Re: Madejski Out

From the year we moved to the Madejski to the year he sold up, we had only one bottom half finish in 15 seasons. The year we finished 18th in the Prem on goal difference. Just think though. What if he'd dug even deeper into his own pocket and invested more into the club. You know, ditched all his pr...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Lots of comments saying things changed when McD was sacked in 2013. That was most definitely the turning point for me. I left that Villa game, his last in charge, thinking this just isn’t my club anymore. The players and manager massively overachieved and they were s real credit to the club. And how...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Much of the longer standing supporters are slowly drifting away, or at least to a lot fewer games. Me included. Everything about the club has changed and its just not the same anymore. Results will return, but the old days will not. Attending football at this level offers very little enjoyment to th...

Re: The Non - League thread

I am attempting to go to a game in every round of the FA Vase this season. Started with Chippenham Park 0 - 4 Bitton on Sunday. Att: 61. Chippenham Park (Step 6) are the development team for Chippenham Town. Basically an U23 set up. They were no match for Bitton from The Western League Premier (Step...

Re: The Non - League thread

Far too early to start commenting on table etc. but has anyone been to Maidenhead yet ? Is their slow start down to misfortune and early season mistakes or could they be in for a tough season with 4 relo spots up for grab Yeah think this will be a long, hard season for them. Can see them going down...

Re: Record Watch 2018/19

I always look for teams who are 'chucked in' for the 106. Like Newcastle have been a couple of times.

Sunderland, the team we took the record off, look the only team completely out of sink atm.

FAC Extra Prelim Rnd
Ardley United 7 - 0 Shortwood United.
At: 95

Hosts dominated throughout. Shortwood resigned from Southern League last year and had a team full of kids.

Contender for easiest ground to find. Literally a stones throw from J10 of the M40.

Scours Lane is possibly the worst footballing venue ive ever visisted. Its close between their and Whitehawk. Mind the razor wire and disgarded building materials.

Re: The Non - League thread

Really don't have a problem with Salford. They are building up a football club from virtually nothing. the ex Man Utd lot certainly don't appear to be in it for the publicity. You hardly ever hear from Butt and Scholes who actually come across as quite camera shy. I genuinely think they are doing it...

Re: England’s World Cup Finals 2018

Its amazing the negative stats being thrown around about England. 3 defeats, only beat rubbish. Some people were mentioning that we only has 7 shots on target in the tournament, which was less than Saudi Arabia. I presume that was just made up because we had 6 shots on target in the first 45 mins of...

Re: Best of the World Cup?

Modric getting Golden Ball was a bit bizarre. It was almost like an unlucky loser award.

Mbappe, Pogba, Kante, Hazard all ahead of him in my book.

Re: The Non - League thread

The difference in travel between those two Southern League divisions is a bit daft though. And West looks quite a bit more difficult too. Shame for Fleet, but not sure what else could be done. I think they could have just not replaced Shaw lane and left a gap in their division for one year. Seems t...

Re: The Non - League thread

Apparently the appeals on the reshuffle caused by Shaw Lane’s demise are to be heard on Monday. All strikes me as being a bit late in the day, aren’t the Step 1-4 fixtures usually due out in the first week of July? By the way, when is the equivalent “Rothmans” yearbook for the non league game usual...

Re: The Non - League thread

Promotion must be realistic for Salford surely? They're bookies favourites but I don't understand how? They've just been promoted. There's way better teams in the league in my view; Wrexham, for example. Because they have a far greater budget than anyone else in the division. They will probably hav...

Re: The Non - League thread

Now there are 4 divisions at step 3, does that mean the bottom 4 in NLS and the bottom 4 in NLN will be relegated to accommodate 2 promotion places in each Step 3 division? There was talk of there being a "Super play off" at Step 3 so that only 6 teams from theat level went up. A terrible...
