  1. A priority window would be like the Holy Grail. Just getting a decent period of notice that they are going on sale should be common courtesy Stuff like this opens up the Fans v Customer argument. What was the rush for getting on Sale today? Announce today, let the Preston game happen and then sell on Monday. It's not like the tickets will be posted out today, or people will be able to collect them tomorrow.
  2. This is appalling. I don't usually kick-off about these things, but have made a real effort to go on the road this season and Luton away was one I definitely wanted to do. I have been checking the site all week for news for when on sale as anticipated it would be anytime. Lo and behold, I check in my lunch break to find out that not only had they gone on sale, they have also sold out. Surely at least 24 hours notice before going on sale to allow people to plan is not asking too much?
  3. The QPR game showed Walsh is not ready. He was defensively poor and lazy in tracking. He'll get there in the fullness of time and does some brilliant things going forward but our system is based on 10 outfield players pressing. The moment one shirks their responsibility, it doesn't work and leaves us far too exposed.
  4. I felt he was very poor on Sunday, and feel this may be the right move. That said, some people on here should show the guy respect though. Model-Pro in his time here, and when someone like Guardiola singles a player out for praise then you should take note. Marlon - if this does turn out this way - thanks and good luck.
  5. This was my highlight... One job! Fail.
  6. You want one of these!! In all seriousness, Honda do produce amazing lawnmowers that will last a very long time.
  7. Anyone got a spare - ready to leave from Berkshire and get to Birmingham now if there is one about.
  8. Only found out last night that I am no longer required to go away on Business to Germany. Gutted tbh - as would have snapped up a ticket with my ST when on sale. Hopefully one will come up.
  9. Still available? Happy to share a lift from Hampshire/Berkshire too if interested?
  10. Exactly what Bimringham did on Tuesday. Coincidence that they got 2 injuries within 3 minutes of our goal...? I think not. Totally killed our momentum. Excellent 'Game Management' but irritating and borderline poor gamesmanship.

    Also looking for an adult if one spare
  12. Anyone got a spare adult ticket I can buy - friend coming over from the States for the game.
  13. I think we all know that answer..... sadly.
  14. I don't mind the FA Cup date - I have a choice about buying a ticket for that, but as a ST holder the Tuesday night move has a huge impact and means I can't now go. That is now 4 home games missed this season as a ST holder due to moving fixtures. You allow for 1 or 2, but this is getting silly. It is this type of rubbish that puts me off us ever getting to the Premier 'screw the fans over' league.
  15. Beating Millwall in 97 - I think it was either 4-0 or 4-1. Was the Promotion season under John Ward. We'd played them in the FA Cup a few weeks prior and they smashed up the Ford Garage on Winterstoke Road. As a 14-year-old, it was a genuinely terrifying experience as they ran down the road kicking and punching anything. I remember getting pushed by a CIty fan into a hedge next to Gore's Marsh to just be hidden from sight. Thought long and hard about whether to go to the Boxing Day game - but decided to and Sean Taylor scored an epic header and Colin Crab also scoring. I think we were 2-0 up within 5 minutes. Was a dominant performance and kicked us on for the rest of the season.
  16. Forgive yet another thread, but this is of genuine interest. Yesterday we didn't register a single shot on target until the 83rd minute and that was Brownhill's Free-Kick. No offence to Preston, but they have struggled on their travels this year and that stat alone is simply shocking. Can anyone recall any other game and the length of time it took to do the obvious? Also, the fact that there was complete silence when Preston scored and no-one seemed to care just summed up yesterday's farce for me.
  17. A captain should lead by example. What concerned me most was when there were breaks in play - he was very quiet. He should have been getting into the team and organising them - not looking down at the ground. 2 hours after leaving the ground and traveling 100+ miles home I am still fuming. That was unacceptable today.
  18. Nice and local for me today, so no early drive down to the Gate Interesting viewing here - https://footystats.org/england/reading-fc-vs-bristol-city-fc-h2h-stats Lots of Reading fans at work - all certain we will get all 3 points today. They've not won back-to-back home games in over 18 months and most feel they are going down this year unless something radical changes. As others have stated - I think we need to get into them early and they are clearly a side lacking confidence, though I think they will score. I'm going 2-1 to City - on the basis we score first and then kick on and go 2-0 up with Reading getting a late consolation. If we go 1-0 up and then sit back and try to keep the clean sheet at the expense of attacking, then we will regret it and it will be 1-1. Danger man - Barrow the winger. He will cause our full-backs problem, especially Hunt if they put Barrow on the left. Lots of pace and not afraid of taking his man on.
  19. Exactly that - just walked on through and hoped for the best. I believe that you are allowed 'babes in arms' until they are 2 and so would have otherwise blagged it. And yes - great point - technically there was 26,004 and not 26,003 that night!
  20. Took my Daughter when she was 3 and my son when he was 2 1/2 (and is now 3) - more so as he didn't want to miss out from big sister. Both now have season tickets with me. Perhaps a little too early, but we travel from Berkshire and so it gives my wife some time away from them as a full-time house mum and me plenty of Dad time for me with them. The best thing that has happened was last year v Man City. No-way should or would I ever suggest taking a 3 year old to an evening game and so I didn't get him a ticket. Dashed home from work to pick up my daughter who is now nearly 7, as it was always going to be a special night. I get home and it is chaos - mum has told the boy he's not going to football. He's in tears, and has gone and put his shirt on anyway. I start to load the car, and my daughter gets into her car seat. I put something in the boot of the car and unbeknownst to me, my 3 year old son is that desperate to come, he has also sat himself in his car seat. I look at my wife and say - I have no ticket for him, but there is no way I can't not take him, and that's it. He spent the whole time sat on my lap during the game and he still talks about that game now. That said - he was HORRIFIC for the next 3 days due to getting home and into bed at 1am, so this season - no mid-week night games.
  21. It was well reported that other teams had made enquiries about all of our summer signings. From your post you seen hopeful we will fail. The amount of ‘big name’ players we have brought in and they’ve not performed has been endless in the past. How many people shook their heads when we signed Flint, Pack, Kodja etc. Plenty. Give the new guys an opportunity and support the team and the club in being business smart with new financial policies and that we’re not a basket case of a club like Sunderland, QPR etc.
  22. Does anyone know if we are selling off last year's kit for discounted prices at the shop? All kit has vanished off the website and I told the kids they could have a purple/lime shirt when the prices dropped. Thanks, Sandhurst Red
  23. In Tomlin's case that would have been lard...
  24. I’ve seen us play poorly over the years but this is something else. Also - the fraud officers will be visiting tomorrow to ask how Bailey Wright has got away with staying his profession as a footballer for so long.
