I’m on my own here, but I don’t see Miazga as a top championship defender.

He defended admirably at the end of last season, but I don’t think he’s all that.

I’d be very happy to be proven wrong!

Wrong thread, you need the Last Supper discussion....


Is it just me who gets mixed up between Nameless and NewCorkSeth?

I've always thought that they have very different personalities.

Seth is young and hip, although he wouldn't use the word "hip" himself, and is still working out exactly what he wants to do with his life. He is sociable and keen to be liked. He has owned a games console but not a desktop computer. He posts from his phone. He started supporting the club relatively recently, and relatively late in life too - in the McDermott era, when he was in his late teens or early 20s, and out of curiousity. He doesn't see any realistic prospect of owning property or getting married. He hasn't read a book for pleasure since he was eleven years old, but is quite familiar with several popular TV shows and has a subscription to a major streaming service. He has never made a habit of buying a newspaper and his main news source is Twitter. He studied a non-traditional subject at a mid-range university, probably Business Studies. He doesn't own a breadmaker because you can buy bread in the shops. After football, his favourite sports are boxing and golf. His favourite Reading player is Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Nameless is an older chap approaching retirement who is comfortable and settled in the person he is. He likes what he is and doesn't care too much if you disagree. His grown-up children bought him an iPad for a significant birthday but he can't work out how to turn it on - instead, he posts from his Windows 95 computer which he maintains himself. He was taken to see the Biscuitmen play at Elm Park by a male relative in early childhood and has owned a season ticket since before the Simod Cup win. He owns property and is or has been married. He reads and enjoys the theatre, but doesn't follow any TV shows, thinks music these days all sounds the same, and hasn't seen a film at the cinema since decimalisation. He reads a broadsheet newspaper and doesn't know what Instagram is. He studied a traditional subject such as History or English Literature at a red-brick university, and considers his degree to be more meaningful than the abundance of them handed out today. He doesn't own a breadmaker because he considers them scary new technology. Although football is his first love, he thinks rugby and cricket are the sports of true gentlemen. His favourite Reading player is Robin Friday.

I can only assume you're getting them confused because neither owns a breadmaker.

It certainly is quality and I'm willing to forgive all the stuff he got wrong based on the decent amount he got spot on/almost spot on. Bravo.

Couple of significant errors to be honest.
I don’t own a bread maker because making bread is so easy why would you need a machine to do a worse job ?
Ironically I only use an iPad.....
Other than that I assume you are in fact my brother !

If we have to go on the record about why we dont own a bread maker my excuse is I live in Paris. Nobody here owns a bread maker. I mean. Unless they own a bakery..

To be honest we can only really judge him on what he did in his time with us last season.
I can only conclude Pete was in jail, or perhaps living as a hermit up a mountain and is making his assessment having never seen Matt play.....

Yes it was and I am sat here remembering the stroll up through les jardins de Luxembourg on a summer's evening.
A lot more fun than arguing with a bunch of uneducated pedantic tossers on the subject of homophobia in football.

Yup to the bit in bold.

If he plays as well as he did last year he might rank as one of our best ever centre halfs.

Miazga is a real coup and I’m pretty surprised that we have landed him. It certainly feels a lot more likely we will now stay up.

As things stand injury problems seem light which will also help.
