Re: RUMOUR - Marc McNulty

thats how dull this window has suddenly become, that people are reduced to making lame jokes about golfers with similar names Saw the golfer Mc Nulty playing in the Monaco Open some years ago-the highlight of that day was meeting Sharon Stone, but that's another story.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Eastleigh (a) sponsored by football is back

According to the official site’s match report the pitch was both dry and sticky. As excuses go that’s up there.

Re: Rumours: Timo Pukki and Fernando Karanga

Sound like the sort of players we have signed in the past that are destined to be bench at best.

Re: The Local Journo Thread

This is all about the demise of local papers in general isn't it? Back in the days the Evening Post and sometimes the Chronicle were a must read for supporters as it was the only way to see pictures and full reports of the games. The EP had some good reporters in those days as well, Russel Kempson ...

Re: Rumour: Stephen Ireland

I think the marketing people at the club will be asking the Football League shortly to change our name to London Irish. Justification will be that we have more Irish players than the rugby team and that nowadays Reading is almost a London suburb.. The shame is that unlike in the days of Long and Do...

Re: Rumour: Stephen Ireland

I heard a rumour that when he got the job as Reading FC reporter he was forced to change his name by deed poll to Friday as it was thought Reading fans might like it due to the association with Robin Friday. Don't know if that's true though.

Re: Liam Moore to Brighton

If Moore left Leicester because he wasn't getting enough game time then surely he risks exactly the same scenario at Brighton as they have an established centre back pairing. If I was him I'd stay with us and retain his dignity. At Leicester it was clear he wasn’t in their plans (didn’t give him a ...

Re: Anyone For Chinese?

Don't know about rational, long in the tooth, maybe. I'm not a fan of venture capitalists but the days of football clubs being owned by the philanthropic local guy done good are long gone and his type are more prevalent in the game. However, Samuelson was not the cause of our problems but was left ...

Why, what's he doing in the picture? +1 My son wrote to Samuelson some years back, asking if Reading FC would in some way sponsor a charity trip he was going on. He replied with a very encouraging letter and a personal cheque from Mr and Mrs Samuelson. Now obviously he's a wealthy man, but he didn'...
