Re: VAR

I think VAR could be great, as someone said, if there is agreement as to what types of decisions or incidents it will be used for and these are carefully laid out. What I fear will happen after watching Chelsea last night is utterkunts like Conte and players like Morata haranguing officials theatric...

Re: Which was worse

Sorry Spizz because I normally agree with you but the last 12 months of Ian's hoofball was worse than Ian porterfield's two years old mid table meh. People tolerate hoofball if the results come and there seems to be a plan, the right personnel and there is 100% commitment shown by limited battlers. ...

£32.... Bristol City are getting ideas above their station these days. Sleeping giant? More like comotosed old tramp smelling of piss asleep in the park with a Zeppelin of white lightning.

Re: Relegation

Sadly his gurning mug all over Sky after the game are one of the three certainties in life after death and taxes. If Cardiff win it will be smug the lads were great gurning, and if they lose it will be the ref was a disgrace, how he didn't see x, we need consistency gurning.

Re: BFTG -Bolton

I agree with Mid Sussex too re Parky as a potential future manager. Spot on, whether it is pure coincidence that the dark arts are alive and well in Bolton and Bradford....Pratley is well named. Even at two nil down I still thought we were the only team playing anything resembling professional footb...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Wolves Forum... I was sat with son and missus on the upper tier GU1 right in the corner by the Wolves fans at the front rail. Had some hassle from this one Reading fan. Others knew we were Wolves, but they but didn't seem to care one jot! This bloke though was acting intimidating and in a threateni...

Re: Confimred new owners of Reading Football Club

Could the Thai's be in co-hoots with the Chinese and plan on forming the Thames Valley Royals and selling both stadiums to groundshare with Didcot Town? With Anton and Samuelson behind the whole thing!! It all makes sense now! And they would probably have got way with it too if it wasn't for you pe...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Their fans normal response to a defeat is to suggest spunking a few more million of someone's money in the next transfer window. Not really worked in the last five years though has it.

Re: Millwall (a)

The original Den was a much more inhospitable, intimidating and edgy place to go and watch football. The ground, the approach and streets around it, the pubs, everything, not helped by the fearsome reputation of the locals. It was a rough arse place. Bunny makes a good point that if Millwall had to ...

Ridiculous post. This is one of the best away days in the league - great traditional 4 sided stadium too. Yeah it's so good it comes 75/92 in 4-4-2 magazine's worst match day experience :lol: where 92 is the worst (Coventry City btw). Having said that the stadium gets quite a good write up - "...

Re: Jaap's Radio Comments

Five + years of disconnect with faceless and anonymous foreign owners doesn't help the soul of a club either but that's 21 century football for you, unless you are lucky to still have someone with deep pockets and a genuine passion for your club involved, but they are nearly an extinct breed.

Re: Oxford - Reading

That 1989 game was all a bit of a pissed up blur after getting wasted at that pub by North Camp station beforehand. I think that was the same day that "Ratty" booted some Aldershot bloke off a scooter as he rode past giving it the biggun.
