Re: South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

Would it not have made more sense for the club to have just come out and said 'right, this is the new designated singing stand'? The fact that this has had to come about through the supporters themselves seems to have left a bad taste in the majority of Reading fans mouths who instead of considerin...

Re: South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

But none of this is really true is it?! Not long ago people were moaning about the drummer. Now they're praising the drummer and knocking the singers in the South Stand! :roll: FFS everyone to their own, we/the team need all of the support they can get. And well done RFC, presumably to Gourlay, who...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Not as if he has any options to choose from. Without Bacuna there's a big hole. No sign of Evans today either. Sometimes I wonder if Blackett would make a defensive midfielder. Swift looked as if he's on the way back to match fitness. Joey van den Berg are the words you're looking for. Nope. He'll ...

Re: Rival Watch

Colin will leave Cardiff, he hates the Premier League.

Fulham cocking up the playoffs is the only thing that's keeping me going this season.

Re: South Stand Singers For Sunderland (H)

Great noise again from the South Stand. Keep it going! Nobody heard them. The North Stand drummer completely drowned them out. As it should be too! They also stopped singing when we went 2-1 down which really is cracking support eh??? But none of this is really true is it?! Not long ago people were...

Re: BFTG Sunderland

Clement 6 not a midfield combination to try again, please. Crying out for a defensive midfielder from about 10 mins in. Not as if he has any options to choose from. Without Bacuna there's a big hole.

Re: BFTG Fulham

A new manager has come in, and the only tangible difference I can see between the two styles is that instead of trying to pass the ball out of defence we are giving it a big hoof instead. Totally disagree with this - the defence look far more assured on the ball knowing that they can hit it long if...

Re: BFTG Fulham

I have the experience of watching Reading for twenty years or so, which has given me a decent enough basis for recognising when football is good or bad. One thing I don’t have, is the experience and/or knowledge of someone who has worked in football coaching or management as a full time vocation. Wi...

Re: 6 years ago today

To have this and Southampton within a fortnight of each other was incredible, not to mention the Brighton smash and grab. It was an amazing few weeks. Always remember the dick Nolan giving us the fingers when they got a goal back and thought he was a dick ever since. Southampton tops it for me main...

Re: Season Defining Moments

Cureton's equaliser against Brentford. Otherwise, it would have been the playoffs for us and we all know about our record in those. I’m going to try and flip this on its head in the interest of debate. Had we lost to Brentford and ended up in the play-offs, there is a very good chance we would have...

Re: Season Defining Moments

That draw vs a Yeovil team who went down and had 9 (?) Men. Caused brighton :evil: to get into the playoffs instead Think they had two sent off and another went off through injury so played against 8 men for the last 10 minutes or so. Couldn't believe we didn't score. On paper it’s sounds ridiculou...

Re: Stam Gone

Those of you who think the negativity was solely on Twitter or this spackerboard are living in cuckoo land. There has been very little support for the club, especially at home, when the going got tough. I attended my first (and probably last) Star AGM in September where we had the pleasure of Jaap ...

Re: Stam Gone

Probably the right decision in the circumstances, but I can’t help but feel the fans need to shoulder some of the blame for this season’s failings. The vitriol Stam has received throughout the whol campaign has been absolutely disgusting. ‘Bald nonce’, ‘bald oxf*rd’, ‘dutch bastard’, some people sho...

I’m losing the will to live here. This is basic stuff. (23-19) =4. So if I attend 19 games and not 23 then it is cheaper for me to pay on a game by game basis. See the calcs as above.

Re: Relegation Watch

Add the Fulham home match to all the above.

After the playoff final it was vital that we got a good start this season, and throwing away that win by conceding a sloppy goal was criminal.

Re: FAO Season Ticket Holders - Renew or not?

Well I can tell you where my son and I sit. We are in the family section of the ED stand. It costs £22 for the two of us for a match. My ST was £320 I think and my lads was £99 or £89. I think I paid £409 in total for our ST’s. So if we miss four games during the season we are no better off especia...
