Re: VAR

I think it should be like cricket, where each team is allowed an appeal or two per game. If something has happened and the ref can't tell, then they can call for it, but at the moment it's being used too much. Half of the problem is the amount of time it takes to make a decision as well. It's farcic...

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

Zip until season 2017/18 is out of the three year FFP calculations money will be tight.

So, if we somehow survive this season, the situation should ease.

At the moment though, there are signs that we could be 2019/2020s Ipswich.

Re: Champions League & Europa League 2018/19

I’m no Spurs fan but I agree with him. (That said, I didn’t hear what he specifically said and yes, he is a bit of an irritating knob.) I appreciate the whole arm in unnatural position thing and that the laws of the game say.... etc. etc., but the penalty of a penalty being awarded after an acciden...

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

I've no idea why accounts couldn't have been passed over automatically. It's a basic IT task. Really shoddy from the club. Not sure about "simple", system migrations can be a minefield - just ask TSB. If you are moving huge amounts of data, yes. If you are just setting up contact details ...

Re: Safe standing progress

I see Wolves are now installing Rail seating, believe Spurs have it in their new stadium, what chances of us bringing it in for the South stand as an experiment? Bugger all, the rake of the stadium is supposedly not compatible without some fairly heavy duty renovation iirc. The club is supposedly o...

Re: Pre season tour

paultheroyal Club will think they have softened the blow somewhat with at long last a decent home friendly lined up. Should be the biggest crowd we will have all season lol.

Probably Bournemouth, Brighton or Watford.

Re: The Non - League thread

Today's play-off finals

Salford 3-0 AFC Fylde
Warrington 2-3 King's Lynn
Met Police 2-3 Tonbridge Angels

Just 8049 at Wembley for Salford v Fylde, and Salford probably had nearly 3/4 of those.

Re: Berks and Bucks Senior Cup 2018/19

Very poor performance from Reading, sadly. Didn't really get going at all. It'll probably be a good learning experience, in terms of where it's a good idea to pass the ball around or try little stepovers, and where it's not. The frustrating thing is when they looked to get at Slough with pace, they...

Re: The Non - League thread

Bracknell were horrific and can have no complaints. Need a bigger, more physical side and fitter defenders. Cheshunt had a 6'8 striker who killed them all game long. Impressive. I didn't think he was that good. He had height (and a lot of it), but that was about it. I thought the game was won in de...

Re: The Non - League thread

Bracknell suffer stage fright and lose their final 0-3 at home to Cheshunt. I should have stayed away from Larges Lane and done Bracknell a favour. I am not their lucky charm. That's the 9th time I've seen Bracknell play there, and I've never seen them win. In fact I've only once seen them concede f...

Re: How not to win support for your cause

Those quick to jump on Rose miss his point entirely as to the amount of money in football - he was contextualising the triviality of the fine handed to them. To compound it, wasn't the fine for flares being set off, not the racism? The problem is that the old duffers who run the game really don't g...

Re: The Non - League thread

Good luck! Hope they tell everyone on arrival to ensure the crowd organises themselves so smallest are at the front, medium in the middle and tallest at the back otherwise only about 150 will see the game. Mind you, there’s only space for one row of people behind the goal so that’s not going to be ...

Re: The Non - League thread

They were going to go and build a multisport facility next to Larges Lane and sell off the current ground. There has been a lot of opposition to this though from residence and it's all gone very quiet on that front. Residents have caused no end of shit recently. Larges Lane will 100% be sold though...

More farcical arrangements in the play-offs, this time in the Southern League Premier Central, where both semis have been postponed due to Stratford Town apparently using an illegible player. A points deduction could see Coalville take their place. The worst part is that apparently this offence took...

Re: Reading FC Womens World

AthleticoSpizz Just 174 fans watch Everton beat Reading 3-2 today, we finish fifth.

Meanwhile, nearly five and a half thousand watch Arsenal win the league title at lowly Brighton.

given that is seems unlikely that Arsenal would have taken a few thousand fans to the game, why the huge crowd?

I'd love someone to show me where I've got it wrong, but it looks to me like Heywards Heath, Bedford Town and Sutton Coldfield Town (the last two are in the same division) will go into the play-offs knowing they can't be promoted, as none of them can possibly one of the five play-off winners with t...

Re: The Non - League thread

Bracknell winning 6-0 in final minutes. An important win, as it means Bracknell are guaranteed to go up if they win the play-offs, as only three other step 4 divisions have play-off entrants with more points per game. It's a mad system this year, which will probably see at least one play-off final ...
