Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Hugh Grant and Richard Osman are Fulham fans says it all really. Posh boys from the Home Counties with no connection to west London. Your typical Fulham fan really just a pleasent walk along the river from there luxury apartment overlooking the Thames. tbf - the typical Reading fan now is someone i...

Re: CONFIMRED - Paul Clement appointed as new Royals boss

Reasonably happy with this. Hopefully he can gee up a squad which, on paper, should be nowhere near the relegation zone and get those few results to pull us away from it in time to enjoy the last couple of games, then look to build from the start of next season. He's got some good contacts in the ga...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

Entertaining or not, it worked last season. People generally like watching successful teams, even if they don't like the style. The attendance figures back that up. For example, I didn't find the style in 11/12 particularly entertaining, but we were winning and playing to our strengths so I enjoyed ...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

I don't think it was, mainly because there was confidence throughout the team and we were picking up results. It was working so there wasn't a great need to change up the style like we have seen this year, and we really dug in defensively when we needed to. Let's not forget that finishing 3rd in the...

Jesus, it was so bad I forgot about JDB's shot from Gunter's cross. I'll give him that, then.

Re: BFTG - Bolton

A very changed and experimental side which resembled a team at the start of a season. From the reports sounded like I did well not to see last nights game. From the people who bravely attended - Did Evans do a better job than Joey and would Joey been more effective against the physical side of Bolt...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

That was better than last week but making six changes for a game like this could have been disastrous. It looked like two teams trying not to lose, as opposed to trying to win, and a draw was a fair result in the end. Radio Berks after the game is always good for a laugh, but people who think Stam i...

Re: Reading v Bolton Official Predictions Thread

HT Reading 1-0 Bolton. Martin
FT Reading 2-0 Bolton. Barrow

It won't be pretty but we will win.

Karacan will probably get the biggest cheer of the night.

Re: BFTG Sheffield Utd

I'm not reading through the whole thread so please forgive me if I miss other points of discussion or make a point which has already been made. The first goal felt inevitable after a really shaky opening few minutes and we got what we deserved, really. We didn't respond like we did against Derby and...

Re: Swansea Predictions

3-1 Swansea.

Hopefully some of our youngsters will get a run out again and gain more crucial experience.

I'm also hoping we sing 'Gylfi Sigurdsson, he's one of our own'

Can anyone tell me the allure of hooliganism, other than repressed homosexuality? Well first you get to all go shopping and buy the very finest, loveliest terracewear with your friends.

Re: Rumour - Dave Edwards

Not a signing that jumps out at you like a £10million striker, but a canny one in this league. He will give us another option and some good experience to help guide the younger players.


Pleased with this.

I liked when the Villa fans sang 'John Terry, he's won more than you' and it was then immediately sung back at them.

1-0, McShane from a set-piece in the first half.

We'll hold on for dear life for the rest of the game, but unlike Saturday, grind out the result.

Re: RUMOUR - Shane Long (lol)

I'd have him back. He was taken from us just after his best season, when he started to look like he would fulfil his potential, and maybe he feels like he has some unfinished business here. The money will be an issue unless he feels like he can take a cut to come back, with the potential of getting ...

Re: Stam Changing Style

You really do need to be adaptable in the Championship. One of the things that frustrated me last season was the lack of quick breaks when we had a chance from a corner or deep opposition free-kick to do so. It's not bad or 'long ball' football to release someone quickly out wide when we have player...
