Re: The Reading FC World Cup Quiz

9/10 Got the Shaka question wrong. I know he held out for an England call up for a while so didn't have loads of caps for T&T for a player of his ability but I guessed wrong. A couple of educated guesses as well, like knowing when Beasant was at the peak of his career and who Ireland played in ...

Re: BFTT Cardiff

I've only been to two games this season - if Sunday's match is representative then I'm not going back either. Absolutely dire game, Reading struggled to put three passes together for the first hour (literally) and constantly gave the ball back. Ilori is scared of life. Van den Berg is worse than me....

Re: Dave Beasent

though, from what I’ve seen this season it’s been pretty hopeless in that area but in their defence the club are crying out for a Darren Caskey or Ian Harte God Darren Caskey. I can't remember which game it was, either Bournemouth at home when they had Defoe, or Notts county. We were losing and got...

Re: BFTG Sheffield Utd

Last night was my first trip to the MadStad since the Fulham semi last season. Observations: - It wasn't that cold, there was no wind so perfectly tolerable - Really easy to get a beer so did two at half time and didn't go back in until gone 60mins - Reading were utter dogshit - Generally felt quit...

Re: BFTG Bees

First half was dire. Half time to goal was decent enough. Goal to end of match was dire. First time I've seen Reading this season and wasn't too impressed. Desperately need a striker or to play Aluko further up the pitch - his nice work on the ball would be much more damaging in the final 25m of the...

Re: Do you have another team?

Reading are my team but I definitely don't care as much as I did a decade ago. I think you just get bored of it all after a while, particularly as you grow older and more cynical about these things. My family team is Leeds - I would say I used to "support" them but these days I don't do an...

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

Well in our stand, some of us had to stand as there was a conflict between a couple who were in the wrong block, and a pair of brothers (I'm going to assume this as they looked similar). Unfortunately, this occurred on the same row as where a wreath of commemorative flowers had been placed. Astonis...

Re: An analysis of promoted teams in the play-off era

No way I'm reading all that but the general thrust of it seems to make sense.

I reckon Reading will get bummed to death next season if they go up. Would have to buy half a dozen new first-teamers.

Re: Where does Jaap Stand ?

Stam's done incredibly well but can't be mentioned among names like Coppell, Pardew and McDermott yet. I'm not sure where to put Pardew - on the one hand I feel like he (along with the stadium move) began the upwards curve that RFC have been on since the 90s. He and Martin Allen really imbued both t...
