Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

The formation won't help because the entire team is fundamentally disorganised and disjointed. You defend well by defending as a unit and squeezing the space the opposition has in your defensive third. We do none of this. Our CBs are constantly split and miles apart because we try to play our. Our ...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Good luck to any management team stupid enough to come to our club and face the Dellor clones (clowns) who expect success in well less than a season, regardless of the challenges the club faces on and off the pitch! Those thinking Gomes will be gone if we lose at Bristol are deluded. Fortunately I d...

Re: Bristol City (A)

While the train goes direct to Bristol, neither Parkway nor Temple Meads is anywhere near the ground. Best option is a train to Parkway, then change to a local train service to Parson Street. From there it is a 20 minute walk or you can get the bus. If you go to Temple Meads then get a taxi from th...

Re: Bristol City (A)

So I've just paid £32 (plus £1.50) for a crap seat in N36 but I see that tickets for home supporters (non members) in the equivalent stand at the far end of the ground S24 v Wigan are just £27. How do they get away with this? I thought clubs weren't allowed to charge visiting supporters more than ho...

Re: Bristol City (A)

I didn't realise that to add insult to injury, our own club add £1.50 to the already extortionate £32, even if you collect the ticket in person from the ticket office! :twisted:

Re: CONFIRMED - Yakou Meite

I feel that tieing players to 4 or 5 years deals like Meite and Swift has very few benefits. The players motivation, hunger and standards will decrease as they know they are guaranteed to be on a big contract for years to come. The efforts of the players have been questioned for the past few season...

Re: BFTG Boro

I was listening to the Berks commentary during the game and any of this "Sack Gomes" nonsense starts fairly and squarely at Tim Dellors door, I couldn't believe it when shortly after we conceded he began musing along the lines of "I'm not saying he should be underpressure but do you ...

Re: Bristol City (A)

It costs more to watch Reading at Bristol City than any away fan pays to watch their team in the premier league. Surely that’s not right. Is there nothing STAR can push the club into here? I think it's more a case of the EFL and their member clubs needing to do the right thing for their fans. In th...

Re: Anton took money!!

I heard it on BBC Berks or at least part of it. SJM said there were warning signs early on, There was a clause that mean't the club reverted back to SJM, However the club that reverted back to him was in debt to 3rd parties and SJM coughed up something like £1.6m to keep the club going and that the...

Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

Woukd be interesting to know the terms of the lease wouldn’t it ! We certainly did a lot of remediation work when the ground was built but it is still a landfill site with methane produced and you’d think there would be restrictions on what it could be used for. Not sure valuing it as potential dev...

Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

The sale shouldn’t Be an issue, it’s the valuation that will catch people. The EFL rules state that any transactions must be at a genuine market rate. This is in the context of supplying goods and services and sponsorship but would be relevant for sale of assets as well. As long as we sold the grou...

Re: Phil Parkinson is waiting.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Be interesting to know how and when the data was collated. Ours have only been on sale for 3/4 weeks. And the fact that in kids sizes most of the home kit is out of stock until mid September No women's sizes (home and away) with Casumo as sponsor until 'some time in September' either. Quite clear n...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

On the BBC Berks coverage Mick Gooding mentioned that when he and Jimmy Quinn we're managers of Reading at the start of the season after the playoff loss to Bolton, they wanted to sign Clive Mendoca. The chairman asked them for two budgets, one to reach the playoffs again and one to finish mid-tabl...

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...
