Doing 'ends' or 'sides'. Think you'll find that a lot of the 'taking' has happened away from the reddy eye. Mind you, So'ton got dispatched from the Tilehurst End back in the day. And the game hadn't even started.
Aldershot is the only place I went to with Reading and felt genuinely hated. Its was this game in 1989. Away terrace way over capacity, I remember being hardly able to lift my arms at times and that scaring me more than the threat of getting a slap.
That 1989 game was all a bit of a pissed up blur after getting wasted at that pub by North Camp station beforehand. I think that was the same day that "Ratty" booted some Aldershot bloke off a scooter as he rode past giving it the biggun.
