Re: If RFC don't make the play-offs....

I will pretend I'm not bothered, while churning with complex emotions inside. I will say the Premier League is just a circus anyway, it's all about money, and I prefer lots of Tuesday games anyway. I will then paradoxically say that ours is a long-term project and we are very much a work in progress...

Re: Sheffield Wednesday (A) Predictions

Got to say I'm not at all confident about this one - reckon it's going to get worse before it even starts to get better. 4-0 Wednesday, with Jordan Rhodes suddenly reminding everyone why Reading fans were champing at the bit to get him, for several seasons.

Dearly hoping to be proved wrong.

Re: Back from listening to the game v preston on the radio

It's funny as last night I was thinking that it doesn't feel like it's a good season or that we are doing really well. By that I mean, in other seasons I was "buzzing" (hate that word) all the time and it was exciting looking forward to the next game. Now I'm just a bit :| about the whole...

Great that this thread has even returned at all, after two seasons when it would have been laughable.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Newcastle United (h) sponsored by damage limitation

I would be amazed if Newcastle win 3 away games on the spin to promotion opposition. Yet stranger things have happened. Yes - like us beating West Ham, Brighton, and Southampton in successive away games in 2012... (OK, they weren't strictly on the spin, and Brighton were just outside the playoffs -...

That was utterly despicable, in my view.

Re: Best wishes Bobby Convey

Strange to think that there are Reading fans who don't remember the 106 team... but of course there must be. No matter how long you've supported Reading (me - since 1969) or how old you are, that team and that season was the most exhilarating we've ever known. Bobby Convey and the rest of the guys c...

McCleary didn't always do it IIRC. Gunter is clearly the style guru.

He was fantastic for Wales. It isn't just a Stam thing - he has mainly underperformed for Reading. Maybe having GMac there gets in his way.

Re: Stams philosophy

when was the last time you saw Gunter win a tackle? Like I always say, if you don't like a player you see his mistakes - if you like a player, you see his successes. We're only objective about players we don't particularly care about either way! Great comment. Unfortunately, all I see when I see Gu...

Can someone help me... I like Huddersfield and hope they go up. Is this a fair view to have? Or is there a reason I should hate them and wish them to fail? Thanks, Bobby +1. Dislike Rafa.

Re: BFTS - Brighton (A)

So, can we please just shut up about Brighton now? They've got a good team, they deserve to be where they are, they are not going to have the perennial oxf*rd up, they have a good shout at automatic promotion, they are better than us (this year, and last, oh and the one before). Anyone would think w...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brighton & Hove Albion (a) sponsored by Tinsmiths everywhere

I know I'm just an idiot and so was my mum (who's dead) for having me, but I far prefer our badge to Brighton's, and to all our previous ones.
Brighton's badge makes me think of seagull shit on someone's fish and chips.
