What would happen if Cardiff and Derby played each other in the Playoff Final? Considering both are perennial bottlers, would the universe implode?

Really tight for those last 2 play-off places, just 4 points between 5th and 11th - so a good late run by anyone in that batch will see them make it you would think.

Bristol City's form is awful at the mo, the win against Brum being the only win in the last 5.

Typically still managed a comfortable home win against us though.

Can’t say I blame them... Alfie and Jem post about their memories at Reading a heck of a lot, if one of ours was to do that during a relegation battle I’d be pretty miffed. :lol:

File under being upset when a former player celebrates scoring a goal against you

Yet another reason to fold the internet

Yeah, player in celebrating happier times and having fondness for a previous club shocker.

At least Alfie is scoring goals. I'm all for taking the piss out of Bolton but that's massively ill judged by Jem.

Agree with both of these in fairness.

Particularly as we are stuck in the same relegation shitpile as Bolton. It's hilarious but only for being a fcuking stupid thing to do.

If we had an ex Barnsley player and he started tweeting about how he loved the boys at Barnsley, I think there'd be a fair few pissed off Reading fans. Got no issue with Edwards tweeting about Wolves. They've had a great season, he was there at the start of the season so will have played with most of the squad and we are light years away from where they are at the moment.

but a couple of hours after a 4-0 home defeat, and when your previous club is a relegation rival?

painfully stupid thing to do really. Not that I think he'll get many more minutes at Bolton anyway

So, do you think they wouldn't have lost 4-0 to the runaway champions if a player who wasn't even on the bench was going to tweet something about his old club 2 hours after the game?
