Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

By the way, not heard the Bill Oddie chant for about 18 months - perhaps there's a connection between singing that regularly and getting results in the pitch. Club 1871 should give it a go, a whole 90 minutes to make up for it's absence. It was sung at Preston away. But then no surprise that you di...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I'm gonna say it, because it needs to be said: He was a crap player (and I've spoken to some of his former teammates who would agree wholeheartedly with that statement). He is also a pretty crap manager who has achieved nothing. I don't want him anywhere near the club I'm gonna say it, because it n...

Re: Clement

I'm not using psycho interchangeably with 'a bit crazy'. I'm using it as in 'has no regard for other's emotions or wellbeing'. Keane is a psycho, Klopp is eccentric. Not only that but he's a psycho who hasn't had a managerial job for seven years. I don't know why people persist in suggesting names ...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

I think we should only go for Parkinson should we be relegated. I'd stick with Clement for the time being but if things are drastically bad by January then we need to get someone in and give him the window to work with. As previously stated many times it should be Nigel Pearson. To suggest that Mick...

Absolutely not. He just was not the required level IMO, injury prone too. He had a great moment away at Charlton a couple of seasons ago but other than that did very little.

Re: Clement

I've been one of Meyler's biggest critics since he joined. Currently he is on international duty, probably in a hotel in Dublin somewhere, chilling post training on his bed playing PS4 and Tweeting between meals and sleeping. I've disregarded him as a Reading player now, along with McShane and Edwar...

Re: England - the future....

Just because you do not watch Reading sometimes does not mean you are not a fan. What if you live abroad or work on weekends or live far away? There's a difference between an exiled Reading FC supporter and someone who goes and "watches most Fulham games". Seriously wtf? M9, I haven't 'su...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

I think you are referring to Chris Mepham. Very highly regarded and not far away from a big move to a top level Championship side or lower end Premier League side. Already playing for Wales aged 20, top prospect. He's good but the player I was referring to was Ezri Konsa Who scored last night for t...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

Maybe a team bonding session will help get the team playing better together ? Lose any hangers on moping around unhappy about not being selected - If they're not going to feature in the first team squad just pay up their contract/get them out on loan somewhere. Maybe David Meyler could host a FIFA ...

Yes, fully agree and would love to watch this. Could you imagine Crawley v Port Vale on a Thursday nig...
