Reading between the lines

Just the one swallow, but it's a start.

 Wednesday 18 September 2012... The Birthday Girl Who Died With a Sandwich In Her Mouth.
.
 Some Readings About Reading ... Italy Next.
.
 Like you our Pub went to Reading with heart and head in mouth. We came away with both intact, Three points and a frame of mind that has meant this week at work has gone ever more quickly.
 .
So just because it has been a little while since we saw three points who, what and why did it happen. Indeed a short early critique on why our Pub is increasingly optimistic about our prospects this season.
 .
Kent Pub Musings.
 .
We don't often do post match assessment but in this year of Andre and the turmoil that the press has attempted to foment, what a refreshing performance from a top four side.
.
A caveat of course. It was Reading after all. No disrespect to the Royals, just realism.  So who did what and more importantly who will do more and who will do a lot more.
.
Vertonghen
 .
Continues to continue. Majestic. Early days for the coronation but seems to have slipped into the Premier League with ease and the succession to King Ledley's throne seems assured. Great bit of transfer bisiness and given his interviews about choosing Spurs over Arsenal... say no more.
 .
Brian Mc Dermott.
 .
Yes I know he's not Spurs but... Little Britain anyone,
 .
 Kyle Walker.
.
Why did he have his hand up there that high in the first place. Howard Webb . At Old Trafford it was nailed on even if it was not a penalty but a push. Our cabbie mind says is Howard getting a little better at this refffing job.
.
Later on it seemed Kyle was getting tired. The lazy missed trap on the touchline that went wrong. The lack of energetic back tracking late on that led to their goal.
.
Still his willingness to push on and present was refreshing ... bottom line ... great match.
 .
Dembele.
 .
Impressive first half . So much so our Pub looked at the second half on replay. Did he drop off. Did he tire.Did his creativity disappear.
 .
An answer to all of the above. Decidedly .. No.
The Modric comparisons are as predictable as a GB gold medal. At this early stage Dembele has pace which Modric did not have. Dembele has goals in him
.
However from our perspective he does seem to have creativity and a willingness to take not one but more players on when pressing into that all important last third.
.
The jury is still out but the further it goes the more likely a more favourable verdict on the Belgian.
.
Sandro.
.
Teamed well with Dembele. More importantly he surged forward when appropriate. His clearing headers at the back are invaluable. Big bloke. Have a look next time at kick off. An imposing presence when stationary. Positively frightening when he launches into motion.
.
Still we do have a gripe about his immaturity regards unecessary challenges near goal. Best game this year and will now emerge as our Brazilian superstar.
.
The Rest ...
.
Did rather well. Bale, still developing a right foot. He scored with his left despite the best efforts of his right.Little front man continues to keep large Afrikan at bay.
 .
Yes  whilst hardly beating a Manchester at least we went into the week resting on a win. Certainly uplifted spirits ...
.
 At A Kent Pub.
 .
One swallow does not make a season but they did put an ordinary Championship side to the sword. If we overcome QPR then the bar gets considerably higher.
.
I'll have to think about United before making any rash statements.
.
 Cheers ... our pub lawyer has a birthday today .. so does Mama Cass Elliot ... he still eats sandwiches .... Greg Meyer.     coys.

Jimmy's Video Spot.
Defoe's recent strike against Italy . A little tribute to our current,  on song striker and an attempt to influence the stars for tonight.  Adebayor is hamstrung andwe might see Dempsey  at some point but Jermain is the main man at the moment. Odds on for at least a 45minute cameo against Lazio.

Just an interesting note on Lazio and its supporters who were involved in disgraceful racism at WHL on Thursday night. There are links between the Italian club and its supporters and the Camorra, the mainland Italian mafia. The Camorra has been moving into Northern Italy from its base in Naples, Sicily and the Lazio suburb of Rome has become a significant base for the group. In 2006, the Camorra tried to buy Lazio and use it to launder money. Lazio's fans are renowned for their support of extreme right-wing, neo-fascist political groups in Italy. Their fans also make alliances with other European clubs and their principal allies in England are Chelski fans. So no surprise there.
