Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Thank goodness the dreadful decision by Marriner not to give a penalty made no difference to the result. The mighty reds go marching on but have a difficult game away at Chelsea next week but win that and I think they will now become favourites with Laporte out for City for 6 months. How bad is Joh...

Re: Anton took money!!

I heard it on BBC Berks or at least part of it. SJM said there were warning signs early on, There was a clause that mean't the club reverted back to SJM, However the club that reverted back to him was in debt to 3rd parties and SJM coughed up something like £1.6m to keep the club going and that the...

Re: Bury Vote

They would have been relegated anyway so this wouldn’t be any punishment for not fulfilling the season.

For that reason it needs to be somewhere in the non-League

Re: MATCHWATCH : Plymouth Argyle (a) sponsored by Glen Little

Shambolic goal For the ref given the ball went way over the goal line and was hauled back into play by Argyle. Now is the time for some of our boys to be become men. No-one else notice that the Plymouth scorer was clearly offside. He was even off the pitch, which makes returning without the referee...

Re: New chant idea!

Let's say one of the opposition players is northern, was born out of wedlock and refers to a six sided cube with numbers on it as a "dice".... "Die" "die" "die", you b*stard "Die" "die" "die", you b*stard "Die" "di...

Re: Sone Aluko to China!

Apart from any of us who have to watch him in a Reading shirt again. God no. If we were playing a 4-2-3-1, for sure I’d like to see him return in the right attacking midfield role. In that formation, the fullbacks carry out the role on the flanks and it gives Aluko more of a free roam position. It ...

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

Took us 9 games last season to reach 7 points (8 after 9 games actually) and that included some extremely winnable games, particularly at home.

5 games in and 7 points - I'll stick with the manager making whatever decisions he thinks fit, so far.

Re: VAR

Not a fan of having a number of reviews per team.

That would supply a means of stopping the opposition from attacking, or could contravene the ‘must be within the last 15 seconds’ view of Neil Swarbrick if the ball is allowed to stay in play and have the review when it goes out.

Re: VAR

Today’s incidents have put the final nail in the coffin of VAR for me. David Silva clearly trodden on, which is a foul, but no penalty given. Harry Kane taken out even more clearly , but no penalty given. Can’t even see why Mike Dean didn’t give it on first viewing. Law states “trips or attempts to ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

Yes they can, when Little came back, he wanted shirt number 77 and the football league said no. Clearly, the EFL haven't said no to using number 32. No, obviously, but if they think it breaches sponsorship rules, they will bar Derby from using it for Rooney's shirt. You'd have to be pretty naive to...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ovie Ejaria

If you need it explained, you're probably not going to understand the explanation. But. East isn't sponsored by 32 red. The number 32 in isolation isn't advertising. So, in essence, you’ve completely missed the point of my post. If Derby change their number colour to red and give Rooney the squad n...
