Re: Reading Fans Living the Dream

Simon Cox and Jake Taylor were playing together for a spell under Adkins. Was Obita also in the side then? Danny Loader and Jake Cooper were also big Reading fans. Seems like we have some “rule of two” thing going on- Taylor played with Cox, who played with Obita, who played with Cooper, who left b...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a)

Pepe the Horseman
Snowflake Royal
NewCorkSeth McIntyre is our best player in ever position.

We all dream of a team of Tom McIntyres?


He's half your age!

And he's no Ejaria.

Re: Next 10 games

If we make the playoffs, Brentford are the team I fear the most and are the best team on their day. Swansea are really nothing special and I'd back us to beat them with a full strength team. Quite a bold statement considering we`ve not beaten the Swans in 14 meetings since 2008. (D6 L8) We’ve got t...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

The more I think about it, the more it makes sense for Bayern to do this. With the UK now a third country, young English talent will come at a premium to Premier League teams, so either Omar succeeds and is a star ala Jordan Sancho, or he struggles and is sold on to a middling Premier league club, ...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Aluko?! We have a match tomorrow! Must mean Meite is back Or he will be on the bench and only used if needed - Tetek is playing too and on the bench most games. With 9 subs now, there are always likely to be players on the bench who may not have been if the matchday squad was 16 or 18, so they need...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (h)

If, if, if. Most teams are 2 or 3 injuries away from issues, other squads are also not as big as you think. Yes most bigger than ours but still relatively small. As it stands, we have a clear week after Saturday. Early view is that Morrison may only miss that, or even at a push be OK. So rest him a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Blackburn Rovers (h)

Really? Both acedemy grads Holmes and McIntyre have served us well this year. Proven to be good and possibly the strongest we’ve had for many years. It’s absurd to suggest otherwise. Plus both players can play various positions. As mentioned earlier, it’s paper thin, but we have a squad where playe...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham united (a)

Was the exceptional goal that Rotherham scored at the start of the second half offside? It looked good to me, but the angle wasn’t great. I thought exactly the same at the time, but can`t find a replay to confirm. Edit just seen it on ifollow highlights- he was in an offside position when the ball ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (h)

I don't know if the science has been done for football but in rugby it has. If you have two rugby players travelling at say, 14-second 100M pace when they collide they impart a force X which is the two speeds multiplied together That speed is 11.2 MPH so their COMBINED speed is 125 MPH If they are ...

I never buy that tired thing. OK you're a bit knackered after the game and might have picked up a bit of stretch here or there but you're running around for 90 minutes doing something you enjoy and want to do again, not gouging coal from a coal face on a ten hour shift, working in the burning heat ...

Re: Rumour - Richards to Everton

Not sure what’s happened. Omar was absolutely outstanding pre injury but been oridinary since and really poor today. I would still see him as comfortably first choice though. Head turned by the interest. Lost the application to succeed. Loader is hardly making waves in the Porto B team. Who sit bot...

Argument already made mate They were good chances which should have at least resulted in shots on target. We fluffed our lines End of . You’re being unrealistic. A chance like Rino’s - about 20 yards out, slightly wide of goal - is unlikely to result in a shot on target and even less likely to resu...
