Re: Relegation Watch

Reading fans are what they are. No one is going to change the demographic of the area The best way for the club to fill the stadium is to attract families etc and plan longer term No real point moaning about it This is the crux of it, and while I hate the fact, we’re not going to get a huge vocal f...

Re: Rival Watch

Safe to say the Bolton fans are not happy with Jem :D https://twitter.com/JemKaracan6/status/987748693897109504 Can’t say I blame them... Alfie and Jem post about their memories at Reading a heck of a lot, if one of ours was to do that during a relegation battle I’d be pretty miffed. :lol: At least...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

Stam would have lost all those games. Less red cards only because the players would give less of a shit under Stam than they seem to now. Would he? I know his entire season was a failure but 2 wins and a draw? He could have GOTTEN that. It's speculative nonsense which ever way you want to claim it,...

Re: BFTG Wednesday (a)

I got far too smashed last night and woke up pretty late so couldn’t go. I don’t feel that bad about spending the £30 odd on the ticket now. I had a great afternoon.

Re: Building for next season

Can we have Adrian Popa back please?! Agreed,always thought he got shunned by Stam,needs a bit more time to work in the team but i always thought he was a great option Attitude problems apparently Doubt this helps either.

Re: Relegation Watch

I was in the school year as the Cardiff keeper so it would be cool for him to get into the Premier League, but oxf*rd Warnock. The half pinoy lad? That’s pretty cool. I remember him at Walsall and wasn’t overly enthralled but certainly thought he’d have enough to make the jump to the championship. ...

Re: Relegation Watch

I went to uni in Cardiff and have a huge soft spot for the city. I am pretty indifferent to the football club though, however despite Warnock, I'd rather see them go up at the expense of Fulham for several reasons.

Re: Building for next season

Ftr I’d take Long back in a heart beat, will clearly score more at this level but he offers a lot more than just that, will stretch the defence and gives us pace up front, more so than Bod.

Agree wholeheartedly on HRK, terrible footballer.

Re: Sheffield Wednesday v Reading - Official Predictions Thread

How is this decided? If it just the prediction furthest from the actual result? Well if Wednesday win, then the biggest Reading-win-prediciton would be the worst prediction and vice-versa if it's a draw, then it's the biggest win posted (could be 3-0 to Wednesday AND 3-0 to Reading (for example) GD...

Thing with Wieser is that, granted he's a Leichtensteiner so hardly from a country with any footballing pedigree and he was a completely bizarre signing but he has played for Basel and Hoffenheim and has made a reasonable number of appearances in the Swiss top flight. He can't be completely useless...

Re: Building for next season

I think a lot of our injury woes have to be pinned firmly on Stam and his backroom staff, we were hardly injury free last season either. the last 2 seasons, during Stam's tenure has to be one of, if not the worst spells we've had with injuries. Whether it's poor conditioning or poor training I don'...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by c'mon URZ

Sutekh, thanks for that. Its a pity we couldn't beat Sunderland at home, because this next one, at Wed, could be a tough game, I think. As stated, Wed have won 4 of 6. Their last 6 games read: Won at Hull last week Lost at QPR Lost 1-0 to Fulham Won 3-1 at Sunderland They beat Preston 4-1 Won at Le...

Re: Relegation Watch

We're also notoriously shit at Hillsborough in recent times, though last year's game was arguably my favorite moment of the season. We took a non stop battering at the end before breaking down the other end and Popa ran it into an open net, absolute scenes.

Have you noticed how there's been almost no piss-taking from opposition fans over this? Usually if we do something utterly tinpot, the opposition fans are all over it like a fly on shit.

The ‘passionate support’ was there when we were winning....of course We are not unique...success = bigger voiciforous fan bases Like it needed saying :roll: Was it?
