Re: 18/19 End of Season Awards

I think GOTS can be split into the actually strike itself but also the context of the game. For example, Ejaria’s goal vs Rotherham was a massive goal in the context of things, as well as being a really nice team move. Same with rino at Norwich. In the context of things, Loader’s goal against Boro ...

if Arsenal win the Europa and City get banned do United end up in the CLol


If City get a ban it won't be for next season.

Either/both.

Re: The Forest is Green!

FGR are a poor side. Total failure to have a go and take the game to Tranmere. Tranmere far better over the two legs. At least Newport will give Tranmere more of a game. You obviously were not watching the game. Two stupid red cards lost the game over two legs plus a blatent penalty denied. We shou...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Does whatever the definition of a ‘tackle’ actually define what defending involves ? James Harper used to,talk about this when people,said he couldn’t tackle. He said on the one hand you had Sidwell charging in and ‘tackling’ , getting lots of praise for diving in, knocking people over etc. Harps p...

Re: McShane leaves

This won’t be a popular view but good riddance. McShane has periodically annoyed me over the years. From the very first time I saw him carelessly lunge into a challenge against Ipswich at home, to a colossal lack of effort at Preston away, him and Gunter passing the ball to each other 20 times in o...

As a Dolan ender, the change has been marked.
Never used to hear a peep out of the East Stand (probs acoustics), but now there is some decent atmosphere being gener8d in the South it's even encouraging noise at the other end.

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

My ST was £325 last season. I looked online at ST prices for a lot of lower division clubs and could not find a single one as low as my ST price and that of my son. The club don’t get much credit for the pricing structure which is brilliant value. EDIT I actually paid £305 for my renewal and £59 fo...

I was wondering how long it would take before someone piped up about him. Forget him - he will never, ever play for Reading again because he isn't good enough to do so. Yet again your lack of football knowledge is astounding. Nova is miles better then LOLoader. I think cutting our ties with Loader ...
