Re: BFTG - Charlton

A bad game for Homes, leaving two tired and ineffective strikers and brining on Boye and Meite in the wings was a massive error Agreed, Listening to BBC Berks after the game and Adie and Mick were saying the same thing. Didn't catch the Gomes interview, so not sure if he acknowleged this error or e...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

I'd like to see the clock in the hands of an independent official who isn't having to deal with all the other crap going on. I'd also like that person signal the end of the game when the game ends, rather than waiting for the ball to go into a neutral "non-controversial" position on the p...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

That's what you expect from a team that have just come up. plenty of effort but not too much skill, saw it the saw way as most on here, not in any trouble at all the 1st half after the early scare, HT thinking it looked like a 1-0 either way. Then the 2nd half we really didn`t turn up. Rafael didn`...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

Charlton played well and were really up for it. However, they are still riding high on the crest of the wave created by the way they won promotion. It will be interesting to see how they react after a couple of defeats that will inevitably come their way. At the risk of sounding arrogant, I don't th...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

That wasn't good. Not at all Actually, I have to say I enjoyed the first half. Was a really good half of 0-0, we could have had two and Charlton looked dangerous. But boy did Bowyer suss us out. They dominated the whole of the second half. We were overrun in midfield and Puscas we beyond useless. J...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

Another thing on Rafael's penalty kick routine. I believe he will save a higher than average number of PKs through using it but will look an above average clown on most of the occasions when the player taking the penalty scores. Exactly the same can be said in reverse of Taylor's (and our Pele's) pe...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I think the time has come when you have to question this now. Absolutely no noise again yesterday. I'll I could see was over enthusiastic geeks jumping up and down clapping with big smiles in their faces. Charlton out sung them easy. Huddersfield have to be the benchmark if you want to create a 'si...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

I must say the fresh cooked real potato chips were pretty damn good yesterday and very generous portions for £4.

Also liked the Ox Heart from the Peruvian stall.

Re: BFTG - Plymouth (A)

I get the Meite love in,and he works really hard to be effective. However yet again that was a poor penalty last night,and he was lucky their goalie jumped out of the way. As of last night I am not really concerned about who takes the penalties,but a tight league game is another matter entirely. I ...

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

For the first time in ages teams will be starting to worry about playing us, rather than looking forward to it. Leeds fixtures permitting, expect to see some more stupid kickoff times as Sky realise Reading FC 19/20 are an entertaining team to watch!

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

I think we all need to calm down. Yep. Way too early for all this promotion talk. It’s still August. Yeah they battered us for the first 30 mins, and although they didn't get a shot on target they still had a couple of near misses. We looked knackered, should have started Rino to give some energy a...

Re: Huddersfield (A)

Club are offering free travel so you could effectively go away and watch your team, who are showing good signs, play away at Huddersfield for £30. And people complain. If it was £25 People wouldn't be complaining so you're basically quibbling over a fiver which is less than a pint. Our fans are a j...

Re: BFTG WBA

I suspect some of the player ratings may have ended up getting subconsciously downgraded due to disappointment with the final result. I thought it was another great team performance, playing classy, attractive football. Given that, some of the ratings appear slightly low IMO. Pundits, neutrals and s...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

The ref was pretty average to poor until about 60 odd mins when he picked up what Cardiff were up to and started pulling them up for their multiple fouls Joao did fall over too easily, but he was still being constantly kicked, pulled and wrestled before the ball came to him. You're not actually all...
