Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by Andy Hughes

Injury update from Norwich: Hernandez (hernia) out for a couple of weeks, Stiepermann (hip) a doubt for Reading, Marshall (ill) misses tomorrow, with McLean, Thompson and Hanley already known absentees. Centre half Hanley a big miss for Norwich, Hernandez also, has been very good early season. Deli...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Norwich City (h) sponsored by Andy Hughes

Gunter will stay in I expect. All I want from him is 6/10 performances until Obita is back, shouldn't really be too much to ask Aluko will prob stay in unfortunately, though Sims' case is getting louder by the week. Its a tough one, didnt especially like the team we put out, but obvs you don't mass...

Re: The Demise of Reading FC (Thread 5,000,001)

Realistically, i can see the Champions League and Europa League being scrapped to make way for a 20 team Elite Europe league with a second tier of 12 teams fed from the best of the rest of the leagues. The Premier league will be a made up from steady teams like Palace and Everton. All star players w...

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: 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...

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...

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 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...
