Why have they got any stupid roundabouts anyway (except for the buses to u-turn at) ? 330+ days of the year there's not enough traffic to justify them. During matches, foot traffic predominates and roundabouts are irrelevant. Some highway engineer can't engage brain enough to think what the stadium ...

I'm with the 'it all evens out over a season' brigade for league matches, but I do think that they should provide extra assistance to assist refs for cup games (Incl World Cup finals etc), where one dodgy decision can be the death of a team. It doesn't have to be technology. It could be, for instanc...

Nicky Shorey in Team of the Season

Forgive me if some other thread with a totally irrelevant title has already said this but: Two of the five Independent 'Football Experts' (?) put Nicky Shorey in their Prem Teams of the Season. As the only left back with two mentions, he wins, and with the other ones being Patrice Evra, Gael Clichy ...

If the new station is built in time, I will almost certainly use that for my journey home to Bas. However, as the pre-match ritual includes beer and food in Reading town centre and it seems unlikely that the trains will be that useful for getting from there to the stadium before a game. So it's poss...

The Basingstoke line was re-signalled during the Basingstoke blockade over Easter this year. You would hope that Network Rail allowed for the Green Park station in that (but I wouldn't put money on it !). However that new signalling means they can stuff more trains down the line, which means they ca...

Are there any station shuttle buses tonight (reserves final) ? Seeing how they've sold 4000 tickets.

Wrong.

I have a source permanently listening in to conversations in the Hobgoblin who has revealed that it's a dastardly plot hatched by Reading Transport to take over the Park and Ride from First Buses.

Stadium Parking Full

Is the club encouraging sustainable transport by leaving the 'Car Park Full' sign permanently on the A33, or is it just trying to create more space for permit holders ?

Thanks everyone for your observations and experiences. I became a bit confused because the Bas bus seemed to fall off the publicity radar after it was first announced. It's there OK on the Stagecoach website now, but I couldn't see the actual bus when I went in search at the Madstad just before the ...

Basingstoke Bus

Can anyone confirm that the Basingstoke to Madstad bus actually exists? We tried waiting for it for the Aston Villa game (after having done the timetable arithmetic), but resorted to the train when it was 10 minutes beyond the theoretical schedule. When Network Rail entirely demolish the Basingstoke...
