Re: Madjeski and Howe

LOL at supporting Reading when we were in the prem would be deemed as glory hunting - jumpin on the band wagon more fitting. I see the sentiment though. But i feel its how a a lot of clubs are being run now, unless you have a football fan owner who just enjoys the game. Our recent investors probabl...

Re: Madjeski and Howe

The club has died, at the request of the new breed of fan. "Where's the money gone?" "McDermott out" "You should have paid through the nose for journeyman shite when we were in the premier league" The logic of sacking McDermott (the first time) was absolutely non existe...

That'll be because Howe knows how this football club should be run, and the ways which have brought us success.
And Gourlay thinks the answer is to throw money at the problem.

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

There is only one logical answer. Neil Warnock. Track record of getting unfancied teams promoted, galvanises struggling squads, plays a more direct style that our supporters seem to want and has worked wonders at Cardiff. I know he is a controversial and polorising figure but I think if he's the ma...

Re: CONFIMRED - Sean Morrison signs for Cardiff

This is another master stroke by Hammond. How much money has this bloke made, over and above the valuations of our players in the last 10 years? I liked the lad...but 3-4million quid for a defender who can't keep a constant 90 mins of concentration? That's stunning business.... I hope they've stipul...

Re: Ipswich prediction thread

Reading 4-0 Ipswich

Just in time for the club to say we're strong enough to mount a challenge and to ignore obvious weaknesses....

Expect to lose the following 10 games and be bottom by Xmas.

Re: Adkins back to Southampton ?

I didn't/don't like Adkins. But, unsteadying the ship further at this point, is suicide - the business side is screwed, that much is clear - we need stability in the management in order to stop us from disappearing into Pompeyland. As others have said - be careful what you wish for - Adkins IS a bel...

Re: If we get there will you go?

The law of averages dictates that if we get to the final, it's got to be our turn to win it. Winning at Wembley would be incredible.

Re: Reading FC games on Valentine's Day

I was at the Swindon game. I completely forgot about this, so thanks for the reminder, but I've wanted to see the halftime analysis for ages, to see if my inflatable sheep got a good Valentines day ITV airing, as I threw it up towards the ITV box at the back of the terrace. I doubt it did, but stil...

Re: Red Card-Yes or No?

Sciag is right to point out the error, although my points still stand that a tackle doesn't have to be 2 footed to be a red card, nor does getting a slight touch on the ball mean anything goes. In this case 'reckless' does describe the tackle, it wasn't excessive force, it was poorly judged and sli...

Re: Red Card-Yes or No?

Not even close to a red - on first glance or replays for me. Took the ball, trailing leg tucked under his arse, not high, not off the ground, no studs, a yellow should have been produced for slightly over-zealous force - nothing more. Don Goodman immediately said it was a terrible tackle, before cha...
