Re: We are interested in Hiram Boetang

This is a big step up as he has never really played at this level. Low wages and low risk. Could be great could be terrible but a squad player at best Watch a bit of Exeter and this lad has a lot about him. Powerful player who can control a game. Exeter missed him a lot when he was out. Still can't...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Started off by saying that Carrick and older Scholes would have had better careers if the English weren't so obsessed with blood-and-thunder tackling, then this: "I don't think tackling is a quality. It is a recurso , something you have to resort to, not a characteristic of your game. At Liver...

Re: Next Season's Squad.

Bacuna, Swift and Baker have all taken decent set pieces at times certainly Bacuna must be one of the quickest forgotten players in our history... we were around the bottom of the championship, he got a move to a premier league club and we have not missed him at all. Says so much about the emergenc...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by Scott Murray

Sutekh FT 1-1


Glad that's over not just for the result but also because if I had to listen to anymore of that BCFC commentary I think I would be violently sick.

Who do they think they are Real Madrid?

Elm Park Kid The manner of Rotherham's defeat is important as well. Will seriously knock their confidence.


And the goal difference effectively makes it an extra point.

[quote="Dick Habbin's hairdo"]FTR, a true fan in my eyes is anyone - regardless of whether they go to games or not - who answers "Reading FC" whenever asked which team they support. Same for me.. When I first started watching Reading we were on crowds of 2000-2500 so I was happy ...

Gomes going back to Portugal for two days. Someone check Strap's blood pressure. Do you think he will come back? :D After all the crap he's probably had to deal with since he arrived at Reading, the beaches and warmth of Portugal must be very inviting!

Re: BFTG Leeds Home

Interesting comments from Gomes re: Kelly: He is not injured. He wasn't selected. The reason is, remember the last time that he played. I must work inside me to bring him back to the team. I didn't like what happened at Sheffield United. He's still my player, he's like my son. But I have children a...
