Re: Have you ever been attacked at a game?

Took a whack outside the Victoria Ground, Stoke, our first game after Bolton '95. Stupidly was wearing colours and 2 of them block the pavement and 1 took a swing which glanced me, so I clumped 1 of them with my radio I had bought the day before in Argos which shattered on impact, allowing me to gai...

Re: If ever you think Reading fans are bad...

I still maintain we are always too hard on ourselves. Granted as a whole we aren't the most passionate lot (Saturday in particular wasn't brilliant), but we were voted the noisest / livliest fans to visit Vicarage Road last season (4-4-2), so there is the odd glimmer of noise. However, I think the b...

Re: Top 3 Reading players EVER

1. Shaka - Favourite player ever. top bloke 2. Super Simon Osborn - still convinced if he hadn't got crooked midway through season 94/95, we may well have won the title and not had the heartache of Bolton. Sheer quality 3. Kevin Doyle - the only one of the 05 - 07 side to really "make a name fo...

Re: We love you Feds!

He does do it quite often though, thats the problem He didnt seem so apolgetic and humble on the radio after either. Saying how it wasnt so much his fault as just an accident and he thought it was a good ball right onto Kebes feet. Last time he cocked up he blamed everyone infront of for the 3 soft...

Re: REFWATCH: Portsmouth v Reading

No cautions, no adverse comments on HobNob. Did he have a good game? Thought he was one of the best refs I have seen for a while. Blotted his copybook late on mind when he gave us a free kick right out on the touchline after their fullback had bodily shoved Jimmy into the stand only for the ball to...

Re: Back from the game - S****horpe.

We should really be playing 4-4-2 at home. If we had Long/Church or Long/Rasiak up front I'm sure we can attack better. Maybe use 4-5-1 against strong opposition, but against Scunthorpe, I'd like to see us control the game. It's not a defensive formation, mate. It is when 2 of your 3 central midfie...

Re: Back from the game, QPR

All these quotes about it being a stonewall pen. From where I sit in the North, Hill definately played the ball out for a corner. I am very vocal in my appeals for pens / free kicks etc and such was my certainty it was not a penalty, I didn't mutter a word (not that I am moaning mind). Players (genu...

Re: Your first game

First game was home to Donny in December 1971, aged 5. A convincing 3-1 with Dick Habbin amongst the scorers. On a similar theme, first ever away game was at Aldershot in April 1978, a 1-1 draw. However 'away' actually meant walking 10 minutes through Manor park to get to the Rec as I had by then mo...

Re: colours to the mast NOW

The 8 days between March 9th and March 16th incl will have a significant bearing whether we play Portsmouth or Rochdale next year, but alas I voted no, the damage has already been done.

Re: Archie's penalty - A font of football widsom

Have to agree with Floyd, always thought Archie was very over rated, but never voiced those opinions as he always seemed to be the Southbank darling. Saying that, Archie was responsible for 2 of my favourite ever Elm Park days, his hat trick against Swindon on a very warm April day making McMahon lo...

"I don't blame Harper at all for that goal. Not even a tiny percentage of blame for it." Whilst the goal in the end didn't really matter, it was a blot on the landscape of an otherwise excellant performance. Exactly why did Harper, when he had space in front of him and time on the ball dec...

Re: Worst three matches watched

1. Agree with all the sentiments regarding the Walsall cup game. Only time I can ever recall wishing the other team to score as we approached 90 minutes so as to avoid 30 more minutes of pure boredom. To cap it all, we went out and I found that some scrot had done over my car in the meantime. Couple...
