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...

Yes (6 seasons)

Football didn’t begin in 1992 :)

They only had two seasons in the top flight.

Any time you're below Bullivant in any sort of ranking, you're in big trouble.

Re: Injury & Suspension Watch : 2018/2019

Strangely I can't find anything on card amnesties in the FL, presume there are a couple (usually end of November and March). It's no longer a specific date. The five yellows amnesty is after 19 league fixtures and the ten yellows amnesty after 37 league fixtures. 5 - Meite (will miss WBA (a)) If he...

Re: The Non - League thread

Here's a sorry tale. Went to Sidmouth Town v Liverton United on Wednesday night - South West Peninsula League Division 1 East (Step 7 in the new terminology). Quality was utterly atrocious, plus the temperature was falling steadily, so I decided to leave at half-time with the home side 5-2 up. Final...

Re: Club developed players

It's only a problem if our admin is sufficiently poor to forget about the rule. Like, for example, not knowing who is eligible to play in the FA Youth Cup. Having said that I had forgotten that Cooper went for a fee, so that could well make us exempt. And for the record, this is different from the &...

Club developed players

There's a rule change for this season that says that each Football League matchday squad of 18 must include a "club developed player", or else you can only name 6 subs. The definition is of someone who spent 12 months at the club before their Under-19 season ended. There is a vaguely worde...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Aston Villa (a) sponsored by hoping it's 1959/1960 all over again

It took 5 totally pointless failures to record any form of pointage at Villa Park a couple of season ago, before that win the only thing the club had earned from a visit was a relegation in 1971. Last season normal service was resumed so it’s now 6 defeats and 1 win in the 7 league trips up there. ...

I think everyone can agree that in any real sense of the term Wycombe are a non-league club. Anyway, they haven't entered. And talking of Mickey Mouse outfits something has occurred to me since the original post. This might just be another in the catalogue of administrative failures at Reading over ...

Berks and Bucks Senior Cup 2018/19

Reading have entered the Berks and Bucks Senior Cup this season, which also means avoiding a fine from the county FA. Probably will be a reserve / youth team taking part. We have a bye to round 2, so the first game probably won't be until November or so. Reading were the first winners in 1879, and a...

From the official site (as at 8 pm Thursday): 9 hours ago - in the article ludicrously titled "We're fit and strong and ready to go" Leandro Bacuna and John O’Shea are good, fit for selection. 6 hours ago - in the article "Ahead of the game" Clement confirmed that John O'Shea, An...

Go on, take a guess.

Or consider this - the club announce just about every season that we have more season ticket sales than the year before (excluding the two times we were relegated from the top flight). They've not said anything this summer.

Re: Palace(H) friendly Saturday July 28th

I thought there were quite a few positives. Mannone saved two on-target shots. OK, so I would have saved them as well, but he could easily have messed them up. Aluko will surely never be allowed to take a corner again. Gunter was hopeless for only 34 of the 90 minutes, which I think is a personal be...
