Re: The Non - League thread

Maidenhead edge a hard fought game v Tranmere last night. Game looked destined for 0-0 from the start in all fairness, two combative teams cancelling each other for the most part in poor conditions. Just my kind of game! Maidenhead started without any strikers due to injuries and departure of Dave ...

I'm having doubts as to whether McCleary can ever be the player he was again. Too many injuries, and he looks well off the pace now.

Re: BFTG (H) Brizzle

5 goals scored in 6 league games is simply not top 6 form. Any armchair idiot such as myself can see the problem is the lack of ANY goalscorers in the side. Yet the Dutchman insists on buying ever more midfielders. The problem with that statement is the implication we didn't try too hard to bring a...

Re: The Non - League thread

...went to Corinthian Casuals the other week and found it a bit a of disappointing venue for such an august club. I also found it dreary when I went a few years ago, perhaps not helped being in Tolworth, which makes Slough look like Las Vegas. Unable to find a pub (there isn't one from about two mi...

Re: Oxford - Reading

I can see us playing Oxford quite soon. They are quite a well supported club and have bigger plans. Let's just hope they get a 4th stand by that time so we can take a good load up there. We will be back playing them within a year or two. They had a very brief run in the 1980s due to fraudster Rober...

Re: 8.00 Evening kick offs

I remember Adie Williams having a rant about 8 pm kicks offs, saying they were all kicking off at 7.45 for champions league games, and nobody gave him a little nudge to remind him that most of continental Europe is an hour ahead.

Re: 8.00 Evening kick offs

I can remember when half time was only 10 minutes, which gradually became 15 minutes, or more in some cases. As Kevin Dillon alluded to, (as quoted by Sutekh), 15 minutes became the norm after Sky started showing live games. It's nothing to do with Sky. They used to have two commercial breaks at ha...

Re: Stop explicit language in the ground...

Is it Ginger Roy? No. It's young lad, about 18 or so. Ginger Roy must be about 40 now. I used to know him years back, friend of a friend, when he worked at the 3Bs at town hall. I remember him having to compare a quiz night once as the guy who used to do it had to work the bar. He got very flustere...

Re: The Non - League thread

Maidenhead lost Dave Tarpey to Barnet subject to EFL clearance. Huge blow for them. Unless he was demanding a move, or Barnet paid a large fee, it seems a crazy bit of business for Maidenhead. They looked to have a good chance of staying up with him in the team. Now though, they are probably odds o...

Re: Reading FC 1985/86

Senior was an instinctive striker. Sling the ball into the box and he'd find some way of getting part of his body into it and he wasn't afraid of getting a boot in the face in the process. Give time and space and he was clueless. We sold him to Watford and he returned via Middlesbrough. They'd taug...

Listened to BBC West Midlands on the way back and the twatish commentator said it wasn't a good result against the most boring dull team in football (as is also mentioned on their forum).

Shearer's reaction Sterling's red card highlighted everything that is wrong with pundits in this country - "the rules say the ref has to do X in this situation, but they are wrong, and should do Y instead" By all means argue that the rule should be changed, but don't moan when refs apply t...
