“Dare I say title decider? Would take a draw, but think we’ll sneak it.”
“Probably a step too far to expect us to win there again, go on you buggers surprise us.”
“If we go up to Sheffield midweek and win then will be very hard not to get carried away even though I know the objective is to avoid relegation”
“If we beat Sheffield United I will name my first born Paul Ince”
“Will take a point now. Be good to score away as well .McIntyre’s winner at Sheffield Utd was the last away goal before Saturday wasn’t it?
Certainly not scored in the last 4 away games over last season and this.”
“The one downer to this game that Reading have to overcome is their atrocious away league record for midweek games which now stands at 4 wins from 49 attempts and none whatsoever when the opposing team does not begin with the letter “B”.”
“If Reading are to do well this season, we need to score more away from home. We’ve only done it 5 times in 9 games under Paul Ince.”
“Biggest test of the season so far against a team who have an incredibly strong home record since Heckingbottom has arrived.Usually reserve some of our worst performances for this lot, Stam’s 3-1 defeat, Marshall’s gutless 2-0 defeat, getting thumped 4-0 under Gomes and one game of a long list of a Paunovic horror show so last season’s win was a pleasant surprise, got it spot on tactically
Will be difficult to emulate that but the general consensus is that when Norwood ticks, Sheffield ticks and vice versa so we can’t afford to let him dictate the play. Drinkwater, McIntyre and Laurent won the midfield battle last year and that’s where I think we need to target again”
“Sheff Utd are looking useful at the moment, esp. given they have a good few players crocked.”
“They look a solid team with some quality still there – likes of Norwood, Berge, McBurnie all decent player
Interesting to see Luton gave them a very good game though, imagine they aren’t dissimilar to us tactics wise
Still expect we’d do very very well to get anything from it. And don’t think we will”
“The CB they signed in the summer, Ahmedhodzic, is a powerhouse on FM22..
Kinda looking forward to seeing him play in a “I wonder how good he will be” sort of way.
The last CB that really impressed me at this level was Ben White at Leeds. Much like Emi for us he just looked way too good for the Championship.”
“”Reiterating a lot of the same above though, would happily take a draw from this game. Chalk off one of our most difficult fixtures of the season, hopefully with something to show for it and another point we can add to our tally that my be vital at the end of the season. If we battle like we have in our last 3 games, no reason to not believe we can’t come away with a win though.”
“5/1 to win. Lump on to fund that promotion party in May.”
“Just checked and we are now joint favourites to finish bottom, with Birmingham, so it’s an improvement lol”
