Re: On this day

Well, it was a couple of days ago, rather than this day, but the ride on the bus post Huddersfield was the longest journey. Flying to Vancouver is minutes by comparison.

What a flat performance. The grey drizzle at the Mad Stad at the end said it all. Still have a big flag from that day. Somewhere.

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

Linking to other people seems to be a problem, they need an account first which isn't what was advertised Yep, so to “conveniently add my other family members” I need to set an account per head, even though my son isn’t about to buy anything soon. Different. But hey, ludicrously cheap STs make up f...

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

Hmm, do I pay £375 to renew in the Lower West of save £76 and join club 1871 for £299? Not sure the family/Eamon Dolan stand should be more than the Club 1871 area, Isn't the view is about the same but the opposite end? If you do switch, I hope you’re going to contribute to the noise and not just s...

Well “Who the Fcuck are we” could be changed to “Who are we fckuking”, to take the climactic bit, and then the chorus of “We hate Swindon, we hate the Swindon” would cover the vegetable requirement, no?

Re: Rumour - Liam Kelly

Meaning you want our options to be Ward, Southwood and 1 other (preferably Martinez?) next season? Correct. Martinez/new keeper - Southwood - Ward I would love if Ward was an amazing keeper because his name is perfect for it. Well Seaman would have been ideal for a Durex advert, but he did all righ...

Re: Luke Southwood

Zip I was listening to Radio Wales last night hoping Wrexham would get through.


Saw it on BT Sport (wife’s from just outside Wrexham) and Southwood looked decent..though not sure he was fouled for the goal not standing.

Re: The Danny Loader conundrum

Bit of an ask to send a teenage lad over to the continent. LOL, The Lads agent was trying to get him a permanent move to Germany before the Club gave him an extended contract, Loader himself was up for the move. The best I’ve seen him play was against the U23-39 Bayern Muenchen 2nd team. He was a r...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

An excellent point. Just one gripe. Was it really necessary to boo HRK. Quite a few of our fans booed him when he was on our team, so unsurprising. The nightmare WAS him scoring. (though I kept my boos for the star ref). Gayle didn’t fall over on the half-way line, and the genius ref didn’t point t...

Still trying to decide on an acceptable approach to tomorrow. Other than a sense of dread. Can’t fully anaesthetise at the Nag’s beforehand, as I’m going with my son.

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Typical Team Board. The guy has turned us around and there are if, buts and even people seeming to be preparing for him to eventually fail. I doubt that any Reading supporter wants a manager to fail. The club isn't in the best of financial health. Re-establishing ourselves as a competitive Champion...

You're taking this way too seriously, but should probably bear in mind not everyone wants to support in the same way. Absolutely. My son & I moved our STs to the Y’s just because the ED North stand we just couldn’t contribute to. I can’t knit, and have no idea who makes the best dishwasher. Oh,...

Despite my reservations about Gomes tactical awareness. Gomes comes across as a great man manager. Biggest improvement is the atmosphere. The cohesive spirit that bonds the players to the terraces is growing with every game. Kelly's lack of game time shows he's not afraid to make tough decisions ei...
