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

royalp-we Wouldn’t surprise me if Bowen goes for the below rearguard in the replay:

Howe - Burley - Blackett - Richards


I would. McIntyre will be a certain starter I would have thought.

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

The total lack of first team subs was certainly odd... even if the starting XI was fairly strong. Any chance Bowen is trying to make a statement about squad depth and signings? This was my issue. No problem with the starting line up as a lot of the players starting are pushing for a place in the fi...

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

We do seem to be picking up more bookings than the opposition at the moment, It happened with Forest who somehow managed to get only two players booked at our place.

Re: BFTG Cardiff Home

Nobody seems to know what these racist/homophobic chants were. From one of the Cardiff messageboards one of their supporter Trust guys saying there are no arrests and there will be no investigations.

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

McIntyre will be back for the replay. Bowen is right to give the club every chance of making the play offs. Yes it probably will be a fruitless exercise but at least he’s giving it the best shot. Just need a Joao replacement on loan before 11pm on Friday to maximise the opportunity. Wonder also if ...

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

I agree completely with Bowen’s no-risk approach. He truly believes we have a chance of the playoffs. Although I won’t be too happy if he starts Burley and Osho in the replay now we are without Miazga and McIntyre - he surely has to bring in either one of Moore or Morrison for experience? McIntyre ...

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

What excites me more is seeing players good enough for the first team, but not currently playing in it, and Academy players getting game time in lower stakes matches. You can argue all you want about taking it seriously, but we're not out, we've rarely gone out playing a weakened team when playing ...

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

I did. Still a pointless competition that has robbed us of a senior centre back, potentially for the next two months. F[u]ck the Cup. The FA cup has obviously diminished in importance since the start of the PL and Champs League. But - for a Reading fan, if a long FA cup run doesn't excite you then ...

So presumably Burley or Osho on the bench for Tuesday night. Miazga possible ligament damage.

Last thing we needed was another game in a meaningless cup competition. It’s not a meaningless Cup competition. When it gets to the latter stages teams take it seriously. A place in round five is not to be sneezed at. Sandy really shouldn`t get a reply to that trolling. The oldest and best cup cpmp...

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

Just coming back - an odd game with an odd atmosphere. Home fans really didn’t seem that bothered about the game, very gentle Cardiff are a hideous team. Diving, cheating, little kicks, backing in - all sorts. Whole game plan to get corners and free kicks which they got loads of - and tbh pretty em...

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

A few random thoughts... - Was thinking before KO that it couldn't have been the plan for Adam and Yak to have full 90s given Brizzle on Tuesday. - What actually is the point of Loader. He contributes nothing. - Mcintyre was great bar the first 5 minutes and the needless 2nd yellow. - Richards and ...

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

So another game to come which sort of defeats the object. Had we played a stronger team I suspect we would be in round five.
I understand the game time given to peripheral players but is it too much to expect first team players on the bench?

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

How the actual oxf*rd do you take House back off after minutes when that total shit show Aluko is on the pitch. Agreed but I really feel Bowen should have taken this more seriously. I don’t mind the starting line up but let’s have senior first teasers on the bench. Doubtless Aluko will still be her...
