Re: Season Ticket Refund?

I'll watch some of the iFollow and let the club keep the overpayment. My only gripe is that decision means I also forgo a refund on the Car Park Pass which is extortionate and, given the choice, I would have taken a refund on as it's exploitatively expensive

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. Well it's not the fault of airlines that they have to cancel flights but I don't think anyone would argue that their customers are entitled to a refund for flights they paid fo...

Season Ticket Refund?

Is there any suggestion that season ticket holders will be refunded for the games that will not be played or are behind closed doors?

Personally, I'd be happy to waive this but only if the players/management accept a pay cut or do their bit in some other way

Re: Worst Reading games

I'd throw in a couple of Blackpool games here Firstly, away in about 1979, I think it may have been Boxing Day, 10 hour round coach trip to be 3-0 down in about 20 minutes, 4-0 at half time and finished 5-2. My first ever "why am I bothering?" moment Secondly, 1-1 at home to Blackpool I th...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

I did two Cup away days with the supporters club in the 70's. Wealdstone has already been reported on in extenso . Got beat 2-1, George Duck scored 2 for them. We all ran back to the coaches because Aldershot had about 20 hooligans there to attack us. "Run, they're coming". True story. He...

Re: FA Cup away day memories

League Cup away day memories. Brief for me. 1977 we had beaten Watford 2-1 in the home leg, first round. I went in a friend's dad's car to the away leg, lost 0-1, and then to the replay five days later, lost 5-0. From memory, we were the only away fans in the ground both times, or so it seemed. Any...

We won the next game, won 9 of...

PistolPete If you didn’t like Stam... bad news; if you didn’t like Stam...stay away! (Good riddance to you)

I didn't like Stam and if the style of play is anything like it was under Stam I will be staying away. Another 20 year + season ticket holder no longer attending, to add to the list

Re: Madejski Out

SJM is clearly the greatest thing that has ever happened to the club and it has been on a downward spiral ever since he sold up. If there is once criticism you could make of him it was that, at the time, he kept stressing he would only sell to someone who understood and would continue with the Readi...

Re: BFTG - Aston Villa (A)

As I don't go to many away games these days, I thought I would indulge myself in a BFTG post. Maybe my expectations are lower than most but I am surprised to see so much criticism of the performance. We've won, what, 3-4 games in 2018, are clearly in a rut and are playing probably one of the most di...

Re: Auf Wiedersehen £170m

Neither of our promotions in the past seem to have improved the club's financial position longer term, indeed, the second one seems to have nearly bankrupted it.

Unless you can go up and stay it, the club itself seems to make sod all, the players/agents etc more so

Re: BFTG - Wembley

Credit to the players for a season that exceeded all expectations but today was a game too far and our performance was absolutely abject. Pretty disappointing to get to Wembley and not really try to win the game, particularly as the opposition were nearly equally as poor. Surely one of the worst gam...

Last twelve games Huddersfield W - 3 D - 3 L - 6 Reading W - 8 D - 1 L - 3 Yet Huddersfield are strong favourites to win this game.
