Re: BFTG Ipswich

Over the 90 minutes. Did we look like a team that could compete agaiinst the better teams in the league? Not really no. The above summary is pretty accurate. On top first half, should have gone in two up really. Ipswich came out fired up and no surprise on the balance of play that they equalised. T...

Re: Ipswich (A)

Yeah, engineering works on the Liverpool St line most weekends due to Crossrail. Still quicker to go this route than via Cambridge. They are well practised at the bus and train changes so it should work without a glitch - long old tube ride out to Newbury Park though.

Re: Ex Players

Bruce Stuckey is living in semi- retirement in the town of his birth, Torquay. I bumped into him in the Clocktower pub when on holiday there a couple of years ago. He is a great raconteur and enjoyed telling stories about playing against the likes of Pele in the North American Soccer League, and pla...

Re: Ex Players

Ibrahima Sonko playing for Harlow Town at Needham Market 21 November 2017. He is the player at the back. Harlow lost the match 5-1 and Sonko described the game as "a bad day at the office" when I spoke to him afterwards.

Re: Ex Players

Glen Little playing for Heybridge Swifts against Phoenix Sports 22 April 2017. This was possibly the most bizarre match I've ever seen. Heybridge needed a win and other results to go for them to stay up. They found themselves 2-0 down at half-time, clawed their way back to 2-2, but then had a man se...

Re: CONFIMRED - Sam Walker

Watched him many times at Colchester. He's decent but I'm doubtful that he's good enough to displace Mannone. He'll probably have to wait for the League Cup to get a game. He's very tall but lightly built and hence his song at Colchester "That boy Sam Walker - he's seven foot tall".

Big mate of Mark McGhee and a handful of Reading appearances under him. Did he actually act as McGhee's assistant for a while?

Re: BFTG Ipswich

McShane: 5. He probably wouldn't say that was one of his better games and enraged the home crowd by going down at one stage, on apparent orders from the bench, for an injury which involved changing his shirt for some reason. McShane came out of the dressing room at full-time with stiches in a cut o...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Ipswich Town (a) sponsored by a Steve Richardson goal

The Reading team coach has been involved in a collision on leaving Portman Road. Someone has impaled their car in the rear of the coach. Car looks a mess but coach looks not too bad. Don't know if anyone has been hurt but expect all on coach to be OK.

Re: Programme this season

As an exile it's sad to hear that the programme has gone downhill in recent times. However, even when they did publish proper pen pictures of the opposition, they often got it wrong. Here's a couple of examples:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WhE5yHsIfVw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BlW9Gu3WOnA

Bruce Stuckey

I just thought I'd share a bit of news about a former player. I had a holiday in Torquay late last year, and by pure chance bumped into Bruce Stuckey in one of the local pubs. I overheard him speaking to some of his mates about football and it soon became clear that he used to play for Reading. I co...

Here's an ad from one of my local football teams (near Ipswich). The graphic used to illustrate it is quite good :D .

Re: Robin Friday

I too was there at Elm Patk for THAT goal and I've still got the match programme to prove it - 31 March 1976. It's difficult to be objective when you look back all those years ago, but trying to put the rose-tinted glasses aside, Friday was certainly a wonderful player on his day and would certainly...
