Re: Its all gone quiet

In years past we would get fans feedback from players, the kit man , Nigel Howe etc. But now nothing, no rumours on Stam or players in/out why so quiet surely someone has the inside track or knows a player? Have you considered that there is absolutely nothing to say? The club has stagnated, there i...

Was it as little as that??? I was there and it seemed like more to me. Would estimate 200-ish.

Re: Low away attendances

Just picking up on something touched on in the polices forum about low away attendances. Anyone know what the lowest way attendance is to watch Reading in terms of Reading fans? I know the Readings trip to Chester back in the early 90s attracted about 630 in total but presumably the Reading turn ou...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Chris Powell in as Southend manager. Always struck me as a bloke too nice for the murky world of football management.

Good of Ross County to delay the announcement so it didn't overshadow the Sanchez deal.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (a) sponsored by total apathy

I am going to this due to already having a random day off at work. Fearing the worst. Pat on the back for you sir. I think we'll field the same side as we did vs. Stevenage. I never want us to lose a game ever, but if we lose this then I'll be less bothered. If we are going to lose I just hope we d...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

that is true. I do think at some point Gourlay will have to say enough is enough though It begs the question how bad will it have to be before that happens? I personally think there is a far greater chance of Stam walking than Gourlay pulling the trigger. The longer Stam stays the more damage is do...

Re: BFTG Brentford

I would say that he has noticeably gone off the boil though since Christmas. Seems a bit jaded and leggy. As has been said previously he is streets ahead of Aluko and any other attacking players we have though.

I'd hope so, he'd be a useless footballer otherwise

Re: The Non - League thread

I enquired about the installation of a 3G for the youth club I run. Just for a kids 9 v 9 it was over £100,000. Bracknell you'd be looking at well over 200k. Having Googled it the reported refurb at Bracknell was anything between £500k-£1m with one article on GetReading suggesting they were spendin...

Re: The Non - League thread

Ah right. I was more than half cut when being informed last night :lol: As for 3g Windsor don't have it and have a great pitch. 3g has a shelf life doesn't it? Doesn't make economic sense. Windsor used the Slough money it didn't spunk on old Wycombe players on drainage. I seem to remember Bracknell...

I've actually given up on football but I really want to go in to league 1 because the away days look unbelievable, please can I have some confirmation that someone is on the same wavelength. Yep we all want to go down and be financially crippled for years to come just so you can go to Oldham away. ...

I always find it strange when people moan about Twitter accounts they don't like. In the time it took you to moan you could have muted and blocked the account that offends you so much.

Re: Marco Silva

No thanks. He has failed at both clubs he has managed in England. He nearly saved a Hull side who were arguably one of the worst in Premier League history and he's had half a season at Watford who are in 10th place. Hardly failing is it.
