Reading – Sat 28th November 12:30 – What Can We Expect?

I’m not going to be knee jerk we’ve done well to get where we are, but I really think for the majority it’s the style of football as opposed to a poor result here or there.  It’s just so turgid and lacking creativity. As mentioned earlier if Warnock has served this up he would’ve been slaughtered. 

Maybe all the years have worn me down Len , and today we have been poor ,

but I’m surprised that so many people expect to be so high in the table and playing attractive attacking football .....when you look at our squad , DH new in post and the current injury and CoVid situations

It’s disappointing , frustrating , and spoils our weekend , but I think the Championship may be like this , this season , and I still think DH is building a base that may bring fruition , certainly not getting everything but getting much right too

My first thought on the selection was I was surprised we used the same 11 with such a quick turnaround - I know we were somewhat limited and I guess DH has his reasons , but more importantly if he thinks he called it wrong I believe he will reflect on it 

Im as gutted about the result as anyone , I do believe the overall picture is much brighter 

 

And FWIW I’ve watched Reading a few times and been impressed , and commented how well drilled they look 

Both Meite and Jao are handfuls when at it ,and they are a decent side with their new manager clearly having an impact

 simply they were good , we were poor 

 

Keep the faith mate

Sorry going to call partial bullshit there, Vyner has been good all season, Moore has  his moments but can be an absolute liability as we’ve just seen. That last goal for me deserves a changing room bollocking. Shit pass then not defending the ball when it goes free on the touch line, it’s your **** up kid sort it.

Who let Jao turn and score for the 3rd 

Also what was Massengo doing with that sliding tackle.

Play like that, and our destiny is to finish in the lower half of the league. Which would beg the question as to why Johnson was sacked.

Holden might still turn it around, but the fact is, we've been desperately lacklustre for more games than we've not.

I'm glad I'm not committing time and petrol money getting to matches so far this season.

Honest question, do you think we played that much better against Watford or Derby?

Kept Derby quiet and let Watford play in front of us without too much threat so yes. Second half today we didn’t and paid the price. Could cope with their strength and movement. Up there with Norwich in terms of poor defensive performance

It's the 4th season in a row we've had bad, rolling injuries. Medium to long term, first team and first reserve players.

Get all clubs have injuries but I really wonder about how constant ours are.

Don’t forget it’s the style of football,I swear the way we play doesn’t help,for years now we have been a counter attacking team and just running after the ball for a majority of games can’t be good

I can't believe some of the people on here. You would think we were 10 points adrift, routed to the bottom of the table. Yes we were poor today, but it's quite clear the fixtures have caught up with us. Reading were the better team today and deserved the 3 points. Taylor Moore has the ability and the potential. He needs time, and his decision making will improve with experience. It's a long old season and we still have key players to come back from injury. Let's not write us off today.

Good post mate thank you.  They were very good I thought. Surprised they’ve been on such a run before today. Some players there that will go on to bigger things for sure.

Some of the comments are probably heat of the moment and none of us like losing but lets not forget we have our entire Defence and Midfield out injured and we are papering over the cracks at the moment to still be forth is incredible.

And yet, it's still about not knowing how to attack. Don Goodman called it too safe.

This is my concern. The performances aren’t there and while the results have been, there are some warning signs that were over achieving. 

The problem is the truth is somewhere in the middle.

I have no problem with Dean Holden in charge now and ultimately the only thing that counts is your points on the board.

But we have been very bland this year (with many mitigating reasons I’m sure) and I’m not convinced you can build a successful season around that.

Obviously disappointing, but cant win them all, especially in current I jury crisis. Let's make sure we beat them back at the gate when hopefully more of our players are back!

No, you can’t win them all, but selecting the same starting XI as one that started around 64 hours earlier doesn’t do us any favours either.

No "probably" about it. People who don't say a ******* word after a good result but as soon as we have a bad one everything is shit and we're destined to finish in the bottom half.

******* embarrassing behaviour.

Bentley 10

The rest 1 or in a couple of cases 0

There we are...I’m not going to pick on individuals as everyone is naming their personal scape goat. (Moore and Vyner step forward for most)

.Wells and Martin did well with next to nothing!

Bloody furious with that. Embarrassing!

He’s been playing well for weeks now and the first knock back and he’s nowhere near good enough😂. Give your head a big wobble.

Been looking good for had experience with Rowe or Kalas there. 
No experience and he looked awful played over 100 games as a pro shouldn’t need experience there to help.

I do think a part of it is the fact we're trying to scrape out results with a piecemeal side though. Today has been poor for sure but I think part of the style of football is trying to compete without Sessegnon, Kalas, Mawson, Baker, Bakinson, Williams, Walsh and Weimann. I can't help feeling a more stable defence and a midfield with Walsh, Bakinson and Weimann as options would not be this turgid.  

I don't really get this piecemeal side argument. We put out a strong squad today

Today's performance was not enough.missing kalas not enough effort by everyone.the score could have been more.needs to go back to 4 the back and give us some more attacking flair up front.its the same every season great at start of the season then we fall away.this season will be no different.

You are talking shit because you are frustrated. No point discussing it as it’s so stupid. Enjoy your day👍.

I agree largely....But this wasn’t a bad result, it was a bad performance. To use your word, Embarrassing!

No but there is shame in not being able to pass the ball rather than continously hoofing it forward. Or just a complete lack of intent. Reading are just another average team in this league.

Reading are a very good team with some above average players for this division - would love to have Joao, Meite, Ejaria, better than anything we have.

We didn't play that well, but they were simply better and some of our players just couldn't cope with their attack and got roasted today. 

We kept it at 0-0 at half time which was good, but once we tried to take them on and opened up, they cruised to the win.
