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

This is not a dig at anyone at all but debate has gone from.... Cringe, poor numbers, diluting atmosphere, this will never work, pack it in, embarrassing, to now saying it’s so good the players only acknowledge the south stand :lol: Based on that outcome I think we can say it’s been a massive success.

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

How could it ever hope to compliment the rest of the ground? The south stand are singing their inoffensive dittys towards the pitch, away from y26 (the only real organic area for noise), flanked by away fans on their right and the most soulless part of the ground on their left. It hasn't got a hope...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

Just fantastic today. Gomes has done quite a magnificent job, . Martinez was outstanding today and that save he made out for the corner is one of the best you will ever likely to see. Shot was unexpected, went like a rocket and right in corner. He was full stretch and finger tipped it around the pos...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Under Clement we couldn’t average more than a point per game. After a slow start Gomes has done brilliantly. In our last 17 games we have picked up 25 points. We would not have been in this position had Clement remained in charge. The only slight criticism I can think of is that we are taking the l...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by Scott Murray

Great stream thanks Caversham.

Dick head commentator but not surprised.

Gunter and deffo Blackett should of done better for their goal.

But let’s be honest, that’s a brilliant point. Just need Rotherham to lose and secure league status on Monday.

Re: Swift to Leeds

Libertine I like Swift. But if the £7million is used to help keep Baker, Ejaria and Miazga in Reading on permanent deals I am all for selling him.


Agreed

Re: The League of 4

The bottom of the table after the New Years Day fixtures 19 Millwall. 26/28 20 Wigan. 26/26 21 Rotherham 26/25 22 Bolton. 26/22 23 Reading. 26/20 24 Ipswich. 26/15 We were in dire straits. So in 16 games since then 24 points made up of 6W, 6D and 4L. That’s some turnaround. That is some turnaround

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

Today marks 1 year of Club 1871, and they've gone from 52 people in the first game to regularly getting 4 to 500, not bad. It was always going to be a slow burner of a project. They have done a great job. Other clubs are taking note. Atmosphere improved ten fold. They just need to keep remembering ...

Norwich looked a really good team last night. It really could / should have been the absolute drubbing we were all expecting.

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

Exactly! 650 fans enjoyed the PNE game in the South Stand. Sales going well for Brentford, and we’re hopeful of matching and even breaking that number. As the team perform better, crowds throughout the ground improve, in all stands. Had we had a better season then C1871 would have been a success so...

We have some real numpties on here. The bottom line is the club endorse it. Having been in there all season I can say without any shadow of doubt that I am enjoying going to games again. I can stand without some pleb telling me to sit down, I can move around, and have a sing song and oxf*rd smile a...

Brilliant how this initiative has really grown and from what I have heard the likelihood that's is here to stay with added incentives to move to the south stand from next season. Well done all. This is most certainly the case. Nigel Howe is a big supporter of the initiative! Please provide evidence...

Re: Rival Watch

9pt deduction for Brum apparently. Not quite enough to really drag them into it, but a couple more defeats and they'll be worried Seeing as their next 3 games are WBA, Leeds and Sheff Utd, I would say it is plenty to drag them into it. In fact, all of their last games now become huge, as their othe...

Re: Nine Very Difficult Games - Predictions?

A caller to BBC Berks on Saturday made the (perhaps obvious) point. It's now an 8 game season and we have to outscore Rotherham to stay up. Looking at the league table, that sounds about right. Ipswich are as good as down, Bolton are in trouble but it's Rotherham who look like the biggest threat to...

Think Man City have got into trouble recently, employing parents as scouts on £600,000 per year !!!! That was Chelsea.

Re: The League of 4

Amazingly* none of our rivals have managed to beat Bolton this year! If their results were expunged (I'm sure the league wouldn't want this to happen) all of us, Rotherham, Ipswich, Millwall and Wigan would lose a point. Possibly of more importance Ipswich, Millwall and Wigan would all have one few...
