Re: Gourlay

Totally appreciate the points made by others. Was it ever going to be a Churchillian speech? Clearly not. In terms of the owners, I get all that. However, rather than trotting out what I feel for many was a well rehearsed party political broadcast, that Tellor should have challenged a lot more than ...

Re: Gourlay

Listened to the first few words and to put it mildly, what a waste of space. How on earth is this bloke drawing a wage from our club? After his infamous comment about Stam, this character should join the local comedy circuit. How to say a lot, without actually saying anything. Joker :evil:

Re: Today

"Couldn't pass a wet sh*t after a dodgy curry" :lol: Great summary bud. And now it's all down to waiting on other results next weekend. Can't believe it's come down to this. Still, as they say in a certain ad, 'we have now moved on to dilly dilly time' :roll:

Re: Stam Gone

So Johnny Mad describes Stam as a 'sweet sweet man' who still had the players onside. As he quite rightly points out though, it's a results based business. That's right John, and we certainly didn't need a confectioner in charge of the lads :)

What a legend Robin was. Regardless of whoever we were playing, entertainment was always on the menu. The mere mention of his name, takes me to a space when we were Reading.....through and through. How times change.

Amazingly, off this w/end. So up the local 'rub a dub' it is then, complete with tin hat, ready for the post match flak.

Re: Boro v Reading Prediction Thread

Prediction aside, whenever we play this crowd, always takes me back to Elm Park days when Boro' scored after roughly 10/11 mins and three quarters of the away end started jumping up and down like mad 'uns. The rest of us just stood there, with Kirbs (RIP) amongst the ranks. The look on the Boro' boy...
