Re: Back from the game - Middlesboro (A)

Though to be fair on the evidence of that photo there are more Reading fans than 'Boro.

I feel bad now, it's only 90 miles for me and still didn't bother going as everyone predicted we would lose.

Re: Scunthorpe (a) COC Predictions

RFC to win three nil.

A evening in Scunthorpe is bad enough without the added extra misery of losing.

Re: What's the story with ALF & Adkins?

Adkins tried to sign him when he was manager at Scunthorpe but ALF turned him down saying he didn't rate his playing tactics or managerial style. They have been sworn enemies ever since. Thought everyone knew that.

Re: Team for Utd Away

The manager was sacked because we need a change to what has gone before, yet most of the team selections on here a largely exactly the same as previous matches, so what was the point. We need something more radical. I would go: ----------------------Whoever's fit------------------- ----------Mariapp...

Re: We can still stay up!

With my RTG positive head on I think we could still get to 36 points. It might just be enough.

However once the Saturday night alcohol wears off I will realise that in reality we are fecked. Hope Doncaster and Sheffield united get promoted for some local games next season.

Re: Sunderland predictions

Re: SIGNED: Nicky Shorey

Good signing. Maybe the plan is a job share with Ian Harte. Both slightly old, slightly slow left backs but both almost warrant a place in the side for their free kick and corner taking skills alone. If they can manage 45 minutes each then we have 90 minutes of potential superb dead ball delivery to...

All those spells out on loan. His career had clearly lost all direction untill he signed for Tom Tomsk.

Re: Guardian Championship 2011-12 Fans Blog...

What I meant was teams like Derby, Forest and Leeds have London branches who would bring 50+ members to a game at the Mad Stad. We do not as far as I am aware have a Manchester or Newcastle branch of the supporters club. Of course I know there are lots of Royals who live in various parts of the UK ...

But we could still fail to win the title. I say avoid the inevitable title run in collapse and sack McDermott now, bring in a decent manager.

Re: Leeds (H) - Good Friday

Two one to Leeds and the start of a six match losing run which sees us miss out on automatic promotion.

Why wait for the inevitable to happen. I say, sack McDermott now.

Re: Elm Park: Which current ground most similar?

I've always followed Morton's results since learning from my 1975 Subutteo Kit Colour Chart that they played in blue and white hoops the same as Reading.

Can you buy Ferguson's Chocolates in Waitrose? That would be another 'spooky' link.
