Re: The Forgotten

Kevin Lisbie - IIRC, joined on loan in the Pardew era then got injured and went back to Charlton.

I'm struggling to remember all Tommy Burns magnificent 7 - what a deadline day that was.

Re: Stay off the pitch!

I have never really understood it to be honest but do think there is a time and a place for it. First and foremost when you've actually won something - I didn't go on the pitch after the Fulham game for example. +1 Me neither, I did however go onto the pitch after we won the championship v Derby an...

Re: Drummer quits

The problem with being a drummer is that you probably damage your hearing and go deaf, This does not help when it comes to hearing chants/songs that others are singing and as a result you bang bang bang at the wrong time. The sensible drummer would have earplugs to protect their ears but that makes ...

Re: Huddersfield fan on train from Maidenhead

Had a soft spot for Reading since we beat you 2-0 (I think) in 1998 during your last season at Elm Park when Pardew was in charge, maybe as caretaker initially. He was manager for 7 days 18 March 1998 to 25 March 1998 before being replaced with Tommy Burns, he then replaced Burns 16 September 1999 ...

Re: RFC hooliganism?

Scorpians / Skorpians - they keep changing the spelling of their name to throw the po po off their trail.

TTC rarely turn up at away games, they get as far as Reading station then get confused when no Thames Trains turn up.

Re: Huddersfield fan on train from Maidenhead

a) There should be plenty of seats, particularly as most of us from Reading will be getting the Reading to Paddington fast trains that won't stop at Maidenhead. There are trains from Maidenhead that stop only at Slough before heading on to Paddington, so check arrival times as well as departure as w...

Well certainly in 2014 Dai Xi Li was worth $1.4bn so if that is still the case then they do have deep pockets.
People with deep pockets often have short arms.

Re: Buses to tonights Reading v Fulham game

Presumably all the transport will take xtra time and penalties into account. Imagine if it is 1-1 with 5 to go and the usual numpties start heading off so they can grab their favourite seat on the bus to Arborfield.... I've seen that happen before, people leaving at 90 mins not realising extra time...

Re: Where are you all sitting (Roll Call)

A Reading fan on a Huddersfield forum is suggesting that we've now sold 25,000 tickets, with the whole lower tier being sold. That suggests that we're about 2/3rds through our ticket allocation, if that figure is correct. :o A Reading fan on a Huddersfield forum? - Sounds like he's having "ban...

Something is wrong when a manager is convinced on NATIONAL TV says THE BEST TEAM LOST. after 2 games against the same team.
He should keep quiet before he talks himself out of a job - They probably were the better team but we were the better managed team.
