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

I thought most out there were average to be honest. No real stand out players, no one really poor Apart from Loader. Sadly he was so far out of his depth again today and the more I’m seeing him, the more I question what does he actually have The Aluko hate is predictable but also wrong considering ...

Re: Pedro Mendes

He was decent enough at times, but he was certainly soft at times as well. I thought him and Moore could make a decent partnership, but to be fair, Miazga came in after him and completely showed him up. Would have been a good player in a back 3 or one with a bit more confidence. Certainly haven't m...

Re: BFTG - Forest v2

I would understand if he felt that way bit its football. Happens every day. Yeah, I'm sure, in his head he knows this is true, and it wouldn't have been different at a different club. But emotionally, it's different. I think - emotionally - he has moved on from Reading - the days of him taking a lo...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Jason Bowen

I know but I am struggling to think of who will go out wide or fill that gap who isn't going to be involved against Bristol - pretty much left me with Aluko. Think I would rather have any youth team player there, could even put Loader out on the left I guess and play Puscas up top. It is the sort o...

Re: BFTG - Forest v2

tbf to Gunts, noticed he was in the box for our goal yesterday He can do it, and I think he would be braver with Yiadom in front of him. And yeah the idea of that nice little triangle and overlap is good. Sort of thing that Adam is very strong at as well, in terms of threading those balls through f...

Rafael Gunter Miazga Moore Blackett Olise Pele Rino Obita Baldock Puscas Give a few like Swift and Ejaria a rest but try and keep as many of the first team as possible Walker Yiadom/Richards Morrison Adam McCleary Boye Loader Maybe not, Aluko confirmed to be starting on Saturday.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

Christ they never shut up about Puscas do they? Swear every time he does something they find a way to say why it isnt good enough. But if Gunter or Adam or Morrison does something wrong it's all "That's not like them". Hope they're not going to start hounding him the way they did Matej Vy...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

Southwoods an interesting one. The others can all go from that second list Southwood has just got a new deal till summer 2021. Back on loan at Hamilton Academical, but I strongly suspect he'll be given the chance to claim the number 2 slot in the summer. Because otherwise what's the point of signin...

Re: Matt Ridenton

Reading have declined the opportunity to sign Matt Ridenton. A source told BerkshireLive: "He was neat and tidy but not quite what we wanted" which sounds like a polite way of saying he wasn't very good. https://www.getreading.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/reading-fc-end-interest-new-...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

Could we? We've lost 4 games under Bowen, max 2 in a row and we've gone no more than 3 without winning. What I meant was - they are all very losable games on paper. So, IMO it wouldn't be a shocking indictment of Bowen & the team if we did lose all 4 of them. But if we win one & draw a coup...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Eamon Dunphy

But we were always going to lose at some point and as I pointed out after the Fulham game, the best measure of the potential of this team is the reaction to a loss/couple of losses. We don't want a 14/15 or 15/16 type end where we just drift away It was something we were really good at in 16/17, un...

Re: Rumour - the first of the Brazilians ?

maffff Local reporter down there saying there haven't been transfer talks but Mattos has asked every club what players have dual EU citizenship.


Anybody got the faintest idea about whether a EU passport will be of any benefit by the end of transition (still 31/12/20)?

Re: FA Cup 19/20

Club 1871 closed for the Cardiff game. That will go down well. Always going to be the case though in the Cup if the away side take their full allocation. Would imagine all 1871 STs were made aware of that when buying them. Sure some will complain though. Don't recall getting anything about it, but ...

I can't see in any way why this would be a good thing for the club. I'd be genuinely concerned if I was a fan about just how messed up their accounts are Yes, this. I'd never do it because, apart from trying to find that kind of money up-front, I'd be worried they were desperately trying to get in ...
