|WELCOME TO ROYALS RENDEZVOUS - THE 1871 CLUB|
The Royals Rendezvous – the 1871 Club was formed over the Christmas-New Year period of 2010-2011. Many of its initial members were regular contributors to the BBC 606 service – alas, no longer in operation – who wished for a more specialized Reading FC orientated forum, whilst maintaining the good spirited type of conversation and banter that the BBC tried to promote.
In its first two years of existence, the Royals Rendezvous is achieving outstanding success, with new members signing up continuously, and the member base itself extremely active. Over 500 members, over 70,000 posts is proof enough of the growing role of this specialist Reading FC fans forum web site. It is already recognized in other sporting circles as a major source of news and fan interaction (especially that related to Reading Football club of course), and has a strong and enthusiastic moderation team.
Royals Rendezvous has also developed fine relations with many other specialist football forums, especially with teams of our own league.

Just got back from the game.
Much different game to Saturdays, we looked a little tired in the first half and the closing down wasn't there as it was on Saturday. In saying that we could have been 3-0 up before going the goal down.
Harte's corners were causing absolute chaos in the Doncaster defence. We were attacking the goal at the far end of the away fans but it looked as if there were at least two efforts cleared off the line.
The Donny goal was a bit of a shambles. HRK got nutmegged out on the flank and then the ball across the box found it's way right to the far post where it was tapped in from 3 yards.
The second half saw a better tempo from Reading and we came out on the front foot, again our main threat came from set pieces and sure enough the goal eventually came from a Harte inswinging corner that Pearce craftily gave the defender enough of a shove in the back to make room to head home from a couple of yards.
The last 10 minutes again saw us with ample chances to wrap the game up but it was just one of those nights unfortunately.
All in all it wasn't one of Readings strongest performances but we were still head and shoulders above Doncaster.
What is so often a great source of supply to us, our wingers, just weren't in the game enough tonight.
Karacan was involved in everything in the centre of the park but my man of the match would go to Pearce.
Should have been three points but with the luck not running for us we have to be glad of coming back down the m1 with the point.

That's why I said I think we'll win the league ...
West Hams remaining games; Leeds(A) Middlesbrough(H) Burnley(A) Peterborough(A) Reading(H) Barnsley(A) Birmingham(H) Brighton (H) Bristol City (A) Leicester (A) Hull (H)
Southampton's remaining games; Millwall(A) Hull(H) Doncaster(H) Blackpool(A) Portsmouth(H) Crystal Palace(A)
Reading(H) Peterborough(A) Middlesbrough(A) Coventry(H)
We have; Barnsley(A) Peterborough(A) Blackpool(H) West Ham(A) Leeds(H) Brighton(A) Southampton(A) Nottingham Forest(H) Crystal Palace(H) Birmingham(A)
All of these games are equally hard but if we beat Barnsley on Saturday and West Ham slip up against Leeds imagine the pressure of their next games against Middlesbrough. The same goes for Southampton who's next two games are very difficult. I'm not saying are next 2 fixtures are hard, all of them are hard! I'm just saying we have the least pressure because none of us expected to be in this position. All the pressure is on West ham and Saints.
These last 10 games are going to be very tense however exciting and I can't wait for Barnsley on Saturday!

||A bit late but no time to write before; thought we were a bit tired and out of sorts; the inability to keep the ball or pass to man in the first half could have cost us dearly. Harte nevertheless was sublime, and I thought Hunt worked really hard and deserved a goal for his efforts. Roberts tried a to put himself about bit but I thought his touch was poor, and ALF looked hungry when he came on. Overall I thought it was a fair result against a surprisingly lively Donny side. Chimbonda responded well to the abuse he received and even acknowledged the away end when Hunty was down injured. El Haj Douf really is a nasty piece of work; hopefully we'll never see him again! In summary not a disaster; up our game by 10% and get a bit more luck and we're at Old Trafford next season.|
