Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

I think I’d be more worried about the likes of Fulham, West Brom or Sheff United coming in waving their Premier League rejects wad and coming after him, than bottom half of the table Forest, European Cups and all.

leon Lads. Can we just agree that he’s a fat potato headed cnut who manages a shit team of dreary East Midlands cloggers and be done with it?


I agree. Hair weave granny shagging potato headed Cnut. Wooney, not you, obviously.

Re: Rumour - Kyle Edwards

Even in the post-Covid climate, we should have got at least double for Olise Someone, apologies to that person as I have forgotten who it was, posted a link to a really interesting article about Olise, and how he has unshakeable confidence that he will reach the very top, and each club choice and d...

Re: Rival Watch

So - Rooney's been photo'd intoxicated in a hotel on snapchat during pre-season with women. Obvs not accusing him of anything but how would we feel about it if it was someone in our coaching staff? Surely he's on borrowed time.... Wayne said two days ago that it is his job to “bring some dignity an...

What about Farmfoods? Hmmm, Not sure, but I am always being spammed up by them with money off vouchers, normally I just throw them away…. They're grooming you. :lol: Normally I would say balding overweight blokes in their 50s being groomed does seem like a role reversal, but you could be on to some...

Re: How many players will we sign this summer?

A fit Swift will go a long way towards compensating for the loss of Olise. I can't help but think Meite will be the bigger loss this season. He just has the knack of digging in and popping up with vital goals when things aren't going our way. Totally agree. We will miss Meite big time, he has pace ...

Mr Optimist It will always be the Madejski. Although it is a relatively new stadium like ours I don’t know of any Southampton fans who call St Mary’s the Vagisil Area.
A predictable “corrected for you” post :?


It took me about three reads before I spotted your correction :lol:

Re: Ex Players

Talking of stalkers is there anything in the book about his arrest in 2005 for spying on a woman from bushes outside her house? Pornographic material found in the bush and a discarded bottle of baby oil. He was at a low ebb and drinking heavily at the time apparently.

Rangers 150th Anniversary Kit Would be great if the club organised a friendly between the clubs really. Always been surprised there’s not more of an affiliation between us. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0398/8553/7446/products/TM0095B-BLUE_1_2048x.jpg?v=1624557068 10th anniversary etc etc

Re: Season 2021-2022 Fixtures

Silver Fox I predict we will play the other 23 teams twice, once at home and once away.

I also predict that some people will say the last six games constitute a tough run in


That is assuming no teams in the Championship go pop during the course of the season!

Re: Euro 2020

On the Scotland rivalry thing, the same thing applies in Wales. I have lived in North Wales for over 20 years now and my wife is from North Wales. The Celts stick together and love and revel in their underdog status. It is built in to their DNA to want England to do badly in any sport, most Scots wi...

Re: Rumour - Muhamed Besic

I'd probably say Evans was a 5.5 - 6.5 player. Rino is your quintessential 7/10 guy. Just always good, rarely spectacular. And Chris Gunter was definitely a consistent 6/10, generally if someone asked how he did you'd shrug your shoulders and say "He was alright I guess" Yeah. 6/10 is ok,...

Re: Who do you WANT to win the play-offs?

I know we disagree on most things, and here we go again. You admit your support for RFC is marginal and that your first love is Liverpool and that you also go and watch Fulham ( more than RFC a couple of seasons ago, at least). So you are immune to the pettiness I have of hoping that, for example, ...

Re: Mike Conroy

You are definitely thinking of David Crown, who left to go to Cambridge and had a new lease of life as a forward instead of on the right wing where he played for us. I thought he was pretty decent for us during his time here. Going back to Mike Conroy, I may have tried to blot this from my memory as...

Re: Who do you WANT to win the play-offs?

Being based in North Wales, purely selfishly I would like Blackpool to come up for a trip to the Vegas of the North, assuming we will be able to by then, so I am pleased with the result. I am not sure why anyone would want Oxford to go up. I get the local rivalry aspect, and while the joys of skirmi...
