Re: Euro 96 v Euro 16

I loved Argentina 78, first tournament I really got in to and just seemed a different world to english football, some sensational goals, shame Argentina's 6-0 win of Peru was subsequently tainted to the suggestion of match fixing Mexico 86 was fabulous, was working in London sharing a house with 3 o...

Re: Warnock leaving Rotherham

I would rather be relegated than see us appoint Warnock, I certainly wouldn't go to another game while he was manager.

He is the personification of everything I hate in a football manager

Re: Rumour - Deniss Rakels

My prediction of Rakel's Reading career: Weeks 1-8 - one random start where he's subbed after 45 mins and lots of "he's not up to speed fitness wise so we're working hard on him in training" Weeks 8 - 15 - A few appearances on the bench coming on for 10 minutes twice Weeks 16 onwards - no...

Re: RUMOUR - Paolo Hurtado

I'm guessing we didn't spend too much on English lessons for Hurtado. I think this is where a lot of clubs miss out when signing foreign players. There appears to be little effort to help them settle. Think its time to appoint a settlement contact that helps the family buy/rent a house, take them a...

Re: RUMOUR - Paolo Hurtado

You would think the club/manager would put some work in on assessing what a player is like off the pitch and whether he's likely to settle and be an active participant in the squad. Doesn't matter how good you are on the pitch if your performance is adversely affected by off pitch things/failing to ...

Re: The where the F*ck did it all go wrong thread

To answer the original question - when Steve Clarke had his head turned and pursued options elsewhere. Once that's happened, it's open knowledge that Clarke has no loyalty to Reading and will take the first offer that meets his demands. The club knows it, the fans know and, clearly, the players know...

Re: ArsenaLOL

I'd quite like England to lose its 4th spot as it might may teams take the domestic cups more seriously and level the playing field fractionally more.
