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...

I was there.
It was the only game that I'd ever been taken to on a (as then) Reading corporation double decker bus.

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 ...

Forget Notre Dame

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.

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Look at Bournemouth. "only" playing in front of 11 000 in the Prem. in their 11,000 capacity stadium, I dare say they'd sell twice as many if they had the capacity Classic case of quoting something out of context. It was in response to another poster bemoaning Reading's "fair weather...

Re: Where have the hardcore gone? Culture loss.

Bring back standing. That would help A LOT. See this all the time, it would help nothing at a club like ours in reality. We aren't Celtic, we aren't Borussia Dortmund we are little old Reading where for the last 20 years apathy has reigned supreme. We don't deserve to have standing in all honesty, ...
