Re: Nostalgia thread

Thinking your Bovril was a bit weak, then discovering the lump of solid undissolved Bovril at the bottom of the Styrofoam cup when finishing it. Satin scarves "Football specials". On the train, all arriving together, my favourite. The "football league review" magazine stapled ins...

Re: Nostalgia thread

I can remember my first away visit to Northampton town, and thinking what the actual @xf@rd..... is this? A wedge of open terrace to the right of one goal was where we all were, a seated stand to our right, and a covered home terrace at the other end of the pitch. The other side of us stretched the ...

Re: Reading v QPR Boxing Day moved to 7.30pm kick off for Sky TV

I’ll be out in Cape Town for this one, so should be able to catch it on a TV somewhere, which is nice. What's a South African christmas like? Any outlandish traditions? This’ll be my first one with Lady Hendo so I’m not too sure. From what she has described it sounds very similar but with nice weat...

Stranded Will be on Lanzarote so this works quite nicely, might even be able to get to a pub to see it - would have had no chance with a 3pm kick off.

Re: Who do you want in Round Three?

Yep, great memories. Saw some great matches. Steve Death and Robin Friday I will never forget. One a fantastic goalkeeper and the other a great entertainer on many levels. Remember us beating Wolves in the league cup at Elm Park, 1978 I think, first division vs fourth division too. Death would have...

Re: On this day

I agree with this wholeheartedly. However what is hard for me now is seeing Southampton, who came up with us the second time, as a well established Premier League club with an ability to replace players and managers and continue with what must be a fantastically embedded philosophy within the club ...

Just saw the news.... Yeah, forget Notre Dame, forget what happened in Catalunya tonight. The really sad news is that by far the biggest club in western Europe had two stuck past them at home by the mighty, majestic, imperious juggernaut that is Cardiff City. :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :...

Re: BFTG Sheffield

Fantastic example of why pretty much anyone we bring in is destined to fail. This side isn't capable of an instant difference. Clement may not have been the solution, but he certainly wasn't the main problem. So just trying someone else simply almost certainly can't yield an instant difference. Or ...

Re: RUMOUR - Steve Bruce

In national fans survey a few years ago the Bournemouth fans most hated club was Reading. This would be like moving to Brighton and going to the AMEX. The funny thing about that, though, is most Royals fans I have known and met over the last 40 odd years are almost completely ambivalent towards Bou...

The bloke front row right is Darren. Can't remember his surname, but he was the owner of my then local, The Royal Albion, the New Inn and several other pubs. Ex pro footballer, but never plated for Reading. Ex Forest.
