Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

This whole thread must be a wind up. How is Moore replaceable? He’s pacey, good on the ball, a warrior at the back and gave his all every game. Sure his form dipped this season but every player's did. You try playing in defence alongside the hopeless Gunter, Blackett and (at the time) Ilori and see...

Different collars might be quite a smart marketing trick. Pick the type you prefer or buy a couple because you like different shirts and collars.

Re: RUMOUR - Andy Yiadom

Good signing but reportedly another 4 year deal... will we ever learn? The guy is 26, was incredibly close to being a Premier League player last season (Yeah it was Swansea but still....), has shown to be very much of the required standard for this division and bar injuries which he doesn't have a ...

Re: Breaking News on the BBC - Aluko Leaving!!!!!

Very similar players tbf, quick, likes to run down blind alleys and no end product. What odds her turning up at Reading Ladies next season? Only if she fancies sitting on the bench. She wouldn't displace the current strikers that Reading Women have! http://www.fawsl.com/latestVideos/291265052/page/...

Re: Gourlay

Sorry guys but I think you’re being ridiculous. He comes across as fairly measured and makes a few interesting points. How did you want him to come across? Like Winston Churchill? Or maybe shouting whilst doing star jumps? He wasn’t doing the half time team talk. He’s the CEO not the fitness instru...

Re: Back from the ****

I go to games now and am BORED, expecting few half-chances, the inevitable cock-up, but the saddest part is that feeling that too many of the eleven on the pitch, really look like they don't give a toss. I agree with your comments. But I still believe players give a toss--it's not just about Readin...

Re: Today

Made it down with nil expectation, managed a good lunch and got back home by 9. Still don't know how we won 4-0. Your defence were non-existent. In fact, at the end, one of your Central Defenders (think it was Gunter) couldn't wait to get off and basically just put his head down and went. The Sears...

Re: Back from the ****

I'm sure this will annoy some folks...but I couldn't care less. I boo'd the players at the final whistle. I have been to around 1,200 RFC games (trust me....that is a lot) and I can take defeat, but what I will not tolerate is a lack of effort. I too walked past some of the players elaborate cars p...

Re: Roy Bentley

He was the Reading manager when I was my first games in 1967. RIP. Hadn't realised that Roy Bentley had died until I saw his obituary in The i today. I saw my first game in 1967 too. I didn't know who are manager was and, as a youngster, probably wasn't too bothered. However, as I grew older, I bec...

Re: Relegation Watch

The main downside is that we'd let that foaming bunch of faux hipsters @ Craven Cottage in. I'd let Colin have his day just to see that lot spontaneously combust and bottle the playoffs. It's a tough call that one. Don't want to see Colin and the Welsh in the top tier either. Are the Welsh still in...

Re: Relegation Watch

So it could be that Reading get lucky by the complete ineptitude of several other sides in a season that produces one of the lowest sets of points needed to achieve relegation. Leaves you thinking that while Reading have been so unremittingly ****** dreadful all season, look what some supporters mu...

Re: Relegation Watch

I was chatting to Keith Wyness, of all people, last night and he seemed confident that we wouldn't go down. I just don't think I could cope with getting relegated by a Warnock-managed Cardiff. I guess with the playoff situation, its likely to be on telly as well. http://i68.tinypic.com/2rlzoch.jpg ...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

How on earth are we comfortably safe? There is absolutely no chance that Bolton AND Birmingham will both get 4 points from their last 3 games AND Barnsley will get 5 points from their last 4. The players could go to the beach for the next 3 winnable games and we would be fine. Birmingham: Wolves (a...
