Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

In keeping with several threads asking people to reminisce, I'm doing one on the worst refereeing injustices we've had. 2 stick in my mind: 1) Jason McAteer not getting sent off for the penalty at Wembley. Yes, Archie should have scored and we should have won anyway, but the comeback was never on i...

Re: The most charismatic/moronic fan we have or have ever had

Is he still alive? I remember him! Still alive, still every game, coat newish and ‘improved’, probably coat v2.0. It must be at least v4. Story goes he saw someone at a game with the same coat and bought it from him because his was getting a bit ( :shock: ) shabby :lol: :lol: Especially 'bit shabby'!

Re: The most charismatic/moronic fan we have or have ever had

If it's 'Super Fan' then Blackie and his coat(s) has to be in the running. Not sure how he fits with the definition of 'charismatic' though.

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

I does depress me sometimes when fans argue for their own exploitation. +1, this never fails to surprise and :| me. Purely as an industry football is pretty abhorrent, the people running it (from the local FA all the way up to FIFA) equally so. I've been very critical of owners and business managem...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Would assume my remaining bundle tickets will rollover to the net season - even thought Ts & Cs say you forfeit them. Goodwill gesture by the club will encourage positive behaviour from supporters - the "tough shit you forfeit" response would make people think twice about spending. It...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Anyone asking for a refund should be immediately banned by the club. None of this is their fault and they owe you nothing. It's not the customers fault either and legally, the seller may owe the customers a refund for something they sold but can now not provide. I would hope the club have adequate ...

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

It's going to come down to a question of survival for many clubs, our own included. In our case it's not because we don't have owners able and seemingly willing to dip deep into their pockets to help club and fans out. Instead it's the FFP regulations that were brought in for an entirely different s...

Sonny aluko is presently feet up, sipping a Pina Colada and laughing his tits off at this thread Why pick on him? For all we know, he might have been one of those who already agreed to defer. The trouble is, it seems that all of the players have to agree before the club can move forward. Personally...

Re: Old Reading Footage on VHS/film/Youtube

Southbank in full voice throughout with many chants you don't here often these days! Younger viewers will be perplexed by non-Liverpool fans singing You'll Never Walk Alone. It was a standard song for all teams once but, somehow, Liverpool took ownership of it. Maybe because Gerry Marsden is from L...

Re: Old season ticket holder.

Can’t stand the stadium announcer.Did he use to announce at Bracknell Bees ? I do believe DJ Megamix was from the Bracknell Bees and thought it would be good to bring the US razzmatazz to the Mad Stad. :evil: I don't know whether he has mellowed and eased off with the USA approach or whether, havin...

Full match playlist for Wolves at home December 1994. Well worth watching right through this. Southbank in full voice throughout with many chants you don't here often these days! Scott Taylor kicking lumps out of them, got 2 players subbed by half time! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4tQj2...

Re: CONFIMRED - Ayub Timbe.

Zip He’s looked skilful on the ball but surprisingly reluctant to use his pace to run at the opposition. We need to see more of him.


Perhaps because he'd seen enough of our team to realise that he'd be up there on his own waiting ages for support to arrive!

Re: Royal Elm Park

What income? The Thai’s own that land. RFC get nothing from the development other than the £15m we sold the land for which immediately cleared debts. Nothing of REP will be owned by RFC. If that’s not the case and my memory has slipped please link me to what we will own and make money from. Thanks....

Re: Royal Elm Park

Would 1000 fewer fans a game outweight the income from the development? Hmmm. And if we are challenging at the top or in the PL, that 1000 will likely be replaced by others anyway. What income?

Re: Coronavirus outbreak

So Italy is suffering a death rate double the rest of the world it seems. Is there a specific reason for that? Is it due to more elderly being infected? Is there an age breakdown for those affected? Could just be due to a different testing regime, as the reported death rate is against the amount of...

Re: End of Season Club Dinner

Love the "just" £90 for a 3 course meal and probably a cheap glass of wine that would normally cost no more than £30 in total. So having paid to watch the game you are then paying a charge of around £60 for the privilege of meeting players who we have paid this season for their work. Not ...

It’s potentially very messy. There remains the prospect of the games being played behind closed doors just to bring the season to a conclusion.
