Re: Reading FC Womens World

For those prepared to approach women's football with an open mind, I would strongly recommend going along to a Reading FC Women's game. It will certainly prove to be a breath of fresh air in this dreadful season for the men's team. The standard of football has improved immeasurably since teams have ...

Simple answer is Yes!

It was a great game yesterday. Neville Roach was there with his daughter and I believe Ady Williams was there too.

Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

Going back to Dellor my mate text me at half time and he said something about Swift feigning injury before he went off? Is that true? Dellor should be sacked, he's a complete joke. When Swift was already going to be subbed we started going forward and Dellor berated the hamstringless Swift for not ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Mr William Whitehurst

WTF is Dellor on about, having a go at Swift for going down even after Mick suggested Swift has done his hamstring again. Not at all surprising. If he wasn't working for Berks FM, Dellor would be a ring leader of the boo boys in the stands. He seems to particularly dislike players who rely more on ...

Re: Rumour - Reise Allassani

I am all for signing players and I am sure the lad is talented etc but is this what it has come to? Do you mean buying from non-league teams? I call your Allassani and raise you one Robin Friday and one Kerry Dixon. And we also allowed ourselves to miss out on Jason Roberts when he was at Hayes. I ...

Re: Thank You Stam

Who does like this style? Certainly not the players People suggest this is a Dutch style or European. It isn’t. This is Stam’s own interpretation and it’s currently awful Played properly and at pace (believe it or not, the team have done this on occasions, even this season) this style can be very e...

Re: BFTG - Stevenage

Call me an old cynic but do others not think that these two players were asked or told to tweet? As some others have said, couldn't the senior players be a bit braver and go to the boss and say that they feel it isn't working? Wherever I have worked both as employee and employer we have always been...

The customer is not always right, the customer is often ignorant and wrong. The person who coined that phrase should be strung up by the ankles as it's continually used to justify unacceptable and unpleasant behaviour.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stevenage (a) sponsored by an FA Cup run needed to save the season

Don't think fans were supportive And the song about passing it back (describing football the Jaap Stam way) was hardly endearing the fans to players or Stam. Not surprised at McShanes reaction really If you're not surprised by McShane's reactions, then it shows just how bad things have got. Complet...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stevenage (a) sponsored by an FA Cup run needed to save the season

Baffling what good McShane thinks would come of that Esp when he has been amongst our poorest performers all season Struggle to believe it’s anything more than the heat of the moment And that's been McShane throughout this season - making p*ss poor decisions in the heat of the moment. Absolutely ap...

If anyone has the right to sulk about our fans, it's scapegoat Chris Gunter. Yet it was he who tried his best to get the team to acknowledge our supporters.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Stevenage (a) sponsored by an FA Cup run needed to save the season

McShane told the fans not to applaud the fans at full time, Van den Berg and Swift led the walking off. Gunter and Edwards only people to applaud the fans. I can barely blame those that walked off, constant booing at the moment making everything worse. Some of our fans need to look in a mirror, how...

Blakey just summed it up - he said Steve Coppell would have been tearing what hair he had out and saying 'it's good football played badly'.

Don't understand all the negativity.

We clearly needed a replay to fund our January transfer activity.

Re: Al Habsi available.......?

I would say that goalkeeping is about the only playing problem Reading haven't got. I agree. Also Mannone is far better suited to the style that we play. Most managers now want goalkeepers who are true footballers i.e. they are very comfortable with the ball at their feet and, great shot-stopper an...

Re: Who could replace Stam?

I did see somewhere that sacking Stam and paying the resulting compo would take us over FFP ? .. in any event I don't see Stam going anywhere of his own accord, even worse, if he keeps us up he could be seen as some sort of saviour and we'll be stuck with him for even longer .. Nobody would know th...

I feel as a fan for so long ive never felt so distanced from the club, I know its a small thing but a fans meeting with Stam/Gourlay/Tevreden could go a long way but none of them seem to be interested in the fans. This is why people won't back the boys Wasn't it not long ago that Tevreden was buyin...
