Re: Relegation Watch

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we go to Cardiff having already secured status, and Colin needing to win for automatic !! Dreamland. I don't like Warnock but I don't have anything in particular against Cardiff. Assuming Swansea stay up it would be good to have another tasty PL derby. Also I quite enjoy...

Re: Building for next season

I'm hoping that we're just going to start the season with a different mentality and atmosphere to this one, and that a few current under-performers will up their game. Aluko looks like he has a lot of talent so if Clement can manage him better then between him and Barrow we could have a pretty decen...

Re: Safe standing progress

Whilst not being a direct reason for Hillsborough, it was indicative of how football supporters were regarded at the time, fenced in in unsafe areas, and treated as a problem. Pick up any fanzine in the aftermath of Hillsborough and they were all awash with stories of crumbling terraces, aggressive...

Re: The Secret Footballer .... Again

I always assumed that either the Secret Footballer stories were a composite of a few different players or that some of them at least were fabricated. It doesn't seem that they can all fit together and be the same person - there is stuff in there that 100% couldn't be Kits.

Re: Rival Watch

It was an amazing goal last night but I don't understand the cum in their pants reactions to it, on the BBC live feed some reporter said it was the best goal he had seen in 30 years. It wasn't even the best goal this week. It was one of those that looks spectacular but was it really that good? He's...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Re: BFTG Fulham

I was really worried about the complete lack of connection between players when we attack. You would never believe that those footballers had been on the same pitch together, let alone are in the same team. It was just a case of 'get the ball, head down, run until you get tackled, maybe pass to empt...

Re: Safe standing progress

It's so sad that this is still being opposed. I mean after Hillsborough you can understand why emotion overrode logic. . . but now it's purely a political issue of MPs having to put up with Daily Mail scare stories for months on end.

Re: BFTG Villa

I guess that Clement is still trying to get to grips with his team. Away at Villa wasn't a particularly winnable game and it makes sense for him to try things out.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h) sponsored by the season starts here

I knew things would turn round as soon as Stam left. It's not an amazing squad but it's good enough to beat at least half the league at home.

Re: Leaving Games Early...?

Does anyone want to confess or out someone for leaving a cup game at the final whistle without realising there would be extra time and penalties? - Each time we're in that situation you always see fans leaving and being called back by others. There are many League Cup Round 2 matches where I wish I...

I will be renewing next season regardless, because I'm apparently a glutton for punishment. As I said to someone at work today, it doesn’t matter what league we are in, it’s a life sentence as far as I am concerned. You can choose your friends but you can’t chose your football club. No - but you ca...

Re: Reading or England?

Couldn't care less about the England team. Bunch of unlikable prima donnas who are more interested in FIFA tournaments than national tournaments. For them playing for England is just a status thing.
