Re: QPR H Boxing day now 7.30pm live on SKY

Because people have kids. And taking kids to an afternoon boxing day game, quite possibly as a Christmas present, is a bit different to having to take them at 7.30pm after a long xmas day. This was a money over families moment from the club, which is a real shame. They should have been focusing on ...

Re: Alternative to STAR?

Having said that, there doesn't need to be a permanent or fixed association as there is nothing to stop a group of fans with an idea getting together and implementing it - I think the group who occupied the away end to cheer on the team did so off their own backs/contacted the club (apologies for o...

Re: Green Park Match Day Parking

I'd welcome you to try my match day journey and then still suggest it's convenient. I would have thought that £7 per car park space would seem a pretty good deal for most organisations that might have parking available on Saturdays and occasional weekday evenings. Could the difficulty be that our c...

Re: STAR Coach travel for Wembley

Someone is going to ask this.... Is it still 10 Royalty Points for Star membership and if so, will the points be added to the membership straight away, thereby allowing fans to join on Tuesday and have it help them qualify to buy their ticket for the semi a day earlier (assuming they are 10 points ...

Re: SHOULD WE MOVE THE AWAY END?

No, my original statement was poorly worded but I think you get what I was saying. That they would play it safe and just lecture on language and behaviour. Not appreciate that in general terms you do hear swearing, songs with certain words and certain behaviour. Why does standing equal swearing and...

Re: RFC 2014 accounts

Just one question, the loss is £7.3m for the year yet we passed FFP to get below £3m. Presumably this means there was a loan from the Thais largely recovered by the £4.15m player sales/signings post accounts? There is an article on the STAR website that they have had permission to reproduce about h...

Re: RFC 2014 accounts

Any way, what he produces always seems very credible and usually corrects all the misconceptions, misrepresentations and misunderstandings that get po...

As far as I can tell the headline figures are: - We receive £15m a year in parachute payme...

Green It did occur to me this latest "starliason" is authored by an old time (but recently disgraced) member of the forum, not that I'm claiming to be ITK.

No it isn't Dirk as he is not involved in the running of STAR now.

Re: Booing ALF

His name was cheered when the team was announced (unlike Morrison) but once play started he was booed. For what it is worth that is the traditional reaction to a player who is appreciated as part of the booing is because of the fear of what he may do against us. I know it is a bit of a back-hand com...

Re: Should Reading FC be more involved in the community?

Of course they should. I've said it for years. The PR department is non-existent at the club. If you were passing through the town (as is often the case with the train station) you would never know the club existed. I understand the club are doing a better job with sending around representatives to...
