Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by a James Harper debut

Royal Ginger Esteves is only the third reading player to wear number 2 in the last 10 years taking it from Chris Gunter. No googling, who is the third man?

Quite a few have looked "number 2", but I don't know about wearing it.

Re: Chant Lyrics

We have Molly Malone, Bill Oddie, Sweet Caroline, Let’s All Do The Chelsea, Terry and June, the Royals Anthem, Five Parkinsons, the Big Bad Wolf, and If You Still Hate Futcher Clap Your Hands, plus we can drone on about 106.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Colchester United (h) sponsored by Callum & Sam

10 mins gone and it’s already looking like a disgrace. Club not taking the competition or us seriously, I fear. Clubs not taking this cup seriously isn’t new information, and 100% doesn’t just apply to us. Most don’t take it seriously until 1/4 final stages. Tbh, I’m fine with the club treating thi...

Re: BBC clickbaiting women's football....

The BBC is a publicy owned broadcaster with a public service remit written into it's charter to cover non mainstream subject matter. If you don't like it, subscribe to IfcukingTV instead and see how much inconsequential shit you're bombarded with. You are missing the point. I don't have a problem w...

Nope. Will await to hear what the club have to say about ST renewals. Not interested in watching on iFollow. Just isn’t the same. Yeah. It was fine when it was free, but I found I just had it open in a window and did other stuff. I certainly didn't watch it avidly. Not really caring about the end o...

Re: New FFP rules

The current way would see the owner loaning the club £50 million. I would think that owners knew that money they put in was gone, they might not be so hasty. I'm not sure any owners put money into league football clubs expecting a return. Outside of the biggest clubs, what examples are there in the...

Re: New FFP rules

Disagree with that part of FFP. There should be a way for owners to invest as much as they want so long as conditions are applied to the “investments” to stop owners, for example, funding through mortgages and loans and not taking responsibility if they “over-reach” themselves. Yeah. They should be...

Re: Veljko Paunović - Whelmgauge

Beyond comment or caring any longer. Finally are we about to go into freefall. Been teetering on the edge for a while. The soul of the club has been totally destroyed. The sad thing is that I've not been to a Reading game for six and a half months, and I've not missed it. I just don't feel the conn...

Sorry I'm not an accountant - so basically can the owners do new share issues to inject cash each year and be within FFP? No, you can't use owner investment to bypass FFP Disagree with that part of FFP. There should be a way for owners to invest as much as they want so long as conditions are applie...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

My feeling is that fans are moving from anger towards apathy. I've seen a few posts on here trying to defend the decision, but at the end of the day it's just another wild stab in the dark, hoping it works out. What's the old saying - fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. Anyone w...

Re: CONFIMRED - Veljko Paunović

It’s the pure arrogance of Dai that gets me...the arrogance that he expects his club to be promoted and the naiveity in how that goal is achieved. Chucking money doesn’t always work, in fact it rarely works in the Championship. It’s a vastly competitive league and it generally takes years of buildi...

Re: FFP? what?

What is the objective of FFP? Stop clubs spending beyond their means and screwing themselves/relying upon owners? If that is the objective, it has clearly failed. If the Dais were to walk away now and take the stadium and training ground they own with them, we'd be oxf*rd. Yet we haven't breached F...

Yes, AFC Wimbledon. When Wimbledon effectively ceased to exist, AFC Wimbledon were all intents and purposes the replacement for a folded club.
