Re: Shane Long......

Throwing his shirt on the floor is poor form. Missing the pass to Oster (and by such a margin, it went for a goal kick) for an almost certain 2 - 0 lead within 15 mins is even more unforgivable. You can moan about having bias refs but nothing will influence a game more than poor performances Shane. ...

I want somewhere decent to drink on a matchday, some lenient stewards, to get rid of the jobsworth safety offficers, and replace them with people who will listen to the fans, some atmosphere, some ambition that is within the club's means, a little respect towards us, get rid of music after goals, m...

Utterly concur with andrew1957, or, as another poster put it on another thread 'Oxford 2 Aldershot 3' - let's put this into perspective, shall we? However, having made such a bad start, Reading are going to have a hell of a job recovering to a mid-table position now - it's going to be a struggle to...

Our show of support was embarrassing at Sunderland!!! Not so much for those who were there but more for those who werent!!! I am not embarassed about not going to Sunderland.

Has anyone got a scan of the letter that accompanied the season ticket renewals last year. I want to read the phrase again about ambition and plans for the future. I'm not sure why, but our activity over the summer and our insistence on trying to lower the wages situation in the Premiership from a l...

You're getting there Coppell. Well done for putting Fae on but now you just need to get Convey on.

However, I maintain all this is 15/20 mins too late.

Just a thought, I wonder how confused Fae is sat on the bench. Our record signing and he's second choice and not subbed even when our midfield is in such trouble.

They're right, genius and madness is a fine line.

hang on, our under 21's highly rated striker comes off for Shane Long meanwhile Gunnarsson, Hunty and Rosenior are floundering like a WW1 foot soldier in Flanders.

What on earth is going on.

The most annoying thing for me is Coppell's insistance on delaying his subs to the 70th minute or so. As soon as a second goal goes in, I'd like to see changes made to try and change our format of play. Why Fae and / or Convey aren't already on for Gunnarsson (average squad player who's also taken a...

Ingi and Bikey all the way for me at the moment. Ingi is a constant performer in our team and I can't see his skills aging in the next year or so. Bikey is in the Sonko mould but his distribution and calm under pressure seem to edge it for me. I still want to see Sonks return to the team but I think...

Re: Reading fans and their booing during the game

Is it only me that notices this but are our fans the only one's to have the ability to boo a player or official at every game we play in this league. At Utd it was Ronaldo, Rooney and Stiles At Chelsea it was Cech, Lampard, Drogba, Pizarro, the referee, Mourinho At Everton it was Johnson, Howard, t...

Ah, if it's close to Ealing that's an option. How long does it take to walk to the Brentford ground from Ealing? 20-30 mins I think Enough for 2 cans Good call. Coupled with the hour train to get to Ealing from work, that's a good few cans in prep. This looks like it might lead to a 'work from home...

Hi all, I have been reliably informed that a gent I know (Spurs fan) is taking the half time challenge at the Brentford match (kicking a ball into the centre circle from the goal line I think) in a Reading shirt. All those going, please give him as much grief as possible. I lost money to this gent o...

I haven't seen the incident yet but it doesn't exactly sound career ending. I'm of the opinion that if you can unsettle the oppositions goalkeeper then you should take every opportunity to do it so long as you don't go in deliberately trying to cause injury. I personally can't wait for the next Hunt...
