Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

Wow thanks guys.

It's great to have you more experienced folk here teaching us (or me!) a thing or two about how things used to be.

Fascinating stuff.

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

25 December 1957 - Bournemouth 4 Reading 1 - our last Xmas Day match. Did 'em 2-0 in the return the next day. Wait, what.. back to back days? Yeah. Would send Pep and Klopp mental. No friggin mercy. 1927 Blackpool home and away, 1929 Bradford City home and away, on successive days. Just imagine the...

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

Eh? There was interest in setting up football clubs locally in Nov / Dec 1871 - because the FA Cup had just started with Marlow and Maidenhead competing. Henley were formed about this time. It's theoretically possible that Reading could have been formed on 25 Dec 1871 but there's no evidence to sup...

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

This is an internet myth as far as we know. There is no contemporary evidence of a foundation date or meeting. Extremely unlikely it would have been before Nov 1871. Not before November? It definitely can't be Xmas Day then. Eh? There was interest in setting up football clubs locally in Nov / Dec 1...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

People talk about projected deaths, but noone talks about projectOR deaths. How many people die from projectors falling off the ceiling and landing on their heads? I have a large 4K Epson projector hanging right up above where I sit on my sofa. That's a much bigger threat to me than corona. I'm thin...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Zonal marking is what nearly everyone has used nearly all the time for at least fifteen years. These days you only really see man marking: - At set pieces - To deal with a specific threat (e.g. Jorginho under Sarri) - As an extremely defensive strategy aimed at securing a 0-0 against a better side ...

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

Thanks for that, lets hope by Feb 2022 we are all healthy and we can enjoy the anniversary.. Do you know the actual day we were founded. The badge always said 1871 but have never even thought to check what day that year the club was formed. Poor supporter that I am. Christmas Day, 1871. This is an ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Remember also that there are several promising treatments (not vaccines) that are already in use for other things (may not be licensed but can still be prescribed) that are ready to go. So to my mind it's not simply a case of flattening the curve. Plus there's a chance for those with asthma/COPD/hyp...

Re: Impact on players form

Interesting thread, I was going to start something similar myself or pop it in the coronavirus thread. My Q wasn't so much specific player form - I think we'll have to assume everyone will be starting from scratch. Tired players like Ejaria will likely shine, I think that's all I'd be willing to bet...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Can I suggest we start a separate thread for lay stat bashing / panic/ anxiety and leave this for the HNA community to use to discuss coronavirus and its implications in a calm sensible way?

Mods?

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

The good news is that sex is protective against coronavirus.

Stats clearly show that in general sexually active populations are at less risk of dying from it.

Less loo roll needed too.

Hating it. If only because of my footy hating wife and friends saying "see, you don't need footy! They're overpaid etc" Well these guys, highly paid as they may be, spend the precious days of their lives working incredibly hard from a young age to be able to work (if they make it, and if n...
