Re: Summer Ins and Outs

Think it is sending strong signals that the younger fringe players don't see a decent route through to the first team under Stam. Lot of strength ahead of them. He brought Liam Kelly through... I get that. If you are good enough you will get the opportunity. But the bar has been raised at the momen...

Re: CONFIMRED - John Swift

Yeah I think the extra games and the exposure from the tournament will do him good and help his confidence

He had a long break mid season and I'm hoping he'll be back to last years early season form come August

Re: Sunderland Crap

Fine. Get its bantz or whatever, But comes back to the point you shouldn't really slate Reading as Boring when you live somewhere as awful as Sunderland, and when it's really not the case. Which was the original starting point to the post.

TBF - there isn't really that much to disagree with here. Reading has it's pleasant parts, such as Pangbourne, Caversham (for the most part) etc.. "I bet you cannot name me one thing interesting about Reading. Well, aside from Reading Festival (which is just the posh version of the much cooler...

First of all I have some sympathy with the criticism of the match day experience, but.... If you class a place with a vibrant young integrated multicultural workforce, highly successful economy, pubs and restaurants coming out of its backside, decent climate, great transport links, interesting hist...

Re: Sunderland Crap

I hope he is reading, and I hope it helps just hammer home to him what an awful place Sunderland is. In fact I'd hope anyone who thinks Sunderland is an acceptable place would find Reading absolutely not to their taste or else we are doing something very wrong

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

I think to be fair, there was a realisation at the turn of the year that the Prem was a genuine possibility for Reading, and he clearly wants to play in that division, and I've no doubt it would have been with Reading if we'd gone up. He seemed as gutted as anyone we didn't make it, despite knowing ...

Re: WHO THINKS THIS IS A LOAD OF BOL...................KS

It's not a great article is it?

The Fulham @rse kissing is as tiresome as the jibes at us, but happy for us to be underestimated again

Noticed on the various sky previews and 'matches to look out for' no mention of us either. But again not unexpected

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

Re: Danny Williams - Huddersfield

It's inevitable he will leave, so no real hard feelings His performances towards the backend of last year were fantastic, and would like to think it was more a case of understanding his role and the system more than just about the contract He was certainly absolutely gutted at the end of the final a...
