Re: Anyone Nervous?

I'm nervous! I dont get the relaxed attitiude. 10 years ago we were sent down by Fulham winning 3 in a row and winning away for the first time in a year. I think we can assume we will lose both our games (pretty likely given our Sat 3pm home record and Cardiff's form). I know Ipswich are rudderless...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

With regards to Sunderland, their away form is Ok at the mo, 1 defeat in 5 - it is their home form that has relegated them again. In comparison, Ipswich have lost 4 on the bounce away. Your point about Sunderland is of course true - they are decent away and were of course fighting for their lives, ...

Re: Anyone Nervous?

For Bolton to go past us they need to turn round a run of 1pt from 18 to pick up at least 4 (assuming we get 0). For Burton to go past us they will need to have been on a run of 4 straight wins. My point was that Bolton play Burton! So unless we all draw (yes please but odds against), either Bolton...

Re: Nicky Hammond Leaves WBA

He managed to get Derby to pay £3 million for Nick Blackman. The bloke is a hero. £4m for Sean Morrison too Yep the guy knows how to polish a turd for sure. I think we could do with thatr this summer. Joey Van Den Berg to Ajax for £5million! It would be our only hope of getting our money back on Al...

Re: Oxford - Reading

I can see us playing Oxford quite soon. They are quite a well supported club and have bigger plans. Let's just hope they get a 4th stand by that time so we can take a good load up there. We will be back playing them within a year or two. For me they are the biggest rivals - but that is from growing...

Re: #TDD #Bushwatch

Where did the name come from? He watches from a bush m8 Does he really m8? Or was that the Sissoko pictures, which weren't from him? Actually for the record the concept pre-dates JSK. It comes from our former player Andy Bernal. It was the stuff of Reading legend that he was a voyeur and used to wa...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

PL clubs can only select 17 foreign-grown players in their 25 man squad and Chelsea only have 3 home grown players (Moses, Fabregas, Cahill) whereas last year they also had Terry, Begovic and Chalobah. Therefore I think they need Baker to hang around to literally make up the numbers - until they sig...

Re: RUMOUR - Nelson Oliveira

Judging by his reaction on Saturday after scoring, he's clearly not happy starting on the bench. I read it more in the context of the rumours - a "See, that's why you were wrong about me" to Farke, who clearly thought he could live without him in the squad. Tough one now for them, pretty ...

Re: Sunderland Crap

What I want to know is that if watching your team away at Reading is so horrible, why do we constantly get away fans in record numbers?! It is fans from dying parts of the UK that are forced to work in the economic hub that is the Thames Valley and resent the locals. Or its fans complaining about so...

Re: RUMOUR: Gunter to Boro

If I remember correctly it he was out of contract a couple of years ago and was rumoured to have taken a pay cut to stay. As he could have left for free, a low release clause would seem fair enough. It is easy to imagine that Boro might be willing to offer him much higher wages, given his internatio...

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

fair play to him. He spent 6 months working hard to get himself into the PL either via promotion or a move and it has paid off. Shame he didn't play anywhere near that level for the 3.5 years before that. +1. Hal Robson Kanu syndrome... If he did stay he would be a shadow of the committed focussed ...

Re: Team for Fulham (h)

I think we should bring Beerens and McCleary in if we can. This is the team that got us to 3rd with an incredible home record and I think we should just go for it. Fulham may have a great away record but I think they're vulnerable at the back. I'm not convinced we can repeat the defensive performanc...

Re: Random Inflatables

So I'm assuming Burton will be random inflatables as usual next week being the last away game. Interesting to note that Barnet have banned Grimsby fans from bringing inflatables (so they've hired a mariarchi band instead :lol: ) but on the BBC article below, they've used an (uncredited) pic of our ...

Re: Back from the game - Norwich

He was crucial in our box in the air repelling corners, free kicks, and even the occasional off the line blockage. That is t...
