Re: Worried Supporters.

You're not a football club owner are you ? ... You would think it would carry some weight, but then, the rich owners went for Leicester and Derby, Middlesboro and others. Maybe us being close to London doesn't make any difference whatsoever. What are the factors that these investors are really look...

Re: Sack The Manager... REALLY?!

I am not a Mc Dermott fan and I fear that he is more likely to take us to Swindon than Stoke. I think his day has come and gone and his notable lack of success since the heady days of 2012 supports that assumption. However, it would be unfair and counter productive to fire him before we see just wha...

Re: MATCH THREAD: Huddersfield (A) sponsored by a Nakhi Wells goal

Personally, l feel that the unwinnable Cup is nothing more than a distraction. Poor performance tonight, we have the resources to do so much better. I have never been a McDermott fan and nothing l have seen this time round has changed that. League results and respectability please, or can we have a ...

Re: COMING SOON : Walsall (h) - FA CUP 4th Round - 30 Jan 20

Well that's a potential banana skin well negotiated. Are standards in League 1 falling away or is it just that Walsall are flattered by their lofty position? Today's result was a good one, if only because it will shut their arrogant and deluded fans up for a while.

if we can nudge this one it will mean so much more than 3 points. Difficult to tell from here, but commitment seems to be there in plenty.

Re: Rumour : Orlando Sa

Imagine being Orlando Sa; do 6 months in a nice city, picking up a fat pay packet and signing on fee. The bloke must be laughing. I expect he'll bang in a reasonable amount in the Greek league too I have lived in Athens and with a few exceptions, it is an unmitigated shitehole. AEK are also a way d...

Re: Opposition fans before the game

Barcelona, sorry Brighton, really have a strangely over inflated opinion of themselves these days don't they. Looking forward to their big day out. They used to say West Ham come down quicker than the Christmas lights.....don't think Brighton will be even top six by May. Distinctly average. Our two...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

The Bourne End branch is limited to two coach operation due to the configuration of Bourne End station. The 3 car 150/0s provide 239 seats for a 3 coach unit. This gives the flexibility to strengthen weekend peak services in Devon and Cornwall, so no chance of a split. A return to full time Turbo op...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

As a former guard, let me jump in here. The Basingstoke service is in the hands of the 2 Class 150/0 3 car units. Built in 1984, these are now employed as a short to medium term, pre electrification solution for chronic rolling stock shortages. With a smart crew, station stops can be minimalised, bu...

Re: Clarke to sunderland?

Oilroyal
Libertine Someday Clarke will leave...but it will be someplace much farther up the food chain than Sunderland. And part of that process will be getting Reading to the PL to stay.


100% this.


it will take more than Clarke's management to establish RFC as a force in the Premiership. Investment is vital.
