Re: RFC 2nd best manager ever poll

It's got to be McGhee - his team gave us teh impetus to move grounds as fans were regularly locked out.

Re: Reading Hall of Shame?

Malcolm Swain = good shout - in fact most of that season's squad come to think of it.

We finished 16th in Div 4 and were hammered 5-0 at Workington in front of 1100 fans.

Things are not that bad now !

Re: Cardiff prediction thread

1 -2.

We'll take the lead but they'll level before half time and score again before the hour and play out the game.

Re: Most gutting moment as a Reading fan.

Both play off finals were bad because of the manner they were lost - missed pen for 3-0 V Bolton and joke own goal Vs Walsall when they were running on empty. The relegation to div 4 in 1983 was bad - we won our game and were celebrating but Exeter who only needed a point to finish above us (I think...

Re: Old Kit

Agree 1969 - 1977 was best when we had the narrow hoops with white shorts/socks. I've got a genuine replica top from I think 1982/3 which is half white/half hoops with Osca the kit manufacturer. It's horrible sweaty material though and no wonder the team struggled - I think we went down in that kit ...

It would be nice to see some money spent soon - Cardiff have just spent nearly all the Johnson money on Chopra although don't think he's worth £4m

Re: NO LONGER A RUMOUR - Doyle to Wolves for £6.5m

Top guy and done a great job over the last 4 years but all in all we've done well to get that sort of money for him quite honestly. He is unproven in the Prem to a large extent with just one good season and what is noticable about him (even in championship) is that he cannot do the business in a str...

Re: Did you see that Tranmere game?

Went to both games (age 45) The game at EP was one of those evening games with typical EP atmosphere & actually quite close until the Friday goal - although we were 2-0 up at the time they were having a decent spell just before the goal. I went with my grand-dad and he always insisted on going b...

Re: who do you want as our next manager?

Jack Mansell - we did play good football and scored lots of goals

Seriously we need someone who will entertain and get the crowd going - Martinez would be an excellent choice and has contacts - is third fav at 5-1 in one of the London evening papers tonight.

Re: Predictions: vs Brum & Palace v Sheff Utd

Just seen Warnock on Sky saying how let down he has been in the past by managers playing weakened sides (probably referring to Liverpool loosing at Fulham the other year when Sheff U went down) and how he would never do that - there's no way Palace will lay down and die.

Re: Predictions: vs Brum & Palace v Sheff Utd

I'm not convinced Sheff Utd will find it as easy as a lot of people are saying. Remember, Palace have had nothing to play for for ages and have been playing kids for weeks but have held us and Brum recently and only lost to Wolves to a really dodgy pen. I'm going for 1 - 1 in that game we'll win 2-0...

Re: Best games at Elm Park?

The Tranmere score was actually 5-0 - I missed it as too young to go to an evening match!

Agree Plymouth 4-3 takes some beating

Barnsley 7-0 1979/80 was good as well.

Wolves 1-0 1978/79? First Div Vs 4th Div - Pat Earles winner 55 mins.

If we make it up on Sun I reckon it must be some sort of record - this time last week we were 9 points off an auto promotion spot with just 12 days of the season left!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: New Kit Again Next Season - R£ADING FC

On subject of replica kits, I have what I think may be the first year Reading sold exact replica kits - we were Div 3 then. It's from around 1982 (as I have pictures of Neil Webb and Gary Heale wearing it) and the manufacturer is Osca - there is no shirt sponsor. I think it was our last season in ho...

I went last night and best performance this year.

In fact I would say best 4 this season have been Sheffield, Wolves, Brum and Derby all away.

Re: London Irish. WHY???

Notice Dave Kitson also had a moan about our rugby pitch as well (in London lite tonight). I'm sure I've read somewhere that the club think the pitch condition this season is a one off caused by heavy rain in Dec and too many games in a couple of weeks, and not to do with rugby. Funny that most seas...
