Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

so Japp prefers players who can play in mulitple positions but not specialised in any particular position. Now it makes sense why sometimes players play what we consider out of position. Only one problem with that is I'm guessing that academy players are not taught to play like this so that why he ...

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

Nah, not buying the anti 60 minutes stuff. Me neither. It makes serious sense to do this and to link it to a law that requires the ball to be out of play before the final whistle is blown. We'd get more football ( see the comment above re the amount of time the ball is currently in play) and there ...

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

Most are fine, also don't like the penalty one. Not sure on playing on until the ball is out of play.... the ball can stay live in football for a hell of a long time. Once the wining team knows that time is up they will do all they can to get the ball out of play. If it is a draw then both teams ma...

Re: More possible FIFA fiddling to ruin the game

passing to yourself at a free-kick, corner and goal-kick - makes sense, quick restart to a game, could benefit the attacking team a stadium clock which stops and starts along with the referee's watch - no problem here, everyone knows how long to go. allowing the goal-kick to be taken even if the ba...

Re: New pitch

But I can speak English properly. Sentences shouldn't start with a conjunction, so although you may be able to speak proper English, it would appear your grammar needs some additional work. B- The sentence starts (apparently) by advising that I am a ****. So, if we are to be a touch pedantic my 'bu...

It won't effect them at all. It might, however, affect them.

Re: Ins and Outs – 2017/18

For me I think we need a couple of full backs and a new striker as a priority. If we're going to look to play with 3 at the back then we need wing backs who are capable of getting forward and supporting the attacks. The Playoff final was a good example as while solid enough defensively, Chris Gunte...

Re: The Premier League South

So if we go up the prem will look very southern biased with 10 southern and 10 northern teams? Well, as there is more to this country than just the North and the South, no. All of those teams listed could hold a strong claim to being southern but I suspect that Leicester, Swansea, West Brom would a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Huddersfield Town v Reading, Play Off Final, 29 May 2017 (Wembley)

Can we assume that reference to Cooper and Hurtado was a tad tongue in cheek?

(Although I do think the latter might well feature next season).

Re: RFC hooliganism?

Fortunately the vast majority of Reading supporters are not brain-dead chav goons who go to football games to do anything they can but actually watch the game. Not having a hooligan problem is viewed by most as a positive!

Re: Play Off Final Tickets

The Madejski Ticket Office manager was interviewed on BBC Berks yesterday. One of the questions was why the SEE ticket site shows concessions as being for 65 years old and up, while the Wembley page says that it is for 60+. His answer was that Reading have stuck to normal ticket pricing policy for t...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Fair point. Very much like his sister in the respect really, all fancy flicks and touches but lacking in any consistent end product. Women's football is actually kind of like Fulham.

Re: Play Off Final Tickets

Even without contacting the ticket office I think it was pretty clear what they meant. After all, if you could only buy for an existing member/ST holder we would never get rid of 38,000 tickets would we?
