Re: 90s Man U vs 20's Royals.

It'll be interesting to map the academy outputs to the who was running it, who the first team manager was, what league we were in etc, who the owners were I think McDermott having worked at the academy and knowing that crop of players meant he knew they were good enough for the first team, plus thin...

Re: Deadline Day

morganb Do you think that the money saved on bringing in new players and loans now will be ploughed into renewing the contracts of the talent we already have?
Not right now, unless we have a star player out of contract at the end of the season.

Re: MATCHWATCH : Coventry City (h)

HNA? in the 2000's Don't you think we could use the same match report for the last three Reading v Coventry games at the madhouse?
We take the lead without playing well, Coventry look a very poor side, come out in the second half like a team transformed, 2-1 the final result.

Re: Ayub Timbe.

Already under contract to the Yonge’s Chinese club so not sure what the references to buy out clauses aren’t all about. +1 I imagine the transfer fee and clauses may be more a case of where the owner wants the money to go for tax and financial fair play reasons, in fact if the another club the owne...

Re: Should Reading change our club crest...

All the uproar across Everton & Port Vale about changing there club crests has got me thinking. Everton said their old crest was badly represented on TV, tablets and in computer games. It was also difficult to replicate, which led to a change. The Everton fans are not fans of this of course, an...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

I reckon much easier back then, European Cup was for champions of each league only and the draw I believe was like the FA Cup now; ie no seeding and home/away legs; so if you messed up against a weak side you had another leg to rectify it. In their other final, Forest played FC Malmo - could never ...

Re: Opposition fans back from the game

How long is a long time? Stoke, Southampton and Bournemouth all had or are having fair periods of top flight football but don't think anyone would consider them big clubs. West Ham also comes to mind. Will Wolves ever be a big club for example? Reckon they are one manager change away from dropping ...

Car Park - First games back

Anyone heard anything about the car park for these first games back? I usually catch a footy bus to the ground, but being in a tin box on wheels with other people is probably a risk I wouldn't want to take, but if there is car park capacity available at a price, I imagine those who are fortunate to ...

Re: Back to the Mad Stad

They should not award points for those who attend these first games back as that will only make the gap between those rich in points and those poor in points bigger.

I speak as someone with 4,110 points.

Re: Time to drop Rafael?

Isn’t it funny how our memories are only as good as the last few games? 7 points clear at the top, best defensive record in the country, some great saves and we were discussing how much a decent keeper adds to our success. A few games of horrific defending, errors pretty much all across the back 5 ...
