Somewhere I have the lyrics to an ancient Reading FC song from the early Elm Park days which has lyrics about the biscuitmen being bright and gay as in the old less common nowadays meaning of the word.

I've been thinking about this a lot in recent days and am working on variations on:

*various claps* "READING!"

Will report back when I have a few options.

Correct.

However, any chant with the word gay in is probably best avoided as it may be taken the wrong way by some of those in attendance, Similar to the Crystal Palace message board kicking off about the "racist" chant of "sh1t on the floor" chanted by Reading fans at Selhurst Park towards one of their players who went down injured and happened to be black. Thankfully some Palace fans who have a wider breadth of footballing supporting knowledge put them straight and explained it was a common chant sung by most fans at the opposition players when they go down regardless of the players ethnicity.

I remember Watford fans being upset at us singing that about Mariappa during the match when we scored the ghost goal.

Yes, I was there and clearly remember the move, the style, the shimmy, the dummy that found the space, and the ball hitting the back of the net.

This goal and the Robin Friday ‘that goal’ goal against Tranmere are my top 2 most memorable Reading FC goals ever.

I'm trying to work in some reference to either "Top of the League" or "We are going up". Will keep at it.
