What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

Was it family connections? A memorable game? Location? Lifelong thing? Do you still support and follow them? I started to support them properly in 1997 when I first got a season ticket. I was born in North London in Enfield and my family are Spurs fans as are my Mrs family (great grandad has had a S...

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

A lot of players contracts end on 30th June so I would have thought the authorities would want the season to end by this date at the latest. The current season could perhaps restart in May and finish by end June. This assumes the Euros will be put back a year. The new season could then be put back ...

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

There are a oxf*rd tonne of legal implications and financial implications we cannot and have not thought about. Not to mention player contracts which are tied into a certain date or games and appesrences. TV rights? Club finances and other contracts? Insurances for this aren't in place for smaller t...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Question is, why would anyone actually risk it? Because the majority of the population aren't massive pussies. But it would seem some people are complete idiots. But then I see complete idiots on a daily basis in China, and I know the virus spread because of complete idiots who are also not very hy...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Anyone else wondering about Moore's illness now? We've had a few off sick in the last month or two haven't we? Pretty certain there’s been a massive cover up by the club. Explains the Wigan performance. Players seem to have recovered by the time we payed Wednesday luckily. NO! (categorically) If th...

Re: Rival Watch

On what basis are they saying that? I went to the game and staying at my sons up here,. so no idea what Dellor & gooding were saying but stuff on social media has said they are still looking down rather than up. I almost think they want us to go down. Dellor and gooding are two of the most clue...

Re: Rival Watch

Think Barnsley and Luton are going. Depends on how much Charlton will be affected after their home disappointment to Middlesbrough today. Hull are the one side in total free fall (9 defeats and 2 draws from their last 11 league games). The unknown element, of course, is the possible 9 point deducti...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Had a chat with two Liverpool fans at work this afternoon. Cannot believe that they’re both nervous about the PL. WHAAAAAAAAT ? :shock: :shock: However, I do get a little of what they’re saying about a wonderful season could end as a bit of a damp squib. Particularly if they lose to Athletico and t...

Re: European Leagues Thread 2012/2013

:D The Turkish Superlig reads as nuts too. There are 18 teams in the league - 11 changed manager during the summer, and there have been a further 23 managerial changes in the season to date. Kayserispor are on their fourth boss. There are billions of red cards too - once week there were 8, and three...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (h) sponsored by the magic of the cup

I'm not calling for OMA to be banned per se, but you do have a point here. Kes was banned for less too Kes got banned for repeated trolling and bringing threads down. OMA is doing the exact same thing. I also got banned because (in Platypuss words verbatim) The team board is an open forum for the p...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Sheffield United (h) sponsored by the magic of the cup

Does anyone ever get the impression OMA is OMA's alternate personality and everything he says on here is actually directed at himself rather than the rest of us. I think good psychiatrists could write several groundbreaking books about his psychoses. He definitely has something wrong with him. He m...

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

But surely the club knew that having club 1871 would be a massive increase in costs/decrease in income and that this could have happened, and the FP&A team or accountants would have surely budgeted for this? I would be interested to see how much club 1871 is actually costing the club in lost re...

If they were to get 10 stewards in, proper stewards - not the neeks they have from uni who want some cash, who stood there week in week out and formed a relationship with the fans it would be significantly easier to police.
