Re: Rival Watch

Disagree. Melt is a pretty good insult. It’s both patronising and hard hitting without being vulgar or particularly rude. It's not as good as "flannel" I saw someone on Twatter call someone a "salad" the other day Seriously if people are repeating this kind of crud from reality ...

Re: Tevreden Out, Nani In

Is BT leaving a big blow to the club?? I'm more concerned about the scouts and youth managers moving on than BT. If Brian said he was leaving months ago but would stay on until a replacement has come in, I take it that means the club have waited for the replacement to come in and then recruit replac...

Re: Rival Watch

What the hell am I reading?! This is the same club that denied us promotion in '95 and you're wishing them well? F u ck Bolton Wanderers. If any club can't sort it's own finances then they deserve everything they get, regardless of the manager. I can't believe you two - you are not supporters. Plea...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (a) sponsored by the season starts here

Would love Aluko to be a bench option only. Let Sims run there left back into the ground and then bring on Aluko, is the only time I would accept him to play. Prefer a 4 5 1 formation away from home. Not sure Bacuna and Swift can run a midfield on their own so Meyler needs to come in to add some iri...

Re: Clement

How have we ended up with uninspiring squad that no one fears? How, after several years and several managers are we now left wii 15-20 players who are all fairly uninspiring when put together? I do think that uninspiring and poor performing players can turn it around. I'm just worried that often th...

Re: Clement

We really have been utter dogsh1t for quite a while haven’t we? Didn’t actually realise we were as good as that suggests in the first 20 games last year though Shakes head at how bad we are now. Just named what I reckon our starting 11 should be for Preston and it looks so stale. It’s only Septembe...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I seriously think one of the biggest negatives for me is the International breaks. Once we could settle down to a season, get into a rhythm. Now, no sooner do we settle than we seem to have a fortnight off. I HATE the Interlull What makes this international break even worse, Sky get more money and ...

Re: Team for Preston (A)

Meyler - 2 (WTAF?) That's harsh. In his time at RFC JVB was a walking red card or gifted goal. Meyler is a step up. If Meyler is a step up then we really are fukked. I put Meyler in my team due to lack of knowledge of the new guy and dont trust Bacuna there. Hoping the Iranian gets up to speed soon...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

The drinking culture around football has diminished drastically especially at the Mad stad. Would the fan base be stronger if, when the stadium was built, a few pubs / bars was also considered? I am not saying the football would be better but going to matches would be more bearable. And as a fan hav...

Re: Madejski Out

If sir John had just taken the risk and invested in our great 2006 side we could have been a Bournemouth or Brighton, instead he was scared of the huge costs of sustaining PL survival. I still don't believe all that TV money went out on wages, Bournemouth get crowds of 11.000 for Christ sake. it wa...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I was having a think about this stuck in traffic yesterday. Why are the club not doing more offers on home games, especially the ones they know full well are going to be quiet? The Bolton one for example. They are doing NOTHING to incentivize people to turn up to the games they know will be a strug...

Re: Clement

think as I mentioned earlier, imo its not been a case of who he has been allowed to brought in that is causing the issue, more who they couldn't ship out. I don't have a huge amount of sympathy for the performances so far, other than the generally sh!t mentality about the place. He inherited a losi...

Re: BFTG - Weds H

That back 4 is our strongest defence. As has been mentioned here ad nauseum, the issue is midfield particularly central midfield - sort that and we *should* be ok. I would say its the wings as the non tracking back ethic they have and outrageous positional play (aluko) stretches out the middle allo...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Dont think there a culture loss just at Reading, pretty sure its across the whole country. People just cant be arsed to go to the game when there is already so much footy on TV. We also have a generation of hatred towards football in those oxf*rd rugby fans who complain about the money and prima don...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield Wednesday (h) sponsored by oh no, not another Saturday home game

Nonsense. Harper and Sidwell created loads. And Harper was usually the one who started us off by getting it wide and into space early in the first place. It's Legs and Jem that were extremely bypassed. So playing down the wings, yeah? No they created plenty. For a start they scored 17 goals between...

Do wonder if we’ll see us play that line up, but with Meite alongside Bod and sims and Barrow on the flanks. Would give us the option to just play old school get it to the pacy wingers to put in crosses. Reckon it might work at times Yep, by pass the middle. Pretty sure in our most successful team ...
