Snowflake Royal Yeah, but he's an idiot.

I'd rather win the Play Offs than the League anyway... though maybe not this year. :roll:


But that would be so typically Reading FC, play-off final past failures not completely laid to rest because the winning final is played behind closed doors!

Definitely getting way ahead of ourselves though!

Absolutely we are but isn't there some fact that every team to have equaled our start in the championship (no team having won their first 6) have finished in the playoffs except for Blackpool in 2013/14 who finished 20th.

Edit: oh wait Brighton finished 10th one year. My bad. But still. 11 teams have equaled our start and all but 2 finished top 6.

There is of course the infamous case of Millwall being top of the league in December and going on to be relegated.

CountryRoyal Sunderland have quite a lot to say about Wycombe :lol: i take it they’re not fans.

Looks like the play acting we saw last night is long established practice. Who would have thought that nice Gareth Ainsworth would produce a team of cheats?

That said, having seen the Sunderland documentary, SUFC fans are absolute twats and deserve to be where they are now.


I've known a few Sunderland fans and they have huge expectations but are as fickle as fcuk and when things aren't going right they are all to happy to prove they are one step below monkeys on the evolutionary scale. Utter fcuking twats.

I also understand they don’t possess any shirts suitable for wearing to football matches :)

Imagine the uproar though if fans were allowed back by then only to find a reduced capacity of about 20k with, as it’s a showpiece final, half of those tickets then going to sponsors, corporates and various football officials

He created Covid to get our fans out the stadium so the players could perform there and not just hear constant moaning.

Correct, we've only played on Tuesday and Saturday so far this season.

Some of the nonsense posted on the Rotherham forums. Apparently having 63% of the ball is enough to merit a win despite not doing anything with it.

They lost 3-0. Very tough to argue you deserve anything from a game when that’s the end result.

We scored more goals than they had shots on target

To be fair, a lot of the comments I've read seem to be bemoaning the fact that, whilst it, was an even game, we had the quality to create and take chances and keep it tight at the back that they lacked.

There's always a few idiots who equate possession to quality. We should know, we used to have one in the dugout.

Feel bad for them. Lots of comments saying that's the best football they've played for years.... and they still lost 3-0 to a Reading playing like crap and couldn't get into any kind of stride.
