Re: Elm Park: Which current ground most similar?

I've always followed Morton's results since learning from my 1975 Subutteo Kit Colour Chart that they played in blue and white hoops the same as Reading.

Can you buy Ferguson's Chocolates in Waitrose? That would be another 'spooky' link.

Re: Pompey (H) Predictions

If the players go into this thinking it will be a stroll cos Pompey have already gone down the pan then t'will all go horribly wrong: 1 v 2 Portsmouth (Halford and Nugent, if he still plays for them, if not someone else) If Brian gets the players heads right and they go out and play as they can do: ...

Snowball The gate will be between 23 and 24,000. Put your house on it.

So thats a margin of error of 23,977. Not a very specific guess!

Re: Portsmouth fc

I have a vague recollection of Portsmouth fans coming to Elm Park in the seventies (possibly early eighties) and near killing a Reading fan in the fighting that took place. I've hated them ever since. The sooner they go out of existence the better.

Re: Avoid The Play Offs

There is no need to fret about a play-off final this year. Our end of season destiny is to beat Birmingham in the last game which will see us overtake them and nick second spot.

Re: Back from the game - Hull

Listened to the match commentary on BBC Radio Humberside and even they (in their obviously biased for the Hull audience opinion) said Reading were by far the better team, and that Hull were hanging on and lucky not to be a couple of goals behind. Then they scored, so I switched off cos couldn't stan...

Re: Home kit leaked

Why couldn't they take the lower two 'horizontal stripes' right round the shirt to make a complete hoop, rather a plain white back. There is still plenty of room for the player name and number above if they did.

Which players will go for wearing the collar up in an Eric Cantona stylee?

Re: Anyone else think we will lose?

I think we have to win for the longer term future of the club. There are some big (and rich) clubs coming into the Championship next season from both directions. It will be significantly harder to get promotion or a play-off spot next year and maybe several after that. The money to be had from even ...

I will bring my Reading FC Wembley flag from the Simod Cup Final. Lovingly stored in the back of my wardrobe since 1988. It has a 100% winning record for matches I have taken it too.

Re: Cardiff predictions

We play Cardiff on Friday. On Friday Cardiff fans will have to drive past Swindon - nicknamed the Robins (and some other ruder things.) = Robin Friday Voted all time legend player or something similar at both Reading and Cardiff Its a spooky omen and clearly foretells that we will win, or they will.

Re: Who's going to win the play-offs?

Mark Bright has 'a hunch for Reading' according to Mark Bright when asked who he thought would win the play-offs during whatever game he was co-commentating on yesterday.

Or maybe he said he has 'a lunch in Reading'. I was wasn't listening that intently.
