Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (h) sponsored by Andy Legg & Jason Bowen

Snowball We had 19 shots, 6 on target playing 50 minutes with ten men
against a side which made the play-offs.

This game made me feel good about next season.


Really a 1-4 spineless home defeat gives you cause for hope. Are u for real?

Re: MATCHWATCH : Swansea City (h) sponsored by Andy Legg & Jason Bowen

What is wrong with you lot? That was a very good Swansea side and we were a man short. Apart from the first few minutes, I thought we were great Olise is a fantastic player Yeah fantastic. What about the past 445 minutes in which we have failed to score at home, penalties aside. Truly woeful.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by no fans allowed

And Hull city take the lead. Good Luton win. Charlton win again. Boro appoint Warnock. Wigan in form. Agree it's unlikely, but not impossible. We will verly likely finish 55 plus points, but its natural for Reading fans to get nervous, i remember Blackburn going down on 54 points, but can`t remeber...

Re: BFIFollow

Totally agree with Zip’s first 2 sentences about having some of the division most gifted players but that we overplay. The problem is we don’t have intelligent players, who know when to twist and when to stick. There are times to play but there are times to move the ball on quicker and 2-3 times yes...

Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

Norwich would rightly be annoyed if that ghost goal had actually been given against them, but it wasn’t We were playing Watford weren’t we ? Couple of poor reffing decisions at White Hart Lane I recall but not too sure if they were in the same match. Penalty against us for handball when the call si...

Zip McIntyre was unlucky to not get a new contract. He did ok. We

iirc McIntyre was diabolical played upfront, but when he moved back a bit actually did quite well.


Small world, my next door neighbour in Woodley used to babysit Jim McIntyre when he was a “wee bairn” in Dumbarton.

Re: BFTG Sheff U FB

Agree with every sentence bar one. There were 3 subs made in first half of ET, Pele, Macca and one for them. Alas it was one of the few things Friend got right last night. Ref’s performance was best summed up by Bowen when asked if he’d had a poor game, his reply was something along the lines of “Ne...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Wigan Athletic (h) sponsored by Nicky Forster

I think you missed the word “away” out when you talk about Bowen’s results records in such a positive manner. Couldn’t agree more about C1871 not covering themselves in glory last night, although it was a tough ask after our worst home performance in 2 years since Ipswich. However, Bowen’s home reco...

Based on 2WW&1WC’s analogy of other home towns, I’d get to choose between Aldershot or Wolves - what a choice. My Dad was a STH at Craven Cottage, so they are a possible Never disliked Saints, but that’s more to do with my shared loathing of Pompey rather than actually liking them. Shout out to ...

I never thought I’d see a worse keeper than Howie. This lad has driven a horse and coaches through that accolade. Now watch Wolves draw Oxford.
