Thread: FT: READING 2 - 1 CARDIFF CITY. Match thread

  1. #61

    Re: New ‘spine’ today ?

    I don’t see a place for Ralls if I’m honest, although a big fan of his generally I feel he might have been one to have let go.

    He said the Villa lad had to train a few weeks with the team to know how we play so I’m assuming it’s the same sign Etete.

    Re: New ‘spine’ today ?

    Nelson must be favourite to take over from Ng with McGuinness taking his place on the bench and do any of last week’s midfield deserve to be dropped for Ralls to come in? Wouldn’t be surprised to see Harris start instead of Watters mind. Presumably, Philogene and Etete will come into the squad, so it may be Whyte and Tanner, or possibly Sang, to drop out.

    We agree yep I liked last weeks team and would only change due to the suspension.

    Maybe Watters last chance, I think he will be alright and will score today, knowing that Etete is ready to take over.

    I think Watters will start and play well today, Etete will hopefully get 20 mins?

It is unacceptable to have the level of injuries we currently have prior to our first home game. Even the most positive Reading fans are seriously unhappy this morning. This has been ongoing for a long time. We had the worst injury record of all 92 clubs over the past season and here we go again.
    We had loads of injuries with Warnock, I remember last year thinking how few injuries we had in comparison to previous seasons. It must be something to do with the training or fitness levels?

    We don't really have many injuries now, so hopefully Morison seems to be doing things right.

    So, who do you think would be the unfortunate midfielder to have to make way for Ralls? (I feel I'm repeating myself here )

    Ralls looked way off the pace when he came on last week when you'd have thought fresh legs time to shine.
    Very much doubt he'll start unless somebody has picked up an injury.

    Etete off the bench would seem a good ploy IMHO.
    If things aren't going our way and a different approach needed, I'm sure he would relish the chance to shine.
    Similarly if we are winning, give him some minutes.

    McGuinness seems the best option.

    It was just an observation….I hardly know all our players names yet….never mind if they’re any good or not ! I’ll leave it to the manager, he sees them every day

    fingers crossed might have found a way on my phone if it stays on this wavelength

    McGuinness for NG would make us a lot more solid at the back. NG is no central defender, he’s far too weak, and suspect in the air. He cost us a few goals with errors last season, and almost gifted another to Norwich on Saturday when he gave the ball away straight to their no.10….thankfully Alsopp pulled off a fine save to stop us going 1-0 down. I think wing back (wide of a 5) is his best position

    Would consider Ng as a better full-back personally, certainly don't think he's right at centre-back so I have no clue what Morison is thinking, does he have no faith in the others available?

    Denham over McGuinness on the bench.

    Tanner and Whyte the two to miss out as Philogene and Etete make the bench.

    Expected O'Dowda in over Sang, a little surprised with that one.
