Re: Your first game watching Reading FC

First Reading game was the FA Cup tie against Newcastle in 1990. Drew 3-3 in an exciting game. Newcast...

I emigrated to Austria 10 years ago having watched Reading since the mid-1980s and had a season ticket at Madejski stadium. Madejski's ownership brought stability and took the club f...

Re: Wigan in Administration

I wouldn't laugh we could be next. Along with others sadly this Covid is going to hit football very hard. Why would we be next ? It would be unlikely, but I wouldn't rule out us breaking financial fair play rules if the owner puts more money than is permitted into the club to ensure we don't go int...

SCIAG On the other hand you need to pay full price for an ordinary copy of The Selfish Gene because Dawkins and his publishers have a monopoly.

Re: Finance

... intellectual property generates a deadweight loss. I understand why you might want to get rid of market inefficiencies - but I'd argue that there are many more important problmes to fix than depriving musicians of income.

Re: Finance

I think Sir Cliff Richard said that he's going to lose ownership of some of his own songs because he wrote them so long ago, Perhaps the rule should be that they become copyright free after something like x years or x years after the artists dies, whichever is the longer. There are (at least) two t...
