You've missed the point Mankini.

:D

Hopefully we will have a few more bitter Billy big bollocks comments from opposition fans between now and the end of the season.

No doubt they are still bigger clubs. That's what makes their obsession with "little" Reading even funnier.

Especially when they suddenly discover songs written by a little old lady 4 years ago. :lol:

Former European Cup finalists and Semi finalists, Forest and Leeds, are curiously obsessed with "little" Reading.

Actually embarrassed for them.


Leeds are from some sort of third marriage after the first World War, we have significantly more "History" than them!


Don't tell them that. They still believe they are the epitome of football, the creme de la creme and probably that football was invented by some chap called Keith in his Leeds garage after getting jiggy with the 1800's version of Claudia Schiffer

Poor run of form for Bournemouth. Do you fear relegation?

If they don't sack Eddie Howe soon then the slide will continue into the Championship for seasons to come, a la Stoke and Swansea...and Forest.

Yeah guys, we had a shit pop song four years ago... We laughed at it then, and we're laughing at having your points now too.

Sandman has said what needs to be said about Forest. Just to add there was nothing wrong with the atmosphere on Saturday. The crowd were involved from the start. The feisty tackles helped to keep the crowd interested. Oh and 1871 seemed to have found a drum.

I thought that was someone in 1871 beating their chest? Their numbers seemed a tad depleted, so just as well.

I still smile at the Hobnobber comment from years ago at A Forest fan who came on after losing here to say ‘At least we have a forest’ with the HN response ‘ But we have Whitley Wood’

In fairness to Forest the ref was absolutely terrible, total homer. Don't think they can complain about the red cards or even the yellows but he gave every close call our way and generally handled things poorly - shouldn't have let that brawl get so out of hand for example. We got lucky. If he'd been a bit more even-handed then I think people would certainly be complaining, but because his mistakes all went in our favour we don't have a problem with it.

Really? He could have sent off Fox in the first few minutes, he could have given a straight red for Murphy.

Nope. He took his time and consulted with his Lino before making his decisions. Forest were an ill disciplined shambles. They got exactly what they deserved for some very poor challenges.

I've just rewatched the highlights because of this argument and I can't say I think there's much the ref got bang on.

Fox - could easily have seen a straight red
Richards - slightly more control but a worse challenge, couldn't complain at red
Murphy - a straight red, looks like intent and worse than Darikwa's
Fox - obviously they don't show the whole melee, but the bit they do show he's trying to restrain people but someone else piles in near him aggressively... Makes me wonder about mistaken identity... that's just the highlights tho, maybe something is missing.
Darikwa - doesn't look too bad to me, off the ground but both feet seem to go wide of Loader who he seems to catch with the flat of his leg, looks less bad than either Richards or Fox's to me.

I think we will see an extension of Article 50 as May goes back to Brussels yet again.I don’t think we will get a second Referendum under this Government nor is a General Election likely.
In the end I can see a soft Brexit being negotiated which will include our staying in the Customs Union meaning the backstop issue goes away.

I’m not sure what’s more idiotic. Trump or Brexit.
