I'm sure we have fans who have predicted nothing but doom and gloom since before our last promotion.

It would seem reasonable to expect them to learn from previous mistakes but the Reading fan can be a strange beast.............from the shoulder up in particular :roll:

Those who begrudge doing the same are just decending to the level of those who were prepared to make such a crass decision in the first place. Obviously I don't agree. I'm the first to put my hand in my pocket when a few million asians have been devastated by a tsunami, or when David Walliams avoid...

Under the circumstances I'm against the fans having to pay anything. This is not a case of contributing to a worthy cause in order to make up a small shortfall. BBCRB were held to ransom to pay way over the odds. Won't see another penny from me. I paid RFC £710 for my season tickets, and I paid £...

Convey doesn't pass as 2 footed but his right foot is good enough for him to have the confidence to come inside and even swap to the right. Shorey can't do this just like Glen Little can't play on the left...............Convey is an international just like the 2 footed Salako and the others are not....

If he establishes himself as a Premiership full back, that will be one hell of a journey from Orient reserves, and I really hope he makes it but can't see him gettting any further with a right foot that wouldn't look out of place in the Conference.

IMHO an absolutely outrageous decision, which no-one can support. Meanwhile, BBC Berks, who have provided the club with masses of free publicity even back when we were sh*t and in Tier 3, are dropped like a stone, leaving the number of fans able to hear radio coverage of their team massively reduce...

For the record, he will flop badly in the Premiership and will be back in Sainsburys this time next season.


I feel sure that Dave, an unambitous signing when he joined from Cambridge, is most grateful for your input.

Reading the whole piece rather than the snippets that some choose to post, I find myself in general agreement with Dave Kitson. He seems to be refering, in large part, to those very embarrassing contributions in that thread regularly regurgitated by one of our moderators (and much enjoyed by so many...

Re: Signings are not good enough

Lets face it,our signings so far are hardly going to strike the fear of God in to any premiership team. Some Korean guy who is 27 and another low division 27yr old defender. The fact we could lose Sidwell is a joke. Lets hope we are not another Sunderland I think you'll find the joke is a little cl...

Why are you all complaining??? £16 to watch a top European side sounds a bargain to me. Wow its a friendly, big deal... I'm with you...............and we do have a very similar points total :wink: The club needs the money and this is not a bad friendly................circa 18k would be my guess.......

I hope the rules have changed here because most home games are expected to sell out next season. So, there will be many fans who won't get to the Madstad very often and I for one wouldn't begrudge someone in that position who is prepared to buy a ticket for every away fixture (cup matches as well) f...

Brilliant news for RFC and, as others have already pointed out, this is in stark contrast to protracted negociations that have taken place with one of his lesser talented team mates :?

In a recent interview, when asked to name the most skillful player in Reading's squad, Steve Sidwell picked Dave Kitson. Fitness will always be an issue with Kit's, but I don't see much appreciation in this thread of just how technically sound our top striker is. Why worry about the player who score...
