Re: BFTG - Brentford

Disappointing that what should have been a pretty positive thread on the Brentford game has descended into another war of words over Gunter. There is so much criticism over his apparent failure to close players down and allow crosses to come in. I would suggest that over the past couple of seasons ...

Re: BFTG - The miracle of Carrow Road.

He definitely wasn’t happy under Clement. He really didn’t perform for him at all. Whether that was an attitude issue, or PCs tactics/set up, it’s difficult to say. I’d have happily seen him sold in Jan tbh He has been a real asset in the last 10 games or so. Massively improved, and a lot of credit...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

We have some real numpties on here. The bottom line is the club endorse it. Having been in there all season I can say without any shadow of doubt that I am enjoying going to games again. I can stand without some pleb telling me to sit down, I can move around, and have a sing song and oxf*rd smile a...

Snowflake Royal Williams is Premier League quality.


Is he Fcuk! He's top to mid Championship at best. His last season for us he played out of his skin, but barring that he was bang average for us the majority of the time.

"one of" is pretty vague how many are in your list of best players, total? Top 10 ROFL. Kitson, Doyle, Sigurdsson, Kebe, Little, Sidwell, Harper, Gunnarsson, Shaka, Hahnemann, Wdowczyk, Ingimarsson, Convey, Osborn, McAnuff, Long, A Williams, Gooding, S Taylor, Sonko, Harte, Griffin, Leige...

Re: Financial Fair Play

So how do we go about getting the club fan owned and moving this ship back to Elm Park? Bit tricky buying all the houses in elm Park, and knocking them down. Is there room to fit a stadium where the Hexagon is now? That would be a great location. make it hexagonal hexagonal pitch, 6 teams per game,...

Re: Financial Fair Play

this may all be well now, while we have seemingly benevolent owners, willing to invest and lose money.

Re: Financial Fair Play

Just started to take a look through the accounts for both the football club and Renhe Sports Management (its formal UK parent company). Here are some key points coming out for me 1. While we lost £21m (which including a net spend on players of £6.8m), the club actually burnt through £27m in cash. T...

Re: Financial Fair Play

Hasn’t it always been that way though ? Clubs used to rely on a local self made business man to throw money into the bottomless pit. Back in the 60’s Reading FC were propped up by fund raising by the Supporters Club. With the Sky nightmare the whole thing went stupid so now it is foreign billionair...

Re: Economics

Lets not shy away from the fact that ending up in Div One would be a disaster. At present I put it at 50/50; there just does not seem to be an initiative amongst the current squad to battle it out.We all know who the four teams are battling to avoid the last relegation slot. Our team sheet is the s...

Re: Economics

You think there is ANY chance of them walking away ? The money they have spent wil barely register on their balance sheet and undoubtably will actually be off setting tax bills. Still not seeing where your claim that we are weeks away from bankruptcy comes from. That is such a different thing to en...
