Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

If they were to get 10 stewards in, proper stewards - not the neeks they have from uni who want some cash, who stood there week in week out and formed a relationship with the fans it would be significantly easier to police. Agreed with that, tbf. There needs to be some regular faces in that area wh...

Re: Bowen Out.

Since Bowen started he has had a hooneymoon period though. You would expect him to have a good three of four games where the players play better than average, as they have a new boss to impress. Adjusting for that, is it that impressive? It is solid. Next season he won't have a honeymoon period. And...

Re: Second season success stories

I thought Glen Little was shit in his loan spell - next season he was unplayable. Puscas needs some real coaching to get him working effectively in the formations we play. He also needs to improve his work rate and movement. I have no idea what we can do with him but I think he can play. We have to...

Re: CONFIMRED - Felipe Araruna

Based on his name alone, this player will be similarly good to Aluko and Bacuna.

Derby have now been charged. Let's hope our £20m passes the test.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (h) sponsored by a Merry Christmas to one and all

Charlie Adam best / most intelligent passer of the ball I've seen in a Reading shirt.

Better than Matejovski. Far far better than Sidwell or Harper. Yes that dates me. I'm fine with that.

Pretty sure face value is the rules according to Hobnob.

Though i wasn't born yesterday. Previously i've always bought and sold at face value on here.

Wanted - Brentford away

Would be very happy to take any spare standing tickets if anyone has any available.

I can pay through direct transfer, paypal, revolut, or cash in hand on the day.

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

Alternatively, Roy Hodgson coming out of the UAE / Viking wilderness to become an established manager again, rising to manage Liverpool and then ENGLAND! A good bit of long an...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

We should do everything to shift in Jan, even if it's free.....however if we're stuck with him he may as well be around the squad. He had shown his quality throughout his career before joining us. He's clearly a confidence player who was at the club in the dire Gourlay era. I wouldn't say I expect ...

Re: Ejaria vs Siggy

What a ridiculous comparison. Gylfi was possibly the best player we’ve ever had. Ejaria isn’t even our best midfielder right now. That might change in the future but right now there’s no contest. +1 Although i assume you're saying Swift is better. Swift's best moments are better. I think Ejaria loo...

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

Derby did theirs at £80m, we did ours at £20m odd. I think we're in a safer position. Ours has previously been used for music events. £20m seems reasonable.

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

this appointment is about as uninspiring as when we announced Pardew, Coppell then McDermott were to be our manager. Rodgers excited me, as did Adkins, Clarke and Stam, all shit.
