Re: Opposition fans back from the game

If the description given on the Tilehurst End of Xg is accurate it isn’t a stat. It’s a subjective opinion wrapped up in smoke and mirrors to make it look meaningful. Yup, seems to be just mathematical window-dressing over the subjective "fat chance, good chance, how-did-he-miss-that chance&qu...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

Yeh, that's the thing. If people had watched our games, they'd know this is the case. But instead they see the stats and assume it's all luck. Not sure what algorithm the bookies use, because we're still 8/5 to beat Cov, whereas going by respective form and league position we should be odds on. Lon...

Re: What has changed so much from last season?

Lot of good sensible points I’d agree with, esp Joao fir, playing Laurenomhota rather than Swift at base of midfield, keeping. a settled team. But, and it’s not a nice thing to say, the absence of Gunter, McCLeary and Obita who all have seen too many bad times here, plus Blackett and Loader moving ...

Re: We will iFollow the Reading on laptop and TV

Happy to pay a tenner (although red button tonight). Let's face it, I'd probably already be in the boozer for a few pre-match pints, bus up to the ground, hot dog for Zammo jnr and half-time refreshments. Defo saving myself a few quid, this stadium ban lol. It's definitely saving me money, as I usu...

Re: We will iFollow the Reading on laptop and TV

Bit nonplussed by this. Assumed STAR were offering some sort of crazy deal to provide laptops / access to supporters who couldn't get the service. Instead it's just a PSA pimping it. Er, yeah. We know about it. It's discussed on here at length repeatedly. What a lame attempt at outreach. :| Yet at ...

Re: Lucas João Is 27!

I counted my son's age in weeks, and then months until he was older than 1 ... he definitely wasn't '0 years old' until his first birthday. Pepe you want to field this one? I couldn't work out whose side he was on tbh, although let's not let that distract us from the fact that you think £1.75 shoul...

Re: Ex Players

Pepe the Horseman Some of our fans seem to have a weird obsession with Lucas Piazon.


I think the fact that he responds every single time, helps keep it going tbh. Both sides should grow up and move on.

Re: Season 20/21

The more I read these interviews the more puzzled I get to working out why Paunovic did so badly in the MLS, he was seen as someone who added to the problems Chicago Fire had rather than improved their problems. Either he was the worst possible fit for them or that there’s a major problem in his ga...

Re: If you didn't support Reading, who would you have supported and why?

I've always liked watching live sport, but grew up watching Gaelic football, and a bit of hurling. We lived out of the range of the British channels, so saw very little soccer on TV, other than Ireland internationals and the occasional FA Cup game. But when I was maybe 9, Leyton Orient played Arsena...

Re: Rival Watch

Wycombe knew they'd struggle, this season is a bit of an adventure for them and it will be great experience for their younger players. They'll go down but will win a lot of friends along the way. Mainly because of the excellent Gareth Ainsworth. If they keep shopping goals and failing to score, the...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Ola John was a legend! Not bothered about this one slipping through the net. Could go either way, he could flop at AFCB as much as he's likely to do well for them. But I am concerned about us being under a soft embargo. I can see things going downhill very quickly if we can't bring in anymore reinf...

Re: Rumour - Rodrigo Riquelme

Don't remember the twitter reaction, I can imagine the kids getting giddy over us spending a load of cash, but on here I think the general consensus was why the fcuk are we spending that kind of money on a player we don't need. A bit of yes and no on that one, I think. Most recognised that he was a...

Re: Rival Watch

Derby have signed winger Jordon Ibe on a two year deal Could be a good signing for them, he’s still at a relatively young age and IIRC he’s had a decent loan spell there before According to Bournemouth fans he has serious off the pitch issues. May be a fresh start is what he needs..... Well, he's p...

Nevers seems to have disappeared, not seen any mention of him (or Dorsett/Lawless who seemed to be on the fringes of the first team last season) training with the first team or playing for the U23s?
