Reading, Reading Between The Lines

  1. 7 months ago

    Well, despite our history of losing to the dregs and beating the title chasers, I really didn't expect us to beat the fake hoops last night. Having worked in the Camberley, Farnborough, Bracknell area for 20 odd years I know a lot of Reading Fakers. I've enjoyed listening to them telling me how their manager was bringing Barca style footy to the Mudjetski. Having watched them last night I can only conclude that they are really really deluded. I've enjoyed renewing their aquaintance immensley. From here on in their manager should be known as Jaap's Eye Stam - the man who will have you turning Japanese over his style of play before you know it........not!

  2. Haha, how good was last night? We looked like a totally different team out there and tore Reading apart. Beautiful goal, what a pass from Ryan Manning! Our typical crazy rollercoaster of a season continues.

  3. Love an away win. I was lucky enough to get invited by a load of Rangers lads who had a box there last night. Drinking from half 3. We were all hammered by kick off and the box was right down the home end with seats outside in a little private area. We purposely kept a lid on it until we scored - cue Pandemonium and loads of really pissed off fakers who then got subjected to an hour of us belting out songs and taking the piss. Great night and hilarious looking at their pissed off little faces.

    ONE JAMIE MACKIE!!!!!!!

  4. In fact the only thing missing was Sylla scoring so we could sing his name to MJ's Thriller complete with jacko dancing etc.

    yes, I was that pissed.

  5. You lucky dog! There would have been an additional irony if Sylla had scored at the Madejski...

    Camberly, Bracknell, Farnborough! I don't make many appearances in these towns, but I'm shocked you found any Reading fans.

  7. Bos Man, There are a fair few, but like myself they were commuting in. The M3/M4 corridor was full of the fakers. I guess they used to keep a lower profile before their "resurgence". It was always fun winding them up, and invariably really really easy.

    Take your word for it, always found these spots to be mainly Chelsea overspill towns with a handful of Rangers and Arsenal thrown in for good measure.

  9. The area was awash with Chelscum and Arse fans too. I even worked for a bloke who was a Cheski AND Brentford supporter. He took a lot of stick over the years; and deserved every moment of it too ;-) I think the Reading lot were generally quieter, but there were plenty of 'em about. I did find a few fellow R's, but reckon we were out numbered by the fakers. In this instance quality made up for quantity.
    Being a Bletchley boy, I was used to the London overspill effect. There were bloomin' hundreds of London team fans everywhere; along with the obligatory southern Manure and cess-'Pool fans.
