Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (a) sponsored by Paul Holsgrove

Holmes certainly and Morrison the pick in the first half.
Getting into it and we'll have one or two decent chances in the second and can see us winning this.
Agreed with more closeups of Colin esp when Boro give free kicks away.....

Re: Your first game watching Reading FC

Didn't we have this thread towards the start of 'Ronas? *searches* Yup. What I posted back in April.... You're a season before me, Ark.... 14th February, 1968 was my first game at EP. A 0-0 against Northampton but it was Valentine's day and my unrequited love was sealed. I was born in Gosport and my...

Re: Sone Aluko

I'll be fair, when he returned to Twitter and started posting he came across as quite intelligent, not at all like I had imagined, probably from the negativity around his time at the club. I admit that I was very pleasantly surprised when I looked at his Twatter on Saturday evening - smart, insight...

Criminal he has got a club. Can't remember the game last season when Tom Mac and him were the two centre halves and played like seasoned pros.... I thought: "There's the future of RFC....." Sounds like he's been very poorly advised by his agent based on pre-Covid greed. Just needs to get a...

Re: If you didn't support Reading, who would you have supported and why?

I'm ashamed to admit it but probably Pompey as I was born in Gosport dockyard and saw my first ever games at Fratton Park where my grandfather was a life president and my Ma and grandma were STHs. Failing that, Charlton coz my old man was born a couple of stones throws from the Valley and lived the ...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

English football - and specifically the Prem - is a global business. The EPL only wants to maximize its revenues through (predominantly) broadcasting rights, while every ne'er-do-well (guns, drugs, slaves through to a little light corruption) globally wants to wash its dirty money (except Norway, of...

Re: Playoffs 2019/20

I bet the TVP are rather hoping that it's the Chairboys and not the Pox.

Every Nobber should be hoping for the latter .... now if only we had our real derby with the Sh*ts in a non-descript cup.

Absolute mirror image of the goal conceded against Stoke..... Zonal might work if you mark all the zones.... no challenges, two soft headers. Sunday League shite.

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Great options from RFC and I would hope most STHs will take the iFollow option or donate to the foundation. A refund just seems churlish - except, of course, for those who are feeling real hardship as a result of the coronas. The club still hasn't answered my question, though, as an overseas fan and...

Steve Blatherwick has to be the worst defender I've ever seen in a Reading shirt Ooo, that's a good call. Thinking about it, Colgan would be my GK. He was utterly inept - like so bad my ninety year od mother with her Weinstein-esque walker would be more mobile and kick further - on that fateful 'Ta...
