    We thought we got that when he hired Slade in 2017... I get your overall point about mangers being disposable and so on. Familiarity can breed contempt, and in the right circumstances, Robins would have to face the axe. I agree on this. However, one of the reasons for our success has been...

    Match Thread Reading

    We’re not even a quarter through the season yet and we’ve had some tough fixtures. Pressing the panic button helps no one. Contexts may change, but we should probably stick with Robins even if we did get relegated. In a similar vain how Ainsworth should keep his job, regardless. I have faith...

    We drew and probably should’ve beaten Swansea who moved into 2nd last night. Perhaps we can sneak a result, but I wouldn’t bet on it.

    Realistically, we’re going to lose this one by two goals, comfortable for Reading. I’m just praying we snatch an early lead and hold on for even a draw.

    Video Middlesbrough v Coventry City highlights

    We may have to play a combination of Kelly, Sheaf and Hamer in the middle to shore up the defensive side of the game. But then we’re relying on 3 defensive options in central midfield. We have to adapt something. Perhaps we could convert to a 3-4-3, with Giles and/or Jobello (when fit) on...

    Agreed. They are not justifying their selection at the minute. Tyler Walker to come into the side for me.

    Marosi has been really dodgy against low crosses this season. That last chance being the latest episode.

    Match Thread Middlesbrough

    We’ve just not had much production to warrant playing 2 AMs this season. At least Shipley and COH have goals in them. It might be worth being Dabo on to switch McCallum at LWB and push Giles forward. I’m happy with a point, but we’ve not looked threatening at all really.

    Not according to their commentators, got the beating of us apparently. Decent defensive showing so far, but the two AMs aren’t offering us anything so far. Gooden is so isolated and it’s not his fault.

    W**ps confirm premiership final

    Ok? Two separate sports and two separate governing bodies. The RFU and the Premiership clubs decided the playoffs was the best way to offset the international breaks. That was one of the contexts as to why it was introduced in the first place. That, and a big day out at Twickenham. Now, there...

    W**ps confirm premiership final

    As other people have mentioned, the playoff system is quite common for a number of sports. The context for rugby is very different too. With Rugby Union, international players who are called up play for their country in the middle of the season, do not play for their clubs during their call up...

    W**ps confirm premiership final

    Not too different to how we have a 3rd promotion spot using the playoffs. The fairest way to do it would be to have 3rd place, but also a pretty boring way to end it.

    Experience needed?

    I’m sure he’s up to prove he can do it away at Stoke on a Tuesday night. After all, the stars are aligned because we play Stoke away on a Wednesday night.

    Messi wants out of Barcelona... reckon we could swoop in?

    To be fair, you weren’t really fond of Robins in League 1 or 2 either. Two promotions later, I doubt there’s anything more he could do to win you over. At least your consistent in your criticisms.
