lucky goals? are you high?   oh yeah watford lucky to beat us too yeah yeah i remember...  we are woeful end of, reading not even out of first gear and shrugging us aside

So their game plan was for Douglas to tread on a ball and for it to fall into the path of their striker?

Or to handle the ball and break away for a goal?

Evans will be a hell of a 5 aside player but just doesn’t have the athletisism for a big pitch.

so you reckon Pears saw his mate in the Riverside so was off for a chat?

I hope some of you Prophets of Doom take the time to look at what you were saying before kick off. How you wanted the likes of JRC, Lenihan etc. and now you want them kicking out of the club. Pathetic.  

Always the same on here - complete over-reaction either way if we are winning or losing.

4 home games. 1 win against the mighty Wycombe. Out of sorts? 

🤷‍♂️ I've seen us play better than this, haven't you?

All this just doesn’t make sense. We have possibly one of the best squads in the league and for some reason can’t get the basics right. All falls down to the Manager, we will never get anywhere with him in charge. Even if we get a result tonight, my opinion will never really change.

We absolutely have to score before halftime. Good spell at the moment, but we need a goal at the end of it.

Douglas/Elliott left hand side looks promising

This is a joke. 

It's almost like Mowbray deliberately sabotaged the team by putting Evans in when we're doing too well.

And why isn't Kamisky playing?

He's just got carried away with his own hype again has the manager. Thinking he's sprinkling his stardust on something that didn't need it.

They've scored two fortunate goals. They've hardly broken the enigma code.

Reckon they've got a few more goals in them sadly. They've got both full backs and the midfield beaten on the break.

Like I said, 4 home games, 1 win, and we can't defend and never have been able to under Mowbray.

They are very impressive, quick, strong and skillful all over the team.

We've never been consistently solid at the back with Mowbray in charge.

We have spells where don't concede for a few games but overall we've generally been suspect at the back, even in league 1.

Mowbray has never been about the defence in his entire managerial career.

Reading look a top side, big, strong, quick all over the pitch.

Everything we're not

If anyone wanted JRC at right back before Nyambe they want their head examining.

Defensively this is dire. What is 'pathetic' is expecting fans not to be angry about this defensive horror show when Mowbray has fed us the same faults for 3 years. Defensively naive and spineless.

Reading may yet take their foot off and we may get back into this because we look decent going forward.

Tbh, can't blame the manager for the injuries we have. We are badly missing Kaminski and Ayala who would come in for Lenihan and Pears. Evans wouldn't be playing if Johnson or Travis were fit. 

Nyambe should be on instead of JRC, but it would be very difficult to drop JRC after a good game against Coventry. 

It's just the Rovers curse for me... we can never make it easy for ourselves.

Not exactly. Probably just put the defence under pressure and the mistakes will come.

He'd never drop Lenihan.

Imagine if Bell was putting in the performance that Douglas has, pitchforks would be launched over the stadium!
