Re: Chelsea (A) Match Thread *sponsored by Coles Choc ices*

Also, I'm sorry because I know he tries hard, but there is no other team in the premiership who will have to put on a player like Noel Hunt in the hope that he can change a game. I agree with you in general terms, but to be fair to Hunt, he was asked to play his usual game of hurrying defenders and...

Re: Chelsea (A) Match Thread *sponsored by Coles Choc ices*

Anyway, could someone please tell me what Brian said to the media after the game? I'd love it, really love it, if he came out and really slagged off that linesman. It was a strong comment from McDermott. Not in Ferguson's league of berating officials, but definitely a slagging in Brian's world! He ...

Re: Chelsea (A) Match Thread *sponsored by Coles Choc ices*

The last goal is meaningless. I wish you pcunting spastics would shut the fcuk up. Not if we get relegated by one goal diff TBF If we go down on goal difference, it'll be because we didn't pick up enough points throughout the season and we'll deserve it. Accumulate enough points and we won't have t...

My 21 month old son is asleep upstairs, so I'm jumping around in complete silence. My wife thinks I'm mental. Anyone know a good divorce lawyer?!

Re: "Long Ball Reading"

Guthrie now wants the ball all the time which should see us cut out the long ball a bit. On the other hand we now have the Pog, which means we'll do it more! If we start playing long balls towards Pogrebnyak, we'll fail unfortunately. He prefers the ball to feet, similar to Jason Roberts. On the fe...

Re: MOTD Opening Sequence

And did I hear the commentator say 'Alan Federici', or is my hearing on the fritz?

Re: Back from the Game - Stoke City (H)

We mustn't fool ourselves - yesterday was a disappointing performance against a team that we need to finish above if we are to stay up. Sure we had the better of the opening exchanges and were the better team until they scored against the run of play but after that it was like we'd had the wind kno...

Re: Tense, nervous headache?

I'm sure there are lots of reasons why the excitement seems to be less, but for me it's that: 1) We have Stoke up first game, which I expect to be a pretty drab game 2) The biggest reason is that I just can't afford to go to games any more. £25 seemed a lot more affordable. Having said that, I'm sur...

Re: RUMOUR - Jermaine Defoe

McDermott said he'd give the players a chance to shine in pre-season, so the next four games might be quite crucial in his decision making process. Failure to score a few, which is quite possible given the level of opposition we have left, might persuade him that he needs to sign another striker/cre...

Re: Song for Pogrebnyak

POG, POG, wherever you may be!
He scores goals and he joined for free,
And he wears the hoops,
Of super Reading FC,
McDermott's barmy army!

Re: Area of weakness that remains....

Hasn't McAnuff been used almost exclusively in central midfield so far in pre-season?
