Re: Rival Watch

What on earth didn’t the Birmingham fans go on to become then ? Politicians ? There weren't any. We had Millwall, Wolves and Coventry and the usual glory supporters, but I don't remember there being any Brum supporters. Must have been some Albion fans though? Don't mind the Baggies fans for the one...

Re: Rival Watch

Agreed. Every other team has at least one loathsome element to them. Villa for example, not only have some of the most cnutish, entitled fans in England, they have that ghastly pinched faced racist as an assistant manager. Imagine what it was like growing up in Warwickshire with Villa fans being in...

They are certainly the least offensive team in the play-offs. I'm with you. West Brom up hopefully. Shame they sacked their manager. Agreed.

Re: The League of 4

It’s a unique madness of football fans that they see a rival who has won 8 of 43 games and 1 of the last 5 and for some reason decides they could win 2 out of 3 all of a sudden If we had beaten them , rather than drawing twice this season. Then we wouldn't even need to be discussing this. As would ...

Re: Gomes after 10 League Games

Don’t think the appointment was a punt at all. Just because fans rely on Wikipedia for their partial info doesn’t mean the club did. His Cv was wrongly seen by some as showing a guy who couldn’t stick at a Job for more than a handful of games and hadhad no success. That was a very unfair interpreta...

Re: RIP Johnny Walker

It's a shame he never met my granddad, his name was Jack Daniels, but wasn't from the Reading side of the family, lived up north. They could have gone out on the piss together.

Re: Rumour - Ruben Semedo

alfie9 Gomes knows how to turn this around

We need someone to come in and relentlessly bully the other players until they get their act together


So like Martin Allen sort of thing? Or Mourinho? No one likes to be bullied. The fear can only last for so long.

Re: BFTG United (A)

There are a few similarities between the start of McDermott’s first stint and Gomes’ handful of games. Spirited performances in the league with exception of one stinker (Plymouth for BMcD and Swansea for JG), and then a very promising performance against one of the best teams in the country. Let’s ...

Re: Ex Players

I saw Kolkata on the TV when I was at the airport waiting to leave India. Really weird, first to see Coppell managing, and his team not doing too well, and then to notice that Bikey was also playing. John Gregory won the league, that's how ridiculous the Indian league is. Teddy Sheringham was also o...

The fixture list really hasn't been kind Derby home, who are usually top 6 Forest away, who have spent a load Bolton home, who are joint top of the league, let's not forget Blackburn away, promoted side on a high, unbeaten And now Villa away Yes, we should be complaining to the league that we keep ...

Re: Liam Moore Hypocrite or Hero?

Let's find one fan who works for a company, and wouldn't leave that company to get paid a load more money. Me. More relevant would be someone who's signed a fixed term contract.

Re: Paul Clement to Napoli?

Well, he got us the 8 points needed for survival. I don't think he's necessarily that good a manager and he has to know if he walks out on Reading after a few months to suck up with Ancellotti then no one would ever hire him again.
