Certainly egg on Gareth's face for not playing him from the start. Then we really would have had a better chance.

If you rate DGL in front of Tuncay, you surely haven't a clue about Football management.

Thats the first question gareth need to be asked and justify otherwise he has hammered a nail in his own coffin. I was fkin devastated when I found out the korean was in

because he doesnt have the power of hindsight?

Perhaps playing DGL was an attempt to put Reading in a false sense of security. Haha

Southgate has no idea about tactics or man management. This season is as good as over.

Don't type shyte! Even our lass would have picked Tuncay over DGL.

Brings the lad on at the end to play against tired defenders.

Gets a goal and his confidence goes through the roof.

Good management. If we'd taken our chances we'd have won easily.

Don't make out it was a clever tactical sustitution. He only took Gook off when he got injured!

How low must tuncay feel when DGL is starting instead of him, they have told DGL he can go in january so why start him ?
When you have a turkish international in the squad bursting for a game ? poor management i say.

re: Why dind't he start with Tuncay??????

I guess because he wanted to play 4-4-2 and Tuncay isn't a striker.

Still a shocking decision.

I was worried when I saw LDG in the starting line up but he actually was better than expected.

He showed really good awareness to set up arguably our best chance (apart from the goal) when Johnson hit the post and worked pretty hard.

Don't get me wrong, he's not a long term solution but was a lot better than I feared.

Tuncay played on the wing when he came on so it's cleared he's not seen as a striker.

re: Why dind't he start with Tuncay??????

Fair do's
but i would rather have o'neil on the right wing, he is more of a midfielder if you know what i mean ?
tuncay is more of a right sided striker ! would probably work well 3 upfront wen everyone fit ?

My brother lived in Turkey and married a Turkish girl who loves Tuncay. They say his best position by miles is playing just behind the main striker in an advanced midfield position.

mfc_4eva Posted on 1/12 21:37
re: Why dind't he start with Tuncay??????

When you see his goals from turkey etc and Fenerbache they are mostly from that position running at people and shooting etc. which is a position i think we should try him because he is a good player in my eyes.

Its shocking that you refer to Dong Gook Lee as a striker.

jimmyace Posted on 1/12 22:23
re: Why dind't he start with Tuncay??????

why does nobody understand that tuncay plays off a striker or as a winger so if the only striker we have who is aliedere also does that then we have a problem as we dont play a striker for them to play off, so it was aliedere that was played over ldg, lee just did the job or at least tried to of a center forward
