5 wins in a row for the first time since Karanka 👌

What more is there to say about Izzy? The kid is a star who has a knack of coming up big in the biggest moments. Matt Crooks is signing of the season by a long long way.

Just seen the highlights. *** me that cross by Jones. 5 minutes into stoppage team he pulls off that piece of individual display. Totally leaves his man flat footed and sends a pinpoint pass into the

Winning when you are not playing well is a formula for promotion

And keeping your head up when all is not well is a formula for improvement mate!

Balogun looks good as well

Agreed he looked full of potential, more so than Connolly who looked 'busy' but not too much else today

It's the classic overreaction, his movement was very good and on another day he scores 2 from the chances he had 

yes he did move into good positions i suppose. he might not be as bad as my initial reaction. still got work to do to win us all over though. balogun had a few lovely touches and looked promising from his cameo.

This might be a daft question, but is there a reason we didn't have any ball boys? Reading spent most of the game time wasting, and their job was easier because our players and coaches had to constantly fetch balls.

Payero deserves his chance over Tav next game

His time will come and Wilder will keep with a winning team as much as possible until injuries or a mare performance develops.

Tav did ok and was helpful in achieveing the first goal

    • Yes I totally agree. He’s already admitted he could have put Fry on but even if he doesn’t we have a forward on the bench and there’s 7 minutes left why not put him on with Forss instead of playing a midfielder out of position.     what a total kick in the balls that result is, feels like a defeat. 
    • hopefully in the next week there's gonna be a few surprises.. I mean, wasn't wilder on about 4 new players?
    • I don't think we're signing a right sided central defender.
    • signed 3 free transfers and 3 loans.. only paid actual cash money for 2 strikers, both of which have been referred to as being 'ones for the future', and combined fee's for both mount to 1/5 of what we've received from Spence & Tavernier. So obviously our main striker is yet to be bought. As far as I can tell so far, we've mainly just been covering the players that have exited the club after last season. So yeah, the club need to pull their finger out. Wilder clearly also wants/needs an LCB that will work with his system. Then if he's decided to play McNair as a CM this season, imo we need an RCB that fits wilders tactics better than Dijksteel. tbh I think McNair should be a great RCB in Wilder's style though, so if he's just covering in CM atm and will go back to RCB, then we need another CM imo, probably a proper out and out defensive one. So I'm gonna say.. 3. 3 actual proper signings, that show a genuine ambition to get promoted - there's £20m still in the kitty just from the money we've made from sales..
    • They only had the chance to lob in the box because we gave it away sloppily. Overall we were brilliant and should’ve been up at least 3 or 4 by then.
