Reading fc moment of the decade

by Simmops » 21 Dec 2019 08:30

What is your moment of the decade? It could be anything you think has been a great moment for the team or you personally.

Beating Liverpool?
Fa Cup Semi final?
Promotion?
Spanking Cardiff in the PO semi finals?

For me I would have to say the one moment that stands out for me, for no other reason then it has just been engraved into my brain, is seeing Gunnarson nutmeg a Liverpool defender and cross it for a great goal for us to win. I was on holiday in a bar and had my Reading shirt on in a sea of Liverpool fans.

Another great moment was beating Southampton 3-1 with Alfie scoring 2. That was a great game.

What are yours?

McAnuff’s goal at Cardiff was a good moment and would probably top it because I was convinced we’d lose after the poor first leg

Other standout moments:
Being battered by Brighton and Southampton away yet still getting 6 points from 6

Yann’s against Fulham

Getting to an FA cup SF and then QF in successive seasons

Bristol away 2017

Noel Hunt turning the game on it’s head right before halftime at Upton Park in 2012. Absolute carnage in the stands.

Loved the Gunnarson-Long goal at Anfield

It was a brief fine moment but The Big Russian's header at Chelsea was awesome

McAnuff's dribble at Anfield

SOCKGATE!

This is incredibly easy.

Jobi running up to the Camera and grabbing it after the whilst blew against Forest, screaming "are we up!?" as thousands of fans invade the pitch, and then wheeling off in jubilated madness.

Legend.

That's a good call and the end of an era in many respects. We're still paying for the shit decisions made in the aftermath.

Sockgate was brilliant because there were a number of my friends in the away end who would have been miserable that afternoon which made it all the sweeter.
Alf’s late late show v Chelsea was special too as it meant I won a bet that a few minutes earlier was odd on lost.

Football at its best, two teams attacking each other rather than some of the turgid stuff now

I wonder how we’d have coped if we’d have gone up that season with Long in red hot form

Probably about as well as Norwich are coping right now.

Yeah that game just shades Liverpool away.
Kebe was an unsung hero for me that night the cross for Roberts goal and the ball for Le Fondre were divine.

Funnily enough, after 20 games in the 2012-2013 season, Reading had 13 points, which is exactly what Norwich have now, also after 20 games.
