Royals V Forest Match Thread

Well two teams, one manager both in a cluster cake of large proportions.

How do you like your spin?

" Jose Gomes first game as Royals boss saw his side end a narrow defeat with nine men."
Well that's one way of putting it by some un-named Beeb journo, who obviously carries a sweet spot for Reading.

A more factual narrative would sound like this; Jose Gomes first game in charge of the Royals against fellow strugglers Millwall, produced a 1-0 loss, while two players were sent off; both Blackett and Bacuna seeing straight red.
Millwall leap frogged out of the basement at Reading's expense at the same time.

They did well only losing 2-0 to Man U in the F.C Cup Third Round; with Mata [pen] and Lukaku [45+4] wrapping the game up in the first half.


There isn't a lot of New Manager bounce going on for Jose;

Manager Jose Gomes says Vito Mannone’s leaked comments about his exclusion from the first team represent ‘a discipline problem.’

Mannone has not featured for Royals under the Portuguese boss and not made the past two matchday squads.

The Italian’s omission has sparked speculation he is a victim of the manager’s clear-out in the January transfer window, with Pelle Clement, Josh Sims and Dave Edwards all leaving the club in the past week.

New loan signings Ovie Ejaria and Lewis Baker are set to feature for Jose Gomes' side at Madejski Stadium on Saturday afternoon (3pm). Gomes is expecting more new arrivals during the window and expects to offload about another six players.

Is there any good news or is the whole world going to hell in a handcart?

This lot are still seriously poor and we should beat them easily. The rest of Forest's First Team Coaching Squad are intact, at least according to the website. The squad will be coached tomorrow by Simon Ireland, assisted by Micheal Doorson who is still recovering from a hamstring injury.


Edited to add, that the name of our poor old injured central defender seems to trigger the pages swear filter: it's a funny old day.

Don’t worry Igor after last nights pitiful performance we’ll be playing you again next season. It won’t be overly surprising when you bottle the play offs YET AGAIN.

So you are counting yourself's out of the playoffs.

I'd rather YET AGAIN than never but we know that's not true for you in days gone by.

Yeovil and Swansea spring to mind,

Is 1999 your fav prince song by any chance?

Don’t forget Sheffield Utd and Blackpool.
And yes I wouldn’t give us a prayer of making the play off’s as things stand. But from your side I suppose we can add QPR to your glorious play off record.👍

I didn't want to be that hurtful including those other two.

In fairness, Yeovil would have sufficed.

Look what happened to QPR, what's his name did us a favour.

Hardly worked out well for Sheffield U, Yeovil or Blackpool in the long run

Lesson there somewhere

How many went up?

Sheffield and Blackpool, as you know the experience almost sent them bankrupt, Sheffield U have recovered well but Blackpool? Who would swap places with them now?

Play off success is short term gratification
