Re: Back from I Follow Luton

Mid table team in mid table position. Ship steadied. Just need to keep the core together for next season. There's something to build on. Basically that Again convinced we can lose 15+ players and still have enough to tread water next season I honestly wouldn't get carried away today. Luton were as ...

Re: Rival Watch

Wigan Athletic have gone into administration, becoming the first English professional club to do so since the coronavirus pandemic began. The English Football League has said Wigan will be deducted 12 points. The sanction will be applied at the end of this season if the Latics, 14th in the Champion...

How many points deduction?


That’s to follow unless EFL are to their word and does not apply for rest of the season.

Re: Squad for 2020/21

2 things: 1) Do we trust these owners to sign the right type of players for this club? Do we trust them to not splash wages on overrated players from abroad who take an age to adjust? Because if we don’t (and I don’t for that matter), this whole conversation is pretty futile 2) Can I play the Brian...

Old Man Andrews We are currently 80/1 to get relegated. Got to be worth a fiver.


Worth 3 quid to pay for league 1 season ticket to soften the blow perhaps!

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

Agree fully with this but we can't use that to excuse the players from putting in a performance or at least trying to. Why do our players have no pride? Why do they seemingly not bother putting in 100% effort? You'd think players like Moore and Swift would want to put themselves in the shop window ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

From where we were when Bowen took over to now - he has done very well - he got results together which barring defeat in all our remaining games he has kept us up with a very slight flirtation with play offs with 9 games to go. Back from lockdown, to me the players are on holiday, fatigued, lethargi...

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Absolutely shambolic. Such a turgid display. Nothing else on that needs to be said. What I would say though is, if that was a half packed Madjeski they would get roundly booed. The players would come out and moan about fans and demand support. They have no excuses or to blame anyone else but themsel...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

BTTS and Win for Reading is 12/1 - probably more with some bookmakers - have we ever been such long odds at home in a championship fixture before? I very much doubt it.

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

Sad to see him go, had a lot of time for Danny Loader and felt he could and should have been given more of an opportunity in the first team (instead of bring played in midfield the only time he had any sort of run in the team). In the circumstances, can hardly blame him for this decision and person...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by no fans allowed

Zip We have lost a game where apart from the opening 15 minutes we were the better side but we are mentally weak and don’t work or press hard enough. Another defeat which shouldn’t have been. We continue to underachieve.

Pretty much this.

Got such a weak underbelly.
