Re: The Non - League thread

Frome doing themselves absolutely no favours at at all going down the 'open letter' route. Slagging the FA off in public before they get a chance to respond, in the hope of special favour? That's hardly going to gain an sympathy from them, is it? The same rules are there for everyone and plenty of o...

Re: The Non - League thread

Going to Ascot v Camberley tomorrow. Looks like Sandhurst Town at Larges Lane the only other game you can go to at Step 6 or above in Berkshire. No doubt FoC will have the full gen!

Re: The Non - League thread

Trying to work out where we are actually allowed to go on Saturday. Ascot are at Home for example, is that "In your Area" if you are Wokingham? Ive no idea where the boundaries are.

Using the T&T App might not be a great idea if any doubts.

Re: The best game you've ever seen?

Maybe the real answer to this is Portsmouth 7 Reading 4?

There was also the 6-4 win at Exeter and the 6-4 loss at Spurs.

The Spurs game was nuts and might well have been the best of the lot. The wrong result, but possibly the best match we have ever been involved in.

Re: The Non - League thread

Went to Wokingham 4-0 Woodley United Same bloke (No.10 – didn’t have a team sheet) scored all 4 and didn’t take the pen (that was missed) shortly after the 4th. He’ll be regretting that, probably never get the chance to score 5 again. Hosts severely depleted by all accounts but won at a canter. Gate...

Re: The best game you've ever seen?

I think all of my top 3 didn't involve Reading: 1. Milan 3-4 Inter October 2006 2. England 2-2 Argentina World Cup 1998 3. Germany 1-5 England 2001 The top 2 I travelled to without tickets and went via touts outside the ground. Something you really cant do now and just adds a bit more to the overall...

Re: The Non - League thread

Loads of clubs making a huge fuss. 2 things to note 1. The next lot of restrictions last 2 weeks. A lot of clubs dont have a fixture in week 1 anyway. 2. For Tier 2, Im sure that getting 2-3 times your usual gate will more than cover lost beer sales. Just sell soft drinks and food outside. No doubt ...

Re: Fragments of Elm Park

Oh what I'd give for just one more afternoon on the Southbank :( I know. Especially on a wet Saturday afternoon, muddy, greasy top, rain hissing down on to the pitch, drips coming through the roof, crazy crazy people standing on the Tilehurst End regardless, away fans suffering the chant of ' you'r...

Re: Fragments of Elm Park

Oh what I'd give for just one more afternoon on the Southbank :( I had a very vivid dream fairly recently that we were back there for one game. A spent the whole time having a go at all the younger fans for bringing their modern chants into Elm Park and that they had " completely ruined it&quo...

Re: The Non - League thread

Royals and Racers Maidenhead remain 4th after a goalless draw at Aldershot tonight. A good win for Hungerford 3-1 at Slough lifts them into 2nd place in National league south.


Even more remarkable when you consider both teams were basically spared relegation due to lockdown.

Re: The Non - League thread

58 Sandhurst Town 2-6 North Greenford United I did this as well, safe play. I thought i saw you (tall with hat?) on the far side 1st half and very nearly said hello. But can you imagine asking "Hi, are you FoC?" and then it wasn't? Id sound like an old cold war spy gone mad. I was just a ...

Re: The Non - League thread

Weather set to be an issue tomorrow lunchtime, so keep 'em peeled for late call offs.

Combined with covid call offs and M4 closure adding to traffic through Bracknell/Handycross, its not easy at the moment! Might just stay local.

Re: Best Player in the World Ever

I'd vote for Maradona personally.

I think he is the only player ever to more or less single handedly carry a team to win the World Cup and the best domestic league in the world.

Re: The Non - League thread

Winchester City won 2-1 away at Cinderford tonight, and go fourth, after a couple of disappointing results lately. Taking that with the Reading result, I'm a happy bunny tonight. More locally, Basingstoke Town got their first won at their new ground - 3-0 against Mangotsfield. Mangoes are normally ...

Re: The Non - League thread

Utterly embarrassing result for Maidenhead United. Their attitude in cup games since promotion has been appalling, like they just don't give a stuff. Same last season v Halesowen in both matches. Ive not seen highlights, but the performance of the home goalkeeper was so bad and out of character it ...
