Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Has anyone been able to ascertain whether you can use the same iFollow account home & abroad? I'm away for the first 2 games of the season. I want to sign up next week for the overseas version to see those games then use it back in the UK when I can't make away games and I'm out of range of BBC ...

Re: Last 100 players on loan

Just realised I also missed Terry the Taxi joining us on loan latter part of 83/84 - although he never made a 1st Xi app. ENFA doesn't mention his loan stint, but Rothmans 84/85 does on page 80 and 429, so many thanks to the OP for that snippet. Which means Jordan Mutch was our 130th loanee. Also w...

Re: Sunderland Crap

Although we may have different opinions on Sunderland as a town, I would like to give my sincerest condolences to Bradley Lowery's family and I hope Bradley didn't suffer at the end of his life. Thankfully he is now resting in peace and his last moments were with his family which made the situation...

Re: Build the worst Reading footballer

Andy Hughes's crosses need a special mention too! Rarely hit the first defender Normally the second bus stop In fairness to him he was never a winger Actually quite decent when played as an attacking midfielder through the centre We called him Puppy as reminded us of a Boxer puppy.

Re: Build the worst Reading footballer

Onside awareness/timing - Adam Le Fondre. Simon Church, surely. Michael Gilkes's crossing Really? OK, half of his crosses went into the Tilehurst End, but the other half picked out Jimmy Quinn at the far post perfectly. For all the bad crosses, there have probably been very few wingers who put in m...

Bollocks Nobody in the 1970s could only last 10 minutes without being knackered like Drenthe. Can't believe it's taken two pages before he came up He was in the very first post (one of my nominations for bad character). But I could also have nominated him for a host of other characteristics, none o...

Re: Build the worst Reading footballer

Problem is you guys appear to have all been spoilt by first and second tier players. If you want genuine dross, go back to the early 1970's when we were in the lower reaches of tier 4. Malcolm Swain anyone? The worst footballer I have ever seen for any side. Bollocks Nobody in the 1970s could only ...

Luke Chadwicks face his pace was a bit special as well I remember going into the club shop at Ipswich and seeing a photo of a night game from above the ground.

Re: World Cup 2026

I really don't get this idea of fans (or even the media these days) overhyping England. You hear all the time about how fans have wildly unrealistic expectations, but that's only true if "we might not be disappointingly crap this time" is classed as wildly unrealistic these days. The idea...

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

I wish Williams the best of luck in his career should it be away from Reading. I think he wanted to go up with us, hence his emotion at the end of the game. I've always liked him, sure there's a few things of his game which frustrate me, but to compare him to HRK is insulting. DW is a much better p...

Qualifying is just getting to be a total waste of time now for the likes of Germany, France, Italy, Spain, England etc. Just give them byes straight to the final and avoid the utter boredom of pointless games (and in England's case the media and fan overhype and then overreaction to each performanc...

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Have any UK nobbers figured out what sort of setup it requires - what proxy works? Do you need a foreign bank account/address? Guess it may be a case of waiting until the first game of the season to see what works? So - I logged on to the Reading website using a fairly standard proxy and was able t...

2nd team: FC Saturn Ramenskoye, our local team in Russia. I don't get to many games but it's some compensation for missing Reading games occasionally. They are now back up to the 3rd tier after some financial issues saw them thrown out of the Premier League and into the 5th tier (someone even wrote ...
