Re: Anton took money!!

I thought the Paloma Faith incident was at some bash at a museum where he drunkenly got on stage and tried to hug her.

BR0B0T Calm down...you’ve played Southampton and Norwich and looked shakey at the back


BR0B0T you've played sides who are likely to be in a relegation battle and Arsenal at Anfield (guaranteed 3 points)


Whereas Citeh did ever so well.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by a Simon Cox chip

Anyone else getting the feeling that whilst Gomes was the one to bring back some positivity to the club he may not be the one to take it to the next stage? Depends on what your ambitions for this season are. Anyone who thinks we should be challenging top 6 is a bit naive IMO but we have enough abou...

Re: Favourite signing of the summer

This is what I stated when I took it seriously enough put numbers on it. 11 in the league in the promotion. Broken ankle in March but that's still well down on Lita and Kitson. Promising, but remember he's a club record fee at this point. Premier League season 1 - One good month. Nothing either sid...

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

The sale shouldn’t Be an issue, it’s the valuation that will catch people. The EFL rules state that any transactions must be at a genuine market rate. This is in the context of supplying goods and services and sponsorship but would be relevant for sale of assets as well. As long as we sold the grou...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Of the ooc players, Obita is the only one I'd definitely offer a contract, as long as he maintains fitness, along with maybe Blackett and East. However, the progress of McIntyre and Richards may make Blackett surplus to requirements. I wouldn't rely on Transfermarkt for contracts. It's not always gr...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

Italian fans not racist? This is the country where Verona fans would chant for Adrian Mutu whenever a black player was on the ball because it sounded like a monkey chant. Of the big 5 leagues it's the one with by far the worst problem with racism. Granted it's creeping back into our game with one or...

Re: Nova leaves on permanent deal

Shame he's gone but not overly fussed.

Not convinced he's as good as his absence from the shambles of the last 2 seasons has led some people to believe.

Sign up to the for BBC Berks podcast (it is available through iTunes and other podcast sources), it’s an excellent listen as is the Steve Coppell interview that was released earlier this month. Really hoping Ady gets to do several more before the season is out. I think it's quite clear that they ar...

Think this lot deserve booing off. Shocking performance today. We've been suckered into Charlton's negative tactics all game. Sometimes it’s better not to post during a game/right after a game whilst emotions are raw because you end up posting rubbish. Only spoilt brats would boo the team off today...

Royal_jimmy No idea how Charlton are so oxf*rd high up the table. They're such a limited side.


By being well organised and playing to their strengths. Nothing wrong with that.

Re: Any more out the door?

But a few weeks ago you were arguing against players who can play a bit in different positions in favour of specialists in a position. Pretty sure you also made a post on the Cardiff match thread about Bacuna and where he should be playing. Make your mind up. We now have specialist options at full/w...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Come on Ian, if you'd actually read what I said, my point was that they had 8 months to take effective action before the start of this season and didn't. The situation At Bury hasn't suddenly deteriated. This shouldn't have impacted on the start of the season. I also think the EFL can do more to mak...

Re: Rival Watch

Peterborough fans spoke quite highly of him during his loan there - played nearly 40 games I think. I think he is one of those keepers that needs to make a decision about making decent money at Prem/Champ level without ever playing or dropping into L1 establishing himself as a number 1 for a couple...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Exactly my point. The EFL sets it's own terms of membership. It shouldn't take until a month into the new season to say enough is enough when this all started 9 months ago. In other countries, clubs have to provide assurances of financial viability at the start of each season in order to compete. I ...
