Re: FA Cup 16/17

Really enjoyed the Chelsea/Spurs game. Some really good football on show and some excellent goals.

Eriksen's ball for Alli's goal was just as good as the strike from Matic for me.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

The Chronic have felt it necessary to clarify that this "leaked" kit is a fake https://pbs.twimg.com/media/C-LoNEqXUAATmrn.jpg If they didn't, you know someone would be outraged and write a letter complaining about this, that and the other. Shame really. I thought this was semi decent :lo...

Re: Rate your season

Home season - 8.5/10 - really encouraging to see a new style of football being played and how it has evolved over the season. Low point - QPR at home, but other than that, our home record is superb and that was top of my list of things which needed improvement from the last couple of seasons. High ...

Re: Rival Watch

Presumably Sky will show the Sheff Wed v Fulham game. You would've thought so, unless one of them totally balls up and the game ends up meaning nothing. Sky will then have to hope for a relegation game to mean something. Don't they normally offer a couple of final day games? Ours could well be of i...

We were truly terrible in that defeat to QPR. The Villa one hurts more because I still don't think we deserved to lose that.

Our FD at work is a Forest fan and before the Easter break, he was confident of staying up.

He isn't in today, so I haven't been able to ask him if he is as confident now :lol:

Re: SERIOUSLY STOP BOOING

Heard a few boos in Y20 at H/T. I think a few people were turning up expecting Rotherham to just roll over and let us win 4, 5, 6-0 because they have already been relegated. Any Reading fan who has been watching them for a number of years would know that playing against 'weaker' sides never really b...

Re: Burton Away

Would've loved to be IN for this one, but cricket commitments are starting again. With the midday kickoff, I will be able to listen to the game before playing cricket though.

Will be making my customary e/w bet on Lefty. Rose, Sergio, Fowler & Rory all have to be in contention. Need to think about a possible wild card choice though. Big news if DJ isn't fit to play after falling down the stairs. Massive if he isn't fit.. I'll probably be able to cash out for profit ...

Tempted to stick £50 on Southend not to finish top 6, at 10/3. Although despite Plymouth being 10 points cl...

Re: Forest Away

Nothing will beat the 3-4 thriller from a few years ago. Remember going freaking mental when Kebe put us 2-3 up and then gutted when we gave away another pen with a couple of minutes to go, but Churchy tapped in the winner for one of the best away wins I have ever seen 8) http://www.royals.org/matdo...

Re: Players to keep - Players to get rid of

like the straight talking from Stam - players to 'get rid of' - very subtle Couldn't disagree more. Extremely poor judgment by Stam when we're on the run-in to the play-offs. Disincentivising and demoralising to the players. Bearing in mind Stam is so big on utilising squad rotation god only knows ...
