Re: Brentford (A) - 29 Sept

The £16 cost and one and a quarter hour train journey is a bit painful for somewhere that's 30 odd miles down the road. If there's 3-4 of you i'd recommend getting a taxi there and back. Might only be £35 or so each way.

Re: Reading FC Direct update - membership

Yep, it seems to have wiped all of the points from 2011 (when the points system came into the club). Just checked the new RFCSupport twitter page and they have confirmed there is a technical error since switching the website to the new platform and all points will be restored shortly. The points sy...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I think people are right that if/when Reading start winning again and play half entertaining football that most of the problems we mentioned go away and fans will come back to the Mad Stad. It will have a cumulative effective: more fans - better atmosphere - team has more support - better results - ...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

From reading posts on here it almost sounds like the club would be better off if it moved back into a 12,000 seater stadium in the town centre and just accepted life as a league 1/2 outfit.

Re: My first rumour report. Things not well at Reading.

Is Madejski really too poor/uninterested to buy the club back and get it on some kind of decent footing? He can't take the money with him and there's no spouse to think about.

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Dont think there a culture loss just at Reading, pretty sure its across the whole country. People just cant be arsed to go to the game when there is already so much footy on TV. We also have a generation of hatred towards football in those oxf*rd rugby fans who complain about the money and prima do...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I too have been struggling with apathy, I think it's just a normal response when so many recent seasons have been poor. The last time I felt truly connected to the team was in 2011/12, when we responded perfectly to a heartbreaking playoff defeat. Since then, it's been mostly downhill, with the exc...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

I only became a regular attendee at the Mad Stad in my early 20s. Started going to odd match when we were in the PL under Coppell; was a bit more regular in the first couple of seasons in the Championship and became a season ticket holder for McDermott's first full season. So, to be fair my experien...

Re: Clement

I'm saying Ian Royal at the moment - but we really need to get some results soon otherwise i'll be calling for Ian Royal.

You never know - if we string a few good results together it could install some confidence and we'd be right back in it. In which case I would be Ian Royal and proud.

Re: BFTG - Weds H

Even if we had a triumvirate of Alex Ferguson, Arsene Wenger and 2005 Steve Coppell as joint managers, this squad would still struggle to be more than mid-table. We have exactly one defender who is above average for the league. A few promising midfielders but none of them effective as a DM. We fini...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by a difficulty to enthuse

I hope i'm proven wrong but I honestly don't think McNulty is cut out to play at this level. Nothing i've seen from him suggests he has the ability to get goals in a league with reasonable defenders and goal keepers. Baldock on the other hand is a proven Championship striker and he should be given a...

Some people think Reading v Watford in the league cup is a matter of life and death. I assure you, it's much more serious than that.
