Re: New signings

This Sam Smith deal seems to be dragging on and on. As I understand it, Reading are (quite sensibly) waiting to confirm the signing of Sam Baldock before letting Sam Smith come to us. Yeah I get that, it's just a shame not to have players here for a bit of pre-season. Especially ones without much m...

Re: New signings

We look to be developing a decent and purposeful squad and today we are being linked with Ricky Holmes and Jem Karacan (yes please). Two quality players. West Ham youngster Marcus Browne also linked. Robinson also wants a big, box to box central midfielder too! Reading FC’s highly rated striker Sam ...

Re: New signings

More good work.

United capture experienced right back Tony McMahon after he left Bradford City in May.
McMahon has penned a two year contract. He has previously played for Middlesbrough,
Blackpool, Sheff Utd and Bradford City.

Re: Summer news

Looks like black trim going by that image - nothing special for me but passable!

Let’s hope the quality is good.

Re: On This Day.

On this day - 2nd May 1988 - United hosted its last ever top flight match at the Manor Ground. United (already relegated) under the management of Mark Lawrenson, lost 0-2 to Ron Atkinson’s second placed team. The reds netted twice in the first half through Viv Anderson and Gordon Strachan. Just 8,96...

Re: Thank goodness that's all over

We need to hold on to Rothwell, Kane, Ledson and Hall, to name just 4, but certainly get rid of as much deadwood as possible. This has been the first season for years where I've only been to one game; Blackburn next Sat! Sounds like I've not missed much? Does that mean you haven’t put any money int...

Re: Rochdale

I couldn't watch it - was fairly sure it was gonna go over the bar! Is that because you tend not to watch any Oxford spotkicks or was it because Mousinho was spotting the ball up ? Penalties this season: Marvin Johnson vs Cheltenham (League Cup) SAVED (but followed up the rebound to score). Ryan Le...

Re: Going Down??

I also remember buying a season ticket towards the start of the 2000-2001 - the last of course at the Manor -
and being told by the guy showing me seats in the Beech Road that we had sold only 2,100 season tickets !

Re: Going Down??

I recall listening to BBC Radio Kent to hear Gillingham beat Cardiff City which confirmed our survival. I was reminiscing about that the other week. Like many, I think I kidded myself into thinking that we would halt the decline - whereas in fact the years ahead held two relegations and a lot of mi...

How ‘bout this for a team!

We nearly suffered successive relegations after losing our Championship status in 1999. We survived in 2000.
We then of course suffered a further relegation in 2001 under David Kemp.

Re: Going Down??

We survived relegation narrowly in 2000 by beating Scunthorpe at the Manor in the penultimate game. I recall listening to BBC Radio Kent to hear Gillingham beat Cardiff City which confirmed our survival. We stayed up with FORTY FIVE points. Denis Smith came in after Mickey Lewis was given the careta...

Re: Going Down??

A point versus ‘Dale and we’re guaranteed safety.

I am pleased that we go into the game where we have to be proactive - we must not sit back. Let’s have a go at them.

Re: Going Down??

Donny are at home to Bury on Tuesday. If they win or draw they’re safe - we could then head to The Peoples Republic of South Yorkshire with a bit more confidence provided we aren't massacred at Wigan. U’s have never played at the Keep Moat - went to Belle Vue which must rank as one of the worst grou...

Re: Going Down??

A devastating , self inflicted defeat against very ordinary opponents and you have to wonder from where a U’s goal will come. Lots of positive approach play in the first two thirds of the pitch but a distinct lack of a Cutting edge. For much of the time the final pass or decision is woeful. Thought ...
