    reading- another awful performance

    Yes but I thought we played as well against Toon and WBA but didn't get the early goal our play deserved. This time we got the first goal when we were in the ascendancy and should of had 2 or 3 more before half-time!!
    Thought we would end up the same when Reading were the better team in the first 20 minutes of the second half. Fortunately we managed a second and that won the game especially with the 3rd so soon after. Just my opinion!!!
    Great result hopefully we can continue against QPR next game.

    • Good result and two good goals by Daffy.
      I thought we dropped off again in the second half (not quite as bad as against WBA), but oddly got two goals - the performance was ok, but not as good as the opening game against Toon. Reading's defending was appalling at times and they posed little threat coming forward.
      Maybe it's me though, but I never saw the so called high line and pressing game and I thought the passing, although we kept the ball well, lacked a bit of 'zing' - it seemed a bit slow and pedantic at times.
      I also thought the T'Hudd sub was a bit negative, but it could have been that by introducing him the aim was to push Dembele on.

      The next six games look to me as break even in points terms - 4 homes, 2 away - I'd guess at 14 points max. Hopefully, they'll surprise me and pick up the max 18 points and get away wins over Utd and Southampton.
