Re: messages to an Aldershot fan

Good luck to the Shots and congratulations.

However, I'd like to observe that a lot of their support look as though they should be working the fairs. Dodgems, mainly.

Swarthy b*astards.

Re: Imbecile convention

I was also in the RAT on Saturday. It is the human equivalent of HNA. Groups and cliques of generally like-minded (i.e. all supporting RFC) individuals, but with differing opinions. It is a familiar place to go on a match day, linking as it does beautifully with our old West Reading roots. It is a f...

I'm going to hum a few Tommy Trinder numbers, quietly. And maybe at half-time, I'll have a banana.

The longer my club has no history You write a good post, IH, but I disagree with this bit. Has Reading been recently formed? I'm sure we existed for 135 years. I guess I was writing in a somewhat jaded and sarcastic tone given the amount of patronising and ill-researched journalism that's been prod...

Glad there are similar thinkers in our ranks. There's just too much rubbish written and spoken about the consistently mediocre - not just in football these days but in most of life. It all seems to be about image and not about what is actually worked for or achieved. For crying out loud, I saw in th...

As usual a media interest in West Ham despite them being a club that never achieves much. They remind me of a bad tourist attraction. Madame Toussaud's, The Tower of London. A lack-lustre 'institution' with some worn-out cliches to go with it. 'Academy of Football' etc. Even what'shisface Gavin Peac...

Bloddy good report too Floyd. Like your style. Keep it up. Turn it into a book or something at the end of the season and flog it around the ground. Good acid sarcasm. What my mate would call 'old' Reading. (Wipes tear from eye).

Didn't worry about Man U (or the rest of the Prem to be honest) before we were up and don't now. Whether they beat us or not they are just another club with eleven players employed to do what ours are employed to do. Win. Are they wittier and noisier than us? If they win, maybe. More songs?

Being slightly old school I'm not really overly-interested in the opinions of the 'pundits'. Most of them have extended their association with the game through the slightly more parasitical mode of joining the media, which, once upon a time did appear to have some reasoned thought and considered opi...
