Re: If Reading didn’t exist

When I lived in London.I usually went to QPR.Bowles,Francis,Masson,et al. Saying I supported them would be a bit of stretch. Always a good crack there in the seventies and worth going just for Stan. I use to drink in The Swan near Hyde Park,and you would occasionally see them in there. Had to laugh ...

Re: Nostalgia thread

I loved Elm Park,even though it was pretty decrepit. My first game as a very young lad was against Portsmouth.Jimmy Dickinson and Ron Saunders. My favourite game was either thrashing Wet Sham or beating Liverpool. I was surrounded by Liverpool fans in work.The following day in work,I let them stew f...

Re: BFTG - Luton

Yes Luton were the worst team to visit the Mad Stad in a very long time,but they did have a system;it was just on numerous occasions they made some pretty crass errors. We on the other hand were with the odd exception very good. Quite where we are exactly will be determined in the next two games. IM...

Gunter must be peed off big time.He has probably two or three years left and nobody is interested in taking him on.He has already wasted a big chunk of this season.

Re: Ade Williams

From what I remember, Kits did not say he didn't like Sidwell, only that they didn't get on, there is a difference. Sidwell, in his podcast said that they just had their own circle of friends. (different card schools on the coach home?) Doesn't make sense though aren't they both ginger? Kitson did ...

Re: How times change

I think the problem is that we all watch the Prem and Europe on telly,then go to an actual Championship game and get frustrated by our lack of quality in comparison. I admit It is unfair marking player performances down when making that comparison. That said even when we are shite I still really enj...

BFTT - QPR (A)

What an appalling refereeing performance,which could have had a huge effect on the game. We started really well,when Ejaria was on fire;we then had a very poor 50 minutes,before coming back strongly at the end. A good result however. IMHO Rafael 6 No chance on the goals,but apart from that had littl...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Queens Park Rangers (a) sponsored by an Ingimarsson header

Old Man Andrews Think it is time to bring in Gunter for the very poor Andy Yiadom.


You can do better than that.

Re: BFGT Preston (H)

Yes I was baffled by how poor Preston were. Apart from once when we were wide open 2nd half they never looked dangerous. Not happy with three at the back,as our LH side was wide open,particularly in the 1st half.But heh ho. We had far more decent shots and chances than they did,and they were happy t...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Preston North End (h) sponsored by a new hope

Surely Gunter can’t be starting ?
Baldock deserves a go.
Maybe Macca on the bench however.

Re: GOMES OUT!

The squad is good enough for a mid table finish. Whilst I agree the players are underperforming,the problem has to be laid squarely at Gomes and his staff’s door. Maybe the moment he couldn’t get Baker back,he knew he was doomed and couldn’t play the control system he wanted. The managerial change h...

Re: GOMES OUT!

Forgotten about Hughton,he has never failed at any club,and would be an excellent choice.
The Clubs that have sacked him had ambitions beyond their grasp.
Yes please.
Whether he would come for £300k pa,remains to be seen.A couple of performance bonuses might sugar the deal though.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Bristol City (a) sponsored by hopeless causes

Like most Reading supporters I cannot understand what’s wrong with Moore.When he first arrived he was a one man army,then Wet Sham became interested and when that fell through his form collapsed.It was ditto last season,perhaps he was waiting for a Prem move.What he didn’t realise was that he was so...

Re: GOMES OUT!

I actually think we have passed the point of no return with Jose. If after ten games you could see a progression,even if we had the same results,I would keep him.Sadly however we are regressing and Gomes is making the same old,same old mistakes. Mark Hughes would not be a bad shout.Yes I know he’s n...
