A couple of kids behind me were trying to give the Do Do Do - Adam Federici (to the tune of the Black Lace "Conga" abomination) a good go. No one else was joining in though. I HATE those b*stard kids. Especially the ugly blonde one who takes his top off after we score so we can all see wh...

SpaceCruiser Oh Lord save me, they actually think we don't own the stadium. :roll:

What is company A? I think they made that one up, they seem desperate to think that we are also tenants. :roll:


I always actually thought Mr Mad owned the stadium and we were just tenants!! :oops: :oops:

I really think we must be the only prem team who ISN'T a threat from corners and set pieces. You can tell how much work teams like Chelsea, Bolton etc.. put into their corners. But obviously not us. I sh*t myself when our opposition get corners and get no high at all when we get one. Says loads really

Bloody Corners!!

What the f*ck is wrong with our corner taking?? Do we not bother with them in training or something?? Blakey had loads today, and if (on the rare occasions) they beat the first man, they were weakly chipped-in with no bend. Exactly how are we supposed to score from them?? It's lazy, weak, and will c...

Re: Robin Friday

You write as though you knew him very well! If that is the case, you've missed out the bits of how he would stand around for hours talking to the fans, signing autographs and generally being an all round top bloke supporters could very easily relate to. I believe Liverpulians would have called him ...

Re: Robin Friday

Mentioned often around these boards, and by the looks rightly so. A legend at Reading. Being one who is more young than old, I wasn't lucky enough to see him in action or know how he played. Just wondering, what did actually make THE Robin Friday so special? Is he comparable to the current Reading ...

AP, H&P & Muskrat:

Am I missing something when you talk about Sonko blatantly giving away a penalty??

It was a disgraceful dive by Macarthy

(although admittedly at the time I thought it looked a blatant pen.....but then that's why i'm a fan and not a ref. Good decision by Poll)

Slow pace? I certainly don't want it to get any quicker! Having watched Coventry v Colchester last night, it looked like they were walking round the pitch Ok, slow-paced may have been the wrong word. But you have to admit it has been really frustrating this season when the other team has been timew...

In which case the answer is to not stop play when two balls appear and let the ball-boys/girls onto the pitch to retrieve them. At times it was frustrating last season as play was stopped because a ball had drifted 1yd onto the pitch about 40yd from any play. Pathetic That would also negate fans th...

BG has more tackling ability, airial ability, defensive nouse and shooting ability than Harps and Sidders put together. Criminally underused in midfield. We look so much more assured and solid when he comes into the middle I also don't think he's as slow as he seems. He makes everything look slow, b...

I believe that when it was last allowed clubs took advantage of it too much, the opposition complained about the ditribution of balls to them. I certainly remember a good few instances of the referee asking the club officials to remove the balls due to multiple ones being on the pitch at throw-in a...

We just never seem to want to shoot outside the box, we very rarely try our luck from distance and with players like Seol, Sidwell, Shorey etc who are often in positions where they can shoot and are all capable of doing it, we really need to start doing this more often, after all, you can't score w...

cmonurz What the highlights do do justice is how we stood off Arsenal and let them play, no moreso than in the very first minute.


But that's Reading all over! We are terrible for standing off people, much as it seems to have mostly worked up to sunday

Must agree some of Mersons remarks made me cringe but I do think it is great sportsmanship to applaud an opposing teams goal.

Bang on JMW, I want us to win, I am a crazy Reading fan, I thought at 2-0 we could get a point (!) but we were treated to a footballing lesson today, a joy to watch someone actually play class football and score good goals with no doubt about them, if I am supposed to moan, be negative and hate Ars...
