Re: The "who do you want next as manager "poll

Anyone who hasn't yet seen Kingsley Royal's application for the job on Twitter will be deluded if they choose anyone else in this thread.

It's the best job application I've seen for a manager's job in my entire football-related life.

(Including the spunking cock.)

Re: Who is your favourite RFC broadcaster of all time?

Mark Gonella. But only because his surname reminded me of a sexually transmitted disease. Did like old Steve Beddow too - fat bugger in a helicopter is all I see when I hear his name. Very soft spot for Maugham - he reported us well. Andy Steggles reminded me of a toothsome fire alarm salesman, for ...

Re: Sack The Manager... REALLY?!

Before the Internet football...and the world...seemed to be far less hysterical. Now, everyone has some kind of agenda to screech about. All short term, all mainly knee-jerkable. But also, football..and the world...seemed a whole lot more mature. All the screeching and impeaching seems so immature. ...

Re: BTFG Middlesborough

I enjoyed the game last night. Thought a draw would have been been a fair result.Gutted to lose with last kick of the ball. Agree with above marks and comments. Very disappointed with Ola John. he was "running" as though he was carrying someone on his back. Luckily the mist lifted in the ...

Re: BFTG - Cardiff

I really think HobNob gets into a mode of always finding fault (The "We're Doomed! Scenario) or it lurches the other way. A side devoid of confidence, is mid-table,has just lost three on the spin is home to a side in 7th and on the up who had just won 3 of their last four games Surely that's p...

Re: Back from the game - Palace

Enjoyed the game Friday night. Reminded me of a top of the table Championship clash the type you'd see around November/December. When Reading got the ball on the ground we looked good, quick-fire passing and making Palace chase. Thought Palace were a real handful going forward, but nothing much abov...

Great to see these players performing to a higher standard and receiving the marks they've accumulated from those who've attended.

Bravo.

It's so pleasing.

Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

Is it too controversial to say that managers now have little influence over anything? Professional footballers are - in the main - glove-wearing, cosseted, sulking, pout-faced, over-coiffured, weak-kneed, sleeve-tattooed sops (babies) who appear to need their egos rubbed to some kind of semi-rigidi...

Re: COMING SOON : Walsall (h) - FA CUP 4th Round - 30 Jan 20

I remember going up to the Bescot, quite early in a Division 2 season, when they were top and we were second. We had a perfectly good goal ruled out, apparently because Martin Butler was climbing on somebody's back. They then scored two goals and Jimmy Mcintyre got a 90th minute consolation. We the...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Loved all the hold me back, and see you outside business at the end. I am guessing what happened after the game is the gorky 15 year old kid with the glasses got back on a supporters club coach. The baldy 55 year old walked back to his parked car muttering his disgust loudly under his breath, while...

Re: Back from the sofa - Brentford (H)

Good game three cracking goals. Brentford deserve credit, unlike us their team was exactly that , a team , who died for their shirt and played well and wherever well organised. We continue to frustrate , there is clearly something missing , I think there is a deep rooted problem with this set of pl...
