Having said that, i certainly wouldnt want to go back to the Burns/ Bullivant era, no way pedro! At least back then we had a bit of fun on the South Bank, no stewarding issues or anything back then. And the football was entertaining at least....for the away fans anyway! :shock: Fun being the key wo...

Very mixed feelings for me as well. I have to admit, im not really enjoying it as much as i thought i would. August 19 v Boro was without doubt the best game played at the Madejski, and ranks as the most momentus day in the clubs history. Now its all settled down, there are plenty of negatives: a) o...

Lester Schapter
Clive Wilkes
Brian Coddington (the only ref to send off 4 players from 1 team)

They're shit refs for you. Compared to them i'd have Rennie as ref any day.

Besides, surely we would want a poor ref for this game anyway? More chance of evening it up

Also worth consdiering that if ever there was going to be a time to have a bad run, now is probably it. Even if we were playing better football, we prob wouldn't have too many points to show from it with such a rediculous run of tough fixtures anyway.

Charlton & Fulham will be crunch time

The answer to this stupid bickering is simple. Whatever is sung from Y24/25/26 can't be heard by just about everyone else in the rest of the East, North and West. Its just bad acoustics. its always been like that. Hence why about 2,000 were singing 'Divers' and about 20,000 were singing 'Lets all do...

Any indication of how much this will cost the club? I seem to recall seeing ball park figures of £1,000 per seat. How much of an effect will this have on our transfer budget over the next couple of years? JM also said that any redevelopment wont start until we have firmly established ourselves as a...

Without those 23 goals, we would have been relegated to the basement division. I suppose you would have been happier with that as long as he didn't play. :roll: Good point, Caskey's goals that season turned the fortunes of the club. That was the season that our upward trend started. If it kept us u...

It has also reminded me how bad Hahnemann's kicking is as well as the run of pretty poor/average keepers we had had between Shaka and Hahnemann. Good things, bad things. Hahnemann's kicking was one of his strengths when he signed, I don't know why it's so bad now. What makes you think his kicking i...

A few brain dead posts as usual. Forster. took us the play-offs single handedly, with just about every opposition manager saying he was the best player outside the premiership. For a championship player, you can't get a much better rating than that. Caskey, 22 goals in a season was it, with ample as...

Steve Archibald anyone?

Remember all the hype about him coming to Elm Park. bumped the gate up from 3 - 5,000 for his one and only game and he was utter pony. he missed an open goal from 1 yard only for super Trev to bail him out.

Not only have we scored early in our games, we have yet to score after the hour mark. Lita's against Boro on the opening day (55th min, or there about) being our latest goal so far this season. Probably a reflection of how much we have been settling for our lead most of the 2nd half, but a strange s...

Got my Pompey tickets today, I refuse to go to UP again after sitting below pitch level the last time I went. Their away end is worse than Pompey. The Away end at UP is a joke.

Priority to those who went to the Darlo game - or purely based on Royalty Points? Considering those who went to the Darlo game got 20 points I think Royalty points is fair enough. What will the ticket allocation be as the league cup rules on ticket allocations may differ from the prem. Can't imagin...

I think Smee was only after the land. And on what slightest piece of evidence do you try to pin that ridiculous and insulting claim?! Damn right! Back that claim up!

I supose the application has been made assuming the club establish themselves long term in the premiership. With the exception of games like we have on Sat, you have to ask whether we really need to extend at all at the moment. I believe tickets for our first 2 home games went on general sale, so d...
