Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Thank goodness the dreadful decision by Marriner not to give a penalty made no difference to the result. The mighty reds go marching on but have a difficult game away at Chelsea next week but win that and I think they will now become favourites with Laporte out for City for 6 months. How bad is Joh...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by a Simon Cox chip

I hope Miazga is back today because, although McIntyre has done ok with his few opportunities, I think we need a solid and physical back 3 to make our system work.
The only weak link so far has been Moore but hopefully he gets back to where he was a couple of seasons ago.

Re: England - the future....

I think I'm totally done with watching England qualifiers now.

At least when I watch a Scotland qualifier I'm not 100%* sure of the result *Prolly about 85% I t...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

(Raphael) Did I see it right (wasn't 100% sure from my angle of view), but it looked as though he decided not to stand in the middle of the goal and instead to one side leaving a much wider opening on one side that. The Charlton penalty taker accepted the invitation to score on that side and in it ...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

you've played sides who are likely to be in a relegation battle and Arsenal at Anfield (guaranteed 3 points) Just out of interest how do Liverpool beat teams who park the bus? You haven't really got a Pirlo/Scholes/Iniesta type player so does Salah's dribbling do it? I suppose you have good crosser...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Calm down...you’ve played Southampton and Norwich and looked shakey at the back You ok m9? It's a fair summation of the opening couple of weeks. Liverpool's shakiness at the back has delivered a 100% record and a Super Cup, and City would be on nine points too but for VAR shenanigans. you've played...

We have had applause/silence for relatives of the club's owners in recent times so to do so for a fellow football club doesn't seem such a bad idea to me.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

You look at the early weeks of the PL and it "could" be a great season there as about 18 of the clubs seem capable of beating each other - but Liverpool and City only look like dropping points due to their own wastefulness - the gap between Liverpool and Chelsea last season was 25points -...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

As somehow nothing has been said about this season's 100% record so far I thought I might express my view that they could actually stay at the top for the rest of the season.
Although early in the season the Mighty Reds and City look again to be miles better than the rest.

percy_freeman My daughter has just moved next door to Jimmy Wheeler. Before my time even but a true Reading Legend.


Jimmy's mum and dad used to live a few doors away from us and I was friendly with his kid brother Frank.

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Bury were always a bit of a bogey team for us-we lost at home to them on the day that I got married-but I hope they stay in existence as I hate to see long-standing clubs in trouble. Once again it is the fans that suffer because of mismanagement and we know what that is like-not just recently but in...

Re: BFTG WBA

I think it was a good time to play WBA as their own team has been changed quite a bit with the loss of both Rodrigues and Gayle difficult to replace-apparently they were a bit lucky to get a win at Luton. I'm not convinced by them but I am getting convinced by us. Although WBA had quite a bit of pos...

Thanks for the replies-I must have willed the 3rd one in the first half-my bet had been Reading to score 1+ goals and 5+ corners. :cry: Score 1+ goals from corners or just in general? No, the odds were 7/5 for us to get 1 or more goals plus 5 or more corners. I thought it was good value as we do of...
