RIP Jimmy Armfield

So sad to hear of Jimmy Armfield’s passing today. Absolute legend in both football and broadcasting.

One of the nicest guys ever and one of the few who talked complete and utter sense about the game

Thsnks Jim. RIP

Re: The Non - League thread

I enquired about the installation of a 3G for the youth club I run. Just for a kids 9 v 9 it was over £100,000. Bracknell you'd be looking at well over 200k. Having Googled it the reported refurb at Bracknell was anything between £500k-£1m with one article on GetReading suggesting they were spendin...

Re: New winger + possible new striker

Any source to this one? Jack Marriott at Peterborough would look to be a good shout at the moment if you want a lower league striker though probably in the £2/3m bracket Though can't see any of it mattering really considering that the strikers we do have sit on the bench, get injured and if they do ...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

MK Dons sacked Robbie Neilsen at the weekend and Bury parted company with Chris Lucketti after 2 months last week and the club promptly went and won at *xf*rd on Saturday.

Re: BFTG Brentford

Every week Stam's post game interview with BBCRB is exactly the same. 'The players aren't doing what we are telling them to do' There comes a point when people need to stop believing this bullshit. He is becoming more predictable than Adkins. What are they doing in training? What is he saying to pl...

Ah right. I was more than half cut when being informed last night :lol: As for 3g Windsor don't have it and have a great pitch. 3g has a shelf life doesn't it? Doesn't make economic sense.

Re: BFTG Brentford

I thought we should stick with him longer to see if he could pull us out of the relegation battle but we just keep slipping. I can't remember our home form being this bad in living memory. Did we even have a run this bad in the premiership relegation seasons? When we went down under Bullivant? Even...

BFTG Brentford

Better performance but given the utter crap of the last 2/3 league games at home that really isnt difficult Usual issue, too much piddling about and not enough creativity even though Bod was MotM Richards off at half time due to a hamstring problem Berg still getting a game is amazing. Does he have ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by still no Saturday home win this season

Either Stam has to go or the style has to be altered. I cannot see Reading being bottle enough to survive a full blown relegation scrap playing in this appalling way. Time and again after the match in his interview you get the manager basically saying the ball needs to be moved forward quicker and h...

Similar thing happened in 98. Fa cup tie v Sheff Utd switched to Friday that time just 3 days after beating Cardiff in the last round. What I don’t understand is why they switch to a Friday & not Sunday. Probably down to plod. I remember that United game. Was there. Lost 1-0 on Friday 13th Febr...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

Let's not panic until the window shuts and once again Reading will have done sod all about a striker but more than likely will have got another midfielder in.

Re: RUMOUR - Yoann Barbet

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

No problem with this signing. Good player with proven record at this level and is just what Stam needs to plug the gap at left back, in midfield or on the bench Wonder if it will happen at all or it's all no more than Reading enquiring about availability, realising he can score goals and then giving...

It’s down to agreement between the clubs I believe.... “Extra Time in First Matches If a first match is drawn after 90 minutes, an extra 30 minutes may be played (15 minutes each way).
