Re: Last 100 players on loan

So... shall we try and name a Loanee XI? I remember reading a Reading FC book, can't remember which one - Maybe the Robin Friday book, It told the story of how Reading had a player (goalkeeper?) on loan from a club (Arsenal?) and it was an informal type of loan. Anyway they forgot he wasn't their pl...

Re: Last 100 players on loan

39. Luke Chadwick (x2) Good catch. Interestingly, this is as a result of a Reading fan suggesting this to Pardew at a fans forum. The fan pointed out that if we allowed Luke Chadwick's loan to expire and then started a new loan a week or two later he would be eligible for the play offs as they woul...

Re: The idiots of Twitter thread

I've also noticed a new craze of tweets that start "Imagine..." That seems innocent enough but Soon you realise they end like this: "Imagine waking up and remembering you support Swindon #embarassing" "Imagine not standing at football matches and sitting instead" "...

Re: 2017-2018 Squad Numbers

13 - Have Reading Fans everywhere been released on a free or just not worthy of a shirt number this season because Stam doesn't expect them to feature much?

PS - I'm all in favour of dropping the 13 thing now, sure keep the shirt vacant but don't bang on about it being Reading Fans etc.

Re: Favourite rumour?

My favourite rumour was one I started for a laugh about 10 years ago, I claimed to have spotted a photoshoot for our new Brown away kit outside the offices of Westcoast (shirt sponsors at the time), things really kicked off on here and the royalmail mailing list, So much so that Andy the Reading FC ...

Re: Safe standing progress

a) No, my back would not cope with standing all game. b) I would move, but since I sit in the Lower West near the away fans I can't see this are being made a standing area. As I've said before, I imagine the North Stand would be the preferred safe standing area for the club as it would reduce the nu...
