Asking AI about Reading FC

by Reading4eva » 10 Jun 2024 14:04

He seems to be popular and seems to be collecting information together to help some MP's. Asked about Reading and he started talking about an independent regulator and protecting the club. Was very interesting to be fair...

Thought I'd ask AI a question

You
Is Dai Yongge a trustworthy person?
Copilot
As an AI language model, I don’t have personal opinions, but I can provide information based on available data. Dai Yongge, the owner of Reading Football Club, has been involved in various business ventures. However, trustworthiness can be subjective and depends on individual perspectives. If you’re considering a business transaction with him, I recommend conducting thorough research and due diligence to make an informed decision.

Only interesting thing about AI is watching it hallucinate.

I asked three LLMs (ChatGPT, Gemini, and Claude) to select their all-time Reading FC XI. They all selected Jimmy Quinn on the right wing, which is odd. The only other player they all selected was Murty.

ChatGPT and Claude selected basically sensible teams with a couple of odd picks. They both picked Adie Williams at centre back. Claude partnered him with Liam Moore, while ChatGPT partnered him with Michael Morrison. Claude also selected Beerens up front.

Google Gemini on the other hand selected a truly bizarre team:
Goalkeeper:

Larry Scott: A true legend between the sticks for Reading, holding the club record for most clean sheets.

Defense:

Graeme Murty: A dependable right-back who captained the record-breaking 1985/86 team.
Alex Pearce: A strong and commanding center-back who led the backline during Reading's Premier League years.
Ian Ure: A rock at center-back, known for his aerial prowess.
Giles Gannon: A consistent left-back with a good engine for getting up and down the flank.

Midfield:

Jimmy Quinn: A creative midfielder with an eye for goal, Reading's all-time leading scorer.
John Madejski: The club's former chairman who was also a talented and influential midfielder in his playing days. (This is a slightly sentimental pick, but his contribution to the club's history is undeniable).
Jason Roberts: A dynamic and powerful box-to-box midfielder who thrived during Reading's Premier League spell.
Leroy Lita: A tricky and pacey winger who provided a constant threat down the right.

Forwards:

Kevin Doyle: A clinical finisher with a knack for scoring important goals.
Ivor Powell: Reading's top scorer before Jimmy Quinn, known for his powerful finishing.


Four completely fictional players, three in the wrong position, a completely fabricated playing career for Madejski, and lots of details incorrect. Only Doyle and Pearce's descriptions contain no objective errors.

Fwiw, and slightly tangenital, when a mate used AI to make some comic book style versions of a few of us, he input descriptions of us, what we like, what we do, etc, the AI software he used always put me in a Reading shirt that was on fire. Make of that what you will!

Looking deeper at this. Ivor Powell and Ian Ure were real players, just none of them played for us. Giles Gannon doesn't appear to be a real person. Larry Scott could refer to a number of people, but none were footballers.

Would've been interesting to see Jason Roberts and John Madejski play central midfield for us. :lol:

Heres my Google Gemini Attempt...

Choosing an all-time Reading FC XI! Here's a possible lineup considering iconic players from different eras:

Formation: 4-4-2 (This is a common formation Reading has used throughout history, but feel free to imagine a different approach)

Goalkeeper: Shaka Hislop (Charismatic and skilled shot-stopper)
Defense: Graeme Murty (Solid and dependable right-back), Alex Pearce (Leader and consistent performer), Ívar Ingimarsson (Rock at the back during the Premier League years), Nicky Shorey (Attacking threat from left-back)
Midfield: John Madejski (Club legend and influential captain), Jim Whitley (Creative midfielder), Gylfi Sigurðsson (Technical and dangerous playmaker), Jobi McAnuff (Versatile and reliable)
Forwards: Kevin Doyle (Reading's most capped international and prolific scorer), Shane Long (Pacey and clinical finisher)
This team offers a blend of experience and flair. Hislop brings experience in goal, while the defense is a mix of strength (Pearce, Ingimarsson) and attacking intent (Murty, Shorey). The midfield has a true leader in Madejski, creativity from Whitley and Sigurðsson, and McAnuff's versatility provides balance. Up front, Doyle's experience and goalscoring combine well with Long's pace and finishing.

Here are some other players who could be strong contenders for the all-time XI:

Goalkeeper: Marcus Hahnemann (Another popular choice)
Defenders: Phil Parkinson (Loyal servant to the club), Andy Yiadom (Reliable defender), Omar Richards (Exciting young talent)
Midfielders: Steve Sidwell (Composed and experienced), Jimmy Kébé (Skillful and dynamic), Andy Rinomhota (Promising youngster)
Forwards: Adam Le Fondre (Prolific goalscorer), Leroy Lita (Powerful striker)
Ultimately, the best Reading FC XI depends on personal preference and what qualities you value most. There's a rich history of talented players to choose from!

:lol: It appears some players have been dropped but John Madejski just was too good. Also welcome to the club Jim Whitley. Some believe they even named the Whitley Whiff after his inspirational performance in the 5-1 win against Arsenal in 1992...

Even better, my early 00's side went on a dramatic FA Cup run it appears :lol:

As Tilehurst Terriers FC was a relatively short-lived club, selecting an all-time XI is quite straightforward. Here's a potential lineup:

Formation: 4-4-2 (This was a common formation during their era)

Goalkeeper: Fred Hopkins (Key player in their cup run)
Defense: Jimmy Reading (Reliable defender), Jack Warner (Another dependable full-back), Charlie Webb (Strong center-half), Bert Shepherd (Solid defender)
Midfield: Bob Loader (Winger with a good goalscoring record), George Getgood (Creative midfielder), Harry Allen (Combative midfielder), Jimmy Hughes (Speedy winger)
Forwards: Jack Cock (Prolific goalscorer), Billy Humphries (Another key attacker)
This XI tries to capture the key aspects of the Tilehurst Terriers team. Hopkins was ever-present during their FA Cup run which included beating Notts County, Manchester United and Chelsea away before losing the semi final against Southend United. The defense is a blend of experience (Webb, Shepherd) and athleticism (Reading, Warner). The midfield provides a good balance of creativity (Getgood), tackling (Allen), and pace on the wings (Loader, Hughes). Up front, the strike partnership of Cock and Humphries was highly successful.

It's important to remember that due to the limited timeframe of the club's existence, there likely aren't many other players who could seriously challenge for a place in this all-time XI. However, some players who deserve mentions are:

George Webb (Another option for defense)
Charlie Harris (Midfield)
Fred Parker (Forward)

:lol: Who any of these players were I haven't a clue. Those nights out were pretty heavy

Clearly you must be a new fan who wasn't around when these "fictional" players played. As for Sir John Madejski, whilst not a standout player he did a half decent job in midfield and has said on many occasions that the support he received as a player was a big factor in his decision to buy the club.
Also turned down the chance to play for Poland because he said it was wrong as he considered himself to be mostly English.

Just the one fictional name, Giles Gannon (though there is a Dr Giles at Gannon University in Pennsylvania)..

Ian Ure he played 200+ games for Arsenal and ManU in the late 60s and early 70s
Larry Scott is an NFL coach
Ivor Powell played for QPR, Villa and Bradford just after the war but was a left half/back not a striker
and try as I might I can't recall Murty captaining the 1985/86 team

Quite how an AI made up these connections to a Reading team I would imagine is beyond anyone's understanding.

Wonder what England's honours list is like under AI.

Just retested via Gemini and Brad Fridel is now in goal while the midfield features Brian McDermott and Graham Le Saux. So at least it's getting better!
