Re: Fulham (A)

Personally I'd set the ticket prices for away fans coming to Reading to match the prices that the club those fans support would charge Reading fans. So Fulham fans coming to the Mad Stad this season would be charged £25. Wigan fans charged £22, Rotherham fans £23 etc. Why would you do this :?: also...

Re: The King of Thailand

I think I've seen it advertised as our Remembrance fixture somewhere. It makes sense doing it as close to the 11th, whether that be before or after. Fixtures haven't been kind with the 11th weekend being internationals, so it's a bit of a tricky one. Lets hope that it happens and we don't just have...

I already have a pop up blocker on my PC but it seems ineffective against these annoying intrusions. Fortunately it does not happen on my iPad so I only access the site on that or my iPhone now.

Re: The King of Thailand

great shame that the club did not take the opportunity to honour the war dead at what was the last home game before armistice day. I'd imagine that will be the Burton match as it's the closest to the 11th. I hope that you are right but Everton and some other clubs in a similar position did it this ...

Re: The King of Thailand

So King Bhumibol of Thailand has died after a very lengthy reign, and until a couple of days ago i had never heard of him, and quite happy to spend the rest of my life having not known of him, along with just about every one in the UK including us folk in Berkshire. King Bum had absolutely no inter...

Re: Transfer Deadline Day - August '16

TBM We can still loan players in for another week remember


Not this year apparently

. When does the loan window end?
Unlike last year there is no separate deadline for clubs hoping to complete loan deals after August 31st.

Re: Brighton and Reading fans............

Checkatrade Trophy- Bristol Rovers Away 30th August 7:45

Couldn't see anything about ticket prices on the OS so asked the TO : We have not been sent an allocation of tickets by Bristol Rovers for this fixture. It will be pay on the gate only, with prices £5 for adults and £1 for both over 65's and under 16's. At those prices well worth a trip to the Memor...

Re: BFTG - Wimbledon away (pre-season friendly)

By the way, did anyone else having trouble with traffic? I know of one fan who only got there shortly before half time, only to find he couldn't get in, so he went home. Did he use Satnav. Traffic was avoidable. My sat nav made it worse! After being stuck on the M25 I decided to leave at the M23 fo...

Re: Beer season ticket

Whatever happened to those cards that you were going to be able to pre-load with cash which could then be used to buy shit in the concourse? They couldn't find anyone willing to buy faeces due to it being freely available, so they binned the idea. They trialed it in the UW(N) a few seasons back and...

Re: Evening kick-off time

I am certainly with you on this as I also do not get home from midweek games until after midnight. I cannot believe that there is any real difference in the traffic situation during those 15 mins and the later start often means that motorway night-time lane closures are in place by the time that I g...

Very sad. So much promise and then it all fell apart. RIP Anyone from that time able to give an insight as to why it didn't work out. Logically, after that first season, only a small amount of adjustment to the defensive side of the team should have been required to attain promotion? The following ...

Re: Green Park Match Day Parking

I usually park on Green Park if I drive (most games these days) and if they clamp down on no parking there I can see it being the final nail in my season tickets coffin. I could substitute my drive for public transport, probably a train and then a bus, but it will mean my 25 minute drive will becom...
