Re: BFTG - QPR (A)

Part of me thinks the undercooked thing is a poor excuse though, they are young professional footballers, two months without a game shouldn't affect them this much


I think this flies in the face of everything we know about offseasons/preseasons, and proper match fitness

Re: BFTG - QPR (A)

quite worried that anyone thinks its ok to get into the season totally undercooked and understaffed and also worried that the sheer volume of injuries is indicative of something deeper about our training/fitness regime

Re: Safe standing progress

even last year during our relative success the atmosphere was pretty awful
(odd game aside.)

and it was the atmosphere/songs/bantz that made me enjoy games and want to follow reading in the first place.

its amazing anyone comes back after their first visit to the madejski nowadays imo

Re: Madejski Stadium cladding.

even if it had combustible insulation(why insulate an open football stadium?) in it I reckon you could pretty much set fire to the entire outside and everyone inside the bowl would still be fine
