Re: MATCHWATCH : Derby County (a) sponsored by Yakubu

Watching us win 2-1 at the Baseball Ground in 1994 with our last fit 14 players (front two - Gilkes + Scotty Taylor, they both scored) remains one of my highlights as a loyal Royal.

Not that it adds much to the argument, but the £2m United gave to WBA was for Robson and Remi Moses

Re: Arriving to games late

We beat Palace 2-0 at Selhurst Park in 1995, we were already 1-0 up when I got in, and it was 2-0 shortly afterwards. This game was notorious at the time as Robert Codner bossed the midfield for us and Paul Holsgrove was outstanding playing as a sweeper, two facts which people familiar with those tw...

I took one of them cardboard glasses things with me that you can put your mobile telephone into. I hit play as our game kicked off today and I watched our 4-0 demolition of Stoke from 94/95. Fantastic performance. What a belter from Kerr. Agreed but they held us with relative comfort until the firs...

Re: Worst ever Reading Player

Steve Moran lived in same town as me met him on numerous occasions {Queens Head} its fair to say he didnt fancy it much. I once saw Steve Moran in Henley, it was just after he'd left us to sign for Exeter. It was 2.30ish Saturday am, slinging out time at Stallones, he was in front of us in the keba...

Re: Team with most ex Reading players at one time?

How many did McGhee sign at Wolves? Williams Gilkes Osbourne Taylor (I think Taylor might have joined after Gilkes left) edit - Keith Curle was there too When we beat them 2-1 in 1997, Gilkes and Curle were playing for them, and Williams and Osborn were at the club at the same time but didn't play....

Re: Smallest Attendance You've Been Part Of

I had a similar one to Ayjaydee - me and a mate went to watch the reserves play at Highbury. The first team match was off so Porterfield played the first team. Arsenal reserves had Hillier, Dickov and Tony Adams who was playing his first match since leaving prison. He was marking Super Trev, who sco...

Re: have we ever spent over the odds?

£½m for Sean Evers.

£700k for that right winger from York City was a lot as well, whatever his name was.

Re: FA Cup Final thread

bobbybottler Anyway, Wigan have so many out, and will be taking it easy in order to save themselves for their remaining Prem fixtures, plus Manchester City will need to win this to cover their league shortcomings - it's an obvious pick of Manchester City.

Glorious, I'm not going to let this one go.

bakerlou 15-Oct-94 was also against Bristol City.

Quinn 90 - good times.


Wasn't it Gilkes?

That was my first game at the Town End of the Southbank - happy days!

OK, that's a :oops: for me

Quinn had scored a (not as late) late winner against the Blunts earlier on that season.

Notts Co H L 1-3 - 1989 I assume that that was one of the BRANFOOT OUT invasions. Gr8 times. Oh yes, indeed. Great fun. There's something missing these days from clamouring around the players tunnel after dreadful performances and calling for the manager/chairmen's head. Perhaps Reading just aren't...
