Re: Mcd says we haven't got any cash....

I just find it annoying that around 2 sides a day in the championship are getting young prem players in on loan with the liklihood the prem club are picking up most of the wages and we are sitting back doing nothing when on saturday we will have a donkey and someone playing out of position against a...

Re: 17th

I think you'll find that 17th is the prediction from Chris Kamara. A year ago, he predicted Peterboro to WIN the Championship !!! So I think it is safe to assume that his predictions are garbage. No he didn't. ER....YES HE DID ! I think he predicted Peterboro would finish in the playoffs. He always...

Re: Favourite season opener of recent times?

Don't think it was actually the first game of the season,but was at least the first home game when the Madejski was opened. 1998 Reading 3 Luton 0 Brebner,Mcintyre,Fleck att 18108 with the famous Rob Styles as referee. That wasn't the first game of the season, it wasn't even the second. The opener ...

Re: Favourite season opener of recent times?

Anyone remember 1975/76?

We scored a goal that hit the side netting on outside and it was given - good omen as we went up.

Re: Gylfi to leave ?!!!

Mate is a box holder at Spurs and knows some of the backroom team.

If he plays well until xmas they will bid in Jan - Redknapp is a big fan.

Re: A HISTORY OF PRE-SEASON FRIENDLIES

Was there a pre season competition called the group cup in the early 1980's?

Remember Kerry Dixon scoring a hat-trick at Aldershot

Re: POLL - What are your expectations this season?

If we stay injury free play offs is possible but lack of cover in defence could undo us.

I think Middlesboro will do much better this time around and QPR could be dangerous

Re: Graham Kemp

We had a guy play for us in a pre season game and scored a hat trick Vs Brentford I think who played football in Prospect Park for West Reading on the pitch by the bowling green.

I think it was early 80' s cannot remember his name - he was a west indian guy.

My brother was 9 (I was 6) in 1971.

Don't think that would happen now - I didn't let my 2 boys go on their own at that age

Re: Penalty miss is still haunting Archie

2005/2006 more than made up for it. That campaign finally blew away the 1995 cobwebs and in many ways I'd have taken defeat that day if it had meant witnessing such a brilliant side storming the Championship soon thereafter. It did but in a way it didn't. It still hurt big time watching it the othe...

Re: Best RFC goalie of all time?

Out of loyalty and service to the club, for a record which stood 30 years, and a few PFA divisional awards along the way I'd go for Steve Death as title is best RFC goalie. I know most of career was in 4th division but the points he saved us over the years was amazing - he also saved quite a few pen...

Re: ESPN CLASSICS

Losing to Walsall in Cardiff hurt a lot lot more. ^ this. The worst of it - other than the not again! factor - was that we now had plush facilities and people were expecting better than 3rd tier football. In 1995 it was all an unexpected bonus. Nah I think Bolton was far worse than Walsall. I think...

Re: ESPN CLASSICS

Just watched it again on ESPN. 2 things I had forgotton

1. Archie missed a really good chance just before half time when Stubbs back headed the ball into his path - Branigan came rushing out and he only had to chip the ball over him

2. Bolton missed a number of chances - even some in the first half
