Can't believe there hasn't been a positive word for this crest. I do like the 80s gawdy block colour one, but for me this has been our best.

I really don't like the current one, and as someone said earlier, the Tilehurt End crest is a vast improvement on what we currently have.

Some lovely examples of improvements in this thread though. I do like a nice lion.

I think it should simply be:

"Reading FC", Blue letters on a white background.

RoyalBlue I like our current badge/crest. I think it's pretty distinctive.


Same - I’m a fan of our crest...like the blue & white hoops and it has a ball in it. I don’t like badges that don’t have a ball in them! My only issue is there’s a lot of red in it and I’m not sure what the relevance of red is to our club...is it a Royal thing?!

Good one, Millsy.

Maybe put it in comic sans?

I’m not fussed about the font tbh.

Looks like we're going to be getting a new one next year for the 150th anniversary!

I like it.

Probably not terribly relevant to this thread but a few tweets down there's a pic of Osho and it looks like his head is far too small for the rest of him.

I like it.


So do I.

I haven't bought a kit in years, but I think I might have to buy this one when it comes out as it will be a one-off special kit for the anniversary.

True. I'm holding onto my Elm Park green trees one. Might be worth £20 one day.

Some people have some really old ones though, I've seen disgusting yellow/blue hoops. No idea what that was from, probably an away kit before my time...

Away kit circa 1992-1994 I think.

Like what? All there is is an announcement that 150 years is launching shortly (unsurprising given 2021 is only 6/7 weeks away) and briefly in the “video” what might be the bottom most part of the current badge altered to say 1871-2021 with a “150 years” banner added underneath.

I like the idea more than anything, the presumed bottom bit I can see. Unless the rest of the crest is a picture of a pink dildo or something.

Ah ok so not too long before I became a regular. Will explain why I saw a few around, but less so in recent years.

Truly horrid shirt.

Has anyone superimposed the bottom part that's been released, on top of current badge and made it all gold?
