Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

very slowly turning things around in very difficult circumstances and with very limited resources.
still on a knife edge and very much 2 steps forward, 1.75 steps back at the mo, but there are signs of improvement and we are getting points in the games we need to.

Re: Clement

i'm happy for him to have another month, but feels like he's on the brink, but the owners have shown patience before and will again imo.
think he will have at least till the intl. break.

Re: Worst RFC manager, statistically, after 23 league games.

I honestly believe the squad we have just doesn't have the talent, no matter what manager we have won`t be able to do any better. you have to question the recruitment policy in the summer. 2 summers in fact id say the summer before was where the real damage was done. (this summer we were just tryin...

Re: Solutions to problems (instead of moaning)

Re: How Hobnob Team page works - BFTG

this is why internet social media stuff is aimed towards outrage. it generates more clicks, more interactions, and therefore it pays better.
which is why we are all going to hell in a hand cart

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Success on the pitch/entertaining football would bring more back, and improve the atmosphere, but personally though I'm not sure I would for the reasons Mags gives. There is a problem with football generally though. It's too expensive for what it is. As a result the young male teenage fan base will...

I'm not eating the pie, I'm merely buying it for the free pint and five pound off my match ticket

Re: Clement

Clement would be breaking new ground. He's never been anywhere longer than about 6 months? It took Bielsa at Leeds about 1 month? And they haven't even made the playoffs in more than a decade. Did it always take Warnock 'a few years'? Of course. It usually takes Warnock 2 or 3 seasons to get his te...

Re: Madejski Out

Bournemouth is a terrible comparison. Their owner(s) are filthy rich, unlike JM, so they can afford to back their manager. and theres still a 50:50 chance that they will go back down in a few seasons and be in a right mess Do you actually not want us to get promotion? The 'risks' of promotion are t...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

It's the club who are losing in the end by protecting the players from the media. We don't feel connected to this group of players. Not like we felt so connected to Glenn Little, Harps and the rest. As the connection fades, people get less interested and the passion starts to die. The players shoul...

If sir John had just taken the risk and invested in our great 2006 side we could have been a Bournemouth or Brighton, instead he was scared of the huge costs of sustaining PL survival.

Re: Madejski Out

From the year we moved to the Madejski to the year he sold up, we had only one bottom half finish in 15 seasons. The year we finished 18th in the Prem on goal difference. Just think though. What if he'd dug even deeper into his own pocket and invested more into the club. You know, ditched all his p...
