Re: Injury watch 2020/21

Mid Sussex Royal Eddie on Twitter saying Olise out for 12 days



That appears to be a very precise diagnosis.

Would be great if it's that or less but given the club's record on predicting returns from injury, I fear it may be longer.

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Reading are such a bland football club. Yesterday at 5:13 PM #128 fernandopartridge said: The football club is made in the town and region's image. Yep... Boring as oxf*rd At least our football club is in our town. And I never realised The West Midlands had such an exciting image. Probably my fault...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

It's getting to the point you have to wonder if it's a deliberate attempt to get teams to play on the front foot so we can hit them in the break and give Joao room to run in behind. Dangerous game. Good performance, slow start and Cov should have been up by at least 1 before we were (missed first f...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Royals and Racers This thread seems to have departed from " opposition fans back from the game" over the last few days. Surely there are Coventry fans out there saying how shit we were and they were robbed :wink:


After all, they 'shouldn't be losing to a club like Reading'! ;-)

Good performance and result. They actually had a few good chances to win it. Commentator on FAPlayer was so far up Arsenal's arse that I'm surprised he didn't shoot out of Beth Mead's mouth! :twisted: In his world pretty much everything seemed to be down to Arsenal not performing well, rather than a...

yes posted something on instagram . Explains why not in the luton squad anyway, so hopefully we can stop frothing about that now Yep. He would have played last Saturday if fit .

Re: Brentford game postponed

:( :( More time for team to recover I guess. Moore will be back soon. The policy seems inconsistent. We've seen weakened teams fielded, 3 points awarded for no shows in L1 & L2, and postponements. If the shoe was on the other foot, we'd say this is a fair outcome. But I'd have wanted a crack at...

Re: Reading FC Womens World

The gulf in resources and quality between the really big clubs like Chelsea, Arsenal & Man City and the rest in the England's top division is now even greater in the women's game than it is in the men's.

I might be being blind and missed this - but can you get BT Extra through the red button on Sky (if you have a BT sub via Sky)? From: https://www.lutontown.co.uk/news/2021/january/info-for-reading/ To access Extra, BT subscribers can simply press the red button on their remote (Sky platforms) or sw...

Luton cup game is on ESPN+ for anyone in (or appearing to be in) the USA.

https://www.espn.com/watch/schedule/_/type/upcoming/channel/ESPN_PLUS/startDate/20210109

You can get a monthly pass and that will also cover you for any other games that Sky cover in the forthcoming month.

BT Sport extra 6- anyone know how to watch the extra channels ? You need a subscription so at the very minimum it's £25 for a month sub. So that's a no from me. I have BT Sport through SKY system- do BT have a red button to watch extra ? This is from 6 years ago but I think it still applies? https:...

Re: Rival Watch

imo this should be applicable for league fixtures too. Could lead to some utterly farcical games. Imagine if a club had all it’s forwards unavailable but was still forced to fulfil a fixture.... Give over. If an illness, stomach bug or flu spreads through a squad, you still need to fulfil fixtures....

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (a) sponsored by a no pressure game

My view is we've def got a strong chance of the play offs IF we have better luck with injuries. Our form is basically mid table since we started having injury issues but because of our start we have maintained a play off place, if we continue mid table form though we will end up at best top 10. Its...
