Re: Madjeski and Howe

LOL at supporting Reading when we were in the prem would be deemed as glory hunting - jumpin on the band wagon more fitting. I see the sentiment though. But i feel its how a a lot of clubs are being run now, unless you have a football fan owner who just enjoys the game. Our recent investors probabl...

Re: Low away attendances

Was it as little as that??? I was there and it seemed like more to me. Would estimate 200-ish. It might not have been that match... definitely remember taking less than 100 to a match around that time We took less than a hundred to Huddersfield that season iirc. Naaa think it was 183. In the Africa...

Pat on the back for you sir.

I think we'll field the same side as we did vs. Stevenage. I never want us to lose a game ever, but if we lose this then I'll be less bothered.

Re: In or Out? New poll.

that is true. I do think at some point Gourlay will have to say enough is enough though It begs the question how bad will it have to be before that happens? I personally think there is a far greater chance of Stam walking than Gourlay pulling the trigger. The longer Stam stays the more damage is do...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

Isn’t the Norwich manager looking down the barrel? Hughton could go back there? I think all the while we’ve got this lot upstairs we’d end up with someone who wants to play this system, so an unknown from Europe a la Sheff Weds. That’s why I’m not ready to see Stam leave yet. If we can stay up then ...

Rumour - Hogan Ephraim

Looking for a new club could be a cheap option up top for us as a free agent. I know a lot of Championship clubs are looking at him, especially Brentford with him being a London boy.

Could be worth a pint - I mean punt?

Can’t see what we have over Sunderland. Personally I don’t think he’d go to us if he doesn’t want to join Sunderland... We may be having a bad season, Sunderland are an absolute basketcase of a club.

Re: RUMOUR: Jose Artiles

If he can also play left back, I can understand that we could sign him to cover that position. Perhaps Beerens is on the move, as he has not signed an extension to his contract like Van der Berg, and will be out of contract this June. Perhaps... Or perhaps this is a load of bollocks as there's no s...
