    I should have been more specific and included those in the Bundesliga. I meant none who gravitated or made it in La Liga or Serie A.

    Holden said that Miazga having a Polish Passport was a key element of their interest.

    DNP in a 1-1 draw. Interesting scoring timeline, 0-0 through 95', Forest scores the 'game-winner' at 90+6', only to concede an own goal at 90+7'.

    Reading are rolling, up to 15th, having won 4 of 5 (and drawing the last one), just six points from a spot in the promotion playoff. There's still a long way to go, and a lot of teams to pass on the way to the top.

    Tight turnaround coming up:

    Today @ Millwall (8th)

    Wed @ Forest (5th) {Help yourselves, and help a friend in Ream}

    Sat v Cardiff City (FA Cup, 4th Round)

    Tue 1/28 v Bristol (9th)

    Fri 1/31 @ Cardiff City (12th)

    Then the schedule seems to open up a bit, with just an occasional midweek game, though allowance has to be made for advancement in the FA Cup.

    In any event, Miazga needs to play - and play well - at every opportunity over the next two weeks, or Winter may last until May (for his fans, if not for him).

    They lost hard to Millwall today, so the myth that they're doing better since benching Miazga got undone.

    Yes, DNP in a 2-0 defeat, a satisfying result. Let's hope for a start on Wednesday.

    This is so weird. He gets benched but then get inserted back into the lineup as captain.

    Remind me of some of the crazy girls I dated way back when.

    Probably consolation for benching him

    And from the back of the pinto they hears: "Oh Captain, my Captain..." Did you go to the co-ed version of the Dead Poets society?

    Moore not in the squad, so they stuck it in the closest locker.

    No prep for me - public school all the way through until grad school.

    True, but it's also a gesture of trust/ respect from the coach. He's basically saying, "I'm using a system that doesn't quite suit your game in the league but you're a good player, and a good character. As well as taking the opportunity to put pressure on the starting CBs, I know you'll lead this lot today."

    It's a bit like Sasha Kljestan in his last season at Anderlecht: he was best in a midfield 5, but the new coach vastly preferred 4-4-2. Sasha still got PT, just a lot less with few starts, but it was clear that there was no criticism of his abilities or attitude. They gave him a very nice send-off in the centre circle when his move to NYRB was confirmed.

    He just got back in 11 too. Ugh. Yedlin was more than shaken up also in Newcastle game being played simultaneously. Ugh. We need FULL strength, all hands on deck this year. Miazga is one of our best options in the back.
