Forbury Lion ...he'd overstretched on his mortgage ...

That's an incredible coincidence - The Secret Footballer had the same problem. And the same solution. And the same outcome.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Charlton Athletic (h) sponsored by Dave Shipperley

They have some good points on their forum tbh: "Reading has got the dirtiest KFC I've ever seen, that dirty that I walked straight past " "It had the same greasy hand marks and tomato sauce splatters over the windows for the whole 2 weeks I worked there." If you remember, the to...

Re: Record Watch 2019/20

So Premier League excepted until the second matchday, we're already down to just 8 football league teams who can threaten our wins record - Sheff Weds, Charlton, Blackpool, Lincoln, Fleetwood, Plymouth, Swindon and Exeter. Wonder what the fastest is that all teams have lost their 100% record? You'v...

Oilroyal
tmesis I don't think I'd call Maskell a success either.


I thought that but looking at his wiki it's 72 apps and 99 goals :shock: That cant be correct, can it?

Should be 26 league goals.

Re: CONFIMRED - Puscas

Back in the 1960s how many Reading fans dreamed of Puskas, Moore and Pelé playing for the club? Wasn't it 1956 when Puskas ran rings, with Hungary, around the England team? I remember watching that match in B&W on TV 1953. You're older than you thought. But you might remember some other Hungari...

Re: Rival Watch

Disciplinary points deciding positions? Is that new? Yes - last season it was just points, goal difference, goals scored, then play-off. But obviously it will never apply in practice at the end of a season. Do Assistant Coach cards count as well? Asking for a friend. :lol: No, it's just players. I ...

Re: Rival Watch

The EFL have changed this, I think, because of the impossibility of fitting in a play-off to determine position before the actual play-offs start so it now goes something like GD, goals scored, Head to head to head, away goals, discipline. Basically they were throwing everything in to avoid ever ha...

Re: Rival Watch

Why? If Reading finish in 22nd spot, would you accept relegation on alphabetical order? Surely you would claim that we are equal with the 21st. team and demand a play-off. But, having said that, with our record in play-offs, we may just as well accept 22nd. I think it works on a lot of variables af...

Re: The Academy/Development squads watch thread 2015//16

Reading U23 won 2-1, with goals from Popa and Odimayo. Roeselare had a player sent off near the end, and again Reading failed to score against 10 men (but didn't concede either). Reading line-up: Andrésson (46′ Boyce-Clarke), Watson (63′ Elva-Fountaine), Osho, Odimayo (46′ Burley), Medford-Smith, Ea...

Re: Rumour - Rafael Cabral

Platypuss Agree, Virginia was nowhere to be seen for Chelsea's third and fourth and should have done much better.

Pretty sure that will be too subtle for Finerain.

Delighted to say that David Meyler now qualifies for this thread. Based on what I've seen of him on the pitch he's probably looking at Combined Counties clubs at this very moment.

Michael Olise's shirt

As someone pointed out last season, Olise does not have the Sky Bet flashes on his sleeves. The suggestion was that this was because he is under 18 and so can't be used to advertise gambling. So why does he have the Casumo logo? Here's a good example (also shows him drifting past the Chelsea defence...

Re: Pre season tour

Platypuss Blackett went off injured - didn't see how it happened, but did it look like a bad one?

A pull whilst stretching - didn't look too major, and might not even have been an immediate sub had it been a competitive game.

But now he's in the hands of the RFC medical team, so I'd say six months.

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

I do have a hint of nerves, mainly because the ticket site doesn't seem sure where I've renewed or not. My Loyalty Points details show I have. If I choose "season tickets" from the menu under my name, it shows my seat with a status of "not renewed" If you look at your history it...

tidus_mi2 No idea what Osho was doing there, arm outstretched and Sevilla score the resulting penalty, 1-1

That was Omar Richards, not Osho.

The club have stated quite clearly on several occasions that all adult season ticket holders will receive a new card for this season. For example, the section headed "Will I receive a new Season Ticket for 2019-20?" at: https://www.readingfc.co.uk/news/2019/may/season-tickets-2019-20--join...

Re: Green park station/south Reading station

Whereabouts in GP is the station going to be? Tried googling around etc but couldn’t find the exact location. Guessing near the A33? Surprisingly enough, it will instead be by the railway line and so not near the A33. Just north of the Kirtons Farm Road bridge. So, how far is the walk to the ground...

Re: Gary Hooper

Hooper had a trial with Reading and we didn't take him on. OK, so it was in 2005, but the journalist could have written something like "Reading reject Gary Hooper..."
