The stewards should be well aware of Marcus' habits, he has done it for the last few years and it's not like we haven't played them recently is it? Didn't the same thing happen last season at Bramall Lane as well? I seem to remember a bit of finger pointing and Marcus calling a steward a fcuking wn...

To be fair to Hansen, his criticism of Sonko against Boro was valid and therein lies the difference between him and Lawrenson. Hansen will try to analyse the situation, you may not agree with him but he does try to present his opinions with some evidence to back it up. Lawrenson just says what he th...

Lineker is a Leicester fan, has some involvement in his club and is known to attend games at the Walkers so you'd assume he knows a little more about life outside the Premiership than the other pundits. Shearer seems to be fairly honest in his assessments. His analysis of our strengths and Uniteds w...

Gordons Cumming I don't care what Lawro says. He needs a rocket up his ar*e. Talk about laid back and boring.



I'd say he was smug rather than laid back.

I think we're all aware you want Ivar's babies, AP. I think the crux of this is the partnership between the two. Sonks provides the physical presence and Ivar provides the craft. You expect that quiet authority on the ball from Ivar. Sonko has a much steeper learning curve. My worry is that he would...

Was awesome tonight. Glad to see him taking the safety first approach to clearing the area. I presume Wally has had words in the last 2 weeks. There was one last ditch tackle with Dickov breaking clear in the first half that was absolutely superb. Pity it's not on MOTD because I'd have been interest...

There was plenty of moaning at Elm Park and Elm Park Disease and Taking The Biscuit were full of vitriol aimed at the club every issue. Big difference? They only came out once every 2 months. Different format but same outlet as HobNob. In relative terms, times were indeed worse in the 80's but Elm P...

But we fought to keep ourselves in the game, I got the feeling Wigan had another gear, should they have needed it. Apart from Lita's chance late on and a couple of shots from outside the box that Kirkland collected omfortably, I can't really remember us creating anything. Biggest laugh though was wh...

Far to generous there, PieEater. I thought Wigan were deserved winners. We were outmuscled far too much, were second best to the loose ball and far too many players had an off day. The distribution was generally very poor. Hahnemann was solid and the defence, whilst indivudually no-one had a particu...

No. I wasn't trying to defend Lampard. What I was going to go on to say is that a ghost writer and editor and publisher are going to play things very safe, which is why most autobiographies are so anodyne. Ooh, you said Ronaldo is a oxf*rd, you can't say that, say that you've patched up your differ...

Quite right Aggro, they should create a breakaway club in the Reading Saturday League and burn effigies of John Madejski at half time in protest at his legal purchase of the club.

I remember next to nothing about what happend on the pitch in my first match. What I do remember is the banter, the atmosphere, the smells and everything associated with being part of the crowd. That's what got me hooked, that feeling of being part of the game and that's what kept me going in the re...

The highest official attendance I experienced at Elm Park was against Arsenal in 87. About 17,000 IIRC. I remember a few that seemed just as packed but the Simod Cup game against Coventry doesn't stand out as being one of them.
