Re: Greenland

Also thought they couldn't join due to having an astroturf pitch.

Have improvements in astroturf technology meant this is no longer a blocker?

Re: Greenland

Have they applied already? Thought they were going to do it on Greenland national day (21st June).

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

1 year anniversary just passed 160k passengers used the station in the last year. Much more than expected. I come into Reading from Basingstoke a couple of times a week & the station has got steadily busier as the year has gone on Are people using it as a park and ride or is it down to increasi...

Re: The Retained List

Given the cost of running a club of Reading's size in League 1 ( I reckon it will be around £10M net loss), I can't see how any new owner would not target promotion next season - anything else is just creating a bigger financial mess. I mean you'd have to question the commitment of any owner who sa...

Re: Football Rel8d Gripes

No drinks within sight of the pitch.

We've got to find a way past this - especially as the fan base gets more middle class.

"Potential banana skin"

It's a potential slip up, or a banana skin. Not all banana skins are slipped on, very few in fact. So you're saying it has the potential to be a potential slip up? What's that all about?

Re: University research on the role of football in response to military conflict

Sutekh As with all these surveys we're asked to complete it would be nice if you could share the findings with us on here when they are available.

You'd think wouldn't you.

The Royal Forester
Green TBF we pass the baton on at that point, albeit we're still invested supporters from the sidelines.

Which group(s) will the baton be passed onto?

Take your pick (of one of many in financial strife)

SBWD statement following today's news is kneejerk and not for the first time. They are complaining the club hasn't announced who the proposed buyer is, really think they need to get individuals who understand this stuff to check their statements through. Can you put their statement up on here pleas...

Re: #SellBeforeWeDai (to someone fit and proper)“ supporters action group

Agree with all that but I'll cut them quite a bit of slack for getting organised and getting some decent media coverage for various stunts.

Compare that to STAR, who as recently as a few months ago were asking fans not to protest.

WestYorksRoyal Imagine how shit it will feel if it doesn't happen now. The day I thought we were selling Bearwood is the low point to date, but this would top it.

I'd be amazed if this saga didn't have a couple more massive disappointments in store TBF.

Re: TAKEOVER *NOT* CONFIMRED

I'm also bemused as to how Wycombe could make it work financially, it's worth 3 times as much as the club. Given the limitations on use. I wonder if they planned to rent it out as event space in the summer. Certainly under UEFA FFP rules money spent on infrastructure, youth development or training ...

You have a strange definition of "central" London - it doesn't even have a London postcode.
