Re: Will going down be a bad thing?

Less income (gate receipts/merchandise) resulting in having to pay lower wages, means attracting a different type of player, plus being in lower League means we wouldn't be competitive in trying to get the players the fans crave. In addition, reducing resources of club infrastructure (pitch mainten...

Re: Next Reading Manager

Bruce just sacked by Villa. There’s an option I suppose I honestly don't know on Steve Bruce. I thought he would do well at Villa but I just don't see him as a fit. McCarthy would fit in perfectly and Warnock, well he can get even sh+t to smell lovely in the rancid parts of the Championship. But Br...

Re: Corners

Does anyone know how many goals we have conceded from corners in the last 2 seasons and how many we have scored from corners ? It just seems that every time we defend a corner you can feel the trepidation in the team and expect the worst. Likewise when we get a corner, I rarely think that we have a...

Re: Next Reading Manager

Wouldn't be against McCarthy, just to restore a bit of order. Don't think he'd have any qualms about booting out the likes of Aluko immediately. Not sure it'd be great football to watch mind you Its got to be better than 0 shots on target for 90 minutes. Clements football just has little or no end ...

Re: Next Reading Manager

No Chance he will be sacked. Gourley will want to keep him as long as possible in the very very miniscule chance that he might turn it around. Personally the two managers I would never have wanted at this club I would take at the drop of a hat now....... The first is McCarthy, the second will not do...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h) sponsored by Michael Meaker

At least it's easy to get a signal now there's less people here. QPR should be out of site...they have moved so freely and easily coming forward I can't believe this is a McClaren team. Considering they have the worst defence in the league we have looked utterly clueless. Clement better f*cking chan...

Re: BFTG Brentford away

i thought the standard of football on show was truly woeful, from both teams. Brentford wont make play offs, we wont get relegated. Our Persian Pogba will be a shrewd loan and will go some way to shore up our midfield but boy oh boy, we need to work out how to cut out these crosses and balls across...

Re: I think I’m done - just can’t watch this lot anymore

The Premiership, the stupid International breaks, teams filling with mercenaries, and little or no local feeling, SKY, dumb start times, moving start times, too much punditry, (some) players on so much money they (some) lose the ability to relate to normal people, the media pressures, Twitter bollo...

Re: We're ManchesteROFL United, we do what we want

My word Lampard County dumping out Maureen's flops.....London and the South East go into meltdown. Odds must be cut even more on United looking for a new manager very shortly.

Re: Club developed players

problem with Cooper is he just kept making them. They were always absolute shockers as well - poor back passes straight to a forward, falling over - basically goal creating ones He always looked a talent, but maybe needed a change of scene. I liked him, but think he would have been a disaster under...

Re: Club developed players

I don’t think this would be a problem for us at all. We could name any one of 4 home grown centre backs on the bench without a problem. We’ve got several keepers who would be ok as reserve keeper. Loader currently and Novacovic next season qualify as would Smith. Obita and Richards when fit plus Wa...

Re: BFTG , Hull.

Paul Clement - 10. Ballsy team selection. Paid off for him. Finally a manager that has enough about him to drop poor performers. And if he hadn't been "ballsy" I suspect he would have been looking for another job tomorrow morning. It's a bit sad we have to suffer an infinite amount of los...
