Re: Financial Fair Play

How did Wolves do it? They made some signings early doors, after which everyone was playing for 2nd place. Heard FFP rumours, but then it went quiet. Haven’t even really changed their team all that much in PL, and not only stayed up, but likely in Europe. Not out of the wood yet - report from March...

Re: RIP - Gordon Neate

Details from Wikipedia;- Fred was colour sargeant in the Middlesex Regiment during the First World War, played in Southern League, retired from playing in 1923 was coach for three years, Groundsman for fifty-three years until retirement in 1957, so Gorden quite likely took over from him. Can any oth...

Re: RIP - Gordon Neate

Should call something at the group after him. Not a stand but maybe the bar in the south west corner or something. Surely the bar should be called "The Robin Friday Bar"? But, agree something should be named after Gorden, though. Any other ideas, apart from a Blue Plaque, which I also agr...

Re: Championship free agents... who would you have?

I would like to throw two names into the ring, before I do a hasty retreat and await the explosion.
Blackman and Pearce.

Re: BFT(final)G

My memory of Somerton Park was going there for a FA Cup replay in the mid 1960's. A special train was laid on for the Reading fans and we all walked from Newport Station to the ground, and as we passed a fish & chip shop, a wag at the front of the long snaking queue went in and asked for "f...

Re: BFTG - Boro (A)

Uke Were there inflatables?

There were quite a few shown on the RFC website Picture Gallery. According to Tim Dellor a sea-horse was on the pitch. But it was probably the T-Rex that Matt Miazga killed off by stamping on it.

Re: Rival Watch

Would we prefer Villa to get their FFP points deduction now and drop out of the playoffs, or next season and start their PL life on -9 ? Or I guess ideally for them to lose the playoffs and start next season in the Champ on -9 ! As far as I know, the Premier League do not deduct points for EFL offe...

Re: If Bolton don't complete their fixtures

The bigger question is what happens should Bolton fold - presumably unlikely as there appears to be a buyer in the wings. Presumably if Bolton did fold only 2 clubs would go down from our division this season, with 3 coming up as usual. Then only three down from the 3rd tier and four coming up, wit...
