Re: £5 Comic Relief Red Reading Footy shirt

Picked up a dozen (8 adult , 4 child) this morning. (E-BAY link to follow) The way I look at it , they'll probably fetch about £40 for the adult and £20 for children's size on average. So £400 minus my initial outlay of £60. So £340 profit. I'll give half of that to Comic Relief and pocket the other...

Re: Remaining fixtures for all our rivals.

OUr fixtures look far from easy. I remembered it being a lot easier than it is - we seem to be playing all the form teams - Preston, Bristol, Brentford, plus Norwich away, West Brom at home (who have a great away record), Boro away. I think we need to get a 6 point gap in our next 4 games tbh. Ipsw...

Re: BFTG Rotherham

Born Again Royalist You omly have to look at the bench today to see negativity on selection 4 of them were defensive, Gunter, O shea, Mc Shane plus keeper. This was a game we had to Win not defend


Who would you have added to the bench that was fit and available?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by all or nothing

Someone on here made the good point that the successful teams in this division get the ball moving forward quickly. We don’t. On the rare occasions we do get upfield quickly we look good. Yesterday’s goal being a case in point where Swift passes out wide. The ball is then progressed to McCleary who...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Rotherham United (h) sponsored by all or nothing

Yeah was rounding up, prob a little aggressively - was thinking 70 mins, so 20+ the inevitable 4/5 injury time Either way, far too early Problem No:1 As Gomes alluded to in his press conference, the players were sitting back of their own volition , it certainly wasn't a tactic. Given that Rotherham...

Re: On this day

Today is the 19th anniversary of the famous (?) HNA trip to Sunny Scunny. A gobsmacking 900 fans met at Madejski Stadium in the morning before heading up to Lincolnshire in a convoy of Nobbers to watch a dire team doing it's best to get relegated to Div 4. http://www.royals.org/piccies/scunny.jpg I...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

First half shambles down to Gomes. Poor team set-up. Cannot afford more slip-ups. Should have been dead and buried. Nope. Rino was injured and we don't have any other tenacious tough tackling midfielders to play there. His only choice was to play more balanced wide men who would track back and help...

Re: BFTG - Blackburn

Which is why no money was made available in January for Emery then.......... They are rich but do not provide significant transfer funds for their managers, haven't since they left Highbury. Keep up. Try not to take things literally either, pretty sure we all know they are a well off club that wasn...

Would 100% get one if he moves into the number 2 slot, he will currently be on peanuts. Don't forget Arsenal haven't got any money , think their priorities will be on spending what they have in the outfield positions. Time will tell. LOL. They are one of, if not the, most cash rich clubs in the cou...

Kuhl was featured in a piece on South Today last night. Still rehabbing 18 months after injuring his knee at Aldershot. Only managed to get the necessary op and post op treatment because his mother had private health care insurance (which sounded odd !). Seemed to be getting closer to fitness and c...

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

yeah, a bit baffled by the academy talk tbh Quite. After Kane (175) and Winks (58), the active Spurs academy graduate with the most league appearances for them is Kyle Walker-Peters, with 5. Tbf this is the case pretty much across the board. The only two clubs who can claim genuine academy success ...

Re: Is Kelly off?

Not to dig the boot in, but I just never really 'got' him as a player. I don't really know what he does, in terms of what would be his strong characteristics He's an ok all round midfielder - can tackle a bit, on his day a reasonable work rate. Obviously a good shot on occasions, but not more than ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

This is potentially a very big game for Reading! The performance against reading was very good and only really lacked the finishing. That was followed up by a win and then a game away to a very good team at a time when they are struggling for results. A win, or even a point in this game could reall...

Re: Stadium screens

Stadiums in America > everywhere else. Agreed. They've put the rest of the world to shame in recent years. There are a couple of new ones on the horizon over there that look great too. The designs are so innovative. Was lucky enough to see the Cowboys v Buccaneers game before Xmas. The AT&T sta...

Re: Clear out started

Reckon either Bacuna or Kelly may go With Ezatolahi still injured his loan deal may also be terminated. I think we've got to assume anyone who started against Utd isn't going anywhere. I think we can assume they're not part of the annexed 5 but I don't think it follows that they won't leave if a su...

I'll give you QPR. Millwall are just as shit as us and Man U, although we passed it well and looked confident, they did what they had to do and no more. They didn't play how a championship team would play. You're also missing out the aberration against Swansea. Whilst I think Rinomhota has helped g...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Whilst I get your points re playing style (but not Barrow...) we're not even doing the basics right. I think any decent coach/manager drilling the team could improve that area. The fear is that Gomes will make the same mistakes that Clement (and to an extent Stam and Clarke) made in not bolstering ...

Re: RUMOUR - Lewis baker

Think there is a fair amount of complacency in the two signings and a lack of acceptance as to where we are in the table. I like the fact that Gomes has a clear idea of how he wants to play - but making up a 5 point gap and playing your way out of the bottom 3 - it’s certainly brave, but I don’t th...
