1st round of the cup or not for Martin to get the team to play that dominant is something else, lots of positives to take out of this, Brandon Cooper looks composed and calm he’ll be a good player for us.

It was nice to watch a team play football again

Just got home
Brilliant game, Naughton was at center center back, lati rwb, Piroe looks special
Youngsters did well
Was a weak Reading team and we gave them 2 free headers but we dominated

Looks sharp doesn't he. I would hope we give him a proper chance before investing in a number nine. One start, one goal.

Notable mention for Whittaker, looked good too and I think Yan moving deeper could be a masterstroke

Steve Cooper was an absolute fraud.

He sucked all the love and enjoyment out of football.

These players seem to enjoy playing football again… with a bit of freedom.

Long may it continue
Garry Monk Mk2 for me. Did better than could be reasonably expected in terms of league position based on the money spent, but by Christ was it hard watch. Very much sucked the enjoyment out of it. It's going to take me years to get over how they bottled the PO final.

I'd say Piroe is by far the best striker we have atm, his off the ball movement was fantastic, always looking to get in behind
All his chances were on target and required good saves
Id be surprised if Lowe and Piroe didnt start saturday

Sounds like there were about 10,000 of you there. Piroe looked good in his cameo for the last friendly. I think we've got a player there if we don't feck about and not play him.

Dan Williams looked good against Soton and looked good again tonight, a trainee Joe Allen/Leon will need some time but if he keeps this up he will be in the match day squad.

Felt like we were the home team :lol: not sure what the attendance was but I was surprised how little amount of them actually went, had to have been about 700-800 of us?

On the radio all we could hear was the JA. Excellent form the travelling fans, as usual. I know it's only a second string Reading side, but it's so good to have some real positivity about the place
