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

3rd place is way beyond my wildest expectations for this stage so well done to all concerned for that, however........just putting this out there, is anyone else really bored or is it just me?

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?

We have a 34 year old who has only scored more than 12 in a season once in the past decade A youngster who is completely untried at this level A currently injured Latvian who is, demonstrably, not good enough for the championship. A young French striker who, thus far, looks completely out of his de...

Re: What's the Problem?

Who, in your opinion, are the teams with a better strike force in the championship this season? And who are teams with better strike forces than us in League 1? Championship: Aston Villa - Gestede, McCormack, Kodija - Ill give you this one Barnsley - Winnall, Bradshaw, Armstrong - Have any of these...

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...

Re: Transfer Deadline Day - August '16

Pretty happy with our options in every position but striker. A new striker who can, at least, compete at this level, and no surprise exits, and I'd be happy

Re: Why are "we" booing players keeping the ball?

We have a new manager who is looking to implement a strategy based on ball retention with a squad of players who have barely met. He must wonder what he's let himself in for when, five games in, fans are booing and demanding the ball be hoofed up field to a lone striker who shows no ability at retai...

Re: Back from the game: MK Dons

Idiot fans were booing when Cooper kept passing the ball back to the keeper and we kept possession, I think might be the reason he then cracked and did a McDermot era long ball up to the attacker who then lost the ball. From that long ball, MK Dons got possession, launched an attack that had our at...
