"You're so sh*t you must all be in shorts" - doesn't make sense as apart from the odd goalkeeper, all players play in shorts.

100 old hits, one hundred old hits, we've got the records, 100 hits......... which is ironic, as the PA system only plays a handfull of the same not so old songs.

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

Yiadom is the only one I'd send straight back in; a pure like for like upgrade on Gunter. Otherwise, the system is working so stick with it. There will be injuries etc. The players you mention will get chances, but for now they must be patient while the team is winning. Gunter is part of the system...

If this thread can be extended to footballers behaving badly, there's a video I saw on twitter of Raiham Sterling and someone else dry humping doggy style 3 girls in a crowded club. They all seem to be consenting and there is some nudity but not great behaviour by any of them, especially as you can ...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Isn't the Basingstoke bus about a fiver return? Picked it up a few years back from Tadley and it was ok. Yeah, it was about that, somewhere between £5 - £6 but for what it was I didn't think it was great value. 6 pound from basingstoke to the ground and back, not good value? wait till you check out...

Re: New manager Brendan Rodgers *confirmed*

SouthDownsRoyal Manager of the second placed team in the premier league, who would have thought it all those years ago.
If we stuck by him we would have been relegated - Wrong manager for the club at that moment in time.

SCIAG Blackman has to be in contention, outside that run of 10 games where he was unplayable he was utter utter pony. And he cost us £1.5m when that still meant something.


Although we did get a reported £3m for him :shock:

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

The club and players don't want extra away fans . Do you have a source for this claim? I can see logic in either decision, I guess it would be more clear cut if the ground was a sellout week in week out - home fans are more profitable than away fans (no away fan is going to spend big in the megatst...

The Cube On the fares to "Reading stations" issue, there is recent local precedent. Oxford Parkway is ticketed separately from Oxford.

I think this is the closure I was seeking - thanks The Cube.

If the point of Club 1871 is still to support the players, improve the atmosphere etc etc with positive chants/singing/clapping and not to antagonise the away fans/have a sing song with the away fans then why do they need to be sat in the away end next season? Why not make the Club 1871 area a secti...
