Re: Best loan signing

Dopey question. Matt Upson, no contest. Arguably one of the best players I have seen in a Reading shirt.

Re: World Cup 2018

I couldn't be further from "blindly supporting him". I hate England football and never support them, I didn't watch last night and feel no passion at all for the team. I respect your views but I ask you, what do you do? Fans like you continually seem to blame managers. At what point do yo...

Re: World Cup 2018

I gave you the reason why he should go. He clearly cannot motivate the players, he is potentially the worst manager England have ever had. By blindly supporting him you are just part of the problem. Part of me thinks you're joking in order to try and be funny but sadly I think you may be for real. ...

Re: World Cup 2018

What a complete load of old tosh. It is the FA's fault for putting Southgate in that position when he is neither qualified or suitable for the job. Southgate needs to go immediately and be replaced with a manager who is a motivator of people. Sticking up for Southgate is laughable. Tbh I find it &q...

Re: PA Announcer

I thought he was worse than usual, and yes it was DJ Mega Party. In fact on the BFTG thread I mentioned that he'd gone back to being a tw@t again All this: "whether you sit in the west stand... or the ED stand... or the East stand, we need your support"... and "Well, after a great 45...

Re: World Cup 2018

Bit of a rant again, I know The Cap enjoys them :wink: I did LOL last night when numerous tweets were calling for Southgate to be sacked. How terrible a manager he is, how boring the football is and a lot of comparisons to Reading. A few points: When, in recent times, has watching England been exci...

Re: World Cup 2018

Wasn't watching it too closely but it wasn't that bad and the job was done It's never easy against a team that sits back. We'll be better when we get to a knockout stage! Rashford looked good. Kane although he scored not at his best Wouldn't say Slovenia sat back, they had more chances than us. It ...

maffff
Hound reading through the options, think I'm just hoping Stam is able to turn this one around


Agreed.

Better the devil you know....


How long do you give him to refloat the sinking ship ?


It's the 5th of October. You give him a lot longer than a month and a half!

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

If Wales failed to qualify for the World Cup and Chris Coleman stepped down would he be an option in the event of Stam departing? Got a very poor track record in club football, would be skeptical.

Re: Gunter

Favourite comment on Twitter: https://i.imgur.com/SnxiuKR.png People like him shouldn't be allowed phones, the guy is a loon. Gunter is a perfectly adequate Championship RB who is far more suited to international football. He is also given more freedom to express himself in a Wales shirt that he sh...

Re: In or Out?

There is zero point in sacking him right now IMO. If we continue on this run and are down the bottom by mid-December then sure get a new man in but it is only early October. There is so much time to turn our season around and move up the table. The most concerning thing about him is the lack of abil...

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

Obviously this is hypothetical and I want Stam to stay but here is my idea. He looks set to push for qualification but wouldn't mind seeing Micheal O'Neill. Hes done a fantastic job with Norn Iron, was easily the manager of the Euros for me. Probably plays too boring a style to really excite anyone...

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

There is only one logical answer. Neil Warnock. Track record of getting unfancied teams promoted, galvanises struggling squads, plays a more direct style that our supporters seem to want and has worked wonders at Cardiff. I know he is a controversial and polorising figure but I think if he's the ma...
