If you could choose one player from the DC era to play

In which case everyone voting for Joao because Reading have turned him into something decent have missed the point a bit... he showed what he could do in odd matches for us but we could never rely on him in his whole time here to do the business.

 

Has to be Fletch really.

 

Honorable mentions for Wallace, Lopez, Lee and Nuhiu.

 

90% of the replies in this thread have missed the point mate, tried pointing it out to no avail. 🤷‍♂️

Technically Lee and Nuhui were one season pre Chansiri but I see what you mean

Hooper was the best player we’ve had here since the premier league, but wouldn’t choose him as we’d just fire long balls at his head. So I’d say a fit 2015/16 Kieran Lee

Joao showed remarkable ability during his time here. He was an absolute joy to watch at times. 

 

He's no better player now, than he was when he was here. He's just got a manager that trusts him and plays him in his best position. The closest he got here was Luhukay...who he performed very well under, but was subject to a more much defensive, structured system than one that allows him to utilise his unpredictable, enigmatic style of play.

 

Carlos managed Joao horrendously. We had a perfect striker that we had the opportunity to bed in during his first season, and then let him loose in the 2nd. But Carlos went out and signed Fletcher...then Winnall...then Rhodes. All who were less suited to the way we played then Joao. (Don't get me wrong, Fletcher didn't let us down and was a decent signing...but he never suited the style of play under Carlos, and we had to change the system to suit him)

 

Joao would've got the goals he's scored for Reading, in the system that Carlos played. For me, out of the catalogue of errors we have made since the Playoff final.... not maximising Joao's potential goes down as the biggest error.

Fantastic player, would buzz around in midfield and help us play much better but doesn't offer that much of a goal threat and would be creating chances for forwards who are not effective. 

Fletcher would be the most effective player to bring back with what we currently have now in terms of getting us more points.
