Re: Swift to... Southampton

If we could get a decent fee for him, then I wouldn't be against him moving on. Ejaria is a skilful playmaker so I don't think we would miss him too much. I would prefer we sold Swift rather than Moore. +1 If we sold Moore he would need to be replaced when Miazga and Blackett are likely to go. Morr...

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

Pretty sure there were some shenanigans going on behind the scenes involving Butler's wife and another member of staff, maybe Pardew ? IIRC, he also got a nasty ankle injury which really set him back. That was Martin Allen. Think it was a factor in Pardew sacking him as I seem to remember in an int...

Re: What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

Memorable missed game - first game at the Madstad v Luton coincided with my dear little brother getting married. For me, there are two. Derby title clinching game in 2006, wanted to go but couldn't get tickets. Had a feeling after the Watford game the previous month that we might win promotion that...

Re: What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

Got into football in 1995, firstly the Premiership and then started following the local teams, partly I think after discovering someone at school was a Reading fan. Have wondered at times whether he goes to games (presume he did at the time), or posts on here. This was during the playoff season. The...

His podcast a year or so ago intimated some of that.

Re: Royals on the Box/Internet Thread

Reading the article yesterday it suggested it would be on the Facebook Watch page? If that isn't the case then a bit confused about where to find it. Tbh, given my track record of watching streams, including the youth this season, we've probably got more chance of winning if I don't watch... Edit - ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (h) sponsored by hopeless at home

Apparently his ankle was heavily strapped. tbh, I've become less impressed with Morrison over the course of the season. Still a good player, and a good signing, but I do think next year we should be looking to McIntyre to start over him It's a good job Miazga could play as JLow said that Blackett w...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (h) sponsored by hopeless at home

Could see us playing 5-3-2 on Tuesday which would solve the selection dilemma but it depends on Miazga's recovery. He said on BBC Berks after the game that he's not 100% fit yet.

Re: Second season success stories

Doyle started off on the bench and it was only an injury to Kitson against Burnley that got him starting games. He started scoring pretty much as soon as he got in the starting lineup. Yes that’s how I remember it. And he changed that game against Burnley when he came on. I remember saying during t...

Nicky Shorey is the guest on TalkSport at the moment Just caught up with this, was on from just after 11 until 12 on Thu night. Not much that came as a surprise but good nonetheless. There was an interesting story which I assumed was from his time at Reading. He said he was doing some coaching and ...

I’m currently in Cardiff for work will finish at 7pm right next to the stadium, and have a free ticket. Couldn’t be arsed though. Does anyone know if it’s on TV/sky/stream? Royals and Racers posted on a previous page that it's not on the Sky Red Button. I'm guessing this is because it counts as a w...

Re: Ho(ut)we

When I noted that Araruna could play RB I assumed it was with a view to him providing cover there next season with Gunter likely to leave in the summer (imo), and maybe Howe going out on loan now if Yiadom was back in contention. Was surprised when Nolan left so shocked about this. Maybe this will g...

Re: FA Cup 19/20

Zammo Woman at work is our One Show cup draw representative tonight. Done it before apparently.


Has she been on BBC RB before, like for their midweek sports show last season? Think her name and voice was familiar.

Re: Rival Watch

Given that Reading is more than twice as far away as Gillingham for me i'm not sure where the few miles up the road comment comes in. The game you mentioned was at the The Valley, Charlton. A short and direct train journey away from Gillingham. Do you want to ask a different question, or do you wan...

Re: Rival Watch

I would say Medway in general. For several years I went to about 1 Gillingham game a season and always thought I could never go more regularly as it would mean mixing with the locals more often, (apart from obviously wanting to go to our games more often). There was often an unsavoury atmosphere, D...

Brilliant article and sounds like a really great guy. Very moving to hear how he speaks of Dolan, and interesting to see the positive view he had of Adkins and how things went downhill for the Academy graduates under Clarke. Glad to see he's doing well and hope to see him back in the league soon. T...

Neither of those things will happen though will it? Leeds are a Champions League club in waiting, a top 6 Premier League club at worst.
