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...

It's not immature to get frustrated by fans and supporters just sitting on their hands, especially on a big occasion Yes it is, it's pathetic. WTF does it have to do with you how other people behave?

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...

They are missing *because* they're concession tickets.

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.

This thread has descended into just listing people who have played for us. I mean, Robert Fleck scored in the first ever game at the MadStad. Sean Evers cost a small fortune and was so shit it still makes me shake with anger. Lee Hodges played tonnes of games and bagged a couple in that brilliant wi...

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...

£98 quid is a joke for some seats This wont sell out. Anyone remember the costs for the Swansea game? I still have my ticket for Swansea. i was in block 549 and it cost £76 exactly the same.

Re: Trouble at the station after the game last night?

Say what you like about Reading and Fulham but they have had at least one proper row in the last few years.

Saw half a dozen Fulham fans kicking wing mirrors off cars in Hartland Road last night whilst shouting FUKK OFF READING. Really wanted to knock them all out but unfortunately I'm too weak.

Interesting, I think he's a really good player. Better that Aaron Mooy at Huddersfield IMHO, his counterpart in the team of the season.

Just got smothered out of our last two games by having a man on him most of the time.

Agree with all that. Regardless of frame-by-frame breakdowns it really looked like a penalty in real time because of the arm movement.

Re: BFTG - Fulham

To paraphrase Dr H earlier in another thread: If, after almost 200 minutes of football, you're having to cling to a zoomed-in freeze frame then you probably just haven't played well enough. FWIW I thought Atkinson had a very good game last night and also that it was a penalty (albeit a tough one to ...
