  1. Get a train into Reading or Wokingham (1 stop down the line). Wokingham has a sports pub by the station (Station Tap), few screens and pool tables. Bracknell's pub's offer little to desire but not been out there in some time.
  2. Not exactly exciting, but really think who ever is on social media this year is smashing it. love all the retro stuff, and some really good videos too I’ve seen on Facebook. Small things, but for years we have had some embarrassing kit releases and things, this does give a nice feel good factor.
  3. On that note, anyone understand this fair play table? Are we a bully team? https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/championship/fairnesstabelle/wettbewerb/GB2
  4. I'm not getting too excited yet until we start playing the bully teams. We've had all the "nice teams" so far. We've played none of the top 6 yellow card teams yet...
  5. That was offside when the first shot came in tbh, close but think he is If you look at the angle
  6. West brom - Unbeaten - 13pts (+3 GD) Weds - Lost 3/7 - 12pts (+4 GD) Unbeaten in 7 would assume top 2. Draws do really damage a good season.
  7. Well on the flip side I was raging about Jones being hired and Megson sacked. But got us up on incredible form, despite the following season have to say he did the business that was needed at the time.
  8. Same as us always having a player as well. Too early to read into it until the presser is over
  9. Genuine answer, he would need 3 years to make a difference. 1 - Sort out the academy to his standards 2 - Work out if anyone is worth keeping in the main team 3 - Spend 2 summers replacing and gelling those who aren't 4 - Entire backroom staff overhaul Sadly that is the task facing any manager and only the likes of Fergie will ever get that patience. Problem here is 3 years rebuilding in the Champ is so dangerous with relegation. In the Prem any top half team can do this without fear of going anywhere near relegation due to their squad sizes and youth teams bought from everyone, they just take a hit on Europe games.
  10. We are wanting to change chairman as much as managers now! When have stability, when dc is allowed to spend he does. When we don’t need to sell, he doesn't. End of last season we all thought we were set up perfect for the next 3 years. Just needed time and wait for the team to slowly change and improve. Bruce ditching us has completely screwed it all up. There is no instant fix to that. Sadly modern football it takes years to Recover and build, unless you are the top 6. All we we need is a good manager who has freedom for a couple of years to get it right. But any manager we hire will be hounded out if we are in the bottom half. Wolves are the best example, they had to suck up several years right down the bottom of the league until they could go guns blazing. we were ready to do that this year with Bruce, sadly it’s back to square one as we have his signings but not a manager who knows how to use them.
  11. Being local to West Ham, i'd possibly pop to a game or 2 there and hope they do well. I can then continue my hate for the Blades. But like most, I would then pretty much give the sport a miss, try and do something productive with my weekends without being glued to the Wednesday game.
  12. The decent thing any club could do (IE one of the Manchesters) is host a friendly game against Bury during the internationals. Good run out for the big team kids, probably a good crowd, share of money to Bury for ticket sales. Doesn't harm anyone, doesn't encourage bad owners or overspending etc, maybe just gives the local fans some cash and a chance of setting up the new club. But nope, shirt sales in Dubai & China probably more important than local British towns.
  13. There are local rivals, and competitive rivals. Local big derbies never change. - our league one days charlton were our rivals for competition - then Birmingham when we first came back up - now it’s forest, derby, Leeds, all the top half group. Leeds were competitive rivals with Man U for a couple of seasons 2 decades ago and dine out on it for life. That’s like us saying arsenal are our rivals after the double cup final year. Leeds have no local rivals, similar to reading or Brighton.
  14. One of our best sponsors was to have the children's hospital on the shirt. Think what the prem clubs could do for one with it across their shirt. Or even 1 weekend a season all clubs have a charity on their shirt, 1-off kits. So easy for them all to do, would be huge giving back.
