Re: BFTG Forest Home

Many thanks to all contributors. Have to admit to being deadly nervous throughout the game, especially after our first goal! But seems we played with a degree of confidence and freedom that has been lacking for many months. Dare I dream of a great escape? Surely if we can beat Bolton away and then b...

Re: JOSE GOMES' BARMY ARMY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like him. His comments about trimming the squad are bang on and he's started using Aluko and Swift better than Clement did. That's as much as I'll say if you're looking for positives. Clement was an appalling manager. The players hated him, apparently, and his stats are beyond shit. As in worst R...

Clear out started

Apologies if already a thread but couldn't find it. Sims loan deal cancelled and now back at Southampton. Edwards contract cancelled by mutual consent and now on his way to Shrewsbury on a free, (so his £1,000,000 transfer fee we paid worked out at £336/minute on the pitch ignoring salary, c/w Pelle...

Re: Rumour- Ovie Ejaria

Found the Scottish Premier League too physical. Hmmm! I read it that he was simply unsettled in Scotland. Born London I believe, so may feel happier down south? TBF not sure Glasgow is any more of a shit pit than Liverpool. (Yes, I have been to both cities before I am accused of racism or something...

Re: Tiago llori

Never really settled. Perhaps he'd be happier in Portugal. I hope his injury is ok. Do you realise that Ilori's dad is English, he was born in London and only moved to Portugal when he was 7? He's still got a London accent. I like Ilori but he's he's not a player we can't afford to lose and as othe...

Re: BFTG United (A)

Many thanks for these. A creditable 0-2 defeat, (is such a thing possible?!). So they can turn it on in front of 74000 at OT in the FAC, please now do the same in a dire relegation match somewhere up North on a cold and wet Tuesday night!! Well done all.

Re: BBC Radio Berks

If sandman didn't like the type of football Swansea played to put us to the sword in the PO Final, he's not really worth listening to IMO. I don't know how they played on NYD, but they were great at Wembley and I'd kill for us to play like that. Your memory is playing tricks. SCFC had 4 shots on ta...

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

Has now left the building and joined PEC Zwolle permanently. Free transfer as far as I’m aware. "Undisclosed" on BBC site, which of course can mean a free, which I think quite probable as the OS tends to say "Undisclosed" but says nothing this time round. 600k down the pan. Than...

Re: Are we really going down this season

Had it on good authority (albeit 2nd hand) that 7 players have been released this morning. Sorry I have no names, merely that number. Probably pretty easy to make an educated guess. I would have thought there would have been more than that, but maybe more will follow as the window develops? https:/...

Re: Are we really going down this season

Any player that is told he has no future at RFC may well agree to terminate his contract for less than he would get if he remained here. If he is "unattached" at the end of the transfer window, he will still be able to sign for another league club after it shuts. If he is still under cont...

Ignoring his not inconsiderable wages, hazard a guess at how much this numpty cost RFC per minute he was on the pitch!











At a reported cost of 600k, each of his 1759 first team minutes cost RFC £341.10.

Re: Are we really going down this season

Given our striking woes I find it hard to understand why Novakovic hasn't been recalled. Maybe his season-long loan deal had no recall provision? Clearly with the likes of Southwood, Legg, Richards, Osho, McIntyre, Holmes, Kelly (?), Rinomhata, Loader, Novakovic we have a potentially decent spine un...

Very overrated keeper - had just as many bad games as good and let too many soft goals in on near post.

Thread should be renamed to Massacre Watch. Is there a bookie providing odds on ManURe scoring 10 or more? Would have a Judas bet on THAT for sure!
