Poll is just annoying because he thrives to be the centre on attention. He does make his fair share of woeful decisions too, but then do most refs. Roger Milford was the best ref - bring him back. Apart from the 91 Cup final of course. "Alright Gazza, calm down. I'll let you off that chest hig...

All this bitching about Ref's pisses me off.

Anyone on here tried reffing a match? Or want to become a Ref for that matter?

Whatever, you think of them, the Ref's we get this season are the best there are. Well, bar Urriah Rennie. He's just there to keep the PC bregade happy. :wink:

Think you mean Sidwell. and it was outside the box. My view was that Sidwell got 'squizzed' off the ball & ended up stumbling on to the back of a defender. Decision could have gone either way. Poll had an OKish game today i thought. The biggest wrong decision of the game went in our favour.

Game poised at 0-0, Marcus makes a great save & quickly makes a great throw/kick to set up a counter attack & we go 1-0 up. How many times did this happen last season? obviously down to dodgy keeping and awful distribution. oh and i suppose it was suspect positioning that meant he failed to...

David Byrne played for us on loan in 91/92. He was pretty useful.

Appointed Assistant to Sturrock today at Swindon.

Who was the keeper who just turned up with his boots at Leeds for the League Cup 1/4 final? It was Steve Sutton, wasn't it? No ive just remembered his name. Eric Nixon. You know what, you're probably right. They both played one game for us that season. that was the infamous season when we fielded s...

Who was the keeper who just turned up with his boots at Leeds for the League Cup 1/4 final? Kenny Brown just seemed to come & go as he pleased. Some guy called Brook who played for Spurs in the 81 Cup Final? Gary Brook i think? We had him on loan in 1991 when he was fcking crap. Came with anothe...

I am resigned to the fact that we will always have music after goals. But why can't we have something different ? Id like to see different music depending on who scores. eg If Lita scores they can play the music for DA DA DA DA, LEROY LITA. Like we sing for him anyway. That might encourage fans to ...

When shorey scored on sunday i reckon about 80% of the people were 'dancing' to Tom Hark. An on line poll voted by a tiny minority of Reading fans is hardly a worthwhile guide. I dont like because its so unoriginal. But it seems most others are still content with it. If they get rid of it they will ...

We'v scored goals from all over the pitch again this season. Shoot me down if you want but, I can't say we're missing Kitson..... We've scored less than a goal a game since he picked up the injury. And since the Boro game the total goals scored by his replacement? None. So id say we have missed him.

Good news, but i think we will still be on the look out for another striker.

If we're succesful, I have the feeling Leroy will be on his way in January.

Are you allowed to wear those yellow bibs for Sunday morning games?
