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...

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 ...
