Criminal he has got a club. Can't remember the game last season when Tom Mac and him were the two centre halves and played like seasoned pros.... I thought: "There's the future of RFC....." Sounds like he's been very poorly advised by his agent based on pre-Covid greed. Just needs to get a...

Re: If you didn't support Reading, who would you have supported and why?

I'm ashamed to admit it but probably Pompey as I was born in Gosport dockyard and saw my first ever games at Fratton Park where my grandfather was a life president and my Ma and grandma were STHs. Failing that, Charlton coz my old man was born a couple of stones throws from the Valley and lived the ...

My iFollow 'season ticket' renewed on 1st September for GBP 140 squid. As I'm usually located overseas, it has represented decent value with live streaming of all (most) matches that are not selected for TV (and which I have then been able to watch on BeIn - or BeOutQ :D ) As I have been in the UK b...

Re: Dai Yongge in trouble with Chinese government

English football - and specifically the Prem - is a global business. The EPL only wants to maximize its revenues through (predominantly) broadcasting rights, while every ne'er-do-well (guns, drugs, slaves through to a little light corruption) globally wants to wash its dirty money (except Norway, of...

Re: Playoffs 2019/20

I bet the TVP are rather hoping that it's the Chairboys and not the Pox.

Every Nobber should be hoping for the latter .... now if only we had our real derby with the Sh*ts in a non-descript cup.

Absolute mirror image of the goal conceded against Stoke..... Zonal might work if you mark all the zones.... no challenges, two soft headers. Sunday League shite.

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

Great options from RFC and I would hope most STHs will take the iFollow option or donate to the foundation. A refund just seems churlish - except, of course, for those who are feeling real hardship as a result of the coronas. The club still hasn't answered my question, though, as an overseas fan and...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Steve Blatherwick has to be the worst defender I've ever seen in a Reading shirt Ooo, that's a good call. Thinking about it, Colgan would be my GK. He was utterly inept - like so bad my ninety year od mother with her Weinstein-esque walker would be more mobile and kick further - on that fateful 'Ta...

Ha, just said to myself: "There's Bruce Stuckey and Tommy Youlden...." but I think you're right, Lux, it may be Gary Peters.

Re: Ray Hiron

Another sad day. I remember seeing Ray Hiron in many of the RFC home games. He was often the 'out' ball for mad Robin.

Surpised he 'only' played 114 games in the Hoops and notched 14 goals. My senility suggests that he scored more than that.

RIP Ray.

Re: What got you into supporting RFC?! And when you did who was your nearest team?

For me no prior connection to the club whatsoever, only locality and the principle of "support your local team" which I have done since my first game aged 6, Fred May's testimonial on 2 October 1974, which I still remember vividly - the smells (bovril, cigars, liniment), the floodlights, ...
