Re: Weekend Football

Can't stop thinking about Aldershot v Chesterfield. I might have to knock Pride Park on the head and go down to watch it I'm that excited!

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

How big an impact does extra time have, do we think? A lot of the time when you think a team is going to be leggy it actually works in their favour because they have the momentum and would have trained anyway, albeit not quite to that intensity.

I am still confident of a draw.

Re: On this day

Loads of games on 17th of January over the years. The highlight has to be a 2-0 win at the Co*nty Ground, though. Swindle, remarkably, managing to be worse that one of the worst Reading teams in a generation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tMIAd2ZLfc (goals at 1:10 and 2:15) Is there a finer sigh...

Perhaps with the Irish link he could go to Nottingham Forest. A swap deal for Matty Cash would be nice.

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

Slightly odd that It would appear both Karanka and WAgner instigated their own departures, although for quitedifferent reasons. Neither appear to have other jobs lined up, not often a manager just quits like that. It's just for face-saving purposes. They are paid off handsomely to make it look like...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

All I see here is an out of sorts Derby County. We have a good record up there and are coming off the back of a good win and a general feel-good factor.

A draw is the least I will accept from this game.

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

Yeah I do think Wagner seems to have something about him. Some managers benefit from big spending or just being at a club at the rigt time, I don't think you can say that about him and he took a small time club up to the PL against all odds. Can't really be a fluke imo File under Marco Silva as a s...

Re: The generic transfer thread

Alan Judge set to sign for Ipswich. Was really highly rated a few seasons ago. Never really recovered after breaking his leg against... Ipswich. I felt he deserved the high ratings that season Brentford got to the playoffs. Even still, I think Ipswich's problems lie with an out and out goalscorer m...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Don't tell them that. They still believe they are the epitome of football, the creme de la creme and probably that football was invented by some chap called Keith in his Leeds garage after getting jiggy with the 1800's version of Claudia Schiffer Poor run of form for Bournemouth.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

A lot of prickly Forest fans this weekend blaming the ref. It's easy to say as a Reading fan but I don't know how they can complain with both reds (Murphy could even have gone for his wild lunge too). Ref was shocking today. So inconsistent. Punished fouls by Forest by let similar ones off for Readi...
