John Smith We 100% won't be relegated this season and anyone to suggest so simply is not a supporter.


I think we will be John Smith

Why do you not think we will?

I just feel there are three worse sides than us in the division: your Derbys, your Blackpools, your Coventrys...

Re: THE BETTING THREAD

Pepe the Horseman One more season bet
Wrexham to win the league
Harry Kane top scorer
Wycombe top 6 finish
FGR to be promoted
Derby to be relegated
£5 pays £3500

Re: George Puscas To Be Loaned Out

I *think* this is right - we are in a similar situation to Derby whereby we can bring in 6 month loans or players on a 1 year deal as long as we don't pay them over X. Decreases the pool of players we can or want to sign though. We'll probably see a few come through the door towards the end of next...

We can sign players if we want. Just not necessarily the ones we want.

I'm tempted to boycott purely down to Gareth Southgate. Let's have this totally right: the bloke has had two of the best squads at his disposal for the last three years and refuses to play the best players, the best players for their particular position or the best formation. We then are given the ...

Re: Ex Players

Incredibly happy to have been part of the Martinez journey. I am not one for following the careers of ex-Reading players too closely but I really saw something in Martinez when he was with us, you could see he was way above Championship level and could go all the way to the top. He is now an establ...

Oh well looks like the dream of taking on the 30k a week wages of 31 year old Harry Arter are over for "John Smith". On the upside, we can now cancel the order for his personal treatment table. The irony being that most sane fans would give their left arm for a player of Arter's quality a...
