Re: Ngel Howe on radio

Hound is there a transcript of the interview anywhere?


Can listen to it on BBC Sounds if that helps.

Re: Finance

We are fully reliant on funding from our owners. Gourlay screwed us big time.

So whilst you may curse China for Corona, without our Chinese owners we would be in administration.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I think we’ll not see the rest of the games played. Even going behind closed doors is problematic if teams have players ill. If it is cancelled then promotion and relegation have to be declared null and void. Titles should still be awarded to teams currently top. I hope no one is top by virtue of h...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Overall a highly positive performance - well done lads! I think a good indicator of the all round quality was that I said to friends that I’m not sure who Bowen would substitute - suggesting a very rare all round strong team performance. Feared the worst when Sharp came on....... Come on urrrzzzzz!!...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

Are you sure Stoke/Luton/Preston/Wednesday/Swansea haven't? Far as I can see, all the teams above mentioned got to the same round of the EFL cup as we had and we had played a game less than every other Champ club (bar Forest) by the time of the FA Cup 3rd round because of the Forest game being post...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (h) sponsored by the magic of the cup

Disappointing to see so many seats not taken up a day before the game. I would hope we would get 18,000 but think it will be more like 15,000. Doesn't help it's midweek. I understand they had to accommodate the PL winter break in somewhere but traditionally the FA Cup should be played on a weekend ...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

You stated that only Wolves had played more games than us at that point in the season. Didn’t seem likely to be a correct statement, but feel free to explain why it was. Simple. No championship or Premier league team other than Wolves had played more games than us at that point in the season. Some ...

Simple. No championship or Premier league team other than Wolves had played more games than us at that point in the season. Some had played the same amount of games as us. None had played more. Other than Wolves. Don’t believe that is correct - for example Arsenal had played two more I believe. Had...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

Eh? What's that? What did I say? Dont recall saying that. Maybe check the old reading glasses. The Blackpool game was 3 days after Fulham, which itself was 2 days after Preston. You seriously suggesting playing the same team 3 times in that short a period?? You stated that only Wolves had played mo...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

No it isnt. Only Wolves had played more games than us at that point in the season, in the top 2 leagues. We needed changes and out of those changes Olise has emerged. The highlight of our poor period. Rinomhota and Richards too came back due to those changes. The slump is down to tactical tweaks. B...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (h) sponsored by hopeless at home

Really enjoyed that first half, very entertaining. Yiadom has been brilliant and we are very exciting offensively with this line-up. Meite’s touch is dreadful but been alright apart from that. I’d put his goal down as an own goal as bizarrely shepherded I’m by defender. Don’t look watertight at the ...

Form dipped ever since we started making 11 changes for FA Cup games. We were building some great momentum and have blown it. Gentle tinkering was all that was required. Good point that. No it isnt.

Re: Worst crowd

Football clubs HAVE to report the ticket sales for a game. So for every home game, all season ticket holders (whether they turn up or not) are counted. So Saturday's gate will be more than the Wigan gate: The usual ST holders... Barnsley will bring more than Wigan... No Sky red button... Can't see ...

WoodleyRoyal 10,088 lowest league attendance in two years


That’s not as low as I had expected.


177 from Wigan I believe so that’s 9,911 Reading fans.


Are we including non-attending season ticket holders in our attendance numbers these days?
