Re: Goalkeeper situation now Rafael injured

morganb I've always wondered why an assault on a football pitch is outside the jurisdiction of the police.
Same with boxing, two people literally punching the crap out of each other yet you never see the police step in and break it up

Re: Goalkeeper situation now Rafael injured

Jackson Corner There is a story doing the rounds that he threw a punch at Morrison in the dressing room and has been suspended by the club.
Was probably aiming for the whiteboard though.

Re: Skybet Odds-watch

When the fun stops, stop. My advice 1. Have a budget 2. Start small - if you can't turn £10 into £20 then you're never going to turn £100 into £200. 3. Know when not to bet, don't just bet on something for the sake of it 4. Keep records of every bet and how much you win/lose and a total 5. If you w...

Re: Skybet Odds-watch

I've started betting on goals scored, usually +2.5 goals in the game. The odds for most games are generally 1/2 or just below, so stick £10 on +2.5 in the next Reading game and you get around and you make £5 profit if we win, lose or draw as long as the total goals scored by both sides totals 3 or m...

Hound it'd be nuts to bring in an emergency into the first 11.
That does depend on who the emergency loan is.

Re: Pauno out

What happens if we draw? The most ridiculous thing about his substitution was that Puscas was having a great game and dragging defenders all over the place. Bonkers. Personally a draw isn't good enough....the owners may need to pull the trigger....I just hope there is a replacement available/ in mi...

Re: Pauno out

BBC Berks kept going on about the defensive issues being down to the players being told to use zonal marking and not adapting well to it, Adie Williams said back in his day they would have agreed to ignore the manager and go man for man marking, he suggested maybe there wasn't anyone in the dressing...

Re: Is it the right time to sack the manager ?

Do you have faith in the ability of the club to recruit a new the manager with the necessary skills and experience required to achieve greater results under the same circumstances as the current manager? If you believe the answer is no then be very careful what you ask for when you start protesting ...

Re: Attendance

Hendo Attendance was so low it was actually the 10th highest in the EFL, once again our fans will try and use absolutely anything to bash our own club.
How did it compare to last season?

Re: George Puscas To Be Loaned Out

Signed for £6.5m 2 years ago, and now we’re willing to let him go out on loan?! Madness. Surely we’d be looking to recoup most of his value and sell him on instead? Players only maintain/go up in value as their contract reduces if you play them and they perform well. I imagine Jao, for example woul...
