Caution, I would wait until the end of the game before making those sort of statements.

Re: Chant Lyrics

I remember Watford fans being upset at us singing that about Mariappa during the match when we scored the ghost goal. Ghost goal? It was in by a mile :D Yes, I was there and clearly remember the move, the style, the shimmy, the dummy that found the space, and the ball hitting the back of the net. T...

Re: Bowen, in or out?

It is, he isn't a football manager. Pretty obvious and you're massively in the minority amongst the wider fanbase. Enjoy being wrong. Is he though? Or is it a case of those who are unhappy are shouting the loudest and most frequently, when everyone else is happy just to move on to next season? See ...

Old Man Andrews
Hound The club is a shambles. He kept us up comfortably

It’s not even close to being a debate

Re: Biggest Reading FC injustices

I think Thames Valley’s mounted cavalry baton charge on over excited youngsters after we scored in the home leg of the Play Off semi final against Wigan was hard to justify. I’m not condoning pitch invasions, but it wasn’t that big and it wasn’t threatening, and it could have easily been dealt with ...

Re: Worst Reading games

Three games in quick succession v Walsall around 2000 and the cuptie with Welling in 1990 that dragged on over four games - both the games at EP were goalless. Two batches of awfulness. I remember the Welling cup ties and attended the 2 mind numbing home games. Welling were just trying to milk it f...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Old Man Andrews None of the suggestions can be taken seriously unless you have selected Paul Brayson up front.


He was certainly considered for a place in the starting line up but due to the amount of front men already in the team, I decided to put him on the bench.

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

AthleticoSpizz Wow ‘oldun’ way out of the usual tick box

But so true in most parts

Brilliant contribution ✔️



Thanks, but the sad thing was that i couldn't pull a player from Jack Mansell's very attractive footballing team.

Worst ever Reading FC X1

This is a team that will get you relegated all the way to league 2 or worse. All players selected need to have been part of the team. Picking a player that perhaps made an appearance in a 'Sherpa Van Trophy" cup tie does not count, these players have to have had a run in the team to be selected...

I was at Fratton Park early in the 76/77 season when Ray, now playing for us, hobbled off injured, to a massive ovation and chanting of his name from the Portsmouth Faithful.

Re: Finish the season, in 56 days?

The season has lost it’s momentum now. The campaign is a mess. Unfair advantages and disadvantages have been gained by various clubs with the closedown.
The best bet in my opinion is to call it a day on this season and hope that we can start again this coming August.

Yep. Very fond memories. I think the game was on a Sunday. We totally outnumbered the Luton fans that day. Hard to believe it was that long ago.


Agreed. Enough is enough. We’ve had it every year for 14 years now, no more.
