Thought our record at Pride Park was better, but apparently it's only 7 wins in our last 10 visits.
As much as i'd love to, I can't see us extending it. Going for an optimistic 1-1. Derby looked terrible earlier in the season (but then we used to look good) and so I hope Derby have a similar performance and that we don't throw it away by going down to 10 men.
The worst performance, home and away all season. Reading should feel totally fucked off that they didn't take the three points. I think we had one shot on target (other than the goal), truly awful. No midfield and nothing up front. Good that Clement was so pissed off but half of the problem should lay at his door for not changing the formation. I cannot believe the performance, absolute shocker!
It's been a bog-standard league really. We're kicking ourselves (firstly for not getting 3 points) but for our awful run of form. I look at all of the top teams and would say we can be better than, and generally have already proven this season that we can beat them. Ok, Derby we haven't, but both games 11v11 we were the better team there can be little doubt. Managed 3 shots on target and maybe four chances against us this season, despite playing against 10 men for 45 mins. Only team to outclass us were Forest.
Welcome to our season. We were crap for two months but even outside of that period we've done enough to be in the playoffs if we had picked up the points when they were sat there available in games like last night.
Really hope we can still make a playoff push. We can certainly beat anyone in this division on our day but consistency is our major problem. Get into the playoffs (and despite a dodgy record) I would fancy us. But we're so far behind..
That was the best we have played for a couple of months. McDermott has only being back a month but already the team spirit looks a lot better. Looked a more balanced side with players playing in their more natural roles. Since McDermott has come in Piazon and Kanu have been playing a lot better. Just a shame we are more than likely too far behind to get in the top 6.
I don't want to take anything away from Reading's performance, because they dud play reasonably well. The real issue was Derby, we were fucking awful, every player included. No effort, no idea of tactics to be played - just fucking awful.
Again, please don't take this the wrong way, but if we were playing a decent team, they would have had a cricket score.
