Re: In or Out? New poll.

Twitter saying he is in 'negotiation' for a termination fee.
Unreliable source though.

Re: Starting XI

Mannone Gunter, Moore, Blackett, Richards Aluko, Edwards, Evans, Bacuna, Barrow Bod Interesting that no-one (I think) has McShane in their line-up! Might be something to do with the fact he has one working hamstring....... I hadn't realised it was that bad. You mean he has 5 non-working hamstrings?...

I think it is far more likely that Samuelson has met his match and that the, very wealthy, owners are fighting the charge. We shall see.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Burton Albion (h) sponsored by still waiting for a Saturday home win

And talking of support, one would hope for a fairly decent turn out given £5 per ticket for the Mad Stad’s 500th game but then this is Reading, a real hotbed of football - especially on the last Saturday before Xmas. :roll: I'm taking 4 family members who are over for Christmas with me on Saturday,...

I was gutted when he left. He was an awesome player, very quick, great ball control and a superb end product.

Re: BFTG Wednesday.

I am reliably informed that after failing to pass forward to an unmarked Bacuna and passing backwards instead Paul McShane reacted to the crowds moans by turning towards the Lower West and shouting eff off. Not a great reaction by the skipper of a badly underperforming team. Did anyone else witness...

Re: RUMOUR - Omar Richards

Well, if an untested 19 year old is worth £2m then Moore should fund a new front line and a brand new stadium with his transfer fee.

Ergo, I don't believe it.

Re: 6,000 League goals - FAO Strap

Didn't Darius Henderson hit a goal landmark a few years ago? It might have been Madejski Stadium related though, something like the 1,000th goal scored at the stadium. Maybe we can have a countdown to some records? I think we did have a countdown (ish) for the 5000th goal. Might be mistaken but I h...

Re: Injury watch 2017-18 season

Assuming this story is true, we already have a reasonable cover in Jaakola. There is no need to recall Bond yet. Let Legg cover the bench until Jaakola is injured and then call Bond back, that way he continues to get good first team experience until we need him to go straight back into our first tea...

Football is funny isn't it. We were in terrible form going into yesterday's game, now we've got 2 wins in 4. It's kind of annoying we've found ourselves away from home next against one of the form sides in the league - could've done with another home game to back this result up. Indeed. Derby prett...

To have a decent season (around playoffs with 77 pts) you need to get points as follows - Top 6 - draw at home lose away - 5 from this group assumign a top 6 finish) Second 6 - draw at home draw away - 12 pts from this group Third 6 - win at home draw away - 24 pts from this group Bottom 6 - win at...
