Re: Player of the season

Moore - Yann - Williams for me, with shouts to AAH, Swift and McCleary. Kelly young player How does Swift get a shout out for POTS but Kelly beats him for YPOTS? Theyre the same age? Players can only win one award. Kelly is ineligible for POTS as he has won YPOTS. In the same was Ali had to decline...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

REP needs the football club. The match attendance brings footfall. Footfall brings customers. Customers spend money and generate profit. Except the football is once a fortnight and match days are the times when no one else would go there. So on 340 days per year there is no football to drive footfa...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by 1 point needed

I know there's no point getting annoyed, but I still will :) . More annoyed on behalf of the owners than taking personal offence to it.

Last game of the regular season, warmer weather, plenty of cheap ticket deals, chance to nail a spot in the play offs. Really it should be a sell out

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

yep, been plenty of investment this year. I very much expect that the likes of Moore and Swift particularly are on a pretty nice weekly as well, especially considering the demand someone like Swift was in. Garath's new contract wouldn't have been cheap either, whilst Al Habsi and Kelly both probably...

Re: Petition

the one thing I don't really get is you are allowed to drink in the concourse. It inevitably means anyone buying one will down it as quick as possible so they don't miss the game. Not only is that not especially pleasant to have to do, it also encourages people to drink in as short a space of time a...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

They are clearly looking for investment into the club to help support it long term. Could they load debt onto the club if the Chinese pair got the go-ahead? Presumably not. Basically Tiger and co have come in, stabilised, given a bit of investment and walking away with a bit of crappy if potentially...

Re: Come back Charles Watts

It doesn't really matter who he supports. Watts was openly an Arsenal fan yet put the effort into understanding what a Reading fan would want to know about the club

The days of the genuinely interesting extensive interviews with Tevreden or thoughtful opinion pieces are long gone

Re: Come back Charles Watts

Yeah GR is very poor nowadays. To be honest Low doesn't come across as someone who cares or knows a lot about the game, whereas Watts is obviously a sports obsessive. That goal scorer article was reasonably interesting but that's a real exception at the moment I'd be vaguely interested to know what ...

There really needs to be. Though knowing Reading it will prob be a prosecco bar serving olives and charcuterie

Re: Royal Elm Park

Regarding the free travel, the idea in principle is good enough, but driving into the town centre on a Saturday to find a car park is a complete pain in the backside at the best of times, esp if a load of footy fans start to use the car parks as well. I'm guessing there is nothing in the plans to bu...

Re: Rival Watch

would much rather Fulham stay down if we do. The Champ is looking incredibly northern next year, esp if Hull go down. It would be nice to have some closer away games and nearish neighbours.

Re: Wigan (H) - Predictions

I wonder if there is a group of fans for any other team who are in the PO positions that are constantly so pessimistic about the team's chances :) I think we'll win this fairly comfortably. Wigan have to come out at us, but I reckon we'll go one up - and then we'll pick them off as they take too man...

Re: Ilori. Why did we buy him?

Because Stam and or Tevreden wanted to sign him basically

CB situation is interesting going into the last couple of games. Wonder if he'll bring McShane back in
