Re: Playoffs 2019/20

What a great oxf*rd game we had tonight. Wycombe gave Fleetwood a pasting, 2 red cards and missed penalty. I would love to see them up in the league. Looking like a Wembley showdown between Wycombe and Oxford at the moment. Oxford drew 1-1 at Pompey. Doesn’t look like that at all. How can a 1-1 dra...

Re: Swift Offer

What has John Swift ever done/displayed to warrant a price tag of circa £5m? He plays for a mediocre, lower mid-table team in the Championship.

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Old Man Andrews Does Liam Moore go at the end of the season?

If it were up to me then yes. To think we could have had £12m for him a couple of years ago too

Re: BFIFollow Brentford

Absolutely shambolic. Such a turgid display. Nothing else on that needs to be said. What I would say though is, if that was a half packed Madjeski they would get roundly booed. The players would come out and moan about fans and demand support. They have no excuses or to blame anyone else but themse...

Re: Most underrated/"does a job" player for Reading?

His career progression proved what? That he spent the bulk of his career in the Dutch top flight including 2 very comfortable mid table finishes with newly promoted clubs before moving to England in his 30s?. That would suggest a good career as a solid pro footballer at a decent level but granted, ...

Re: Most underrated/"does a job" player for Reading?

Anyone on here even attempting to defend the ability of Joey van den Berg has no idea of football whatsoever. Atrocious technically, even worse mentally with the composure of a drunk bloke having an argument in a pub. Probably the same level of grace as well. Not a footballer and his career progress...

Re: The football is returning excitement-ometer

I genuinely can't believe what I'm reading from you lot. From having football ripped away from us for three months, to now having it back, in whatever capacity, we should be grateful for. I can barely contain my excitement and will be glued to the television for all games. Some of you just on here f...

Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Hadn’t realised Hammond had gone to Celtic. A bit surprised by the overconfidence on here and downplaying of Celtic lure. If Celtic want him then he’ll go and will only be a few million. As Howe has suggested we need to be cashing in on some assets. Sadly agree. £3-4m plus a sizable sell-on would l...

Re: Any player you recall who virtually beat us on their own.

Dick Habbin's hairdo Gianfranco Zola in pre-season friendly at EP .... absolute joy to watch.

Yes. We pegged them back to 1-1 then they (Zola) just switched it up a gear until they restored the lead. Genius.

Re: The most charismatic/moronic fan we have or have ever had

We currently have some of the worst fans in English football, some of them are a complete disgrace at away games. Loud, rude and deeply, deeply unfunny. everything is pretty much ok as long as it is based in good humour but we just seem to have a load of kids aged 16-25 who get drunk and drugged an...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Old Man Andrews Anyone asking for a refund should be immediately banned by the club. None of this is their fault and they owe you nothing.

Came into this thread specifically to say this. Thankfully it's already been said, although a pity it's taken till page 2.
