Re: The effect of the break

I reckon it could have a little of a negative effect on the side. We were having a little run before the break. Maybe it might be like a lengthened international break. Like OP said, we're safe, but only 6 behind the play-offs. Maybe those sides in the play-offs might falter. We will see when we ge...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

None of the suggestions can be taken seriously unless you have selected Paul Brayson up front. Hit the nail on the head. One goal in 42 appearances (albeit some as sub). Brayson is THE first name in the team. Kromheer from that era also. And back to circa 1990...Mark Whitlock, Karl Elsey and Paul F...

Re: Best XI in your lifetime. (Excluding the 106 team)

Jason Roberts (6 goals in total for RFC) beats Friday, Senior, Dixon etc to make the BEST EVER RFC XI ????? I am assuming this is a massive woosh. Apologies for taking the bait. Not a whoosh. Roberts was much, much more than just goals and took a decent squad by the scruff of the neck and dragged u...

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

Supporting RFC ? My Dad took me (first time was pre-decimalisation, so before Feb 1971). Therfore, circa 1970. Nearest team ? Born and bred in Reading. Lived in Tilehurst for many many years....Reading FC are simply MY team, absolute no-brainer. Currently on 40th consecutive season with a season tic...

Linden Jones' Tash Germany has 3 X more ICU beds per head of population than the UK also


Is that because they put towels on them ?


Shameful chuckle.


Cheers Hendo. I was just trying to bring a tiny bit of humour to, I know, what is a horrible and serious situation.

Re: Worst crowd

177 from Wigan I believe so that’s 9,911 Reading fans. Are we including non-attending season ticket holders in our attendance numbers these days? I don’t think we are. When we played Sheffield Utd a couple of years ago the attendance was less than 7000. We surely had more than 7000 STH’s both then ...

Re: Worst crowd

Football clubs HAVE to report the ticket sales for a game. So for every home game, all season ticket holders (whether they turn up or not) are counted. So Saturday's gate will be more than the Wigan gate: The usual ST holders... Barnsley will bring more than Wigan... No Sky red button... Can't see i...
