Yes, it's on BT Sport, followed by the FA Trophy final. It's the third year in a row that they have shown this (since finals day started). I always enjoy FA Non League finals day, and I think it is certainly one of the better ideas that the FA have come up with for Wembley. 8)

Re: 2017/2018 - What went wrong?

Perhaps it would be more enlightening to compare this season's performances to last season's. Has Swift started making fewer incisive passes? Is Gunter making fewer tackles? Is Joey passing backwards more? That way you're actually using a comparison rather than just looking at numbers and trying to...

2017/2018 - What went wrong?

This is my first post in a couple of years (other than a very short one about Lewis Ward last week), but I thought that this season had been so poor, it needed some Analysis. Of course, there are simple answers such as "style of play", "not enough wins", "Jaap Stam" etc...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Just watched the Aldershot/Ebbsfleet Penalty Shootout, Lewis Ward saved 2 penalties after saving one during the 90 minutes too, then stepped up to take a sudden death penalty and hit the post... gutted for him!

Re: The romance of the cup

This tie has brought up a lot of talk of our manager for obvious reasons. However, in the unlikely event that we do actually manage to win this tie, I think that we should dedicate the win to one Stephen Hunt. As surprisingly, I have yet to see mention of a certain manager. One that I believe is the...

Re: Newcastle ( A) match thread sponsored by Danny Guthrie

Have Commentary now, but I also had nothing on Reading Player for first 7 minutes of the match. Keeping a tally, and so far have missed 32 minutes of the season. I am getting thoroughly fed up with the same problem every match. Why can they not get their act together and sort this out?

Re: Reading FC not invited to the... erm... party?

Looking at the dates of the first round matches, I see that they are all the Tuesday before international matches. So I am not sure how many of even our U21 players will be there for the matches, as they may be off for U21 internationals. I still don't like the idea of the new format, but I can see ...

Re: Are you getting excited yet?

Never mind this time last year, I'm fairly sure most of us were getting excited around October time last year. Therefore this season, I will reserve judgement, and won't get excited until we are well into the season and I see that the players are playing well together, and I am convinced that the ow...

Re: Reading FC not invited to the... erm... party?

So what happens if the F.A. can't muster 16 cat 1 teams? This idea is beginning to look dead in the water before it even starts. :roll:

Also, are there any teams in League 1 and League 2 with Cat 1? If so, would they then get 2 teams in the cup (and potentially have to play themselves)? :lol:
