Re: On this day

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

Yeah probably a wise move. Will keep things more or less status quo and knows all of the players. If it ain't broke don't fix it. Makes sense really. Frank, though, may be the only manager to ever resign after the club chairman logged on to a fans forum under a pseudonym to insult him. I wouldn't s...

Right :lol:

He rejected Ipswich


Thank you KentRoyal!

Ipswich are about as established in the 2nd tier as it gets but he chose to stay an Lincoln. To him it is about football and not money.

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Wow! A six figure cash injection from new investors! So could be a little as £100k. I can see why you think Reading would be a less attractive option than Lincoln... :roll: Wow, what a moron. I said they are picking up new investors all the time which is a fact. They are already quite well off fina...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

Everything I just said is a fact, choose to ignore them if you like but they are facts. Gourlay and Nani run the club, Clement coaches the players. Our transfer incomings over the past couple of seasons indicate we have no/little money to spend (in the grand scheme of things). We have several knack...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

There is absolutely no reason why he would want to come here at this time, no footballing ones anyway. He is building a club and no doubt has a lot of control. Here he has Nani and Gourlay over his shoulder watching his every move. He will have no transfer budget to bring new players in and a load o...

You said I needed to have a lie down. So you agree with what I said then? Reading could go down and Lincoln should be going up? Right get it now.

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

He'd certainly be top of many club's lists at the moment. Cracking job for them so far. Wouldn't be against appointing him at all but I think we have come to the point in time when you could realistically say he'd probably want to stay at Lincoln rather than coming to us. They are on their way up a...

Re: Rumour - Phil Parkinson

My choice of manager would be Cowley who's manager at Lincoln. He's done an outstanding job up there and we need a manager who has had success and a winning mentality. I hope we don't go down the route of hiring a coach again He'd certainly be top of many club's lists at the moment. Cracking job fo...

Re: Nations League & Friendlies

Harry Wilson looks like he's going to be a major player, shame Wales got to him before England did really. Not really a shame at all, he's Welsh and should play for Wales. For the record, I believe England did get in touch with him and see if there was a chance he'd play for England but he, rightly...

Re: Reading v Millwall, I'm looking forward to seeing

Coin hitting my ex as I ducked down behind her.

Some shirtless bloke make the most feeble attempt to climb into Y26 going as far as to run to where the two stewards were so they could stop his attempt.

The Millwall supporters making that droning noise for 5 minutes straight.
