Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Would this be the shortest route? http://www.gmap-pedometer.com/?r=7391807 There's now a new road going across the top of that "u" shape - joining in to the roundabout, In which case, 0.82 miles from Kirtons bridge to the stadium bus stops. Or a 15 minute stroll. Eminently usable and conv...

Re: League Cup 1st Round

We went there for the first round in 96 lost 2-0. I really hate this cup I don't know why we bother. Swindon and Oxford have won it even Wycombe have reached the semi finals. And Burton :o it was pay on the gate and, for some reason, Wycombe were surprised when 3000+ Reading fans turned up for a lo...

Re: League Cup 1st Round

True. I have lasting memories of our last two trips to O*ford though where by those knuckle dragging inbreds were pushing over elderly fans and spitting at kids. They even stormed their own bloody pub and tipped tables etc. We saw it coming so left, leaving the place mostly O*ford fans, which was a...

Anyone remember Keith Knight? Hero of the golden seasons between 1988-90? Well, his son, Tom, has been selected for the England under 20 rugby team. Thought you all needed to know.

Re: On this day

Without doubt my worst day as a Reading fan. It took me months to accept the defeat. I've never really understood supporters who claim they're devastated after a defeat or cry on the telly. Reading losing has never really affected me that much; it's normally forgotten after I've left the ground. Ex...

Getting on for a quarter of a century ago. Only Reading fans well into their 30s will have any memory of this :shock:

Re: 29 Years ago today

Final game of the season. Birmingham City 0-1 Reading Michael Gilkes scores late with the most unwanted Reading goal in history. Birmingham denied a play off spot. Anyone else at this game? Genuinely terrifying exprience trying to make it to the station afterwards. Game held up due to 2 mass pitch ...

Ha. The Mersey Clipper? Thats the one missed that i was in the Prenton Arms. Knew it was going to be a good day before the game when the barman in the Prenton Arms, faced with a bar three deep, pointed at thirsty Royals in turn saying "I'm serving you, then you, then you, then you...". An...

Re: Twenty’s Plenty

Where does stooping down to the other clubs level get you? We should be at the forefront of trying to change the ticket pricing and indeed Ipswich gave up cheap tickets this season in direct response for us doing it for them. Just because other clubs are greedy bastards doesn't mean we need to be. ...

Re: Bristol City fan with local info Goodfriday

Pretty sure I've walked from Temple Meads and taken in a pub en route First stop, the historic Seven Stars, 5 mins walk from the station. Arrived there late morning before the game in 2009 with about 20 others off the train. Pub was shut so we knocked on the door, landlord leant out of the upstairs...

Re: On this day

30 March 2002. A beautiful bright, sunny day. And a trip to Ashton Gate.

A 3-3 thriller and total carnage in the packed away end. A proper day out. Was that the day the Queen Mum died as well?

The scariest thing about watching that is that Ian Branfoot was 37 years old when he took over at Reading and 41 when we won the Simod Cup. :shock:

The end of March provides a rich seam of On This Day memories. Though you need to be middle-aged to remember this. 31 years ago:
