Re: Champions League Thread 2016/2017

Looked like Leicester could be on the wrong end of a 3-0/4-0 yesterday but completely turned it round with a quality away goal out of nowhere

Still keep feasible England could have no one in the Q/F's though

Re: FA Cup 16/17

I would be very surprised if the keeper hasn't been approached by the bookie beforehand and its a total set up. The correct odds for this should have been nearer 1000/1 as I doubt there's been a single precedent. I would imagine the bookies calculated the £10,000 hit, (they probably limited it) to b...

Re: Attendances

The football is dull as dishwater - that's why. It's just not good to watch even though we win the majority of home games. We get into promising positions and instead of taking a risk by playing a through ball, quite often we will end up back on the half way line. I will carry on going as always bu...

Re: BFTG - United (A)

In possession - 7/10

Out of possession - 2/10

One wonders what Stam made of the inept defending that could easily have led to us conceding 8 or more

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

For a team that is playing way above its normal level, I think it's a bit disrespectful of their fans to sing "you're nothing special, we lose every week"

Can't imagine their players are too impressed with that

Re: BFTG - Burton

Re: BFTG - Arsenal (a)

Serious question. When you saw the team Reading put out, did you a feel a little deflated and let down? 5,000+ fans paying good money, many taking the day/afternoon off work. No disrespect to the players involved, it's good experience for them. But so early on in the season with no obvious sign of ...

What about if there's an elderly fan or a child sat behind me who won't be able to see if I stand up, do I totally disregard them and do what I want to do?

Don't think so

Re: Arsenal (A)

I don't understand the sniping - a tenner to watch Reading play in one of the best and arguably the easiest grounds to get to in the country. Whats not to like? got 4 tickets in the home end behind the goal. Obviously means I have to deal with sitting next to Hugo and Tarquin and their city boy mat...

Noted the crowds for this season have been really rather poor.

Re: What's the Problem?

The problem is we don't have a single striker who would be considered much above average in Div 1 let alone the Championship and, clearly, this is going to impact on our performance more negatively than if we did. Last year we had Vydra, Sa, Blackman, Robson-Kanu all four of whom I would say are be...
