Re: The Next 8 games - Make or Break Time

Bolton is by no means a given. Having watched some of the game last night they did cause WBA a few problems. They didn't, they were abysmal. Hi DD/Kes btw. I saw Gary O'Neil come close and they had several other chances. What you also must remember is WBA are a better side than us. Not sure what th...

Re: Bolton away

Nah it will be a comfortable victory. I cannot believe nobody can see how our new style is going to blow the lesser sides out of the water, especially with Oliveira leading the line. We will go up there and get a 2 or 3 nil victory. Yes, it will be an easy win for us in the end and probably be the ...

Re: BBC Berks - Portuguese striker to join in next 24 hours

One that got away for me. Thought we had a proper player on our hands. He was absolutely sh!t. And probably on a king's ransom too No way John, Sa was excellent. He had a fire in his belly that no striker has had since for us. He was aggressive and always caused oppostion defenders problems, was mo...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

How big an impact does extra time have, do we think? A lot of the time when you think a team is going to be leggy it actually works in their favour because they have the momentum and would have trained anyway, albeit not quite to that intensity.

I am still confident of a draw.

Re: On this day

Loads of games on 17th of January over the years. The highlight has to be a 2-0 win at the Co*nty Ground, though. Swindle, remarkably, managing to be worse that one of the worst Reading teams in a generation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tMIAd2ZLfc (goals at 1:10 and 2:15) Is there a finer sigh...

Perhaps with the Irish link he could go to Nottingham Forest. A swap deal for Matty Cash would be nice.

Re: The Manager Sack Race/Merry-go-Round

Slightly odd that It would appear both Karanka and WAgner instigated their own departures, although for quitedifferent reasons. Neither appear to have other jobs lined up, not often a manager just quits like that. It's just for face-saving purposes. They are paid off handsomely to make it look like...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

All I see here is an out of sorts Derby County. We have a good record up there and are coming off the back of a good win and a general feel-good factor.

A draw is the least I will accept from this game.
