Re: The only course of action now...

You have to question how many of the players actually want to be at the club....... No tenacity, no spirit , no flair. Sacking Stam isn't the answer. Isn’t that Stam’s job to implement those 3 things? Yep, it's the managers job to get the best out of the players at his disposal. He's not doing that...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

Stam has disrespected fans for a while now. When he started telling us not to bother coming, or asking what they wanted if they dare let out a groan or boo, he made his bed. If they choose to turn on him and sing negative songs about him - not that I have or would - I can't overly blame them. He sho...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

I am in the In camp. Think sacking Stam would be steps backwards. I think Reading under Gourley and Teverden have an idea of the brand of football they want to play, so people complaining about that need to forget about it. For me personally I have enjoyed watching Reading play this season - except...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

I have to say firstly I think there is a massive overreaction to these comments. In my opinion Stam is the best manager we have had for a very long time and it would be a shame to loose him because of this. I think Saturday was the worst we've played all season maybe with the exception of QPR, yet ...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

Whilst I wasn't booing, I was pretty uninspired by the display and a bit annoyed at another seemingly lethargic and ineffective performance. Week after week we are creating nothing, yet he keeps coming out and saying we were 'unlucky' or the 'better team'?? Stam needs to focus his attention on worki...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

a) there really wasn't much to get behind, although for some periods the noise was ok. b) why are people so obsessed about day trippers? so some non hardcore fans come to the game, what is the big deal?

Re: BFTG - Wembley

Why oh why, after 46 games, and 180 hard fought minutes in the play off - would Stam set his team up like that, seemingly playing for pens (alongside some abject performances on the pitch). Can't really fathom it. Well played Williams who was immense today, but on the day we didn't deserve it. Neith...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

This takeover stinks, I know for a fact Chris Samuelson is all over this, and the Premier League are clearly exerting pressure on the FL over these guys. Can you imagine what will happen if we go up, get TV money, get relegated, get parachute money... I wonder where that will go? Not only that but I...

Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

Isn't it about time the club said something publicly about the takeover situation. Can't believe people aren't threading up on this. Agreed on this. Of course it would be disappointing to miss out on the play offs but I have a feeling that the lack of any kind of direction from the boardroom, or re...

Re: Sheffield Wednesday (A) Predictions

Given that we have been beaten by most half decent / top half teams away from home, I'd be quite confident in predicting a 3-0 win for Sheff Weds. Probably falling apart after we've had plenty of possession and missed a few chances at 0-0. :D

Re: Stam Interview on BBCRB

I'm with Stam on this one. How can you not be concerned? How long is it taking to sign Ilori? I'm assuming potential Chinese owners having to put up some form of promise for the money pre-takeover. Why have they not taken over yet? Are they fit and proper (probably not given they've failed this test...

Re: Are The Youngsters Being Frozen Out?

Surely a better case in point is Dom Samuel. He is now back to fitness after a good run in pre-season, yet can't even make the bench... even with the shortage of options up top.
