Ahhh back to being 'normal' and viewing championship fixtures not premiership ones (I'm a Reading fan)

In other sports (like american football) you often have some classic opening games, i'm not saying it should be Man Utd vs Man City or Chelsea vs Arsenal ALL in the opening weekend but on paper the games seem pretty average. Swansea vs Man Utd ? 'great' ! Chelsea vs Hull ?!

Think they should have the first saturday lunchtime game as ALWAYS 1st in the league vs 2nd from the previous season. Works well in american football with a special opening day kickoff game featuring two big teams from the season before.

Never thought I'd see a team get an ovation after losing 10-0 but Tahiti deserved it.

I've really liked them, they're massive outsiders and they know it but they're going to go out and enjoy themselves and go down fighting. If that had been someone like England they'd have sat back and tried to hit Spain on the break in a real borefest but they just went out there and gave it ago and pretty unfortunate they couldn't get on the end of something. The best thing is they played would be attacking football against the world champions and managed to not break their biggest defeat record!

The situation might have been resolved now if the Football League and FA had a backbone, same goes for Portsmouth and other clubs that have suffered through bad managment.

Rumour has it Otium (aka SISU) might not pass to Fit and Proper tests by the Football League and ACL who own the stadium can also have some veto or objection power to the takeover, they have just announced today that the deal is not "properly" done and ouly found out about its progress through media statements released by the administrators that are employed by SISU :lol:

Don't be surprised if we drop down to League 2 next season....or go out of business.

It will be:

No more Cov
SISU get away with eveything and over time no more Cov (MK Dons stylee)
Out of business no more Cov

I can't see any way out, I really can't. What is worrying is that the 'move to a new ground' thing will probably go ahead because our fans are idiots, complete idiots, head in the sand, ostrich looking IDIOTS!!! they still buy season tickets and STILL say 'ooooooooh it'll be alright'
