Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

Got as far as Leicester services. Journey up from Swindon was awlfull. Continual heavy rain all the way. Just one of those things. At least I didn't all the way to the ground. Early call off was far better than the farce some years back at Sheff Utd. When I was literally outside the ground. Me too....

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

Wasn’t there a time in the mid 80s when you could ring a number and get game updates. Certainly seem to remember Reading (like most league clubs) had a dedicated number where you could get the latest news read to you very slowly after you had got through several rounds of headlines and coming is a ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Nottingham Forest (a) sponsored by Neil Webb

Anyone got any recommendations on how I can get a live link to watch this game?

Am over in Japan so decided its high time I try and watch the games if I can find a live feed. Sports bars are fun but full of egg chasing, baseball, and watching Iniesta and co (my local team) f***ing it up each week!!

Re: Ejaria vs Siggy

There’s a reason Stam had him second choice (behind the “awful” Joey - well according to most posters), Clement didn’t play him, Lampard barely played him. Because he had no influence on a game I wouldn’t say he was particularly good at positioning and defending. We still conceded a shed load with ...

Re: Ejaria vs Siggy

glen little was better at dribbling Darren Caskey was better at free kicks, penalties and eating pies. Darren Caskey could probably have scored a free kick whilst eating a pie... How many times did he curl one in and you watched the keeper dive knowing he was never going to save it... 100% agree on...

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...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Charlton Athletic (h) sponsored by Dave Shipperley

I was at Bury in the early 80's when we won for the first time in about 70 years thanks in part to at least one or two goals from the late Dean Horrix. Did he score one or two that day...? Because of that 3-2 win I have always has a slight soft spot for Bury they remind me of a northern version of w...

Well I would probably say the Mad Stad, but I did used to enjoy the 'steam' on the southbank just after we scored...!!

I really think all seater stadiums are much less fun... Get the safety thing, but steaming just after a goal is what football is about!

The Hope Akpan example too, above, showing me that playing against a team and then joining them probably isn't as rare as I thought, maybe scoring is though! Edit: Akpan signed at the same time at Nick Blackman - there can't be many other instances of a Premier League side debuting two players at t...

Re: Rumour - Ovie Ejaria

Gomes has said that a midfielder will be coming in this week and if it is him I would be happy-not that my happiness is the main concern of RFC-and he is a step up from Barrett and Loader in midfield. Barrett's only really played wide for the first team and Loader plays AM or wide or upfront. We ha...

Re: Where will we finish?

To escape relegation last season we had to ride high in the current form tables so why so many think we can't achieve mid table is beyond me and I doubt it's what Chelsea were thinking when they left the Mad Stad. We have some fantastic young players and much scope for them to thrive. FFP could unw...

Re: Where will we finish?

My thinking on this season has always that's it's one about the development of a squad and how Gomes stamps his mark on the team having had a full close season to work with them. Definitely looking forward to seeing how the younger players evolve in this team and am hoping that come the end of the s...

Admittedly when we still had Lita, Long was still very average Yup. Remember when we had the luxury of persevering with players til they came good. Long's transformation with us is why I'm a big believer in confidence and hunger over raw ability. His touch was atrocious when he first broke through,...
