A small glimpse of things to come, I'd imagine. Nothing wrong with it, mind you. No harm done.

Not sure how i'll feel when they force us to stand for the Thai national anthem before games though.

Not yet! Wait until the Mad Stad declares Independence from the Empire, then we're in trouble!

No, Saturday before kick off.

Facebook and Twitter comments are in draft coming out soon building up to the announcement and parade before kick off.

So remember your passports on Saturday as former car park staff (now border control guards) will be carrying out checks...

Isaac Hunt That was also on the back on the programme.

Not surprising. Thais are (required to be) patriotic. I was in Chiang Mai once when the whole of a night market stopped to sing the national anthem on the King's birthday. I believe that every household and business must also display a picture of the King at all times.

I guess it helps then that we're The Royals...... hopefully it's too late to change the club anthem to the Thai National Anthem

and make sure you pack your own bags before entering/don't carry anything into the ground for others as there may be a high price to pay if your caught bringing contraband into the ground e.g. bottles with lids on.

Perhaps I have missed something, but is there any more substance to this consortium yet other than some old woman posing with JM, some ego-tripper on FB trying to befriend everyone and a full page advert in the programme wishing some Thai woman a happy birthday :?:

Thus far this bunch have made TSI look like an open and honest organisation by comparison :!:

Looking forward to the new owners injecting a little bit of Thai culture round the Madstad. From my experience of visiting the country I guess we can look forward to:
* Incredibly cheap Rolex watches being sold in the Megastore
* Authentic looking kit that transforms from an adult size to a child size on a cold wash
* A selection of precious stones being sold in the concourse at below market prices
* A new look approach to firing t-shirts into the crowd or perhaps RFC branded ping pong balls
* Great tasting,value for money food being sold by street sellers
* A gold statue of Robin Friday meditating
* Reading buses investing in a new fleet of tuk-tuk's

What do you want ?

I'd guess even if they came round your house and went through their bank statements for the last 100 years with you there would still be something for you to moan about. Just accept the fact that SJM is happy and enjoy watching our score come through on the teleprinter on Saturday as you begin your self imposed exile.....

Didn't TSI do the same by putting some money up front for us to sign Jason Roberts?

Soooo. Didn't Samrit say Adkins would have £5-£8m to spend on players. So far they(not Adkins) have signed Anton Ferdinand who we are forcing ourselves to like. And 2 average Championship forwards for a combined fee of £600k who Adkins wanted but probably because he doesn't have £5-£8m to spend . Oh and if were lucky we might get.... Dean Hammond! :roll:

Oh and by the way in the meantime were going to bring in a big fee for our first choice centre half. Anyone want to bet we don't spend £1m+ on a quality replacement ?


Pfffttttt.

Don't recall him saying anything of the sort. Perhaps you can find something (actually from him, or someone at the club) to back up the assertion before you complain about it not happening.
