Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins last game

I'm not sure if any of you are familiar with the parody Twitter account @Y26Ultras, but they're currently being investigated by West Midlands and Thames Valley Police because of their tweets over the last few days, and all Reading fans attending tonight's game will be fully searched as a result :lol...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Some basic rushed numbers that are probably completely wrong because it's Monday morning, but whatever 2,175 (half the south stand capacity) x £20 we charge for away tickets = £43,500 per game x 23 home games = £1,000,500 lost over the course of the season IF every away team sell out the South Stan...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

i.e Aluko's wages for 2 weeks. It's not an inconsequential amount but it isn't make or break and if successful could attract additional home fans. Not to mention the effect a full away stand has on results on the pitch - if any impact whatsoever, the difference could be millions. I would agree with...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

That is incredible. Not to mention the programmes, food and beer every match aswell. The likes of Millwall and Leeds would easily spend £20 per head on just beer and pies alone. From memory I don't recall that many teams filling the entire South Stand - maybe more like 6 o 7? The below article sugg...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

There's no decision to make, it was made months ago. The club has sold season tickets there. They're committed for the season. Personally I think that’s a mistake. I would have thought the club should have been more flexible and suggested a three month trial at the start of this season with a view ...

Logging in after the match to see Double D has reverted to type on the match threads, and is acting like the prize helmet we all know Anyway, good win - backs to the wall stuff and rode our luck.

No not at all. Everything I have said is a fact. It tends to be that when people disagree with you because purely because they think they will curry favour with other board members they will just label someone as "stupid" or claim they don't know what they are talking about. Sadly for the...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (h) sponsored by Terry Hurlock

I don’t know. Maybe there will be goals. Maybe Reading will play really well but lose heroically. Maybe they’ll be pants and lose. Unheroically. Maybe a unicorn will land of the pitch. Maybe Dave Edwards is still alive. Who knows? All bets are off. Storm clouds, dark omens, dire predictions; all sw...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

They aren't facts OMA, you are making observations based on limited knowledge and conjecture, dressing them up as facts, and making absolute statements.

In other words, stop being a massive jessie.

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

That's a whole load of assumption. I'm not really sure how you can be so categorical about a bunch of stuff you have absolutely no inside knowledge on, but then you often take that line when you argue with people. Danny Cowley would probably consider a move up two divisions to Reading if Clement got...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Yes football expert. One club is on the rise and the other has a very good chance of being relegated into oblivion.
