I have absolutely no doubt that this is the case.

Maybe if and when Clement writes an autobiography we might find out what is really going on.

Re: The Non - League thread

We all do, but I guess the irony of you taking people to task about the standard of non league football, when you watch the rubbish served up by RFC, may have passed you by. I'm not taking anyone to task. I love non-league but I think there is a limit to the standard anyone can watch, especially gi...

Re: On this day

On this day in 2003 we beat Preston 3-2 at home. Nicky Forster scoring a late winner! http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_1/3187032.stm One of the great matches at the Madejski. Preston were flying and filled the away end with a noisy contingent. Surprised to see the attendance was onl...

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

Makes sense really. Frank, though, may be the only manager to ever resign after the club chairman logged on to a fans forum under a pseudonym to insult him. I wouldn't speak too soon...big Ron G might be making a Hobnob account as we speak! Who goes first John, Gourlay or Clement? Clement, without ...

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

So are Brentford sticking with Thomas Frank? Yeah probably a wise move. Will keep things more or less status quo and knows all of the players. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Makes sense really.

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 Mic...

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...
