Re: COMING SOON : West Bromwich Albion (h) FA Cup Round 5

The BBC stats for Everton v West Brom. Everton / WBA Possession 76% / 24% Shots 33 / 5 (33 is not a typo) On target 6 / 1 Corners 14 / 1 Result 0 / 1 If the West Brom. goal has such a charmed life, how the hell are we going to score?

Re: Are you a fan or a customer?

Assuming that fan is an abbreviation of fanatic and the definition of that is "someone who has an obsessive interest in a particular activity", we can be both. You could be a fan of a pop-star but not go to see them perform live on stage, but if you went you would be a customer. It seems t...

Re: Reading FC (Holdings) accounts 2014/15

And im still there buying my season tickets like i have for the past 17 years whilst witnessing some of the dross w...

Re: How impressed are you with BMcD's return to the club?

Clarke sacked = 1 point off the play-offs McDermott in charge = 13 points off the play-offs This is what happens when you employee a scout to do a managers job. He really does need to go as he is not very good you know. He is living on a legacy of a few wins before he was sacked for being a failure...

Re: January Deadline Day thread.

Latest reports are Pardew has said Speroni is staying at Palace and another keeper may be going out on loan "to get him up to speed". Can't see Mccarthy coming here, after all if it is him, it appears he wasn't up to speed when he left here!

Re: Rumour - Jake Cooper

I hope there is less truth in this than "Clarke is now the Fulham manager" quoted as fact by numerous papers and radio stations! Paper and radio talk is often wrong, especially when they make it up.

Re: Gunts on his way?

I see that Brian wants Chris Gunter to sign a new contract also the player himself wants to stay at Reading. If that happens there will be many unhappy fans, of which I will not be one. Why do so many fans dislike him, when manager after manager plays him so much? If he is s bad as some on these pag...

Re: Charlie Watts - great journo

Neither Watts or Fordham are a patch on Roger Ware! I believe he was a Reading supporter and wrote for the Reading Chronicle or was it the Berkshire Chronicle still at the time? Anyone else remember him? I remember the name. Late 70s / early 80s? Think it would have been more like the mid to late 6...

Re: Charlie Watts - great journo

Who was the guy responsible for the Chronicle's RFC Hooligan story which contributed towards the papers demise? Whatever happened to him? But yeh CW seems decent, fair play to the OP here for calling it out too. Maurice O'Brien was the name. Wasn't he also a Gooners Fan? He did not cause the papers...

Re: RUMOUR - Paolo Hurtado

I am sure the owners and in particular Pieroj are having a lot of influence on whom we buy and sell. I am certain I read somewhere that Brian had no say in the sale of Blackman, it was forced on him. That was a quote from Brian himself! You are right Brian had no say in Blackman's departure. Blackm...

Re: RUMOUR - Paolo Hurtado

I'm guessing we didn't spend too much on English lessons for Hurtado. The players earn enough in wages to pay for their own lessons, don't they? If a player really wants to make a go of it in another country surely they would do all they could to make their stay a bit more comfortable for themselve...

Re: Orlando Vs Kermorgant

2 months in the job and Brian has already forced out our two best players. Shambles I assume you mean Blackman and Sa. Blackman was already on his way out before BM arrived. He refused to accept the contracts offered to him by the club for several months the board decided to get money for him while...

Re: Your General Feeling Towards The Club?

Very negative , I feel the club has taken a backward step reappointing McDermott. I had high hopes but the new signings and sticking with our number 9 baffles me . I have been supporting Reading for over 50 years now and never have I felt so negative about the team . Selling Sa has not made my feel...

Re: George Evans

Confirmed on Reading Fc's website, Evans has signed a three and half year deal. BM saw him while scouting for Arsenal, so it seems as though it is a player he wanted. No mention of a fee, though.

Elm Park was where we could watch the best team in the world, (according to us Biscuitmen fans anyway). Now we are at the Mad Stad. we can watch the best team in much more comfort, getting to the stadium and parking is a bit easier as well, crowds are bigger, the class of football has been raised in...

Re: Something wrong at the club?

There are too many loan players. The players that were brought into the club during the summer, may be good as individuals but do not appear to be team players. The rebuilding needs to start now for next year. Bring back Samual for a start, as we need players who want to play for the club and not ju...
