Re: Reading FC Womens World

Look fairly comfortable in 4th. Slight shame they are so far from 3rd but seems to be a solid enough season Considering who the top three are, it's puts us Best of the Rest. Man. City, Chelsea and Arsenal finish in the top three most (if not all) seasons. It was so obvious who the top 3 should be t...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Royals and Racers is no doubt surprised and pleased to see that the Reading FC ACademy Twitter is actually providing game updates. But because it's not on the standard fixture lists there's no coverage on flashscores.co.uk and the like.

It's still 2-1 to Reading as per most recent tweet.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Cardiff City (h) sponsored by Jason Bowen

I notice when buying tickets for this online the system doesn’t give an option for you to load the game onto your member card instead you only have options to pick them up from the ground or print them out at home. Very odd. You can load it to your card. It's just that you have to work hard to find...

Re: Thames Valley Royals

Whilst at university in 1982 I went to visit a Miss G Maxwell, who was secretary of a society I wanted to join. She was absolutely lovely. Anyway, I handed over my £1.50 and we chatted for 10 minutes about football. Only on the way down the stairs did I suddenly twig who she was. Never met her again...

Re: BFTG QPR

paultheroyal Excellent defensive performance. People slating Gunter (who was actually decent) can’t even bring themselves to acknowledge being in the right place to clear that shot off the line, dreary me.

Might be because that was Morrison.

Re: FA Cup away day memories

My dad took me to Aldershot v Reading in Jan 67 - my first away game. Lost 0-1 and there was a then record crowd of 16,500 squeezed in to the Rec. Sat on the touchline for a while and then my dad stuck me on top of a tea kiosk for a clear view. How the fu ck they got 19,138 in there three years lat...

Re: Reading FC Womens World

RoyalBlue Maybe the men’s team should be looking for some tips.

Funny you should say that. When I saw that goalmouth scramble, I was certain that the Brighton women's team had picked up their defensive tips from Reading's men's team.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (a) sponsored by a Phil Parkinson flick on

Since Yiadom was already going to miss a game for 5 Yellows, if he had received a second yellow and been sent off, he would have missed the Leeds game anyway. Question, had he been sent off for two yellows would he have missed 1 or 2 games? He would only have missed one game, which would be for the...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Station scheduled to open in late 2020 according to RBC newsletter. Won't be holding my breath.

On the fares to "Reading stations" issue, there is recent local precedent. Oxford Parkway is ticketed separately from Oxford.

This is about the time of year that the BBC bring out their laughable Price of Football survey, in which they consistently have failed to notice Reading's low prices.

So Premier League excepted until the second matchday, we're already down to just 8 football league teams who can threaten our wins record - Sheff Weds, Charlton, Blackpool, Lincoln, Fleetwood, Plymouth, Swindon and Exeter.

tmesis I don't think I'd call Maskell a success either.


I thought that but looking at his wiki it's 72 apps and 99 goals :shock: That cant be correct, can it?

Should be 26 league goals.

Back in the 1960s how many Reading fans dreamed of Puskas, Moore and Pelé playing for the club? Wasn't it 1956 when Puskas ran rings, with Hungary, around the England team? I remember watching that match in B&W on TV 1953. You're older than you thought. But you might remember some other Hungari...

Re: Rival Watch

Disciplinary points deciding positions? Is that new? Yes - last season it was just points, goal difference, goals scored, then play-off. But obviously it will never apply in practice at the end of a season. Do Assistant Coach cards count as well? Asking for a friend. :lol: No, it's just players. I ...
