Brexit, Trump, Chelsea, Milwall, Real Madrid, Reading


Really wanted Bradford in The Championship, urgh

Before I moved to London I didn’t have any allegiance to an English team. Then lived for 16 years in Highbury, literally around the corner from the old stadium. And I still live in the borough of Islington.

Gotta support your local team, obviously.

that fucking gopro type camera thing they’re celebrating with is the fucking pits. football, you have shamed yourself once again.

Really enjoyed the bemused face of the pitch invading Millwall fan after Morison told him to fuck off.

The Bradford lad who smashed it into the side netting at the end rather than pass it for an easy tap-in should be forced to retire.



Poor match and the side with the good strikers won, probably fair enough but still hurts.
just don’t have quite enough quality, only have to watch us for 5 minutes to realise that Marshall and Cullen are by far our best non-defenders. Both probably on their way out :frowning:
Can’t be too gutted, we’ve just followed 12 seasons of successive decline with 5 straight decent ones and are in the best shape we’ve been this century off the field. fairytale promotion with McCall in charge just feels doomed not to be

I suspect Reading would be very surprised to find themselves on that list. Or any list really.

Too dull a team and town to properly fit in that bracket, I suppose

Any playoff team other than the people’s champs Fulham would have to go on that list

nah. Wednesday would be good to have up for the ground/fans etc. Huddersfield play exciting football, Reading are the least noteworthy premier league team ever, no one wants them back

Tbf, Cardiff got promoted once.

A dark, dark time.

Jezza Corbyn’s just walkes onstage at a Libertibes gig at Prenton Park and his opening gambit was genuinely ‘I bloody love footi, me’.

World’s gone mad.

the only thing I remember about Reading is that whenever McDermott had his back to camera I was confused as to why someone who worked at Waitrose was on the sidelines
