Bolton - Lose - 11 pages of posts
B'burn - Draw (felt like a loss) - 14
Villa - Draw (felt like a win) - 4
Wed - Loss - 13
Preston - Win - 4
Norwich - Loss - 11
Hull - Win - 5

Draw your own conclusions on the mindset of your average Hobnobber!

I'm keeping my RTG firmly on.

this is why internet social media stuff is aimed towards outrage. it generates more clicks, more interactions, and therefore it pays better.
which is why we are all going to hell in a hand cart

As the wise man above me said failure, pain, agony, suffering and chaos sell. Nobody cares about good news anymore, there are probably thousands of great news stories that are never brought to our attention each day because good news just isn't interesting. Notice how not once do you hear about the benefits of Brexit (not saying there is a whole heap of it but in any situation there are positives)? It's because the good stuff is irrelevant to the media, sells no papers and gets no clicks.

Those passports we would need to use to board the flights to Spain which will be about triple the cost post Brexit?

Reading win and we're all too busy out partying and celebrating to logon to the interweb.

Reading lose and we're too depressed to go out so we stay in and logon to hobnob.

In business, the upset/angry customers tend to be the most vocal. Those who are happy with the service tend not to shout about it too much.

With the exception of Blackburn, don't the lower page counts coincide with away games? it's only Monday moring, Hull will rack up a few more.

My thoughts too. I'm sure most of the BFTG blackburn comments are about McShane.

It will be concerning for our Europa League 2020 campaign

Hardly a shock. Same in most forms of life, bad news gets people more engaged. Remember from doing the podcast a few years back and I think something like 8 out of 10 most popular podcasts were either after heavy defeats or during slumps in form. When we were doing well, less people listened.

Never had one of those. Quite looking forwards to it!

It’s a fair point. It suggests some posters only decide to post to complain about the club. Miserable oxf*rd. I was surprised more didn’t post after the Hull game which turned out to be really enjoyable.

Is it not common sense that a loss or poor performance evokes more debate, dissection and analysis than the opposite? Far more to talk about than “yep played well today. That’s more like it”.

That just seems obvious.
