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: Berks and Bucks Senior Cup 2018/19

Weather for Tuesday night looks to be very cold, but not snowing . Snow is coming early Tuesday i believe, and lots of it !! Edit just seen the "countryfile" forecast and not so much a risk of snow as previously forecast- match should go ahead ok. I freely admit that I may have got that o...

Re: The Non - League thread

13:00 Thatcham Town v Melksham Town - reportedly ALL TICKET (according to both clubs' Twitter) :? Officially on safety grounds, but presumably a reaction to the Vase quarter-final last year, which had some trouble that Thames Valley Police later blamed on "Reading FC fans". Melksham alloc...

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.

U23`s home to Fulham tomorrow night(Friday) at the Madejski KO 7pm in a premier league 2 DIV 2 match- i`m pretty sure this was going to be at Woking but has now swapped. Popa, Harriott and Pelle Clement all likely to be involved I think it's the other way round - originally at Madejski, but now at ...

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...
