Re: Congratulations, you are the new Reading manager

I would tell the owners from the start that i'm planning for the long term. Don't expect any major success in at least the first couple of seasons. If you're going to sack me if I lose a few games in a row then don't bother hiring me in the first place. My goal is to slowly build up a team of playe...

Re: Thank you to those that used Parson Street

infoman Does help to get a train station(eventually) constructed nearer the ground.

Could it not be argued the other way round - if it proves a popular option then the rail links are already fit for purpose.

Re: local info saturday from a Bristol City fan

"Don't park here!" "Don't drive that way, you'll get lost!" (as if we're thumbing through an A-Z while at the wheel) "Make sure you get off at THIS station" A well meant post I'm sure - and if you look hard enough there might be a couple of interesting tips in there but...

Re: Worst start for many years.

If the OP is arguing that a teams performance over the first 10 games (or indeed any 10 games) is strongly correlated to your performance over 46, then I don't think you need to delve too deeply into the stats to agree. Soz, Green, not sure that holds up. Take 2011-12: After 10 games, we were on a ...

Re: Bristol City (A)

Does that trouble you then?

Would you pay more than you think is reasonable to "save face"?

If so I suggest you're part of the problem - clubs can charge what they like and they know chumps will pay it.

Re: Bristol City (A)

Honestly if you think it's too expensive (and at £32 I'm inclined to agree) then don't go. Same as any other event or form of entertainment. I can't see why people get so het up about it.

Re: Unauthorised data gathering / Texting during games

Can't see anything there which would stop you texting or posting to social media as long as it doesn't contain photos, video or audio taken in the ground. There's also this, but it doesn't apply to mobile phones. 19 Save as set out in paragraph 16 above, no person (other than a person who holds an ...

Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

The sale shouldn’t Be an issue, it’s the valuation that will catch people. The EFL rules state that any transactions must be at a genuine market rate. This is in the context of supplying goods and services and sponsorship but would be relevant for sale of assets as well. As long as we sold the grou...

Re: The Forest is Green!

The Enfield Royal71 Terrible loss to a good team. Bad goalkeeper error

And another red card - how many is that already this season?

A sign of the kind of fighting spirit the team needs, or a symptom of a lack of a discipline and focus that's failing to be addressed in training?

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

From Despair To Where? In other countries, clubs have to provide assurances of financial viability at the start of each season in order to compete.
