Forum Reply I've fallen out of love with football at 22:05 4 Dec 2016 Add to that the dreadful play acting that goes on nowadays, when I heard Fabregas was pushed over by Fernandinho, I was expecting a full blown shove similar to the Paolo Di Canio Paul durkin incident. Instead Fabregas stumbles over in slow motion, like a drunken man tripping over his own laces after a having a few too many on new years day.

Forum Reply Callis was on Jools last night... at 22:52 5 Oct 2016 I'll catch up with the other performances at some point, I happen to think this was a pretty solid performance though, not ground breaking but pretty good all the same. Voice held quite well, but I get what you are saying.
Forum Reply Somebody offer a credible alternative and let's debate it (n/t) at 00:28 2 Oct 2016 Derek Mciness, struggled a bit at Bristol City but has done well with Aberdeen albeit Scottish football isn't the toughest standard. David Flitcroft at Bury? Comes across well and is doing a good job with them this season.
Forum Reply Sleaford Mods at 23:38 30 Sep 2016 Good band, just watch this set from Glasto a couple of years back! That should keep you entertained! stole the show VIDEO
Forum Reply Best Radiohead album? at 22:00 29 Sep 2016 What do you make of in Rainbows? I remember buying it and not being impressed, then I dug it out a year or two later and really started to enjoy some of the tracks.
Forum Reply Pearson done at Derby at 16:58 27 Sep 2016 Thing is, if a group of players aren't backing the manager (could be the case, because they have a decent squad) and Pearson does strike me as a bit volatile. Is there a point in him staying? It seems there's quite a bit of friction around the place and if the players aren't willing to fight for him then its difficult for the situation to improve.
Forum Reply rubbish Joke Thursday at 14:00 15 Sep 2016 I walk into a pub and ask for a pint As I do so, a giraffe collapses behind me, I hesitated for a second The barman said, "What are you doing? You cant just leave that lying there" I said, "Its not a lion, its a giraffe"
Forum Reply Amazed the red card that never was has been forgotten at 00:33 10 Sep 2016 'The Varney sub was a clear signal to keep them pinned back and force a mistake or hesitation and worked fine' No it wasn't, it was a decision to add more defensive stability considering Reading's attacks mainly came down the flanks. You honestly think Mick thought that? He loves a point away from home, he was settling for it. If he wanted to win the game we'd have seen C. Grant, Lawrence or Best- players who have more offensive qualities than defensive. Varney is a worker not at attacking outlet.
Forum Reply Players going down too easily... at 00:27 10 Sep 2016 I wouldn't look to deeply into those comments though Mick will be or at least should be seething in the dressing room, losing the game in such a fashion will annoy him massively. If he hasn't had some sort of minor fit I would question him a little bit. Knudsen has started the season quite brightly and scored against our rivals so you have to be a bit careful how you approach it, but as you say, some constructive criticism wouldn't go amiss.
Forum Reply Players going down too easily... at 23:37 9 Sep 2016 Its part of the game, not saying that's right but it is. It happens all the time, whether it be diving, time wasting whatever. Players are going to do this, whilst some defending players will find this rule pedantic, attacking players are going to thrive of it and do what they can to win. Van den Berg isn't sitting in the changing rooms thinking he's cheated, he's giving everyone high fives.
Forum Reply Players going down too easily... at 23:30 9 Sep 2016 No excuse The referee has just had a five minute conversation to 2 players, saying no more you two, his tolerance is very low at this point, so much so that any slight touch would result in a penalty. Knudsen is watching all this unfold, why he was given Van Den Berg in the first place I have no idea, he's about twice the size of him! What does Knudsen decide to do? hold the player who has just been booked. Brainless in the extreme and you could see it coming from a mile away. Players know they're clamping down on this, its happened for the past 3 weeks. Yes you can say there wasn't sufficient contact but players are making refs minds up for them. 20 seconds away from a satisfactory point and you do that.
Forum Reply What team do we start with at Reading? Could we see Sears dropped? at 16:13 5 Sep 2016 I think you've got to be very careful, there could be a big detrimental effect on Sears if he's dropped, what does it say to a striker who is trying his hardest for the team but is dropped because he's struggling in front of goal? Not sure it would send out a great message, he's still played his part in what has been a decent start to the season. Imagine you're Sears and you get dropped for someone who's yet to even play for us. I think we have to back him, not drop him.
