Re: Financial Fair Play

cos they're mugs? More to do with the fact that the buyer and seller is the same person so if they want £7 milli9n to move from one pocket to the other they don’t have to bargain too hard with themselves..... Surely there’s got to be some rules about that though. Otherwise they could just buy him f...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Am I really 3 pages in and not a single discussion of our frankly stunning free kick routine? That was a thing of beauty. Yeah good shout. Was funny because coincidentally enough as they set up I genuinely actually thought to myself “it’s a shame we’re just going to put it into the box I don’t know...

Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

I remember you giving out balls to me for capitalising Van Den Berg yet you continually misspell Novakovich. Tut Tut Ian. You know, I was pretty much getting it right all the time and then started doubting myself when I saw someone else at a t and just started copying them. I should have greater fa...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

I think that comes with the territory with Nelson Everyone knows he is a selfish striker. When and if he scores 20 in a season no one will care. Yeah that’s it, but it just if. Because anything like yesterday and he just looks a bit of a dick. That being said there was only really one occasion wher...

Re: Rival Watch

Zip Of course if we win on Monday and Rotherham don’t win we are safe 8)


With the goal difference if Rotherham lose we need a point and we’re basically safe.

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Well I don't remember Martinez making many saves, certainly not any "decent" saves and a save that a goalkeeper championship shouldn't be making. He's then in no man's land for the goal. A talented goalkeeper yes, but also an overrated one It’s not just the saves though. Those two deadly ...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

Strange game really, didn't think we played well at all, yet there were never really any moments I was worried that we'd lose. There were some real basics missing out there today, the retaining of possession was poor, we weren't winning second balls until the last 10 minutes, there was a real lack ...

Re: BFTG - Bristol City

How many opportunities did Oli squander?! Struggling to think of many worse substitute appearances. He desperately needs a goal. Anyway, a really good point away at a good team. You can see why they’re successful, the amount of balls they lumped into the box was mental and for the most part we defen...

Re: Which of the loanees would you prioritise?

If we could have equal chance of signing them all.

Martinez
Mizaga
Baker
Oli
Ejaria

Not to take Ejaria for granted, to be honest I don't remember seeing a set of such influential good loanees. It's quite staggering considering our less than illustrious recent history with loanees.

Old Man Andrews

An old building being ravaged by an uncontrollable fire is a pretty good metaphor for Reading tbf.

you can always rely on him to do a job, like he did against Norwich and Brentford Yeah spot on. I'll just casually ignore the countless times we've conceded goals from the right side where he was too weak in the challenge, was no where near stopping a cross or any other combination of utterly subst...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

I actually think Gunter has been pretty consistent during his time here. Yes occasionally he has had quite a decent game, and on occasion he has been truly uncompromisingly shocking, but by and large, more often than not, week in week out he’s just pretty shit.

Re: Bristol City (A) Friday 19th April 2019 (12pm)

Sorry to say guys it's going to have to be an a much earlier start than first thought! Was fully expecting the relatively short journey to Bristol but according to the Reading site, the game will now be held in Norwich. :lol:

Re: The League of 4

The bookies have somewhat belatedly appreciated Wigan are in trouble. They are now 13/2 to go down. We are now 13/1 8) Rotherham still strong favourites to drop but Wigan have really been in freefall this year. Their relegation odds remain very generous. Might just put £100 on us to go down just in...
