Re: QPR have bid turned down for McAnuff......

One thing's for sure - any Premier League scouts watching will see how Kebe and Sig were stifled and probably decide that they are not up to scratch. So to get a point and for that to happen will do for me. :?

Re: Where have all the fans gone?

Depends what going to football is all about for you. Like I say, if the quality of the football is the be all and end all, lets face it, you'd just stay at home and watch the premier league on the box. But going to football is more than that. Fair point - I shouldn't have said "complete waste&...

Re: QPR have bid turned down for McAnuff......

Really? I thought it was one of his worst performances - joys of football huh that two people can have such polar positions on a player's performance. Two, three, four...an infinite number of opinions. Mine is he was poor, but certainly not disinterested. He always battles hard enough, but remains ...

Re: Where have all the fans gone?

Forest brought 3,551 last season to the Madejski according to their figures. They looked to be around a 1,000 lower than that this season. Yeah, that's what I thought. Had a mate who booked tickets on Friday night and was quite limited on choice for two together. So I reckon a combination of Forest...

Re: QPR have bid turned down for McAnuff......

Depends what McAnuff we are left with, should he stay. If it's the completely disinterested waster we saw on Saturday then we're be better off with the money and finding a replacement. If we can get back the McAnuff we had in the back end of last year, then he needs to stay. Really? I thought he wa...

Bertrand v Griffin is the one that concerns me. Ryan has a knack of winning penalties from right-backs.

So an expensive wage-earner gone... enough for a CB? Not on your nelly. And a worrying sign in my opinion. We're willing to let him go for free just to get him off the payroll.

Re: England footballer wins gagging order

What does a typical 'expose' involve? Four pages in the News of the World that make derogatory claims about the alleged 'wrong-doer'. I'd try to stop such a story getting published about me*, especially if it were false. A story in the papers can damage someone's reputation beyond anything that can...

Re: Who would you sell to fund buying a new center back?

the key problem is whether we want to pay over and above our current top wage, for an "ageing" "back up" centre back I thought we were talking about an injection of experience, like that which kept us up last season. Take your point on wages though, and so long as we don't get i...

Re: Who would you sell to fund buying a new center back?

Clearly everyone knows that we need another center back (or for mills or Ivar to be injured/suspended all the time) so out of our real saleable assests McAnuff, Kebe and the sig who would you sell? I would go with McAnuff and try and squeeze every penny out QPR as I could. Out of the three you list...

Spot on. But I wonder whether Madejski will ever realise that he alone is not big or powerful enough to buck the 'system' that is modern day English professional football. The rules of the game have been very clearly set and if you really want to succeed then you have no option but to play by them....

And now Cardiff have Belllamy using money they don't have. It's a disgrace and I won't be parting with a penny more to support such a corrupt and unjust system (and yes, I know it's my club that feels that most, but there is a principal at stake here). Why does everyone think this is the case? They...
