Reading were garbage the other day against a fairly pedestrian Brum side. Ever since they beat us its like they've been going through the motions and just wanna start planning for next season under McDermott.

 

Its all very strange because they have a fantastic squad there and really should be in the top 6. They certainly have a better bunch of players then Brighton, but obviously they lack that cohesion and self-belief.

Hello again!

 

Back to represent the blue and white side of this tie!

 

Feel free to check out our match thread for this game here: http://royalsrendezvous.co.uk/topic/10435408/1/#new

 

As I'm sure you can guess, we are all picturing a good stuffing from your lot, probably just revenge after the reverse fixture earlier in the season when we were at our best. It's quite tight at the top of the table right now though, with Brighton & Hove Albion threatening to move into the top two, so I guess 'Boro will be after maximum points until the end of the season.

 

I'll try and stay active during the game tomorrow night on this thread

One thing I learned a long time ago being a Boro fan is we never 'stuff' the teams we are meant or lose to the teams we are expected to, I'd take any win tonight even if you have 20 shots on target and we have none and an own goal gets us over the line - I fancied your team for a promotion chance and I'm sure you won't make it easy for us tonight - but I always bet 3-0 and 2-0 so I'll cross my fingers for the 2-0. Good luck

After watching the match last night, I am very concerned, Brighton are a dangerous side, they are more attack minded than us. With players always trying to move the ball forward. We cannot afford to slip up tonight with them breathing down our necks.

Brighton were gash last night I thought.

Agreed, second half they were outplayed by a very poor forest side and could easily have been 3-1 down by the time they scored their second.

 

They did well to grind out a win, don't get me wrong, but nothing on show last night worried me.

Yeah same to be honest, even Chris Hughton came out and said after the match that they didn't play well, and a point would have been a fair result.

 

On that note, how much class has Hughton got than Dyche, I know we can't be picky at this stage, but if you gave me a choice I'd much rather Brighton go up, than Burnley.

Always liked Hughton, Good manager, and never really in the headlines that much.

 

I though Brighton were pretty average last night. Certainly didn't worry me about us having to play them again. However, I do hope we have it wrapped up before the last game!

So many posts regarding Reading, it's great to see how other clubs see our season having gone.

 

Quoted the above poster as, with our season 'over' now, there has been a noticeable lack of loan players in our starting eleven, aside from Lucas Piazon from Chelsea who is intrinsic to the formation played currently. Skillfull players like Ola John have been relegated to sitting on the bench, and coming on when we are losing. He's certainly one to watch out for when on the ball.

 

McDermott has publicly stated his desire to look at youth, so every game I expect a flooding of faces from our academy (although a Tuesday night trip to 'Boro might be past their bedtime!)

 

I think I'd agree with Norwood being one of our best. Danny Williams is another to be wary of, he can strike a ball from distance. Yann Kermorgant can claim the ball in the air, but has recently been unable to follow such action through with a goal. Along with the misfiring Cox and Vydra, I can't see our forwards giving you too many problems tonight.

    • I always prefer to see an older keeper between the sticks. Besides having had more time to develop their technique and learn to read play, they tend to be more confident and able to command their boxes, work with the defence etc. I really would like to see Stojanovic given another chance. Failing that, bring in an experienced keeper in January...even if its just a loan deal.  
    • The lad only just turned 19 a few days ago. If he can get a good loan in january and also spend the whole of 22/23 at a decent club in League 1 or the Championship then it could really help his development.
    • Yep pretty sure you're right on that. I don't feel entirely comfortable either but I'm still a Dejan believer so I'm a little biased lol.
    • Great one DZ. I reckon we will go unchanged. Maybe Fry in for either Bamba or Jones  - if Wilder wants Dijk at RWB to be a bit more solid, but I reckon he'll go with Jones' pace. I also reckon it's too early for Payero to start, so he will be benched. Would be good to see him come off it with a strong cameo. Dejan will leave probably on a free and Coburn will go out on loan if there are any suiters. A half season in League 1 or 2 will do him good. I doubt we'll go undefeated. Stoke, Muff and Forest are a tougher run than we've had under Wilder so far. But a win at Stoke will surely breed a lot of confidence and really put us into the mix. However I think it'll be a 1-1 game. 
    • This season is probably as good as its going to get for Coburn. I'd imagine next season he'll face much stiffer competition for a place and he'll see much less game time. He's still young so it's no bad thing for him. Depending on who we bring in, he might even go out on loan. Might see Kavanagh get the odd cameo towards the end of the season if we're not threatening the play offs.
