Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

What a sad, sad time it is for my club You must be new around here. Help yourself to a rumblestick or two, help pass a grey dirty dishrag around the East Stand whilst backing the boys and making some noise and then when your done sit back and watch this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rp3toJ9cAQ ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (h) sponsored by a plea from Terry Cooper

Few points from this game 1. Walker does not utilise his height from crosses, so poor today with crosses, good few saves though 2. Midfield still needs improving, they don't offer enough defensively 3. Barrow and Baldock both worked hard today but didn't really offer a lot in an attacking sense, fu...

Re: Whats wrong with our training???

Got to say though the continual number of injuries this club manages to pick up in training since Stam arrived beggars belief and is beyond "bad luck". There must be something wrong somewhere, if not with training itself then the general approach to and player fitness. Just look back to t...

Re: Whats wrong with our training???

Obita has been at Bracknell Town recently in their chryo chamber and training alone on the pitch. sounds positive. How is he getting on? No disrespect to Bracknell Town, but if they can afford a Chryo Chamber, Why don't we have one of our own - It's not as if the club won't get regular use out of i...

Do we have a 4th choice keeper available or are two whose names I can't even remember back from injury?
Yiadom will be missed, but not as much as having no goalkeeper.

I said this a few weeks ago, as did OMA, yet we were both ridiculed..... Why is he spending time playing video games when he should be clearly trying to improve to get into the first team?

Re: David Meyler - Reading's biggest ever mercenary?

David Meyler - to be honest, I don't even recognise the name, probably goes to prove how disconnected I feel from the club these days but perhaps also an indication that he hasn't been utterly terrible.

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

Re: Bust up between Clement and Barrow

A spell on the sidelines might help if he does have an attitude but relegating him from the bench is foolish (imo). If Barrow has a negative attitude then this decision may be about preventing it from affecting the other players in the squad and also sending a message to the rest of the squad that ...
