Re: Building for next season

Big changes are not needed at Reading FC this summer, argues Swift

..... Balls. This lot are lightweight. Too many Flossie's.

Re: Leaving Games Early...?

Recently I've stayed to the end of almost every game, and regretted it.

In most instances, I've regretted turning up in the first place.

But all that will change on Friday.

Re: Season Tickets 18/19

Woking did a £99 season ticket offer in summer.

Wish I'd said yes to that.

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

Those who were booing when Blackett had the ball are an absolute disgrace. Granted he's been pretty poor for us on the whole but I don't think you can really single him out this season, the whole team has been shit. I'll defend the booing, and I'll stand up and stay I jeered him. More damage done b...

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

Illori 6, my god you must be blind. He was utterly putrid. And as for feeling sorry for Blacket, words fail me. He put in a performance today that would have embarrassed Ray Charles. ... In the post match Stam said it was tactical - maybe it was, maybe Stam had planned to sub Illori / Elphick and c...

Re: BFT Appalling mess at home

JS has one job, and only one job. To get the best out of his group of players.

Would anyone be brave enough to suggest he's doing that, collectively or individually?

Re: BFTG Wednesday.

I do wonder if there is certain age group of young supporters around 16-18 (i.e. the seat bangers) who feel more entitled to success than older Reading fans. They would have been children around the 05/06-06/07 era and grew up watching the best Reading team of all time - and haven't really seen us ...

Re: Back From The Match - Preston

Just got in. Do I not like orange. First time I've seen us this year. My thoughts are 1) Barrow is quality. 2) Vito can't pass but can shot stop (AAH all over again) 3) Did Clement even play? 4) Would the real Mendes please stand up 5) Tyler Blackett isn't a left back. 6) Our defence is still made ...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

That was a great spectacle, and 15th looks a very unfair position for Brentford. Still, their manager has a massive case of sour grapes in his after match comments. The first 20 we were sublime, and once we scored they were excellent. Game could have gone either way. Agree with comments about Evans ...

I think Brighton will win at Brentford then hopefully Newcastle will be held by Derby or Derby win up there. Say Derby nab a draw. Wigan wont be easy for Wednesday either, a draw for them would b...
