Re: Biggest Disappointment !!! this season ??

Bringing back McDermott...... I honestly hope that I am proved wrong but I am not convinced that he is the man to mould together a team and help it find it's identity. I know he has been one of our most successful managers in the past but were most of the foundations already put in place by Pardew a...

Re: Your General Feeling Towards The Club?

Positive For me you can't beat supporting your home town club. I have hated the relegations and loved the promotions over the past 40+ years but wouldn't swap any of it with a Man U or Arsenal fan. I have been disappointed that we have never made a real go of staying in the premiership like Bournemo...

Re: Reading FC - this is embarrasing

I quite like it to be honest. I think we should turn it around and use it as a strength. A bit like Leeds fans singing "we're not famous anymore". We could take the piss out of ourselves and sing something along the lines of "if you're cheesy and you know it clap your hands"... S...

Re: RUMOUR - Robert Beric

I can't see Beric wanting to come here. I really hope we have a plan B, C and D.

I haven't seen enough of Sa to comment yet but the rest of the strikers are league 1 or 2 standard at best.

Although saying that I would love Blackman to prove me wrong, as I still think he has the talent.

Re: Rumour-Potless

To be honest if SC had £2m - £3m to spend I couldn't see him saying so to the media. So we don't really know what sort of budget the club has. This window has already exceeded my expectations, so any further signings would be a real bonus. Interesting the People are saying today that a deal for Beri...

Re: How long?

SC still needs to prove himself as does every manager but for me the test starts this season. Last season he inherited what was mainly BMs team with a few additions from NA and no money to spend. For the last couple of seasons I have come away from a lot of games thinking how on earth did we win tha...

Re: Pre-season Friendlies

I have only been to one friendly, Bristol Rovers away, and to be honest I would just take them all with a pinch of salt. I still believe we will struggle this season and and I am still not convinced by SC. My moans are we don't seem to sign many players that are fit, or can play straight away. There...

Re: Rumour - HRK

Good luck HRK. Swansea is a good club with a very good owner/manager. One of the best youngsters we have had at this club, even if a bit frustrating to watch at times. Personally, I would take HRK over Jamie Mackie every time, he has bags more potential and Mackie is a one trick pony whose legs will...

I give up worrying about it. I have my season ticket and what will be will be.

Re: Thai owners

I can't help thinking that if the owners don't have money for new players then they would be bothering with the tour to Thailand etc. I hope that after witnessing the FA cup semi final last season they saw the potential of the club. I always believed that a competitive Reading team in the Premiershi...

We won't be signing anyone.

For the last 3 years the club have dropped hints about signing players to boost season ticket sales.

Re: Early Expectations for 2015/16?

I am not expecting 2015/2016 to be a great season. I am not convinced about Clarke and other than Rotherham, I don't see too many other relegation candidates. The 3 teams that came up all look decent and the ones that got relegated will all throw money at it. However, the Championship is always full...

Re: BFTG - Brentford

This game and the Birmingham game were similar in the that we we played some decent football at times with no end product.
