Re: MATCHWATCH : Barnsley (h) sponsored by hopeless at home

What do we know about Barnsley? Will they approach the game like Wigan (and therefore we will see a similar defeat) or are they more Leeds (slim defeat) or Sheff Wed (we won!) After last night is the idea to counteract the opposition or to try and play our own game (or somehow a mix of the two)? Th...

Re: Rival Watch

I initially thought that this thread was for talking about rival teams Actually it about rival Nobbers taking digs at each other and for the rest of us to watch them That goes for a lot of the threads these days, I'm afraid. It got boring some time ago. If any of those Nobbers who are intent on tel...

Re: Jimmy Wheeler RIP

His mum and dad lived a few doors up from us in Beecham Road and at the time he was the nearest we got to a celebrity. I used to play with his much younger brother Frank. A real trier on the pitch and very strong. He used to coach the Spartan League side Huntley & Palmers and it was no surprise...

Re: Jimmy Wheeler RIP

RIP Mr Wheeler. Can you guys share memories of the old boy for plastics like me who know nothing about him? What position was he? What was he like? If you go to the club website, you can see a potted history of his career. Sorry, I don't know how to cut and paste it onto here, perhaps someone could...

Jimmy Wheeler 1933-2020

The club has announced on the Official Website the death of Jimmy Wheeler. Truly a club legend, Reading being the only club he played for. He managed the reserve team and got them promoted, the first promotion the club had had for several decades. I remember the last match of that promotion season a...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Leeds United (a) sponsored by Simon Church

Don't you get more money the higher you finish in the Division? If so, 13th. is better than 14th. So finishing 7th would be a lot better than 14th. , wouldn't it?

Re: Reading FC Womens World

Hound Look fairly comfortable in 4th. Slight shame they are so far from 3rd but seems to be a solid enough season

Considering who the top three are, it's puts us Best of the Rest. Man. City, Chelsea and Arsenal finish in the top three most (if not all) seasons.

Re: Sheff Utd (H) Cup

If Relegation is almost mathematical out of the question why not play the "FA Cup" team in the two matches (Wigan and Barnsley at home) in the seven days prior to the Sheffield United game and play the best eleven in the FA cup? This way the "fringe/younger" players will get gam...

Re: Elm Park Years

When I started going to Elm Park, we went to the Town End (?) before the start, then stayed there if The Biscuitmen attacked that end. At half time a stroll along the South Bank to the other end, so we would be behind the goal where we hoped the goals would be scored. However, some times there was a...
