Re: Nostalgia thread

I was there. They let out West Tip to fertilise the pitch as well.

To those not in the know, West Tip was that year's National Winner.

Re: Nostalgia thread

Yeah, I'd imaging a parachutist hitting the ground after snagging the Mad Stad roof would probably have more than a broken leg to contend with.

Re: Nostalgia thread

Hendo I know it’s relatively recent but no nostalgia thread should be complete without mentions of the helicopters on the madjeski Stadium pitch.



...or plummeting parachutists. Or was that at Elm Park?

Re: Nostalgia thread

Yep, he made some vaguely threatening comments along the line of "I know who you are" and then edited the post to remove the comments when I laughed at him because he was unable to delete it. In all honesty, proper playground level threats and not really worth the dignity of any further co...

Re: New manager Brendan Rodgers *confirmed*

I don't think he was the right man for a rebuild job given the constraints we were under at the time.

Still waiting. Come on, tell us what you know, or can we assume from your silence that a bad case of constipation has stopped you from talking?

Re: New manager Brendan Rodgers *confirmed*

I always understood that the root of his sacking was that he told Howe he needed x amount of Pounds in the transfer window because he didn't have the right type of players a mere 3 months after spending a small fortune on 8 players. Add to this, he failed to sign the one player he really wanted beca...

Re: Reading FC team of the decade

Georgian centre back signed from Skonto Riga for the academy. Unfortunately the club didn't take into account that without him being a regular full international, he'd never get a work permit so he was only allowed to play in friendlies. I suppose he qualifies as a shit signing but that was more dow...

Re: Reading FC team of the decade

JLow has had his say on the worst 20 signings of the decade. Bit unfair to include Lasha Dvali. I mean he may have been shit for us but we'll never know because the club fcuked up with the work permit.

Re: Nostalgia thread

And there we have the ultimate spineless gimp move. Make an attempt at some sort of "threat" and then edit your post to hide it. If you've got something to say, have the bollocks to stand by it. Well come on then, I'm sure everyone would love to know what you think you know. I have nothing...

Re: TV rights

Big fan of no commentary and I like the convenience of the highlights button Also quite like Crouch and Henry wandering around chatting before the Liverpool game. It was anything but slick but was nice in a 'real' kind of way Seems to be a lot of online praise for the highlights stuff and the pop u...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (h) sponsored by Martin Hicks

You got me with that argument McCleary over hits it at one end and dives, not a foul, crowd unhappy. McCleary wipes out a player on the edge of the box, foul, crowd sulk because it's given. Ref spot on both times. I know better than to engage in an argument with you. It never ends. Dammit.... But y...

Re: TV rights

I thought Tyler was a Wycombe fan. Brian Moore was a Gillingham fan (and life president IIRC) as well as a vastly over rated, butt clenchingly shit commentator with a blatant overfondness for Arsenal.

Re: TV rights

Tyldesley is such a Man Utd fanboy, he can't stop talking about them. He's also a prime example of the hyperbole over content style of commentary much loved by the modern crop of commentarybots. I think it's an ITV thing. It's a light entertainment channel and I think they are directed to "ent...
