Re: Rival Watch

It's difficult to say, Revie was 47 when he took the England job so not exactly old but that Leeds team were. Hunter, Cooper, Reaney, Madeley, Bremner, Giles and Jones were all in their 30's. They had some decent young players coming through like McQueen and Jordan but most of the squad were 28+ so ...

Re: Rival Watch

They won the Fairs Cup in 68 and 71 but that just reinforces that their "history" is basically Revie and not a lot else.

Of 7 major trophies won, 6 were under Revie.

Of 12 major cup finals reached, 10 were under Revie and 1 was in the season after he left.

Re: What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

No family connection but Elm Park was at the end of the street so my friends and I started going. I've watched Reading in all 4 divisions. Yeah, it's a lifelong thing and I still go when I can but living 200 miles away, it's not as often as I'd like. Was the my first game memorable? Yes, there was a...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

The clubs with a massive player wages to income ratio's are going to be in financial dire straits because of the shut down; sadly, that puts us right in the firing line, as our wages to income ratio is (according to the Financial analyst, Swiss Ramble) 197%................... What chance a relaxati...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Or no passport no papers, So, are you suggesting we don't import or export anything for 2+ weeks? What are you suggesting, FDTW?

From Despair To Where? I'm intrigued by this notion of coronavirus being thwarted by tighter border controls.

Is it travelling on a false passport or something?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Birmingham City (a) sponsored by mid table obscurity

Great play by Puscas in the build up to the third. He's definitely coming good, even without getting on the scoresheet today. What's really impressive is that, whilst people are rightly praising Pele's finish, he also made the original clearance out of our box before bombing 80yds downfield to be o...

Re: Best centre back pairing

Miazga and A Nother.

I now think we should do everything we can to sign him in the summer.

I agree that they are all of a similar standard but we seem to do better with Miazga in the side.

Well, the Birmingham forum match thread is the mirror image of this one. From "Whoop, 8pts off the playoffs" to "Sack the manager" in 45 minutes.

Chelsea away tomorrow, which will be interesting. Although Chelsea are practically useless at home. I have a feeling they will lose. If they do it will blow the title race WIDE open. I've been asking the Liverpool fans at work if they're feeling nervous yet. Their response : Given that Liverpool co...

There's always been this paradox with Chelsea, this whole fashionable Kings Rd thing thing coupled with the rampant nastiness at the heart of the club and it's fans. The only club in England to install electric fences to keep their own fans in check. And then you throw Mourinho into the mix. The tur...
