Oh God, it's just happened...

Under Sir Steve Coppell, it was Convey and Kitson, Wolves away, Boxing Day, 2005. Under Sir Brian McDermott, it was Hunt and Harte, M'Boro away, 2012. Under Jaap Stam OBE, I think it might have been last night. That moment when - despite knowing Reading FC's tendency to break your heart and shatter ...

Re: BFTG - Burton

I'm desperately trying to find it, but about five years ago I posted a post/tirade at a fan who accused Brian McDermott's title winning team of playing "boring, soulless football" - it was about the time everyone started getting moist about Barcelona/La Liga. We now play that style of foo...

Re: "Doing a Leicester" - Your Thoughts

A few posters have mentioned this, but don't you find it odd that the two teams that have got promoted to the Premier League weren't fancied to do anything? 106 was slightly different as it soon became apparent that we had constructed a super team, but we weren't fancied to do anything at the start....

"Doing a Leicester" - Your Thoughts

Seen as we're flirting with a surprise promotion bid, I wanted to test the waters to see if the usual (which I include myself in occasionally!) "I don't want us to get promote to watch us get smashed every week" crowd feel any different after Leicester City won the Premier League? For me, ...

Re: EP Spaculation - out of contract strikers

One of my favourite 'silly season' discussions this one, Klose would be the pick of these players we definitely won't get. I do like to think we might have more of a chance with Jaap as manager, but these are still never going to happen. I would love it if agents started listing players like this on...

Re: Rumour - Rafael van der Vaart

Wayne Bridge is the best comparison so far. It would be literally gorgeous if we signed him, but I fear he'd spend most of the time injured/down Mandela Court. (RIP).

Not something I hear very often on this portal.

To be fair, nobody agrees with anybody on here....even if they are in complete agreement. I'm the Corbyn of this board, looking for a new kind of forum politics.

Re: Anton Ferdinand

Agree with the Sandman re: performance and would give him a new contract, with some sort of release/rolling/year-by-year clause if he's going to be injured for 80% of a season. You can be unlucky, but you can also be injury prone through your own mismanagement, so we need some protection/way of gett...

Re: Loyalty?

I'm sorry, but this argument 'how many of us have been in the same situation?' simply doesn't apply in the same way to football. I've listened to a few offers this year and of course I only had myself/family in mind...but I don't have 20,000 people calling themselves my Barmy Army and spending their...

Re: RUMOUR: Clarke to Fulham

Gr8 news. Hopefully the Board will provide more generous funding in January so that SC can complete the task of transforming us into a midtable Championship side. I'm all for hilarious negativity, but you are a touch harsh on Clarke. If we don't finish in or around the play-offs this season, I'm fa...

Re: One Hundred and Six

My "moment I knew" was Wolves away in that memorable season. Glen Little terrorised Joleon Lescott all game, they were highly fancied and we just bossed them from start to finish. Still get upset that we got so much wrong in that second season in the Premier League - could have consolidate...

I would never reveal such information.

Kwesi Appiah

Have it from a good media source that Kwesi Appiah will join us between now and the start of the season. Seems very odd given he's a less successful Dominic Samuel, but seems too random not to be true. Watch this space.

Re: Unbelievable

In an era in which football grounds are becoming increasingly soulless, I would have welcomed this bit of continental flair - but bad taste given the ground.

Hardly Charlie Hebdo, but a touch provocative. Equally, I'm not losing any sleep about it.

Re: BFTG - Bradford

Just got back - funny game to call. Overall - We had them on the back foot without really doing much in the first half, they did the same to us in the second half. - The pitch really was that bad. It just goes to show how important advances in pitch maintenance over the years has been for football. ...

Re: Wolves - back from the sofa

Positives: - Scored three goals against a team that had barely conceded all season. - Good 'grit' to come back twice. We 100% wouldn't have done that last year. - Simon Cox/Glenn Murray look like they've been playing together forever. Really good to watch. - Happy for Jake Taylor. I think he's actua...

Re: RUMOUR - Glen Murray

Bit of insider information from me, (see Wayne Bridge signing for my credentials of ACTUALLY being in the know) we put in a bid while Pulis was still in charge. Parish accepted (as he wanted the money for Conor Wickham of all people?!) Pulis rejected the offer because he really liked Murray - so it ...
