From Despair To Where? Surely we could all identify someone we don't recognise when they're wearing a hoodie and sat in the back seat of a car adjacent to us in stationary traffic.

Granted the wifi excuses are a bit weak but this is getting beyond obsession territory, OMA.


It's a thread designed to discuss local journalists. What would you like me to do other than comment in the local journalists?

Anthony is a questionable journo but in this case I’ll come to his defence.

If I thought I saw something like that and have no idea who it is, and if it’s no one after he reports this then he gets taken the piss out of.

He decides it’s not really enough to say anything and as Miazga is a relatively unknown player I certainly hadn’t a clue what he looked like even though I did know who he was. Again, he gets taken the piss out of.

Where can he win here exactly?

There's discussion and there's nitpicking. If you're going to criticise, don't go all in like he's fcuked your dog on every minor thing. Not having reliable WiFi or 4G is a problem, not recognising a relatively unknown Chelsea U23 player who was not previously on our radar and we hadn't been linked with, really isn't that big a deal and maybe acknowledge that the quality of his output is directly linked to the quality of resources at his disposal.

Maybe you can do any better but, to be honest, like our local journos, a lot of your content doesn't hold up to a great deal of scrutiny either.

You're missing the point entirely. It's not the fact he didn't recognise the player it's that I believe he has completely made it up in the first place. If you wish to believe him that's fine.

Isn't life too short to be worrying about things like that?

Yeah, I missed the point because I'm not sure there is one beyond your desire to overscrutinise him.

And yes I believe him because I see no benefit to him making it up, he looks hapless and disconnected either way.

I want change and I want better local journalists reporting on the club I support, nothing wrong with that.


Genuine question, no aggro intended.

Do you buy the Chronicle or pick up the Mirror? Failing that, do you bother to click on any of the ads on either website.

If so, good, you're trying your best to help.

If not you're part of the problem as to just why journalism standards are slipping, because there's next to no money in it.

Repeated this argument constantly but the demands and resources available to today's journalists are a world away from even 10 years ago when Charles and others were starting. It's a shame and of course individuals could improve but it's easier said than done in today's newsrooms, most of which are a small cluster of computers where people turn around wire copy and make stories off social media content and press releases.

Poor Smudger hasn't got a smart phone apparently. I knew the Reading Chronicle wages were low but I didn't think they would be so low Smudge has to use a Nokia 3210.

Jonathan Low covered deadline day much better than any other reporter, he’s not been the greatest journo over the past 2 years but credits where it’s due

There need to be changes at radio berks, from what I heard in the car heading back south. I actually thought we did ok today against a decent Villa side with several quality players, and I'd have taken a point at start of play.

Dellor and Williams are so negative and calling one fan an idiot is well out of order.

I hope the fan complains.

Agree with you sir. Dellor openly called someone who'd bothered to text in an idiot twice after the game on Saturday. Radio Berks should think themselves lucky anyone bothers to communicate with them at all so should be a bit nicer to those who do even if they disagree. Ady and Tim have been in a huff since their mate Parky didn't get the Reading job. Tim has been on the verge of xenophobia every week RE: Gomes.

+1 I already feel miserable after some games, I don't want to listen to more negativity.

That, or he takes pleasure in reminding everyone.

We don't want to just stick our head in the sand and pretend everything is hunky-dory but the constant negativity can't be helping peoples feelings towards the team and could be a factor* in dropping attendances.

*admittedly probably a minor factor, but it can't help.

Dellor does do one thing that is positive though. He brings all the Reading supporters together in a united front against him, we are all pretty much on the same page when it comes to Tim Dellor. Awful cretin.

Love it. Two people in Gooding and Williams who played in that great McGhee team. A team who played better football than Gomes has managed to produce so far. They know what effective football is and what isn't.

You can only talk about the game that has gone on before. If it's been a poor result then they are going to talk about it.

Xenophobia accusations are ridiculous.
