Re: Rival Watch

Can't really see where else to post this and I don't want to start a new thread, but hearty congratulations to Derby on going on to get beaten by Villa in the P/O Final.

You all know what I mean! Especially 'mot'!

Re: On this day

Tranmere 1 Reading 3 - PO SF 1st Leg. In all my years, this was the most perfect away performance I ever witnessed. Tranmere were played off the park and their fans showed their appreciation at the end. A brilliant, brilliant day. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MwxI5e06HXU Yeah I can't think of a ...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by Scott Murray

This will be high scoring. At least 3 goals in the game and will go either way. Either for us with a growing new found confidence/improved team spirit, or against us with typical back down to earth mis-placed expectations.

Re: That Robin Friday goal, now visible on video (sort of)

Close, but not close enough for the Fuhrer. Ball came in to Friday just outside the 'D' (23-25 yds) on the right and he had his back to goal. Still think that the closest I have seen is Thierry Henry's goal v Man Utd in 2000 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ksz6K-tJ6Nc although Friday's goal was hit...

Re: That Robin Friday goal, now visible on video (sort of)

That is a well taken goal but nothing like Fridays.

He collected the ball on his thigh outside the 'D' of the penalty area, about 25 yards from goal and with his back still to goal swung and volleyed it into the top right hand corner (from his viewpoint) of the goal.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Hull City (a) sponsored by Billy Whitehurst

I am reliably informed far from it's reputation as being a shlthole, Hull is actually quite a nice place. I've never been, nor am I likely to, so cannot comment further.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Millwall (a) sponsored by Dean Horrix

No matter how bizarre and desperate the new managerial appointment may be, this must be yet another new low first, him having 2 red cards in his first game. I don't see any end to the malaise and deterioration of the club. Everything is dysfunctional. From top to bottom. How many of the current squa...

Re: The very latest in Clement In/Out Polls

Good Nobbing all of you on this.

Clexit or Clemain?

Ironic and whilst there are lesser stark similarities here, obviously, I get the feeling it'll come down to a roll of the dice in both respects and ultimately we'll probably get it wrong.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bracknell Town (a) sponsored by local derby fun

Old Man Andrews Still trying to figure out who I am supporting in this game. Reading are my team but I have a lot of connection to Bracknell Town. It is going to be a weird one.


Are you appreciating the dilemma Reading4Eva now has every game/season OMA?
