Re: New Kits 2019/20

I find it odd as it is a competition they are generally in most years and often get to the latter stages (recent times aside) If Leicester did it for winning the PL in 20 years time I would get it, if Forest have references to their European Cup wins on their shirts then yeah, I absolutely get it, ...

So we not gonna bother signing anyone?

Transfer window open and who did we sign?

No one, typical inept Reading backroom staff with no plan!

Don't know why I bother!!!!!!!!!

If City get a ban it won't be for next season.


Is this cos they can appeal it or does it take forever to reach a verdict?

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

You could say the entire season hinged on two shots that hit the post differently the game between City and Liverpool at the etihad, City's hit the post and went in, Liverpool's hit the post and came out (also somehow missing the incoming Salah) Neither team were lucky to finish where they did, but...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

You mean apart from losing Gomez, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Lallana for effectively the whole season. I think Henderson and Alexander-Arnold both missed a decent run of games too, and Firmino a little in the run in of course (don't think those 3 were that significant though. They were lucky that they ...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

if you can provide the test that proves this we can discuss otherwise speculation I wouldn't be surprised if there are plenty of stats out there to back it up. I'm certainly not going to bother hunting them out though! Look at Reading's successful sides, or perhaps United for something a bit closer...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

A bit like with Reading under Pardew and Coppell, a good or bad injury record isn't necessarily luck either. Winning teams tend to have less little knocks etc (see Mourinho's comments on his squad not having the attitude to deal with injuries) and having players well prepared and physically (and me...

Stranded
LUX deary me, what have United done?


make some fairly awful decisions with managers/players and slip away needing a massive rebuild whilst others overtake them.

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Isn't that just a by product of them being historically sh!t? Give it another 10 years or so of continued success and you'll start to see City shirts outnumber Liverpool or Utd shirts in random towns across the country.

Silver Fox I think they might want another CB, VVD can probably do it all on his own but a bit of help wouldn't go amiss

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Ridiculously good season for Liverpool, which isn't over yet, and I can only see them improving the squad to try again next year. The good thing for Liverpool is the age of their squad, and their key players. There's great scope for improvement if they can keep the mentality, momentum and the inten...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

We do have a plastic fanbase, 38,000 for a playoff final, 8 months later, 7,000 for a home game. Enough said I'm sure most managers in the Championship would like to spend 15/20 million like we did a couple of seasons ago etc...equal measures City's football bores me to death most of the time as we...
