Re: Alternative to STAR?

Not knocking STAR, they have done a great job at times, but understandably not everyone agrees with their position all the time and I wondered if it might be useful for fans to have an alternative voice. Was wondering how many people would be interested in an alternative to STAR? R eading S upporte...

Re: Building for next season

Get rid of the entire lot of them the spineless bunch of oxf*rd. I'd rather play a youth team than this lot of grossly overpaid useless mercenaries . I am amazed by the people in here suggesting (like Swift) that we need a minimal amount of change. No evidence I have seen indicates that this lot ca...

Re: BFTG Fulham

Travelled back from Stafford to home last night. My 10 year old TT only has FM on the radio so no listening to R5Live. I did BBC WM for most of the trip, listening to the commentary on Birmingham and Brizzle (with interruptions for updates on Villa and Cardiff). Aim was to get updates on our game to...

Re: Dave Beasent

This has been really winding me up since last night, In Stams post game interview when asked about the penalty was he surprised Leo took it, he said no Bes (assuming this is beasent) works hard on these selections during the week. Is this normally, a goalkeeping coach making these decisions? Beasen...

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

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,...

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.
