Re: Short memories

The club actually behaves pretty well with this stuff. You can't really complain about ticket prices at the Mad Stad.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by things can only get better

Seems like we're going to finally get some luck in this game.

Could be the result to spur us on to a mini-revival.

Edit - Never mind . . . . . . . .

Re: First team jetting off to Spain for intensive training

Don't really care about them going, but the cost cant be cheap...I thought we had no money.....still if its a "clear the air" sort of trip its worth a bash.....wont change anything though I suspect. The other side of the coin is if they are going down there, clearly Stam is here for somet...

Re: What was the single biggest mistake we made this season?

The finances issue is really down to the owner's personal commitment to the club. Presumably they paid multiple millions for us last year so they're not just going to throw their hands up and let us slide into administration. You would assume they would fund at least one season of league one footbal...

Re: What was the single biggest mistake we made this season?

If we go down - not sacking Stam after the Burton home match. I think that was the worst Reading game i've ever been to in terms of what happened on the pitch and the atmosphere. Which is a shame because I thought that the club did a really good job of promoting the 500th game and getting such a bi...

Re: What was the single biggest mistake we made this season?

Obita got injured after the window ended didn't he? In hindsight we've really struggled at LB but if Obita had been fit it wouldn't have been an issue I think the biggest mistake in hindsight was trusting that Yann would come back and hit the ground running and play as he did last year. So as an ex...

What was the single biggest mistake we made this season?

Having Stam as manager . . . . . . Not replacing the Heineken van with another West Berks Brewery one . . . . Ian Royal. There you go, i've done the joke answers for you. . . Seriously - I think it was buying Aluko rather than getting a new left back in. Had we bough a left back then we'd have had a...

Re: The only course of action now...

Regrettable it seems to me that the club has little choice but to make the change now. This is a good time for us to do it - a week and a half before our next game. Lets give a manager a chance to play at home against two tough teams this month so we can be ready in March when we play the games we n...

Re: The reason we're stuck with Stam

You know, it's just a reality that most football fans are extremely fickle and the best thing that owners can do most of the time is ignore them. The sort of people who start crying about relegation when the club loses 3 games in a row but then sing about promotion when they win 3 games. Like the Ar...

Re: The very latest in STAM OUT threads...with poll

Please, PLEASE can we get rid of the damn stupid Ian Royal options from the polls. Its such a stale joke it's just rancid and irritating. If that means I'm not considered a proper Nobber then so be it . Perhaps we can have a poll to see who wants to dispense with it henceforth? (Massive fan of conf...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Burton Albion (a) sponsored by points mean prizes

From the Twitter posts I get the impression that they've given Stam an ultimatum with this game. Result or you're gone.
