What about, if we have 5 leagues of 20 (I understand the idea is that 8 Conference/Vanarama teams come in to make it a 100 total, and that this idea is now on a roll):

Re: Footy mad boy from Sunderland needs your help

yep, just read on the BBC site the target has been achieved. Bradley was a mascot for the Sunderland Everton game on Monday night. Everton made a donation of £200,000 to help the appeal.

Good luck to the little fella for his treatment.

Footy mad boy from Sunderland needs your help

As some of you know, I do quite a lot of inter-forum stuff, but I always try to be neutral when I'm not on for Reading FC matters. So ...The Sunderland admin lady on the Black Cat Chat forum has asked me if I could reproduce this on more forums ... so please do take a read and go to the link underne...

Re: Royals, my arse! - Reading (A) 21/11/15

daib0, Being honest rather than confrontational, I can't blame him for talking to Fulham. Clarke doesn't strike me as a greedy or Machiavellian man, so there may be concerns about Reading's future, and it may well be that Fulham are more attractive. For a start, they're in London, which is a pull f...

Re: Royals, my arse! - Reading (A) 21/11/15

Troubles and unstability at Reading FC - Just seen London 24, here are a couple of quotes from them from Clarke's lips ... “When I sat down and weighed it up - Reading was by far the best option. All I wanted was the chance to speak to another club and weigh up what is best for me. In my mind I was ...

Re: Royals, my arse! - Reading (A) 21/11/15

Not sure why Clarke is wanting to go to Fulham, Reading have been pretty good to him considering his results for a while were pretty rubbish but have picked up because the owners invested in the squad (sounds like a good idea, has anyone at the Macron considered that!?!)...
