Re: BFTG - Forest

Tbf, one of my key ways of telling players apart is hair style. Was well pissed off when Blackett, Ejaria, Olise, Pele and Loader all have had similar cuts at points. How dare Meite switch to the other side of the penalty area and confuse me. Set up with Yiadom, Burley, Blackett, Richards, Rinomhot...

Ian, you really are the Chris Gunter of HobNob.


IMO that is seriously unfair to Gunts, whatever about Ian's original dig.

Personally, would have Ian as more of the Mark Lawrenson of Hobnob....

Ouch. :x


Could be worse, you could be the Katie Hopkins of Hobnob

Re: When are Millwall away tickets on sale?

It's not the match ticket per se but the associated costs and, indeed, arrangements. Can't see what's quite so controversial about royalp-we 's comment. It's not controversial, it's just that the poster whining about his comment would start a fight in an empty room. Back to the issue - it does seem...

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

It would taken a top keeper to save their second which was hit with venom. The fault with that goal has to lie with Burley who got outmuscled. Having said that Southwood deserves a chance. He has done well out on loan again so give him the replay. Strange that at the moment we have five GK’s Rafael...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

If we didn't have Howe, yeah no probs with that. But Howe is not going to get much game time whilst Gunter is sitting as back up, so for me, we either decide Howe isn't going to make it and offer that (much) reduced deal, or it's bye to Gunts. Other option is to give Gunter a one year extension, an...

Re: BFTG - Blackpool

Walker - Mediocre. Had one decent save. Defence was poor for the first, but he was worse. And with a makeshift defence like that you really need confidence in the keeper behind you. Needs games - but I hope he doesn't get them here. Would like to see what Southwood is like - wonder will he get his c...

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

I found it interesting to see how they reacted to it as well, publicly at least. McCleary made it known far and wide he wasn't happy, with some snidey tweets and instagrams, culminating in that interview. Baldock was more diplomatic about it in an interview with getreading, but made it clear he fou...

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

What it does show is what poor management by Gomes it was to treat Gunter, McCleary and, to a lesser extent, Baldock in the way he did. All excellent professionals who have contributed in a big way since their return to the fold. Yep very much so. All model pros who were treated very poorly. I foun...

Re: Chant Lyrics

Had a search and couldn't find any threads about chant lyrics. With the creation of Club 1871 we seem to have a lot of new chants and often see people asking for lyrics. New chant for me is something to the tune of "Endor - Pump It Up". What are the lyrics? I know it's something like &quo...

Re: Reading FC WhoScored Ratings

whoscored rates "successful" interactions rather than "good" interactions, or "non" interactions, so tends to favour particular styles of play - Ratings need to be taken with a large handful of salt. E.g., a player with good alertness and positioning who shepherds an at...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Is there any age limits to this area or open to all? Given that most people stand the whole game will need to consider what a small kid will see - might be worth arriving early to bag places down the front (also, no designated seating). But there's no age limits as such. I believe though that it wo...

Re: Upset the Apple cart.

Yiadom is out until the end of Jan. Couple of weeks after that to get fully fit. No point even having the debate now. If Gunter continues to play well then there is a decision to make then. However, just as possible that we play rubbish again, change the system or pick up injuiries before that date...

Re: Rival Watch

I think it will be Luton, Charlton and Wigan for the drop. Charlton are in freefall, Luton are too reliant on their home form and Wigan don't score enough and concede too many late goals (17 points lost in the final 10 minutes so far this season. We, by comparison, have lost 3, to the top 2). Charl...
