Reading 3 West Ham Utd 0 (10/12/11)

Postby thejackhammer on Sat Dec 03, 2011 5:55 pm

Let a new winning streak begin 8-)

Image Image
Saturday 10th December, 3pm KO

Form Guide:
Reading: LWLWWL

West Ham: DWWWWL

Reading sit 11th in the table, 5 points off the playoffs on 27 points, 3 wins in their 10 home games, with 4 draws and 3 defeats.

West Ham are second, 2 points behind Southampton, and go into this game on the back of 4 consecutive away wins, with the best away form in the league. We all know where this is going...

Danger Men
Reading:
Adam Le Fondre: Joined from league 2 Rotheram after Shane Long left for West Brom. Has scored 5 goals in 11 starts for Reading, having netted 4 in 4 for Rotheram before leaving.

Jobi McAnuff: A former Hammer and a but everyone hates him down at The Madjeski , he is also club captain.

West Ham:
Carlton Cole: Has seven goals this season and is in good form, he may not start the game, but has shown he can make a good impact off the bench as well.

Mark Noble: Has found his feet under Alladyce and has made our attack tick recently, he'll look to open up Reading with his passing.

Kevin Nolan: Say what you will about the captain, but he is second top scorer with 6 goals this season, and will look to push us to recover from our result against Burnley.

Prediction:

We'll lose two in a row for the first time under Big Sam, Southampton will pull further away, and I'll be forever banned from making match threads. For those who are going, enjoy the game!

Managed to get tickets for this game, am slightly over-excited as I haven't been to a game in three or four seasons. :D
3-1 to us is my prediction, although it could be tough.

Nice and easy one for me, 20 minutes on the train. Any locals with a taste for ale got recommendations? Thinking the Hobgoblin looks alright

me to. being disabled I can't get up to Upton Park, so I regularly go and watch games at Reading, and this is the only time I ever get to see West Ham, play - Reading's performances this season at home have been far from impressive and with our away form we really should win this.

After yesterdays slip-up I fully expect a West Ham backlash and give Reading a 4-0 drubbing. :)

Of the players we have available at present, to score 4, somedoby will probably have to score 2 of them. Who do you think we have who can do that ?

Cole, Piq, Collison, Noble, Nolan, Carew can all score against this lot. We have scored 36 goals in 20 games, it's all possible. 8-)

You might have to go back to boxing day for Carlton, I think, Piq might be as far back as the FA Cup semi for Portsmouth, Collison may never have, Noble against Manure last season, Nolan scored a hat-trick last season against Sunderland, and Carew hasn't since his Villa days. I now see your point Puff.
