Did you know the Royals are the only club in the Football League who don't have to change their away kit, due to being from the Royal county?

we change it every season.

I liked the one with quite a lot of green in it.

Haven't we lost more FA Cup ties than any other current league side?

Yes, I recall that fact except it was more cup exists, probably the same thing though - Only one other team were in the cup as long as us and they won it one year so we have indeed been knocked out more times than any other club.

Plus Preston North End as they were the first winners.

Both are just myths, Although Martin Allen did argue this to the ref at an away game after we turned up in hoops and there was a kit clash, I think we ended up wearing the home sides away kit turned inside out for that game.

It was away at Brighton before Allen's time. 92/93 I think. We had to play in Brighton's away kit due to the ref not wanting us to play in the blue and yellow hoops. Madejski went mad in the post afterwards about lost sponsorship for Auto Trader.

Knowing Martin Allen he probably did argue the case somewhere but can't recall that one

You remember a number of horrible orange away kits


One of the beat days out in orange was the 2000 / 2001 Division 2 Play-Off game at Wigan with 5,000 fans.

I think its a bit of a weird thing to feel much hatred towards if I am honest.

Hatred is the wrong word, and I know the Evening Post never exactly won any awards for journalism but I suppose it's more a sadness / realisation that traditional media has lowered to this.

On the other hand as it's the sort of thing that's posted on here, given my post count I can't be too high and mighty about it. What's good for the goose is good for the gander and all that.

Sure, I would think an indifference towards it is the right course of action here, it is certainly the one I am employing.

Well I got to listen to the Kevin Girder song again so the article (if you can call it that) was all good for me :D
