I fear it might not be. He's very injury prone and has issues with his knees I believe.

Re: The Madejski Stadium is on fire

Well if this is all hypothetical then Antons missus if they turned up in the off chance and his will which having made sure he was in the fire, left the entire contents to me and I'd then p+as the lot up the wall in a Man City type manner, ensuring at least the premiership trophy. NA might have to b...

Re: New Poll - Adkins

Keep. Everyone can point fingers at this and that but there are problems in lots of areas at the club and they need to be sorted out. Injuries, ownership, players not producing and yes, tactics. The club needs to take a long look at itself at the top first and decide what they want. If they want pre...

Re: January Transfer Window Investment?

Certainly some loaned players would be nice. Frimpong is rotting away in North London. If the Gooners sign a front man we could take Bendtner till the end of the season. At the back? What about asking if young Bertrand might want to come back as well. Doesn't seem to get any chances under Maureen. ...

Re: Replace NA with who?

The team is in transition. Ownership all over the place. We have a load of injuries. We are in the top ten. We have potential. We have a manager with a proven track record. We have a manager who has only had one transfer window. We have a manager with a track record for producing intelligent teams ...

Re: Boro Match Thread

10 points off automatic promotion, 1 point off the playoffs. Christ it ain't that bad. There's a lot of footy to play. Let's see what the next transfer window brings before we hit the panic button.

Re: AVB sacked - could this lead to the home coming of the S

Durrrr no. And even if Spurs did sell him there are a shedload of clubs above us that would buy him in the Prem. I suspect he will be back in their first team s he's easily one of their best performers.

Optimist here. Dear Pissed Off, please f@ck off because if you want to support a team that's constantly in the premiership and winning things, which sounds about right, then Chelsea ain't that far as stressed by another previous post.

Re: Meeting Reading players

Met a few but the one that sticks in my mind was a then manager Charlie Hurley.
Watched me play in a primary school Clifford Cup final match in the mid 70s in Bracknell.

The were BMs players. It was a pretty hopeless position when Adkins joined. Injuries and players not good enough generally we knew we were down by February, decent run or not that we were on.
