"Those long balls from the back are so annoying. Why can't we revert to the passing and keep ball strategy of Adkins and Rodgers that worked so well in the past"

Re: What is the point in HRK

We should give him a Wales shirt to wear during matches, he seems to play well for them. Agree with earlier post where he has bulked up, and this seems to have slowed him down in taking on players. I suspect he prefers to play behind a striker, but just plays where the manager puts him. He is not a ...

Re: Is Sean Morrison the only player....

Not really on track, but I was disappointed that we narrowly missed out on having Lambert & Butler playing for RFC at the same time. Could have resulted in some great headlines. Can anyone come up with any great double acts on a similar theme that did play together? Did Shane play with Simon? L...

Re: Official Deadline Day Thread......

I wonder whether we'd be just as concerned if we saw our new signings all being signed today?
If we'd seen coming in today : Pog, Guthrie, Gunter, McCleary & Shorey, bet we'd all be excited.

We have a decent squad which should have beaten Stoke and were unlucky not to get a point from Chelsea.

Re: Loanwatch 09-10

Evening guys. Just a quick update. I went to Gillingham v Yeovil tonight, and I have to say Alex McCarthy looks like he will one day be a superb goalkeeper. He is very tall, which surprised me but I don't know why :lol: In the first half, about 2 minutes before Gillingham scored (a penalty) he made...

Re: Reading's Unsung Heros

Gutted that last 2 posts beat me to it: Igoe and Viveash.

Also would add Martin Butler. Annoys me that Cureton gets so much more mention than Martin, who was a superb foil for him.

Newman been mentioned already.

Although I often read the comments on here I have not posted before because I am often appalled by the rubbish being ...

:? Ki-Hyeon plays on the left. Seol is a six-foot-tall left footed attacking midfielder who was born on 8th January 1979. He is generally a wide player, and is adept on both wings. He can also operate in the middle of midfield or up front. Looks like we're both right. He certainly played on the rig...

I heard Mr Mad has been talking to Charlie Dimmock.
He's chosen sandstone paving for the centre circle, decking in each of the goals plus a water feature near the East Stand.
