Agree with that. They'll be all over long walks on the Ridgeway and the Anglo-Saxon skeleton in Reading Museum.

Re: New Manager

Baffling appointment, fear of the unknown. As ever results will be the determinant of the new manager's time here. I'll just throw Daniel Farke's name out there. He was Borussia Dortmund's second team manager when he came to Norwich. He could actually have been sacked shortly into his tenure as wel...

No that was Lenny Godber No, Godber had previously got an O level in Geography before being sent to Slade Prison. You'll thank me for that if it ever comes u...

Re: New Manager

If Castro comes in it could herald a revolution at the club. Has anyone done that one yet?

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Second half in particular was pathetic and I just don’t think we are as fit as we should be. Some of ththe passing, awful, movement awful, and desire to win non existent. If we don’t get the right manager and team, we are going down, and sadly absolutely deserve to. Just saw on Sky points gained si...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Didn’t take long for Marshall to lose the dressing room. Utterly witless display, odd selections, normal service in fact.

Re: New Manager

If Watts' piece is true, and he is usually pretty reliable, how does a super-agent dictating who the new manager and coaching team may be. mainly motivated by money no doubt, qualify as being a return to the 'Reading way?'

Re: Clement sacked!

Yes I don't harbour any ill feeling towards Clement either, always seemed a decent sort. However, ultimately there didn't seem to be any improvement on the way or vision to take us on a step. Some of his selection decisions were baffling, particularly over Aluko. It always seemed to be one step forw...

I long for the 70s when we would sign a player simply because they could 'run fast.'

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Those possible nicknames suggested in the 70s, The Blues or The R's, are genius. I honestly don't know how people come up with these things sometimes.

Re: BFTG Leeds

Agree with most of the comments above. Watched it on TV and the main thing I took from the game was the performance of the young Rhino lad. He looks a real prospect to me. When a player unsullied by failure comes in like the young Rhino it gives the other players a boost. Particularly thought that Y...

Re: Clement

I did. I was referring to your comments above. The conversation was about Chris Gunter moving to the MLS. The point is that would suit his playing style and lifestyle. Do you need a diagram? "Lifestyle". I'd be very careful with what you're saying. That is all. I assumed he meant sipping ...

Oh dear. Almost as poor as some of the comments about that ‘being football’ What exactly was he trying to achieve? I love watching the opposition supporters positioning themselves directly in front of a steward.... Pathetic. Bristol City are up there with the worst away supporters we get, far worse...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by Nigel Adkins last game

Agree with the previous poster who said it’s difficult to see what we are trying to achieve. What was the game plan tonight? Search me. Birmingham sat off us in the first half like an away team which nonplussed us. No attacking threat. Can’t see why the Saints fans rate Sims so highly, very poor ton...

In its way, that was as depressing as the Norwich game. We played poorly but you have to start questioning some of the manager’s decisions now. Kelly was awful but why play him so high up the pitch.
