Re: On this day

It's Valentine's Day, so who can forget our romantic night out in Swindon in 2002? If memory serves, the game was moved at short notice for coverage on ITV Digital who were rewarded with a 0-0 draw and, happily, went bust pretty quickly after. They placed the temporary TV studio on scaffolding abov...

Had no idea SJM was involved. Disappointing that the video doesn't show the reveal after which derision poured down from the Southbank in a way only the Southbank could do.

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Lewis Ward made his debut for Forest Green Rovers last night after FGR first choice keeper James Montgomery was taken to hospital after having several teeth knocked out :shock: Sounds like Ward had a good game and Montgomery may be out for a little while, so possibly further games to come. https://w...

Re: On this day

Loads of games on 17th of January over the years. The highlight has to be a 2-0 win at the Co*nty Ground, though. Swindle, remarkably, managing to be worse that one of the worst Reading teams in a generation.

Re: 20 Years Ago Today (16/1/99).........

Left at 4-0. Clearly remember vowing never to return to the Madejski. I hated the whole thing. Six months earlier my match day routine involved Spread Eagle, stroll round to the Southbank, find the usual spot under the clock and enjoy 90 mins of ineptitude. Here we still had the ineptitude, but ther...

Re: Generic clubs in financial crisis Thread

Disagree completely. Went there for the pre-season friendly in 2008 and found the supporters and ground to be excellent. I'd be surprised is Forest Green were promoted too, they're not that good. Depends where you are, I guess. The old away end, behind the goal, is terrific. But last season they mo...

Re: QPR (A)

Silver seating - can't see the nearest goal at all
Gold seating - can see the top of the crossbar on the nearest goal.

I generally love old skool grounds, but Loftus Road achieves the remarkable feat of being both old skool, bland, tepid and generally shit.

Re: Millwall (A)

No trains running to/from London Bridge. Are you up for walking from Canada Wharf? Might need a minder or two. Canada Water to The Den is about a mile. Takes about 20 mins to walk. The whole area has had money hurled at it, so minders unnecessary (Millwall has always been one of the least threateni...

That’s not how I remember it. My memory was he had been caught by the old bill was being escorted around the pitch right in front of the Reading fans who ran down the front. One ding fan climbed the fence straddled over and booted The Plymouth fan in the face, and jumped back in to the group. It wa...

Re: On this day

Lost 3-1 to Swindle at the County Ground on this day in 1996.

I must have been there, but have absolutely no recollection of the game. Probably for the best.

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

I remember going to Plymouth about 20 years ago and we took nearly 3,000, and half way into the second half this solo Plymouth fan appeared on the pitch near the half way line and launched a kamikaze run and attack on our end behind the goal.It was hilarious as he launched himself into a gap in our...

Two pretty memorable games from 7 Nov. 1999 - lost 2-1 at home to Oxford. I think this game kicked off at 11am on Sunday morning? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9l2Gt3AoKtc 1998 - drew 3-3 with Bournemouth. Cracking game and, as a footnote, I think it was the game that led to the introduction of th...
