madreadingfan People on here saying it's a failure after 2 games :lol: always going to be a slow process, like someone said, they're not going to be ultras overnight.

Also, they can't control what everyone is singing who comes into the group, that would be near impossible. Young lads have been chanting at away fans, the organisers aren't exactly going to walk up to them and ask them to stop are they?! I was in there for both games and I just don't think a lot of fans were up for it which is a shame but again the organisers can't control that. Give it time and I'm sure it will grow. You can't give up after 1 bad game.

I thought the South and East complimented each other excellently for the Derby game and kept Derby fans quiet.

Rather than knocking them down, why don't you start encouraging them for a much needed initiative? I certainly didn't hear East stand sing after Bolton scored either.


They implied this is exactly what would be happening yes.

Jagermesiter1871 Are the 3 of you just going to circle jerk each other off whilst wallowing in some weird pride that we have a shit atmosphere and an effort by a group of fans, hasn't thus far turned the madejski into la bombonera? #sad


I don't have any pride about it in fact I find the whole thing quite embarrassing. It would be nice if they were public with there thoughts as to why it was so shit the other day. That is all.

The handjob would be a plus though

Club 1871 isn't for me but this John Smith character has to be one of the saddest fvckers on the whole internet with the way he's obsessed with them. What a tool

They didn't imply, they said it was their objective. There is a difference.

Then they have failed a key objective then? I wanted it to work as much as anyone but it just clearly hasn't. I just can't see how they can rescue it now.

It is only two games in though -> I know you may respond "Yea and it's failed already"............. but my point is that it's still maturing. They raised over £1000 from crowd funding alone, and have the support of the club.

One game was against Bolton at home in front of a poor crowd. Other games will draw more people... some less people.

However, at least some are trying to improve the atmosphere in a way other than moaning on Twatter or HNA?

I did, we made peace and I spoke to the organiser about it. Quite well documented if you do your research.

And they have my full support but they must address the concerns that have arisen? They appear to be going back on what they set out to achieve thats all.

These were exactly the sort of games they were supposed to improve the atmosphere and if anything made it worse

No you got called out for some moronic and personal posts, which you then made up over.

You were opposed to it from the start.

They weren't personal or moronic. If you can't take opposing views then a forum probably isn't the place for you. I spoke at length with an organiser who explained in detail their ideas and I came on board. People are allowed to change their minds in life.

:D :D :D
You can't go round trying to make a point with insulting comments and cyber bullying. Luckily I have a much thicker skin than be able to deal with trolls like you. It's something Club 1871 will need to take into account in the coming weeks when the scrutiny really hits home.

I am almost certain the Reading FC Truth twitter account is a joint venture between John Smith and Old Man Andrews

I don't think we even necessarily have opposed views. I'm not in the 1871 club nor do I absolutely love the idea. I just think its sad to take glee in it's supposed failure.
