Re: Have we sold the Mad Stad to the owners/someone else?

The Ricoh Stadium was sold to Wasps’ owners a few years ago for, effectively, £21m. SISU had hoped to pick it up for significantly less which is why they got incredibly tetchy when they were outflanked by Derek Richardson and his partners. Have to remember the land around the Madejski was sold for a...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

A real low for me in terms of our fan base. Its slowly receding yet we all know it will be back in full force when results wont go Bowen's way. Utter cringefest. We really do have the most embarrassing fans of all football fans on social media. Twitter is just what it is. Full of muppets What I tak...

Re: Ex Players

A decent listen, and a complex character, our Dave, pulls no punches. Still remains my ‘modern day’ hero I didn’t really buy much of Kitson’s interview. Thought he came across as a bit of a knob-end deliberately taking a contrarian view, because it actually gets him notoriety. Even though he says h...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

He seemed to suggest he was surprised by Gomes sacking, so may well have been consulted and said, he thinks he'll turn it around. I think people have read too much into him being in charge of footballing matters. For a change I tend to agree with Ian here about the level of influence he had as Spor...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

It would be interesting to know who else was interviewed for the job, who else was sounded out but said no. If others were interested, was Bowen doing the interviewing.. Who interviewed Bowen. It feels very shabby to come in in March, and 6 months later have sacked the manager having potentially be...

Re: CONFIMRED - Mark Bowen

haven't read the whole thread, so may have already been said. However, what if Bowen was actually much more influential behind the scenes last season than we all know. We seemed to do better after he joined, but that's partly due to Gomes getting his feet under the table as well. Maybe, just maybe,...

Re: BFTG Bristol

There's a subscription based coaching thing on Twitter called Coaches Voice. They released some previews a couple of weeks ago, one of which was Jose Gomes. One thing I remember (though not specifically a centre back in the penalty box demo) was for players to mark spaces when defending outside the ...

Re: BFTG Bristol

Watching highlights on Quest and MOTD just shows how many goals come from getting the ball into the box early. Something we just do not do, and haven’t done for many seasons. Doesn’t matter if it is wingers or full backs. Just get in in the box. We also lack pace in the squad, thus making it easier ...

Re: BFT ???????????????????????????????????????????

Didn't make the game last night, but at one down and reduced to 10 men against a good side, Gomes should have settled for damage limitation imho. Take Barrett off and replace with Pele, drop Meite deeper & wide right, Ejaria to the left of midfield and leave Puscas on his own. Replace Puscas aft...

Ticket error

Having not renewed my ST this season I’m taking the opportunity to try seats in different parts of the ground. So for yesterday I booked a ticket in row G in Y23, the only one that was available. I made the booking via a phone call to the ticket office. I was a bit surprised when a guy turned up and...

Re: The next 6 games.

Will we be better against teams that want to play football rather than have a tight set up, making life difficult for us, rather than concentrating on winning the game themselves? We’ve really struggled in the past few seasons against organised teams at the Madejski. Our best performances at home ha...

Re: BFT whatever the hell that was

I wouldn't be too quick to ditch the 5 at the back as that's also the formation we've looked best using...….But it doesn't work when Moore is on the right, Miazga has to be there. And Joao can fukk right off. Meite or Boye in with Puscas for me We are badly missing Miazga. Joao has been a big disap...

Well given he was the one funding the deal that would make sense. Also the one who eventually killed it. Almost as if he had a plan.....

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

IMO squad depth is quite patchy. Looks like we have 6-7 strikers / forwards now, so Nova and Loader will have limited options for game time. Interesting that Loader made the bench at West Brom rather than Baldock (who actually would have been a decent option the other night to replace the tiring Boy...

Re: BFTG WBA

Overall decent performance and would have taken 1-1 all day long before kick off. But feels a bit disappointing to drop 2 points now. Rafa 7 - actually had nothing to do in the first half. Looked like a really good save in the second but was largely untroubled (a sign of a solid defensive display in...
