Re: Reading City FC

5-1 away win at the weekend and 4-0 home win last night. 250+ attendance. Decent.

However the whole tweet is a little more interesting and shows we are doing good business elsewhere.

Good to know this club is in safe hands isn't it... and where are the local press to report on this?

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Out of interest - are they standing throughout the game? This is going to be a problem at some point, especially if the stewards are stricter in the East Stand or away end when it comes to standing. Club 1871 should be careful they aren't seen to be getting special treatment. The South, like Y26, s...

Nothing at all suss to be honest with you. Have you looked into the new ownership? It's nothing ground breaking, but will hopefully take the club forward and ultimately be good for the Town (City...)

Not for me to say. Heard it from a reliable Hellenic League source though.

Odd behaviour.


I hope he scores 20 but Oxford concede 90.

Re: Rival Watch

They're not a rival (yet), but Reading City did well in their first game at the weekend, winning 5-1 I think it was, away.

They play at home tonight down Scours Lane. Under 16's free entry. It'd be good to see some Reading fans lend them some support instead of the other local clubs like Maidenhead.

Forget Maddison. Their owner confirmed we were interested but baulked at the players wage demands. We're out and haven't been back in since.

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I was in hospitality for Derby and I have to say I was very impressed with the South Stand. I think I saw they'd sold just over 300 tickets before the game. It looked 400 or so in there for the game. Good noise throughout the game and at times worked with Y25/Y26. This can only be a good thing for t...

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy for us to pay it, but I think £700k would be about the upper end of his value considering his remaining contract length as well.


£1m is loose change today.

There's no question it would be an upgrade for us. Unless Mannone does go back to Italy as was rumoured a month ago, then I can't see us making a change in that department.

Re: Gourlay

Apologies if touched on already, but Mr Gourlay recently saw off the marketing chap who was helping with the South Stand home fans thing, and he's since brought in his own man. Worse still, Gourlay's idea of improving the atmosphere is........... A MARCHING BAND! As I understand it this was dismisse...

Re: Ashley Williams

My lad tells me we are being linked with Ashley Williams on a one year loan deal. No idea if this has any validity but he is past his best and given we already have O’Shea I wouldn’t be too keen. It would mean the Elphick deal is off and surely means Moore would be sold. Zip junior has added this m...

Anyone know who @ElmParkRoyals is? He does post-match Periscopes which I find quite amusing and almost insulting as I've never seen him at a game in my life. He isn't a supporter. As his views would convey. I did find it funny that he actually got someone to run his Twitter account while he was on ...

Re: South Stand

Oh and it's brilliant that this is unreserved seating. Also remember that safe standing is likely to become more and more regular across the leagues (I think anyway). Reading have supported this campaign and I can imagine them installing this in the South Stand. Ultimately maybe, however the propos...
