Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

this appointment is about as uninspiring as when we announced Pardew, Coppell then McDermott were to be our manager. Never sure about Pardew at first, Coppell I have to disagree with, I was pleased when he was appointed. Did some good work at Crystal Palace. McDermott was one, like Pardew, I though...

Re: England - the future....

Much better from England tonight.Playing at pace and pressing the opposition. Surprised how poor Bulgaria are. Just wondered if they fell to pieces be cause of the goings on. England looked angry and determined and focussed. Bulgaria looked embarrassed and a bit lost and frustrated. Their players h...

Re: England - the future....

AthleticoSpizz Almost sounds like UEFA may be able to allow the score to stand if all other measures fail and England walk-off


Its ironic that the FIFA representative over there is Italian. I'm not casting aspersions but their record on racism in football is horrendous.

Re: England - the future....

Bulgaria has all the feel of the 1970s.
Shit half empty ground with a running track round it.......and Nazis on the terraces. W*nkers.
Not a fan of Gareth Southgate but well done England and him.

SWLR HNA - YAWN!!

Only one important matter by which he will be judged: Pitchside; Suit, tracksuit or Cardi?


Easy, traditional Welshman........scruffy b*stard like Pullis. It will be an outfit made up of different tracksuits like Pullis wears.

Old Man Andrews
paultheroyal "on paper" - he has a decent 6 games to start with....

12 points+ anyone?

If he gets 0 points in the 6 games does he go?


Give him 8

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Given how this has gone down I hope Bowen goes full troll mode and starts Gunter as right back on Saturday. Sure its particularly uninspiring, but isn't the Reading way to give new players and manager at least 45mins of their first match before the motivational booing starts? :D Start walker, Gunte...

Hound far more fun to think he is a big snake who sacked lovely Jose so he could get himself the job he craved though tbf.

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

Old Man Andrews Why aren't supporters allowed to be concerned about this appointment? There are many things that are valid causes for it.


Im bloody concerned I can tell you. Im struggling for positives. I just hope the above comments are true because at the moment my head is telling me this is heading one way.

Bitterly disappointed but Ill reserve judgement and hope all the above is true, Ill back him and hope he proves to be a golden find but he really wasn't what I was hoping for. The club again disregard experience for the "I hope this one works out" appointment again. He has to hit the groun...

Re: Euro 2020

Bale injured again. Bloke is made of extremely weak glass. Not just Bale, but Ramsay and Brooks as well. It hurts us so much in these big games. They are the biggest talents we have. There is a lot of excellent young talent coming through for us but we need those big players for that moment of magi...

Re: Next Manager

IF it is Bowen, surely has to be down to FFP. Also throws into question the Gomes sacking for me too, no secret that he was on a decent sum of money - obviously results didn't help his cause, but does make me think getting his salary off the books and appointing internally could make it a financial...

Re: GOMES OUT!

There's a pretty clear rationale for hiring all our managers except Gomes tbh. Not necessarily worked, which is why I hope we take a different approach this time and go for someone experienced. Our approach since Coppell, for the most part, has been to bring in unknowns or inexperienced managers, p...

football not the winner.


Ireland are an appalling team. It will be no loss if they fail to qualify.


Got no time for them, they kicked us off the pitch in that world cup play off. They were just a bunch of thugs running around the pitch kicking players.

Re: Euro 2020

In the squad but Connor Roberts at right back is a way better option. Fair enough. How likely are Wales to qualify? Unlike many, I like watching home nations play in big competitions Now got a decent chance of qualifying. If we beat Azerbaijan away and Hungary at home I reckon that will be enough r...

URZZZZ Is Gunter out of favour at Wales now too? It's quite sad how far he's fallen from grace
