Re: RUMOUR - Points deduction

So many other clubs who have breached the FFP rules and faced zero sanctions over the last few years - yet we do it and we’re immediately bent over and told to brace ourselves. Whilst I’m sure we’re banged to rights, handing out points deductions just after a pandemic seems a bit pointless - my unde...

Re: If Reading didn’t exist

it would be Brentford for me. My Grandfathers team, and much like us 5-10 years ago.

New Kit - Megastore status -3rd August

10:00am - megastore not too busy compared to the way it will likely be by about lunchtime- but still a big queue for printing. If your child is under 7, they do not have any kits which will fit. Those are apparently 2 weeks away (so much for the new supplier being ready to go, and more reliable than...

Re: CONFIMRED - Joao Virginia

The second goal is a decent hit, dips and is always going away from him. I am not sure you would get a similar type goal from most Championship players. It also took a significant deflection - it was going centrally off his boot. Edit: also for Ian's benefit. I was surprised too by the implosion on...

Re: My time at Reading FC Academy

Chelsea produce more professional footballers, of a higher quality, than Reading. . Historically, you're quite correct. However, history means absolutely nothing in junior football - you're investing in what you think the situation will be like, in 10,12,14 years time, when they're potentially read...

Re: My time at Reading FC Academy

It's fascinating really. The development you see with these kids from the RFC development centres is excellent. My eldest did U7 development last term, and will step to U8 Advanced next term. I don't care if he doesn't make it - as long as he loves every minute of the experience, then I'm good. Look...

Re: Reading or England?

Club over country for me. Would rather see Reading win the championship in the style of 2005/06, on the basis that it would be really rather good to experience it without being drunk out of my skull for the last 10 games of the season :lol: A CL win would indicate that we'd been promoted, and done w...

Re: Madjeski and Howe

LOL at supporting Reading when we were in the prem would be deemed as glory hunting - jumpin on the band wagon more fitting. I see the sentiment though. But i feel its how a a lot of clubs are being run now, unless you have a football fan owner who just enjoys the game. Our recent investors probabl...

Re: Madjeski and Howe

Re: Madjeski and Howe

3points Apparently Howe and Gourlay really don’t get on. I guess I’m not surprised


That'll be because Howe knows how this football club should be run, and the ways which have brought us success.
And Gourlay thinks the answer is to throw money at the problem.

Re: Theoretical: Sack Stam and replace with ...?

There is only one logical answer. Neil Warnock. Track record of getting unfancied teams promoted, galvanises struggling squads, plays a more direct style that our supporters seem to want and has worked wonders at Cardiff. I know he is a controversial and polorising figure but I think if he's the ma...

Re: CONFIMRED - Sean Morrison signs for Cardiff

This is another master stroke by Hammond. How much money has this bloke made, over and above the valuations of our players in the last 10 years? I liked the lad...but 3-4million quid for a defender who can't keep a constant 90 mins of concentration? That's stunning business.... I hope they've stipul...

Reading 4-0 Ipswich

Just in time for the club to say we're strong enough to mount a challenge and to ignore obvious weaknesses....

Expect to lose the following 10 games and be bottom by Xmas.

Re: Adkins back to Southampton ?

I didn't/don't like Adkins. But, unsteadying the ship further at this point, is suicide - the business side is screwed, that much is clear - we need stability in the management in order to stop us from disappearing into Pompeyland. As others have said - be careful what you wish for - Adkins IS a bel...

The law of averages dictates that if we get to the final, it's got to be our turn to win it. Winning at Wembley would be incredible.

I was at the Swindon game. I completely forgot about this, so thanks for the reminder, but I've wanted to see the halftime analysis for ages, to see if my inflatable sheep got a good Valentines day ITV airing, as I threw it up towards the ITV box at the back of the terrace. I doubt it did, but stil...
