Re: Kitson for England

Thank you very much for that Cookie but I was far from being the only one who thought it possible.

Re: How we stack up against the opposition in terms of signings

Our best signing in 2 years is Michael Duberry agreed, which sort of sums it up really. I like Doobs, probably our best out and out defender, limited in certain things but he'd be in my team over Sonko absolutely any day. Those players mentioned were singed for money, and in most cases are still he...

Re: Kitson for England?

Having put the same topic on here some 3 months ago (with some very mixed reponses at the time-I'll drag up those that said he would NEVER be picked just for a laugh if indeed he does get picked)I would join you others in being delighted if he is chosen for the squad let alone actually get a game. I...

Re: RUMOUR - Sidwell to return to Reading

ROFL.. Just been watching him on TV. He really looks rubbish in that team of good CL players. He looks the odd one out. The Wigan player Brown keeps on beating him to everything. Are you sure you watched the same game as me? I thought that he was back to his all-action and non-stop running game and...

Re: Coppell's latest backtrack

It is interesting that people reel off names of players on our books such as 7 centre-backs as if the numbers mean that we are somehow bound to succeed when in fact we have a mass of mediocrity. We are in a perilous position in the Premier League,have lost 4 games on the trot and have bought one pla...

Re: RUMOUR - Lita & Shorey on the way out

Prepare for announcement from the club about this being like a new signing and shows the club's determination to hang on to our best players blah,blah..... All of which might mean that all those signings that were going to happen aren't and that Nicky's form this season has been so poor that nobody ...

Re: How we stack up against the opposition in terms of signings

I think he was referring to our" honourable" club refusing to pay £20,000 or so to a very hard-up York City-details forgotten.

Re: Anybody else preparing to opt out next season?

This has been a very interesting topic and much better than the usual dross about the noise of the crowd and Reading till I die nonsense. A couple of years ago a Saints fan friend of mine said that we should make the most of the early years because unless your club can afford to spend to keep up and...

Re: "A Team so Starstruck............."

I read the same story in The Independent where Murty said that it was the first time he had played against Ronaldo and that is why he asked for the shirt.
IIRC Ronaldo waltzed round him last season to score or is my memory worse than Murts'.
What do these players do with the shirts?
What is the point?

Really enjoyable game-good to see us go for it rather than try to sneak a goal in a 4-5-1. As the rest of the season pans out I hope that today wasn't just about raising our game against a top team but more about how we can make chances against even the better sides. All of that with Convey still lo...

Is missing one day's training very important?
He will know that he and Doyle will spend all afternoon chasing long balls and that he will have to play centre-half for many of the set pieces.

What to me is most worrying is that we have had since last August/September to prepare for this transfer window and the Shorey and Lita situations were known then as well as the time that Fae (who in August would have been seen as a first team regular by now)Sonko and Bikey would be off. Also the fu...

I think the poster is right to raise the question on a board like this. Clubs near and below us in the table have sacked their managers this season and with the transfer now open for just another 19 days it is understandable for changes to be made by any club to plan for the rest of the season. We a...

I think some of you have rather mocked cmonurz's post and wrongly so. Defoe is a very good finisher but his work outside of shooting range is poor so on footballing grounds I don't think I would want him at our club. On the grounds of somebody on the fringes of the England side signing for us why no...
