Ok, total hijack from today, but I thought all record of this had been buried under the SB toilets...

I'd forgotten just how bad wiggy was, but I do remember how poor flat-face was, which was a shame for a pro who'd done so well for us the previous seasons.

Anyway, back on track, on this day 2003 we thump Ipswich 3-1 with Forster running the show (the second a right peach):

From ... https://www.11v11.com/teams/reading/tab ... Spartans/#

pretty comprehensive, and I find you can then take the finer details and get more from other Google* searches.

*other search engines are available.

33 years ago?! Shlt.

I was there. We had a side of their main terrace (as it was in those days, before becoming their main stand). Don't remember much other than Tricky Trev scoring on or about or just after HT.

Next match was the 2-2 home game with Wolves. Remember this more for the then attendance capacity busting restrictions imposed on EP ("Offici ally" 13,000 there that night?); Mike Lewis cooking the actual gate receipts and (allegedly) pocketing some/most of them; the "away end" being made open for home fans; the 48 Wolves fans in A Stand displaying "Bhattis Out" banners (their overseas owners at the time) that nobody other than the Southbank could see (pointless); and as for the game I can't remember any of it other than the disbelief that we didn't beat a lowly Wolves team.

Next game was Bury away in the fog and got beat 3-1 in a totally inept performance. I was there for that too. Remember thinking we played like we were already up. Which, I suppose, we really nearly were.

My. How times have changed.

I was at that Wolves game too. Incredible to think it was that long ago. That was the only home game I went to that season. I did go to Fellowes Park for our 6-0 drubbing at the hands of a rampant Walsall side the following February so I was a bit of a curse on the club that season.

On this day in 2008 we played out a cracking 0-0 draw with QPR.


Reading 0-0 QPR 25th October 2008

Reading and QPR played out a goalless draw in Saturday's Championship match.

QPR, who scked manager Iain Dowie on Friday, forced good second-half saves from Marcus Hahnemann through Daniel Parejo and Akos Buszaky.

Reading went close to taking the lead just before the break with Radek Cerny saving Noel Hunt's close-range header.

QPR were also lucky to survive two good penalty appeals while Kalifa Cisse's header almost grabbed the win for Reading late on.

Reading manager Steve Coppell:
"A 0-0 draw is not the end of the world. As people famously say, we can extract the positives. We tried to win the game.

"We can criticise some of the things we did but as long as I have that kind of effort every game I won't be too disappointed."

QPR caretaker manager Gareth Ainsworth:
"There are discussions about the team and discussions about individual players.

"Flavio has put a lot of money in the club and he wants to know how his investments are going.

"Already we have made a point that we are going to be meeting regularly, not just with Flavio but with the other people who have put their money in the club.

"I have the final input on who goes out there and talk my way through the meetings justifying every player. But with a performance like that today the team picks itself, which is a great problem to have."

Reading: Hahnemann, Rosenior, Bikey, Ingimarsson, Armstrong, Kebe (Long 80), Gunnarsson (Harper 73), Karacan (Cisse 73), Stephen Hunt, Noel Hunt, Doyle.
Subs Not Used: Andersen, Kelly.

Booked: Rosenior.

QPR: Cerny, Leigertwood, Stewart, Hall, Connolly, Buzsaky, Mahon, Rowlands, Cook, Di Carmine (Blackstock 60), Parejo (Balanta 86).
Subs Not Used: Delaney, Tommasi, Cole.

Booked: Parejo.

Att: 20,571

Maybe we just don't have enough Icelanders in the team? Anyone know how the Andressons are developing?

Look at QPR's team as well - some absolute quality there. Akos Buszaky!

Really?????

Despite this being only 2 years after the 106 team, there is plenty of shlt in there. Rosenior, Cisse, Noel Hunt, Bikey, Karacan. No better than some of what we have today.........

The 1985/6 team however is a completely different matter. This oozed pure class and commitment all over the pitch.

popped in to say this.

----

I got a few games last season and that’s something that I thought I would never be able to do, that was an amazing feeling,” Armstrong admitted.

I’m just thankful that I got those few games and managed to step out onto the Madejski Stadium pitch for the fans.

I loved every time I played for Reading from that first season I came here in 2008.

I just love playing and I had a decent debut season.

I have my player-of-the-season trophy at home and that means a lot to me.

I unfortunately never really managed to get back after that, but that’s life, isn’t it? You just have to get on with it."
