URZZZZ I know Barrow is pretty forgettable because he contributes absolutely nothing.

Nah, even defensively he’s improved. He can be frustrating, but if you watch the games back he really should have more assists than he has. Anyway, all about opinions.

windermereROYAL Guess who the forth official is for this one? none other than mister Geoff Eltringham himself.


I sincerely hope there's a tactical plan for one of our staff to bump into him and accidentally land their boot in his face. Unbelievable that the FA/efl have made this decision, he should be nowhere near the championship, let alone our games.

Hound yeah just saw that. WTAF? Surely that'll get changed


I doubt it, but I am sure that Nelson will be wearing his mask, whether he needs it or not.

Hound Gomes seems to like rotating the wingers every game. Harriott, Ejaria, McCleary, Barrow, Aluko and Richards have all had a go out there recently. Not sure whether this is some masterplan of his or he really is keep dropping them every other game

Whatever it is I don't like it.

I know I'm harsh on Barrow and he does work harder than he used to but he just isn't very good and his attitude still isn't amazing. IMO he's had about 2 good games in about 14 months, you notice most of his goals last season came up to about December 2017, and since the start of 2018 he's been as poor as the others, if not even worse

And that's what the main thing is with him, people completely overrate him and I think it might have gone to his head. However, and I would always say this, he's still a good option off the bench, you notice the only goal he's scored this season has been Stoke which was off the bench

That is genuinely one of the weirdest threads I've read. Nearly everything they've quoted on the Reading site says they are a good side, and it will be a very tough game - with a bit of self-deprecating about some poor predictions. And their response is just a load of abuse. Very odd, clearly a huge northern chip on shoulder thing

The bit I liked most was when they referred to Reading as not a football town.

What does constitute a football town? I guess it has to be Northern as that is where all the 'real' clubs and supporters are :roll:

It is strange how they've looked at our matchwatch thread first before making any comments on it themselves. I got sucked in and read the lot .....They really still think they are a sleeping giant in english football. A typical northern club who has been around for years but done oxf*rd all since wining FA Cup 1925. They are a bit thick aren't they, maybe the sulphar from the steel works stunted their development.
They stole the nickname 'blades' off their arch rivals Sheff weds, says enough about the club to me.

I dont think they understand that we dont expect to get anything up there so anything is a bonus.

They do play some nice stuff tbf. Just you look at some of the names on the team sheet and you wouldn't expect them to.

Need to break the habit of a lifetime and get at the keeper. Having watched them against Villa he could easily crumble under pressure. Doubt it will happen though.

Hopefully it's a good soccer game. Although sadly I won't be there as I'll be watching Chelsea, Spurs or Arsenal.

Always considered that as being there is fcuk all else to do other than watch the local football team. See Sunderland for reference

"they've never done f[u]ck all."

So they're saying we have done f[u]ck all?

Seem to remember one season where we won the league over them. Can anyone else remember that season?

Its a trait of old clubs who used to be successful back in the 1920's, all their supporters are like this. They have been brought up being told that their club is this huge superpower of English football when in fact they are pretty insignificant in this day and age.

I'm loving these guys view of reading.......LOL at the chavvie suburbs?? Like what, Pangbourne, Theale and Sonning.
Compared to the glamorous suburbs of some northern former factory town where a scene from mad max would not be far off as a documentary, yeah right.

Prolly true, but it doesn't sit well with me any time I hear it. They came up last year, and did well. And, they are doing well again this year. And they haven't spent billions doing it.

Yep, seen them play a couple times, and they weren't what I'd been told/expecting.

Bit disappointed we haven't been called tinpot yet, that's usually the first insult we get

They're just a bit uneducated bless them, it's not their fault they've had to spend their whole life in that dump

And all the wannabee "hardnuts" are 14 year-olds from the chavvier suburbs, who like referring to their local area as "da ghetto, innit?". It's not Compton FFS, it's Berkshire.

err what?

strange bunch
