Re: BFTG - Charlton

Another thing on Rafael's penalty kick routine. I believe he will save a higher than average number of PKs through using it but will look an above average clown on most of the occasions when the player taking the penalty scores. Exactly the same can be said in reverse of Taylor's (and our Pele's) pe...

Re: BFTG - Charlton

That wasn't good. Not at all Actually, I have to say I enjoyed the first half. Was a really good half of 0-0, we could have had two and Charlton looked dangerous. But boy did Bowyer suss us out. They dominated the whole of the second half. We were overrun in midfield and Puscas we beyond useless. J...

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

I think the time has come when you have to question this now. Absolutely no noise again yesterday. I'll I could see was over enthusiastic geeks jumping up and down clapping with big smiles in their faces. Charlton out sung them easy. Huddersfield have to be the benchmark if you want to create a 'si...

Re: Blue-collar streetfood

I must say the fresh cooked real potato chips were pretty damn good yesterday and very generous portions for £4.

Also liked the Ox Heart from the Peruvian stall.

Re: BFTG - Plymouth (A)

I get the Meite love in,and he works really hard to be effective. However yet again that was a poor penalty last night,and he was lucky their goalie jumped out of the way. As of last night I am not really concerned about who takes the penalties,but a tight league game is another matter entirely. I ...

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

For the first time in ages teams will be starting to worry about playing us, rather than looking forward to it. Leeds fixtures permitting, expect to see some more stupid kickoff times as Sky realise Reading FC 19/20 are an entertaining team to watch!

Re: BFTG Huddersfield Away

I think we all need to calm down. Yep. Way too early for all this promotion talk. It’s still August. Yeah they battered us for the first 30 mins, and although they didn't get a shot on target they still had a couple of near misses. We looked knackered, should have started Rino to give some energy a...

Re: Huddersfield (A)

Club are offering free travel so you could effectively go away and watch your team, who are showing good signs, play away at Huddersfield for £30. And people complain. If it was £25 People wouldn't be complaining so you're basically quibbling over a fiver which is less than a pint. Our fans are a j...

Re: BFTG WBA

I suspect some of the player ratings may have ended up getting subconsciously downgraded due to disappointment with the final result. I thought it was another great team performance, playing classy, attractive football. Given that, some of the ratings appear slightly low IMO. Pundits, neutrals and s...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

The ref was pretty average to poor until about 60 odd mins when he picked up what Cardiff were up to and started pulling them up for their multiple fouls Joao did fall over too easily, but he was still being constantly kicked, pulled and wrestled before the ball came to him. You're not actually all...

Re: Gunter, GMac and 'the Reading way'?

Is forcing these two players to train with the U23s really the right option for a reputable club like Reading? How can anyone say that Danny Loader should apologise for agreeing terms with Wolves; that Yakou Meite should apologise for telling fans that they have a short memory when defending Modou ...

Re: BFTG - HULL CITY (AWAY)

In case you`ve not seen the penalty shout. I think that pretty conclusive Zip. https://twitter.com/Keir_Tomlin/status/1160207912498802688 It's hard to tell, but that has a strong whiff of Meite tapping his ankle against the keeper's shin and chucking himself to the ground. Not that it wouldn't be g...

The point is the name on his shirt is Gimes so it is entirely reasonable to call him that. Any opportunity to have a go at Tim though... Did you not hear his reasoning? Nothing to do with his shirt, everything to do with Tim deciding he wasnt good enough for the name everyone else calls him. Out of...
