Re: Matt Miazga

Hound Appaz spotted in Reading again today

Twice in a couple of weeks....

Assuming he isn’t here for the culture or the sights


I've just googled Appaz to see which club he currently plays for.... :oops:

Re: whats your favourite save of all time

Never quite felt the love with Peter Shilton. I always thought Pat Jennings to be the best goalkeeper of that era (70s/early 80's). Not a favourite save as such but the best performance by a goalkeeper I have ever seen was by a chap called Trevor Dance for Port Vale against us at Elm Park. Would hav...

Re: Piazons time at Reading

Winston Smith Possibly the physically weakest player I have ever seen in person. If the wind blew he fell to the ground.

Simply don't think he has the heart to make it at a decent level.


I take it you don't remember Nigel Vaughan?

Re: Worst Keeper

Anyone remember Colin Court? Made one appearance as an emergency in the early 80s home to Swindon, never seen again. Scored an own goal and was basically hopelessly out of his depth. I would say that, technically, he was the worst goalkeeper ever to wear the No.1 shirt, outfield players aside. Can'...

My company sponsors the club and has a small number of STs in return. I was offered their use to get our...

Re: When was the last Football Special?

Can only remember ever going on two specials, Hereford away in the cup (as previously mentioned but we did have several shots including one by Ray Hiron in the last minute that shaved the post) and Swansea away in the FA Cup circa 1979 where we got thumped 4-1, got chased back to the station and th...

Staff not paid at RFC

I always take something I've heard third hand with a large dose of salt but I'm told staff at Reading weren't paid on Friday. I can't verify that and I don't know if that includes players and/or backroom staff so it can be no more than idle gossip on my part. Any activity before the end of the trans...

Re: Oliver Holt

I didn’t know he had been released by Crystal Palace and Brentford earlier in his career. I didn’t know Reading manager Steve Coppell had put him on the bench match after match after match. I didn’t know he had set a record for how many times he came on as a substitute and that Bobby Convey, the ma...

As rumours go it's a tenuous one but an old and now retired colleague of mine who is a STH at Chesterfield tells me there is lot's of gossip in those parts about Jimmy Ryan coming to us in January.

Just a thought but I wonder if AZ is allowed back into the country and that is at the root of the problem?
