Winston Biscuit Bit early to start this one I know

Not at all, page one in.

I'm sure we'll all still be here when it comes round.

Re: Carlisle (A)

Dirk Gently Plus one more, but I'll be in the home area. Not going to miss a chance to watch from the last proper standing paddock at an English League ground.

Nice - I think I'd do the same if I were embarking on the 600 mile round trip.

Re: Apple Watch, Rose Gold, Nearly New - £325

Mrs can’t wear it at work as she’s a nurse, and then doesn’t think to wear it at home. It’s a shame because it’s a decent bit of kit. Bought for £399 6 months ago. Selling for just £325. Collect from RG2 or I can pop by if you’re local. PM’s welcome. * White strap and wireless charger included. Did...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

I was at the Rangers-Ross County game last Wednesday. The Rangers equivalent behind the goal were highly impressive: singing for the whole ninety minutes; almost no repetition of songs; were loud throughout the game and the events on the pitch had no impact on their support. Would be good if Club 1...

Re: STAR Exiles - Overview

From the STAR website: https://gcdnb.pbrd.co/images/wqL7xuunq1To.png?o=1 I wonder how many of these proposed branches in 2011 ever came to pass. Perhaps this was actually the golden age of the exile club - with increasing social media it could be distant royals are organising themselves via social m...

Re: Wanted - ROVERS (a)

Yes you're right - not on sale yet, and the fixture may yet be postponed due to international commitments.

Are you asking others to purchase tickets on your behalf, or is this just a first in the queue placeholder for any spares?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Portsmouth (a)

It's weird that, outside of local rivals, it's fans of clubs like Derby and Portsmouth, who've both been within days of liquidation, who are enjoying our plight/wishing the worst for us. Yeah, it's all banter (ugh) at the end of the day, but there are some people you think would know better. It's e...

Royals and Racers
Royals and Racers Next up for the Royals is an away fixture against the Championship leaders Charlton this Sunday February 18th. The match is being played at the Oakwood ground in Crayford KO 2pm.

Match is live on the FA player.

The Penny Farthing is a smashing micro pub nearby, if anyone is making the journey.

Re: TV rights

In my day you'd go down to the pub to watch it, the price of beer typically being cheaper than a monthly subscription.

Not sure that still holds.

Re: How early have you taken your children to a game and it be ok?

Depends what you want I guess. Do these far flung second and third generation royals get to many games, or is it more of a follow online kind of arrangement? I just think if you're planning to go to games then logistically, practically, financially, common sensically it just has to be local otherwis...

Re: Carlisle (A)

I've been there once, for a random game, as a mate was driving up to watch Carlisle City play*. It's an odd ground, but the strangest thing to me was that the home end wasn't very popular. Fans seemed to prefer the uncovered side terrace. I liked it, but I can't imagine the view is great from the e...

Think i'll stick to 'Stow for a few more years yet based on the advice. There is a strong possibility i just end up going to Leyton Orient games with her instead and become a Leyton fan. Appreciate this is sacrilege on a football forum. I think that absolutely makes sense and plan to do the same (C...

Oxford forum saying 130 tickets were refunded in the home ends due to being on the Reading FC database. Anyone able to verify this? That post seems to be the only source of that information.
