Re: Finance

Have read quite a lot of stuff about football having to recalibrate its finances, wage ceilings, etc etc. It's nonsense really. There may be a short term shock for some clubs but when football restarts proper the same economics will be in play as ever. That being that the clubs with the most money w...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

I've started videoing from my isolation-flat. Thatcham is (so far) more or less as busy. Free Car Park in Thatcham Broadway full. At 10 AM on a Sunday it's empty Doesn't look like people are taking this seriously (yet) I beg to differ I think a lot of people are shitting themselves now. It’s stupid...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

Seriously, the EFL and the PL are useless.....They have had ages to call these matches off or make a decision. So what do they do? They decide one day before a full fixture weekend where fans/clubs etc are planning for tomorrow and now wil most likely frantically have to run around cancelling tomor...

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

i think the logical thing to do would be postpone the leagues, then play the remaining games late May and June because I think Euro 2020 will be put off till next year. Start next season in September and cancel the cup comps. Play the remaining games when the virus is expected to be at its peak. Go...

Norfolk Royal Can’t find the game by following the links to it. The FA fb page doesn’t have a link to it and the link on here doesn’t find it either. Anyone know where it is. Only have iPhone on me.

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

The comment about the modern player not being two footed is very true.When I first started watching football,all the top footballers use to comment about working on their weaker foot.I seem to recall that our 2005 side only had one player who was genuinely two footed,and that was Doyle.Even at the ...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

By mid-morning of the day after nearly everything has been said. Two very simple things picked up by Sandy and Roller: Throw-ins-for so many years now we just throw the ball away We don't need all our players back for corners-not only do they get in each others' way but the ball is cleared to nobod...

Can't believe nobody has mentioned the artificial leg incident at the Saints home game. Pics in the EvPo and everything.

Re: Elm Park Years

Great memories I must say. Remember all those games from that era although think I wasn't living in Reading at the time of the Bristol City game so missed that one. Being beaten up or at least being in fear of extreme violence while attending a football match as a teenager at that time was very much...

Re: BFTG - Baggies

Frustrating game to watch. We've got players with a lot of talent but there are several missing links holding us back. The Joao injury is the obvious as he was holding the ball up and bringing others into the game and on good form when he got injured. Meite is not that sort of player and is most eff...

Re: Ayub Timbe.

Problem is Renhe got relegated. If they'd stayed in the top league, I suspect Aluko may have been open to it. Not now. Although I guess there are other factors which might make him think twice about going back to China :? well yep. More likely to get flu in this country at this time of the year.

We got around 6500 for Sheffield Utd and about 9000 v Bolton I think in the fag end of Stam’s management. The Sheff Utd game was the coldest I have ever been at a match. It was about -9c.

Additionally is Cardiff one of the free travels?


Apparently they actively encourage you to get as drunk as possible. The no drinking thing is just a sham.
