Feeble Excuse. Call yourself a fan?

I know. I'll get better. The transport strikes here will end soon and I should absolutely pay a few hundred quid to get over to a game in Blackpool on a work night. No better use of 2 days annual leave. I certainly wont make the mistake of asking how Reading did when I have the disposable income to travel between countries with just a few weeks notice.


Good Lad


Alway, soon 5 Euros will be worth £23,978.

That would certainly help.

NewCorkSeth I know not a huge ammount of people went but seriously? Nobody has any scores or notes?

I really want to know how McIntyre, Richards, Olise and Loader got on.

Did McIntyre look fit?

Did Richards learn from the last game and deal with the physical threat better?

Was Olise as silky and mature as he looked in the last game?

Did Loader play well? Look like scoring?

Cmon. Someone must have gone.


McIntyre always looks fit tho.

SCIAG Teddy Howe.

Outside chance it was McCleary I guess.


Yeah, I thought it might be Howe. I did consider GMc but then realised it would've had to be a few years ago to be considered oxf*rd quick :wink:


Thought it might be Olise, actually. Think he'd refer to Howe as a fullback, no? I believe McCleary played centrally.

Could be, could be. I don't know if Olise is particularly quick? I've not seen him enough to notice

Absolutely shocking choice of pubbery in the vicinity - everywhere shut, was like a ghost town. Pleased with the selection of drinks (and the fact a bar had been built at all) in what was a temporary stand a few years back.

Thought the youngsters played superbly and professionally throughout - Howe impressed especially although could easily have conceded a pen at 0-0. GMac was like the father figure bossing things in a centre mid role. Is it fair to say McCleary is the Rooney of Reading? Not bad for a tenner overall.

As a footnote, I was repulsed at the amount of half and half Man United scarves.

What do you expect? Most of the B & B owners are sunning themselves in the Canary Islands every January. it's their tradition, you know.

I think John means permanently closed. I walked along the Lytham Road and half the shops and pubs were closed, including The Gavel, where I was hoping to have a pre match Spoons visit. Closed in August apparently and sold off by Spoons two years before that.

There were a lot of Indian and Chinese takeaways but you’d need local knowledge to know which are the ones to go to.

You know things are shit when the charity shops are shut.

Mr Optimist Special mention to Blackpool as a club, lovely super friendly fans and staff, good luck for the rest of the season and hope you can make the play offs

This 100%

I'd agree with this 100% as far as Oxford getting beat every game in general but It'd be good if they did come up (and we didn't go up) as we really need a feisty derby again.

I did indeed mean that. Apologies, I’m even less articulate on a hangover.

Despite his goal I thought Boye was pony. Hope the loan isn’t made permanent.

One thing I learnt about this game is quite how far away Blackpool is!

That's what they were saying on the radio anyway.

Do a Rightmove search of houses for sale in Blackpool. Stick in a minimum of 6 bedrooms. It's an eye opener.

Anyone fancy a 10 bedroom house for £135,000?

Fantastic for student accommodation. Shame the nearest university is in Preston.
