Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

What about the abandonedFA Cup gameagainst Bury where we were 2-0 down and on our way out . IIRC. Didn’t they present us with some forks afterwards as we had been unable to locate any to help drain the pitch... It rained like never before that night. Queuing to get into the South Bank and everyone ...

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

Pepe the Horseman If we withdraw the contract offer, does that mean we won't get any compensation?


If he's under whatever the age is, then we get compo no matter what contract negotiations did or did not take place.

Re: Reading players out of contract in summer 2020

NewCorkSeth Ugh. The Loader situation really does wind me up now. Why didn't we sell him when we had the chance? I'm so confused by the whole thing.


Perhaps Wolves didn't want to pay out knowing he'd walk on a free a few months later, or perhaps we were asking for too much.

Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

Boro at Elm Park 1997 (?) League Cup 1/4 final. Ref got bullied after we'd been given a free-kick, we all ran down for it, then he changed his mind and Boro may as well have walked the ball into the net. Still grinds with me. 1995 P/O final as well, as mentioned. McAteer is a c**t and FDF handballed...

Re: Interesting news article coming out of Yorkshire....

Doesn't affect us. The EFL cleared us of any wrong doing when selling the Madstad to the owners. Derby however vastly vastly over-priced their pudding bowl and deserve everything coming to them.

Re: The most charismatic/moronic fan we have or have ever had

Old Man Andrews We currently have some of the worst fans in English football, some of them are a complete disgrace at away games. Loud, rude and deeply, deeply unfunny.

Re: Season Ticket Refund?

A refund doesn't make business sense. The club should discount a season ticket renewal to ensure bums on seats - win-win for both parties.

Re: Rumour - Olise to Celtic

Known to Hammond? He left far too long ago to know next to anything about Olise other than scouting reports. It would be a sideways step in terms of level, but it would give him more exposure to use them as a springboard to something bigger and better. Just get a decent fee!

Re: Dave Kitson`s plan to oust Gordon Taylor

I don't think Kitson is racist, I think he's an opinionated twat with an inflated sense of self worth and some reasonably well documented mental health issues. He doesn't think before he speaks sometimes. He'd be a terrible PFA frontman for those reasons, much as I loved him as a player. And an exc...

Re: LOLiverpooLOL - Next Season

Why can't they just postpone this season until January 2021? It offers plenty of time for this to all die down and bring under control, and then we simply carry on where we left off. That way there's zero unfairness to anyone.

Re: Enjoying or hating the no football era?

Still not missing it, but with August a million miles away, I'm sure it'll kick in soon. Worse still if we don't get to watch any live games next season. I don't think it'll come to that though. We'll see at least half of next season. I'm expecting some level of social distancing to continue until t...

Re: Finance

Of all the suggestions, I love the "we should put less money as fans into the club to bring the wages down". You then attract a lesser quality player to the club, and ultimately play at a lesser level.

Re: Worst Reading Player

Hughes played with a lot of heart and would run all day, but was bang bang average. He was a modern day Karacan. Karacan was a brilliant player - energetic, great tackler, scored a few. I remember him saying on a podcast that Adkins told him we would’ve gone up in 13/14 if he’d stayed injury-free. ...

Would assume my remaining bundle tickets will rollover to the net season - even thought Ts & Cs say you forfeit them. Goodwill gesture by the club will encourage positive behaviour from supporters - the "tough shit you forfeit" response would make people think twice about spending. It...

Re: Dave Kitson`s plan to oust Gordon Taylor

I must have missed Kitson upsetting Raheem Sterling, but he's had to apologise again; and Tyrone Mings wants to chat with Kits. Have I missed some race fallout or something?

Re: 2019/20 Season - How will it end?

Latest rumour is that the season in the four professional divisions in England will completed but in a typical manner so as not to upset any team at the top of their division or in a relegation battle. Therefore promotion will still happen based on ppg ratio but relegation won’t. The League Cup nex...
