Re: Will going down be a bad thing? poll added.

list all the clubs for the last twenty years or so (since football began in '92) and how they have fared following relegation. If it's positive then cool but i have a feeling it's overwhelmingly negative Just can't see it being a good thing - going down is absolutely no guarantee that it will be an...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Yeah but you're going further than that ... you're being overly negative. Why not support or at least tolerate this initiative? I'd be very happy if it works - so far it hasn't ... but if it does surely all of us will benefit from it?

Re: Reading FC international player quiz

Only got 1 - thought all our players were English and am now returning my ST in protest at letting all these foreigners into our country! We need to regain control of our football club! Take back control!

Re: Clement In/Out...latest poll

I'm still 'In' - not good for the club to constantly sack managers so we should stick with him for now. But disagree with those who think that it is not partially his fault - a different manager could definitely be doing a lot better with this squad than he is. Let's hope he can learn from his mista...

Re: BFTG - Preston

I've not been able to go to matches for a while so haven't seen Reading play for a while but just curious if everyone agrees that Aluko is a waste of space or are there those who disagree but keep quiet on here? I just find it strange that everyone is so negative about him yet the manager obviously ...

It's because we never signed the players we really needed and wasted money on signing terrible players like Aluko ... !

Re: Gourlay

I think the injury theory is a bit of a myth ... other clubs have horendous injury lists and it's not down to any particular reason, just bad luck. I really don't think that in this day and age, it's anything other than that. So asking the question might make you look like a bit of a conspiracy theo...

Re: Gourlay

I actually think the signings this transfer window have been reasonable given rather limited resources .... Clement clearly wasn't given a large war chest and has had to quite a bit of wheeling and dealing to get in players to fill the gaps. And can't really blame him for not getting rid of dross - ...

Re: Summer Transfers

Why did we sign Sam Walker when we have Jaakkola as back up already and several talented youth goalkeepers Because Gourlay shares the same agent as Walker and has clearly struck up a deal to pocket some of the signing on the fee. The same can be said for the majority of players we have signed under...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

The whining on this thread from those not in favour is astonishing. There is so much passion and relentless effort being put into the complaining, you must be so angry about this. Which seems odd given that it's just a few people sitting somewhere else in a football ground to where you sit, which w...

Re: Martin Ødegaard

Did well at Heerenveen last year. My concern is he would bring some baggage and Madrid are apparently demanding he would have to play if available. Fine if he performs but if he isn't and blocks the path for others, could be terrible for morale. Let’s see, if he plays wide right who would he be “bl...
