Harold I'm of the opinion that friendlies are a waste of time going to watch unless for instance Reading play somebody like Inter Milan that have some good international players on show.


Even that is a waste of time IMHO.

joe999 I can imagine what Berkshire will say if they're asked to come back.

I think you are seeing the best business plan being put in place to make the club a viable proposition. If you think about what has happened of late then it all makes perfect business sense : Rise in ticket prices - Increase profit margins and income Two new shirts - Increase profit in merchandisin...

107 have announced dedicated shows to Reading FC every Monday and Friday as part of the deal. Maybe they are taking it more seriously now and an increase in quality will result.

Can't see the fuss to be fair.

A much larger majority of our games will be covered live either by television on the national radio stations next year. Listen to them.

Take note, negative posters (i.e. West Stand Tosser, SDR, Bracknell RFC etc etc) Real supporters have their say but they still support the team. That's what being a proper fan is all about. People are entirely justified to be as critical as they like about the team and the club in general - so long...

Was I dreaming or did Exeter actually beat Fulham 1-0 in a preseason friendly? Yes they did. And it means absolutely bugger all. We lost to Dorchester last year IIRC. Doesn't that depend on the teams fielded? Did we field a reserve team against Dorchester? :? Apparently Jimmy Bullard came on for Fu...

mattyougg The back is good; but i'm not too sure about the collar, and the vertical striped sholders.

The kit needs to isnpire the players - last season we had a supreme kit, look what happened to us then!


I thought last years kit was awful. This is definitely an improvement IMHO.

cmonurz It shows the enormity of our task that if we win all of our games against those opposition (which we won't) we will have only 48 points. Going to need some shock results somewhere.


48pts will be more than enough to stay up. The most any team has gone down with is 42.

Gordons Cumming Does anyone know what purchases Sunderland made when entering the Premiership in their record breaking season?

Reading v Tottenham 1988 - Gazza's debut for Spurs after signing from Newcastle - Luther Blissett guested for us and scored one of the greatest goals ever seen at EP...finished 2-1 to us, I think...? Wasn't that also Martin Hicks' testimonial? Pretty sure we won 2-1 and Gazza also scored for Spurs....

Don't see the problem. They've allocated tickets based on the smallest allocation that they know they will get.

As has been said, if we get drawn away to a club with a smaller away end then they'll bring in an additional level of allocation like royalty points.

I am surprised by the negativitiy on this topic. Most people are either happy for us to finish 17th or beat one of the big boys at home. I think you are overestimating the Premiership.

Isn't the buyback scheme something that the club have to offer as part of the Premier League charter? As a result, their hands are tied a bit as to what they can and can't do.
