Re: Rumour - Josh Laurent

Whilst big money signings are more "whelming," we've only had very modest success. If we think back to Kitson, Dolye, Hunt (Stephen and Noel), Long, Kebe: when Reading get the recruitment right, we get inexpensive players that really grow here. If it doesn't work out, not too much gambles ...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Sutekh Really like that Sporting kit, something like that would be most epacceptable.


Agreed, looks like it's a beauty. I assume it has a white panel on the back?

Re: ifollow

What a disgrace, did they not think 100's of thousands of season ticket holders would log in at the same time Clubs/FA have probably paid them a shedload to use their service and ifollow clearly had pound signs in their eyes.

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

Re the criticism of our players for the third goal. Wasn’t it clear that the reason they were jogging back rather than sprinting that they were tracking the possibility of runners coming in behind them to receive a ball cut back from the touchline. It was a percentage decision taken on the premise ...

Re: BFT well I don’t know what to call it without resorting to a lot of naughty words

Next week will be the twentieth anniversary of me watching Reading. I've probably missed around ten to possibly fifteen home matches in those two decades. The period over which it happens varies, but the pattern is often remarkably similar: - the manager has a measure of success: players look brave,...

Re: Player of the season so far...

Pélé.
Gunter.
Méïté.
Morrison.

Not necessarily in that order.

I rate consistency really highly and is my main criterion - Swift and Ejaria have been our most skilful players at times, but also (Swift especially) the most wasteful.

Re: BFTG - Baggies

I feel we're losing a bit of perspective here. WBA were extraordinarily effective at closing us down. Every time we had the ball there seemed to be two of theirs surrounding him, and more of theirs surrounding every Reading player trying to make themselves available for a pass, stopping us being abl...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (a) sponsored double header part 2

Fantastic. Just brilliant. Even on the radio that was a fantastic game. Loved it. Like I said earlier in the cup, you can't get excited about a bank balance, so a cup runs makes the whole heartache of watching Reading these last few years worthwhile. Next round - a strong Reading team, a few first t...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Most people do not understand how they interpret information. It’s a common mistake to believe we perceive the outside world and make accurate judgements on the basis of those perceptions. Actually what we do is scan for a few stand-out elements, then match those to a form of template we already hav...

Re: BFTT Leeds

You would imagine Leeds will be a Premier League side next season, and yet Reading largely nullified their swift passing all-out attacking style to a small number of good chances. The margin was much smaller than the league table would suggest, and with just a little bit of extra luck we could have ...
