*The stand that they occupy is 3/4 full - fact.
*I have witnessed nothing you describe with regards to booing and slamming seats.
*Lame

Go back though the thread and there're countless examples of fans booing players, not giving their promised "always stick behind the team " and being negative.

They were loads of trouble makers In Club1871 swearing at fans and charging away fans too.



that doesnt back up your point. You are saying its a failed money experiment. You cant base that on posts here when there is an equal amount of posts and more saying its great.

So i will ask again, why is it a failure and why should it be scrapped?


I have already answered that

It is a failure and an embarrassment

I'd say recognising your problem is the first step to solving it dd, but we all know you can't manage that.

they are statements - with no facts. I could say that about absolutely anything.

Why is it a failure?

Why is it an embarrassment?

Gotta agree about last night, C1871 kept singing throughout which meant the Boro fans never really got going.

I think the fact you are getting so defensive about means I have touched a nerve, You must be the organizers uncle or something.

Not touched a nerve at all - but when you come up with sweeping statements like failure and embarrassment i am interested to know why, and i am still waiting.

Paul and Sims. As someone who has not made their mind up about club 1871, I would be grateful if you could BOTH state in up to six reasons why you think the enterprise has been a success (Paul) or failure (Sims).

There are some absolute idiots on here. I think club1871 is a brilliant idea to help improve the atmosphere in the ground. It’s a bit like a recreation of the south bank of Elm Park.

The vitriolic abuse on this thread is both hilarious and ridiculous. Sums up the use or social media / forums in a nutshell. Calm down people.

If most people were truly honest they could see both positives and negatives from Club1871.

Firstly, I must declare, I would probably be considered a plastic as I live nearly 80 miles away so can only come to the odd game, but managed my first Club1871 game v Bristol. I think this is a relatively good bench mark game as a) we lost, but b) there were a few good ups as we tried to get back in it.

Positives
Generally singing is full on for 75% of the game. (I concede it may be better in other games).
Great to have an official standing section.
Great to have official unreserved section.
Players clearly like it and having something to react to.
It can put off oppo fans.
Positive vibe is nice and makes a change at Reading after all these years.

Negatives

Bristol game songs were seriously limited, repetitive and became dull so many gave up. However - I have heard much more when not sitting in club 1871, so expect it was just a bad day at the office.

The move to the right (other side of the stand) has meant those in Y26 have simply moved into Club 1871 so they can be nearer away fans. Noise in Y26 has therefore died and is just an extension of 1871. This is a shame as 2 loads of noise + north stand drummer and kids was good

Any numpty climbing on a seat barrier, or piling towards the other side of the stand to berate oppo fans demonstrates he (and it is always a he) isn't there for club1871 values. Therefore you can argue it has failed! Why is he there? - Save it for away games when you have the chance to look like a prat and get on the BBC website.


In my opinion the positives FAR outweigh the negatives and I applaud those who got Club1871 going and continue to work with the club. Congratulations.

However, I think the other side of the south was better as it truly spread the sound around the stadium and allowed Y26 to retain it's mentality.

I enjoyed my night out - but I'm getting old so I think I'll return to a quiet spot where I can clap along with the North stand drummer. I'm also far too much of a cynic to be positive for a whole game.

Appreciate every fan on here that is able to go regularly and backs the boys when I can't. As always, proud to be a Reading fan and anything that backs the team is good in my book!!! Congrats Team 1871!
