Re: Reading FC Hall of Shame

Chalky White's stunning own goal was vs Scunthorpe in the 78-79 season and only game we lost at home that season. Hick did score some great ogs Huddersfield header was class I may be wrong but the Scunthorpe defeat you're talikung about was due to Steve Death running out to the corner flag, losing ...

£33 what f......ng planet are they on? Wouldn't mind if it was a decent ground. If your over six foot like me it's two hours of sitting with your knees under your chin! Fat Tony can count me out.

Re: Sunderland Crap

What would the average Sunderland fan want from his or hers away day? A trip to an art gallery? Maybe a chance that the local Shakespeare company are putting on a production of The Merchant Of Venice? Perhaps the film club maybe running a season of Federico Fellini films? My guess would be Wetherspo...

Re: Reading on Sky

I think tidus_m2 called it right - it's all about maximising the TV audience, why would Sky care about being fair or giving clubs equal coverage? They've made it clear from week 1 that Villa, Leeds and Sunderland are where their priorities lie. We will get coverage when we play one of those (maybe)...

Re: Sunderland Crap

Don't have a problem with this. Except Sunderland is an awful place even my mate from Sunderland hates it that's why he moved down here. Whenever we go up there we stay and go out in Newcastle. He says there's no places of interest in Reading yet I can't think of to many in Sunderland? Oh and the fe...

Re: EFL Cup Draw - Who do you want?

Hate these games early in the season always the chance of an embarrassing upset we were lucky to beat Mk Dons last season. Mind you Huddersfield lost Shrewsbury didn't do them any harm.

Re: The Shame Your Block Thread

Let me just tell you why this club will always struggle to attract new fans. Or at least have a more dedicated loyal fan base. For me it was summed up by a gentleman I was chatting to on the on the train going to Paddington. "You going to the game mate". ( I was wearing my Reading colours...

Re: Do you have another team?

As you get older the passion fades. I was no where near as upset Monday as I was in 95. And going to games is more routine than exitement. But I really can't see the day when I won't renew my ST. They will alway's be my team whatever league we are in.

We need to be careful not to go all Fulham and temper our expectations. The sooner Stam comes out in his uniquely dutch-mancunian accent and says this the better tbh; "There are no guarantees in football, you know, with the teams coming down, the teams coming up, and the teams already in the d...

Re: Which playoff final was worse?

Bolton will always be the worse. It was our first play off final a bit like Huddersfield on Monday the whole town went we could have sold 50k tickets. Bolton had about half as many as us and we murderd them in the first half. What happened after has gone and will stay in Royals folklore. And trust m...

Re: Can we all agree...?

I blame the fans who's idea of backing the team is to sit down for 120 minutes, and telll people to get out the way while they tuck into there pack lunch and moan about how rubbish Reading are and why can't they play like Arsenal or Spurs.

Did anyone watch it? The main tv camera was in the East Stand. I guess that was done to look like people were there.
