Re: BFTG - Fulham

I don't get the idea that Fulham are a very good side. In the first minute their bloke got sent off for grabbing Barrow's foot and they then spent the rest of the game trying to get one of ours sent off. I don't think there was a minute in the game where one of their players wasn't down on the groun...

Re: Heightened Security Measures

Fair enough. I wasn't patted down though.

80,000 were at Wembley for the PO final. Security was very thorough, but it was managed with the minimum of disruption.

Re: Heightened Security Measures

The stupidest thing about the searches was that those without bags weren't searched, but all bags were. If I was entering the LW to cause trouble with, say, a knife or club, I'm pretty sure I would carry it in a pocket, rather than a handbag. Another thing - at HT I sneak out for a smoke. I did the ...

Re: Transfer fees out of control

I'm not concerned about not spending tonnes. We've consistently proved that you don't need to spend a lot (at least in transfer fees) to be successful. It's about recruiting the right sort of player and it's about the team. Even with the undoubted quality that Wolves have signed I'd be very surpris...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

I for one am shaking with anger about the complete lack of news, and the utter contempt with which the club treats its fans. We are literally last every season. This year I think its only Wednesday and us who haven't released at least one kit in the entire football league. No ambition This is obvio...

Re: RUMOUR: Gunter to Boro

Success and Failure are very much relative terms. The squad that finished very near the bottom of the league for the two previous seasons managed to get to the Play-off final, and only lost on penalties. That, to my mind, is the sign of a successful club. Whether you like the play-offs or not, they ...

Re: BFTG - Wembley

My knowledge of football is such that I couldn't give advice to Jaap Stam. I saw the game as being one of us defending a 1-0 lead. That worked very well - Huddersfield had (I think) 2 shots on target throughout the 120 minutes. We didn't really try to go forward and it was a bit of a surprise that w...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

Atmosphere was good in 109, too, given the general lack of action on the pitch.

When AAH saved the penalty, I thought I was going to explode. Mind you, when Liam Moore blasted his over, it got a bit quieter.

Re: Which side should the mini-kit be?

I assume 'little-TBM' is your son and not some sort of euphemism.

If it's a euphemism, just wear it whichever side you want. If it's your son, the same.

Happy Birthday to your little man! Well done on getting him to have his face painted. Mine won't co-operate with me on that score. I had grand visions of hoops all over the face and a big red 13 on each cheek, but no, he won't do it. He's wearing his shirt and his Reading cap, that's as far as he'l...

Re: Programme this season

When at a home game, I like to read about the opposition team. In the past they used to give pen-pictures of the opposing players. So, if I see someone do something good or bad, I want to read about them. Also, as everyone else has said, it does annoy me when they clog up the middle of the programme...

You can park in the Wembley Red Car Park. Right by our end and £30.

Play Offs

In the wake of our success in getting to Wembley, it might be worth remembering that Jack Stacey (Exeter) and Jake Cooper (Millwall) have both helped the teams they are on loan to in getting to Wembley for the Div 2 and Div 1 play off finals.

Good luck to both of them!!

Re: Play Off Final Tickets

I get your feeling about football not being what it was. The 'prize' for winning this game has been quoted as being anything up to £200 million!! The Madejski Stadium plus every player we've ever bought in our entire history is less than that!! You can't, unfortunately, change the current financial ...

I get what you're saying, but I didn't go to the SF home game because I reckoned that if went to ET and penalties, I wouldn't get home until stupid o'clock. I spoke to my brother last night, who did go, and he said that the atmosphere was like nothing he'd experienced at a football match before. I n...

Don't want to think about moving on to a PL club, because it'snot really happening. (That's when he said 'Cross that bri...
