Re: Thames Valley Royals

Both Smee and Madejski were saviours of the Club but for very differing reasons and under very different circumstances but both had the same end game ambition; survival of Reading Football Club. It cannot be argued however that if Smee (and especailly his muscle man Brooks) had not done what they h...

Re: Best Ever Managers

First fell in love with Jack Mansell's great 69/70 team, but for me Mark McGhee was the nexus for our eventual rise to the Prem with Coppell. After years of complete dire shite, McGhee's teams played some of the best football I have ever seesn from a Reading team. There were glimpses early in 92/93...
