Skyline Wasn't it Jason Lunnon who was christened 'Superfan' by the EP after he (supposedly) got the away support singing at Swindon a few years back. He even got invited to take part in a training session by the club, IIRC, which must have been quite a sight given he was more Jimmy Five-bellies than Jimmy Quinn.


He did the same thing at the following game, wandering up and down the East Stand gangways.

Haven't seen him since.


Remember seeing him walking along the front of the East Stand shaking everyones hand towards the end of the Derby game. (Championship winning game).


He's still there, sat halfway up Y25. Think he was a tiny bit pissed at that Swindon game.

Yup, vouch for that. My AST is linked to his so I sat next to him for almost every away game last season. And he's always there halfway up Y25. Still loyal, and still as f****n noisy as ever!!

Yes! and then after the game he would stand on the Tilehurst Road holding the away scarf open (with opposition name showing) to all the passing motorists. Fu-cking wierd guy that one.

I still remember singing 'Lofty's Got Foot and Mouth' back in 1967.

Does anyone remember Gerry who lived in Norfolk Rd? He would turn up under the clock at 5 to 3 every match day, sometimes in his slippers.

Around that era he was the instigator of many songs and chants. He once made a bugle out of a rolled up hosepipe and garden funnel which was used to great effect.

Farnborough Royal The man who was sitting on the end of his row, about 4 rows from the back of the 1st tier at Bolton this season.

Stood up and ironically clapped Seol on his own when he was warming up, started sing "Seol is shit" repeatedly, then turned to his mate and said "it's ok he can't see me, I could blind fold him with dental floss" :lol:

Then when Bolton scored he got up and was dancing up and down the aisle to I feeLOL good :lol:

A true legend :D

I sit near a young lad with 'Edge' on the back of his shirt. Clearly has an undying love for RFC plus he must buy (but more probably his old man) every bit of clothing from the megastore.
