Good results tonight

 

If we can get to 0 points by weekend, we could be out by the Saturday after.

 

Derby look no hopers - just need them to not sack their gaffer for a while longer. I expect Wycombe, Barnsley, Preston, Rotherham, Brum all to be down there too and I think we’re better outfits than the lot of them.

Really do dislike Rotherham, oh and Boro, another goal for Joao tonight as well. 

 

Boro were always going to be a different animal this season under Warnock.

 

Rotherham have held their own so far but they don’t score many and always likely to concede.

 

Reading have recruited as well as anybody over the last 12 months and Joao always had the talent, we just didn’t have the managers capable of getting the best out of him? That said Lukuhay didn’t do too bad with him then inexplicably dropped him. Bizarre?

 

As for Derby, they’re slow starters under Cocu. They were last season.

Thing is you can see teams like Derby and Forest picking up, both got some quality. Like has been said still 7 points off safety. Sounds a lot doesn’t it. 4 would sound a lot better this time tomorrow though.

Think I would prefer Wycombe to win a game before we play them, although they have Norwich and Watford to play before us. Would hate for us to be the team they get their first win against. We do seem to have a history of being THAT team.

He went for reasonable money I thought. Yes, could have got more for him in the Wembley season but made sense to keep him at the time.

How on earth would we have got more money for him when you look at his apps and goals? £7M with add ons was decent money. He's not prven to be an elite player at this level.

Derby will be sacking their manager soon. Could be bad news for us keeping Marriott if they do. 

If he bangs the goals in he'll be back there in January regardless of who is in charge.

It was reported at the time as 5m rising to 7m with add-ons and that we have a 20% sell-on clause.

So he was talking testicles then? 

 

Thanks, thought as much

Tell us the break down of the fee then as you seem to know it? 

According to reading fans its 580K a year for 5 years plus add ons
