YateleyRoyal How would you define bigger, Kes?


In this case, I don't think I have to define 'bigger' as it's so obvious, Forest and Sheff Wed are.


So you can't?


Hey, if your knowledge of football is that bad, don't turn this around on me. :lol:

Dennis Irwin said on Irish TV last night that Man Utd will announce a massive signing in the next 48 hours (or something like that)

I currently like how sports reporters are pronouncing Marcos Rojo's surname as 'Rowho'

I am not a fan of Di Maria at all. brushed off the ball so easily and spends 50% of the game rolling around 'injured'.

Martin Kelly to Crystal Palace for £1.5m. Looked an England prospect before his knee injury.

Andre Wisdom on loan to WBA for the season.

Not knowing that Sheff Wed and Forest are bigger clubs than Reading is lack of knowledge. Getting all defensive about it is even more LOLworthy.

It's more of an opinion than knowledge though isn't it :? , and what you judge bigger to mean?

I would judge how big a club is on a few things, fanbase and history being the main ones, meaning of course Sheff Wed and Forest are much bigger clubs that little old Reading. Others may judge it on how successful they have been in the recent history, or how much money their owners have to throw around etc.

Saints fans in the office moaning that the club are looking at bringing in "that f*****g diver Shane Long" to replace folk heroes such as Lallana and Lambert.
I did point out that their penalty chances would improve but they still weren't happy as they no longer have a star penalty-taker such as Lambert (or Le Tis) to take advantage.
The natives really are not happy.

They must love having Ronald Koeman as manager then.

If I were them, I'd be more p1ssed for spending £10m on a Celtic keeper.
