Re: 2017/18 Championship Fixtures

Hands off our opening game away to QPR Sky Sports. I don't want you moving it. The first Saturday of the season on a hot August day away to QPR is a game that I am definitely looking forward to. Don't ruin it Sky. Good shout but I think we're ok as they are showing Sunderland v Derby on the Friday ...

Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

Nigel Clough deserves an honourable mention for keeping Burton in the Championship on limited resources. Definitely. Also achieved previously with them by getting them into the league. Not been a slouch at Sheff Utd or Derby either, seems to be consistently reliable wherever he goes and produces te...

Re: U20 World Cup

I saw a headline on Get Reading that Swift inspired the England side to victory or something to that effect. What a load of tosh, he was pretty average before being subbed. Anyway, they play their final group game this evening, against Poland, and a win will secure them the group and progression to...

Re: Now starts the re-build

Like to see him stay but expect him to go and take up an opportunity in the PL. No problem if that is the case as there will be a ton of other players that can run around with an infectious energy, get booked a lot, blast the ball over/wide at regular intervals and get frustrated with the ref after ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Wonder if we'll get some form of PR statement/media presence from the new owners before the season starts. It would be nice to have some form of public comment from them just to understand priorities etc. Hopefully Jaap will soon sign a new deal and there'll be an official media opportunity to catch...

Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

"Reading underachieved compared to what was expected and played boring football" - but the Dutchman merits a place in the top 10 on the evidence to hand. :?: :?: does that even make sense? It's also an utterly clueless statement and therefore written by someone who has no idea about the c...

Re: Reading on Sky

We should, at the very least, get fair coverage given the relevance of our fixtures to the rest of the division and, on that basis alone, our lack of TV exposure in recent times has been nothing short of disgraceful. And here we go again :| As the team that came closest to winning promotion that st...

Re: Tom Lawrence - 3.8m

To be honest I don't believe there is anything in this. Leicester have lost Mahrez haven't they? And given Lawrence's form for Ipswich last year plus the fact he's been highly tipped for the future and they've got a more down to earth manager now I can't see him going anywhere apart from the Leicest...

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

How many minutes of football do you currently see? Latest stats I can find quickly is for 2010-11. Time in play varied a lot ranging from 3 games with 44 mins of playing time up to 2 with 66. Most games had around 54-57 mins of actual playing time. http://www.soccermetrics.net/team-performance/effe...

3.8m? Is that how much he'll cost or how tall he is?

By the way which game will be unaccountably moved to a Friday night. There's usually one.

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

Surely the only times the game will be stop-start are the same as now? Except we won't lose playing time when they occur? Personally I think it's an idea fraught with problems but "the game will become American Football" or even worse "the game will become plastic" aren't really...

I imagine that will have one hell of an atmosphere about it and they are probably going to be about as wound up to win it as it is possible to get at that stage of a season.

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

At the end of the day I don't think any of us expect Danny to be playing for Reading next season. We all think he'll be in the PL and if that is the case I hope he does well. Huddersfield is just as good a place as anywhere else and there is a strong German connection there as well so he'll be a goo...

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

The 60 minutes cr@p is just that (probably suggested to help make the game more TV and advertising friendly so FIFA can devise ways to sell more of it). The day that happens will be the end of the game as far as I am concerned. Why is it cr@p and how will it be the end of the game? Appreciate it th...
