Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (h) sponsored by a new hope

The love-in for Lampard was irritating but tbf to the man himself he acknowledged in his post match interview that Derby didn’t deserve to win and behaved respectfully otherwise.

Re: Robin Friday

I knew him mostly from pubs in the town and, sometimes on the pitch. In those days, if you were bored on a Saturday and wanted somewhere to go, Elm Park was simple to get to, simple to get in and cost pennies. At the time, we were all into being in Bands, interesting substances, sex and so on. Trul...

Re: Robin Friday

Re: Summer Transfers

Reckon they are lined up for loans. Of course no issue adding them a squad number later Anyway on Smith, I rate him. Did you see that little clip of his scissor kick in training? Was nice but featured the most Chris Gunter bit of defending of all time. Reckon you’ll like it I like the look of Smith...

I haven’t read Nelson Oliviera as well?


Signing Oliveira would be a big mistake and I sincerely hope the club is not considering it.

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. Ooh really. Did she cross her...

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.

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

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.
