Re: BFTG Millwall Away

Concur. Outplayed. Nothing stuck upfront. All three useless. Swift and Ejaria didn’t get into it. Once Adam departed we were looking for 0-0. Their pressure paid off. Goal was just one of those that fell kindly in the box. Second goal a break after Puscas screwed up but the game was already pretty m...

Re: When are Millwall away tickets on sale?

Hendo
LWJ Initial allocation sold out - final allocation just over 2k.


Excellent, I’m assuming the final allocation is the whole of that top tier.


Do they EVER put that lower tier on sale?

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Yes, felt like a defeat, but would have taken that result at 3pm. But really, even though our record there isn't good, I consider Reading a third division club playing above their natural level and expect a win every time we go there. Just me I suppose. Not a bad day out though. :lol: We’ve had thr...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Chelsea play in Fulham and Fulham play in Putney Pretty much this. Nah. Putney is on the other side of the river. Fulham is one of the few London clubs that play where the name suggests. Fun fact, the London borough of Hammersmith and Fulham once had three PL clubs, Chelsea, QPR and Fulham. Greedy.

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Great thread to feel young in. Wasn't even born for a lot of these fixtures. This might deserve a different thread but, yes, us oldsters will have a different perspective. From about 1968 to the early 1990s as a young man you were generally at some physical risk going to or being at a football matc...

Has anyone mentioned the 4-0 defeat at Swindon in the late 70'/early 80's ? Cold, wet, lost, seriously concerned outside the ground afterwards. 1974. All I can remember is Robin Friday looking like he was dying of asthma attack / hangover on the halfway line. Totally gubbed but they were a division...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

Common theme of getting hassled at nonleague grounds by hoodies from big clubs. I was at Hendon but don’t remember Spuds kicking off. I do remember Cardiff at Barry and Bristol City at Bridgwater - go along thinking you’re the billy big boots and all of a sudden you’re not :shock:

Re: If Reading didn’t exist

I liked the QPR of Rodney March and Stan Bowles and I imagined QPR as a successful Reading (we were Div 3/4 then) in an alternative universe - the R's, blue and white hoops, Uxbridge Rd = Oxford Rd, Springbok = Spread Eagle, Shep Bush tube = Reading West, Ellerslie Rd =Norfolk Rd, the old open Schoo...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Its irrelevant how much it is. Either pay it and go or don't pay it and stay at home. Going to football isn't something you're forced to do, you have a choice. That's a bit of a simplistic view to take. Why should football fans be blatantly ripped off because they want to support their team and eff...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Thought the England rugger fans in Yokohama were very poor second half when the team needed them.

All that way and you still don’t sing (your one song) on your big day out.

Club 1871 could teach them a thing or song or two.

Re: Keogh, I hear there might be an explicit FPP element too it too. Sacking him takes his wages off the books and if he wins his appeal that would be paid out of costs excluded from FPP calculations (presumably legal expenses rather than footballing operations). If FPP is the constraint they are u...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Thought we were second best throughout to what looked like a scratch Brentford team. CBC distribution was atrocious, like Stam had never left. Replaced by Myles at HT who gave away the crucial second goal with similar witless frigging around in his own box. Third was also a mistake leading to an OG....

Re: Footballing philosophy

Safe to say he’s probably pretty similar to Mark Hughes. Think it would be difficult to pin down Hughes’ philosophy - his Blackburn team were counter attackers based around Bellamy, Pedersen and Bentley, but his Stoke team were more about little technical players like Shaqiri and Arnautovic. So I’d...
