Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Not sure what point you're making here Sangers? A statistical analysis of a manager's career doesn't tell the full story. Rodgers has got results in various jobs, but his approach wasn't right for Reading. Gomes has had some questionable tenures in the past, but appears a very good fit for our club...

Re: Ups & Downs 2018/19

Genuinely feel bad for Aldershot, Conference South is so far from where they expect to be. Hoping Wimbledon and Hungerford avoid the drop, as far as promotion is concerned happy for Orient/Solihull in the NL and wouldn't mind Pompey coming up tbh Stopped reading here. Load of cocky bastards who hat...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Going back to the 'analysis' of Gomes at the top of page 7 based on his past record, it remains bizarre to me that Reading fans take this approach having personally 'enjoyed' the Brendan Rodgers experience. A great record at Liverpool and Celtic, but he wasn't the right fit for Reading at all. Not ...

Re: Weekend Football

After this weekend's round of games the European spots are all sewn up - still CL or Europa League to sort out, but no-one can catch Arsenal or United and snatch 6th place. I did wonder if this was the earliest European qualification had been decided, but having read your stats from previous seasons...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Worth adding I think that whilst to finish with 97 points and not win the league would be ridiculous, for two such evenly matched teams one might think it a 'fair' result given that City edged the two league meetings between the sides. Lots of talk of Liverpool having 'struggled' since Xmas, but si...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Franchise FC 95 points plus and finishing second :shock:
One of them is going to do it :shock:


Liverpool could reach 97 and not win it. City could make 96 with four wins and a draw, and not win it, too. Mental.

Old Man Andrews
And then Bournemouth next season hopefully who have spectacularly forgotten where they came from.


Hadn't noticed that at all.
Didn't think anyone hated Bournemouth!

Re: Ups & Downs 2018/19

Could end up with all top 3 teams in the championship on 90+ points Has happened once before. Sunderland came third with 90 points in 1997-98 (Middlesbrough got 91, Forest won the division with 94). Incredibly Charlton came fourth that year with 88 points :lol: , which would normally be enough for ...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

All you are trying to do is slyly imply that I am racist so I won't bother any more especially as you just keep on doing a Theresa May and making the same point over and over again but with no valid suggestions. The authorities ought to be dooing something-nobody is arguing about that, it is a ques...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

Football associations, UEFA, FIFA etc, need to get tough on racism in football grounds. And that needs to be both a professional and grass roots level. Matches should be abandoned, points forfeited, places in competitions lost. Telling black players that if they really feel victimised then they sho...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

A bit of an extreme example but do you think the late great Martin Luther King thought that he should leave everything to the authorities? If everybody who felt victimised in life just sat on their hands and did nothing do you think things would still get done (perhaps so in the world of Theresa Ma...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

In an ideal world yes but it is not an ideal world. Rather than just walking off the pitch, which no longer seems to happen,I believe it is up to the referee to stop the game and take the players off. In the meantime, as I posted earlier,our FA needs to lobby FIFA and EUFA much more strongly than t...

Re: Racism in football (John Terry spin-off)

That's bleedin' obvious. This is not a perfect world, in case you hadn't noticed, so sometimes it requires people to stand up for things and take action rather than sit on their hands and do oxf*rd all. The point being that it shouldn't be up to players to do so because they happen to be black, not...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Or to put it another simpler way, if Liverpool had sold players for a total of £5bn, their agents fees would be roughly the same. I disagree on that. Agents are often paid to help the offloading of players. Net transfer spend is an odd one though. For a start, how long do you go back to count trans...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

And apparently Man City are buying the title :roll: Well you seem sensible enough most of the time, so you'll know that Liverpool have sold Suarez, Coutinho and Sterling in the last few years for about 6 quadrillion dollars, and that agents fees have nothing to do with net transfer spend. But, carr...
