Re: Next Season's Squad.

Anyone know what Xabi Alonso said about tackling? Started off by saying that Carrick and older Scholes would have had better careers if the English weren't so obsessed with blood-and-thunder tackling, then this: "I don't think tackling is a quality. It is a recurso , something you have to reso...

Re: Bftg- Wigan (h)

1st goal - scored in time added on because of Wigan's time-wasting cheating. (And it should probably have been 9 minutes added instead of 5.) 2nd goal - scored following a drop-ball awarded because a disgusting Wigan cheat faked a head injury in order to stop a Reading attack. And Wigan then complai...

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

Match report was on the club website within about 20 minutes of the end of the game. I figure that Royals and Racers has shamed them into action, and deserves congratuations.

Re: On this day

21 February 1872 - first ever game
Reading 0 Reading Grammar School 0

Fans afterwards may well have said that we needed a goalscorer, with the probable 1-2-10 formation clearly not attacking enough.

Re: New Keeper

Well, I've seen him play once. He was atrocious, far worse than any Reading keeper I've seen in the last 20 years. May have improved since.

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

With our current bunch of useless wasters, we don't want to be anywhere near a non-league side, unless we desire to be lead headline in January. Ideal draw is one that will bring in some money, as that's the only possible positive outcome I can see.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Reading were never known as The Lions, despite the picture of the Maiwand Lion on the front cover of the programme. However, there was a gap between the club announcing there would be a new nickname and then actually adopting one. During that gap a number of possible nicknames were floated, and Lion...
