Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Rather irrationally it really annoys me when it's quoted that the point at Leicester got us promoted. Not true as a defeat would still have seen us promoted given Leeds failure to beat Stoke at home and Watford losing at home to Millwall http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/eng_div_1/4819702.st...

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Never forget that Asaba scored the goal that got us promoted to the Premier League. Well, Kevin Doyle scored the goal for us in 2006 and Mikel Leigertwood scored the goal in 2012. If Asaba scored a goal somewhere on those days that meant another team couldn’t catch us, then sorry, that does not qua...

Re: The 'they never played for Reading, did they?!' XI

Good selection.

What about Yakubu, Chris Baird, or Ulises de la Cruz?

Re: Most nondescript XI

Would perhaps throw Joe Mills into the mix, although IIRC he was slightly unlucky in his brief spell here Jake Taylor was a bit meh too, would put him with the likes of Ryan Edwards Joe Mills is a good shout but he’s competing with Marcus Williams at left back and Alex Smith on the left wing. Jake ...

Re: Ngel Howe on radio

Definitely wouldn’t rush to judgement. Historically we’ve employed a few players who used their wages to support charities in their home countries. We don’t know if perhaps one or two players are holding out because they think bleeding a couple of rich Chinese people and their rich British football ...

Re: Ngel Howe on radio

The bit about selling Teddy so he didn’t feel conflicted is a kick in the teeth. Imagine if Middlesbrough had release Ben Gibson for the same reason, or if Maradona hadn’t called up Aguero when he was Argentina manager. I’m not one of the Gunter haters but it’s hard to see where we’ll find a full ba...

Re: Worst Reading games

Hendo Yeovil home when 3 players for Yeovil got sent off.

Nah that was great entertainment.

What about our string of 0-0s with Watford? Or that time Chalobah played centre back?

Re: Worst ever Reading FC X1

Got to be looked at in the context of transfer fees. So: Craig Maskell. Record signing who was ok, but nowhere near as good as he should have been. And replaced Deano "Dean" Horrix I think so was always onto a loser. Carl Asaba. Record signing. Wasn't terrible but he was no Jimmy Quinn. L...

Re: Finance

Every time a club wants to buy or sell something, they have to flip a coin. If they call it right then the item is free. They can then choose to go double or nothing.

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

Obviously there is only room for one player in goal Just a little surprised that Marcus barely features, but then, Reading has always seemingly been blessed (with of course, the odd exception season) in this position Death Francis Martinez Ali Marcus Feds Mc anon and on At risk of biting/being whoo...

Re: Old season ticket holder.

The current stadium announcer is routinely cringe-inducing but that doesn’t affect my enjoyment of the whole experience. If anything I find the occasional “new” gaffe to be a great bit of light relief. Think the music has been much better over the past few years. The combo of “Ashes”, the anthem, an...

Programmes - as someone who likes to collect them, especially for grounds ive not been to before. Reduce the size by half and cut the cost to £2 if that.

Re: Finance

- It would probably be got around using other forms of payment such as performance bonuses, image rights payments, and so forth. You could see players simultaneously employed as “football consultants” or some such. . This wouldn’t happen. Take a look at the rules for the rugby cap. It covers a wide...
