Re: Would you take 4th place now?

Snowflake Royal Think how great it'll be when we eventually win a final.


Would of course take that, but it would be horrendous if it was in front of an empty Wembley.

Re: BFIT - Wycombe (H)

Radio 5 said Reading were by far the better side in the second half, having been frustrated in the first half. This is exactly the case. First half Wycombe had higher intensity and nullified us somewhat, but the way they played is nowhere near sustainable for 90 minutes. We looked much slicker afte...

Re: Marc McNulty arrested for match fixing

oxf*rd hell chaps. Let's all have a party because one of our players is allegedly suspected of match fixing so we can sack him and get him off the wage budget easier? Don't try too hard to hide your feelings. That's cold. Why? If he has been up to no good and breached his contract he can have no co...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by things to come

oxf*rd off QPR. Yeah very late that.....still lol at Forest. Seems the tips for the top like them and Cardiff don't look all that at the minute. Forrest will turn it around. Shoe in for top 6 imho. Do you reckon? They have been abysmal given the restart over the summer, and given the short turnarou...

Re: What goes on inside our owners' heads?

As well as the obvious public unrest, things are an absolute mess with the back room staff at the stadium too, even before the disruption of the pandemic. Based on some of the information I’m receiving, the owners have gone from honestly naive to just being negligible. ‘Negligible’ ? What do you me...

Re: On this day

8 years ago today Sunderland away water logged pitch Still think that played a fairly big part in us going down that year. Meant we went there with a threadbare squad instead of going there off the back of a very decent (if losing) performance at Chelsea - would have fancied us winning that day. 10...

Re: Most underrated/"does a job" player for Reading?

Can’t agree with the Jay Tabb shout, he offered literally nothing in four years - he even managed to get sent off on the bench.

Ran a lot, sure, but I don’t think he ever got over 5/10.

Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

I remember being outraged at the Nash challenge, I think his legs going up in the air after the collision made it look worse than it was. Slightly different but a few years ago we put the ball out for an injury against Sheffield United. They played it back to us tamely, but Billy Sharp nipped in an...

Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

Two spring to mind at the start of the 12/13 season. 1. Torres’ offside goal in the Chelsea game. In a game that showed us maintaining our positive momentum from the previous season, we more than held our own against the European Champions. With ten minutes to go a clearly offside Torres puts them i...

SCIAG Thought Rosenior looked good under Coppell and he had a good career after Rodgers released him.


Not only did Rosenior look good, saying he had an ego couldn't be further from the truth - a thoroughly humble and likeable chap.

We're talking about Liam, not Leroy.


Yes, Liam

Re: Worst Reading Player

I know his name has already come up but surely Hope Akpan has to win this hands down. Not once do I ever remember him kicking the ball in the direction he intended to. Truly woeful. Whatever was Coppell thinking? Honorable mention to Liam Rosenior. He might have got away with his totally limited st...

Re: Do we dare to dream?

If the season doesn't get voided then I think we will see a few surprises in the finals stages of each EFL league. I'm not suggesting it will be us, but some of the teams who were in form will come back sluggish and off the pace, whilst those who were struggling may return with a new found vigour. A...

Re: Worst Reading Player

Goater would have been quality if Pardew had stayed, the tactics at the start of the season were built around him and he was banging in the goals early on.

Andy Hughes almost hit double figures in 02/03, so he should be exempt.

Karacan is a truly laughable suggestion.
