Reading, Cureton and Evo stir the full range of emotions.

3 Oct

Reading visit Brentford on Saturday for a game that reignites the strongest of feelings, almost 15 years after their end of season trip to Griffin Park saw one team promoted to the Championship and the other leave with their players and fans distraught.

For those of you for who the memory of ‘that penalty’ against Doncaster is still a fresh one, this was a totally different pain.

To read the rest of this article, season 2014/15 is now available to download onto Kindle (and other electronic reading device) in full. Containing additional material and even some (poor) editing, you can get it here for less than the cost of a Griffin Park matchday programme or Balti Pie.

 Thanks for reading and all your comments over the course of the season. For now, I need to make more space on the site for any follow up. However, ‘close season’ will continue in full, further along.

    Reading, but more importantly the defeat to Stoke felt like the end of an era. It was clear that unless we went up, there would be a mass exodus. One of the low points, but not the lowest. For me that was 2007, when we went down, and there was no inter-season white knight like Ron Noades to give us hope as in 1998. And lest we forget, that was almost unanimously felt to be a good thing at the time. It was only some time after that we realised that Noades had not been opening his chequebook but plundering Brentford assets instead. Anyway, when we were relegated in 2007, I really thought it would be for the long term. In fact, at one stage, relegation to the Conference was not out of the question. How things have changed since then!
