Re: What is the point in HRK

Since Hal has rejected Reading and moved on, shouldn't this thread now be in "General Football"? FWIW, I agree with those who say he was talented but lazy when in a Reading shirt unless playing for a contract. Salako was the same. I'd rather have a team of "flawed but honest" pla...

Re: New manager odds

Bookies seem to think the job is Stams.

Ladbrokes, Paddy Power, William Hill, Coral all no longer offering a market on Next Reading manager

Bet Victor have 2/9 and Betfair have 1/14.

Done deal?

BFTG Preston

Everyone was rubbish.

We need a Harris Queensway in the summer. (Massive Clearout)

They can all leave TBH and let Brian rebuild from the bottom up.

Its not the losing, its the cant be arsed attitude.

Get us a team that wants to play for the shirt.

We must surely give it to the only Reading player to distinguish themselves in the World Cup

Re: Supporters Player of the Season

Unusual for you to be positive towards a Blackman. Hello Diane Abbot. No one can say you are not getting your money's worth out of that new catchphrase I think you have to have listened to the Dead Ringers podcast to get this. Dianes response would be something like: "Now hang on a minute, And...

Re: BFTG Hull (H)

4 defeats in 4 games is relegation form. That's a bold statement Looking at todays table, MK Dons are odds on for the last relegation spot. We have the same number of draws as them and only won 4 more games all season. I dont think is bold to suggest that if we hadn't had a good run of wins in Sept...

Re: It it worth buying a sesaon ticket for 2016/7

Had the exact same issue last year. Due to other commitments I ended up paying about £35 a game and decided financially it was a no-brainer and did not renew. To be completely honest I'm shocked to say that I don't enjoy it the way I did when I was younger. I used to be one of these people who pour...

Re: What is the point in HRK

Looked good again tonight and Blackmanesque finish. Interesting comparison. Blackman was roundly considered to be useless for 2 and a bit years, then it all seemed to click into place, he played brilliantly for 12 weeks and secured a big money move away from the Madjeski as a result. The only diffe...

Re: What is the point in HRK

Agree with others comments. Talented but lazy. I read today that he has decided to put all contract talks with Reading "on hold" to the end of the season. Translation - "I can get a better deal out of Swansea if they don't have to pay Reading a fee for me" Were I the manager, I w...

Re: BFTG - WBA

Fantastic performance and result. Everyone (as Len Goodman would say) gave their all and earned the win in every sense. So one question. Why dont we see this level of effort and commitment every week in the league? This is still basically the same team that was 2nd in the league in September so why ...

Are you a fan or a customer?

Today v Wolves was awful IMHO and I left feeling that I had wasted my afternoon. There was some news coverage this week about whether those who support a football team are fans or customers. My interpretation of a fan is someone who spends money on tickets and merchandise, week in, week out, not car...
