This Saturday I shall be going to watch Reading v Watford.
Watford have sold all their allocation of tickets for this away fixture 3200, this mainly due to their old manager being in charge of Reading and the animosity that Watford fans feel towards him now.

Reading scoring imaginary goals can't have helped the situation.

It's been quite an entertaining season thus far, although that's predominantly down to City for both right and wrong reasons.

The derby was completely mental. Woeful defending, the continuous scorning of Tevez, and plenty of goals. Never in my worst nightmare did I envisage Michael Owen scoring a last minute winner at Old Trafford. Turns out is was a beautiful reality.

Can't wait to start getting to a few away games.

Yeah, gotta say it's been fairly interesting, and have seen a lot of games + the MOTD's. My sympathies go to Burnley, as every other neutral I guess, lot of spirit and a beast of a Dane in the goal.

Liverpool have disappointed slightly, but seems to be on their way back thanks to Torres. Chelsea very impressive so far, gonna take a lot to stop them. Agree with Chris in terms of highlights, Adebayor-celebration and Bellamy-slap were quite spectacular. CL will be tough for them, probably Carling Cup or something if they were to achieve success.

Oh, and what a crisis Portsmouth are in. Just hopeless.

Watford sold Tommy Smith their best player last season to Portsmouth for £1.8 million and they also sold them their CB Miike Williamson that had only been at the club 6 months for £2 million possibly rising to £3 million, Watford paid £150K for him!!!
Mcanuff sold to Reading for £500K and Priskin to Ipswich for £1.7 million.

In return Watford bought a forward for £250K who has scored 5 so far this season....bargain
Watford got 4 loan players 2 from Man Utd and 1 from Arsenal plus the Mighty Heider Helguson has returned to where he should have never left.
In his 1st game last week he came on as sub for the 2nd half with Watford loosing 2-0 and in 25 minutes set 1 up scored 2 and had to come off injured in a 3-3 game .....A Watford legend!!!!

QPR fans didn´t know how to get rid of him.




However, Watford are doing well and a place in the play-offs is not far out of reach for a few teams, them included.



Reading are awful under Rodgers and I don´t know if the club are going to be patient enough with him.



What a great league the Championship is. It´s among the top five best supported leagues in Europe, ahead of the Scuddeto.

They've just added the 7th straight defeat, the worst mark for starting a season in the EPL years.
Still, the crowd is supporting them impressively
Portsmouth-Everton 0-1

Yeah, watched it, they were actually very unlucky not to take at least a point.

We turned one of the harder away games of the season into a relatively easy three points. The effervescent, evergreen Giggs is working miracles for us at the moment. Nani should start paying attention.

The win is more satisfying since discovering Stoke's idiosyncratic resentment for us. Small-timers.

Surely that's the case at all other PL grounds when Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool & Arsenal come calling? It's not just a characteristic of Stoke's fans alone.

Agree about Giggs (and Nani) - a legend.

Having read forums to gauge opinion on upcoming games, I can't say I've read too many threads similar to 'Reasons why you hate the s**t' (that's us!). Greater Manchester and Lancashire clubs don't harbour that much resentment for us. As if we don't have enough rivals.

I'm accustomed to the standard "Big Four" hatred. I don't go to games, I don't know the history, I've never been to Manchester. Yeah, yeah...

Really, that was the name of the thread? Was that an offical fan website?

I might be wrong on that specific thread, but other threads definitely label us as 'the s**t'. It’s unofficial.

By the way, me feeling the need to mention them doesn't merely stem from an array of sardonic jibes on an internet forum. Stoke fans were clearly heard chanting about Munich during the game. Some United fans have hastily formed such accusations in the past based on questionable evidence. No questions about it on this occasion.

Absolutely. I wasn't questioning you or anything - just wondering about those threads. Any 'fans' that bring up Munich, Heysel, Hillsborough, Bradford, etc have no place in football.

Btw, do you think you can overcome Chelsea this year? I think you will need your main players (Rooney, Vidic) to stay injury-free to sustain your challenege. Having said that, Chelsea haven't got the quality in depth that they had over the past few years either. I'm sure Fergie would love to make it 4-in-a-row...
