Re: Which nobber do you argue with the most?

Some things are really not funny. Being accused of being a Tory is really really not funny. Makes me laugh how massively over offended people get by being called a ‘Tory’ like they’ve been accused of molesting kids or something exileinleeds is right, it is a serious matter. You might be self employ...

Re: Which nobber do you argue with the most?

Fellow Nobbers annoy me occasionally, but 5 minutes later it's forgotten and i move on, that is unless it's one of the few tedious 'know it alls' with no manners that just wont give it a rest. However, i do laugh disdainfully at Nobbers whose lives revolve around this Forum, the sad ones with no oth...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Post your opinion on a public discussion forum where you're saying something should happen and you make your opinion other people's business and fair game. If you don't want it commented on, keep it private. The hypocrisy of you saying saying people should stop doing something you don't like and th...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

And if you want to discuss hypocrisy, then ask your self how many Reading fans condemn racism but openly target and shout abuse at a red headed player? sing 'where's your caravan' or 'pikey' to a player with long black hair? And how many have sung 'Bobby Zamora the elephant man'? or any of the many...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

The biggest message from black people to white people at the height of the unrest was essentially "Don't just make some meaningless posts and symbols on facebook etc and then just forget about us again without changing anything. Do something, make change happen and don't just think about racis...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I think the players and authorities have made quite clear what the motivation behind taking the knee is, its an honest gesture, not in itself confrontational and anyone arguing differently is either being thick or disingenuous. I agree 100% that it is an honest and peaceful gesture and certainly no...

Re: Reading v Wycombe Wanderers - Match 08 2020-2021 Prediction League

We've only let one in all season, they've only scored one all season, this is football where complacency and foregone conclusions bite you in the arse.
I reckon a couple of quid on a tight Wycombe win might be worth a punt, say 1-2 to Wycombe?

Silver Fox Didn't watch the game but caught the highlights. I just wanted to check in and confirm the rumour I'd heard that we are definitely going up is true?


Not just going up, but breaking the points record.


Well, we already have more points than we did at this stage of the 2005/06 season.

The most charismatic/moronic fan we have or have ever had

I always remember a very drunken Frankie Henry doing a one man pitch invasion at Elm Park at least once every 3 or 4 games. The Police just threw him out and he was back a couple of games later. No bans in those days.

Re: Any player you recall who virtually beat us on their own.

Jermaine Defoe destroyed us For Bournemouth at the end of the 2001 season, we’ll at least for the first half anyway. It took numerous tactical and positional changes to slow him down a touch. I still laugh at that one, there big away day, and they needed to win to make the play offs, and we managed ...

Re: Most underrated/"does a job" player for Reading?

I will go for Gunnarson, Andy Hughes, Chris Makin and John Oster. Gunnarson for me doesn't tick the box because he was highly rated by most fans. Andy Hughes is a good shout, Primarily a central midfielder but at the club he also took on the roles of winger, left back, right back and scape goat. Al...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Rather irrationally it really annoys me when it's quoted that the point at Leicester got us promoted. Not true as a defeat would still have seen us promoted given Leeds failure to beat Stoke at home and Watford losing at home to Millwall http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_1/4819702.st...

Never forget that Asaba scored the goal that got us promoted to the Premier League. Well, Kevin Doyle scored the goal for us in 2006 and Mikel Leigertwood scored the goal in 2012.
