  1. Reading now trying to sign andy Carroll on top of drink water and all the others. These are not restrictive signings....
  2. How are reading able to sign halilovic, Baba Rahman And Scott Dann with a supposed wage restriction of £8.5k per player. All three of them would have been on way more than that....
  3. Stoke and QPR will make top 6 and/or challenge for title
  4. Our biggest hit will be on wells. Won’t get anywhere near what we paid for him and doubtful anyone would take on his 27k wages in full. Someone we need to get off the books however imo if we are to move forward
  5. Brownhill, David noble
  6. Only issue I have with semenyo is he never or rarely ever takes on his man on the outside. He is supposed to have pace, power, strength and trickery. When I’m a one on one situation, which he was on a few occasions tonight, does he not drop his shoulder and take his man on? May find more opportunities are created if he did! Can’t stand him just running inside crowding the middle and play ending up to nothing
  7. Sheff Utd after downgrade from QPR by all accounts. Can’t see them going for bentley and if they did, no reason why we can demand 15-20mill if they can sell a worse keeper for more.
  8. John swift masterclass incoming. Could be a tough watch

    Let not compare the legend that is Louis Carey with Vyner please

    IMO, vyner is not a championship defender. Should be back up at best or moved on when a replacement is brought in. Don’t buy into the emotional connection of being from our academy. He’s not good enough in specific positions but is average as an all rounder. We need far better. More pace, dynamism, athleticism and defensive ability along with the ability to put in accurate and intelligent crosses consistently. I’d go as far as to say Simpson is far from good enough either but accept his experience may be handy. The right back position, if not addressed before the window closes, will be a big cause for concern and a big reason why we may end up in a relegation scrap. This of course is just one issue amongst many others that need addressing but from the three games played this far, most of the goals conceded have come from that side I believe.
  11. Just a shame we still have a certain amount of our fan base who are either racist or just very small minded or both and can’t accept the purpose behind the action of taking the knee. It was clear to hear the boos that rang out but fortunately the majority drowned it out very quickly. Just disappoints me that it happened in the first place
  12. Question needs to be asked, will he be missed? No is the answer so it’s an easy sell, especially with minimal time remaining on contract. He has his pros but I think he will very quickly be forgotten, no disrespect intended
  13. I can see numerous that have joined yours already...
  14. Ignore this, I’ll delete it given it’s only me in it!
  15. To note, this is the league code - P985TKpgrUKyl6R-FICf1g
  16. Guy doesn’t have a clue. He’s just a glorified human vidiprinter
  17. Code should work fine. Double check with L’s and I’s

    Maybe signs there of improvement with a decent set piece taker but in the main, we have been extremely wasteful and I hope to god this improves this coming season as it may well make a difference between a win or a draw in a few games. i expect this season will be about defensive solidity and trying to steal 1-0 wins here and there, then we build on it going into the following season with more improved transfers. I’m not expecting any fancy played, high scoring games from us this year so set pieces will be crucial

    Chuck state at it all we like, the simple fact in my eyes is we don’t make the most of set plays like corners enough. I never see any intelligence go into them to at least try and score. Just hit and hope for what is essentially a free ‘box entry’ (sorry for that phrase) and I just wish we would make more use of them considering we don’t create an awful lot in open play

    Anyone have any idea what our aim is at corners? There never seems to be a plan or any thoughtful/Planned movement nor does the corner taken ever seem to be aimed for anyone specifically. I feel there are so many opportunities wasted at set pieces that are just taken aimlessly in the hope something happens. Missing a trick here with tall players like atkinson and baker in the team. Also wonder why o’dowda takes corners when James is by far the better set piece taker?
  21. On today’s showing, and it is only one 45 minute performance, I would happily see Scott play the o’dowda role instead of o’dowda. So much more effective with use of ball, movement, retention and attacking intent and all at the age of 17!
  22. Watching them play Leicester atm, they are a world apart from us in terms of quality and attacking ability. That won’t be our game this year though. I think we will just try to pull off 1-0 wins whereas qpr will be high flyers imo
  23. I’ve got QPR as my dark horses. Signed some good players early and are very good at both ends of the pitch
  24. If anything, that will be our weak spot this season, that and not scoring many goals
