Re: Thanks Noel

It's all been said really. I'll remember the exciting first half of the 2008-9 season when he really linked up well with Doyle.

See ya Hunty, we'll miss ya I reckon...

Worst Points per game season since WWII

It's official, this is our worst points per game season (if you use the 3 points for a win system) since World War II. Even if we win our last three games our ppg will be 0.89. Our previous worst season was 0.91 in 1998. It's also almost certainly the least wins we've had in a season since WWII. We ...

Which was the worst relegation and why?

Reading have been relegated 7 times since the Second World War. I've experienced three of those relegations as a fan. 1)1998 when we got thumped every week and were awful 2) 2008 when we had a decent team and shouldn't have got relegated but we did 3) This year when we've been poor all season long b...

Re: Were we spoilt in 2007?

I agree with all that. But there was a lot of bullish optimism on here in the summer. Many seemed to think we had a good chance of survival. This season has been an eye-opener. We need to be a lot better when we come back up.

Archie's penalty So were our expectations of the premier league raised unnaturally by our experience in 2006-7?


No - cos we were relegated the season after


True but our expectations were unnaturally high that season too.

Were we spoilt in 2007?

We now know that we will be relegated this season, this will mean our second relegation in three premiership seasons. In the other season (2006-7) we finished eighth, yes eighth and surprised the league with our, spirit, verve and determination. We won 16 games, more than 2007-8 and 2012-3 (so far) ...

Re: Would we have stayed up if Kebe had stayed fit?

Interesting response in the poll chaps. I don't think anyone can deny he's our most dangerous player, indeed he was the only player in our side that premiership teams
feared. Oh well.

Would we have stayed up if Kebe had stayed fit?

I think it's no surprise that our attacking threat has almost entirely disappeared since Kebe got injured. So simple question, could we have stayed up if Kebe had stayed fit?

Re: Southampton match thread sponsored by Trevor Morley's he

Big Ern Team selections really is akin to rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. No real quality anywhere in the squad with maybe the exception of Kebe. To be honest we never look like scoring from open play when Kebe is out.


This ^^^^

And I was right then? Oh well.

Archie's penalty I can't watch this, it's driving me mental, we are atrocious. Switching off for about the 10th time this season, just can't take it anymore.

Wake me up in August.

No, I just forgot how fkking hopeless it's been this season. Now I remember.

Re: Southampton match thread sponsored by Trevor Morley's he

Nice to see Gunter's positional play is still terrible, either that or he wants to be a centre back. Seems the defence are playing much higher up the pitch than under Brian. We will certainly need to add pace to our back line for next season if this is the way we will play in the future. Yep Morris...
