Re: Auf Wiedersehen £170m

Neither of our promotions in the past seem to have improved the club's financial position longer term, indeed, the second one seems to have nearly bankrupted it.

Unless you can go up and stay it, the club itself seems to make sod all, the players/agents etc more so

Re: BFTG - Wembley

Credit to the players for a season that exceeded all expectations but today was a game too far and our performance was absolutely abject. Pretty disappointing to get to Wembley and not really try to win the game, particularly as the opposition were nearly equally as poor. Surely one of the worst gam...

Current Form Vs Odds

Last twelve games Huddersfield W - 3 D - 3 L - 6 Reading W - 8 D - 1 L - 3 Yet Huddersfield are strong favourites to win this game. I appreciate they qualified for the play offs before us and stepped off the gas a bit but I saw nothing in the games against Sheffield Wednesday that suggested they can...

Re: How are you getting to Wembley?

or drive to the new Oxford Parkway station and get a train direct to Marylebone (passing through Wembley Station on the way) That's a possibility, thanks, i'll look in to that What about South West trains? Drive to somewhere like Andover? Before you dismiss it out of hand, just consider the Jubilee...

Re: Play Off Final Tickets

Presume they are selling in stages as when I tried to get a couple in Category 5 for a friend they were shown as none available, but after a chat I went back in 10 minutes later and there were a couple of blocks with Category 5 tickets so may be worth trying this if you're brave, (I can't believe we...

Re: Play off odds

Our home record is better than their away record so, to me, the odds seem daft

It's only superstition that's keeping me from backing Reading

Re: Play off Away Leg

I would be surprised if we didn't have more than 2,000 people who have been season tickets holders since the points scheme started running. Maybe they know circa 50% don't go to any away game and pitch it accordingly
