Promising - the Fan Led Review

The interim report from the Govt’s Fan Led Review was published late last week and it looks very promising. This is a very significant and positive moment for fans’ involvement in the governance of football and we should feel much encouraged. Doubtless there will be some pushback from the football a...

Why join STAR for 2021-22

Football is still in the age of uncertainty but we sincerely hope we’ll all be back in the Madstad (SCL Stadium) very soon and for the very special 2021-22 season – celebrating our 150th anniversary. STAR is back too, of course. After a year of not much more than Zoom meetings (Fans Forum and Hall o...

Re: Fan engagement survey 2019/20

Green Great - is there a trophy for this?


No, but you'll be delighted to know we did get one for coming top in the FSA's version of this in 2019.

Re: Sustain the Game!

The campaign looks for urgent action from the authorities to protect the very existence of clubs in this dangerous time. Which authorities, and what action is required? Looks very broad in scope and very general at the moment. A bit "Down with this sort of thing", dare I say it. Fine if i...

Re: Hall of Fame Sun 21 March 7.30pm

Appreciate the compliments, thanks. By going virtual we reached a lot more people than could have attended at the Madstad and a rough reckoning suggests at least 500 saw all / nearly all the show. But it's not the same as the live event where you can mingle with the actual legends. One solution may ...

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

I've got £100k in my head for some reason, but no idea why or if it's accurate. Under the current deal, which I think runs to the end of next season, I believe the fees for live games for Division 2/Championship clubs are, for the home club, £100,000 per game (unless it’s played on Sunday (£120,000...

Hall of Fame Sun 21 March 7.30pm

It's the 2020 show at last. STAR's Reading FC Hall of Fame 2020 was postponed almost a year ago due to the pandemic and there hasn't been a suitable opportunity to do it as a live event at the Madstad since. So, instead, it's going to be an online event that all supporters can reach, for free, via R...

Re: Sustain the Game!

What's the plan for a European Super League? Is it that the big clubs in each country piss off and start their own European-wide league? Or will they carry on playing domestically too? If the former i'm actually up for it. I'd happily watch the Prem again if the top 4-6 clubs naffed off. If the lat...

Re: 150th Anniversary Thread - 2021/22

At the risk of being a bit too detailed on this: It would be very strange for a club formed in Feb 1871 to wait until Feb 1872 to play its first match especially as there were a few clubs already in the vicinity. There's no entry in the FA Annual of July 1871 for RFC but there is in the July 1872 ed...

Re: 150th Anniversary Thread - 2021/22

As we were founded on Christmas Day 1871, I take it our Boxing Day match next year will be the big 150th anniversary game. Hopefully it will be a better spectacle than the travesty that was the 2-1 home defeat to Burton on our 500th Madejski Stadium game celebration. There's no actual evidence to s...

Re: We will iFollow the Reading on laptop and TV

Green If they're keen to maximise the response rate, why the short window to reply?

Mixed messages from the FSA there.

Seems they're not really fussed on reading feedback, just on having ammo to go chest thumping with.


Sorry, dunno re short window. Key thing is to respond to survey!
