Liam Moore “My Captain”

by Oilroyal » 09 Aug 2019 06:01

Have we ever seen such appreciation from our fans toward a team captain before? Social media will have something to do with this but honestly, I cannot remember a time when our fans expressed such genuine pride and appreciation for their captain.

I know we have a thread on Liam Moore, but this thread is, Liam Moore “My Captain” on and off pitch

Good call, the whole team were captains. Does anyone have a list of ex captains they could post?

Our fans really are a bit thick aren't they.

Why can't OP do his own research and find out. You literally just need to go on Wikipedia.

Not to piss on your chips mate but there isnt a dedicated wiki page that lists all previous Reading captains. This being a fan site it is highly likely someone has a doc of all captains. Why do the research when it has probably been done?

In the 1950s, early 60s we really rated Bomber Beeves. Renown for his penalty taking. No positioning of where the ball was to go, just blast it. I remember third round of cup away at Notts Forest 1960 I think and we won a penalty. Ray like he always did went back to near the centre circle to start his run up and bang it was saved. The Forest fan stood by us said in a condecending manner "I new he would fail when I saw his run up". Arsehole. and a cold January journey home in on the floor of a van in the the snow.

Yes I know there isn't but why don't people these days go out and find things out for themselves? It isn't hard to go on wiki and look at past seasons and look at the captain entry of it.

That's just lazy.

Strap will have a spreadsheet listing every captain since 1871. He’ll know whether they won the toss and if so whether they chose kickoff or ends (he’ll only know which end they chose for post war league matches).
He’ll probably know who took the armband if thecaptain didn’t complete a game.
He’ll definitely know what % win rate each captain had.

Hard? No. Time consuming? Very. Again I ask why do research that has proBably been done by one of the many stat/history buffs on here. Asking for information is not a weakness. Its intelligent.

Thats the problem with society today. Rather then do a bit of work yourself you would rather sit there in your PJs whilst others do it.
