Re: Rival Watch

Gonna throw a hypothetical at you all, fans who have actually experienced the Reading - Oxford rivalry, would you want them to win the play-offs to get that rivalry back next season? Getting the rivalry back will be great, i miss the good old days playing Oxford, Swindon and Aldershot, however, it ...

In 1965, my father took me to an FA Cup game against Brentford. We won 5-0. Ever since that day etc etc

Re: Top 5 Rivals

Back in the 60s it was Swindon, later Oxford came through from Div 4 and were also rivals.

In those palmy days no one was quite sure where Aldershot was. We did have a couple of cup games c1967, but any form of competition was strictly limited until Reading were relegated in 1971

Sutekh I’m sure Reading would be the right plaice for either of them.

Looking at plaices in Coley, so I've heard...

Re: BFTG - Norwich

Been a Reading fan for over 50 years...blah blah etc. As l now live in South Africa, l only see the odd televised games. This is all so sad. The life seems to have gone from the squad. Would new management be the answer? I remember the Third...and Fourth Divisions. We really don't want to go back th...

Re: In or Out?

It's not working. The writing was on the wall last season with heavy defeats and an unrealistic final placing. The playoffs were not exactly an advert for the beautiful game either. Poor signings, neglect of unfavoured though talented players. Let Mynheer Stam go and find a manager with the capacity...

Re: Oxford - Reading

Oxford is a Jekyll and Hyde sort of place. World class uni and wonderful buildings on one side, sink estates and run down post industrial wastelands on the other. Not even worth the few bob to string wires along the branch line from Didcot. The team has no real history, apart from a brief flurry in ...
