Re: Season Ticket Benefits

The real question is, did they announce the prize for last seasons Stand and Deliver and did I miss it?

Re: Reading FC Hall of Shame

On Football 365 recently they have gone through the Premier League clubs with the following questions. I thought it would be interesting for us to do Reading. Worst thing that other fans think about them? I guess that we're tinpot? Worst thing about the ground? It's completely on the outside of tow...

I've been off the grid for a bit, did he pick up an injury or have we offloaded him?

Not really sure, I've heard no news of him being sold and he's under contract for another year still.

It's only a pre-season friendly but very promising for a lad who is still a month away from his 17th birthday.

Re: RUMOUR: Gunter to Boro

Didn't McShane basically start every time he was fit last year? He might be your 4th choice, but thats pretty irrelevant if Stam keeps picking him McShane 4th choice :lol: McShane and Moore are the first two central defenders on the team sheet if they're both available. After them it'd be Ilori the...

Re: RUMOUR: Gunter to Boro

also Obita prob wouldn't have lasted the game either. Otherwise think he would have started in place of Joey. we were a bit unlucky to be fair with so many of our players being half fit for the play offs - i.e. Obita, Joey, McCleary, Kelly... [offtopic] I met a relative of Kelly's a few weeks back ...

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

so Japp prefers players who can play in mulitple positions but not specialised in any particular position. Now it makes sense why sometimes players play what we consider out of position. Only one problem with that is I'm guessing that academy players are not taught to play like this so that why he ...

Re: CONFIRMED: Pelle Clement

This one came out of the blue a bit didn't it? Wikipedia has him down as a striker, judging by the club statement, they see him as a midfielder, I hope that's the case because he has a shocking strike rate if he's meant to be a striker.

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

I'm less concerned, the players we've lost, while we had high hopes for them have hardly set the world alight. Fosu and Stacey are probably the ones who got closest to the standards needed at the club but they did quite well at League Two level. The only one I have gotten a touch concerned about is ...

Re: Summer Ins and Outs

Rob Dickie was getting solid reviews by all accounts, hopefully he can force his way into contention.
