Forbury Lion The troll only has their selves to blame for all this, firstly because they made the lives of other people a misery with unwarranted attacks that crossed the line and secondly, because they were stupid enough to post a link on an Anything Else thread last week to a site that had their e-mail address and real name on :roll:

In their favour is the fact they attacked people of reasonable mind who maybe won't choose to fight fire with fire.

Genuine, honest & personal apologies would probably help.


Wait... Courtney is referring to ahem, a regular poster here?
Yes, although they've been a bit less regular in the past week for some reason.

I think this thread is the source of the abuse mentioned on twitter.

Courtney is a bell end to be fair. Tweets covered confirm it. Known fact he had links to a bitter employee at Reading FC which is where his transfer news was coming from but now exposed and connections clammed up he is struggling again...

JLow is inviting people to select their Reading team of the decade.

The only problem is that when you go to put a name on the form the poll that has been set up says the answer must be a number rather than a name.

What is the point of JLow's Q&A sessions? All we ever see are opinions and speculation; we can see them on here or Twitter. Talk to players/staff/directors as a journalist. Give us insights we don't know.

Gives an opportunity for fans of the club to share a view or an opinion.


Literally about 2% of Reading's fan base use HNA.

Forster above Long and Doyle? Kebe above Hunt? I appreciate simply picking the team from 05-08 or so is a bit boring, but it's probably fair given it was comfortably the best team this club has ever had. I'd maybe drop Sonko as he was never the same as his ACL. Similarly Sigurdsson was an exceptional talent who I'd put in above Harper (our favourite scapegoat).

So 9 out of the 11 in our team of the century will be from that team

Close one between those two but I think on the whole whilst Kebe could be unplayable at times, he could have some real stinkers whereas McCleary was always more consistent

So Low's latest news is an interview with Moore on a fans' twitter podcast.....

It's about this guy went out there and got some contacts and some news of his own.

He's a journalist - that's what he's paid to do.

Quite honestly I, or any number of fans, could go out there and do a better job than him.

Give him a little bit of a break, it's the middle of an international break. There is literally fcuk all to report but he still has to fill copy.

And anyway, I would have thought an interview with the club captain that covers what has been quite a turbulent 3 months, even if it is through another source, is still newsworthy, and as has already been discussed on here, Moore i likely to be more open with a non affiliated journalist.

How dare someone enjoy two weeks off with no proper football on :roll: The self entitlement of some people

I could understand in the last break because we had something to report and talk about, i.e. Gomes' sacking but there's literally nothing to report on right now as you say
