Re: Food vans

I noticed the queuing issue last night - not sure what's going on there. Had to go to the pulled pork van for my £2.40 bottle of water. Pork baguette 7 quid FYI I always thought a jacket potato van might do a good business up there. The healthier, middle-class option, if you will. Anyone willing to ...

Re: Food vans

Re: Weekend Football

If you ever wanted an easy fixture for the first game of the season it has to be West Ham without Antonio, Lanzini and Carroll. Wait for the media to cream themselves over 2nd season Mourinho. BTW did I hear correctly in commentary that he is the first manager in history to spend £1 billion on play...

Kermorgant probably until October

Harriott and McCleary are probably September returns

The others are hopefully all this August.

Thank you Sutekh.

Hopefully we go into the Christmas period with a full compliment then. Could be good timing

Just seems all mysterious and a bit pissed off.

I have to agree with this. Do you think he'll be booed on his return to the Madejski this season?

Re: Jack Colback

Would be a superb signing, I think he'd slot in perfectly into our set up.

Now I've said that he'll probably go to Villa. Or Boro? (north east)
