Re: Hammond vs Tevreden

RE: transfers - Hammond seemed reluctant to sign foreign players (understandable given past experiences tbh) and I think that held us back a little bit in his final years. We weren't able to compete in the domestic market with some of the ridiculous transfer fees. You can't judge them on transfers a...

Who was the last Reading FC manager to get a contract extension? Was it Coppell?

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

Hoffenheim fans called him the "Struggle Pig". At first I had no idea what that meant. It makes more sense now. Lots of hard work, but little end product.

Re: AAH to KSA?

AAH - good shot stopper but poor distribution
Williams - hard worker, good defensively but average passing and slightly lacking end product

Both fantastic Championship players, but their weaknesses mean they aren't the best fit for Stam's style of play

Re: New pitch

Our pitch is partly synthetic. I believe "re-laying" the pitch in previous years has involved ripping up the real grass and just implanting new synthetic fibres whereas this time we're digging the whole system up and putting in a completely different (newer) one

Re: Jaap Stam to Leicester?

Sacking the world manager of the year who won the PL 8 months ago

To replace him with somebody who has managed about 30 professional games in total?

Nah, don't think so

If the game had been abandoned when it should have been in the first half, would we still have had to pay for another ticket?

Terrible decision making by the ref. If we didn't score from the penalty there would have been a meltdown about the disallowed goal

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

They came in, sold the land surrounding the stadium (worth £millions) to "RFC PLOT 1, 2, 3 LTD" (which they own) for a nominal fee and then sold the club on minus the land. They'll probably now sell the land on for a tidy profit (with PP). We've essentially been asset stripped.

Re: BFTG - Arsenal (a)

To think some people pay 8-10x what I pay for a ST at the Emirates to sit in a library for 90 minutes and then queue for over an hour to get the tube home. Madness. The game was pretty shit. Players lacked belief, gave the Arsenal team too much respect, was kinda like they turned up with the mindset...
