Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I rarely go these days. It's not the money. It's not even necessarily having a baby (although that is a factor). It's more the total lack of enjoyment I experienced for the last two seasons I had a Season Ticket. Add in the detachment between the club and the town (I honestly hand on heart don't kn...

Re: Club v Country

I would gladly watch Reading Football Club sink into administration, disappearing without a trace, if it meant England would win the world cup.

Re: Reading F.C. programmes

Indeed, Green, indeed. I'll always remember the first time I was at the National Theatre and felt uncompelled to buy a programme (for a fairly mundane production of Timon of Athens directed by Nick Hytner). It was like a weight had been lifted from my soul. Only place I buy a programme these days is...

Re: #1 on the hit parade

No doubt about that at all. I am interested to know what the figue is the get from each sale, reckon its a ridiculously low amount. Fractions of pence. I'd be genuinely surprised if a 1000 radio plays netted them any more than about £5 each. Nah...if it's on radio one you get a lot more £10-15 per ...

Re: VAR

I think it’s largely the way we set up and make our runs that scares opposition defences into making rash tackles. We may have developed a canny knack of initiating a tussle whereby we don’t cross the line though. It’s not just Kane that’s been wrestled/fouled. Maguire, Loftus-Cheek and Stones have...

Re: R16: Colombia v England

At fault, but not because he was trying to be clever. For me it looked like he was anticipating a straight header into the top corner, and timed his jump accordingly - but it actually went down and bounced up so he was already on the way down as it was heading towards him, and could only try a desp...

Re: R16: Colombia v England

I was really impressed by Maguire. Trippier and Pickford. I especially liked Maguire's willingness to run the ball out of defence and drive the team forward during extra time. I thought Trippier was solid as hell in tricky circumstances. I thought the incredibly negative tactics from 70 mins to the ...
