Congratulations Reading

What an achievement, how did they do it?

Lost two of their best players in the Summer, recovered from losing the Play Off final and an awful start to put an incredible run together.

Congratulations to Brian McDermott (and Jobi and Mikele).

Jason Roberts was a master-stroke. As I said at the time, sort of striker who we should have gone for in Jan.

But well done to Reading. Great scenes at the Madstad.

Yes congratulations to them. A superhuman effort. Let's hope they upset a few next season a la Norwich.

If he played another game for Blackburn he was due a contract extension.

Thought it was a free transfer? Wasn't his career essentially over?

Fantastic stuff from them. McDermott is a top manager. Interested to see how they get on next season.

He's on big money - given his age and salary, he's exactly the sort of signing we have been scarred with in the past.

It's worked for Reading, but they could afford it. Plus, what if we took Roberts and then finished mid-table? Massive waste of money.

They are a terrific team, with a terrific coach and a very well drilled back-line, plus some very underrated players in forward positions.

Roberts was the signing of the pre season...no doubt and not a surprise given his pedigree that he would be a success....BUT If Palace had bought him....Would we of had the same level of success,,,would our style of play (7 behind the ball at all times...no width) got the best out of Roberts?

We have a strong player, who many on here were raving about earlier in the season regarding his ariel threat, his back to goal link up play etc etc....DF has just destroyed him........confidence at an all time low and not even on the bench.......

As I stated months ago (before our bad run of form) I really feel sorry for GM in respect of the opportunities or more accurately lack of opportunities that we have been able to provide for a proven goalscorer....

If proven GS is to be questioned I watched Lambert for Rovers many many times over past few seasons and IMHO there is very little to choose between RL and GM....I know RL is a threat from set play but GM also has attributes that RL does not.

Bigger issue for me is what srtiker in his right mind is going to want to come to Palace next season?.....Strikers thrive on service and the confidence that comes of getting that service.........Our current style of play will never allow strikers of worth to show their value.....so who are we really going to attract or convince that the DF way is the correct career path for an aspiring goalscorer?

McDermott always comes across as a terribly decent chap. Who knows his stuff.

Wonder if the new owners (if they take over) will do the usual and sack him in favour of a name?
