Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

Moving on... how about this cracker from Jose? Mourinho says Reading, who sit 21st in the Championship table, will present a similar challenge to the games his side face week in, week out in the top flight. "I think the Championship teams are much better than before," Mourinho said on MUT...

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

I was sat in the Arsenal directors area and had a toasted bagel at halftime. Living the dream, gr8 m8. I sat in front of two of the most drunken twats I've ever had to put up with - which from me is saying something. I remember our moronic fan base chanting at Van Persie that he was a rapist or som...

Re: FA cup 3rd round draw

Don't worry - OMA is a good poster, he just comes out with the odd burst of complete nonsense every now and then I think old man andrews is spot on. You only have to look at our away tie against Arsenal in the League Cup back in 2005 era when we took 200,000 away fans 99% of them being daytrippers....

Re: BFTG Wigan.

I disagree, I think his relationship with the fans is non-repairable now, with the chants of "Off, off, off" when he got booked from our own fans. Pretty sad how juvenile some of our fans are, I don't particularly rate him but how will that help his confidence at all. I see J Low try to r...

Re: BFTG Wigan.

I explained my point in that way because in my opinion, that is the best way to describe the reason that Gunter plays the way he plays. Gunter is actually an excellent player. He is very good. He has been a fantastic player for us in the past. But I think the way he performs nowadays is because of ...

Re: BFTG Wigan.

Gunter was dissapointing at Wigan. Pre Stam, he was a very good player. But he has been radicalised by Stams poisonous, total possession football ideology. He just refuses to go forward. He keeps taking us back and back and back. He needs to enter a rehabilitation programme and be completely de-rad...

Re: Clement's week on a beach in Dubai last week

I wonder how he enjoyed his week in Dubai whilst the rest of the squad, sports scientists, coaches etc were hard at work at Hogwood during the current international break? Back today I believe to a not very wholesome reaction. Dressing room lost. Not doubt considering what to spend the remaining 2½...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Nope, for someone who has about 5 generations of family living in the Reading area, 2 generations before me (that I know of) having season tickets at Elm Park and having a keen interest in history, I never knew that Reading used to be called the Biscuitmen. But you carry on making your assumptions....

Re: BFTG Millwall Home

Light years is a measure of distance not time. :wink: Actually, it is just a cliche and used as a measure of ability. When used there will be someone or something happening to compare two or more parties, so that one could be said to be light years ahead of others. Yes, I know how it is used figura...

Re: Ex Players

"Terry's gonna get ya" hated Reading as a place and hated Branfoot but never ever put in anything less than 100% and acted like he would die for the cause. Nobody liked Branfoot, players or fans, which is pretty unique when you consider that under him we romped the old Div 3 and broke all...

I've not been able to go to matches for a while so haven't seen Reading play for a while but just curious if everyone agrees that Aluko is a waste of space or are there those who disagree but keep quiet on here?

It seems a shame that someone who gave so much out on the park should end up selling sandwiches for a living, especially at his age. Mind you, he may be making good money.
