Maneki Neko Blue collar street food doing the match day food stalls. What a ruddy great idea that is.


C1871 season ticket holder runs the company. So it's nice knowing where the money's going too (i.e. to someone local).

Think global, eat local I always say.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

well yes but getting a better rate =/= paying a premium which was the point previously being made Anyway, I've done some research through some unashamedly ITK pals and as I now understand it there's no such late/early premium anyway. These contracts work as so: [*]Kit manufacturer (KM) provides £X ...

Hendo
Forbury Lion Done

Interesting to see how many get the Ferry and/or Tram to home or away games.


Maybe those who support Southampton or Portsmouth who live on the Isle of Wight.

Arsenal fans still living in Woolwich

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

If I'm honest with you windermere - it's not the distance to the station I'm worried about. It's the fact that it'll probably be an infrequent service (maybe two four-coach trains an hour?) that won't be able to cope with the demand - several thousand supporters appearing at the same time. In this r...

This is Reading, not many do If even 1% of those who regularly attend Reading's matches answer the survey, he'll have more than enough - from just this one team.

Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

The average fan just doesn't appreciate that the typical wage bill for championship standard players is far more than what a typical championship club raises in revenue. I presume you’re better informed than the average fan though, EPK? What do you put that down to? How can others attempt to emulat...

Re: Explain like I'm five: our FFP crisis

To anyone criticising FFP as maintaining the status quo, what is the alternative? Allowing clubs to borrow loads, get promoted at the expense of clubs who try to do it properly, and create a situation where every club has an incentive to unsustainably spend money on players they cant afford? You do...

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

Fish finings are often used to filter beer.

You're not consuming animal products, but animal products are used in the making of the product. I wouldn't have a problem with it if I was a vegan, but then I'm not a vegan.
