Re: Chris Gunter song courtesy of Wales

To be fair, the "Barry Horns" wanted something that would work well for a brass section. The Ghostbusters theme is very brass oriented, popular, and catchy. It works well for them, but it'll never do for Reading fans.

Re: Loan Watch 2016/17

Bond made his debut today for Gillingham, away at Shrewsbury. BBC website credits him with making 2 excellent saves in the first half, to keep Gillingham in the game after they went 2-0 down. They came back to win 2-3.

Rob Dickie scored the opener at Cheltenham, as they beat CRewe 2-0.

Reading to Basingstoke electrification is part of the Electric Spine project.

Whilst it is supposed to be completed by 2019, there is no plan in place to achieve this.

It is traditional to greet a new poster with a shower of abuse, but in light of the exceptional thought and effort you have put in, can I say "Welcome", and I hope you take the time to post again in future.

Re: BTFG Middlesborough

I cheered when Piazon was substituted, thinking that Ola John would be an improvement. He wasn't. He seems to be a one-trick pony. He can do a mazy run then take on three men (and lose possession every time). What he can't do is a much longer list, but it includes marking opponents, tackling, and lo...

Re: Dellor moaning about Vydra again!!!

1) Dellor is entirely correct in his justified criticism of Vydra. 2) I really don't care if Vydra is mentally shot. He needs to be kept well away from the rest of the squad until his loan expires. Then pat him on the head, ruffle his hair, and point him in the direction of Watford. 3) I like Dellor...
