Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

Agree Warnock should be on the list and quite high, he's had success and similar to 'Arry he gets the best out of players (in terms of getting results that is, maybe not the best in terms of character).

Re: 2017/18 Championship Fixtures

No fixture on valentines day next year and no home games over Christmas (23rd Dec doesn't count), that will make my life easier with the missus. Fortunately her birthday falls outside of the football season too. I could tell her I e-mailed the FA and arranged this, she'll believe me too but I'll be ...

Re: Charlie Watts - great journo

I suspect half of what they don't like about the articles are things dictated by GR rather than the journalist, things like "We need you to pump out one article a day" regardless of whether there's anything newsworthy to discuss. It's a free service though, they don't force you to visit th...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

The role of the directors is to run the club, and be legally responsible for it being done correctly isn't it ? Are you surprised that non shareholders are on the board ? It's the same as it was under SJM where half the directors were not shareholders, Not sure I entirely understand your point, in ...

Spitting image chicken song

Wave your blue flag in the air
Stick a rumblestick up your nose
Buy the new home shirt
and then bury all your clothes
Paint your face blue and white
Then add a jesters hat
Sign up to hobnob
And pretend your name is Ian Royal

Re: Huddersfield fan here

It's not impossible. There are plenty of ex championship clubs holding their own up there. Huddersfield have a great chance. I hope the next time we meet it is as a premier league fixture. or Wembley FA Cup Final next season, of course it would be only fair to let us have the Wembley win on that oc...

Re: The 2017/18 season preview/expectation and build up thread

Also, how is Cardiff and Bristol the same distance? Google maps suggests Madejski Stadium - Cardiff City FC = 112 miles one way = 224 return (same as GR) Madejski Stadium - Bristol City FC = 84 miles one way = 168 return Either they have based this off of some dodgy expense claims submitted by Char...
