Autograph hunting question

My lad wants to get some autographs before the Wigan game.

Can anyone please tell me what time we need to get to the ground to catch the players arriving?

Sell up. It's not like it's a ground steeped in history. Would any Reading fan really give a oxf*rd?

What games are you watching this season mate? He's our best defender by a mile.

Re: Wholesale changes in defence??

Anyone who witnessed Ferdinand walking across the pitch on Saturday will realise he is no nearer a return to first team action. Ferdinand walks like he's got wooden legs normally the poor bloke, but yes if fit he needs to start. I'd also agree that Taylor deserves a run at left back, as he's a more...

if we lose our last 7 games in all comps which will be 1 win in 15, then Clarke should be sacked surely?

Re: Bournemouth (h) prediction thread

I think the fans deserve to know the team the day before so we can judge whether to bother if Clarke is going to through another game.

Re: Appreciation for Jem Karacan

yes he had a decent game, but his wages are high as he signed his last deal in the Premier League, so is he really worth a new deal on that money? Interesting to see if he would accept a new deal on lower wages.

Taylor Norwood Mackie

Bench Anderson + kids

Re: The truth about Royston...

For Royston to be frozen out in this injury crisis just shows how disruptive he must have been last season. I back the manager on this one. We have a lot of young players coming through, clearly Adkins doesn't want them being influenced by him. It was always a disaster signing and a car crash waitin...

Re: from disaster to disaster

Fans calling for Adkins to go are brainless, he's a very good manager and achieved 7th last year with no investment. I would question the clubs decision to only offer Jobi a one year deal, many seem to forget HE turned that down, he was not released. Selling Le Fondre made sense, Adkins didn't fancy...

Re: from disaster to disaster

After the last 12 months we all thought there was a silver lining on its way. The deal has still not been completed. We dumped 3 quality pros and then decided to sell our one goalscorer and our best defender. It seems we have decided to also get rid of one of our best ever goalkeepers and replace h...

Re: No left back = taking the piss.

Adkins clearly rates Obita, hence why he gave him his chance ahead of McAnuff on the left last season, and has used him as his go to guy for positions he's struggling to fill. Adkins obviously feels that Obita is someone he can trust to play central midfield during the injury crisis and that Cummin...

Re: No left back = taking the piss.

Why the **** do we STILL not have a left back? We did have one but a) he and the manager didn't want him to play there (madness) and b) he's now joined our first choice injury 11 :cry: Obita plays on the Wing & in Midfield. He is a cover left back. Obita is never a winger, he can't beat a man, ...

Re: It's a generational thing

First went with my old man back in the Dean Horrix era, sat on the wall down the front of the south bank, then joined the south bank proper in my teens. Back then you couldn't even see a Reading kit at school, no internet, no goals on sky, nothing! I just enjoyed going to football with my old man. T...

Re: Team for next season

Can't be bothered to pick from the list of players in the earlier posts. But clearly the clubs finances are not good, so if we don't get promoted, then I think the policy will be to try and off load the high earners (Bridge, Pog, Guthrie, Carrico, Drenthe, Kelly etc etc), whether that's right or wro...

Re: Michael Hector

Hector should start next season, we should stick with him. He's young, pacey and comfortable on the ball.

A back four with Gunter, Hector and Obita in it will be exciting and very athletic.

If we don't sort his contract out and he leaves it will be criminal
