    Mowbray’s Future

    I think what many fans appreciate is actually Mowbray's honesty, he usually hits the nail on the head in his post match interviews but I agree that's a poor statement coming from him. His failure to turn things around is becoming a concern. Why was Downing allowed to leave when we were chasing the play-offs? It's not like Magloire is an improvement right now. Anything Scott Brown says from now on I'll take with a pinch of salt. Best midfielder in the club 😂

    ROVERS v Boro

    We really need Nyambe and Lenihan back in this team. I'm sure Mowbray will start thinking about next season now, and should give Chapman, Travis, Nyambe, Brereton and possibly one or two from the U23's as much game time as possible from here on out.

    Ben Brereton

    I agree he needs to bulk up and work on his first touch. For me lacks the braveness required to become a real goal poacher, and I'm not sure that is something that can be taught. Judging by his work rate on the pitch, I'd say it will take him a fair few sessions in the gym before he puts any muscle on.

    Reading v Rovers

    We're safe and sitting comfortably in mid-table with pretty much the same team that got us up last season. Horrible showing tonight, but Mowbray has improved the team and club substantially since signing.

    Reading v Rovers

    It's his first full season in the Championship. I would give him a little more time to develop, yes.

    Reading v Rovers

    Mulgrew and Lenihan are good defenders and make a good partnership at this level. Nyambe is good both ways and has big potential. Left side is our weakness, and Raya is horrible at set pieces but a decent shot stopper. A little prone to making mistakes, but still young. Rodwell I feel has good pace running in a direct line, and okay aerial ability, but when left one on one with the attacker there's trouble ahead.

    Hard to argue with that. Goals decide and impact games, and it became a totally different game second half and we lacked a response.

    And also why he loses possession in dangerous positions and gives the ball away needlessly. I like his style of play, but sometimes seems too eager and forces things instead of varying what he does and thus becoming more unpredictable. Difficult game for him to make an impact with Reading sitting back, he did indeed do a lot more than Conway managed for an hour, and I cannot fathom why Conway is such a trusted player by the manager. He's had one good game for the past three our four seasons.

    Who were shite until they got a goal from nothing.

    Reading v Rovers

    Yes, but too much ball carrying for me, same as Brereton. Needs to learn when to give and go and when to run at people. Thought he looked better in the early parts of the season, but has warranted a run of games by now to be honest.

    Reading v Rovers

    I think he outclassed himself to be honest. Reading offered little to nothing before their goal. It was in our own hands and we blew it.

    Reading v Rovers

    Got the lineup all wrong today, but guessing Dack, Graham, Reed and Nyambe all aren't fully fit. Lacked Reed's engine in the midfield and so many sloppy mistakes in the first half when we really could have been all over them. Then 1-0 Reading against the run of play and it was all downhill from there. Can't defend a lead and can't chase one. Season over. I hope Brereton and other youngsters are given some time on the pitch now at the expense of Conway and Smallwood especially.

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    Is there an extended loan window after the transfer deadline?

    JANUARY TRANSFER WINDOW

    If we fail to win promotion Dack will be long gone in the summer I think. He will want to test his luck in the Premier League, and BA would boost our chances next season if we stay in this league. Maybe they're funding the deal on the Dack money we'll receive in May - August, or it will balance itself out with the bonus we'll get from winning promotion... I really hope Madon is right on this one, we could really do with another striker other than Graham who can lead the line for 90 minutes.

    Ben Brereton

    I realise Ben wasn't match fit when he came but is he playing in any of the U23 games? If not then he should to get his fitness levels up, as well as gather some momentum against lower level opponents. I think fans have a tendency to turn on players who either are lazy or look lazy. Ben is long and gangly and doesn't seem to work as hard as some of our other players. We've had strikers in the past who lacked obvious quality or physical but still were very popular among the fans. Shefki Kuqi and Paul Dickov are two that spring to mind - I think if he can start there and learn under Graham, there might be hope for him.
