Left when the fifth went in, jumped on a bus and now back home. I'm claiming the fastest ever BFTG thread.

I kept getting hilarious texts from my Norwich supporting 'mates' asking whether I'd left yet so I decided to take their advice.

Surely we should give up on Grabban and Mutch now, they've had over 2 months to integrate and get fit and are still sh*te. Would rather see academy players get a chance

Surely this must be the final 'nail in the coffin' for this possession based football .. utter shite ! .. one would hope the players do a 'Bristol City' and reimburse all those who made the journey too ..

Currently 4th in the Championship with a squad many thought would seriously struggle to make the top half. Get a grip.

Yeah, what a load of shit, there's no way it could ever sustain a team for a season transforming them from relegation fodder to playoff conten....oh...

Back in Shenfield after leaving at half time .
The penalty was a surprise to everybody NO appeals from players or fans the bigger joke was there sixth goal we had several chances to clear but failed .
Finally Mutch is an absolute joke , shameful mercenary , never again should he be let near the first team.
Absolute disgrace

So what , take a look at the league table, Defeat means nothing today, We lost 3 points . did not make any difference in play off teams,
It was bound to happen once in a READING WAY season.

Apart from all those teams outside the playoffs who gained ground on us as result of us losing...

We could still fall out of the playoffs you know?

In 20 away games. That's now 42 goals conceded and a goal difference of minus 18.

Premiership here we come. :?

This is why I kinda want to finish 5th or 6th. Rather than get trounced away in the first leg, get a win at home first time around then just shove 11 men behind the ball in the away leg. :lol:

My thoughts exactly. I'd rather finish 5th and try and get a 1-2 goal headstart against Leeds or Huddersfield
