Re: Squad for 2020/21

Simmops If he wants to play in a serious competitive league and not the MLS he would have to drop his demands.

There's not a lot wrong with MLS these days. Good crowds, plenty of decent players, and I dare say the cities are probably nicer than the average Championship club's home town.

Re: The Non - League thread

Simmops My local team in the Isthmian league have folded as the council haven't let them stop their rent since football finished and they can't survive. Shame that is.

Which team is that?

Re: Roger Smee or John Madejski?

The Smee camp will be chock full of old boys like me who helped the club in its darkest hour. The Sir Mad camp overloaded with youngsters who only have memories of the souless bowl that carries his name. Perhaps in twenty years wev can have another poll discussing the merits of Lord Mad versus new ...

Re: STs for season 2019/2020

Just saw this. Say what you want about RFC but our club and owner give the fans a really good deal to encourage us to support the club and attend the games. Ridiculous pricing Really for National League football. Though gate receipts are much more important the lower down the leagues you go. https:...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Middlesbrough (h) sponsored by Chris Rea

And people are wondering why others are unsure of Bowen still :lol: Sit back on a 1-0 lead once again and lose the lead again! And repeat. He’s steadied the ship but it’s dire viewing, and he isn’t improving it in terms of that aspect I don't think Bowen's a great manager, but I do wonder why peopl...

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

Next season it the centenary of our League membership, although I'm not sure how a 1920/21 revival kit of navy stripes with navy shorts would go down with the fans.

Re: Next seasons kit choice?

With RFC being 150 years old next year, surely the club should be erring towards an anniversary shirt. Preferably shirt sponsor free too. Will be the season after, Macron confirmed in their press release, when the partnership was announced, they were aware of the anniversary and will be producing a...

I've seen suggestions that it's more of a Zingarevich situation, with the money from the 'buyer' not arriving, and they are looking to sell again.

Re: Wigan in Administration

windermereROYAL They`ve not conceded a goal in seven games and top of the form table so can see them getting out of this.

...which is possibly why they've done it. Stay up, and wipe out a lot of debt in one move. It's a gamble, but possibly one worth taking.

You can understand fans anger though. This isn't just a knee jerk reaction though......this has been going on for what seems to feel like an eternity to some of us.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Brentford (h) sponsored by end of season apathy

Brentford are every inch a premier league side, but that was pitiful from us. Bowen wasn't helped by a team that looks like they couldn't give the slightest toss , but he got everything wrong tonight. There HAS to be a Plan B w/out Joao fit and it CANNOT be 1 up front because we simply don't have a...

Re: Old Reading Footage on VHS/film/Youtube

This might be here already, but here's Steve Archibald's one game for Reading, v Huddersfield in 1992. He would have scored, had Trevor Senior not poked it over the line from about an inch out. Also, a Huddersfield player falls over taking a corner.

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

You can get extremely lucky with Cups and make it to the final whilst not being particularly good (Wimbledon, Milwall etc) While I agree with your point overall, I can never get why people maintain Wimbledon's win in '88 is one of the biggest cup upsets ever. They finished 7th in the first division...

Re: Players who virtually won us games/promotion/avoided relegation on their own

If you want to talk individual games, I'd probably opt for Steve Francis at Ipswich on the last day on the 86/87 season. We only drew, but that was possibly the best goalkeeping display I've seen. Didn’t Steve win the player of the season that year and he only joined part of the way through 86/87 d...
