Re: Shall we just set up the phoenix club now?

Jagermesiter1871 Can't we just merge with Oxford United and piggy back off their success? Maybe call the team Thames Royals or Valley Royals or something.

I think I was just sick in my mouth a little!

Re: Shall we just set up the phoenix club now?

In all seriousness, how many people are going to watch a make-shift team deep in the bowels of the pyramid at the irredeemable craphole of Scours Lane? With the exception of folded clubs (and FC United), has a single "fans' club" risen from their very modest start? Yes, AFC Wimbledon. Whe...

Re: Season 20/21

Penny for Josh Laurent's thoughts on all this, considering Mark Bowen was the one who convinced him to come here Been talk of him moving up with Bowen, as his assistant. Good move for him if true. I've also heard Dai Yonge is giving Liam Moore the majority share of the club and Nigel Howe is going ...

Re: Players’ relations

In response to a suggestion that we sign Trevoh Chalobah on loan, FDTW joked that we go for a whole team of relations of ex-players. Here’s my attempt: Nikolay Mihaylov (Son of Boris) George Baldock (brother of Sam) Nacho Fernandez (brother of Alex) Trevoh Chalobah (brother of Nathaniel) Gilano Wij...

As far as I'm aware this is the entire squad now forgetting the extra three strikers we have.

Good luck to A feds, good guy, good keeper (bar the odd dodgy moment)

Re: Something sinister in the Championship

From what I understand, if Wednesday didn't do the creative accounting they'd have got a punishment for breaching FFP anyway. Presumably if Derby sold the stadium at market value so would they. From what I've heard on the news, Wednesday did sell there stadium but the sale was too late for the FFP ...

Re: Finance

The free market is working pretty well for everyone involved in football who is making money. There's piles of the stuff being shared around. The problem is that free markets involve failure - that's the nature of capitalism - so club failure is a natural part of the system. But then a clubs suppor...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I think the problem for Gomes was that he was unable to manage expectations. He convinced everyone that we will be taking 2 points per game and we will be pushing for promotion. He set expectations too high. He allowed complacency to set in and was clearly out of his depth in the end. He was a grea...

Re: GOMES OUT!

This season we have seen the fall of one of the most popular managers at this club. He was charismatic yes. but can anyone seriously tell me he was going to be the man to take us forward? I feel that the reason for him being so popular was due to the rise of the new 1871 movement at reading. Either ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wolverhampton Wanderers (a) sponsored by Sammy Chung

Howie wasn't even the worst keeper at the club at the time he was here. We had Peter van der Kwaak as well. Not to mention others like Gary Phillips, Nick Colgan and Simon Shepherd. Virginia is definitely deserves to be in that sort of company though. He's been worth a goal start to the opposition ...

Re: SPECULATION - Charlie Austin

No thanks. Past it for me. Rather sign some younger more hungry strikers. Also now we've signed Joao and gonna sign Puscas is there any need for him.

NotARacist Gones just said Puscas and maybe one more :shock: :shock: :shock:

Gotta be Ejaria on a permanent. Liverpool won't loan him and we probably need one more midfielder, I didn't see any creativity in the last game from our midfield.
