Re: Coronavirus outbreak

state of play: flu deaths this winter (so far) = 109,000 (no lock down, no panic and happens every year ) Corona virus deaths (so far) = 14,700 (lock down, massive panic, destroying world economy, one off event ) +1 Not worth the recession that’s coming, people are stupid. I fear you are right. Fra...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So Italy is suffering a death rate double the rest of the world it seems. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it due to more elderly being infected? Is there an age breakdown for those affected? Could just be due to a different testing regime, as the reported death rate is against the amount of...

Re: End of Season Club Dinner

Love the "just" £90 for a 3 course meal and probably a cheap glass of wine that would normally cost no more than £30 in total. So having paid to watch the game you are then paying a charge of around £60 for the privilege of meeting players who we have paid this season for their work. Not ...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

It’s potentially very messy. There remains the prospect of the games being played behind closed doors just to bring the season to a conclusion. I don’t like the idea of points being carried over to next season. We have to do SOMEthing for Leeds. Cough Well that was effing irresponsible - coughing i...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

All FL games postponed, currently until weekend 3/4 April. Stoke, Derby and Brentford games now to be rearranged. Presuming the next thing could be the cancellation of the Euros and extension of league seasons. Could be issues for non league clubs with cash flow if those leagues also do the same. h...

For the love of God why?, dont you think our country is full?, whats wrong with taking in some homeless Vets? instead of importing problems for the rest of us. Are you Owen Jones?.

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Another reason why we should close our boarders and end the freedom of movement. Because, of course, none of our own citizens will have travelled and brought it back into the country! And there will still be 'freedom of movement' with the necessary visa/passport. It was our own incompetent Governme...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I know football is gentrifying but I think we're a long way from football fans having a slash at half time being indicative of general hygiene standards. Why not? It's a cross section of the population same as people gathered in pubs and clubs, cinemas and theatres. I don't think hand washing is no...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

https://www.readingfc.co.uk/news/2020/march/from-club-to-club-1871--an-open-letter/ Pretty much spot on IMO. However, some fans will occasionally berate a misplaced pass or wayward shot from one of their team's players out of sheer spur of the moment frustration. That's different from giving indivi...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

I agree. When I was a kid I spent years practising kicking a ball against a brick wall at my home in an attempt to make my weaker left foot match the abilities of the right foot. If only modern players had the same determination to improve. Eventually I succeeded and I learned to kick as well with ...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

I thought it was a soft penalty at the time but, having seen the replays it was a very clear and deliberate shove in the back. I also think Puscas had a very good claim for another for us as he was pushed from behind when clear of the defender. Again, night have been 'soft' but it still looked a de...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Meite was fantastic last night and toss up between him and Swift for MOTM. I thought Yiadom had a good game too and generally everyone played well. Our decision making let's us down at times and we need to be quicker with the ball - Ovie especially guilty of slowing the game down. Altho Ovie does g...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I think it's clear Club 1871 has hit rock bottom. They are out of ideas now and need to grow up and put these ridiculous fantasies of turning half the south stand at the Madejski into the Dortmund yellow wall to bed. on the opposition back from the game thread we have "AWetFlannel - I went ton...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Also Swift MOTM for me. What???? Seemingly Swift can do whatever he likes in a Reading shirt and many will label him MOTM or standout. Olise completely outshone him last night as did a few others, don't understand the Swift love. Nothing to do with 'Swift love' last night. If you think that, maybe ...

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Agree with every sentence bar one. There were 3 subs made in first half of ET, Pele, Macca and one for them. Alas it was one of the few things Friend got right last night. Ref’s performance was best summed up by Bowen when asked if he’d had a poor game, his reply was something along the lines of “N...
