Re: BFTG ‘Ull (A)

Good effort and commitment from everyone to hang on for the draw. Speaking as someone who knows nothing about the finer technicalities of football, the problem to me appears to lie with the midfield who just go missing so often when the defence are trying to play it forward. So keeper rolls it out t...

Re: Song for Mannone

Just get the fans to sing the whole of Nessum Dorma and throw the word Mannone in there somewhere. Vito Mannone, he's our goalie. Vito Mannone, he's our number one. He'll stop them scoring.

Re: Do You Rate Chris Gunter?

If Gunter didn't already play for us and we signed him for a reasonable fee I'm sure most people here would be pleased/impressed that we had a signed a player who was a first choice selection in an international team that had qualified for Euro 2016.

Re: FA Cup 5th Round

Carlisle away. It's a ground I've not seen Reading play at and my '92 grounds' thing is it only counts if Reading are playing there.

Re: Return of Sidwell??

I would take Sidwell back if only for the experience and teaching you could tap into to help develop Tish and any other of the midfielders who care to listen. Okay it would be expensive as I'm sure he would want a decent wage but I am suspending reality and assuming the owners now have unlimitedly d...

Re: Championship is horrible football

Thinking back to 1987 when a Steve Richardson equaliser earnt us the point that gave Reading its best ever league finish, 13th in the second tier, (ironically it was at Ipswich), are we deserving of this current self hate? Up to 13th today, mid-table, and just where a lot of us would've been deligh...

Re: Big Following For Cardiff

And it's down the M4, not up. Surely it's along the M4, it's neither up nor down..... I thought it was related to railway lines. Up line went to London, down line went away from London. Therefore it would be 'M4 down to Cardiff'. Not sure how it works on railway lines that don't go anywhere near Lo...

Re: Re-poll: Next Manager

I would like to see a manager who has a track record of integrating youth with first team along with some level of promotion success in the championship (which is different to div 1/2) That sounds ideal, but for the life of me I can't think of any examples. Can anyone think of a manager who has rec...

Went there once, play off semi final, vowed never to return.
